Whether you just got a new Apple iPhone or you’re tired of untangling your earbuds, there’s never been a better time to go wireless. The gold standard of Bluetooth-connected headphones—Apple AirPods—are on sale for a deep discount at Amazon.

The Apple AirPods (second generation) that come with a wired charging case are marked down to just $130 (was $159). That’s nearly 20 percent off!

Apple offers a seamless syncing experience with just about any iPhone, iPad, or Mac laptop or desktop computer. This is due to Apple’s unique design and technology that allows AirPods to “talk” to iOS and MacOS devices for automatic pairing every time you pop open the charging case—thanks to Apple’s “magical” H1 chip. The buds even know when they’re in your ear—they pause the song or podcast you’re listening to when you take one out.

“Great for walking due to Siri based controls,” writes a delighted five-star reviewer. “Siri also lets me look up unfamiliar words while listening to audiobooks, which I love. Only earbuds I’ve ever found that stay in my ears, yet so light and comfortable that I forget I have them in...very, very good and reliable product, pairs perfectly every time with no dropped signal, really excellently designed all the way around.”

Not only do the Apple AirPods sync with iPhones, they boast world-class audio quality with unparalleled clarity and rich sound. Apple’s Siri voice assistant comes built in, too. You’ll get five hours of battery life on a single charge, compared to the previous model’s three hours. In fact, you can get an additional three hours of battery life on just 15 minutes of charging time.

If you’re looking for earbuds with seamless integration with your Apple iPhone, iPad, MacBook, or even Apple Watch (they’re also compatible with most Android smartphones via Bluetooth, but without automatic pairing), the Apple AirPods are the crème de la crème. All that’s left to figure out is your playlist.

“This is my first pair of AirPods. I love them. They are life-changing! The AirPods arrived in less than 24-hours of ordering. They were packaged in a sleek, white Apple AirPods box,” another satisfied shopper adds. “I wholeheartedly give these AirPods five shiny gold stars.”
