Best Cyber Monday AirPods deals: The price drops continue through the weekend

Black Friday is over and gone — but the deals continue in the Cyber Monday seals. That means the lowest prices ever on AirPods models, from the AirPods 2 to the AirPods Max, and everything in between at a massive range of different retailers. Wanna know the best bit? You don't need to go searching through all those retailers, because we've put them all together here for a nice, easy search.

There are some of the biggest savings we've seen on the AirPods 2 most notably, which have dropped down from $129 to $79 over the course of the week. We're not holding out for any more reductions over Cyber Monday, but we can always hope for an even lower price to make them an even better buy. The recently release AirPods Pro 2 are also back at their lowest price ever, along with a new lowest price for the AirPods 3 — and the AirPods Max are currently hovering around at a $100 discount. 

Cyber Monday is still one of the best times of year to grab an excellent AirPods deal, and this year seems no different. As the weekend quickly moves, however, you'll soon find those deals start to dissipate — so make sure you're quick off the mark with them!

Best AirPods Cyber Monday deals at a glance

There are some wicked deals on AirPods this Cyber Monday, with big savings on the whole line of products. The AirPods 2 are the best deal at the moment, with a massive $50 saving. That isn't a new low, but it does match the buds previous lowest price. The AirPods Max too are at a great price, although they miss that golden lowest price by around $20. Finally, the AirPods Pro 2 are down to their lowest price again, with $60 off.

The AirPods Max are nearly three years old, and we expect Apple to release a newer model in 2024. That said, these are the best headphones Apple offers, and you can get them for $449 at the moment in Blue or Green. The lowest price we’ve ever seen was $429, so if we see anything close to that price over the course of the next couple of days, then jump at the chance to get these behemoths.

AirPods Cyber Monday deals Q&A

Which AirPods are the AirPods for me?

That's a trickier question than you might expect — there are a number of things to think about when going to pick up a pair of AirPods. Do you want ANC? In ear or over ear? Here's some advice that might help:

- AirPods 2

You should get the AirPods 2 if you're looking for the cheapest way to get a pair of AirPods in your ears, keeping the cost down. If you want the best sounding you should look elsewhere, but for everyone else they're going to be just fine.

- AirPods 3

If you want to dip your toes into Spatial Audio, these are the AirPods for you. They are a little more than you might hope, but they are the cheapest entry point into the Spatial audio space. Don't expect them to be the most comfortable, and you'll be away.

- AirPods Pro 2

If you can afford them, these are the AirPods to go for. They're comfortable, feature class-leading ANC, and they sound great to boot. They more intrusive into your ear, but they are still an excellent pair of buds for almost everyone.

- AirPods Max

Want to be able to tell everyone you've got the most expensive AirPods? These are the ones to go with. They are large and in charge — and cost a small fortune.

When is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday has already begun now that Black Friday has finished, and its going to run over until the end of Monday, November 27.

What is going to be reduced over Cyber Monday?

With any luck, loads of AirPods! We’re hoping for some lowest-ever prices on loads of Apple kit, though, as well, like iPhones, MacBooks, and more. There will also be reductions on the likes of TVs, accessories, and other home tech, so keep an eye out for some wicked price drops over the event.

Where can I find the best Cyber Monday deals?

You’ll find them all over the place, although the best places to look are going to be Amazon, Best Buy, and other big box retailers. We’ll be showing off the best deals here as well, so make sure you stick with us for the sale!
