Now on sale for $20 off the usual price, the Apple AirPods with Charging Case are an ideal budget purchase if you’re keen to try out Apple’s wireless earphones. They’re super simple to use, taking seconds to set up and do anything with. A simple double-tap plays your music, while you can always yell ‘Hey Siri’ to get started. They sound good, too, and promise a comfy fit in your ear. You might miss out on wireless charging but these are easily charged up via a Lightning connector so that’s no great loss, and ideal for those counting their pennies.

Got a little more money to play around with? These Apple AirPods come with a Wireless Charging Case that can be simply placed on a Qi-compatible charging mat or charged via the Lightning connector. 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.

Why you should buy the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro
Our Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro review recognized that these earbuds would be hard to beat at their (not even on sale) price. Why? Because the earbuds — dubbed "affordably awesome" — had considerably above-par sound quality and active noise canceling (ANC) than their peers. Additionally, though it is a bit subjective, we found them to be very comfortable. As a result of the wide selection of ear tip sizes included, we're willing to bet on you having a similar experience.

Prime Day 2022 Airpods deals graphic.

Amazon's aptly-named Prime Early Access Sale is happening now, but it's the last day. It ends tonight! Like the original two-day Prime event in July, we've seen tons of savings on tech, toys, goodies, and more. Of course, you'll have to be an active Amazon Prime member to participate, but the good news is that you can sign-up for a 30-day trial, if you haven't already done so recently. If you're on the hunt for the best Prime Day AirPod Deals, or Apple Prime Day deals, you're in luck, since we're starting to see a lot of offers already. Don't forget, Amazon isn't the only place to shop during these deal extravaganzas! Walmart's October Rollbacks sale is essentially a Walmart Prime Day sale, with lots of enticing discounts.

As for Prime Early Access, it means that you have another chance to pick up both Prime Day AirPod deals and Prime Day deals in general, which is good, considering the latest versions of AirPods tend to be expensive. For example, a new pair of AirPods Max can easily set you back nearly $500 at retail price, so grabbing them on sale is likely what most folks are planning to do. Either way, you'll get a chance at some early holiday shopping Apple AirPods deals, and we've gone ahead and put together a list of the best Prime Day Apple AirPods deals to shop today. Check those out below.
