Amazon Prime Day is one of the best times of the year to shop for electronics, especially Apple’s AirPods. Last year, we saw significant discounts on all models and the average prices on these wireless in-ear headphones have continued to drop throughout 2021.
All models offer the ability to easily pair with Apple devices, good sound, and instant Siri access, making them a popular choice for those in need of hassle-free wireless earbuds. Prime Day 2021 is also the first major shopping event since $549 AirPods Max over-ear headphones have been released. We’re hoping to see some deals since the AirPods Max have only seen a one modest discount since their debut.
Amazon Prime Day can be pretty hectic, with timed Lightning deals and limited stock. Some deals sell out quickly, so it’s a good idea to jump on something that you’re interested in while you can. Of course, we will keep you updated with the best deals throughout the day — and night — so you won’t have to miss out on the best Amazon Prime Day has to offer.
Frequently asked questions
This year, Amazon Prime Day is expected to be in June. The event usually occurs in July with the exception being 2020 when it was pushed back to October. Amazon discounts a vast amount of its products in just about all categories on Prime Day. This tends to include everything from tech gadgets, to books, to home and kitchen and everything in between.
Amazon Prime Day sales are exclusive to Prime members. A Prime membership costs $119 per year or $12.99 a month and comes with a bunch of perks like free two-day shipping and access to Amazon Prime Video and Prime Music.
The AirPods Pro are our pick as the best AirPods overall . They’re more expensive than the standard AirPods, but offer benefits like better sound quality, fantastic noise cancellation, an adjustable fit, and water resistance for workout aficionados. They’re a great pick for iPhone owners looking for a pair of premium wireless earbuds for exercising or drowning out distractions while working or watching movies.
Apple’s standard AirPods lack many of the attributes of the AirPods Pro, including adjustable ear tips, active noise cancellation and water resistance — but still offer decent sound, while pairing easily with all Apple devices. They’re the right choice for Apple users that want to spend less and really only want a pair of wireless earbuds for casual listening.
The AirPods Max are made for those seeking top-notch audio and noise cancellation, but they’re hard to recommend at their full price of $549. It’s true that the AirPods Max offer excellent sound quality and noise cancellation wrapped in a design that’s superior to most competitors. However, you don’t need to spend that much when Sony’s $350 WH-1000XM4 also provide a great listening experience and great noise cancellation, minus the convenient AirPods pairing features and more elegant design. The AirPods Max also lack certain features we would have liked to see for the price, like a charging case and other input options for audio connections.
Most AirPods go on sale periodically throughout the year. The AirPods Pro typically cost around $200, but dropped to an all-time low of $169.99 during
. The AirPods with wireless charging case average around $160, though in March they reached an all-time low of $129.98. The AirPods with a wired charging typically run around $130 — making them the most affordable AirPods of the bunch.
Apple’s new AirPods Max over-ear headphones have steadily remained at their $549 release price — though they briefly dropped to $531.26 at the beginning of May. It is unlikely that every AirPod model will hit its all-time low this Prime Day, but we’ll be on the lookout for the best deals available.
