Apple's big 2019 launch event is now over. And if you were delaying an AirPods purchase in anticipation of a new model with active noise cancellation or those rumored over-ear noise-canceling headphones, you'll probably have to continue to wait until 2020. 

That noted, the current-generation AirPods (with the nifty wireless charging case) have been selling at a discount for months -- usually $10 off Apple's $199 list price. For a few weeks in August, they dipped to $155. At the moment, Amazon, B&H and others are offering them for $169.

Though it's hard to find brand-new first-gen AirPods at this point, there are other wireless headphones in Apple's portfolio available for under list price, too. The PowerBeats3 Wireless headphones cost $200 when you buy from Apple, but Walmart has them for $91. And the $200 Beats Solo3 headphones are currently available at Best Buy for $121.

One thing to consider: Apple offers free custom engraving on all AirPods cases when you buy from it directly. You'll get no such offer from third-party retailers such as Amazon.
