Amazon Prime Day deals this year gave us some fantastic Apple AirPods offers, with the lowest price we've ever seen for the AirPods Pro – but now that Prime Day is over, those deals have sold out.

There's no need to despair, though – there are plenty of brilliant AirPods-alternatives out there, many of which offer better sound quality, cooler designs, and superior connectivity to Apple's earbuds.  

That's why we've rounded up the best true wireless earbuds deals we've found over Prime Day in the US – and these are all still available even though the sales event has finished for another year. (Not in the US? Scroll down for the best deals in your region.) 

If any of these wireless earbuds deals take your fancy, you'll have to act fast – models like the Sony WF-1000XM3 are likely to sell out quickly, and many of these models will increase in price now that Prime Day is over.

JBL Tune 120TWS:  $99.95 $54.95 at Amazon
Having dropped to $39.95 over Prime Day, the JBL Tune 120TWS have crept back up to $54.95 – but that's still a good deal. Coming in a range of colors, these buds offer four hours of battery life from the buds themselves, with a further 12 hours from the charging  case, 5.8mm drivers for a bassy sound, and a slick design. They've since crept back up to 


Powerbeats Pro true wireless earbuds:  $249.99 $166.20 at Amazon
The Powerbeats Pro are even cheaper, having initially dropped to $174.95. That first discount already beat the lowest price we've seen on these fitness-inspired true wireless earbuds, and this further discount makes it the cheapest the Beats buds have ever been. Fantastic comfort and an ear grip design ensures your buds will never slip out during even the most intense of workouts.


Sony WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds: $229.99 $178 at Amazon
Save $50 on one of the most popular premium wireless earbuds today at Amazon. Featuring industry-leading noise cancellation and fantastic battery life, the Sony WF-1000XM3 have consistently ranked as TechRadar's favorite pair of wireless earbuds. Subsequently, they're a great buy but act quickly if you want to grab them at their lowest price.

Sony WF-SP800N true wireless earbuds: $199.99 $148 at Amazon

Jabra Elite 65t: $139.99 $99.99 at Amazon

Jabra Elite 65t: $139.99 $99.99 at Amazon
With $40 off, you can get these brilliant true wireless earbuds for under $100. Their balanced sound and sophisticated design makes them a good choice for anyone who doesn't want to follow the Apple AirPods crowd. You can also get your hands on this deal at Best Buy.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus: $149 $119.99 at Amazon

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus: $149 $119.99 at Amazon
Amazon has knocked $30 off the price of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus for Prime Day, and while it's not the lowest price we've ever seen, it's still a good deal. These earbuds come with a dual-driver design, and 11-hour built-in battery life, and are compatible with iOS as well as Android.

The deal we're most excited about here has to be the Sony WF-1000XM3 – not only are they the best true wireless earbuds you can buy in 2020, but this Prime Day deal sees them hit their lowest-ever price. 

Combining best-in-class noise cancellation with fist-pumping musicality, the XM3s are easily the best-sounding earbuds you can buy right now – and in our opinion, they sound far better than the AirPods and the AirPods Pro. 

They come with 24 hours of battery life (that's including the charging case), while support for Alexa means you can summon your device's voice assistant with a single touch.
