SAVE $9.01: Normally $249, Amazon has the second-generation Apple AirPods Pro(opens in a new tab) on preorder for $239.99 as of Sept. 19. This is their first discount to date.
Mulling over the idea of pre-ordering the brand new Apple AirPods Pro 2(opens in a new tab)? Here’s something that might make it easier to press the “Place your order” button: Amazon has them on sale already.
As of Sept. 19, you can reserve a pair of those second-generation wireless earbuds through the site for $239.99. That’s about $9 off their suggested retail price of $249, which is their first-ever discount since debuting at this month’s “Far Out” iPhone 14 event. They should arrive on or around their Sept. 23 release date.
Everything Apple announced at the iPhone 14 event
The AirPods Pro 2 look mostly the same as their identically priced predecessors from 2019, though they do come with an additional ear tip size and a revamped charging case that can be located using Find My on an iPhone (a feature that now works with the original Pros as well). Their biggest upgrades are internal: You’ll be able to create personalized profiles for their spatial audio feature, scroll up and down their stems to adjust their volume, and use them with ANC enabled for up to 30 hours per charge. (That’s a six-hour increase from the previous generation.)
The AirPods Pro 2’s Active Noise Cancellation, Transparency mode, and overall sound quality have also been improved with the addition of the new H2 chip.
