Apple’s AirPods are among the most popular headphones on the market. They’re compact, easy to pair with your devices, and they offer reliable connectivity, which can sometimes be a problem with truly wireless earphones. So there’s a chance that you might be looking for a deal on them.
Surprisingly, they’re no stranger to the occasional price cut. There are commonly discounts on even the more expensive AirPods Pro, which offer noise cancellation and better sound than the standard second-generation model.
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 Amazon. Normally $159, they’re $139. For context, we’ve seen them fall to $129, but they could fall even more as we approach the holiday season.
AIRPODS (WITH WIRELESS CHARGING CASE) DEALS
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. Most retailers commonly offer a $30 discount on Apple’s AirPods that include a Qi-ready wireless charging case. But more impressive right now is Amazon’s discount that doubles this price cut down to $140, which is the lowest price that we’ve seen yet.
AIRPODS PRO DEALS
Apple’s high-end truly wireless earbuds, the AirPods Pro, are frequently available for less than their $249 retail price. At most retailers, that price drop is only $15. Historical pricing data indicates that there hasn’t been much fluctuation in price for this model — though, Staples raised the bar with a $50 discount that ended on August 1st. We’ll be keeping an eye out for more deals like this, but until then the $15 off sale at Amazon is reliable.
Compared to the options above, the AirPods Pro have better sound quality, noise cancellation, and coming at some point is Apple’s new spatial audio feature. We think they’re the best wireless earbuds that iPhone owners should buy.
