Walmart's early Black Friday sale lets you snag AirPods 2 for just $89
With Black Friday hurtling towards us, we're already seeing a bunch of retailers kick off their sales early. That's great news for those organized folks that want to get their holiday shopping done without braving crowds later this month and, with production and shipping issues galore this year, why wait?
That's especially true if you're searching for a Black Friday AirPods deal this year as Walmart has already unveiled its best offer on AirPods 2, dropping them down to just $89. That's the lowest we have ever seen them go and the best price we're likely to see this holiday season. Amazon matched the price briefly before going out of stock.
With the AirPods 2, you get the H1 chip inside instead of the W1 of the first-gen model, which still offers the same easy pairing but also enables features like the ability to have your SMS messages read to you while the headphones are in use. They have support for Siri, so you can use "Hey Siri" to request changes to songs, volumes or make calls and get directions. They can also be double-tapped to skip a song.
Score all-time low pricing with this AirPods 2 deal
Apple AirPods with Charging Case (second generation)
If you don't need the latest AirPods model or just want the most affordable entry point to the AirPods lineup, this is the deal for you. We've never seen Apple's second-gen AirPods go lower than this and we don't expect them to fall further later this month.
You'll get about 5 hours of listening time, or 3 hours of talk time on a single charge, but they come inside of the AirPods charging case, which will net you multiple charges for more than 24 hours of listening time. This deal is on the version that does not include the wireless charging case, so you'll charge these up using the provided Lightning cable.
AirPods are some of the most popular headphones out there, particularly with kids, if these aren't for you, they may well make a fantastic gift for the iOS user in your family. That being said, these can be used with any device that offers a Bluetooth connection, like Android phones, Windows PCs, and more.
