Best AirPods deal

Apple AirPods:  £120

Apple AirPods: £120 £99 at Amazon (save £20)
The second-gen AirPods offer up a superb wireless experience for Apple product users. They sound very decent, fit comfortably (for most), and bring solid improvements over the first-gen model.
Also available at John Lewis and Argos.

Apple's AirPods hardly need any introduction – we've been used to seeing them poking out of people's ears everywhere we've gone for years now. So if you're after a cheap (or even backup) pair, now's a good time to buy before they inevitably lose the discount in the build up to Amazon Prime Day.

This AirPods deal is on the second-gen model as opposed to the newer AirPods 3 (£159), but despite no longer being the latest and greatest standard AirPods, they still remain an excellent buy if you'd rather save money and grab a bargain over getting the spatial audio support, a little extra sound quality and slightly more battery life offered by the pricier new AirPods.

We gave the second-gen Apple wireless earbuds four stars in our AirPods (2019) review, complimenting their agreeable sound and their faultless wireless tech for iOS users. While recognising that they aren't the very best wireless earbuds around for sound quality, we really liked them at their original £159 price. Now that they're much less nowadays – and especially with this AirPods deal – they're highly recommended for iOS users in the market for a pair of ultra-portable headphones.
