Hurry! AirPods Pro still on sale for $220 — but not for much longer

Verizon is a creature of habit. The carrier-cum-retailer has discounted the AirPods Pro several times over the course of the last few months, but not for long — a week or two at a time. With this in mind, it’s safe to say the clock is ticking if you want to take home Apple’s flagship noise-canceling true wireless earbuds on the cheap. Verizon still has them for $220, down $30 from the usual $50. Miss out now and, considering AirPods deals are few and far between, it’s unlikely we’ll see them on offer again until Labor Day, and that’s not until September 7. Best act fast then.

So, what’s the difference between the AirPods Pro and the run-of-the-mill AirPods with Wireless Charging Case? For starters, they’re a lot smaller and shorter. They’re also sweat-resistant, making them the ideal companion for a long workout, and are armed with Active Noise Canceling (ANC). Plus, they come with interchangeable silicone ear tips that A) ensure they stay in your ears while you’re working out; B) make them more comfortable to wear for extended durations, and C) create a seal for ANC to work its magic.

The changes don’t end there, though. Apple made a number of changes under the hood to improve the all-important sound quality as well, headlined by the addition of Adaptive EQ — a software tweak that tunes the low- and mid-frequencies of the music to the shape of the listener’s ear. It’s all of this combined, not to mention the fact they last for up to 4.5 hours on a single charge with noise-canceling enabled, that makes the AirPods Pro the most advanced AirPods the company has released to date.

Not sold? Here’s what one customer had to say about their AirPods Pro:

They fit perfectly and work extremely well with the iPhone. I rarely have to charge them and the bluetooth rarely gives me any issues. The sound cancellation was great when I used them while cutting the grass.

When it comes to tracking devices, one of the most noteworthy products you can buy are Apple AirTags. About as small as a watch battery, these Apple GPS beacons can go just about anywhere. And as we were going through some of the best Amazon deals of the week, we came across a promo you don’t want to miss: 

For a limited time, you’ll be able to purchase a four-pack of Apple AirTags for only $79. Not only will you save yourself $21, but you’ll introduce a ton of peace-of-mind to your life. After all, everyone loses things, so it’s nice to leave some of the “tracking down” part to consumer tech.

AirPods Pro and Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro are both on sale
Apple AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C and MagSafe review

The world has become loud, sometimes too much so, and having a solid pair of earbuds can make a big difference. Of course, the higher-end options with noise canceling tend to be prohibitively expensive, especially if you're an Apple user. Luckily, Walmart has an excellent sale that will let you grab a pair of solid noise-canceling headphones for a pretty good price, regardless of whether you're an Android or iOS user. We've collected both deals below for you to check out, although there's a lot more to say for each pair of earbuds, so be sure to check the full review when making your decision to buy.
SAMSUNG Galaxy Buds 2 Pro -- $106, was $230

Samsung's second iteration of these headphones has been both great and not-so-great, making the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro an excellent pair of earbuds to buy, but mostly when they are on sale. For the most part, they have everything you could want from a solid pair of headphones, and they actually have one of the best fits on the market. As such, they're really good for exercise and going out and about, and the IPX7 resistance means that they can handle the environment just fine. That said, the 360 audio and head tracking features are not that great and pale compared to the higher-end Apple earbuds. Even so, they're pretty excellent for the price, especially when discounted, so they're well worth picking up.

That's why we've gone out and searched through various big retailers to find you some of the best deals we can find. That includes everything from the MacBook deals, AirPods deals, Apple TV deals and Apple Watch deals to the AirTag, so hopefully, you can find the perfect deal that fits your needs and budget.
