As we end another crazy week, Amazon is slashing prices on its inventory of Apple AirPods and Powerbeats Pro headphones. The sale brings price tags to the lowest we have seen in a while, with a pair of AirPods selling for as low as $130.
Amazon is taking up to $30 off the latest generation of AirPods and is also discounting the AirPods Pro.
The best price is on the AirPods Pro, which is selling for just $235. Introduced last fall, the AirPods Pro improves upon the company’s popular AirPods lineup with a new in-ear design that fits more securely, active noise cancellation, and an adaptive equalizer that changes in response to your music. It’s a significant upgrade.

Powerbeats Pro on Sale
This end-of-the-week sale isn’t limited to just AirPods.

The Beats-branded Powerbeats get the most significant discount, up to $50 off at retailers such as Amazon and B&H Photo.
PowerBeats Pro vs. AirPods Pro vs. AirPods
Apple offers a variety of consumer and “Pro” branded headphones. You may be wondering which one is the right model for you.
For the consumer who wants a basic pair of earphones and doesn’t want to spend a fortune, then regular AirPods are the best choice. They integrate nicely with the iPhone and deliver quality sound. You can choose between the more expensive model with wireless charging or the base model that charges using a cable.
Moving up, you’ll find the Pro models: the AirPods Pro and the Powerbeats Pro. The Powerbeats and AirPods serve two different users. AirPods Pro are for the person who wants a high-tech pair of earbuds and doesn’t mind paying a little extra for features like noise cancellation and wireless charging.
PowerBeats Pro have over-the-ear hooks that secure the earbuds to your ears. They’re ideal for people who exercise vigorously and want to enjoy the moment without worrying about losing an earbud.
