When it comes to earbuds for music, there’s no denying the popularity of AirPods. Apple’s famous all-white earbuds are as much a status symbol as they are an essential go-to for recording artists, podcasters and music producers alike. But we recommend them for everyday use as well, whether you’re listening to music on your daily commute or need a pair of wireless earbuds for your next FaceTime call or Zoom.
While AirPods used to cost a pretty penny, they’re now available for less than $200. Apple products never go on sale on the company’s own site, but Amazon has them on sale for 23% off for a limited time. This deal won’t last, so you’ll have to move fast to get your AirPods at a deep discount for the holidays.

Apple’s second generation AirPods Pros are currently $189 at Amazon and Walmart (third-generation AirPods $149.99 at Amazon). Regularly $249, the AirPods deal gets you a 24% discount on the popular earbuds. Apple’s newest AirPods Pro are equipped with an H2 chip that “pushes advanced audio performance even further, resulting in smarter noise cancellation and more immersive sound,” according to the product description. The AirPods offer personalized spacial sound, quick access to Siri, up to two times more Active Noise Cancellation, up to six hours of listening time without the charging case and 30 hours with the case. The AirPods Pro also include four pairs of silicone tips (XS, S, M and L).
Apple AirPods Max are usually $549 for a new pair, but you can find them on sale for $479.99 at Amazon. You can also purchase AirPods Max on sale at Walmart and Best Buy, although prices and availability may vary depending on the retailer.
The AirPods Pro are one of the newer wireless earbuds in the AirPods family, and musicians are snapping them up thanks to the superb audio quality (think: clear, crisp sound), and the buds’ Active Noise Cancellation feature, which blocks out exterior noise for a quieter, more focused listening session.
Traveling for the holidays? AirPods Pro are also great for travel, running and working out, with a sweat-resistant coating worth considering. (They’re not entirely waterproof like some earbuds, so you wouldn’t want to go swimming in them). Interchangeable silicone tips allow you to find the perfect seal for your ears, and everything fits into a tiny charging case, which now gets you up to 30 hours of battery life before you need to plug in. And don’t forget to keep them clean.
Apple is known for their high-tech and high-design products, and the AirPods Pro are not only a fan favorite, but an industry fave as well. Need further proof? According to a report from last year, AirPods Pro sales exceeded 90 million units during the 2021 holiday season.
Get the Apple AirPods Pro with H2 chip and double the noise cancellation for $259. Another deal: The 2nd gen. AirPods are even cheaper, discounted right now to just $99 at Amazon and Walmart. Note that the regular AirPods won’t have the Active Noise Cancellation technology, but all the other features are there. See full sale details here.
