Should You Buy Apple AirPods 3 on Prime Day 2022?

Thinking of picking up Apple's AirPods 3 during this summer's sale season? Here's our best advice.

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET's guide to everything you need to know and how to find the best deals.

Short answer: Yes -- but only if they're $150 or less. Prime Day could be a good time to buy the AirPods 3 if they return to near their low price.

Should you buy Apple AirPods 3 on Prime Day?

Amazon perpetually has discounts on the AirPods 3 -- or AirPods 3rd Generation, as Apple calls them -- ranging from $10 to $20. Currently, the Apple AirPods 3 are on sale at Amazon for $170, or $9 off their list price. However, the price has recently dipped to $150 and early this year the AirPods 3 hit $140 for a short time.

Hopefully, we'll see the price dip back to $150 for Prime Day, which is $29 off their list price and a decent price. $140 would even be better.
