Apple AirPods Deals

If you own an iPhone or multiple Apple products, the AirPods Pro are probably the best true wireless earbuds on the market for you. Unlike the basic AirPods, the Pro variant offers better sound quality and active noise cancellation, not to mention seamless integration with iOS.

Apple’s flagship Pro wireless earbuds tend to go on sale often, and we often see them drop to $200. Right now, for example, you can get a new pair for $190 at Walmart or Amazon. There is currently also available in store at Staples for $180.

Apple’s flagship earbuds improve on regular AirPods with better sound quality, excellent active noise cancellation, and immersive spatial audio.

Alternatively, you can buy a pair of second-generation AirPods, which include a wired or wireless charging case. While they normally sell for $160, you can get the version with the wired charging case for $119 at Walmart or Amazon.

If you prefer a little more convenience, you can get a new pair of AirPods with a wireless charging case for a few bucks more. At their regular price of $200, they’re not that great value, but you’ll rarely find yourself paying the usual price. Right now you can get them for $150 at walmart and Amazon.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Deals

Samsung has a few different wireless earbuds to choose from, including its latest flagship wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds Pro. These earbuds feature active noise cancellation and the best sound quality yet for Samsung earbuds.

There are currently a few deals going on at Amazon and Target, both of which are offering the Galaxy Buds Pro for $30 off, bringing the price down to $170.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro features a mix of technology found in the Buds Plus and Buds Live, delivering the best sound quality the company has yet achieved in earbuds.

The Galaxy Buds Plus was our top pick for the best wireless earbuds overall last year. A successor to the original Galaxy Buds, the Plus model extends battery life by up to 11 hours and, unlike AirPods, comes in an assortment of colors. Right now you can buy the Galaxy Buds Plus for $100 in places like Amazon, Best Buy, and Target, which is the lowest price we’ve seen in recent months.

The Galaxy Buds Plus is a successor to the Galaxy Buds. The biggest change from this model is that the battery life has almost doubled compared to the Galaxy Buds.

The Galaxy Buds Live are some of the more unconventional wireless earbuds on the market today, but don’t let their bean-shaped design fool you. The Buds Live is a good option if you want earbuds that produce powerful sound and show marathon battery life.

Right now you can pick up a pair of Galaxy Buds Live for $130 at B&H Photo, Amazon, and Best Buy, more than 10 percent off their initial suggested retail price.

Sony WF-1000XM3 deals

Sony’s WF-1000XM4 are the true wireless headphones to beat, but they haven’t been discounted yet given how recently they launched. However, their predecessor, the WF-1000XM3, remains an excellent pair of headphones that regularly go on sale.

Like the most recent model, the WF-1000XM3 has phenomenal sound quality and significant battery life, a small feat for a pair of true wireless earbuds. They also manage to deliver noise cancellation in a sleek copper-adorned package, one that’s both attractive and professional. Typically $230, Sony’s last-generation WF-1000XM3 is on sale at Amazon and Best Buy for $198 and $200 respectively, a notable increase in their Prime Day prices.

Originally released in 2018, the WF-1000XM3s still hold up well against the competition when it comes to battery life and sound quality, even if they aren’t quite as capable as their successor.

Other deals on true wireless earbuds

Compared to the competition, Jabra’s wireless earbuds have a rare feature that has not yet become standard in the true wireless earbud market: the ability to connect to two devices simultaneously. Ideally, this is great for users who frequently switch between two devices (such as a phone and a laptop, for example).

Last year, Jabra released the Elite 85t wireless earbuds, the highest model in the Jabra range. They have more advanced noise cancellation than the 75t, but they also have less bass and an inferior fit. If you can live with those compromises, though, you can pick up the Jabra Elite 85t for $230 — the standard list price — at Amazon, Best Buy, and Jabra.

If the standard retail price on the Elite 85t is intimidating, but you want a pair of Jabra earbuds, the Elite 75t are a good option too, and they see price cuts on a regular basis. We consider the Jabra 75t – currently on sale in gold for $113 at Amazon and Best Buy — the best true wireless earbuds for multitaskers, and they remain a solid alternative if you don’t want to buy AirPods.

Jabra’s Elite 75t earbuds offer pleasant bass, reliable performance and can connect to two devices at the same time, such as a phone and laptop.

The Beats Studio Buds may have just launched, but if you’re currently looking for a reliable pair of wireless earbuds for your workouts, you can’t go wrong with the Beats Powerbeats Pro. These earbuds have an over-ear hook that keeps them in place during intense exercise. They’re also IPX4 sweat and water resistant, so you don’t have to worry about ruining them when your workout gets intense.

There are now a few different discounts available for the Powerbeats Pro. The lowest we see right now is on Best Buy, Amazon, and walmart, where you can pick up the black, blue, or white model for $180.

Beats Powerbeats Pro

Beats Powerbeats Pro wireless earphones offer up to nine hours of continuous battery life, with 24 hours provided by the case. They are IPX4 sweat and water resistant and feature Apple’s H1 chip for easy pairing and hands-free “Hey Siri” voice commands.

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

While they normally sell for $120, they are now on sale at Best Buy for $80, more than 30 percent off Amazon’s typical retail price.

Amazon Echo Buds (second generation)

Amazon’s Echo Buds 2 improve upon the originals with a more comfortable design, improved ANC, and a more natural ambient sound mode. They also still offer hands-free Alexa voice commands.
