Amazon is now matching Walmart's price on the AirPods Pro with MagSafe, available for $159.00, down from $249.00. These are shipped and sold directly from Amazon, and although stock is low you can still get them in time for the holidays (mid December as of writing).

Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner with some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.

Stock may begin dwindling soon, however, due to this sale being one of the best all-around deals on Apple products happening this week. We aren't expecting to see any better discounts on the all-new AirPods Pro on Friday, so if you want a pair, buy them now.



If you're shopping for other AirPods, the AirPods 3 are $149.99 right now on Amazon, down from $179.00. You'll need to add these to your cart for an automatic coupon to apply to your order. Additionally, AirPods Max are back to their all-time low price of $429.00 on Amazon, down from $549.00.

Lastly, AirPods 2 have reached a low price of $99.99 this week, down from $129.00. This is another deal that will be reflected in the checkout screen after an automatic coupon is applied to the order.

We're keeping track of all this season's best deals in our Black Friday 2021 Roundup. You can also find more of our daily deals and other offers in our Deals Roundup.

AirPods have Magsafe?
This model just came out very recently. My understanding is that the difference is only the case, nothing about the AirPods themselves is different.

The normal AirPods Pro case will also work with MagSafe, but it just doesn't 'stick' to the charging puck. This new model has a magnet so it will self-center and stick to the puck.

Just ordered. Nice, this is my family's 3rd pair now in a few months but this is the best deal so far!

This is tempting.....

I have the Powerbeats Pro. I understand they don't have the active noise cancelling, but everything else about them I like (fit, battery life). I'm not exactly sure when I would use the AirPods Pro versus the PowerBeats Pro.

I bought another set. Good to have a backup pair for each time I have to send them back to Apple when the speaker inevitably blows.

Alright…I returned the AirPods Pro I bought from Amazon for $199 over a week ago and bought these. Amazon no longer offers price adjustments on Apple products after 7 days so they’d rather give me a new set and pay shipping both ways than just give me $40 gift card. Sigh.

Ordered the pros through my Amazon app on my iPhone. Returning the AirPods 3 I got today = too big for my ear openings. I mean my ear openings are sore just having them in 5 minutes.

Difference was $4 more for the pros. YouTube videos say I should have a much better fit experience with the pros.

Oh they do that on other products? You have to contact the customer support abd ask for it?

When does this happen?

I've had a pair for 12 months and they're fine so far.
For some (including me) it happens about one or two months of receiving a new pair. Mine have been replaced six times so far.

FWIW, it does seem to happen mostly for people who use them while exercising or otherwise moving around (jogging, walking, etc.)

This thread, which is now up to nearly 40 pages and 1,000 posts, covers the issue pretty well:
