At the risk of repeating myself, Apple’s AirPods Pro is a great product — but, oy, the price. It’s hard to justify paying $249 when there are so many genuinely good AirPods Pro alternatives priced less.
Right now, however, you can save a whopping $60 and score the best deal on record: For a limited time, and while supplies last (which probably won’t be long, alas), Woot has the Apple AirPods Pro for $189. Shipping is free for Amazon Prime subscribers, $6 for everyone else. Unlike a lot of Woot gear, this is a new product, not a refurb.
Next best price, if you’re wondering: $199 at Amazon. Might it dip even lower tomorrow when Prime Day officially begins? I wouldn’t rule it out, but I’d also be surprised to see it go below $189. A bird in the hand, as they say…
Even at $189, these are anything but cheap, but CNET’s AirPods Pro review explains why they might be worth the money. On the other hand, if it’s just certain features you want, be sure to check out these AirPods Pro alternatives that cost less. You can learn more about those options in a recent episode of The Cheapskate Show podcast, embedded below.
Meanwhile, there’s always the refurbished AirPods Pro option, which might be better than you think. (Of course, between $168 for refurbs and $189 for new, I’d definitely go with new.)
