This is particularly notable given the fact that the AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging case is being discontinued from the AirPods lineup. Moving forward, Apple will sell the AirPods with Wired Charging Case for $129.00 as the entry-level AirPods model.



We track sales for every model of the AirPods in our Best AirPods Deals guide, so be sure to bookmark that page while you shop around for the wireless headphones.

Cheaper and infinitely better tap controls? That’s what I’ll be swapping my current exercise focused gen 2’s for when the batteries finally give up the ghost.

Wish I would have bit the bullet when Amazon had the Pros for $179 last week. I keep checking daily just to see if they come back… not yet but fingers crossed it does!

i know, i can't stand this 'squeeze' crap. i use gen 2 as my go-to, and just last week finally received the "nothing one"s, which i'm really enjoying so far. you can even control volume with a swipe.

Amazon had a one day sale on them a week or so ago and I picked up a pair then. Never had earbuds before figure on sale was a good time to try a pair, especially since I don't care about the new features like noise cancelling and so on. They are nice, but one issue I was concerned about happened the right earbud has fallen out a couple times when out walking wearing them. So I brought a AirPod leash for them so if it falls out it will just hang around my neck so for $6 solved that problem.

I used a deal from work. We use virgin pulse which incentivizes you to improve your health. I had $160 in rewards on there so converted them to apple gift cards. Got the AirPods 3 for $35 with tax and shipping.

I wonder how comfortable the airpod 3 compared to the first gen. That’s the main reason why I love the AirPods vs the Pro and Max.

I feel like the force press controls on the AirPods 3 (and Pro) are harder to use than the tapping gestures on AirPods 2, does anyone else think so? I owned the Pro for about 3 days and returned it because every time I tried to use the force touch I'd wind up loosening it's fit in my ear...

I just bought the AirPods 3 and am worried it'll be the same problem....
