If you need some wireless earbuds, Apple's AirPods are always worth considering. They're even more worth a look when they're on sale for under $100.

In our AirPods 2 review, we gave the buds four-stars for their overall solid tonal balance, excellent wireless tech, and robust iOS integration. Put simply, these are some impressive buds, especially for an Apple fan.

These official Apple earbuds come packed with near-flawless wireless technology and overall tonal balance and sonic sophistication. Plus, they pair seamlessly with Apple devices. AirPods are a reliable pick of earbuds, all told. 

Apple has been making AirPods for some time now, and they're always incredibly popular products. The second-generation AirPods are not just popular, but they also perform very well and sound great, so at under $100 they are certainly worth considering.

These earbuds come with Bluetooth 5.0 support, five hours of battery life and another 19 hours with the included charging case. They sport Apple's classic earbud design, unlike the noise-cancelling AirPods Pro with their more familiar look and feel. You can use these buds with non-Apple devices, of course, but they work most seamlessly with Apple products.

In terms of audio quality, the AirPods overall sound is natural and fairly neutral without any sense of artificial bass boosting or treble enhancement. These buds in particular have a great tonal balance and sonic sophistication to them, too, making for a pleasant, engaging listening experience for just about anybody.

All around, the second-generation AirPods are capable earbuds. At under $100, these earbuds are also a good value, so if you've got an Apple device and are looking for a pair on a budget, this Walmart deal is worth snapping up.
