Amazon has introduced a new record low price on the AirPods 3, available for $149.99, down from $179.00. At $29 off, this sale price beats the one that we were tracking earlier this week by about $5 and it's only available on Amazon as of writing.

You'll see this sale once you add the AirPods 3 priced at $169.99 to your shopping cart and Amazon automatically applies a $20 coupon code to your order. The AirPods 3 are shipped and sold directly from Amazon, and they're in stock now.

AirPods 3 adopt an AirPods-Pro style look with shorter stems and a more contoured design that's designed to better fit most ears. Apple says the AirPods have been created to sit at "just the right angle for comfort." To provide improved sound, Apple is using the H1 chip to provide an Adaptive EQ feature powered by computational audio.

good deal for people who really can't stand having earbuds that extends into their ear canals(i.e. Airpods Pro)....

Same price at Costco. I’d take the AirPod Pros over this though ($159 at Amazon/Walmart, $169 at Costco with better return policy, $149 tomorrow at Sams in store only).

Does Costco take returns on AirPods? i tried that at a different retailer, one that usually has a good return policy, and they would not take them citing hygiene concerns.
They do and the return period is not limited as the AirPods don’t fall into any of the exclusion categories.

You just got me to cancel the order I placed for my wife without seeing that the AirPod Pros were essentially the same price. Thank you for your service!
