Early Prime Day deals bring the third-gen AirPods back down to $140

Amazon Prime Day is on the horizon but there’s plenty of sales you can already explore. One of the best early Prime Day deals currently running is a 17 percent discount on Apple’s third-generation AirPods. The earbuds are back down to their record-low price of $140, from $169. However, this deal doesn’t include AppleCare+ — you’ll have to pay another $29 for that. 

Apple’s third-gen AirPods came out in 2021 as a massive improvement to their predecessor. We gave them an 88 in our review thanks to features like a more comfortable design and way better audio quality. A lot of this comes down to their shorter, more contoured shape — the improved design also allows sound to more directly enter your ear. 
The AirPods and their case have IPX4 sweat and water resistance so you can more comfortably use them while doing activities like exercise. Plus, they offer always-on Siri and six hours of battery life (30 hours total with the case). 
If you’re just looking for relatively cheap, solid earbuds then check out the 38 percent discount on Apple’s second-generation AirPods. They’re currently down to $80 from $120 when not opting for AppleCare+. They offer five hours of continual battery or 24 hours with the case.
