Apple AirPods Pro deals

Apple may have just launched a new generation of AirPods Pro with improved noise cancellation and other nifty new features at its recent iPhone 14 event, but the first-gen model is still worth considering thanks to its frequent discounts. If you own an iPhone or multiple Apple products, the original AirPods Pro have been some of the best true wireless earbud options on the market since their release in 2019. Unlike the base AirPods, the Pros offer better sound quality and feature active noise cancellation, not to mention seamless integration with iOS and a MagSafe-compatible charging case.

While the AirPods Pro carry a lofty $249 price tag — the same the second-gen version now sells for — they go on sale with some regularity. During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, for instance, we saw them drop as low as $160. They’re no longer available at that price, but you can get a pair of first-gen Pros with a MagSafe charging case right now for $179.98 at Amazon and Walmart. Considering how often the Pros are on sale and since it’s possible the new model will fully replace them, you definitely do not want to spend more than that. It may even be advisable to wait for bigger discounts or consider the new model if you feel it’s worth ponying up for the improved noise cancellation and better volume controls — especially once it gets some sizable sales of its own.

The last-gen AirPods Pro improve upon the regular AirPods with better sound quality, excellent active noise cancellation, and immersive spatial audio.

Now, as for those second-gen AirPods Pro, they’re seeing a small discount of about $10 off at Amazon and Walmart. We may have to wait some time for significantly better deals.

If you opt for the second-gen Pros, you’re getting a similar-looking earbud to the 2019 model with most of the quality-of-life improvements on the inside. They have better noise cancellation, but it’s still not as good as Bose’s new QuietComfort Earbuds II. Though, with their tight integration into iOS and new case that can beep if you ever misplace it, the typical Apple niceties are here.

Apple’s latest AirPods Pro take after the last-gen model but include swipe controls and a new H2 chip that allows for improved noise cancellation. They also come with a water-resistant charging case that offers support for Apple’s robust Find My network.

Alternatively, you can buy a pair of entry-level second-generation AirPods with a wired charging case. The base AirPods normally retail for $129, but you can currently get them for $119 at Amazon, Walmart, and Target. That $10 discount is unfortunately not great, especially since we very briefly saw them drop to a new low of $79 just recently. They’re a little dated now, with sound quality that falls in the “okay” category, but they’re normally as cheap as you can get for Apple’s own line of wireless earbuds — complete with easy connectivity to iPhones, iPads, and Macs thanks to the built-in H1 chip. Ideally, you’d want to grab a set when they’re on sale for $99.99 or less.

The second-gen AirPods with an included wireless charging case are all but gone now, unless you’re shopping used or refurbished. Though, if you prefer that added convenience, it’s better to shop for a deal on the newer third-gen AirPods.

These AirPods are Apple’s second generation of true wireless earbuds and the cheapest model in the AirPods lineup.

Apple AirPods (third-gen) deals

Last on the AirPods block is the third-gen model, the latest iteration of base AirPods. These earbuds blend a bit of the AirPods Pro look with the hard plastic build of the second-gen model and come with a MagSafe-compatible wireless charging case. They also offer IPX4 water resistance, improved sound quality, and a slightly higher retail price of $179.

We’ve seen the third-gen AirPods on sale for as low as $140, with a very brief flash sale drop them to just $89 for Walmart Plus subscribers, but they are currently available for a small discount of $10 off at Walmart and Target. Not great, but maybe better deals aren’t far off from the horizon.


Similar in appearance to their sleeker sibling, the AirPods Pro, the latest entry-level AirPods boast a new charging case and shorter stems. They’re also water resistant, unlike the 2019 model, and sport better battery life.

Sony WF-1000XM4 deals

The Sony WF-1000XM4 are our top pick for the best earbuds you can buy, boasting the best noise cancellation of any true wireless earbuds. They offer phenomenal sound quality as well as an excellent battery and can even be charged wirelessly via the included charging case. Although we’ve seen them sell for as low as $218 during Amazon Prime Day, they’re available at Amazon, Target, and Best Buy right now for $248 to $249.99, around $30 off the MSRP of $279.99. It’s a modest discount, but they’re still an easy recommendation.

$27836% off

Sony’s WF-1000XM4 have some of the best noise cancellation of any true wireless earbuds, and the sound quality is second to none. The earbuds can also now be charged wirelessly and have a new design that’s smaller and rated IPX4.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro deals

Samsung has a few different wireless earbuds to choose from, and it launched a new premium pair, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, in August. The original Galaxy Buds Pro have a lower MSRP and a history of frequent deals, making them still a fine option if you’re an Android user or Samsung devotee who wants premium buds without paying quite the premium price. The original Galaxy Buds Pro include active noise cancellation and some very fine sound quality that Samsung has only now eclipsed with the new version.

At their lowest, the Galaxy Buds Pro have fallen to around $120, and perhaps now that the new Buds 2 Pro (sounds like a Fast & Furious film) are in the world and selling for a pricier $229.99, the discounts may hopefully continue getting better. Though, for now, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart all have the Galaxy Buds Pro for $149.99 ($50 off) in various colors.


Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro have a blend of tech found in the older Buds Plus and Buds Live, with excellent sound quality.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 deals

Samsung released the Galaxy Buds 2 — a good-sounding pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation, wireless charging, and a subtle design — in August 2021, and we’ve seen plenty of discounts from the start. Right now, the best price around is Amazon’s $123.42 (about $27 off) for the olive color. That’s not a bad price for Samsung’s entry-level buds, and these Galaxy Buds 2 do hit above their weight class with noise cancellation and good audio quality, though they are prone to steeper discounts, sometimes dropping as low as $99.99.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2

$15040% off

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 have a stylish, low-profile design, and the earbuds are incredibly comfortable to wear even for long amounts of time. The earbuds feature active noise cancellation, pleasing sound quality, and wireless charging.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live deals

The Galaxy Buds Live are some of the more unconventional wireless earbuds on the market, but don’t let their bean-shaped design fool you. The Buds Live are a good option if you want smaller earbuds that produce powerful sound and showcase marathon battery life. Right now, you can purchase a pair of the Galaxy Buds Live in all colors from Amazon, Best Buy, Target, or Walmart for $99.99 ($60 off). That’s $10 away from the cheapest price we’ve seen in the past, which was usually only a flash sale or lightning deal.

Jabra Elite 7 Active deals

Some of the things that make Jabra earbuds enticing are the value on offer and the excellent multipoint Bluetooth support. The latest midtier wireless earbuds from Jabra, the Elite 7 Active, are no exception. These are fitness-focused alternatives to the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, and they feature multipoint compatibility for connecting to two devices simultaneously.

Normally going for $179.99, the Jabra Elite 7 Active are available for $149.99 ($30 off) at Amazon in black. They’re a great option if you work out a lot and find the multidevice pairing especially handy.

Jabra Elite 7 Active

$18017% off

Nearly indistinguishable from the Elite 7 Pro in appearance, the Elite 7 Active make the Pro model more workout-friendly with a rubberized coating that gives them IPX7 water resistance and prevents them from falling out during a workout.

Amazon Echo Buds (second-gen) deals

Like their first-gen predecessor, the 2021 edition of the Amazon Echo Buds are a great value. Amazon’s latest true wireless earbuds offer improved comfort and better noise cancellation, along with a terrific passthrough mode that ensures you can always hear what’s going on around you. The $119.99 earbuds also feature hands-free Alexa support and sound that’s remarkably satisfying, with more bass than the AirPods Pro and an appropriate amount of restraint when it comes to the high end.

The second-gen Amazon Echo Buds are often discounted at most retailers, in both configurations with a wired or wireless charging case. Right now, for instance, the latest Echo Buds are on sale at Amazon and Best Buy with the wired charging case for $69.99 ($50 off), which is just $10 away from their lowest price. The same Echo Buds with a wireless charging case is $89.99 (also $50 off) at Amazon and Best Buy. We should note, however, that Amazon offers an additional 25 percent credit when you trade in select devices towards either configuration.


Amazon’s second-gen Echo Buds improve upon the originals with a more comfortable design, improved ANC, and a more natural ambient sound mode. They support hands-free Alexa commands as well.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 deals

Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 are another pair of excellent noise-canceling earbuds that are currently on sale. As noted in our review, the earbuds offer great ANC performance, customizable controls, and sound that can nearly match that of a premium pair of noise-canceling over-ear headphones. This does come at a fairly steep regular price of $299.95, and, now, there’s a newer model that delivers more features for $249.95. So it’s possible we’ll see the Momentum True Wireless 2 get phased out soon.

In the meantime, the Momentum True Wireless 2 are still available and selling for a much lower $199.98 (about $100 off) in white at Amazon and $149.98 (about $150 off) at Best Buy — though, the latter may rely on it being in-stock at a Best Buy store in your area. That $149.98 is the lowest price for these earbuds from the premium audio company.


Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds offer sublime sound quality and satisfactory noise cancellation.

Beats Powerbeats Pro deals

If you’re in the market for a reliable pair of wireless earbuds for your workouts, it’s hard to go wrong with the predecessor to the Studio Buds, the Beats Powerbeats Pro. These earbuds from 2019 sport an over-ear hook that keeps them in place while you’re exercising; they also offer IPX4 sweat- and water-resistant, meaning you don’t have to worry about ruining them should your workout get intense.

Typically $249.95, the Beats Powerbeats Pro are on sale in select colors at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and the official Beats storefront, all of which are selling them in several colors for about $199.99. We’ve seen them sell for much cheaper before — they were on sale for around $150 throughout November and December 2021 — but this is the consistent discount you’ll find on what would otherwise be a $250 pair of earbuds.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

$25020% off

The Beats Powerbeats Pro provide up to nine hours of battery life, with 24 hours provided by the case. They’re IPX4 sweat- and water resistant, too, and feature Apple’s H1 chip for easy pairing and hands-free Siri commands.

UE Fits deals

After testing a pair for ourselves, we remarked in our review that the UE Fits were the most comfortable consumer earbuds on the market. That’s because, unlike the other wireless earbuds on this list, the UE Fits are uniquely capable of permanently molding to the shape of your ears in just 60 seconds, making them a great choice for those concerned their earbuds may come loose or fall out. We also found that they offer good sound quality, as well as lengthy, eight-hour battery life. Normally $199, you can get them right now for $179 direct from Ultimate Ears in gray, lilac, midnight blue, or in the limited edition hot pink for $10 more at $189.

UE Fits

$19910% off

The UE Fits come with ear tips that permanently mold to the unique shape of your ears in just 60 seconds. This allows for a much better fit that you can comfortably wear for hours.
