Apple 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 $129. This is nearly the lowest price we’ve seen yet, though they may get cheaper as we approach the holidays.
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, and that’s currently the sale price. But keep a look-out for deals that double this price cut down to $140, which is the lowest price that we’ve seen yet.
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. Though, the price has fallen to $200 a few times now. Both Amazon and Staples are offering the best price yet on Apple’s AirPods Pro wireless earbuds. They’re normally $250, but you can get $50 off right now. If you aren’t getting at least $30 off the cost, I’d personally hold off on buying them.
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.
Update September 14th, 10:05AM ET: Two new AirPods Pro deals have gone live at Staples and Amazon, and the AirPods that include a wireless charging case are now cheaper than was previously listed.
