Apple's AirPods are some of the best wireless earbuds on the market, and certainly among the most popular. Their only real downside is the price of entry, with even the basic AirPods 2 costing $129. Verizon is helping folks snag a set for much less than that today, though, with close to $40 off that price for a limited time. This price is the lowest we've seen AirPods go in 2023 and is only around $10 more than the all-time low price we saw during Cyber Monday sales last year. There's no set end date for this AirPods deal, but we expect it won't hang around for too long.
While the AirPods 2 are no longer the most advanced model available these days, they still boast some impressive specs and remain the best AirPods for those on a tighter budget. They use the same H1 chip as the AirPods 3, meaning you get the same hands-free support for Siri and seamless connectivity with Apple devices. Plus, they have an impressive battery life of up to 24 hours on a single charge (with the included charging case).
They don't have the same spatial audio and wireless charging capabilities of the third-gen AirPods, or the active noise cancellation found on the pricier AirPods Pro, but for casual listeners looking for an affordable and easy-to-use pair of earbuds for strolling around town, these are a solid option at a great price.
