Best Apple AirPods deals on Amazon now

Apple AirPods typically go on sale during Amazon Prime Day, but there's no need to wait until late July to cop a pair. Apple AirPods prices are now significantly below Apple retail at Amazon right now.

Apple AirPods (2nd generation): $100

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)

Just about anyone will love these budget-minded Apple AirPods. They're not the latest model, but they're still one of the most sought-after earbud models on the market. 

Retailing for $159 at Apple, they're on sale at Amazon right now for $100. These AirPods boast more than 24 hours total listening time (with the wireless charging case), a foolproof, one-tap setup for Apple device owners and a low-latency wireless connection (for full immersion when consuming movies and music).

Apple AirPods with MagSafe case (3rd generation): $169


The latest generation of Apple AirPods are a nice upgrade over the second-generation model. They support 3D spatial audio with dynamic head tracking. You get more listening time, too -- up to 30 hours with the included MagSafe charging case.

Apple AirPods Pro: $175

Apple AirPods Pro

Upgrade your old AirPods to the Apple AirPods Pro. Compared to older models, these AirPods fit active noise cancelation technology, water resistance and hearing health tracking in a more-compact, better-fitting design. They're also lauded for their great sound quality. But all this quality comes at a steep price -- specifically $250. That's why the deal we found at Amazon is a big deal. 

Now at $175, the Apple AirPods Pro are a great deal for those with some flexibility in their budget.
