Question: When’s the best time to grab a pair of Apple AirPods?
Answer: Right now!
Amazon just marked down all four models of the Apple AirPods — including the brand new AirPods Max. So treat yourself to a pair and enhance those workouts, neighborhood runs and work-from-home days. These guys are among the best of the best, so if you haven’t made the jump to wireless audio, now’s your moment — especially if you use an Apple iPhone, iPad or MacBook.
AirPods seamlessly pair with all of them and easily sync with iMac desktops too. You don’t have to do a thing. Thanks in part to a special type of chip (H1), your AirPods link to your device as soon as you open up their charging case. That’s what sets these buds apart. Well, that, along with superior audio and a sleek design.
And Amazon will give you free shipping too. But if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get so much more — from access to new movies and TV shows, discounts at Whole Foods, exclusive sales and two-day shipping on many, many items. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here.

With the phenomenal sound you’d expect from Apple, we present the best bargain on the AirPod menu: The standard Apple AirPods with charging case — now just $119. While the buds themselves are wireless, you need to plug in the case to charge them.
Once juiced up, they instantly pair with your iPhone. No scrolling, no fiddling with settings. You’re good to go. And you can expect a robust five hours of battery life per charge. These are the most popular Pods of the bunch, earning a five-star rating from nearly 359,000 reviewers.
"This is my first pair of AirPods. I love them. They are life-changing! The AirPods arrived less than 24-hours after ordering. They were packaged in a sleek, white Apple AirPods box," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. “...I wholeheartedly give these AirPods five shiny gold stars."

Want a little something extra — and very convenient — with your AirPods? Well, this model comes with a wireless charging case. How does it work? Simply place the case on just about any Qi-wireless charging pad or stand (no plug or wire required) and let it power up.
These buds will have the same long (five-hour) battery life as the no-frills AirPods, but if you happen to run out of juice while away from home, you can just pop these babies back into the charging case for 15 minutes, and boom — three more hours of battery life! Here's another delightful innovation: The Apple AirPods with wireless charging case are now nearly $49 off.
"What is there not to love? Great sound, sleek design and an amazing wireless charger that keeps you going throughout the day," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "I'm over the moon with the seamless integration between all my Apple devices including my Apple Watch...Get ready to rediscover your music collection all over again."

Customizable and noise-canceling: the Apple AirPods Pro are what we call a sound investment. (Photo: Amazon)
At the top of the wireless earbud food chain are the Apple AirPods Pro. With incredible noise-canceling capabilities, they have silicone ear tips for a more secure fit. And right now they’re $59 off.
Yes, they cost more than the models above, but they’re pro-level buds. And they’re so solid, they’ve earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 191,600 Amazon shoppers.
Said a savvy Amazon shopper, "For noise cancellation, they’re more effective than I thought they would be. They are best at blocking out white noise — bus engines, office sounds, fans, etc. They are good at voices if it's just people talking in a group at a normal volume."
Save $70: Apple AirPods Max

Do you prefer your personal audio on-ear rather than in-ear? Well, you're in luck: Even the granddaddy of AirPods are on sale! That's right! The sleek Apple AirPods Max are on sale for $479, a cool $70 off, at Amazon. This is the first time they've been discounted since being released at the end of last year.
The Apple AirPods Max over-the-ear headphones are noise-canceling and deliver top-tier wireless audio. Amazon shoppers can't get enough. "If you reside in the Apple universe, these headphones are absolutely worth it," raved a five-star reviewer. "The sound is fantastic across all genres of music. They project a wide soundstage and just the right amount of bass. I can listen to these for hours with great comfort and without my ears becoming sweaty."
