Get the New AirPods Pro 2 With USB-C for $199.99 Thanks to Amazon's $49 Discount [Updated]

Last week, Apple launched the all-new AirPods Pro 2 with the USB-C/MagSafe Charging Case. At the same time, we began tracking the first ever discount on the earbuds, and over the past day or two that $49 markdown is back at Amazon.

You can get the new model of the AirPods Pro 2 for $199.99, down from $249.00. Given that the accessory isn't even a week old yet, this is the best deal we've seen so far, and Amazon provides an estimated delivery date of late September/early October.

There are a few minor changes to the AirPods Pro 2 besides the addition of USB-C, including additional dust resistance and support for lossless audio with the Vision Pro headset. Apple doesn't sell the USB-C/MagSafe Charging Case separately, so if you want USB-C support you'll have to purchase a full new set of earbuds.

Our full Deals Roundup has more information on the latest Apple-related sales and bargains.

Update: This deal has now expired. If the AirPods Pro 2 return to $199.99, we'll be sure to update this article again.

Update 2: The $199.99 sale price briefly reappeared this afternoon, but has once again expired. If you don't see the deal on Amazon, be sure to check back later, as it could return later in the day.

Update 3: As of the morning of September 28, the price continues to fluctuate at Amazon, so keep checking and grab a pair whenever it's dropped to $199.99 if you're interested.

Also available at Best Buy for the same amount. I picked mine up last week for $199 and they let me trade in my Gen 1 for $40

Got mine yesterday (through the affiliate link of course.)

I feel like this is hardly news anymore though. I don’t think they’ve ever actually been on sale for $250. I would feel bad for anyone who bought them full price from Amazon.

Holy crap are they great though. Glad I waited, but also glad I upgraded from APP1. Everyone was right, a huge amount of subtle improvements. I’m not sure the audio is noticeably better but everything else about them is.

Oh it is. Significantly better. When combined with the best transparency modes it sounds almost like an open back ear bus and isn’t so isolating that plus sound quality makes it my favorite even if sound quality alone I may prefer other earbuds.
