Early Black Friday Deal Knocks the AirPods 3 Back Down to All-Time Low

Right now, Amazon is offering a chance to snag a pair of Apple's latest flagship earbuds for $140, which is nearly $30 off the usual price.

Apple recently release the second generation of its popular AirPods Pro, which is its most advanced pair of earbuds to date. But the all-new active noise-canceling earbuds won't be for everyone and the $249 list price might be too much to ask for a lot of folks. Whether you don't like the in-ear design, don't want to pay extra for ANC or you're just looking for a more affordable AirPods deal, Amazon has got you covered right now with with an early Black Friday deal knocking the AirPods 3 down to just $140. That saves you $29 compared to the list price and ties the all-time lowest price we've seen. 

Unlike the AirPods Pro, these third-gen AirPods have an open design, so they don't have active noise cancellation, but they still offer some serious improvements over the AirPods 2. The adaptive EQ attunes music to your ear shape, and the battery life has been bumped up to 30 hours total. They also have an IPX4 water-resistance rating.

It should be noted that deals on Apple devices rarely last long, and without a clear-cut expiration, there's no guaranteeing how long this discount will be available. We'd recommend getting your order in sooner rather than later if you're hoping to grab a pair at this price.
