Verizon has returned with the first discount on the AirPods Pro 2 that we've tracked in about a month, marking the headphones down to $199.99, from $249.00. This remains the best price on the AirPods Pro 2 that we've seen so far in 2023, with the previous sale coming from Amazon.

As of now, only Verizon is offering the AirPods Pro 2 at this price. You can also get free two-day shipping on orders over $49 if you live within the contiguous United States. Additionally, if your local Verizon store has stock, there's the option of picking up the AirPods Pro 2 in store.

Apple's AirPods Pro 2 earphones feature better noise-canceling technology than the previous generation, improved Transparency mode, and an H2 chip. Overall, the earphones are similar in design to the original AirPods Pro, featuring a rounded design with silicone ear tips and a short stem.

Still feels expensive.

The $15-$20 cheapos on amazon are garbage. Bought a pair just to see and confirm my assumption. Usually takes 2-3 times to connect. The sound is pretty bad but depending on what you listen to that may be a bigger deal or not a big deal.

However, once you get into the $40-$50 range, the sound quality and connectivity drastically improves.

This may be an unpopular opinion but touch controls are annoying. Especially if you wear a beanie or other hat that covers your ears.

I wear a beanie when I run in the winter and if I have to adjust it and brush the earbuds it sees it as a control push. Or if I have to just adjust the earbuds and don't grab it very carefully it will register a control push.

Wondering if anyone with Apples AirPods has run into this issue when wearing a beanie or hat that covers the ear?

Not touching them until the autumn when they’ll release them with USB-C.

I won’t buy dead tech.
