If you’re still on the fence about diving into the world of wireless Apple audio, then have we got a deal for you. 

As you might well know, Prime Day Apple deals are fast approaching. However, almost one full week out, we’re already tracking some of the best Prime Day AirPods deals we’ve ever seen. So if you’re in the market for your first pair of AirPods, a great gift for friends or family, or even an emergency spare pair, you can now score Apple’s entry-level AirPods 2 for basically half price. 

That’s right, you can get wireless Bluetooth earbuds, 24 hours of battery life, fast-pairing and seamless switching, and more for just $69.

Get a ridiculous $60 off and score AirPods 2 for less than $70, a week before Prime Day is due to begin. This is the best price we've ever seen on AirPods 2, the cheapest price for any in the lineup, and one we wouldn't expect to see beaten in the main event next week. 

Apple’s AirPods 2 might be a little older than AirPods 3, and they don’t boast the noise-canceling of AirPods Pro, but they’re also less than $70. For that price, you get the core experience of AirPods without some of the bells and whistles of AirPods Pro. As mentioned, they pair incredibly easily with any iPhone, iPad, Mac, or even Apple TV. If you’ve got multiple Apple devices you can switch audio inputs in a flash, and you can activate Siri with nothing but your voice while wearing them. 

The only reason you might pass on these is because you want to pay more for a more premium audio experience. If that’s the case, Apple’s AirPods 3 are also at an all-time low of $129 right now and offer considerably better audio performance and a sleeker design. If you really want noise-canceling, AirPods Pro 2 are currently just $169, another all-time low price. Basically, there has never been a better time to buy a pair of AirPods. Ever.
