Apple AirPods Pro back down to $220 at Verizon — but not for long

There’s a great deal on the horizon from Verizon. The communications giant has brought back one of its best deals, offering the AirPods Pro for one of the lowest prices we’ve seen them, $220. That’s $30 off, down from $250, for some of the best, most subtle, coolest true wireless earbuds available and with Apple’s legendary design and sound.

Apple really went for it when it stepped up from its AirPods to AirPods Pro. The most noticeable difference is the active noise cancellation. When you’re wearing your AirPods Pro and the noise cancellation is activated, you can feel like you’re the only person on the planet. It blocks out all surrounding noise, especially wind, which was a No. 1 suspect for call interference with the AirPods. At the same time, Apple has included a transparency mode, so that you can mediate the noise cancellation feature and allow your preferred level of important outside chatter — be it meetings, conversations with friends, kids — into your listening zone.

Another huge difference is the interchangeable silicone ear tips that mold the earphones, and their output, directly into your ear’s canal for the best aural experience. They’re also equipped with Adaptive EQ, meaning that your podcasts, music, and dialogue will be customized automatically, corresponding to the shape of your ear. AirPods Pro are shorter and more subtle than the standard AirPods and Apple constructed each bud with three microphones, with one of them designed specifically to pick up your voice so that they’re amazing on calls. Additionally, there’s now a vent system that helps release the annoying pressure that can build up in your ear from the noise-canceling features.

But how long do they last on a single charge? That’s often the question with all wireless devices, not just headphones. The answer is very positive: Apple has upped the battery life to an impressive five hours, backed up with the portable charging case which only requires juice once a day (it lasts up to 24 hours). And of course, there’s support for Siri and built-in voice control for all your music and calls and volume.

While competitors like Bose might offer longer battery life, there’s no better sound, or look, than Apple’s AirPods, and they don’t get much better than the AirPods Pro. Compare this offer with our other AirPods deals, but this is impressive, at $30 off, you’re only paying $220 for brand new AirPods Pro, down from $250, at Verizon.

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.

Apple is one of the biggest companies in the world, and if you're looking for some great tech, then you probably already know that Apple makes some of the best wireless earbuds, the best smartwatches, the best laptops, and even the best tablets. That said, it does also garner a very premium price tag, which is a pretty big part of the brand itself, meaning that for a lot of folks in the Apple ecosystem, making any sort of upgrade or expansion to that ecosystem can be very costly. On the bright side, there are a ton of great Apple deals out there in the world, whether it's trade-in value from Apple, or direct discounts from Amazon and Best Buy, you have options.

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.
