Considering how ridiculously popular they are, it really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Amazon completely sold out of two different AirPods models early last month. After all, AirPods are wildly popular even when they’re selling at full retail, yet Amazon always offers discounts. The first model that sold out was Apple’s AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case, but they’re now back in stock and back on sale with a nice big $50 discount that slashes them to just $149.98, the lowest price of the year so far. The other model should be beyond obvious since it sells out all the time — it’s Apple’s beloved AirPods Pro, which are the #1 best-selling headphones among our readers and are also among the best-selling earphones on the planet.

Now, we have some wonderful news: Not only are all of Apple’s beloved AirPods models back in stock after selling out, but they’re also on sale at the lowest prices of 2021 so far on Amazon. And believe it or not, that includes an extremely rare discount on AirPods Max, which never go on sale with any discounts!

AirPods Pro will cost you $249 if you buy a pair at an Apple store or if you order them online from Apple’s website. And of course, that’s true whether you get them right now or even during a huge sales event like Black Friday. Apple doesn’t do discounts, as most people know all too well.

Needless to say, AirPods Pro are worth every penny at full retail, but why pay so much when Amazon always has them on sale at a discount?

Amazon shoppers can often find AirPods Pro on sale for $219, which is a solid $30 in savings. Then, on rare occasions like Prime Day and Black Friday, you might find an even bigger discount. With Mother’s Day 2021 right around the corner, AirPods Pro are finally back in stock at Amazon — and they’re now on sale for just $197. That means you’ll save $52 compared to buying them from Apple, and it’s Amazon’s lowest price of the year so far!

Every other AirPods model is also discounted at the moment on Amazon, including one discount that just got even deeper. As we mentioned earlier, AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case are down to $149.98 this week, which is the lowest price we’ve seen so far this year.

On top of all that, there’s one last thing you might want to note: Apple’s hot new AirPods Max are still hard to find in stock in some stores, but they’re actually available at Amazon right now. In fact, not only are they in stock and available to ship out right away, they’re actually on sale with the first real discount we’ve ever seen! AirPods Max NEVER go on sale with any meaningful discount, but Amazon is offering a $17 discount on the silver color, which is by far the most popular color among our readers. They’re still pricey, but they’re amazing and why would you spend full price if you can save a few bucks?
