Didn't find those AirPods you wished for under the Christmas tree? Now's the perfect time to snatch some up in this New Year's sale. The coveted AirPods Pro (2nd gen) are down to $230 from $250, not a huge markdown but a good deal for an Apple product that isn't often discounted. Go ahead, you deserve it — your ears will thank you. Heart not set on Pros? Their also-awesome 3rd-gen non-Pro cousins are on sale at Walmart for just $160.
"Flying across the country four times a year, I wanted my next set of earbuds to have noise cancelling. I just joined the iPhone family a few months back so I bought these headphones and they have been awesome. Finally got to use them on an airplane last week and the noise cancellation was great for earbuds. The battery life got me through the 1.5-hour wait before the flight, the 5-hour flight, and another half an hour or so after that. They were less than halfway but not low on battery yet," said one contented customer.
AirPods provide more than just great sound. Active noise cancelling can block out unwanted noise, while the on-ear controls make it a snap to control — play and pause music, answer calls, or just activate Siri to ask a quick question. And that's just in the Pro version! The non-Pro version of AirPods has many of the same features, although they lack the noise cancelling features.
