There’s a great deal on the horizon from Verizon. The communications giant has brought back one of its best deals, offering the AirPods Pro for one of the lowest prices we’ve seen them, $220. That’s $30 off, down from $250, for some of the best, most subtle, coolest true wireless earbuds available and with Apple’s legendary design and sound.
Apple really went for it when it stepped up from its AirPods to AirPods Pro. The most noticeable difference is the active noise cancellation. When you’re wearing your AirPods Pro and the noise cancellation is activated, you can feel like you’re the only person on the planet. It blocks out all surrounding noise, especially wind, which was a No. 1 suspect for call interference with the AirPods. At the same time, Apple has included a transparency mode, so that you can mediate the noise cancellation feature and allow your preferred level of important outside chatter — be it meetings, conversations with friends, kids — into your listening zone.
Another huge difference is the interchangeable silicone ear tips that mold the earphones, and their output, directly into your ear’s canal for the best aural experience. They’re also equipped with Adaptive EQ, meaning that your podcasts, music, and dialogue will be customized automatically, corresponding to the shape of your ear. AirPods Pro are shorter and more subtle than the standard AirPods and Apple constructed each bud with three microphones, with one of them designed specifically to pick up your voice so that they’re amazing on calls. Additionally, there’s now a vent system that helps release the annoying pressure that can build up in your ear from the noise-canceling features.
But how long do they last on a single charge? That’s often the question with all wireless devices, not just headphones. The answer is very positive: Apple has upped the battery life to an impressive five hours, backed up with the portable charging case which only requires juice once a day (it lasts up to 24 hours). And of course, there’s support for Siri and built-in voice control for all your music and calls and volume.
While competitors like Bose might offer longer battery life, there’s no better sound, or look, than Apple’s AirPods, and they don’t get much better than the AirPods Pro. Compare this offer with our other AirPods deals, but this is impressive, at $30 off, you’re only paying $220 for brand new AirPods Pro, down from $250, at Verizon.
