Apple's AirPods go down to their lowest price in quite some time

Faced with a wave of increasingly affordable, sleek, and feature-packed contenders from around a million different companies, Apple's industry-leading AirPods are almost never sold at their "regular" prices by most major US retailers nowadays.
We're talking about the entire 2019-released lineup, which is likely to be upgraded at last sometime this year. Until then, the entry-level AirPods 2 are on sale right now for 25 percent off their $159 list price, representing the highest discount available on these bad boys for the past few months and reminding us of AirPods Prime deals.
While the hot new Amazon deal doesn't quite match what the e-commerce giant offered for Black Friday and Cyber Monday in terms of second-gen AirPods savings, something tells us you're unlikely to be able to save more than 39 bucks anytime soon. We also expect the cheapest Apple H1-powered true wireless earbuds to go back up to a $129 or even higher price in a matter of days (tops), at least if the wired charging case-included AirPods will not go entirely out of stock.
Either way, it might be a good idea to hurry and pull the trigger as soon as possible... unless, of course, you'd rather pay extra for a wireless charging case or state-of-the-art active noise cancellation technology. The non-Pro second-gen AirPods with a wireless charging case bundled in have been available for $39.02 off their $199 regular price on and off for many months now, while the most advanced member of the world's best-selling family of true wireless earbuds can be had at $49.01 less than its $249 MSRP.
If you want to save a little more money, you can always opt for renewed units backed by a 90-day warranty, which Amazon currently sells at up to $25 additional discounts. That's... not exactly irresistible, but at the same time, it's still hard to find an objectively better product than either the "standard" AirPods or AirPods Pro at a comparable price.
These puppies sound awesome, look... okay, and they keep the tunes going for a fairly long time between charges, not to mention the ANC functionality on the AirPods Pro is still second to none.
