Gone are the days of judging wireless earbuds as gimmicky novelties. We were all once probably thinking, what if they fall out of my ear and down into the sewer? Or just, Wow that guy looks dumb wearing those. Silly us. Now we're all about using them for Zooms, shuffling an AM-to-PM playlists, and tuning out the city clamor—all while having a recognizable look to show off. And in the world of wireless headphones, there's nothing more luxurious or status-worthy than Apple's AirPods. And right now, Amazon is taking 30% off Apple's best-selling AirPods Pro earbuds—that's the cheapest they've ever been with $70 shaved off. Even better, all of Apple's AirPods are now up to 40 percent off, including the latest AirPods 3, and the Esquire-endorsed AirPods Max.

To focus on AirPods Pro: look-wise, this is similar to the OG AirPods with a sleek white design, H1 chip for easy pairing, and Apple's iconic Siri technology. But the set does have a few noticeable upgrades. For starters, AirPods Pro feature active noise canceling for a "Do not disturb" as well as transparency mode for a "Now available." Its adaptive EQ tech also automatically tunes your content—be it a podcast or a nighttime playlist—to the shape of your ear. While its battery life on one charge is only roughly five hours, we've probably all adapted the habit of always keeping earbuds in the charging case to avoid the dreadful dying sound.

And the fit is fire, too. AirPods Pro feature three soft, customizable silicone tips, making each bud comfortable enough to wear all day long (thanks to their 24-hour battery life with the wireless charging case, you actually can). Not to mention they're both sweat- and water-resistant, making them a killer accessory for grueling workouts or rainy days. Normally, Apple sells AirPods Pro at $249, which is quite a ticket; however, Amazon is shaving 30 percent off this asking price. It's rare to see anything Apple under $180, so if you want to upgrade your time at home or simply upgrade your existing headphones, they'll be well worth the investment.
