Apple Wireless Charging Case: was $79 now $63 @ Amazon
The Apple Wireless Charging Case gives your AirPods wireless charging capabilities, allowing you to charge them on a Qi-compatible mat. If your current case is scratched up or damaged, it could be a good idea to replace it.
Prime Day AirPods Pro deals
The AirPods Pro offer a neater design than the standard AirPods and also have noise-canceling that is pretty effective for their size. The second-gen AirPods Pro are very good and tend to get sliced to on or below $200. But the first-generation AirPods Pro are also well worth checking out if you see them at a bargain price.
AirPods Pro 2 (2022): was $249 now $199 @ Amazon
PRICE DROP! Amazon is asking $199 for AirPods Pro 2 during Prime Day. They use Apple's new H2 chip to provide 2x more noise cancellation than their predecessors.

Prime Day Beats headphones deals
As a sub-brand of Apple, the Beats headphones might not have the instant appeal of the AirPods lineup, but they still offer some great sound and design, especially if you're a fan of bass. And Amazon Prime Day is a great time to score a set of Beats headphones or earbuds for a great price.
Beats Flex Wireless Earbuds: was $69 now $39 @ Amazon

Prime Day AirPods deals — which model to buy?
If you're after a pair of standard AirPods, you first need to decide between the AirPods 3 or AirPods 2. (Check out our guide to the AirPods 3 vs. AirPods 2). Released in 2021, the AirPods 3 sport an upgrade to design, functionality and sound, but are still lacking many of the features found on the Pro model. Meanwhile, the AirPods 2 are now the most basic buds in the range, but make up for this by being the most affordable of the lot.
On the other hand, the more expensive AirPods Pro 2 offer a suitably impressive upgrade for an additional fee. You get water/sweat resistance, a must if you're going to be using them in the gym, plus active noise cancellation (ANC). The design is also a tad more modern, and much more comfortable in your ears thanks to the swappable ear tips that allow for a custom fit. If you can afford to splurge, these are the AirPods to go for.
The AirPods Max are the most premium audio option Apple offers. The classy design is available in five different colors, and is also foldable for more convenient carrying. It also offers highly effective ANC, stunning audio, and a surprisingly effective control method in the form of the Digital Crown. Even on sale, these are an expensive pair of headphones, but the price of admission is worth it if you seek the very best.
