Time is running out to take advantage of these discounted Apple AirPods Cyber Monday deals. If you act now, you can save money on all three 2019 variants: the regular AirPods with either a standard or wireless charging case as well as the newly-released AirPods Pro.
These are the best bargains of the year, but prices will surely go back up - and fast. As our general roundup of Cyber Monday deals is revealing, though, there might be enough time to still enjoy the biggest sales of the year.
But you'd better hurry: we've lots of stores and online offers sell out of AirPods completely, so these low prices could go back up at any time. This really is the best time of year to get a great deal on Apple's super-popular wireless earphones.
Prices have never been lower on these popular in-ear headphones thanks to the current sales season. Most of the time Apple AirPods aren't cheap, but our price comparison technology paired with our eagle-eyed deal hunters means you're in the right place to find the best prices in the US, UK and Australia between now and the last breath of Cyber Monday.
What should you expect to spend? Well, we'd be surprised if prices get much lower than these Cyber Monday AirPods deals - they've been that good and aren't likely to get any better. The AirPods Pro have seen Amazon knock $15 off a few times in the US, and some Aussie retailers have been a bit more aggressive, taking up to AU$50 off the local RRP.

Deals you missed
DEAL OVER - Apple AirPods Pro |
$249 $234.99 at Amazon
Amazon has the cheapest price in the land for the brand new AirPods Pro and this is a red hot deal. Stock keeps going in and out, but you can still order them at this fantastic price even if you might have a wait a while for delivery - for what it's worth we don't see stock taking that long to arrive at all. (This deal is back to its original price.)
OUT OF STOCK - Apple AirPods (2019) with charging case: AU$199 (was AU$249; save AU$50)
For a very limited time, Amazon has taken AU$50 off the popular AirPods, a rare 20% discount from the Apple brand. With that said, these are likely to sell out fast, so if you’re interested in a stylish pair of true wireless earbuds, don’t delay.
CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE - Apple AirPods (2019) with wireless charging case: AU$239 at Amazon
Amazon has also discounted the AirPods that include a wireless charging case, bringing them down to a slightly more affordable AU$239. You’d be hard-pressed to find 20% off the latest generation of AirPods, especially with a wireless charging case included, so don’t miss the chance to snap these up for less.
So naturally, the standard case model is cheaper, but if you have a wireless Qi- charger at home already (or have one on your shopping list) then we'd certainly opt for the wireless case option for added convenience.
The brand new Apple AirPods Pro are out now and already selling out at many of the big-brand US retailers.
With a launch price of $249 / £249 AU$399 we're certainly wincing a little, and we're hoping for something better come Cyber Monday. And if rival devices like Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds go on sale, then Apple might not want to risk losing out any more ground to Sony.
We have seen Amazon knock $15 off the price already a few times and some choice cuts in Australia, so maybe a Cyber Monday AirPods Pro deal around the world isn't totally off the table.
Should I expect better AirPods Cyber Monday prices?
Cyber Monday and Black Friday are certainly the hottest times of the year for potential discounts and this could be the best year for AirPods yet.
We're super excited because we've seen some massive discounts already this year on our ever-vigilant AirPods prices page. We've come a long way from the original version of the AirPods, which were in such high demand constantly since release, when an older Black Friday rolled into town the biggest discount we saw was a measly $7, and it was easily one of the most clicked deals on our site in our Black Friday deals roundups and deal news posts. This year has been significantly better so far though.
Will the older, original AirPods be a better deal?
The original 2016 Apple AirPods have been discontinued a while ago by Apple and we rarely see them pop up at retailers. If they do, they're for refurbished or used models. Seeing as the newer AirPods launched in March this year at the same price, need for the older-gen models vanished overnight.
You'd certainly be forgiven for not being able to tell the two apart. Have a quick look at the specs though and you should see mentions of a new H1 chip, hands-free Siri interactions and 50% more talk time as these are all new features. If you buy AirPods with the wireless charging case, they will be the 2019 versions.
What about the AirPods Pro?
Yes, the brand new AirPods Pro are officially here after a sudden announcement from Apple at the end of October.
Noise-canceling is the big new feature that we're most excited to see (and hear!). Proper sweat and water resistance make them much better suited to hitting the gym or being out in light rain too - just don't get them absolutely soaked and you should be fine.
It's not all about AirPods though
It won't just be AirPods getting some of the best discounts of the year. There will be blockbuster deals on a huge range of tech and countless other items besides.
Be sure to check out our extensive coverage of Walmart Cyber Monday deals - hot tip, Walmart has been knocking Apple deals out of the park all year and is set to offer great deals on the AirPods too. Naturally, Amazon will try and price match while coming up with its own epic deals too, which you'll find rounded up on our Amazon Cyber Monday roundup.
We'll certainly be keeping an eye on other top products from the Cupertino-based company over on our Cyber Monday Apple Watch deals page.
