The best AirPods deals 2020: cheapest US prices

Apple AirPods have proved to be insanely popular, following hot on the heels of the iPhone to be another Apple success story. Whether you're making voice calls, in a Zoom chat or just listening to music, AirPods will do the job. As a result, there's plenty of competition for your money - so it's worth shopping around to find the cheapest AirPods prices. And we'll be rounding up the best AirPods deals on this very page.

The Apple AirPods might just be the best wireless earbuds for iPhone users. They're stylish, lightweight and ultra-convenient, bringing Siri to life in your ears, as well as 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. The cheaper 2nd-gen AirPods were already technically and sonically superior to the original version. While if you're on a tight budget, you might want to opt for the 1st-gen AirPods launched back in 2016. 

To make it easy for you, we've searched far and wide to find the best deals and cheapest prices on the 1st-gen AirPods, AirPods 2 and AirPods Pro – and they are just a scroll and click away.

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 get the 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 check out Apple's pick of the Qi-certified wireless charging pads here. 

It's also worth nothing that the Wireless Charging Pad works with both the 1st-generation and 2nd-generation AirPods. 

Don't want to pay the recommended retail price? We've got the cheapest prices below, so get ready to scrimp and save.

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple's high-end 'buds seem 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 AirPods, but the Pros could be the only pair of in-ear headphones you ever need.
