That’s why we’ve already compiled this up-to-date roundup of the best Presidents Day AirPods deals so you can get shopping right away.
Best Presidents Day AirPods sales 2021
Should you buy AirPods on Presidents Day?
Presidents Day is one of few holidays in the first three months of the year to bring major sales with it. That’s to say that we don’t expect to see deals like the ones you’ll find among these Presidents Day AirPods sales again until April at the earliest; you may get lucky, but in general, we don’t recommend waiting if you see a bargain that sings to you. These seasonal sales are always the best times of the year to find hot tech at the lowest prices. That’s doubly true for Apple products, which are always in high demand. The easiest and quickest way to make sure you’re getting the best deal is with our roundup, which we’ll keep updated with the best Presidents Day AirPods deals available today.
How to choose AirPods on Presidents Day
Apple pretty much started the true wireless earbud revolution, and if you’re shopping for a pair during these Presidents Day sales, the AirPods are still among the best. You now have two models to choose from, though: the AirPods and AirPods Pro. The standard Apple AirPods are the ones most people know and Apple fans still love, while the AirPods Pro offer a more premium option that boast some additional features like an IPX4 water resistance rating (making them safe enough for workouts and sweat-inducing outdoor activities), improved sound and call quality, and active noise cancellation.
The standard AirPods are priced at $160 ($200 with the wireless charging case) while the AirPods Pro would normally set you back around $250, but of course, these Presidents Day AirPods sales are your best chance right now to score a pair for less. Even with these deals, though, the Pro model is naturally going to be more expensive than the basic AirPods, and only you can decide if those extra features are worth the premium. It’s worth noting that our review team did find the AirPods Pro earbuds to be a bit more comfortable during extended use — definitely something to consider if you’re the type to leave your earbuds in for hours at a time.
Apple recently shook things up a bit (as the company is often fond of doing) with the release of the new AirPods Max, a premium pair of wireless over-ear headphones that are clearly built to rival the offerings of other high-end headphone makers like Bose and Sennheiser. The AirPods Max headphones are, in a word, superb, combining Apple’s excellent build quality and sleek design with premium audio and industry-leading active noise cancellation technology.
There’s no denying that the Apple AirPods Max are expensive cans aimed at audiophiles — they retail for $550 — and, since they just hit the market, Presidents Day AirPods deals are likely to be scarce on these headphones right now. That said, you shouldn’t write them off completely if you find yourself lusting after a pair. Today’s Presidents Day AirPods sales might surprise us with the first chance to score a worthy discount on these things, and the priciest items always have the most savings potential during these seasonal blowouts.
