Head over to Amazon right now and you’ll find Apple’s popular AirPods Pro on sale at their lowest price yet. They’re out of stock, but you can still order now to lock in the discount and they’ll likely ship within a week or two. It’s a terrific deal if you don’t mind waiting a little while, but there’s actually another deal you might want to consider instead. The Sony WF1000XM3 Noise Cancelling True Wireless Earbuds with Alexa Voice Control are better than AirPods Pro in just about every way. They have a better design, better sound quality, slightly better battery life, and much better noise cancelling tech. After all, this is Sony we’re talking about here so you know they’re the best in the business. These awesome earbuds normally sell for $230, which is already less than AirPods. Head over to Amazon right now though, and you can pick up a pair for just $198.
