Apple’s AirPods are amongst the market’s most popular headphones. They are compact, easy to pair with your devices, and they offer reliable connectivity, which can be a problem with truly wireless earphones at times. So there’s a chance you could look for a deal on them.
Surprisingly, they ‘re no stranger to the occasional price cut — even the more expensive AirPods Pro that offers noise cancellation and better sound than the standard second-generation model is usually around $20 off its usual price.
We’ll run through all three of the current models below, including the second-generation AirPods, the more expensive second-generation AirPods that include a wireless charging case, and finally, the AirPods Pro.
You can currently find the best price on Apple’s most affordable AirPods at several retailers, like Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo, Target, and Walmart. Normally $159, they’re $139. For context, we haven’t seen them fall in price below $129, so this isn’t the worst time to invest.
AirPods (with wireless charging case) deals
An assortment of retailers is offering a $30 discount on Apple’s AirPods that include a Qi-ready wireless charging case. You’ll need to provide your own wireless charging pad to take advantage of this model’s key feature (if you have no use for it, just get the more affordable option above), but even the best ones are fairly inexpensive. These normally cost $199, but you can score them for $169 at Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and Walmart.
AirPods Pro deals
Apple’s truly wireless, high-end earbuds, the AirPods Pro, are often available for less than their retail price of $249. At a few retailers, that price drop is just $15, but you can find them at Google Shopping right now for a little more than $20 off. Historical pricing data show that there was not much price fluctuation for this model, although it is possible that at some point this year we might see another $10 off.
Compared to the above options, the AirPods Pro has better sound quality, noise cancellation, and Apple’s new spatial audio feature is coming at some point. We believe they are the best wireless earbuds iPhone owners need to buy.
