Amazon is currently offering the recently released AirPods 2.0 with Charging Case (Latest Model) for $139.99 ($19.01 off). Though this 12% discount might seem small, it’s quite a big deal given how well they’ve been selling.
These wireless headphones are Prime eligible, so you can enjoy free two-day shipping.
However, the popularity of this AirPods deal has emptied Amazon’s current stock. So the expected shipping date, as of publishing, ranges from May 15th to May 30th. But the wait may be worth it, as it’s rare for Apple to mark down a newly released product like this.
What’s New With AirPods 2?
Unlike the iPhone, we are fortunate that Apple has upgraded its AirPods without upgrading the price. Though the design hasn’t changed much, the tech inside is where all the action is at, with the two most significant advances revolving around Siri and the new H1 chip.
If Siri is an integral part of your life, you can now easily and swiftly summon the digital assistant by simply saying “Hey, Siri.” However, Apple still has some kinks to work out with Siri. For important tasks, you’ll likely want to stick with Google.
With the upgraded H1 chip, Apple has made it even faster for the earbuds to connect to (and switch between) different devices. Users will also enjoy a more stable connection and less lag from audio when gaming.
