If you are looking to pick up a set of Apple’s AirPods Pro, today might be a good day to break in. The latest version of the noise-cancelling wireless headphones, which arrived last September and includes a USB-C charging case, is back to $190 on Amazon and Best buy. We’ve seen this discount a few times over the past few months, but it’s still within a dollar of the lowest price we’ve tracked. For reference, Apple sells the pair for $249, though it’s regularly available for less at third-party retailers. Note that this offer may only be available for Thursday, as Best Buy lists it as a 24-hour “Deal of the day” and Amazon probably matches the prices.

We gave the second-generation AirPods Pro a score of 88 in September 2022. This review applies to the model with the Lightning charging case; this USB-C model is practically identical, only slightly better dustproof and technically supports lossless audio with Apple’s Vision Pro headphones. Otherwise, it continues to offer effective active noise cancellation (ANC), a stellar surround sound mode, and a pleasantly warm sound with slightly boosted bass. However, the biggest advantage is still how well it works with other Apple devices. With them you get a simpler pairing process, faster device switching, adaptive EQ, hands-free access to Siri, automatic ear detection, Find My spatial audio tracking and support. The couple’s settings menu and battery life indicator are also saved in iOS.

All of this makes the AirPods Pro the “best for iOS” pick in our wireless headphone buying guide, but you’ll need an iPhone to get the most out of them. Even then, their six-hour battery life is OK, their call quality could be better, and their touch controls can take some getting used to. The Beats Fit Pro offers a nearly similar set of features in a more workout-friendly design, while Sony’s WF-1000XM5 remain our favorite wireless headphones overall. It’s also worth noting that Apple may release new AirPods later this year, according to BloombergThis is Mark German, while those who just need the USB-C case can buy it separately. Still, if you’re a dedicated Apple user in need of a new pair of headphones today, this is a solid deal.
