Is it just me, or does it feel like everyone has a pair of AirPods? Your Zoom-obsessed boss? Your roommate? Even your tech-averse bestie? H0w about all of the above, and then some. In fact, if your loved ones don’t have Apple’s highly-coveted earbuds, it’s likely that they put some on their holiday wish list or are secretly hoping someone gets them a pair.
If you’ve previously been deterred by the high prices that come with Apple’s premium quality, you’ll be thrilled to hear that Amazon just dropped a sale on their bestselling AirPods ($100, Amazon). By taking nearly 40 percent or $60 off, the earbuds were once $160 but are now just $100. There’s never been a better time to snag a few pairs for your boyfriend, mom, and sister—I couldn’t think of a better way to earn yourself a top spot on Santa’s nice list.
In case you were still dubious, AirPods seriously live up to the hype—but, you don’t have to take my word for it. These bestselling wireless earbuds have earned a whopping 400,000 five-star reviews from happy customers (and listeners), and it’s no secret why. Not only do they sync up to any iPhone, iPad, or even Apple TV with ease, they even allow you to share songs with anybody wearing AirPods in close proximity. Plus, the earbuds fit like a glove (a lot of reviewers report forgetting they even have them on!) and have 24 hours of battery life. That combined with the fact that you’re even going to get a free charging case with this deal makes these perfect for your travel-obsessed friend.
Basically, these AirPods are worth every penny at full price, but the fact that they’re on sale for just $100 makes this one of the best tech deals of the season. Whether you’re looking to gift yourself a little something for all the hard work you’ve done this year (you’ve earned it!), or you have a few hard-to-gift people you need to knock off your holiday shopping list, this is a deal you won’t want to miss.
