I have to admit, I used to be a total Apple AirPods hater. Like, why TF would I drop $150 on headphones that play music from my phone via Bluetooth when my Wired Earbuds work just fine, right? Wrong… very, very wrong! I have since been converted to an AirPods stan, and I truly don’t plan on stepping outside the door without them anytime soon.
If you, too, have struggled to come to terms with the full price of these wireless headphones (or just need a new pair), congrats because you’ve come to the right corner of the internet. I’ve rounded up the best Apple AirPods deals to shop right now—from basic 2nd Generation AirPods and 3rd Generation AirPods to the latest AirPods Pros and even the internet-famous AirPods Max headphones.
So which pair should you add to your cart? Well, it all depends on what you’re looking for! If you just want the convenience of exercising and running errands without getting your headphones all tangled up, I’d go with the most affordable option, aka the 2nd Generation AirPods. Reebelo has the best deal atm, but there’s a catch—they’re refurbished. This means that every pair has had more than 70 quality checks before they’re even shipped to ensure they’re in perfect working condition. Plus, there’s a 30-day money-back guarantee if you don’t vibe with your purchase. But, if you’re the type of person who wants that new new, Amazon is your next best second option with brand new AirPods coming in at just $99.

Your next cheapest option, 3rd Generation AirPods, are sweat- and
water-resistant. They’ve also got better sound quality and six more hours of listening time than the 2nd Generation AirPods.
If you want to be able to wear your headphones all day long without experiencing any discomfort, consider the AirPods Pro—they feature the same great sound quality and battery life as the previous model, as well as noise transparency technology and padded silicone earbuds.
Finally, if ya really want to splurge on comfy AirPods that double up as a fashion accessory, get the AirPods Max. They’re available in four gorgeous colorways, plus they offer 20 (yes, 20!) hours of listening time.
Whether you’re upgrading your headphones, replacing a pair you lost, or trying them for the first time, these Apple AirPods sales are too good to pass up. Like I (and so many other Apple AirPods skeptics who didn’t initially understand the hype) said, I am convinced that these are everyday essentials. I literally never leave my apartment without them. Even when I lost mine in an Uber last year, I hopped on Amazon Prime and ordered a new pair a few hours later. *Cries in poor.*
So, because they are, in fact, a necessary expense, I’ll continue to update this list with the best Apple AirPods deals to shop in 2023 (you’re welcome). Watch this space for all the deals you won’t wanna miss from Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and beyond!
