The best Apple AirPods and Beats Wireless earbuds deals

All of the biggest discounts on the company's wireless earbuds.

Angela Lang/CNET

Apple's big 2019 launch event is now over. And if you were delaying an AirPods purchase in anticipation of a new model with active noise cancellation or those rumored over-ear noise-canceling headphones, you'll probably have to continue to wait until 2020. 

That noted, the current-generation AirPods (with the nifty wireless charging case) have been selling at a discount for months -- usually $10 off Apple's $199 list price. For a few weeks in August, they dipped to $155. At the moment, Amazon, B&H and others are offering them for $170.

And though it's hard to find brand-new first-gen AirPods at this point, there are other wireless headphones in Apple's portfolio available for under list price, too. One of the best deals is on the PowerBeats3 Wireless headphones, which Apple sells for $200, but are available at Walmart for $91.

One thing to consider: Apple offers free custom engraving on all AirPods cases when you buy from it directly. You'll get no such offer from third-party retailers such as Amazon.
