The AirPods Pro are still on sale for only $220 at Verizon (discount applied at checkout), down a massive $30 from the usual $250 — the the latest in a string of early Memorial Day sales. You’ll need to act fast, though: After almost a week in the sale bin, Big Red must be running out of stock of the noise-canceling true wireless earbuds, so best start punching in your credit card right away if you don’t want to miss out on your chance to take them home on the cheap this side of Memorial Day.
So, how do the AirPods Pro differ from the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case? For starters, they’re a lot smaller and shorter. They’re also sweat-resistant, making them the ideal companion for a long workout, and are armed with Active Noise-Canceling (ANC). Plus, they come with interchangeable silicone ear tips that A) ensure the AirPods Pro stay fixed in the ear during intense exercise; B) make them more comfortable to wear for extended durations, and C) create a seal for ANC to work its magic.
Apple made a number of changes under the hood to improve the all-important sound quality as well, headlined by the addition of what it calls Adaptive EQ — a software tweak that tunes the low- and mid-frequencies of the music to the shape of the listener’s ear. It’s all of this combined that makes the AirPods Pro the most advanced AirPods the company has released to date. Pair this with the fact they’re only six months old and such a substantial discount is unprecedented, and we have an unmissable deal.
Not sold? Here’s what one customer had to say about their AirPods Pro:
They fit perfectly and work extremely well with the iPhone. I rarely have to charge them and the bluetooth rarely gives me any issues. The sound cancelation was great when I used them while cutting the grass.
