What’s with all of our favorite Black Friday deals resurfacing lately? First, it was the Sonos Era, as we highlighted yesterday. Now, both the AirPods Pro and the Apple-owned Beats Studio Pro are just $10 shy of their Black Friday all-time low price. Right now, you can buy the second-generation AirPods Pro with USB-C support for $199.99 ($50 off) at Amazon and Best Buy, while the Beats Studio Pro are around $179.95 ($170 off) at Amazon and Best Buy.

In case you need a refresher, the latest version of Apple’s AirPods Pro features a new MagSafe case that charges via USB-C instead of a Lightning port along with dust resistance. Otherwise, the earbuds aren’t too different from the original second-gen AirPods Pro, delivering stellar sound and noise cancellation as well as perks like onboard volume controls.

The second-gen AirPods Pro improve upon the original with better noise cancellation, enhanced sound quality, and onboard volume controls. The latest refresh also ships with a USB-C charging case, as opposed to Lightning. Read our review.

If you prefer over-ears, though, the noise-canceling Beats Studio Pro headphones are also on sale. Compared to AirPods Pro, these headphones offer more flexible support for both iOS and Android phones and lossless audio over USB-C. They also tune out noise much better than their predecessor while featuring a great new transparency mode, even if it’s not quite on the same level as the AirPods Max.

Beats Studio Pro

$35049% off

The new Beats Studio Pro feature improved noise cancellation, sound quality, and comfort. They also support lossless audio over USB-C, making them the first Apple headphones to do so.

If you’re hunting for a good gift, right now you can buy a Philips Hue starter kit containing three color-changing A19 bulbs with 800 lumens of brightness for $139.99 ($30 off) from Best Buy. That’s admittedly a $10 increase from its $129.99 all-time low but still a noteworthy deal as Best Buy is now throwing in a $30 gift card. As a result, you can buy the kit — which includes a Philips Hue Bridge and a Hue Dimmer Switch — while potentially saving on a gift for someone else on your list.

The Bluetooth-enabled smart bulbs make for popular holiday gifts as they make it fun and easy to control and schedule your lights via your voice or smartphone app. They’re also compatible with a broad range of major smart home platforms, while you can set up automations and control up to 50 lights with the included Philips Hue Bridge.


The Philips Hue Starter Kit includes a Hue Bridge, a Hue Dimmer Switch, and three color-changing A19 bulbs compatible with a range of platforms, including Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, Apple Home, and more.

A few more deals we’re digging

  • Woot is selling one leather AirTag Loop in yellow for $12.99 ($26 off), and you can buy two of them for $19.99 ($58 off). The discontinued leather accessories are far more durable than Apple’s terrible FineWoven fabric and allow you to attach your Apple AirTag to items like keys and suitcases.
  • Amazon’s Smart Air Quality Monitor is down to $52.99 ($17 off) at Amazon. Along with announcing air quality alerts via compatible Echo devices, the monitor triggers Alexa Routines that automatically turn on smart air purifiers or thermostats when there’s a drop in air quality, temperature, or humidity.
