Dealmaster: Apple’s AirPods are back to their Black Friday price at Amazon

Today's Dealmaster is headlined by a joint-low on Apple's second-generation AirPods on Amazon. The totally wireless earbuds are currently down to $129, which is $30 off Apple's normal MSRP and about $15 off their typical price online. This is the latest version of the earbuds, meaning they come with Apple's improved H1 wireless chip and support for hands-free "Hey Siri" commands. This model does not come with a case that can be powered up via wireless chargers, though, nor does it support active noise cancellation like the AirPods Pro.

We still can't say these are the absolute best true wireless headphones on the market: the 4-5 hours of battery life is just OK, the lack of physical controls can be annoying, and the sound quality is mediocre as ever. (The Powerbeats Pro from Apple's Beats subsidiary are better in just about every way if you're looking for alternatives, but they're pricier.) Still, we can't deny how simple they are to use with iOS devices, nor how utterly popular they've become. If your heart is dead-set on buying a pair, this current sale matches the AirPods' going rate on Black Friday, so this looks like a sensible time to take the plunge.

If you're not interested in new headphones, the Dealmaster also has big sales on Audible subscriptions, Amazon's latest Kindle Paperwhite, a variety of discounts on TCL Roku TVs, and much more. Have a look at the full list below.
