Apple makes some of the best wireless earbuds we’ve seen, and it’s very rare to see them on sale — just check out these AirPods deals — which is why you’ll want to rush to score a pair of these second-generation Apple Airpods, with charging case, that are at Staples. Right now, they’re down to $139 from their regular price of $159. It’s not often that we see premium Apple products offered at a discount, so you should take advantage while you can.
When Apple moved from its first to second generation AirPods, they took a leap, not just a step. First, there’s the performance: the brand replaced the W1 chip with the new H1, for faster connection times. Then there’s the functionality of the design: You no longer have to tap the Airpods twice to activate Siri; you can just say “Hey Siri.” These Airpods 2 come with a charging case that can help save battery and charge your Airpods on the go.
While these definitely don’t have the active noise cancellation of the Airpods Pro, we’ve found there’s still some decent ambient noise-canceling capabilities in their everyday use. And there’s Apple’s legendary design in both the Airpods form and function (these look sleek as can be, and handsome, and at the same time they turn on and off automatically when you place them in your ears or remove them; no fuss no muss). And the mics are sensitive and well placed, to ensure accuracy and seamlessness on calls.
But perhaps most importantly, these Airpods offer incredible sound quality. It’s among the best available, with crisp notes, accurate pickup, and impressively deep bass. Needless to say, it connects seamlessly to all your Apple devices, and there’s Apple’s legendary level of support as well. All this performance must put a terrible strain in the battery, right? Not at all. These Airpods boast more than 24 hours of battery life with the charging case. On top of that, you can enjoy 5 hours of listening time on a single full charge. And if your Airpods are running low, just put them in the case for 15 minutes and get 3 whole hours more listening and talk time.
It’s rare to see any discounts at all on Apple products, so whileisn’t going to break any records in the discount department, it’s still a great reason to jump on this opportunity to score Apple Airpods on sale. Right now, at Staples, they’re only $139, down from their regular price of $159 — that’s more than 10% off!
