If you’ve been searching far and wide for the best AirPods Pro deal, well, it’s officially here. The Apple AirPods Pro, which add active noise-cancelling capabilities and better sound compared to the omnipresent first-generation AirPods, usually cost $250. But for some reason, they’re cheaper. Much cheaper. Twenty-one percent cheaper. You can now get AirPods Pro, formerly known as “the expensive AirPods” for just $197. What are you waiting for?
Apple AirPods Pro (was $250, now 21% off)
The Apple AirPods Pro are as close to perfect headphones as Apple has released. Like the older AirPods, the new AirPods Max, and extended cousins in the Beats family, the AirPods Pro are stunningly easy to pair, charge, and use (with Apple devices, of course). Even at full price, the AirPods Pro offer an impressively immersive sonic experience. The active noise cancelling works really well, and the sound is full. They aren’t fully waterproof or sweat-proof, like some of our favorite workout headphones, but they’re sealed enough to handle a workout—or a quick duck into the rain. And the Pro’s multiple silicone ear-tips make sure they fit more ears than the non-Pro version.
If you are an Apple user toying with the idea of getting a pair, even a little, this AirPods Pro deal is your best chance to score them at a discount for awhile. It’s not the cheapest price ever—$197 is about $27 more than the lowest price we’ve seen since the headphones were released in 2019. That discount happened during Amazon’s wild Cyber Week deals. Maybe we’ll see an AirPods Pro deal like this again then, but do you really want to wait seven months to save a few bucks? It’s time to take the plunge.
