Apple’s AirPods Pro just dropped to their lowest price ever

If you've ever wanted to buy a pair of AirPods Pro, right now is the best time to get them. Walmart is kicking off its Black Friday deals with an incredible offer on Apple's premium noise-canceling earbuds: you can buy the AirPods Pro right now for £159 (currently, they're £249 on Apple's website). This is the lowest price the AirPods Pro have ever been.

The AirPods Pro feature active noise cancellation, for better listening, and various-sized silicone ear tips, for more comfort.

And these happen to be the 2021 version of the headphones, which include the MagSafe Charging Case that offers wireless charging and delivers over 24 hours of total battery life. We anticipate these will sell out quickly, so check out the deal ASAP. Read more: AirPods Pro review

This new price is £90 less than the price at the Apple Store and about £30 less than the usual Amazon price. Amazon and other retailers may match the price -- we'll keep our eyes peeled and let you know, in case the AirPods Pro sell out at Walmart.

If that price is still too rich for your blood, note that Best Buy will have the new Beats Studio Buds for £100 starting Thursday.

That's £50 off the list price, and a new all-time low for that 2021 model as well.
