See that map pictured at the top of this post? Yeah, that’s what Apple’s AirPods inventory looks like across the country right now. That’s right… nearly two months after Apple first launched its new truly wireless AirPods earbuds, it’s still next to impossible to find them in stock at an Apple store. Shipping quotes for online orders vary — Apple’s online store says new orders ship in 6 weeks, and Best Buy orders won’t be delivered until the end of March. As always, however, you can get AirPods right this minute on Amazon if you’re willing to pay a premium. But guess what: That premium is now lower than it has ever been.
AirPods can now be had on Amazon for as little as $230, which is about $50 less than the average price on Amazon just one week ago. Check out the AirPods page on Amazon right here, and click on “other sellers” to see what your options are. Just make sure that if you decide to buy a pair, you make sure the seller you choose has good feedback.
Some highlights from the product page:
- Audio automatically plays as soon as you put them in your ears and pauses when you take them out.
- To adjust the volume, Change the song, make a call, or even get directions, just double-tap to activate Siri.
- Because the ultralow-power W1 chip manages battery life so well, airpods deliver an industry-leading 5 hours of listening time on One charge.
- They’re made to keep up with you, thanks to a charging case that holds multiple additional charges for more than 24 hours of listening time.
- Need a quick charge? just 15 minutes in the case gives you 3 hours of listening time.
