Greetings, Arsians! Courtesy of our friends at TechBargains, we have another round of deals to share. Today’s list is headlined by a rare deal on Apple’s popularAirPods, which are down to $145 at Amazon. That’s not the lowest price we’ve seen on the little wireless earbuds, but discounts on these things aren’t exactly common, so it’s a solid price nonetheless.
You probably know the deal with AirPods by now. They’re far from perfect: they neither feel nor sound much better than the plastic earbuds that come for free with every iPhone, they don’t block outside noise well, and they only last about 4-5 hours on their own before needing to go in their charging case. But they’re more than the sum of their parts. They pair easily with an iPhone, they’re lightweight, and that case extends battery life by another 20+ hours. The convenience of simply popping them in and having music start playing is hard to explain until you use them.
Now, there’s a big caveat here: Apple is likely to introduce new AirPods in the coming weeks. Images of an apparent charging case were discovered just this week, and past reports have suggested a pricier noise-cancelling model may also arrive down the road. But the release of new models always means discounts on the old one—if you’d rather save $14 and don’t care about missing the water resistance, wireless charging, and hands-free Siri expected to arrive in a new model this fall, here you go.
Beyond that, we have your last chance to get discounts on Xbox Live Gold and Kindle Unlimited, deals on Roku’s Streaming Stick+ and Google’s Pixelbook, and more. Check them out below.
