Whether you just got a new iPhone or you’re tired of untangling your earbuds, there’s never been a better time to go wireless. The gold standard of Bluetooth-connected headphones — Apple Airpods — just got majorly discounted, as part of Walmart's early Black Friday bonanza.
These second-gen Apple AirPods with the wireless charging case are marked down to $89 (originally $119). Sure, you can pay twice that for the third-generation AirPods that just came out in October, but we think this is a great deal.
Walmart is dropping new deals each week to help you avoid the Black Friday frenzy and the holiday shortages.

Apple AirPods offer a seamless syncing experience with just about any iPhone, iPad, or Mac laptop or desktop computer. This is due to Apple’s unique design and technology that allows AirPods to “talk” to iOS and MacOS devices for automatic pairing every time you pop open the charging case, thanks to Apple’s “magical” H1 chip. The buds even know when they’re in your ears — they pause the song or podcast you’re listening to when you take one out.
One five-star reviewer raved, "Oh my gosh. Love these things. They have really easy setup, and all i had to do was open up the lid next to my iPhone SE 2020 and it popped right ip to set up...They have such good battery life and sound, when you have them turned up all the way, the bass and sound quality is so nice."
Another fan said, "These are extremely useful and they stay in your ear perfectly (my ears don't usually fit normal earbuds)."
Not only do the AirPods sync with iPhones, they boast world-class audio quality with unparalleled clarity and rich sound. Apple’s Siri voice assistant comes built-in, too. Meanwhile, you’ll get five hours of battery life on a single charge, compared to the previous model’s three hours. In fact, you can get up to three hours of battery life on just 15-to-20 minutes of charging time.
However, it’s not all roses for these Apple AirPods. While they are sleek and easy to use, this pair doesn’t have any noise-canceling features.
But if you’re looking for earbuds with seamless integration with iPhone, iPad, MacBook or even Apple Watch (they’re also compatible with most Android smartphones via Bluetooth, but without automatic pairing), the Apple AirPods and charging case (2nd gen) are a great fit. All that’s left to figure out is your next playlist.
