Today’s best AirPods and AirPods Pro deals
If we had to choose between AirPods Pro and AirPods 2019, we would choose AirPods Pro every time. That’s because they come with Active Noise Cancellation, Superior Sound, and Spatial Audio, which lets you hear immersive movie soundtracks and songs as if you’re right in the thick of the action. Moreover, the old AirPods have recently been usurped by the AirPods 3, which offer much improved audio performance compared to their predecessors.
However, the older 2019 AirPods are still worth considering if you’re on a budget. While they don’t sound as good as their noise-canceling siblings, they’re easy to use, offer great integration with the wider Apple ecosystem, and come with hands-free access to voice assistant Siri.
It’s worth bearing in mind that Apple is expected to release a new version of the AirPods Pro this year. The so-called AirPods Pro 2 are due out in the latter part of 2022 and could come with a range of upgrades, such as improved noise cancellation, fitness tracking features and a streamlined design.
That said, there’s no guarantee the AirPods Pro 2 will hit the shelves in 2022, as Apple hasn’t confirmed the rumors – so if you want a great pair of noise-canceling headphones at a discount, these deals are worth it to take advantage of it.
