Apple's best headphones don't tend to go for cheap, but this Amazon Prime Day seems to be the ideal time to pick them up as the AirPods Pro 2 with a Lightning connection have just hit their lowest price ever.
The AirPods Pro 2 are available for $189 on Amazon, which is a 24% discount from $249. That's the lowest price they've ever been since their release in 2022.
I wouldn't delay if you're considering buying a pair as with the new USB-C version being released in September, there isn't a lot of stock circulating anymore so there's no guarantee that we'll see similar price drops come Black Friday.
Apple AirPods Pro 2: was
$249 now $189 at Amazon
After sitting at $219 for the last month, Amazon now has the best-selling AirPods Pro 2 down to a record-low price of $189. Their previous lowest price was $199. Rated as one of the best earbuds you can buy, the AirPods Pro 2 feature active noise cancellation to block out unwanted noise, improved audio quality, and a wireless charging case that provides more than 24 hours of battery life.
In the run up to today's big sales event, I had written that Amazon Prime Day is a great time to buy AirPods and it looks like that could definitely be the case with this deal for the Lightning version.
As I mentioned before, another reason why it's a great time to bag a bargain is that we may not see another big discount on this model – if you were thinking of holding out till later in the year, there's no guarantee of seeing this kind of price cut.
The AirPods Pro 2 recently got a big software upgrade that applies to this model too, and it makes them a lot smarter. A lot of their best features, such as ANC, have been improved by machine learning, with a new Adaptive Transparency, Conversation Awareness and Personalized Volume modes.
With the holidays season creeping up, this price drop should be the reason why you pick up a pair of the best AirPods you can buy today if you're in the market for some. Whether they're for you or someone else, you won't be disappointed with this buy.
