Yesterday we shared the best early Black Friday deals you can get three weeks before the big shopping holiday on Friday, November 24. Today, we’re focusing on Apple’s AirPods lineup and sharing the best early Black Friday deals you can get on AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max.
Note: MacRumors is an affiliate partner of some of these vendors. When you click a link and make a purchase, we may receive a small payment, which helps us keep the site running.
Of course, there’s a chance we’ll see better deals on AirPods arrive as Black Friday approaches. That’s a risk anyone has to take while holiday shopping, so with that in mind, many of the deals shared below are currently the best prices ever. More information about these sales can be found on our website Black Friday report.
Best AirPods Deals
Best Black Friday deals
Starting with the cheapest AirPods model, the AirPods 2 are available for $99.00 On Amazon now, down from $129.00. As the oldest AirPods model in the range (from 2019), these may not be ideal for the audiophiles on your list, but anyone who wants a simple, comfortable pair of wireless earbuds will be happy.
Amazon has the AirPods 3 with Lightning charging case $149.99, down from $169.00. They’re upgraded in many ways from the AirPods 2, with spatial audio, Adaptive EQ, force sensor controls, sweat and water resistance, and more.
Moving on to the Pro lineup, Amazon has the AirPods Pro 2 with Lightning/MagSafe charging case $189.00 The AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C/MagSafe charging case are $199.99. For the USB-C model, this is the second best price and we expect the $189 price to return before the end of the month.
The USB-C model was just released a few weeks ago and that’s still a great price for the latest AirPods model. That’s why, as long as the two models are around the same price, we recommend the AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C over Lightning.
Finally, the high-end AirPods Max are available $479.99 On Amazon, down from $549.00. Discounts on AirPods Max have been scarce over the past few months, so this is the second best price on over-ear headphones.
