We're already some hours into the second day of Amazon's Prime Day event, but we still have tons of good deals available. We're particularly fond of the decent discounts we're seeing for AirPods because these are some of the best prices we've ever seen. From the AirPods Pro 2 and even the Powerbeats Pro, we're enchanted by all these discounts on our favorite Apple earbuds - so enchanted we can't wait to get these in our ears and jam out to Taylor Swift.

Since tracking down items on Amazon can be a bit of a chore most days, we rounded up all the AirPod deals we could find and threw in some Beats discounts too since they also come from Apple.

Should you get AirPods during Prime Big Deal Days?

Yes, especially given that Apple doesn't usually slash prices on AirPods too much. With events such as Prime Day or Black Friday, you should be taking advantage of any deal that pops up if there's something you want to purchase.

Of course, some models will have a better discount than others and your budget may only agree with some of these earbuds, but overall, we think these are some solid deals that are worth your attention. Whether you really want some of those slick AirPods or the more expensive AirPods Pro, that's up to you. Frankly, the Conversation Awareness feature that comes with the newest AirPods Pro 2nd generation USB-C model has captured our attention for all the right reasons.

Also don't forget to also check out the Beats Powerbeats Pro if you want a model that will stay in its place while you workout. Or, if your ears don't agree with in-ear buds, perhaps the Max version is more down your alley. No matter if you're an Android or iPhone user, AirPods can be your next favorite way to listen to music.

Should you upgrade to the new AirPods Pro 2nd Generation with USB-C?

While the biggest change about the new AirPods Pro 2nd Generation (USB-C) is the presence of the USB-C port for charging, there are some other cool improvements too. The design for the new model remains the same as the one we had for the 2022 version, but there are some worthy new features. First off, the buds come with Precision Finding which will help you locate the buds wherever they drop much easier. This should come in handy particularly when you lose one in the laundry basket or right between the couch pillows.

The charging case also comes with a higher IP rating, which is obviously fantastic news for all those moments when you're caught off guard by summer rain or when you drop your bag in a puddle. So should you get the new AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C? Well, if you don't already have AirPods, the new model should be the one you add to your cart, but if you have last year's model, you may want to really consider if you really want some of these features.
