headphone buying guide earbuds apple airpods

Apple is one of the most well-known and popular brands in the tech industry. With high-quality products like the iPad, iPhone, and Apple Watch at the top of everyone’s wish list, it’s not all that hard to see why they are so popular. Apple has revolutionized smartphones, tablets, and smartwatches with its sleek, user-friendly style that people can’t get enough of. So when it comes to wireless earbuds, Apple has made no exception. The AirPods are one of the best fully wireless earbuds money can buy — although merely a decent upgrade from the original model — and the new version with hands-free Siri and optional wireless charging continues that tradition.

From Apple to Walmart, here are the best places to buy AirPods.

There’s a chance you’ve never heard of B&H, but when it comes to Apple products, it has some of the most affordable prices we’ve found. For now, the company lists the AirPods as sold out, but we expect they’ll be available in the coming weeks once Apple makes a supply of the new AirPods available. One that happens, if you live on certain parts of the East Coast, you’ll get free one-day expedited shipping. You can check the map above to see how long it would take to get your headphones after you order. We’ll update this listing once they’re in-stock.

Walmart Black Friday

Walmart shows the original AirPods in stock, but only from third-party sellers, and only at a premium price. At $205, we think you should steer clear, unless you have no other options.
