Amazon’s fall Prime Day — Prime Big Deal Days — ends tonight, but the retailer is still offering plenty of Prime member-exclusive discounts on tech, fitness gear, home and kitchen gadgets and more.
If you’re looking to upgrade your headphones, Amazon is discounting a few models of AirPods during the 48-hour sale event. AirPods Pro, which are some of the best wireless earbuds and a Select Wellness Award winner, are on sale now at their lowest price ever, though the Lightning version is currently sold out.
To evaluate the quality of these deals, we ran each of them through price trackers like CamelCamelCamel to ensure it’s either at its lowest price ever or its lowest price in at least three months. We’ll continue updating our list with new deals throughout the event. We also compiled a list of Prime Day bestsellers so far, so you can see what other Select readers are shopping for. Be sure to shop now because Prime Day deals are over after today.
Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Gen, USB-C)
4.8-star average rating from 112 reviews on Amazon
Lowest price ever
AirPods Pro are some of the best wireless earbuds on the market. Multiple Select staff members use these earbuds daily for commuting, making calls and listening to music while working out. In our experience, they have crisp sounds and excellent noise-canceling features.These second-generation models come with multiple ear tips in the box, a lanyard loop on the charging case and touch-sensitive volume controls on the earbuds for easy adjusting. This version has a USB-C port for charging instead of a Lightning port.
Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)
4.7-star average rating from 593,101 reviews on Amazon
These second-generation AirPods are a popular wireless earbud option and are much lower-priced than the brand’s newer 3rd generation AirPods or Airpods Pro. They work best with other Apple products — they pair and sync more easily with iPhones and MacBooks than other earbuds, in our experience. They also have a five-hour battery life on their own, but the charging case can boost the total battery life to over 24 hours, according to Apple. Unlike AirPods Pro or Pro Max, these do not have automated noise cancellation or interchangeable silicone ear tips.
Apple AirPods Max Wireless Over-Ear Headphones
4.6-star average rating from 13,160 reviews on Amazon
These rarely-on-sale over-ear headphones are a favorite of many Select staff members. They have active noise cancellation, transparency mode (so you can hear outside noises, if wanted) and spatial audio so you can have theater-like sound quality, according the brand. The earcup cushions are made of memory foam and the headband is made of a knit-mesh. They’re currently available in five colors. (Note: They are not at their lowest price in three months, however they are rarely on sale so we included them.)

This wireless charger can charge your Apple Watch and AirPods (or an iPhone) at the same time. It is compact, lightweight and folds in half, which makes it ideal for travel. The charger comes with a USB-C to lightning cable, but you have to purchase a power adapter separately.
Apple 96W USB-C Power Adapter
4.8-star average rating from 1,936 reviews on Amazon
Lowest price ever
If this charger looks familiar, here’s why: it typically comes with new MacBook Pro purchases. It has an output of 96W, meaning it can power almost all of Apple’s laptops, tablets, headphones and phones. The prongs flip into the brick, making it easier to travel with than other bulkier chargers.
