There were some excellent AirPods deals during Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but those sales are long gone and the high demand for Apple's wireless earbuds during those events now means it's not going to be easy to snag a set before the holidays — especially if you want to make some savings.
However, Woot just relaunched one of Black Friday's best AirPods Pro deals and is once again offering the noise-cancelling 'buds for just $189.99 (opens in new tab). That's a $60 discount on their usual retail cost and even beats Amazon's best offer (opens in new tab) right now. Plus, you'll get them before Christmas with free shipping for Prime (opens in new tab) members.
The AirPods Pro feature active noise cancellation to block out any ambient and background sounds around you so you can focus on your music, calls, or whatever's playing in your ears at the time. They also feature a transparency mode which allows you to filter back in all those sounds in case you do need to hear what's around you for a moment.
Another major upgrade that the AirPods Pro have over the standard AirPods (opens in new tab) is improved water-resistance and sweat-resistance, making them a much better option to wear to the gym or out for a run — even in the rain. We even ran a 5K with the AirPods Pro to see how they'd hold up and they did great.
These are in-ear earbuds as opposed to the standard AirPods design. You'll receive three sizes of soft, silicone tips to help adjust the earbuds for a better fit. There's also a notable feature which uses adaptive EQ to tune your music to the shape of your ear automatically, providing customized sound for each user and ensuring you have the right fit.
The AirPods Pro are easy to setup with all Apple devices, and they can be used with non-Apple devices using Bluetooth as well. Apple device owners will likely have the best experience with them though, with easy pairing and device switching, hands-free access to Siri by saying "Hey Siri", touch controls, and more. The case that the AirPods Pro earbuds come in is also capable of charging wirelessly and can keep the earbuds powered up on-the-go for more than 24 hours.

The Woot deal is slated to run through the end of December but there's every chance that it will sell out long before then with increased demand at this time of year, so it's well worth snagging a set at this price (opens in new tab) while you can.
