AirPods Pro deals are more in demand than ever, thanks to the 2nd generation AirPods Pro 2. The earbuds are high are in demand but come with a steep price tag, which is why I'm rounding up all the best AirPods Pro deals around the web.

While the 2019 first-generation AirPods Pro are no longer available to purchase from the Apple store, you can sometimes find the earbuds on sale at third-party retailers. The original AirPods Pro now come with a Magsafe Charging Case, which provides more than 24 hours of total listening time and can be charged using a Qi-compatible charging mat or a Lightning connector.

In 2022, the long-awaited AirPods Pro 2 were launched with a starting price of $249 / £249 / AU$399.  The earbuds include enhanced noise cancellation and overall sound quality thanks to Apple's new H2 chip. At the 2023 Apple September event, the AirPods Pro 2 received an upgrade and now come with a USB-C charging case, so you don't have to rely on a Lightning cable, plus additional dust resistance and Lossless Audio with Apple Vision Pro.

If you're looking to spend less than that, we'd recommend pointing you toward older second-generation or third-generation AirPods. While you might be limited to renewed options, there are even more discounts to be found here. 

You'll find today's best AirPods Pro deals below, comparing prices from the top retailers online so you can find the lowest price available.

Is the AirPods Pro price worth it?

Even with all the AirPods Pro deals available, the cost of Apple's premium true wireless earbuds is still considerably higher than the standard 2019 generation. However, there are several features and quality of life enhancements that make the AirPods Pro price worth it if you're looking for a more luxurious experience. 

The buds have been completely redesigned, with Apple taking consumer frustrations over the fit of previous generations to heart and building their latest model to not only house all its tech in an ear-friendly shell but also remain flexible in its size. Three tips offer different-sized buds, while internal microphones measure the audio being received by your ear to let you know if you've selected the correct fit. 

The AirPods Pro price also reflects the new Transparency Mode, which allows certain sounds to break through noise cancellation when required. Plus, intelligent, active sound monitoring is achieved through an internal and external microphone adjusting your noise cancellation 200 times per minute. 

The biggest improvements over the previous AirPods lie in this noise cancelation and improved fit. Apple has also spent time in the sound quality department, however. While the audio quality has undoubtedly been improved thanks to custom low-distortion drivers and high dynamic range amplifiers, it's the new Adaptive EQ feature that will boost your music's quality the most. This nifty little piece of tech molds the sound of your tunes to you, tuning low and mid frequencies to the shape of your own ear to boost the quality and richness of the audio on offer. 

If all of that doesn't sound like it appeals, why not check out cheaper AirPods prices in the comparison table below.
