Pretty much everywhere you go these days you'll see someone using Apple's AirPods in public. AirPods deals are nearly as common these days, as retailers across the board seem to be constantly discounting all the different variations of the hardware, especially with Cyber Monday just not too far off. That's great news for buyers looking to save some cash.
We have seen a little bit in the way of AirPods 3 deals even though the new model only just got released and the new AirPods Pro with MagSafe have already seen as much as $90 off. Given how popular AirPods are, we expect to see some really tempting deals to attract shoppers from Black Friday to Cyber Monday.
Whether you're looking for the cheapest AirPods price or want the best Cyber Monday AirPods Pro deal you can find, you don't have to look much further than right here. We keep tabs on AirPods pricing all year round so we can let you know which holiday AirPods deals are worth taking advantage of
Where to find the best Cyber Monday AirPods deals
AirPods are a hot ticket item throughout the year and retailers often offer deals to lure in buyers. With the holiday shopping season upon us, we're seeing the best Cyber Monday AirPods deals of the year. We'll be keeping tabs on the best offers on this page but the below retailers are a good place to start if you want to scope out some deals for yourself.

When do the Cyber Monday AirPods deals begin?
While Cyber Monday's official date is November 28 this year, most Cyber Monday sales are already happening! For the past few years, we've seen sales kicking off earlier and earlier. That means you can shop early, and beat the rush later on. With production and shipping delays likely, that's not a bad idea this year especially if you can find a retailer offering some kind of Cyber Monday price guarantee.
Best Cyber Monday AirPods deals
When looking at Apple's entry-level AirPods, there are a few different models to choose from. While the first-gen model have been discontinued, you can still pick up the second-generation AirPods as well as the newly-launched third-generation AirPods. The newest version have adopted a more AirPods Pro-like form factor, has a longer battery life, and support Spatial Audio. They also have MagSafe built into the charging case. If you're ok forgoing those features, you can surely snap up a great Cyber Monday deal on the AirPods 2 this fall.
Apple's second-gen AirPods with the wireless charging case may have been officially discontinued but you can still snag a set if you know where to look. Woot has them on sale for $133 though Prime members get a further $5 off that price at checkout meaning a saving of over $70 compared to their original list price.
Best Cyber Monday AirPods Pro deals
Prefer your true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation? Then Apple's AirPods Pro are for you. Introduced in late 2019, the AirPods Pro feature an in-ear design with ANC and Transparency modes so you can block out distractions or filter outside noise back in as you please. In 2021, Apple refreshed AirPods Pro with a new MagSafe charging case though everything else remains unchanged. Fancy features come with a steeper price tag, but luckily you don't have to look very far to find a pretty good Cyber Monday deal on them.
Not only is Best Buy selling the AirPods Pro with MagSafe case for $60 less than its regular price, but it's also offering a six-month free trial of Apple Music to new subscribers. That's another $60 (roughly) in savings.
Best Cyber Monday AirPods Max deals
AirPods Max are the first Apple-branded wireless over-ear headphones. With premium sound quality, ANC, support for Spatial Audio, and all of the pairing smarts of Apple's other AirPods, they offer the ultimate audio experience for Apple fans. Prices have started to come down with some great AirPods Max deals available since their initial release.
