The Apple Airpods you always wanted are on sale at Staples — it’s time to buy!

If you’ve been wanting to join the AirPod club and take your music with you wirelessly and effortlessly, now’s your chance to grab a pair of Apple AirPods 2 at a discount. Staples has cut the price of these popular 2nd generation earbuds by $30, dropping your total from $159 to just $129 with free shipping. We’ve seen $20 and $30 discounts around major holidays before, but we have yet to see a deeper discount than that. This is likely the lowest price you’re going to get on the Apple AirPods, so you should act now if you want a pair.

Connecting to Bluetooth is an extra step required by most wireless earbuds, but the Apple AirPods are always on and always connected. Take them out of the charging case, put them in your ears, and you’re ready to start listening to your favorite tunes. The music will pause automatically when you take them out of your ears. A simple double-tap plays or skips songs, and you can also control your AirPods handsfree with Siri. Turn up the music, call a friend, or even ask for directions by saying “Hey, Siri.” You’ll get up to 5 hours of listening time in a single charge, and that’s not all. The included charging case holds multiple charges for up to 24 hours of listening time, so these earbuds are ready to go with you anywhere.

And what about the sound quality? The Apple AirPods 2 deliver rich audio that competes with rival earbuds in a similar price range, but they don’t sound as good as higher-end true wireless earbuds. Check out the details in our Apple AirPods 2 review, and browse other options in our other AirPod deals. If you’re interested in other brands, you can see what’s available in the best true wireless earbuds for 2021. But unless you’re an audiophile, the Apple AirPods 2 won’t disappoint. More than 800 customers gave the AirPods an average rating of about 4.7/5 stars. Many reviewers mention the great sound quality.

If you’ve determined the Apple AirPods are the right choice for you (our expert reviewer called them the “no-fuss option for Apple fans”), you should act fast. There’s no telling how long this deal will last, and we have yet to see a deeper discount on these earbuds. Originally listed at $159, the Apple AirPods 2 now go for $129 at Staples, saving you $30.
