Cyber Monday may be over, but the last-minute Cyber Monday deals live on … like this offer on the AirPods 2, which sees them down from $159 to $129 at Staples. If you’ve been thinking about downsizing the cables and wires in your life in favor of the Bluetooth wireless lifestyle, now’s the time to pull the trigger. There’s no guarantee that this deal will last through the end of the day.

The 2nd-gen AirPods are the newest iteration of Apple’s standard Bluetooth earbuds. They fully integrate with an iPad, iPhone, or Apple Watch, replacing all the typical menus with a simple “Hey Siri.” They’re a must-have if you’re an Apple addict, or if you just want to be confident that you’re buying a great set of earbuds, then never think about them again. Apple even simplified the charging process. This deal includes a charging case. Just pop your AirPods into the case for 15 minutes and you’ve got another three hours of battery life available — wherever you are. All together that charging case will give you more than 24 hours of listening time, more than enough to get you through the day.

This version of the earbuds gives you some ambient noise-canceling, but not the active canceling you’d get from the AirPods Pro. It’s worth noting that those are on sale today as well, along with a ton of other Cyber Monday Apple deals. The AirPods 2 are still a magnificent earbud (with a slimmer price tag than the Pros). Great sound quality, long battery life, sleek design — they’re a great option for runners, constant phone-callers, and dedicated podcast listeners.

It’s time to take advantage of last-minute Cyber Monday AirPod deals — before the retailers realize how much money they’re giving away. AirPods at $129 is a steal that could only happen this time of year. If you’ve been considering upgrading, it’s time to go for it.
