Apple AirPods Pro are some of the most popular earbuds around but they’re not just fashionable because they look the part. These miniature buds also sound as good as they look. In fact, the AirPods Pro 2 currently top our ranking of the best wireless earbuds you can buy.
Naturally, we’re on the hunt for epic AirPods deals regardless of the season, and we’ve just spotted a seriously good idea courtesy of Walmart’s massive Spring sale. But be quick as the last time AirPods Pro dropped to this price, the deal didn’t stick around for very long.
Right now, Apple AirPods Pro 2 are on sale for $199 at Walmart. That’s a $50 saving compared to the full retail price of the premium wireless earbuds. This is one of the best Apple deals you can score right now, and we’re not expecting to see a big discount next month during the Memorial Day sales period.

Price history: Apple’s AirPods Pro 2 released last fall and enjoyed significant discounts during the Black Friday and holiday shopping periods, and are now on sale once again. This $199 deal at Walmart isn’t quite the lowest price ever — the buds were briefly $189 at Micro Center in March — but at this price, they still offer seriously good value for money.

Buy it if: You’re looking for a set of wireless earbuds that offer strong audio quality and ANC features in an aesthetically pleasing package. AirPods Pro are especially excellent for iOS and MacBook users as they are designed to pair seamlessly with other Apple products.
Don’t buy it if: You’re looking for some of the best cheap earbuds, or are primarily an Android user that wants buds designed specifically for that ecosystem. Also, if you demand lengthy battery life, the AirPods Pro 2’s six hours of charge may disappoint.
