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.

They also offer adaptive EQ so the music is automatically tuned to the shape of your ear ensuring a superior listening experience to other AirPods. If your budget can stretch this far, they’re the ultimate earphones from Apple.</p> <p style="text-align: center;">[cc-link url="" merchant="5b9be81f89f4b3242158adcd" type="button"]

Prime Day 2023 officially has a date at last. Set to start July 11 and run through July 12, there's not long to wait until big savings across the board. So, what do you do if you need or want new AirPods? Should you dip into the wealth of AirPods deals going on or are you better off waiting to see what Prime Day AirPods deals are going on? If you can't decide and don't know what to do, we're here to help answer that quandary.

Simply put, if you can wait, you should. There's simply no harm in waiting until Prime Day to see what headphone deals are around at the time. A lot of items will be cheaper during Prime Day and it's incredibly unlikely that anything will be more expensive than they are now.

Apple AirPods (2nd generation) -- $99, was $159

The Apple AirPods (2nd generation) may not be the newest earphones around anymore but they're still worth checking out at this price.

In conjunction with the Lightning charging case, you get more than 24 hours of total listening time with about five hours via one charge. They take seconds to pair up too before providing you (or your mom), a stable and strong connection courtesy of Apple's H1 chip. Using Siri through these earphones is speedy too.

Apple AirPods 2 -- $79, was $159

Starting off our Cyber Monday deals, we have a somewhat older version of the standard AirPods, the AirPods 2. Yet, the older model is still quite capable of doing most of the wonderful things we expect from any pair of AirPods of any generation. They still have over 24 hours of battery life when you include the charging case, still remain easy "open case" setup, and work better with your existing Apple products than other earbuds. Our AirPods 2 review highlights just how great the newly introduced H1 chip was for the AirPods 2, allowing voice-activated "Hey Siri" and calling in environments with ambient noise. While they're half off as part of Cyber Monday AirPods deals, be sure to give them a try!
