In doing our daily scan for the best deals across the internet, we noticed that Apple’s AirPods Pro — the noise-cancelling (and better-fitting) sister to AirPods — are on sale for $60 off, a savings of 28 percent, over at Amazon. We haven’t seen them this cheap since February — and we look, a lot. When our tech writer Jordan Bowman gave AirPods Pro a spin as part of his ongoing testing of wireless earbuds, he found that they’re basically AirPods, but better, because of thoughtful upgrades like the aforementioned immersive noise-cancellation, a superior battery life, and their little black vents to alleviate that completely sealed-off, underwater feeling some earbuds can give you. The AirPods pro also come with swappable ear tips that offer more of a custom fit and a case that can charge the earbuds when they’re in it. These features are in addition to many of the things that made the original AirPods so beloved, including a simple setup process, a seamless connection to an iPhone, a compact size, and a relatively comfortable design (all of which you get with the AirPods Pro, too).
