‘It was like the sound was all around me’: The newest AirPods are down to $140, matching their all-time low

Apple AirPods continue to rank among the top-rated, top-selling earbuds on the market. And with good reason: They’re amazing. Unfortunately, they can also be really expensive. Right now, though, you can save some dough on third-generation Apple AirPods. They bridge the gap between the less-expensive second-gen AirPods and the more expensive AirPod Pros, and they’re on sale at Amazon.


If you haven’t made the jump to truly wireless earbuds, now’s your chance — especially if you’re an iPhone, iPad or MacBook user.

While the $29 discount might not seem substantial, it’s on par with the lowest price of all time for these third-generation AirPods, which are Apple’s newest model. That’s equal to their Black Friday price. Sure, you can hold out for a bigger discount — but we have no idea when you might see one!

AirPods seamlessly pair and sync with iPhones, iPads, MacBooks, iMac desktops and the Apple TV streaming box. Once juiced, your Pods are good to go — no scrolling, no fiddling with settings. They’re even ready to pair with all your Apple devices via your Apple iCloud account. That’s what sets these buds apart. Well, that, plus crystal-clear audio and a super-sleek design.

You can expect about five hours of battery life per charge, and more with the wireless charging case. How does the wireless charging case work? Just place it on most any wireless charging pad or stand (not included) for a full charge. And don’t worry if you run out of juice while you’re away from home — just pop these babies back into their case for 15 minutes and you’ll get up to three more hours of battery life.

You still get the option to plug the case into a wall outlet or laptop for a charge via Lightning cords too. So really, these Apple AirPods feature the best of both worlds when it comes to getting juiced.

Over 16,000 fans have given these shiny new AirPods an astounding five-star review.

One shopper raved about the sound quality. They said it was so good they initially thought something was wrong: “The sound quality is great. I don’t know any other way to describe it other than saying it felt like the sound was all around me and not just in my ear. I was waiting for my car to be serviced, watching a show on my iPad. I was so paranoid and kept taking one out. I just knew they weren’t paired properly and everyone in the waiting room could hear my loud TV show. That’s how good the sound is.”

And if you’re accident prone, these are durable enough to handle it: “Accidentally went through not only the washing machine but dryer too and they still work! Great quality. Best in my opinion as someone who’s owned JBL, Beats and Jaybird wireless earbuds. These are the best hands down.”

If you already have the second-generation AirPods and don’t think there’s a need to upgrade, some fans would disagree. “I got the upgrade, not expecting much difference. But I was shocked to find out how much different they were, and how much better they were!”

Of course, it’s not all sunshine and roses. Some users reported that the AirPods wouldn’t always stay in their ears. “My only complaint is the bud itself is bigger, and it will slide out of your ears if you are moving around a lot or working out. This may not be an issue with some people, but my ears are pretty average.”

Other reviewers back up that complaint. “They are much wider than the previous versions and fall out of my ears constantly. I decided to buy the silicone covers in the hopes that they keep them in my ears.”
