Black Friday AirPods deals: early offers live now with record low prices

Asia's Tech News Daily

Black Friday AirPods deals have just hit at Amazon, and we’re seeing some brand new record low prices on the latest models on the shelves right now. We’d recommend you jump on these offers sooner rather than later, though, because both the AirPods Pro and the AirPods 3 ran out of stock particularly quickly last time we saw discounts entering this range.

Amazon has just dropped the AirPods Pro down to $159 (was $249) in its latest early Black Friday AirPods deals. That’s a $90 discount, and the lowest price we’ve ever seen not only on the new MagSafe version, but on the previous iteration as well. Meanwhile, this $25 discount on the AirPods 3 first appeared in Monday’s early Black Friday AirPods deals, but quickly sold out shortly afterwards. However, you’ll find the same $154.99 sales price (was $179.99) up for grabs today – but you’ll need to move quickly as this may well fly off the shelves once again. 

Over in the UK we’re seeing a brand new record low on the latest MagSafe charging AirPods Pro (now £185, was £249) at Amazon – that’s an additional £4 off the £189 position these buds hit at the start of this week’s Black Friday AirPods deals. Again, we wouldn’t recommend hanging around too long on this offer, as any time we see new record discounts on these premium buds they tend to sell out quickly.

You’ll find all the latest early Black Friday AirPods deals just below, with a selection of predictions and expectations further down the page if you’re concerned about jumping in too soon.

Apple AirPods Pro | $249 $159.99 at Amazon Save $90 – Amazon just dropped the price of the new MagSafe AirPods Pro down to a stunning $159.99. That’s a lower price than the previous generation ever reached, but you’ll have to be quick – this offer may well run out shortly.

Apple AirPods 3 | $179.99 $154.99 at Amazon Save $25 – This was the first major discount on the AirPods 3 in this year’s Black Friday AirPods deals, but it sold out quickly. We’re expecting the same $25 discount to appear later on during the sales though, so stay tuned.

AirPods second generation (2019) | $159 $109 at Amazon Save $50 – Amazon was previously offering a record low $89 sales price on the second generation AirPods, but that quickly bounced back up to $119 before trickling down to this $109 position. We’d recommend sitting tight on this offer, then, and keeping a close eye on upcoming discounts – it’s likely this isn’t the last we’ve seen of that $89 price point.

AirPods second generation (2019) with wireless charging case | $199 $149.99 at Amazon Save $49 – This $49 discount offers an additional $10 off the savings we’ve been seeing over the last few months. We have, however, still seen the wireless charging second generation buds available for $20 less before, so this might be one to watch out for over the next couple of days.

AirPods Max | $549 $439.99 at Amazon Save $109 – The AirPods Max aren’t quite at their lowest all time price today, but sitting just $10 off it is still an excellent offer. These luxury headphones have been stuck between $450 and $500 over the last few months, so you’re getting a solid discount at $109 off.

AirPods second generation (2019) | £119 £99 at Amazon Save £20 – This is a brand new record price low on the previous generation AirPods. Amazon has dropped us down as low as £106 before, but considering shipping here is free we’ve never seen a better offer. You might have to move fast, though, because when early Black Friday AirPods deals like this drop they tend to run off the shelves pretty quickly.

AirPods second generation wireless charging (2019) | 5 months Apple Music, Arcade & News+ | £168 £149 at Currys Save £19 – Stock of the wireless charging version of the second generation AirPods has been difficult to come by recently. However, Currys is offering one of the better prices we’ve seen all year on this model – and you can pick up up to five months of Apple services for free. If you’re keen to test out some additional subscriptions, then, this is excellent value.

Apple AirPods Pro | £239 £185 at Amazon Save £40 – This is a brand new record low on the AirPods Pro, beating the £189 price we saw just yesterday by an additional £4. That means the latest MagSafe charging buds have never been cheaper, excellent news if you’re looking to upgrade.

Black Friday AirPods deals: FAQs

When will Black Friday AirPods deals start?

Black Friday officially lands on November 26 in 2021. Recent years have seen those discounts arriving earlier and earlier though. Last year, for example, retailers were launching early Black Friday deals as soon as October. 

This year, we’d recommend keeping a close eye on AirPods deals as early as possible. With the launch of the AirPods 3, we may well see retailers offering incredibly low prices on the previous generation in order to shift stock ahead of the new model. 

Watch out for AirPods deals over the next couple of weeks, then, because – as we’ve seen this previous devices, older stock won’t be guaranteed for official Black Friday AirPods deals. 

Where will the best Black Friday AirPods deals be?

We’ll be bringing you all the best Black Friday AirPods deals as soon as the sale kicks off right here. However, if you’re going it alone it’s worth keeping these retailers in your back pocket. These stores have been offering the best prices on Apple’s luxury buds for the last few years now, and should definitely be a starting point. 

US: 

Amazon: Regularly has the lowest prices around B&H Photo: Often price matches during sales events Newegg: Flash sales can offer record breaking discounts Verizon: Fewer discounts but excellent prices during sales Walmart: Matches Amazon’s record low prices

UK:

Amazon:

Usually has the best prices on Apple devices Argos: Same day delivery available Currys: Great prices and extra subscription trials included free Laptops Direct: Often has the best prices around but £5 shipping Very: Regularly price matches record lows

How to find the best Black Friday AirPods deals

We’ve been tracking Black Friday AirPods deals for a few years now, which means we’ve picked up some handy tricks to getting the very best offers along the way. Of course, we’ll be rounding up all the biggest discounts right here, but if you’re looking for some solo deal hunting tips, you’ll find our top three just below.

1. Know what you want to buy

Knowing which model of AirPods you’ll be shopping for this November means you can head straight into the sales and find the lowest price without wasting too much time comparing specs. Of course, it’s always important to stay flexible – if a more expensive model has taken a huge price cut, it may well be the better value option. 

You’re deciding between the second generation AirPods with a standard charging case, a wireless charging version, the AirPods Pro and the AirPods Max. However, this year, the AirPods 3 may come along to disrupt that hierarchy. It’s worth keeping a close eye out for more announcements on the latest model if you are looking to spend between $150 and $199.

2. Get there early

Black Friday AirPods deals are some of the biggest on the shelves this November, so the biggest discounts often sell out quickly. If you’re looking for the best price possible we’d recommend you get in as early as you can. While there may be other offers later on in the weekend, they likely won’t beat the record price low we might see at the start of the event.

3. Price check

Once you’ve found the perfect deal it’s important to make sure it really is the perfect one. While many retailers simply price match each other over Black Friday, some stores can get away with a slightly lower sales price (though watch out for hidden shipping fees). It’s more likely, however, that you’ll find a retailer offering additional incentives to shop through them. You might find the same price available, but with free subscriptions, gift cards, or accessories also up for grabs.

Should you buy AirPods before Black Friday?

With more and more retailers launching early offers, it can be difficult to leave early Black Friday AirPods deals on the shelves and wait for the official sales. However, there are certain instances when picking up a set of true wireless earbuds before Black Friday itself rolls around could be the smarter option. 

The second generation AirPods, for example, may well run off the shelves before the end of November. That means anyone after super cheap prices (and we would only recommend picking these up for $99.99 or less) on the previous generation should be keeping an eagle eye on recent discounts. We’ve already seen the previous generation AirPods Pro discontinued against the new model just released, which means where you could previously pick up a set of ANC earbuds for $169 you’re now paying between $220 and the $249 MSRP. 

It’s true that official Black Friday AirPods deals will likely offer up the best prices of the year, but it’s sometimes the case that we first glimpse these discounts weeks in advance. Knowing how cheap each model has been in the past, and the price we expect each one to hit in the November sales can help you work out if an early offer really is all it’s cracked up to be. 

After all, there are plenty of benefits to shopping early; there are no shipping time concerns, stock will run out much slower, and you can always keep your finds in their boxes in case you do spot a better deal later on in the year. 

We’re listing all our price predictions for this year’s Black Friday AirPods deals throughout this article, but you’ll find them all just below as well. We wouldn’t recommend bending for any price that sits above the record low until official sales roll around, though. 

AirPods 2019 AirPods 2021 AirPods Pro 2021 AirPods Max
MSRP $159 $179 $249 $549
Record low $99 $174.99 $229 $449
Expected Black Friday price $89-$99 $169 – $174 $219-$229 $449

Black Friday AirPods deals: what to expect

The second generation earbuds usually see some heavy discounts in Black Friday AirPods deals, but that tradition has been muddied by the new release. 

We’re actually expecting second generation AirPods prices to plummet over the next couple of weeks, potentially running the buds off the shelves before the sales even have a chance to begin. That means we might not see them available in Black Friday AirPods deals at all. 

We’d recommend picking these up if you’re looking to pay as little as possible, but better value will be found in the new model. At $179, the AirPods 3s are around $60 more than the $119 sales price we’re seeing on the previous generation at the moment, but with plenty of upgrades under the hood we’d recommend the newest model to anyone who can stretch for it.

If we do see these buds hanging around for Black Friday AirPods deals, we will see sales beat previous $99 record lows with ease. However, it’s unlikely that the older model will survive the next couple of weeks. 

  • Price prediction: MSRP – $159 | Expected price – $89-$99 or out of stock

Black Friday AirPods 3 deals: what to expect

The AirPods 3 were released just a couple of weeks ago. That means this year’s Black Friday AirPods deals will have a brand new model to contend with, but that doesn’t mean we don’t see any discounts. Last year, for example, Apple launched the iPad Air 4 and M1 MacBook just before the holiday sales and we still saw some early savings hitting both releases. 

The $179 / £179 price of the new AirPods is, obviously, a little lower than the costs of these devices which means there’s a little less wiggle room for retailers to play with. However, we’re confident that flash sales will likely offer around $10 / £10 off the MSRP during the main event, especially considering we’ve already seen $5 off in the US. Competition on these discounts is going to be high, though, which means stock could fly off the shelves as soon as a price cut is announced.

  • Price prediction: MSRP – $179 | Expected price – $169-$179

Black Friday AirPods Pro deals: what to expect

In its latest event, Apple also sneaked in a new set of AirPods Pro earbuds. That means the $169.99 sales price of the ANC earbuds may be a distant memory, with retailers opting to only show the latest set of buds on their pages. However, you’ll still find Amazon listings for the cheaper previous generation, so it’s well worth keeping a close eye out for some record low prices in the wake of the new release. 

As for the 2021 model, that $249 MSRP is back in business but we’ve already seen it give way to a $219 sales price early in its lifetime. That means it’s likely to take part in this year’s Black Friday AirPods deals, but we’d recommend keeping watch over the previous generation for even lower prices.

  • Price prediction: (2019 model) MSRP – $249 | Expected price – $149-$169
  • Price prediction: (2021 model) MSRP – $249 | Expected price – $219.99

Black Friday AirPods Max deals: what to expect

The biggest discounts might be reserved for the AirPods Max, but only because it’s got the highest starting price. These luxury cups initially launched in December last year at $549, but quickly dropped to $499 throughout 2021. We’ve been seeing $489.99 price tags far more regularly over the last few weeks. 

That may well be the cost we return to in this year’s Black Friday AirPods deals, though we wouldn’t be surprised to see an additional $10 or $20 off the price here. 

  • Price prediction: MSRP – $549 | Expected price – $449-$479

Today’s best deals

If you can’t wait for Black Friday AirPods deals, you’ll find all of today’s lowest prices on Apple’s true wireless earbuds and headphones just below.

AirPods don’t make great gaming headphones, but we’re rounding up our expectations for this year’s Black Friday gaming headset deals and Black Friday PS5 headset deals elsewhere. It’s worth doing some research if you are on the hunt for some new cups, with our guide to the best gaming headsets on the market right now.
