All you have to do is connect and pair your AirPods Bluetooth device to your Apple TV streamer, and you can enjoy the intimate sounds without worrying about your neighbors or anyone in the house.

Apple released its newest AirPods Bluetooth earbuds with the AirPods 3. The 3rd generation version of the audio device includes HD FaceTime calls, Spatial Audio, Adaptive EQ, and IPX4 Water and Sweat Resistance. You can even use it for up to 30 hours of battery life. With the AirPods 3, watching on your Apple TV device will give you an amazing audio experience, especially since it blocks out ambient noise with its noise-cancelling feature to give you full focus on your streaming.
