There are some amazing discounts on Apple’s AirPods if you know where to shop. The second-generation AirPods Pro is now available at many retailers. This means that the previous-generation Pro and other models can be purchased for less.
We’ve curated a list of the best offers currently available for each model. This includes the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, as well as the AirPods Pro.
Best AirPods deals (second generation)
Apple will lower the price of its second-generation AirPods, now the entry level model, from $159 to $129 in 2021. The model that comes with the wired charging case charges using a standard Lightning cord. We found the easy-to use, second-gen AirPods offer reliable battery life and great wireless performance, even though they are older.
Apple’s most budget-friendly pair of earbuds has dropped to $79.99. However, they are currently on sale at Amazon, Walmart and Verizon for $99 (a $30 discount). If you prefer the model that comes with a wireless charging case, Adorama sells it for $139.99 (20% off).
The AirPods are Apple’s second-generation of true wireless earbuds. They’re also the cheapest AirPods model.
Best AirPods deals (third generation)
Supporting Apple’s MagSafe tech and priced at $179, Apple AirPods’ third-gen AirPods have a subtler design. They also offer improved features such as sweat and water resistance and dynamic head tracking.
Apple quietly released a slightly cheaper third-generation AirPods option in September that came with a Lightning only charging case. This option is currently available for $10 less at Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart. We recommend buying the MagSafe compatible model at B&H Photo, for $179. You can also get it at Sam’s Club or Costco, for $170, if you’re an existing member.
