Quick! Apple's newest AirPods Pro just dropped to a record low price
We've sprung forward and the great outdoors are inviting you outside. If you really want great tunes to listen to while you work in the yard or the garden, or while doing your daily run, why not pick up that pair of Apple AirPods Pro that you've been eyeing? Another reason to make that move right now: They're down to $200 at Amazon — a $49 savings. That's the price they hit during the mother of all sales — Black Friday — so this discount is one that's worth grabbing.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation)
How do the AirPods Pro compare to previous models?
Good question. For one, they’re customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. Whereas previous AirPod iterations subscribed to a one-size-fits-all approach, these state-of-the-art Pros provide a special 'Ear Tip Fit Test' so you can learn which size is best for you and your unique ear shape.
Apple also redesigned these buds with a silicone tip for a comfy fit so they’ll feel better in your ear and won’t slip out halfway through a workout.
Unlike previous versions of the iconic buds, the Pros feature active noise canceling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter. "I tried my cousin's AirPods and couldn’t believe the sound quality. I decided to purchase the AirPod Pros because I wanted the controls on the earpiece itself. I can skip or go back on songs, adjust volume, start or stop music, and turn on or off the noise-cancellation option, all from the AirPod, which is super convenient — I don’t have to keep getting out my phone. The noise is so blacked out that it’s freaky. I had my siblings try it, and their faces were in shock when they realized they couldn’t hear their kids yelling. Purchase these! No regrets," gushed one customer.
A fellow fan raved about all the features you get with these earbuds. "Amazing overall, noise canceling cancels around 30 decibels of background noise, like subway or metro noise. Transparency Mode works really well and still allows you to hear most of your surroundings as long as your music/podcast isn't playing too loud. The battery life is about six hours with noise canceling and as long as I've used them, they have never died. Overall, great earbuds for the average person. They don't excel in one particular thing, but they do them all well."
As referred to earlier: AirPods Pro are also a revelation in the battery life department — six hours, compared to the previous model’s 3.5 hours. And you can drop them in their included wireless charging case to juice them up for an additional 24 hours of power.
"The battery life is about six hours, but they charge SUPER fast! I can put them on the charger for 20 to 40 minutes and they're fully charged," said one Amazon customer.
Ease of use for Apple lovers
The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any Apple device — including the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac and more.
But these buds' utility extends way beyond the Appleverse: They'll also pair with Android smartphones or tablets, not to mention Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.
Apple's AirPods Pro are a big step up in audio quality. And with the bells and whistles that the entry-level AirPods just don’t have, we think they’re well worth it.
