What are they?

Apple AirPods are the wireless alternative to headphones that pair easily with your Apple device without compromising sound quality or performance.

Your AirPods charging case holds multiple full charges for your earbuds and has more than 24 hours of battery life. Each charge delivers up to five hours of play time and three hours of talk time; when not in use, they should be kept in the charging case to ensure you never miss a call, a podcast or a song.

Since the AirPods are paired via Bluetooth to your iOS device (like your iPad, iPhone or MacBook) you’ll receive a push notification when your battery is running low. When your charging case battery pack is low, simply connect the case to a power source using the included Lightning cord.

What shoppers are saying

With a 4.7-star rating from more than 2,500 customer reviews, it’s safe to say that these wireless earbuds live up to the hype.

“Authentic Apple Product! Arrived fast and as advertised they are excellent! Pairs wonderfully with the iPhone sound quality is amazing. Battery life is really good and they are super compact, and the sound quality is just amazing as expected from Apple! Would recommend and purchase again,” reads one review.

“They are truly life changing. Sound quality is great and charging time is low. I used to think of AirPods as just another hype product from Apple but they really make phone calls significantly easier,” adds another.

While these AirPods are a great price, it’s important to keep in mind that they are one of Apple’s earlier generations. If having the latest version of the AirPods family is a top priority, then you’ll want to make sure to purchase the Apple AirPods Pro instead, which are currently on sale for $250.

Verdict

For those looking to stay on budget and still find top-quality sound, this deal on the Apple AirPods with Charging Case is almost too good to pass up. That said, this version doesn’t charge wirelessly like some of the newer models do, and offers just the basics for wireless listening.
