The best AirPods deals to shop Apple favorites in May 2024

They say that big things come in small packages.

Apple has proven that thousands of times over, as listeners switch from bulky headphones to the pocket-sized package of a pair of Apple AirPods, and are treated to hours of listening time, noise cancellation, personalized spatial audio, Siri connectivity, and much, much more.

By now, AirPods seem to be a part of the basic fabric of life, as essential to people’s uniforms as their pants, and Apple has taken notice, and the prices keep dropping. That’s great, too, because everyone loves them.

We’ve rounded up the best deals on Apple AirPods that we could find, from standard AirPods to Apple’s newest creation, the over-ear Apple AirPods Max.

So read on, take a peek at these great deals, and get listening.

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)

Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)

TLDR: run to this Apple AirPods deal. For over 20% off, this pair of wireless earbuds is less than $100 right now and will provide hands-free listening in a jiffy. More, they’re well-received by more than 580,000 satisfied listeners — and counting.

The buds are Siri-compatible, boast more than 24 hours of listening time (saving you the hassle of charging them every few hours) and feature in-ear detection to automatically pause your podcast or playlist if a notification is incoming.

Not to mention, we have them, and we love them. They fit snugly in your ear, and we couldn’t imagine commuting without them (even more of a reason to snag them on sale!)

Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen) Wireless Earbuds

Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Generation.

Apple’s newest model of in-ear headphones, the 2nd Generation AirPods Pro with wireless charging case, have all the same features and capabilities as the previous generation, plus many more. With richer audio experience, next-level noise cancellation, and more intuitive controls, Apple truly stepped up its game with its 2nd Generation.

Apple AirPods (3rd Generation)

White airpods

The 3rd Generation Apple AirPods offer Spatial Audio that tracks where your head is about your phone, plus a water and sweat-resistant charging case, and 6 hours of listening time.

Apple AirPods Max

Blue Apple AirPods Max

The Apple AirPods Max, which came out in Dec. 2020, are the brand’s first over-ear headphones. These headphones feature spatial sound, giving you a three-dimensional listening experience from music, TV shows, movies, podcasts and more — immersing you in sounds from every direction. The idea is to give the user a theater-like experience so you can feel like you’re in your very own concert hall.

You can also enjoy active noise canceling, transparency mode and adaptive EQ, which means the headphones will effectively tailor the sound coming out of them based on the shape of your ear.

The AirPods Max give up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge (it only takes 5 minutes of charging to get around 1.5 hours of audio!), and they’re available in five different colors.
