Here are the cheapest AirPods offers available right now.

There’s almost always a deal to be had.

If you know where to look, you can often find fantastic deals on Apple’s famous — but sometimes costly — AirPods. Since Apple introduced the third-generation AirPods last year and presented its new portfolio, the beginning price of the second-generation, entry-level device has dropped from $159 to $129. Furthermore, several merchants have substantially discounted the second-generation AirPods as well as the more costly AirPods Pro and Max, which feature noise cancellation and greater sound quality than the regular device.

In recent months, we’ve even noticed some large reductions on the third-generation model, which, although not bearing the “Pro” designation, resembles the AirPods Pro more than the original model’s long-stemmed design. We’ll go through the greatest bargains on each model, including the entry-level AirPods, AirPods Pro, third-generation AirPods, and AirPods Max.

THE BEST ENTRY-LEVEL AIRPODS (SECOND-GEN) DEALS

Apple reduced the list price of the second-generation AirPods — now the entry-level device — from $159 to $129. However, it currently only sells the model with a wired charging case, which charges with a normal Lightning cable. Despite their age, we discovered that the simple, second-generation AirPods still provide excellent wireless performance and dependable battery life, making them an excellent choice if you can live without a wireless charging case.

In the past, Apple’s most cheap set of earbuds has dropped to as low as $89. However, they are now only available for roughly $99 at Amazon, Target, and Walmart. B&H Photo also sells the model with the wireless charging case for $129.99 ($70 off), but bear in mind that the third-generation model is only $30 extra.

THE BEST AIRPODS (THIRD-GEN) DEALS

Apple’s newest true wireless earphones are compatible with the company’s MagSafe technology. The shorter stems also contribute to a more discreet look, while enhanced sound and features such as sweat and water resistance, support for spatial audio with dynamic head tracking, and increased battery life make them a welcome upgrade over the previous generation.

Deals on the third-generation device were previously difficult to come by, although we did see them drop to $139.99 between Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Unfortunately, Apple’s newest AirPods are now only available for $159.99 at B&H Photo, a bargain that will continue through July 18th. If the sale has ended by the time you read this, you can still grab them for roughly $169 at Walmart and Target. However, considering that the AirPods Pro is also on sale for $169.99 (albeit most likely for a short time), it’s a better idea to get them instead.

Similar in appearance to their sleeker sibling, the AirPods Pro, the latest entry-level AirPods boast a new charging case and shorter stems. They’re also water resistant, unlike the 2019 model, and sport better battery life.

THE BEST AIRPODS PRO DEALS

The AirPods Pro, Apple’s premium true wireless earbuds, are the greatest wireless earbuds an iPhone owner can get, regardless of price. They boast improved sound quality than the previous generations, active noise cancellation, and a MagSafe-ready charging case. The earbuds also have interchangeable silicone tips and enable Apple’s spatial audio function, which gives a realistic surround sound impression to certain materials.

Last year, Apple released a new AirPods Pro configuration with a wireless charging case that, like the third-generation AirPods, uses Apple’s MagSafe technology. The noise-canceling earphones are normally $249, but they’re presently available for roughly $169.99 at Amazon, Walmart, and Target, which is around $10 more than their best-ever price.

THE BEST AIRPODS MAX DEALS

The AirPods Max isn’t the famous in-ears that have come to be associated with the AirPods brand. They’re huge and opulent, made of aluminum, steel, and a mesh fabric that keeps you comfy even during long listening sessions. They also have good noise cancellation, Apple’s spatial audio capability, and broad, balanced sound, however, they trail below some of its competitors in terms of bass response. They aren’t the greatest noise-canceling headphones for most people (blame the $550 price tag), but it’s difficult to find a set of Bluetooth headphones that sound better and have more accessible controls.

Although Woot just reduced the price of the AirPods Max to $409, prices have now risen across the board.

If you live near a Micro Center, you can also get the pink model for $434.99 or the black and blue variants for $444.99.
