Not a joke: Apple AirPods Pro are nearly $70 off at Amazon — grab them while they're on sale

Updated ·4-min read

We're well into summer and all the lovely outdoor time that comes with it, which means whether you're spending these balmy days lazing on a blanket by the seaside, chilling on your porch or finally getting your jogging regimen in gear, it's high time for you to finally grab those Apple AirPods Pro you've been eyeing. Another reason to make that move right now: They're down to $180— nearly $70 off — at Amazon.

Active Noise Cancellation allows you to fully immerse yourself in music, podcasts or whatever makes you happy. Get up to 24 hours of listening with one charge. Plus, this model is waterproof and sweat-resistant.

How do AirPods Pro compare to previous models?

Good question. For one, they’re customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. Whereas previous AirPod iterations subscribed to a one-size-fits-all approach, these state-of-the-art Pros provide 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, the AirPods Pro feature active noise cancelling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter. "The sound quality is great, the noise cancelling 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."

"AirPods have never been better. These little things pack...a punch!" wrote one happy Amazon customer. "The audio quality is insane."

A fellow fan raved about all the features you get with these earbuds. "These are by far the best of anything I've used so far because the size and also the feature set," they wrote. "What boggles my mind and blows my mind is the spatial feature. I started looking around after starting to listen to an audiobook with that feature on. It's like the narrator is behind and all around. Spooky.... This is a quantum leap over other products."

Ease of use for Apple lovers

The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any Apple device — including the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac and more.

But these buds' utility extends way beyond the Appleverse: They'll also pair with Android smartphones or tablets and Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.

Battery life

The AirPods Pro are also a revelation in the battery life department — 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.

"Can I give these 10 stars?" a fellow fan said. "The audio and mic quality is amazing. They turn on automatically when you put them in your ears; even if it’s in the middle of the conversation they connect and the audio switches automatically. I could not be happier with these."

Apple's 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 it.

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.)
