Amazon today has returned with the year's best price on the AirPods Pro 2 at $199.99, down from $249.00. The last time we saw this deal was earlier in March when Verizon was offering it, but as of this week only Amazon has the AirPods Pro 2 at this price.

Good price. I got it on launch day for $250 and it’s been worth every penny for me.

I need to buying them, quick question: how long is the battery life? an aprox? I know is not possible replace the battery, so they are a disposable objects.

I use them all day and only have to charge them once every three days, thanks to the case also being charged. And both can be fully charged up together in an hour.

Ya see THIS is also part of the genius with AirPods that changed the industry.

Prior to the original AirPods I don't recall ANY True Wireless earphones that HAD battery in the holding case - not even those ancient Jawbone ERA from 2014!

Since then every manufacturer did:
Jabra,
Bose,
Sony,
etc etc etc.

This is the price.
When I read this, I just heard it in the voice of The Mandalorian: "This is the way".

But if these were truly Mandalorian Air Pods then you would not be allowed to remove them in somebody else's presence without breaking the creed.

Side note: I remember buying the first generation AirPods and lots of folks I knew thought they looked funny or strange simply because they did not have annoying wires hanging from them. Flash forward a few years and now everybody thinks they look normal and even cool. I never understood the initial aversion some people had to having truly wireless earbuds. I have enjoyed my AirPods and later my AirPods Pro (which are still going strong). Despite that, I am considering buying the AirPods Pro 2 at this price for the additional battery life for those days that have non-stop zoom meetings.

I lost my right earbud on my first gen APP last night, and after searching nearly all day for it, I just gave up and purchased this set from Amazon. It’s a shame, because I had been using that first gen for quite some time (it was a replacement) and it seemed to have escaped the cracking and popping other pairs I’ve owned eventually developed.

AirPods were revolutionary in their form factor. Battery in the case, no on/off switch made them usable for everyday people.

It always make me smile when people underestimate that aspect.

I just bought the Pros the other day from Apple because I had gift cards to cover the entire purchase. I was one who couldn't get a good fit with the 1st gen, so I passed them on to my spouse. The XS tip fits me perfectly and provides a secure fit, and I'm in love.

Just bought them earlier today and they're arriving in a few hours!

I've had the Pro 1st gen since 2019 and only had the earbuds replaced last year due to the cracking and popping that started to show at no cost, and had no problems since. The price is good for these so I caved, looks like these ones will last for a good while as welll!
