Going Pro

We love the AirPods Pro 2, giving the Lightning version a glowing review early this year. As well as looking stylish and having an excellent 30-hour battery life, they work wonderfully with Apple devices, instantly connecting for full-sounding audio in seconds. Now you can charge them more easily with USB-C.

Should you buy USB-C AirPods Pro 2? 

If you're in the market for a new set of earbuds, you can't go wrong with the AirPods Pro 2. If you've already decided you want one of the best pair of AirPods on the market, then choosing between Lightning or USB-C is fully dependent on personal preference and circumstances.

If you own a USB-C iPhone like the iPhone 15 or 1333, then the USB-C AirPods Pro 2 makes the most sense, especially considering the discounted price. If you don't own any USB-C-enabled devices, then you might want to stick with Lightning so you don't need to worry about extra cables and compatibility.

It's worth noting the USB-C AirPods Pro 2 will also support Lossless Audio on the Apple Vision Pro, so if you're thinking about spending $3500 in early 2024, then the USB-C version might be worth grabbing for that better audio experience.

Amazon Prime Big Deal Days kicks off on October 10 and lasts 48 hours. We'll be covering all the best deals, so stay tuned to iMore throughout the shopping event.
