Everyone knows that AirPods cost $159 new, and many are also aware that you can save a few bucks a pair of refurbished AirPods on Amazon for $150. Well, since Apple’s new AirPods came out and are selling for $159 just like the originals, Amazon has slashed the price of 1st-Generation Apple AirPods to just $147. Of note, there is absolutely no difference between the 1st-gen and 2nd-gen AirPods when it comes to sound quality or design. The only difference is the new model supports “Hey Siri.” Yeah, we would rather save some money, thanks.

Here are the bullet points from the product page:

  • Just take them out and they’re ready to use with all your devices, put them in your ears and they connect instantly
  • Double-tap either AirPod to activate Siri, without taking your iPhone out of your pocket
  • 5 hours of listening time on a single charge thanks to the W1 chip
  • 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
  • AirPods provide rich, high-quality AAC audio. And when you want to be heard, dual beamforming microphones filter out background noise when you make calls or talk to Siri
  • AirPods connect automatically with all your Apple devices. They’re simultaneously connected to your iPhone and Apple Watch, and sound switches instantly between the devices. Want to listen to your Mac or iPad? Just choose AirPods on those devices.
