Apple AirPods Pro (first-gen) deals

Apple may have just launched a new generation of AirPods Pro with improved noise cancellation and other nifty new features at its recent iPhone 14 event, but the first-gen model is still worth considering thanks to its frequent discounts. If you own an iPhone or multiple Apple products, the original AirPods Pro have been some of the best true wireless earbud options on the market since their release in 2019. Unlike the base AirPods, the Pros offer better sound quality and feature active noise cancellation, not to mention seamless integration with iOS and a MagSafe-compatible charging case.

While the AirPods Pro carry a lofty $249 price tag — the same the second-gen version will sell for upon their September 23rd release) — they go on sale with some regularity. During Black Friday and Cyber Monday, for instance, we saw them drop as low as $160. They’re no longer available at that price, but you can get a pair of first-gen Pros with a MagSafe charging case right now for $179.99 at Amazon and Walmart. Considering how often the Pros are on sale, and with their impending replacement, you definitely do not want to spend more than that. It may even be advisable to wait for bigger discounts or see if you think the new model is worth ponying up for once we review them.

The last-gen AirPods Pro improve upon the regular AirPods with better sound quality, excellent active noise cancellation, and immersive spatial audio.

Apple AirPods (second-gen) deals

Alternatively, you can buy a pair of entry-level second-generation AirPods with a wired charging case. The base AirPods normally retail for $129, but you can currently get them for $99.99 at Amazon and Walmart. That’s usually the best price we see them regularly drop to with the rare exception of around the holidays, when they sometimes fall to $89. They’re a little dated now, with sound quality that falls in the “okay” category, but they’re as cheap as you can get for Apple’s own line of wireless earbuds — complete with easy connectivity to iPhones, iPads, and Macs thanks to the built-in H1 chip.

The second-gen AirPods with an included wireless charging case are all but gone now, unless you’re shopping used or refurbished. Though, if you prefer that added convenience, it’s probably best to shop for a deal on the newer third-gen AirPods.

The AirPods are Apple’s second generation of true wireless earbuds and the cheapest model in the AirPods lineup.

Apple AirPods (third-gen) deals

Last on the AirPods block is the third-gen model, the latest iteration of base AirPods. These earbuds blend a bit of the AirPods Pro look with the hard plastic build of the second-gen model and come with a MagSafe-compatible wireless charging case. They also offer IPX4 water resistance, improved sound quality, and a slightly higher retail price of $179.

We’ve seen the third-gen AirPods on sale for as low as $140, but they are currently available for a solidly discounted price of $149.99 at Amazon and Walmart. That’s about $30 off their regular price and definitely worth considering over the aging second-gen version if you can spare the money and prefer the newer design and conveniences of MagSafe charging.

$149.99

Similar in appearance to their sleeker sibling, the AirPods Pro, the latest entry-level AirPods boast a new charging case and shorter stems. They’re also water resistant, unlike the 2019 model, and sport better battery life.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro deals

Samsung has a few different wireless earbuds to choose from, and it launched a new premium pair, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, just last month. The original Galaxy Buds Pro have a lower MSRP and a history of frequent deals, making them still a fine option if you’re an Android user or Samsung devotee who wants premium buds without paying quite the premium price. The original Galaxy Buds Pro include active noise cancellation and some very fine sound quality that Samsung has only now eclipsed with the new version.

At their lowest, the Galaxy Buds Pro have fallen to around $120, and perhaps now that the new Buds 2 Pro (sounds like a Fast & Furious film) are in the world and selling for a pricier $229.99, the discounts may hopefully continue getting better. Though, for now, Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart all have the Galaxy Buds Pro for $149.99 ($50 off) in various colors.

$149.99

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro have a blend of tech found in the Buds Plus and Buds Live, with the best sound quality the company has achieved yet in a pair of earbuds.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 deals

Samsung released the Galaxy Buds 2 — a good-sounding pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation, wireless charging, and a subtle design — in August 2021, and we’ve seen plenty of discounts since. Right now, the best price around is $74.99 (half off) at Woot for an imported international model — which are not physically different but are limited to a 90-day warranty through Woot. For US models with a full one-year warranty, Best Buy has them in black for $119.99 ($30 off), and Amazon has them in lavender for $129.99. Those deals on Samsung’s entry-level buds are not bad, and these Galaxy Buds 2 do hit above their weight class with noise cancellation and good audio quality.

$119.99

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 have a stylish, low-profile design, and the earbuds are incredibly comfortable to wear even for long amounts of time. The earbuds feature active noise cancellation, pleasing sound quality, and wireless charging.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live deals

The Galaxy Buds Live are some of the more unconventional wireless earbuds on the market right now, but don’t let their bean-shaped design fool you. The Buds Live are a good option if you want smaller earbuds that produce powerful sound and showcase marathon battery life. Right now, you can purchase a pair of the Galaxy Buds Live in black from Amazon for just $89.99 ($70 off). That matches the cheapest price we’ve seen in the past, which was usually only a flash sale or lightning deal. It’s very possible this one may be fleeting; other retailers, like Best Buy, Target, and Walmart, have all colors for $109.99.

$89.99

Samsung’s unconventional wireless earbuds are shaped like beans, but they produce a powerful sound and come with lengthy battery life.

Sony LinkBuds deals

The Sony LinkBuds are a clear departure from conventional earbuds, using an “open-style,” donut-shaped design instead of the more typical silicone ear tips. This allows for better spatial awareness and, for some, a more comfortable fit. The LinkBuds also provide crisp sound quality and excellent voice call performance. (Though, as a result of their design, they aren’t very practical in louder environments.) Possibly the coolest feature, though, are the controls, which allow you to tap the side of your head to control them instead of the earbud itself. They’re certainly very Sony.

Normally running $179.99, you can currently get a pair in white for $159.99 ($20 off) at Walmart. These are about $10 away from the lowest prices we’ve seen for these unique earbuds that are still a little fresh on the market.

$159.99

Sony’s LinkBuds have a standout design that’s rooted in comfort and an airy, open sound. They also excel when used for voice calls, outshining pretty much all competitors.

Sony WF-C500 deals

If you’re looking for a pair of Sony earbuds that are much more budget-friendly, consider the Sony WF-C500. These affordable earbuds came out at the end of 2021, and they prove their worth with good sound quality, excellent battery life, and very aggressive pricing. You may not get active noise cancellation or wireless charging with these earbuds, but they remain an exceptional value. Currently, they are available in black at Walmart and Amazon for $69 (about $30 off). Note that the price at Amazon is hidden until you add the earbuds to your cart.

$69

The Sony WF-C500 are a budget-friendly pair of earbuds that prioritize sound quality and battery life. The small and pocket-friendly charging case carries one additional charge, totaling 20 hours of listening time.

Jabra Elite 7 Active deals

Some of the things that make Jabra earbuds enticing are the value on offer and the excellent multipoint Bluetooth support. The latest midtier wireless earbuds from Jabra, the Elite 7 Active, are no exception. These are fitness-focused alternatives to the Jabra Elite 7 Pro, and they feature multipoint compatibility for connecting to two devices simultaneously.

Normally going for $179.99, the Jabra Elite 7 Active are available for $119.63 (about $60 off) at Amazon in dark blue. This is nearly the lowest price on the Jabra Elite 7 Active, making them a great option if you work out a lot and find the multidevice pairing especially handy. Though, if you prefer other color options, you have some more options at Target and Best Buy for $129.99 ($50 off).

$119.63

Nearly indistinguishable from the Elite 7 Pro in appearance, the Elite 7 Active make the Pro model more workout-friendly with a rubberized coating that gives them IPX7 water resistance and prevents them from falling out during a workout.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 deals

Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 are another pair of excellent noise-canceling earbuds that are currently on sale. As noted in our review, the earbuds offer great ANC performance, customizable controls, and sound that can nearly match that of a premium pair of noise-canceling over-ear headphones. This does come at a fairly steep regular price of $299.95, and, now, there’s a new model that delivers more features for $249.95. So it’s possible we’ll see the Momentum True Wireless 2 get phased out soon.

In the meantime, the Momentum True Wireless 2 are still available and selling for a much lower $149.98 (about $150 off) in white at Amazon and Best Buy. This is the lowest price we’ve seen on these earbuds from the premium audio company.

$149.98

Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds offer sublime sound quality and satisfactory noise cancellation.

Beats Fit Pro deals

The Beats Fit Pro are the latest fitness earbuds from Apple and offer a sportier design and better sound than the first-gen AirPods Pro. The wing tips help to keep these earbuds secure during active movements and comfortable over long listening sessions. Their functionality with Android phones is slightly limited, but if you use an iPhone, you get all the conveniences of Apple’s H1 chip and deeper OS integration and connectivity. These may be some of the best earbuds you can buy, though they’re not without flaws. Namely, the case is overly large and lacks wireless charging (which is more forgivable at lower prices).

For the longest time, the Beats Fit Pro did not go on sale at all, but we’ve seen them drop as low as $160 during Amazon Prime Day. Currently, you can get them for the regular $199.95 at Amazon with an included $25 Amazon gift card.

$199.95

The Beats Fit Pro earbuds have integrated wing tips that help keep them secure during runs and workouts. They also have excellent noise cancellation, and their sound has just the right amount of bass and kick to keep you motivated.

Beats Powerbeats Pro deals

If you’re currently in the market for a reliable pair of wireless earbuds for your workouts, it’s hard to go wrong with the predecessor to the Studio Buds, the Beats Powerbeats Pro. These earbuds from 2019 sport an over-ear hook that keeps them in place while you’re exercising; they also offer IPX4 sweat- and water-resistant, meaning you don’t have to worry about ruining them should your workout get intense.

Typically $249.95, the Beats Powerbeats Pro are on sale in select colors at Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, Target, and the official Beats storefront, all of which are selling them in several colors for about $199.99. We’ve seen them sell for much cheaper before — they were on sale for around $150 throughout November and December 2021 — but this is the usual discount you’ll find on what would otherwise be a $250 pair of earbuds.

$199.95

The Beats Powerbeats Pro provide up to nine hours of battery life, with 24 hours provided by the case. They’re IPX4 sweat- and water resistant, too, and feature Apple’s H1 chip for easy pairing and hands-free Siri commands.

UE Fits deals

After testing a pair for ourselves, we remarked in our review that the UE Fits were the most comfortable consumer earbuds on the market. That’s because, unlike the other wireless earbuds on this list, the UE Fits are uniquely capable of permanently molding to the shape of your ears in just 60 seconds, making them a great choice for those concerned their earbuds may come loose or fall out. We also found that they offer good sound quality, as well as lengthy, eight-hour battery life. Normally $199.99, you can get them right now for just $159 direct from Ultimate Ears in gray, lilac, midnight blue, or in the limited edition hot pink for $10 more at $169.

$159

The UE Fits come with ear tips that permanently mold to the unique shape of your ears in just 60 seconds. This allows for a much better fit that you can comfortably wear for hours.
