AirPods deals save you so much

AirPods are an accessory every Apple fan needs. They work brilliantly with iPhone, iPad and Mac, letting the wearer enjoy music or podcasts wherever they go.

And they’re now surprisingly affordable. Amazon has brand-new second-generation AirPods for just $89.99 for a limited time only. That’s a whopping $69.01 off the original price — 43%.

If you’re want the latest improvements, you can pick upyou can pick up new third-generation AirPods for $139.99 and save $39.01.

AirPods Pro are Apple’s top-on-the-line in-ear headphones, with active noise cancellation and an Adaptive EQ. And you can own a pair now for $179 from Amazon. That’s a savings of $70, or 28% off the standard price.

If over-the-ear headphones are more your thing, there’s AirPods Max. They offer the best-quality sound of any of these options, and they’re now available for as low as $455.99 — a generous $93 off the usual price. Note that various colors come in a different price points, and Amazon’s deals on AirPods Max seem somewhat volatile.

Don’t settle for less

I avoided AirPods for years. I used cheap Bluetooth headphones, telling myself that Apple’s couldn’t be that much better. But then I tried AirPods 3, and I was won over.

The sound quality is better than I was expecting. And they make switching between my Apple devices incredibly easy — something most third-party earbuds don’t do well at all. And they last most of the day without needing a recharge.

Whether buying for a loved one or yourself, take advantage of these AirPods deals now, before they disappear.
