AirPods are the most popular option for wireless earbuds, and for good reason. They sound great, pair perfectly with your iPhone, and are super convenient. Not to mention, they slot in perfectly to Apple’s ecosystem with slick integrations such as moving between devices and access to Siri. And during Amazon’s Prime Day event across the UK and US, you can save up to 29% on the AirPods range.
If you’ve been after a pair of Apple AirPods Pro, there’s no better time. From Amazon US, they’re down 20% from $249 to $199 – a saving of $50!
From Amazon UK, you can score a 16% reduction on the premium buds. This brings them down to £209 rather than the regular ticket of £249. And this deal is for the latest second-gen version of the earbuds.
AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) haven’t seen many discounts since their release last September, so this is very nearly the cheapest they’ve been. It’s rare to see too many discounts on Apple products, but AirPods have bucked that trend for the last year or so. Our review saw Apple’s latest premium buds awarded a perfect five star score, noting that the second-gens are a “compelling upgrade” from the first edition Pros.
We praised their noise cancellation, versatility, and convenient feature set – all of which saw improvements in the second-generation. Active noise cancellation saw a step-up, with refined cancellation and new mics. Transparency Mode also got revamped, with an adaptive version that’ll switch on and off depending on your environment. Plus a new case brings a lanyard attachment, speaker, and Find My support. All of that’s on top of a set of wireless buds that already sound great.
Or if you’d rather scale back on the features (and the price), you can opt for Apple’s regular AirPods. These buds sound just as great, but ditch a few features. You won’t find touch controls, noise cancellation, Transparency Mode, Bluetooth 5.3 or as big of a battery. But, the third-gen AirPods sound pretty on par, and even manage to pack MagSafe and Find My into the case. They’re still a great set of buds, and we scored them four stars out of five in our review.
And if you’re still looking for even cheaper AirPods, you’re in luck!
You can get the previous second-gen AirPods from Amazon US, down to $90 from $130. They’re a few years old now and miss out on quite a few features. But, they still offer great sound, top convenience, and are your most affordable option.
And from Amazon UK they’re now just £99, down from £140 – a 26% discount.
