Planning to get a new pair of AirPods? This is the perfect time to get a pair as Amazon is currently offering $60 off on the latest AirPods Pro (2nd generation), which was initially launched by Apple in September of last year and was also updated last month along with the iPhone 15 lineup. This offer is valid till supplies last.
The AirPods Pro (2nd generation) is powered by the new H2 chip, which elevates the Active Noise Cancellation and Transparency mode experience along with offering longer battery life. In addition to Touch control for Media Playback, users can adjust the volume directly from the stem. The brand-new charging case now has a new Lanyard Loop, a built-in speaker and it features the U1 chip to support precision finding, which will help users easily find their AirPods case by playing a sound on the Find My App. Apple is also offering an additional ear tip size – Extra Small for a better and more comfortable fit. More features such as Adaptive Audio, Personalized Volume, and Conversation Awareness are exclusively available to the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) for users running iOS 17, iPadOS 17, watchOS 10, tvOS 17, and macOS Sonoma.
Apple also updated the AirPods Pro (2nd generation) last month to feature a USB-C port along with IP54 Water and Dust Resistance, compared to the IPX4 rating on its lightning version. Since the H2 Chip on the USB-C variant of the AirPods Pro has a faster 5 GHz wireless frequency, it will also support 20-bit, 48 kHz Lossless Audio when connected to the Apple Vision Pro, which is expected to be released next year. Since the H2 chip on the Lightning version has a slower 2.4 GHz wireless frequency, it will not support the same. Both the USB-C and Lightning variants are available to purchase at a $60 discount on Amazon, with an effective price of $189, down from $249. However, if you’re planning to get the Apple Vision Pro next year, we’d recommend you to get the USB-C variant due to Lossless Audio and reduced audio latency. For an extra $23, you can also add AppleCare+ to your purchase, which I also would recommend because of its benefits.
Additionally, with the purchase of any AirPods, customers are eligible to get Apple Music free for six months. This offer is only available for new subscribers. Visit apple.com/promo for more details.
