Every Apple aficionado knows that the tech company/entertainment giant rarely slashes prices on its products — but over at Amazon, the normally $249 AirPods Pro are now marked down to just $175 (their lowest price since Black Friday), and the newly-released and nearly identical AirPods 3 are also on sale for $150 (that’s 16 percent off the original price of $179).
Ahead of President’s Day 2022 sales, it’s a good time to shop the best-selling wireless earbuds before they sell out. It’s worth noting that online pricing can be mercurial, so it’s hard to predict how long they’ll be on sale (they were last marked down in 2021 on Black Friday and Amazon Prime Day). Following the AirPods 3 announcement last October, the second-gen version of the AirPods got a price cut of $129 (down from $199), but now they’re even cheaper at $99 with the wireless charging case.
So what’s the difference between AirPods Pro and AirPods 3? Though the newest Bluetooth earbuds look strikingly similar to the former, they feature a new sound driver and support Adaptive EQ, resulting in better sound quality. Unlike the second-gen model, they’re now also resistant to sweat and water, so they’re great for workouts. If you’re watching movies with Dolby Atmos, the AirPods 3 support spatial audio and head tracking for a seamless immersive audio experience.
The sweat- and water-resistant Apple AirPods Pro offer active noise cancellation, adaptive EQ technology (which automatically tunes music according to the shape of your ear) and over 24 hours of battery life when they’re fully charged. Both earbuds are built with Apple’s speedy H1 chip, which makes them pair seamlessly with the rest of the company’s products. They also work with Android phones and other non-Apple devices via Bluetooth. And whether you’re using Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa, the AirPods play well with smart assistants, so you can use them to hear the news, time, weather and schedules.
