AirPods Pro still at their lowest-ever price following Black Friday

If you've been looking forward to Apple Black Friday deals, the good news is that some of them remain even after the end of the shopping holiday. The Apple AirPods Pro 2 are still $49 off on Amazon, dropping them to a historic low of $200 from the typical price of $249. To take advantage of this rare opportunity, be sure to slam them in your cart now, as most Black Friday deals of the same caliber are beginning to disappear, and we're not sure if the wireless earbuds will be this cheap on the upcoming Cyber Monday deals. Or, scroll on down for a moment to look at why the Pros are so professional.

Why you should buy the Apple AirPods Pro
If you know about the AirPods 2, you probably don't need a lot of convincing to get them when they're on sale. However, if you're still new to the world of AirPods, here's our AirPods Pro 2 review in a nutshell: a total no-brainer for Apple users. While Android and PC users will still enjoy the advanced ANC and transparency modes, Apple users will enjoy the AirPods Pro 2's ability to instantly recognize other Apple products whenever the case is opened. For example, if you have an iPad (or plan on getting one via these Black Friday iPad deals), you just have to open up your AirPods Pro 2's near it when you want to use it, and everything will be ready for you automatically.
