If you've been thinking about splurging on a pair of AirPods, here are some places where you can get them for less than $160. Note that the prices listed here may change over time.
Apple quietly released an updated version of their AirPods Pro, now with a MagSafe Charging Case. Apple's true wireless AirPods Pro earphones are vastly superior to the standard model, with active noise cancellation, which helps to block out unwanted noise and give you a more clear music listening experience. Each earbud also uses a custom driver and a high dynamic range amplifier to improve sound quality beyond what the original AirPods are able to produce.
Black Friday and Cyber Week are all about snagging the best deal on popular products, but great deals can be found at other times of the year, too. To help you know more about what you're buying, and to help you make the most educated choice possible, here's what you need to know about Apple AirPods sales.
Although many Apple customers only have great things to say about the popular wireless earbuds, many can’t bring themselves to shell out more than $120 (plus tax, depending on the generation you’re interested in) for the audio experience they provide.
This AirPods case comes in four different hues of leather to give a sleek look to your earbuds. The microfiber interior will keep your AirPods from getting scratched, while the leather exterior is designed to patina over time so your case looks great no matter how long you’ve had it. The case is available for all AirPods models.
The AirPods Pro just hit their lowest price ever — $159 at Walmart and Amazon, retailing for just $159. Meanwhile, the entry-level AirPods hit as low as $89. And although the deal is no longer active, we're guessing at least one retailer will offer AirPods Black Friday deals at that price again today through Cyber Monday.
The updated AirPods Pro with the MagSafe case are on sale for $159 at both Amazon and Walmart. If you're a Sam's Club member, you can grab the Pros for $150 with $70 of Scan & Go Savings starting today. These offer the best sound quality and fit of any of Apple's earbuds, and now they have a magnetic wireless charging case that's compatible with MagSafe accessories.
Several editions of Apple AirPods are on sale at Amazon as part of its release of early Black Friday deals. While some versions are already sold out, several are in stock and marked down. The wired charging Apple AirPods, the AirPods Max headphones, and the updated AirPods Pro are discounted and up to 25 percent off.
While Black Friday's official date is November 26 this year, most Black Friday sales will be well underway by then. For the past few years, we've seen sales kicking off earlier and earlier with some even launching in October in 2020. That means you can shop early, and beat the rush later on. With production and shipping delays likely, that's not a bad idea this year especially if you can find a retailer offering some kind of Black Friday price guarantee.
Last year, Walmart kicked off its Black Friday sale with an incredible deal on the AirPods Pro, which brought them down to their lowest ever price. Costing $249 at launch, the retailer slashed the price of Apple's noise-cancelling earbuds to just $159.99 - and you could get the AirPods Pro at their lowest price in the UK, too.
Amazon was offering the deepest discounts of the year, so several AirPods versions sold out. The first model that sold out was Apple’s AirPods 2 with Wired Charging Case, but they’re now back in stock and back on sale with a huge discount that slashes them to just $109. The other model that sold out should be beyond obvious since it sells out all the time. It’s Apple’s beloved AirPods Pro, which are the #1 best-selling headphones among our readers. They also happen to be among the best-selling earphones on the planet.
All version of AirPods easily sync to all of your Apple devices via Bluetooth, and can play, pause or skip with a simple double-tap motion (they’ll pause automatically if you take them out of your ears). For a true hands-free experience you can summon Siri with a quick, “Hey, Siri!” voice command.
According to an early flyer detailing its “Black Friday Super Sale” (despite Black Friday not being until a week later), Shoppers Drug Mart is offering Apple’s AirPods Pro (likely with wireless charging case and not MagSafe) for $279.99, with a $100 store gift card, essentially taking the price down to $179, shares RFD user ‘hill15’.
The headphones are in stock now on Amazon and ready to ship, with a delivery window between March 22-26. The new AirPods Pro launched in 2021, and are essentially the same as the 2019 model with the addition of the new MagSafe Charging Case.
Maybe you’re an ultra-marathoner who is out training for hours at a time. Or, you’re preparing for a long flight and need the longest run time possible. On the other hand, you could be including your earbuds for your one-hour workouts, not really needing a long-running battery as long as the sound quality is good.
The latest line of earbuds has a new range of impressive features that make them an improvement on the OG AirPods. They have a shorter stem, have longer battery life (six hours) and, much like the AirPods Pro, boast spatial audio and the tech giant’s adaptive EQ feature.
Apple refreshed the AirPods Pro this fall with a new model that comes with a MagSafe Charging Case, and no other changes to the headphones. Although this is the newest version of the AirPods Pro, they're already seeing rock-bottom discounts and routinely beat the price on the 2019 non-MagSafe version.
A year ago, AirPods Pro discounts were unthinkable. The high-end Apple accessory, widely regarded as the best set of earbuds you can buy, were new to the market and in high demand. It was sometimes difficult to find them in stock at all, even through early 2020, and discounts were extremely rare even heading into the summer.
This year’s Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales are set to give retailers a much needed boost in the aftermath of extended lockdowns; with the Australian Retailers Association reporting that shoppers are tipped to spend a whopping $5.4 billion over the course of the Cyber Weekend.
In our AirPods Pro review, we praise their comfortable design and instant pairing with Apple devices. We also liked their clear sound and noise cancellation. We gave the AirPods Pro 4.5 out of 5-stars and our Editor's Choice award approval rating.
AirPods—wireless Bluetooth earbud—first launched in September 2016 and have since become Apple’s most popular accessory, with 14 to 16 million units sold each year. AirPods—which are estimated to be worth more than 60 percent of the companies the Fortune 500—also make up an estimated 5 to 7 percent of Apple’s revenue. Since the success of AirPods, Apple has since launched other versions of the wireless earbuds, like AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, which both offer noise cancellation technology.
And with an outward-facing microphone that detects external sounds, these earbuds counter it with “anti-noise’ before you even hear it. Plus, these wireless earbuds charge fast — we're talking two hours of battery power after just ten minutes charging in the case. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or a loved one, these wireless earbuds are worth considering.
But if you can’t be bothered, AirPods are now available on Amazon Canada for the first time (along with other Apple accessories), allowing you to take advantage of sweet, sweet Prime shipping speeds while you order from the porcelain throne (#nojudgment).
But as of this morning, you can pick up a pair from Woot for $180, an extra $10 off for a total discount of 28% compared to the Apple price. This offer is set to expire tonight at 12:59 a.m. ET or until sold out. If we learned anything over the holidays it's that these aren't likely to stay in stock for long, so grab yours while you can.

Oh, and Siri is built in too, and can be set up to read important notifications to you, so you don’t even have to lift a finger. It’s hard to argue with that level of convenience.
And though there are lots of deals on AirPods Pro across the internet for Black Friday, the best deal I’ve been able to find is at Walmart, where they’re just $159, down $90 from the original price and the cheapest we’ve ever seen. But don’t dillydally: We’ve already been seeing some stock issues at Walmart. (And if they do sell out there, they’re also on-sale at Amazon for $170.)
Meanwhile, the AirPods with Wireless Case hit an all-time price low of $129; however, after releasing the AirPods 3, Apple permanently dropped their price to $129. (We've yet to see them sell for less). The new AirPods 3 hit $149 in November, which is their best price ever.
There’s a solution for that special someone on your list always complaining their AirPods fall out. Earhooks are an easy silicone attachment designed to make them fit snugly in your ears. They come with two sizes to make sure there’s a perfect fit, and there are two sets included to ensure those expensive AirPods stay safe and sound at all times.
You can pick up the new 2021 MagSafe charging version for just $189.99 at Amazon (was $249), after the ANC buds spent the last week stuck back up at $197. While not as low a price as we previously saw on the standard model (which is generally out of stock now), this is the best we've seen for a set of Apple's latest luxury buds so far.
