All of the biggest discounts on the company's wireless earbuds and headphones.
By the time we get to Black Friday, which falls on Nov. 29 this year, Apple's popular AirPods will be facing much stiffer competition. Amazon's new Echo Buds ship later this month. Microsoft's new Surface Buds are already available. And the word is getting out about Sony's WH-1000XM3 -- our current favorites.
We probably won't see the next-generation AirPods with active noise cancellation, or Apple's rumored over-ear noise-canceling headphones, until 2020. But if you're set on picking up a pair of AirPods right now, here's the good news: The current-generation model has been selling at a discount for months. Plenty of retailers are selling the model with the wireless charging case for $169 and with the standard case for around $145. (Depending on your proximity to a Micro Center, you may be able to pick up the wireless version for $150 -- but in-store only, not online.)
Though it's hard to find brand-new first-gen AirPods at this point, there are other wireless headphones in Apple's portfolio available for under list price, too. The PowerBeats3 Wireless headphones cost $200 when you buy from Apple, but Walmart has them for $114. The $200 Beats Solo3 headphones are currently available at Rakuten for $150 (though you need to sign up for a free account first).
One thing to consider: Apple offers free custom engraving on all AirPods cases when you buy from it directly. You'll get no such offer from third-party retailers such as Amazon.
