Who said Apple gear never goes on sale? Apple's AirPods Pro are back down to their best Black Friday price – just $199 (opens in new tab) at Target. That's $50 off the usual retail price, and $35 cheaper than Best Buy's much-touted Apple four-day sale event (opens in new tab).
Amazon previously matched that price on Black Friday, but the e-tail giant is currently sold out. Target it is, then.

(opens in new tab)Under review, we called the AirPods Pro "exceptionally comfortable" and praised their "strong noise-cancelling and balanced, easy-going sound". They could be the only pair of headphones you ever need.
The AirPods Pro earbuds are a step up from the standard AirPods. You get noise-cancelling onboard, for blocking out background noise, and different sized ear tips for finding the perfect size. That was one of the main criticisms of the normal AirPods – their one size fit some people fine, but not others.
Those ear tips make the AirPods Pro comfortable enough to wear for hours, and provide a snug, secure fit. While they're not designed primarily for working out, they are equally at home during a run around the block as they are for calls and listening to music.
They sound better than the standard AirPods, too. Apple still favors a neutral tonal balance, rather than tipping the scales in the direction of bass, but that easygoing nature is especially good with lower-quality streams. They also have a spaciousness that's rare with in-ear headphones, which allows the instruments room to breathe.
But the midrange is the real highlight, with vocals reproduced with plenty of texture and detail. There's good sparkle to treble, too, but with no hint of brightness sneaking in. So, great wireless earbuds at a great price. Snap them up now.
