Don’t miss these Memorial Day sales on the AirPods Pro and Powerbeats Pro

If you don’t want the discomfort of over-ear headphones or the hassle and restriction of wires getting in the way of your calls, multimedia consumption, or workout, we recommend you stick to true wireless earbuds. We’ve listed here two premium models – the Apple AirPods Pro and the Powerbeats Pro – both of which are discounted as part of Best Buy and Verizon’s Memorial Day sales. Score up to $50 off when you order today.

Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats Pro – $200, was $250

Jam out to your favorite playlist while exercising with the Powerbeats Pro. This model is specially designed to revolutionize your workouts, with zero cables to hold you back during intense movements. The ear hooks can be adjusted for a secure, personalized fit and can be customized with different ear tip options, so no matter how hard you go, they won’t fall off and will remain comfortable. The earbuds’ reinforced design comes with an IPX4 rating which means they are protected against sweat and splashes.

The Powerbeats Pro pack the Apple H1 headphone chip inside for Siri activation as well as Class 1 Bluetooth technology for extended range and fewer dropouts. Each earbud pairs with your device independently for better connectivity and freedom of use – left, right, or both, you have the ultimate control over your audio. Optical sensors and motion accelerometers are also in place, which work together to detect when the earbuds are in your ears.

For sound performance, the Powerbeats Pro were designed to match even the toughest workouts. Pure sound reproduction is guaranteed, complete with enhanced clarity and dynamic range, punchier bass, as well as impressive instrumental separation. Vocal clarity during calls is also assured, thanks to the speech-detecting accelerometer and multiple microphones that target your voice and filter out external noise. Full volume and track controls are built into the buds as well so there’s no need to adjust settings through the connected device.

Whether you want to play both sides or just one at a time, the Powerbeats Pro let you do so. Each bud delivers up to 9 hours of listening time so you can keep your music going all day. A charging case is included as well which gives you up to 24 hours of combined playback time. When low on juice, you may take advantage of their Fast Fuel feature that provides an extra 1.5 hours of battery after a quick five-minute charge.

Pick up a pair of the Beats by Dre. Powerbeats Pro on Best Buy for only $200 instead of the usual $250. All color variants are discounted for Memorial Day.


Apple AirPods Pro – $220, was $250

The AirPods Pro model is the latest to join Apple’s family of true wireless earbuds. They come with all the best features of the original AirPods plus a variety of upgrades, making them a real champ that knocks down the previous generations in all respects. The California-based tech giant outfitted them with the same golf-tee design although it’s a bit shorter now. Another noticeable design change is the addition of a silicone tip in each earbud. Three sizes of soft, flexible silicone ear tips are included so you can customize the fit for secure and comfortable wear as well as completely seal the ear canal for better bass response, noise blockage, and sound delivery.

When it comes to audio quality, the AirPods Pro are actually in the same league with the highly rated Sony WF-1000XM3 and Sennheiser Momentum. Whether you’re listening to podcasts or music, you can expect them to come along with fine details as well as a tuneful and punchy bass response. Their noise-canceling performance is equally impressive. The earbuds do a fine job of blocking unwanted background noise, giving out an effect similar to the noise cancellation of the Sony WH-100XM3 and Bose QuietComfort 35 II. If you prefer to remain aware of what’s happening around you and let the ambient noise in, you can easily do by activating the Transparency mode.

The AirPods Pro boast the same convenience of Siri, intuitive touch controls, and accelerometers that Apple fans have to come to rely on with the previous models. Battery life is also unchanged, offering up to five hours of music streaming on a single charge. The included charging case is compatible with Qi-certified charging mats and carries an impressive amount of backup battery power at more than 24 hours.

iOS users on the hunt for the best true wireless earbuds don’t need to look any further than the AirPods Pro. As part of the Memorial Day sales, Verizon is offering this model for $30 off. Order a pair now for only $220 and enjoy immersive sound during your calls, multimedia consumption, and workout jamming.

The Microsoft Surface Pro 7+ in laptop form, on a desk.

With so many great deals on Memorial Day, it's the perfect time to pick up a Microsoft Surface Pro laptop. Not only is it great for general business and school use for productivity, but it's also powerful enough that folks have used it for editing work like music production. As such, it's no surprise that we've put it on both our best tablet deals and best laptop deals lists for its versatility and powerful specifications under the hood. Even slightly older versions, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro 7+, are still relatively powerful, and you can get quite a good deal on them since they're not newly released.
