AirPods have proved to be insanely popular, following hot on the heels of the iPhone to be yet another Apple success story. Whether you're making voice calls, having a video meeting or just listening to music, AirPods will do a great job.
There are plenty of retailers competing for your money when it comes to finding the best AirPods deals, so it really is worth shopping around to find the cheapest prices. Or just let us do that hard work for you.
If you're an iPhone user, the Apple AirPods might just be the best wireless earbuds for you. They're stylish, lightweight and ultra-convenient, bringing Siri to life in your ears, as well as offering excellent hands-free calls from your iPhone.
The latest model is the AirPods Pro, which features active noise-cancelling and customised silicone tips for a snug fit. Meanwhile the cheaper 2nd-gen AirPods offer a leap in quality, especially for music, over the 1st-gen AirPods.
To make it easy for you, we've searched far and wide to find the best deals and cheapest prices on the AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro. And with the launch of the AirPods 3 and iPhone 12 getting closer, and Amazon Prime Day coming next month, soon to be followed by Black Friday and Cyber Monday, we will be keeping an extra close eye on the best deals.

Under review, we called the AirPods Pro "exceptionally comfortable" and praised their "strong noise-cancelling and balanced, easy-going sound". As well suited to a long-haul flight as they are to a run around the block, they could be the only pair of headphones you ever need.View Deal
Apple AirPods 2nd-generation
Looking for a pair of hassle-free true wireless earbuds? The Apple AirPods 2 sprinkle a little more pixie dust over proceedings, offering a great combination of performance, reliability and convenience. Walk into an Apple Store and you'll see two options: the AirPods with a Charging Case priced, and the model with the Wireless Charging Case.
Should you buy the Wireless Charging Case? It really depends on your budget. You can buy the Wireless Charging Case separately, but you'll get a better deal if you buy one bundled with a pair of AirPods 2. Just place your AirPods in the case and lay it on a Qi-certified wireless charging pad (sold separately). An LED indicator on the front of the case lets you know that your AirPods are charging. (If you're away from your charging pad, you can still use the Lightning port to charge the case.)
Sadly, Apple cancelled the launch of its 'AirPower' charging pad so you'll need to buy one from a third party brand, such as Belkin or Morphie. You can always check out Apple's pick of the Qi-certified wireless charging pads. It's also worth nothing that the Wireless Charging Pad works with both the 1st-generation and 2019 Apple AirPods.

Apple AirPods Pro
Apple's high-end 'buds are very impressive indeed. Their noise-cancelling tech features a 'Transparency' mode that actively allows sound in from the outside world, while the supplied silicone tips (you get three sizes) should ensure a better fit. Battery life is a claimed five hours for the earphones, with another 19 hours added by the charging case. They might be chunkier and costlier than the standard Apple AirPods (2019), but the Pros could be the only pair of in-ear headphones you ever need.
