Apple released the latest iteration of its wireless earbuds—the AirPods Pro— in late 2019. But right now, all of the previous AirPod models—and even the new AirPods Pro—are discounted. The thing is, those earlier AirPods are still among the best wireless earbuds available anywhere. So if you haven’t made the jump to wireless earbuds, now’s your moment—especially if you use an iPhone, an iPad or a MacBook.
AirPods seamlessly pair with these Apple products and can easily sync with iMac desktops too. You don’t have to do a thing. Thanks in part to a special type of chip (H1), your AirPods link to your device as soon as you open up their charging case. That’s what sets these buds apart. Well, that plus superior audio and sleek design.
Read on for the AirPods on sale right now:
With the phenomenal sound you’d expect from Apple, the best bargain on the AirPod menu is the standard Apple AirPods with charging case—now just $130 at Amazon—that’s $29 off the original price. While the buds are wireless themselves, you need to plug in the case to charge them.
Once juiced, these buds instantly pair with your iPhone. No scrolling, no fiddling with settings. You’re good to go. And you can expect a whopping five hours of battery life.
This model of Apple AirPods comes with a wireless charging case. How does it work? Place the case on just about any Qi-wireless charging pad or stand, no plug or wire required, for a full charge.
You can still count on a long (five hour) battery life. And don’t worry if you run out of juice while away from home—just pop these babies back into their charging case for 15 minutes and you’ll get up to three more hours of battery life. The Apple AirPods with wireless charging case are on sale—$30 off the regular price; get them now for just $169.
At the top of the food chain are the Apple AirPods Pro. This new model features noise-canceling capabilities, plus silicone ear tips for a more secure fit. The Apple AirPods Pro are certainly an investment (and improvement from the entry-level pair), but Verizon has knocked $30 off the price as an enticement, bringing them down to $220.
Yes, it’s steep, but it’s also the cheapest price we’ve seen yet for these earbuds, while the comfort upgrade makes a big difference—especially if you always listen to music or podcasts.
