Not only AirPods Pro are on offer this weekend. Amazon is also selling the current generation AirPods with wired charging case for just $ 100 after a checkout discount – much less than the official $ 159. You can also snap the earbuds with a wireless charging case for $ 150 (was $ 199) if you can’t stand cables.

The regular AirPods are still considered the “standard” for true wireless earbuds, and for good reason. While the sound is unspectacular, they are easy to use, reliable, and offer solid battery life for commuting (now that they are back to being a thing) and video calling. Although they work with Android, the experience is practically seamless when using Apple devices.
Of course, you have to dampen your expectations. Audio quality and Apple-centric support aside, the entry-level AirPods don’t fit as well as the Pro or boast of their workout-ready water resistance. You should go elsewhere if you want your buds to run in the rain or to take calls. For this price, however, the equipment easily meets expectations.
