Love them or hate them, AirPods are the hottest tech accessory around. (Seriously, have you seen Henry Goulding or Jake Gyllenhaal wear the covetable pair? It’s about to get steamy.) While you’d have to be living under a rock to have never heard of them, you probably haven’t taken the plunge and picked up a pair of your own. I mean, at $200, these wireless earbuds are by no means cheap.
But if you want to jump on the bandwagon for less, you’re in luck. Amazon’s Prime Day(s) might be happening from July 12 through July 13, but the Everything Store’s already slashing the prices of Apple’s AirPods and AirPods Pro.
Turns out, the hype surrounding Apple’s AirPods extends beyond their sleek design and stealth sex appeal.
Decked out with an intelligent H1 headphone chip, you can easily pair up your AirPods with your smartphone. This fancy chip even uses optical sensors and motion accelerometers to detect whether they’re actually in your ears. Since Apple’s AirPods are Siri-compatible, you can ask the smart system your most burning questions. (Like, whether or not Henry Goulding is single…just saying.) Best of all? Amazon’s taking $34 off the asking price.
If you want to take your headphones game up a couple of notches, you might want to check out the Apple AirPods Pro. Apple unveiled this upgraded pair in 2019—and it’s easy to see why they’ve become the go-to pick for avid listeners. The AirPods Pro has two microphones in each ear to offer active noise cancellation. In fact, this set is so good at its job that you can call your mom on a windy day and she’ll actually be able to hear you. But, if you’re walking around at night and actually want to hear the world around you, its Transparency Mode will give you some peace of mind.
This pair also comes with three silicone tips and a “Fit Test” to ensure your buds won’t go flying out of your ears. (The worst, right?) And, best of all? Thanks to its charging case, which offers a 24-hour battery life, you can literally wear these all day long. At $249, the AirPods Pro is more expensive; however, Amazon is currently listing them at $199.
Already have a pair of AirPods or AirPods Pro? You might want to consider picking up the AirPods Max. They have all the bells and whistles of your favorite earbuds, but the over-ear construction will show your chatty coworkers that you’re busy. Right now, you can score select colorways for $70 off.
Despite their discounts, none of Apple’s AirPods headphones are exactly chump change. We’d be remiss to ignore the economic privilege that comes with buying this fancy pair. That said, if you’re looking to upgrade your next listening session without blowing your entire budget, now’s a better time to buy.
