The best Apple AirPods deals at Amazon

Great news for shoppers looking to snag a pair of Apple-made headphones: The AirPods and AirPods Pro models are both on sale right now. They're not an official part of the Amazon Prime Day, so you can get these deals even if you don't have a Prime membership.

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation): $90

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)

The second-generation Apple AirPods may not be the latest model, but they're still one of the most sought-after earbuds on the market. Retailing for $159 at Apple, they boast more than 24 hours total listening time with the wireless charging case, a fool-proof one-tap setup for Apple device owners and a low-latency wireless connection for full immersion when consuming movies and music.

These Apple AirPods models are currently out of stock. However, Amazon has been fairly consistent about restocking top-sellers. Check back soon.

The Apple AirPods Pro have made headlines by fitting active noise cancelation technology, water resistance and hearing health tracking into a more compact, better fitting design. It's also lauded for its great sound quality. But all that comes at a steep price - specifically $250, which is why this deal on Amazon is a big one.

Now at $170, the Apple AirPods Pro are at a major discount on Amazon.
