Apple AirPods Pro 2022

Apple’s wireless earbuds are incredibly popular, even as there are hundreds (if not thousands) of competitors. As Black Friday approaches, you can get the AirPods or AirPods Pro for their lowest prices yet.

First is the second-generation AirPods with MagSafe charging, which is now on sale for $79, down from the usual cost of $89-$119. That’s the lowest price yet, but keep in mind this isn’t the third-generation model that was released in October 2021. There’s no spatial audio or improved sweat/water resistance, like on the third-gen, but the second-gen AirPods still sound great.

The AirPods Pro is a more expensive pair of earbuds, but it offers great active noise cancellation (ANC).

Also on sale is the newest AirPods Pro (second gen), which was priced at $249 when it was released earlier this year, but is now on sale for $199.99. This is Apple’s best pair of wireless earbuds, with an in-ear design for better noise isolation, and support for active noise cancellation (ANC). The sound quality is excellent, and it can charge over Lightning or MagSafe wireless charging.

Apple AirPods work best with Apple’s own devices, like iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers, but they are traditional Bluetooth earbuds. If you have a Windows PC or another device with Bluetooth, the earbuds should have no problem connecting to them — you just lose platform-specific features like Siri integration.
