If you’ve been waiting for a sale on the Apple AirPods Pro, get ready. Right now, they’re $197 at Amazon — that’s $52 off. Apple rarely discounts these top-rated buds, so it’s a great time to buy. You'll be in good company: They’re so popular that they’ve earned a flawless five-star rating from more than 157,000 reviewers.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
How do the AirPods Pro compare to previous models?
For one, they’re customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. Whereas the regular AirPods subscribe to a one-size-fits-all approach, Apple provides a special 'Ear Tip Fit Test' so you can learn which size is best for you and your unique ear shape.
Apple also redesigned these buds with a silicone tip for a comfy fit so they’ll feel better in your ear — and won’t slip out halfway through a workout.
Unlike previous versions of the iconic buds, Apple AirPods Pro also feature active noise-canceling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter. "The sound quality is great, the noise-canceling is good as well," wrote a five-star reviewer. "They also pair and turn on automatically when you open the case."
Said another satisfied Amazon shopper, "For noise cancellation, they’re more effective than I thought they would be. They are best at blocking out white noise—bus engines, office sounds, fans, etc. They are good at voices if it's just people talking in a group at a normal volume."
Ease of use for Apple fans
The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any other Apple device — including iPhone, iPad, MacBook Air, iMac and more.
In addition, these true wireless earbuds pair with Android smartphones or tablets and Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.
The Apple AirPods Pro have a longer battery life on a single charge too — 5.5 hours compared to the previous model’s 3.5 hours. And you can drop them in their included wireless charging case to juice them up for an additional 24 hours of power.
"Battery life is excellent. I haven't charged them more than once in the last month with using them once every few nights for an hour or so," added another Amazon shopper.
At $197 (was $249), the Apple AirPods Pro are a big step up in audio quality. And with the bells and whistles that the entry-level AirPods just don’t have, we think they’re well worth the upgrade.
