Yes, AirPods. From Apple. Outside of Cyber Monday, we might not recommend AirPods to Android users but the all-time low pricing available at Amazon right now makes them well worth considering — even if your daily driver is an Android phone.
Over there, the Qi-enabled true wireless earbuds are $60 off, dropping them to the record-low price we last saw during Amazon Prime Day. At this price, they are a total steal and one of the best AirPods deals around right now.
These are truly wireless earbuds, meaning there isn’t a wire connecting either bud. Place them in your ears, rock out to your favorite music, and place them back in the included charging case when they run out of battery. You can expect up to five hours of continuous listening time, and when you factor in that charging case, you get more than 24 hours of total battery life.
Pairing AirPods is as easy as opening the case, because if you have an iPhone or another Apple product, they’ll automatically be recognized and connected instantly. They also switch seamlessly between your Apple gear, so if you move from your iPhone to your iMac, AirPods will automatically switch between the two. It’s something not found with any other earbuds and is honestly kind of magical in day-to-day use. For Android or PC users, they work over Bluetooth like any other earbuds.
This deal is on the version that includes the wireless charging case, so you can just plop these down on your Qi charger of choice. Alternatively, you can still power them up with the included Lightning cable and any USB-A brick. If you don’t want or need wireless charging, then you can also score a record-low price on the wired version at Amazon.
AirPods are some of the most popular headphones out there, particularly with kids, so even if these aren’t for you they may well make a fantastic holiday gift for the iOS user in your family. It won’t be long before these become back-ordered or go back up in price, so get your order in as soon as possible if you want a set.
