Apple's AirPods 3 have returned to their lowest-ever price of $139.99, down from $179.00. Today's sale beats the Black Friday price by $10, and only Amazon is offering the deal.

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.

Unfortunately, the AirPods 3 will not arrive in time for Christmas. The fastest method will deliver around January 3-4, while the regular free shipping option has a January 4-5 delivery estimate for most places in the United States. If you're a Costco member, you may have more luck getting the AirPods 3 before Christmas at that retailer, which is also matching this sale.

In regards to AirPods with rock-bottom prices but delivery after Christmas, Amazon also has the AirPods 2 for just $89.99, down form $129.00. This is a match of the lowest price we've ever seen on this model, but it won't arrive until January 7-8 at the earliest.


In both cases, if you aren't specifically shopping for holiday presents and just want the absolute best deals on these AirPods models, now is still a great time to buy. These are the best prices we've seen all year on the AirPods 2 and AirPods 3.

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.

I picked up a pair on AirPods 3 when they went down to $139 a week or two ago and I have to say I'm very impressed with the improvements to sound quality. The bass is punchier and everything just sounds clearer and richer compared to my second generation models. My only complaint is that the new shape doesn't feel as snug in my ear as the second generation AirPods which fit perfectly, but that's an issue specific to me and my ears. Definitely recommend if anyone is on the fence.

Just FYI I just went and bought these, and there were options for delivery before xmas, if that's your thing.

Which is why you just go to Walmart, Best Buy or Target and have them price match.
