Early last month, Amazon kicked off a crazy sale on Apple’s AirPods. How crazy was it, you ask? All four models including noise cancelling AirPods Pro and hot new AirPods Max were on sale at the lowest prices of the year. Amazon’s AirPods Pro price matched its huge discount from Prime Day. And the sale on AirPods Max somehow had even lower prices than Prime Day. Today, however, we have good news and bad news. The good news is that all four of Apple’s AirPods models are still on sale with deep discounts. The bad news is that prices are already starting to climb, so there’s only one model that’s still available at Amazon’s lowest price of 2021. It’s Amazon’s AirPods 2 price, whcih is the lowest it’s been all year. Why wait for the AirPods 3 when you can score a deal like this?

AirPods 2 price and AirPods Pro price on Amazon

AirPods are wildly popular even when they’re available at Apple’s full retail prices. So you can imagine how fast they flew off the shelves on Prime Day back in June. Amazon was offering the deepest discounts of the year, so several AirPods versions sold out. The first model that sold out was Apple’s AirPods 2 with Wired Charging Case, but they’re now back in stock and back on sale with a nice big $40 discount that slashes them to just $119. The other model that sold out 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. They also happen to be among the best-selling earphones on the planet.

Today, we have some fantastic news. Apple’s beloved AirPods models are back in stock after having sold out. Better yet, they’re also back on sale at Amazon’s lowest price of 2021! Before you buy any of those headphones, however, there’s another deal you need to know about. Believe it or not, Apple’s insanely hot AirPods Max, which almost never go on sale with any discount, are down to a new all-time low price too!

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 during a huge sales event. Apple doesn’t do discounts, as most people know quite well. It should go without saying that 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. They sell out pretty often though, just like they did during Prime Day earlier this year. AirPods Pro are now back in stock at Amazon — and they’re on sale for just $197. That means you’ll save $52 compared to buying them from Apple. It’s also Amazon’s lowest price of the year, matching the deal from Prime Day 2021!

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 Wired Charging Case are down to $119 right now, which is the lowest price we’ve seen so far this year for the general public. And on top of all that, there’s one last thing you might want to note.

Apple’s hot new AirPods Max are still sometimes hard to find in stock in stores in certain colors, but they’re available at Amazon in every colorway. It’s great that they are in stock and available to ship out right away. But they’re also actually on sale at a new all-time low price. We can’t believe it! AirPods Max almost never go on sale with any meaningful discount. But Amazon is offering a big $50 price cut! They’re still pricey, but you’re probably not going to find a deeper discount anytime soon.

As we mentioned earlier, AirPods are all still on sale but most models are no longer down to Amazon’s lowest prices of the year. That means Amazon’s discount on AirPods 2 with Wired Charging Case will probably shrink soon, too. This could be your last chance for a long time to score a pair at this price. Don’t miss out!
