It’s a far more convenient solution than using a cable and right now, you can enjoy the convenience for only $170, down from $200. Effectively, you’re paying $30 for the charging case but it’s amazing how quickly you get used to wireless charging and begin wondering how you lived without it. Much like the other AirPods, they’re super simple to use and they look good, too. Expect great sound quality as before.
