Cyber Monday AirPods deals mean you still have plenty of opportunities to nab a great discount on Apple's range of best-selling earbuds and over-ear headphones. It may be the last day of the world's biggest sales event, but there are still plenty of brilliant Cyber Monday deals to be had before Amazon, Walmart, and company shut up shop (from a price cut perspective, anyway).

That includes some decent savings on Apple's AirPods, AirPods Pro, AirPods Max, and AirPods 2. Some of those include a pair of the brand-new AirPods Pro 2 for $50 off at Amazon (opens in new tab), the AirPods 2nd-gen for just $89 at Amazon (opens in new tab) (at their lowest-ever price), and the AirPods Max for only $100 at Amazon (opens in new tab).

If these headphones have their price slashed somewhere, you'll know about it in this guide. Below, we've rounded up the best Cyber Monday AirPods deals around. We're updating this page throughout the day, so check back with us regularly for more of the best Cyber Monday AirPods deals as they drop. 

Be sure to read our Cyber Monday Apple deals as well for all the latest savings across Apple's product line.

The best Cyber Monday AirPods deals

Apple AirPods Pro 2: was $249 now $199.99 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Apple's latest and greatest earbuds have been cheaper – they received a $25 dollar discount in October – but this is nonetheless a great deal on some of the best earbuds around. We raved about the noise cancellation and sound quality in our review (opens in new tab), and the longer battery life and upgraded Find My support are both excellent, too – and they're still light and comfortable.

Apple AirPods Pro (1st Gen): was $169.99 now $159 at Walmart (opens in new tab)
This Cyber Monday deal is a return to the lowest price we've ever seen for the AirPods Pro, which offer solid noise cancellation, adjustable silicone ear tips, and a handy charging case. The second-generation AirPods launched earlier this year with a number of upgrades, but they're almost $100 more expensive, so this is a more affordable way to get some of Apple's premium earbuds.

Apple AirPods 3rd Gen with MagSafe Case: was $169.98 now $139.98 at Sam's Club (opens in new tab)
This is the cheapest we've ever seen the 3rd-gen AirPods. The latest non-Pro AirPods give you improved sound over the classic AirPods 2nd Gen, plus Spatial Audio, which is wonderful with movies especially. You don't get the in-ear fit or noise cancellations that you get from the Pros, but not everyone wants that anyway.

AirPods Max: was $549 now $449 at Amazon (opens in new tab)
Apple's over-ear headphones are an audio tour de force, delivering huge sound that's natural and all-encompassing, thanks partly to the highly effective noise cancellation. This is a solid discount, though not spectacular – on very rare occasions, they've dropped as low as $349, but they won't receive such a discount before Cyber Monday ends.

Should you wait until Cyber Monday to buy AirPods?

Though a lot of Cyber Monday Apple AirPods deals are the same as their Black Friday counterparts, we had hoped for a few Cyber Monday exclusive deals from a bunch of retailers. However, that hasn't been the case, with all of the above offers staying the same over the whole of Black Friday weekend.

As such, you won't find any better savings than the ones currently available. That's a shame, too – we'd expected to see further reductions on some of the best-selling headphones around. But, considering their products sell so well throughout the year, Apple doesn't see the need to drastically slash the price of its AirPods and other headphone offerings.

Still, the deals that are available are worth considering, especially if you're in the market for a new pair of earbuds or over-ear cans.

When will the best Cyber Monday Apple AirPods deals start in 2022?

Cyber Monday is on November 28 this year, though there are still excellent AirPods deals running from Black Friday. We're not sure you'll see many better deals than have already happened, but there might be some final drops.

Keep an eye on this page, as we'll be updating it regularly with the newest and best deals as we discover them.

3 tips for buying Apple AirPods on Cyber Monday

1. Find the best AirPods for you first

Since Apple offers a wide range of its popular AirPods these days, it's easy to become confused over the many choices on offer. Do you need wireless charging, or is wired OK? What's the difference between regular AirPods and the AirPods Pro? And do you really need the extra features of the AirPods Max? To help you decide which AirPods are the ones for you, take a look at our guide of the best AirPods.

2. Set your budget ahead of the big day

Once you've figured out which AirPods are the perfect ones for you, you should set yourself a maximum budget ahead of Cyber Monday so you know what your limits are. Setting a realistic budget will mean making a final decision is easier - it also means that deals are even better if they're below your maximum budget.

3. Shop around before you make your decision

Cyber Monday always has great AirPods deals but it's certainly worth checking out your options before you pull the trigger. If you've found a deal you like the look of, it's a good idea to check several other retailers' sites before you commit, in case you can save a little bit extra. What's more, always make sure that the retailer you're planning on buying from is genuine and trustworthy, in the event that you need aftercare if a problem develops in the future.
