Apple is not one to slash prices, especially on its unrivaled wireless earbuds. So when we heard about this Amazon sale on AirPods, we just had to get in touch. We're talking markdowns on the AirPods (2nd generation) as well as discounts on AirPods Pros, with savings of up to $69.
That's not where the sale ends, though. Amazon is also offering deals on Apple AirTags. In case you're not familiar, AirTags are just a great way to keep track of your stuff: keys, backpacks and the like. You attach an AirTag to anything that tends to go missing, then next time you're desperately looking for that item, you can find it using your iPhone.
At these discounted prices, these devices are practically guaranteed to sell out, so don't hesitate. Amazon will give you free shipping on all these items. Of course, ff you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get speedy delivery too. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.
Save $69: Apple AirPods Pro
We all know that 70,000+ five-star fans on Amazon can't be wrong. The Apple AirPods Pro are the absolute pinnacle in audio and comfort. And unlike previous versions of the iconic buds, the AirPods Pro feature active noise cancelling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter. If you've been considering a pair, now is the moment. They're on sale for a discount of $69.
They custom-fit any ear, with three (included) different-size silicone tips. Expect a comfy fit and rest assured these buds won’t slip out halfway through a workout. (Use the included 'Ear Tip Fit Test' so you can learn which size is best for you and your particular ear shape.)
As for the audio: "The sound on these sounds like headphones surround sound, way better than most headphones and earbuds I use," says one of tens of thousands of happy shoppers. "Great bass, clarity, and the spatial audio and noise cancellation is decent and a bonus.... Get these airpods you won’t regret it."
Says one another fan, "For noise cancellation, they’re more effective than I thought they would be. They are best at blocking out white noise — bus engines, office sounds, fans, etc. They are good at voices if it's just people talking in a group at a normal volume."
AirTags basically use "find my iPhone" type technology to help you keep track of other things. Attach one to your keys, bag or wallet, and rest easy. If you misplace the object, you'll be able to find it, as long as you have an iPhone 11 (or later model). This is a life-changer for those of us who tend to space out about where we put critical items.
AirTags are coin-sized and easy to use, via the Find My app on any iOS device. You can even force the AirTag to emit a chime to help you pinpoint an object's exact location. A pack of four, which normally sells for $99, is on sale right now for $89.
"Love these," says one of 15,800+ five-star fans. "Son is always misplacing keys and wallet. We also got an insert for his wallet. The extra one I have put on the dog collar!"
Still haven't taken the plunge on AirPods, because of the price? This may be the deal for you. Substantially less expensive than AirPod Pros with many of the same features and talents, these second-gen AirPods are on sale for only $100 — and they've amassed a stunning 443,000+ positive reviews on Amazon. You'll get premium audio, and more than 24 hours total listening time with the charging case.
"They are just amazing," says one fan. "These are the best pair of wireless earphones I ever came across.... They are so easy to connect! Once I connected them to my iPhone, they were seamlessly connected to my other apple devices...The battery life is definitely impressive, I need to charge the case every 2 days. And it's easy to carry everywhere, it being so small...The sound quality is crisp and the connection is smooth...."
