This year's Amazon Prime Day event is over, but among the Prime Day deals were some great savings on all current AirPods models… and some of these deals are still running now, so you might not have missed out yet. 

Our AirPods deals guide includes the top offers in the US and UK just below, including the popular AirPods 3, the noise-cancelling AirPods Pro, and even the mighty AirPods Max.

The AirPods Pro and AirPods 3, in particular, still have the same discounts as they did on Prime Day, so you haven't missed out if you're looking for those.

However, the best deals we found on earbuds weren't on AirPods at all, so if you can be tempted by other brands, take a look out these still-running Prime Day headphones deals to see if anything else would suit you better.

– To get Apple's noise-cancelling earbuds for the best price this Prime Day, Amazon is your best port of call. This isn't quite the lowest they've ever been – they dropped to $159 last Black Friday – but it's as cheap as they've ever been otherwise. A great deal.

AirPods 3rd Gen (latest version):  $179

AirPods 3rd Gen (latest version): $179 $164.99 at Walmart
Save $15 – These aren't much of a deal, but this price at Walmart is the best we've found so far over Prime Day for the latest AirPods. Compared to the cheapest version, they give you better audio quality, Spatial Audio and more battery life.

– Apple's noise-cancelling earbuds are still up there with the best true wireless earbuds when it comes to balancing features, noise-blocking skills, sound quality, and comfort. This is a good price compared to normal, though they have dropped as low as £170 for short periods in recent months.

AirPods 3rd Gen (latest version):  £169

AirPods 3rd Gen (latest version): £169 £149 at Amazon
Save £20 – This is the best deal we've found on AirPods 3rd Gen (Apple's latest version of its earbuds that don't have the noise cancellation you get in AirPods Pro) in the UK this Prime Day, but it's not much of a blockbuster. In recent months, these have dropped a few times to £145 or even £135, so it may be worth hanging on.

AirPods Max: £549

AirPods Max: £549 £443 at Amazon
Save $106
This is a decent price for Apple's awesome-sounding over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation. In the past, we've seen them for as low as £399, but rarely – they've also been around £429 on occasion. If you want a pair today, this is the best price we've seen, and we think they're worth it at this price still – they sound incredible.

Which AirPods Prime Day deal is best for me?

Not sure whether to buy the AirPods (2nd Gen), AirPods (3rd Gen), AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max? Here are the key differences between the Apple headphones

The AirPods (2nd Gen) and AirPods Pro (3rd Gen) are true wireless earbuds that sit just outside your ear canal, and don't provide active noise cancellation. AirPods Pro are also true wireless earbuds, but feature an in-ear fit and ANC. 

The AirPods (2nd Gen) are the cheapest, and feature the most basic sound quality, no Spatial Audio support for head-tracked 3D sound, and no wireless charging. The AirPods Pro (3rd Gen) add better sound, Spatial Audio, longer battery life, wireless charging and a new design with shorter 'sticks'.

These all feature support for 'Hey Siri' voice control, instant switching between Apple devices, and audio sharing to other AirPods. With them all, you basically get good > better > best sound quality – AirPods 2 are the cheapest, AirPods 3 sound notably better and have more features, and AirPods Pro sound better again, with even more features.

AirPods Max are over-ear wireless headphones, and are the best-sound and most expensive – by a long way, in both cases. They're among the best-sounding headphones we've ever tested, they're easy to use, and their noise cancellation can easily stand up to the likes of the Sony WH-1000XM4 and the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700. However, their high price, limitations for Android users, and lack of 3.5mm audio port means we'd only recommend them to iOS users with a lot of money to spare – and no interest in Hi-Res Audio.

Do you need Amazon Prime for Prime Day AirPods 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, you'll find free trial offers popping up during the event, so you can still take part without spending on a membership. 

However, last year we saw Amazon Prime Day AirPods deals exploding at other retailers as well, with price matching or even better deals in some places. We'll keep updating with more great deals as we find them!
