It’s that time of year again: Black Friday, the annual shopping event where everyone hunts for the best deals. The day itself is tomorrow (November 25), but the deals often start days before and continue through Cyber Monday (November 28). Apple AirPods are popular gifts and famous travel companions, and several models are often on sale throughout the year. So keep an eye out for great deals on AirPods, AirPods Pro, and AirPods Max near the end of November when Black Friday sales take off.
These are the best Black Friday deals we’ve found on the various AirPods models so far. We’ll keep this page updated as deals come and go, and our automated price comparison tools can help you find up-to-date deals, too.

Black Friday 2022: latest AirPods Pro deals
The second-generation AirPods Pro look similar to the first-generation model, but they sound better, have longer battery life, and offer a few other welcome improvements. Just released in October of this year, Apple sells them for $249 / £249 and major deals are harder to come by, but you should be able to save $20-$30 this year. We believe that most buyers will be more satisfied with the new model than the old one.
Although Apple no longer sells the first-generation AirPods Pro, you can still find them at various retailers while supplies last. Because they are looking to liquidate inventory, you can sometimes find a great deal on them.
Latest AirPods Deals
The third generation AirPods are a significant improvement over the second generation model. They usually retail for $179 / £189 with the wireless charging case, but you can often find them a bit cheaper. Apple also sells a model with a wired Lightning case for $169.
The biggest discounts are usually found on the second generation AirPods. They’re a bit outdated and don’t have the features or sound quality of the third-gen model, but if you want to use them primarily for phone calls rather than music, you can save a lot of money. Apple sells them for $129 / £139 but you can easily find them for much less.
Latest AirPods Max Deals
Frankly, the AirPods Max are too expensive. Compared to other consumer-facing over-ear noise-canceling headphones, you may be paying hundreds more. Apple’s price is $549 / £549, and they’re pretty easy to find for $100 less, but a Okay the price would be less than $400/£400.
