AMAZON PRIME DAY AIRPODS DEALS TO WAIT FOR
Last year’s Prime Day sale included price cuts on a range of Apple products, including $65 off AirPods (2nd generation) with standard charging case. Since Amazon is one of the few retailers to offer regular discounts on Apple products, we can expect to see prices drop on other AirPods models this year as well.
While we expect the deals to be impressive, it’s worth noting that there are already some major price drops announced on the Amazon Australia site. You can check them out below.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AIRPODS MODELS
Over the years, Apple has since expanded its lineup to include several different AirPods models. Currently, you can choose between AirPods (2nd Gen) with a standard or wireless charging case, AirPods (3rd Gen), AirPods Pro, or AirPods Max.
AirPods (2nd generation) are the standard option in the lineup and arrive with a universal design, hands-free voice assistance from Siri, and a battery life of around five hours (or up to more than 24 hours with one or more). the other of the charging cases). A pair it with the standard charging case will typically set you back $219, while a pair with the wireless charging case (which can be charged with a compatible wireless charger) are priced at $319.
The AirPods (3rd generation) are a nice step up from the (2nd Gen) model, offering a streamlined design for a better fit, a wireless charging case, and six hours of battery life (or up to 30 hours with the charging case). The buds are priced at $279, making them even cheaper than the 2nd-gen model (with wireless charging case), so they’re well worth the upgrade.
The AirPods Pro are the premium in-ear headphones in Apple’s lineup and are usually priced at $399. The design features a shorter stem than the original AirPods and includes three flexible silicone tips for a more personalized fit. The Pros also feature active noise cancellation and a Transparency mode that lets you hear what’s going on around you.
The AirPods Max are the first over-ear headphones in the AirPods line and are currently among the best noise canceling headphones on the market. Similar to AirPods Pro, AirPods Max also has a Transparency mode, which lets you hear what’s going on around you. According to Apple, the pair also offers up to 20 hours of listening time on a single charge, making it a great travel companion.
