  • Apple’s extremely popular AirPods Pro are also on sale right now at Amazon, and they’re back down to Black Friday’s all-time low price.
  • Even with Amazon’s discount, AirPods Pro still cost almost $40 more than the rival Sony earphones today, which is a big price difference when you consider that the Sony pair is widely believed to offer superior sound quality and noise cancelling tech.

Earlier on Tuesday, we told you about a killer deal on Amazon that offers a rare discount on Apple’s AirPods Pro. Apple’s wildly popular true wireless earbuds flew off the virtual shelves last year on Black Friday and Cyber Monday when Amazon slashed the price for the first time ever, and that all-time low price is now back once again at the nation’s top online retailer. If you want a pair of AirPods Pro, now is most certainly the time to pull the trigger because you won’t find them for less money anywhere. If you’re willing to go a different route, however, there’s a pair of cord-free earbuds on sale right now from Sony that many people believe are superior to Apple’s AirPods Pro in every way.

If you’re an audiophile or even just someone who appreciates high-quality headphones, you’ve undoubtedly head about Sony’s WF1000XM3 true wireless noise cancelling earbuds. Sony entered the noise cancelling over-ear headphones space and then dominated it with the WH1000XM3 ANC headphones despite Bose’s early lead, and the company has pretty much done the same thing with the WF1000XM3 earbuds in the AMC earphone market. They weren’t the first cord-free earbuds to feature noise cancellation, but they’re widely believed to be the best.

Even on a normal day, Sony WF1000XM3 ANC earbuds cost less than Apple’s rival AirPods Pro earphones. They retail for about $230 while Apple sells its ANC earbuds for around $250. With the AirPods Pro on sale for $235 on Tuesday though, it’s a much more difficult decision if you’re trying to decide between the two. Well, it would be a more difficult decision, that is, if Sony’s buds weren’t also on sale. Head over to Amazon right now and you’ll find Sony WF1000XM3 true wireless ANC earbuds on sale for just $188.90, beating the AirPods Pro by almost $40. That’s even less than they cost last year on Black Friday!
