2023's Prime Day AirPods deal are over… sort of. Prime Day might have finished, but actually some of the best deals are still running on AirPods – and, in fact, the single best deal is still around, so you haven't missed out!.

One of the best Prime Day deals overall this year is AirPods Pro 2 at a joint-lowest-ever price of $199, which is still available, and this is likely to be their lowest price until the Black Friday deals arrive.

There are other Prime Day AirPods deals live still too, but they're either middling discounts on the AirPods Max or on the most basic AirPods – the Pros are the deal we'd still strongly recommend, though obviously if you prefer the others, we've got all the details!

Apple only released the second generation of its AirPods Pro in September 2022, but these feature-rich earbuds have already seen great discounts on Amazon. And they've just fallen to their lowest-price again ahead of Prime Day – the last time they were at this price was in February 2023. Before that, you could find them on sale for $230, so this is one of the lowest prices we've seen recently. And considering the level of active noise cancelation that you're getting – we noted in our <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">AirPods Pro 2 review that it was "mind-blowing" – this is a top discount.  

AirPods Max: $549$449.99 at Amazon

Apple's flagship wireless headphones may be among the best sounding that we've ever tested, but – like we noted in our <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant="Amazon US"">AirPods Max review – they're very expensive. Well, now they're cheaper. This isn't the cheapest they've ever been (they've dropped to $399 before, and even $349 in one ridiculous promotion we haven't seen repeated), but this is how cheap they were on Amazon's last Prime Day. So, we're not saying a better deal definitely won't come along, but they probably won't fall lower on Amazon.

AirPods 2nd Gen: was $129 $89.99 at Amazon

At this point, we don't recommend these classic AirPods for most people – you can get better earbuds for less. But if it's cheap AirPods, and their special iPhone connectivity, that you want, here you go. This isn't the cheapest we've ever seen them, though – they've sold for as low as $79 before.

It's been a while since Apple first launched its flagship wireless over-ear headphones in 2020, but during that time they have seen some price drops. While this far from the cheapest they've been – they were on sale for £399.99 at one point. We also noted in our <a href="" data-link-merchant=""" data-link-merchant="Amazon UK"">AirPods Max review that they were particularly expensive so any price reduction is seen as a good opportunity to bag a premium pair of Apple headphones.   

Amazon Prime Day AirPods deals: FAQs

When will Prime Day AirPods deals end?

Amazon has officially announced that its 2023 Prime Day sale will take place from Tuesday, July 11, to Wednesday, July 12. That means that the official deals will end at 11:59pm PDT in the US, and 11:59 BST in the UK – however, some deals are one-day offers or Lightning deals and may end before, so be careful you don't miss out! And some deals are not part of the official Prime Day promotion, and so will actually run longer.

Do you need Amazon Prime to get these deals?

To make the most of Amazon's own official Prime Day AirPods deals, you will need an Amazon Prime subscription… but not all discounts are counted as being part of Prime Day, so it won't be essential in all cases. Thankfully, Amazon offers a free 30-day trial that you can take advantage of in the run-up to the sales event.

Last year, we also saw Amazon Prime Day AirPods deals at other retailers as well, with price matching or even better deals in some places, and the best part, there's no membership requirement to shop these offers.
