Apple's AirPods are among the most popular headphones on the market. They are compact, easy to pair with your devices, and offer reliable connectivity, which can sometimes be a problem with truly wireless headphones. So there is a possibility that you are looking for a deal for them.
Surprisingly, they're no stranger to the occasional price cut – even the more expensive AirPods Pro, which offer noise cancellation and better sound than the standard second-generation model, are usually $ 20 below the usual price.
We'll go through all three of the current models listed below, including the second generation AirPods, the more expensive second generation AirPods with a wireless charging case, and finally the AirPods Pro.
You can currently find the best price for the cheapest AirPods from Apple at several retailers such as Best Buy, Amazon, B&H Photo, Target and Walmart. It's usually $ 159, or $ 139. We haven't seen the price drop below $ 129. So this is not the worst time to invest.

A number of retailers are offering a $ 30 discount on Apple's AirPods, which include a Qi-enabled wireless charging case. You need to provide your own wireless charger to take advantage of this model's main function (if you can't use it, you just get the cheaper option above), but even the best ones are quite cheap. These usually cost $ 199, but you can get them on Best Buy, Amazon, Target, and Walmart for $ 169.
Apple's truly wireless high-end earphones, the AirPods Pro, are often retailed for less than $ 249. For some retailers, this drop in price is only $ 15, but right now you can save them on Google Shopping for a little over $ 20. Historical price data suggests that there have been no major price fluctuations for this model, although it is possible that we will save another $ 10 at some point this year.
Compared to the options above, AirPods Pro offer better sound quality, noise cancellation and eventually Apple's new spatial audio feature. We believe that they are the best wireless earbuds that iPhone owners should buy.
