Apple’s AirPods Pro 2 have only been on shelves for a few weeks now, but they’ve already gotten a solid discount as part of Amazon’s big Prime Early Access Sale.
The second-generation AirPods Pro are currently $223.24 on Amazon, which is their lowest price yet and about $26 off of the earbuds’ full retail price (the buds were $234.99 at the start of Prime Day, and have dipped even further since). It’s not the first discount we’ve seen on the latest AirPods, which have been holding steady at $239 on Amazon pretty much since release. But if you’ve been eyeing the AirPods Pro 2 since they hit stores in late September, now’s your best time to pull the trigger — especially when that extra cash can go toward a case or lanyard to keep your new buds extra safe.
The best Apple earbuds
The AirPods Pro 2 deliver superb noise cancellation and sound quality, and they just hit their lowest price yet.
If you do plan on jumping on the AirPods Pro 2 bandwagon, you’ll be treated to some of the best wireless earbuds that we’ve ever tested. Apple’s latest high-end earbuds deliver significantly better noise cancellation than the previous model as well as improved sound, useful on-ear volume controls and an upgraded case that’s a lot harder to lose, thanks to a built-in lanyard loop and Find My capabilities. They’re not necessarily a must-have for existing AirPods Pro owners (the design and features are mostly unchanged), but they’re the best Apple earbuds out there for folks just jumping in.
The newest AirPods Pro are in high demand right now, so we wouldn’t wait too long if you plan on taking advantage of this deal. And if the new Pros are out of your budget, the more basic second-generation AirPods are deeply discounted at just $89.99 (down from $159) right now.
