Apple’s upgraded AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C MagSafe Charging Case is back down to $180 (reg. $250)

After the deal we saw late last month for Apple’s latest AirPods Pro 2 quickly rose in price again, Amazon is now offering them again for a lower price. $179.99 shipped. The normally $249 AirPods Pro 2 are now 28% off their regular price and at the lowest price we can find in new condition. Today’s deal comes within $1 of both our last mention and the all-time low on Amazon. These are the latest iteration of Apple’s professional earbuds, complete with the USB-C port built into the redesigned MagSafe charging case that made its first debut at Apple’s September 2023 event. And this is one of the few times we have been tracking them in the $180 range since last fall – today’s deal also falls within $18 of the $161.99 Geek Squad certified refurbished listing now. Our coverage is up 9to5Mac takes a look at the updated features and we’ll also go into more detail below.

Merging all the headline features from the original version of AirPods Pro 2, including the improved audio playback and active noise cancellation, spatial audio support, Apple Find My location tracking with U1 chip and Hey Siri voice command prompts, the highlights of Apple’s latest come via the aforementioned USB-C port on the MagSafe charging case – up to 30 hours of listening time with active noise cancellation enabled – and the software side of things.

Adaptive EQ tailors the sound to your ears based on the fit of the AirPods, while Personalized Spatial Audio joins Apple’s H2 chip and Transparency Mode to “minimize the intensity of loud sounds like sirens or power tools – so you can hear the world around you comfortably. AirPods 2 can automatically enable Transparency Mode when they detect you’re trying to talk to someone, and the all-new Adaptive Audio “intelligently adjusts sound control to suit your environment” for a more effective level of immersion in your content.

Would you rather go for the flagship Beats buttons? As of now, Best Buy still offers the Beats Studio Buds+ with ANC $75 shipped – all the details are here.

AirPods Pro 2 Features:

The Apple-designed H2 chip delivers even better audio performance, resulting in smarter noise cancellation and more immersive sound. The custom-engineered, low-distortion driver delivers crisp, clear highs and deep, rich bass in stunning definition. This makes every sound more lively than ever. Please note: If the size of the earbuds does not match the size of your ear canal or if the headset is not worn properly in your ears, you may not get proper sound quality or call performance. Replace the earbuds with earbuds that fit better in your ear.
