Apple Black Friday: AirPods Pro With MagSafe Drop to All-Time Low of $159 ($90 Off)

Update November 23: This deal is now also available at Amazon.

Black Friday is officially in full swing this afternoon, with the launch of one of the first major discounts at Walmart. There you can get Apple's AirPods Pro with MagSafe Charging Case for just $159.00, down from $249.00.

This deal is live as of 3 p.m. EST for Walmart+ subscribers only, and it will go live for all shoppers beginning tonight at 7 p.m. EST.

This deal is now the best price that we've ever tracked on the AirPods Pro with MagSafe, and it's beating most other retailers' prices by about $30. Given that Apple just refreshed the AirPods Pro with the MagSafe Charging Case in October, this is a very good deal for the AirPods Pro.

The only difference between the 2021 AirPods Pro with MagSafe Charging Case and the 2019 AirPods Pro is the addition of the MagSafe Charging Case. Otherwise, the headphones are the exact same as they were when released in 2019, but given that the price cut is already so steep on the 2021 model, it's best to opt for Walmart's deal.

We're keeping track of all this season's best deals in our Black Friday 2021 Roundup. You can also find more of our daily deals and other offers in our Deals Roundup.

I still love my AirPods Pro I’ve had over a year. Since the last back to school promo. I bought the beats fit pro to exercise with and they’ve been great not worrying about falling out. They both provide the same stuff as far as ANC/Spatial. Pretty good deal.

My god. When will the madness end. People actually pay for this ?
For unlimited grocery deliveries with no extra charge? I absolutely pay for it! It saved me over $500 in delivery fees in the last year. I’m not a Walmart fan, but I’ve had almost zero problems with their grocery delivery service.

Ok, this deal twisted my arm so I ordered one. I'm one of those hold-outs who has never owned a pair of Apple AirPods. I've long had the belief that I had no need to pay over $150 or so, tops, for a good set of headphones or earbuds. (I had a great pair of LG Tone Pro bluetooth earbuds that served me well for years, as well as a good set of Sennheiser headphones I use for any mixing work I might need to do.) I was pretty sure I didn't want to settle for anything less than a "Pro" version of AirPods, too, since I won't be satisfied if the sound quality "could be better" with a different version of essentially the same basic product.

Well -- this sale finally ticks all the boxes so I'll give them a try. (Spent way too much money on Apple stuff, AND home repair stuff, this season -- so this is going to have to be about the end of it!)

I've been on the Pros since they came out and just tried the non-Pro 1st-gen AirPods again the other day, holy crap I forgot how tinny and lifeless those sounded in comparison. I let my mom try my Pros to see what she's been missing and she literally teared up as the music was so much more immersive. She's upgrading today!

Also, spatial audio, particularly the 'spatialize stereo' (fixed, not head tracked) feature in iOS 15 is pretty cool. I dislike it for podcasts, but for music I've come to really like it, especially while walking outdoors. The way it places your music inside a virtualized physical space makes the sound feel more in harmony with the physical space around you, rather than like it's originating from a speaker in your ear. It sounded almost too different to me at first, but I've been enjoying it more and more.
