This sale is about $10 off from the all-time low price that we tracked on this pair of AirPods over the 2021 holiday season, and it's one of the best deals that we've seen so far in 2022. Amazon's sale is also beating rival retailers' discounts by about $20, so this is the best deal you'll find online for the AirPods 3 this week.

The AirPods 3 were introduced in October 2021 and feature a more compact stem similar to the AirPods Pro, and a redesigned contoured fit. There's a force sensor built into the stem for physical control over media and Siri, and they come with a MagSafe Charging Case.

We track sales for every model of the AirPods in our Best AirPods Deals guide, so be sure to bookmark that page while you shop around for the wireless headphones.

AirPods are one product that will be an instant-buy whenever my current set dies / gets lost. They're that good.

I found the Airpods 3 to have an overly large bud - to the point where I returned them.

Clearly YMMV depending on your ear shape, but the fit is not the same as the original AirPod or the AirPod pro.
Thanks. That was my worry too. I havent tried any of them but I did find the original wired ear buds that came with the earlier phones to be very uncomfortable.
