The much-anticipated release of the new AirPods Pro is just around the corner, but Apple’s wireless earbuds won’t be going on sale anytime soon. This might lead some people to consider alternatives like Branded Beats by Dre Studio 2 which have been said to offer better sound quality for less money in total cost with tax and shipping included than their premium counterparts
It will definitely help them save up if they want an expensive pair or two at once without sacrificing too many luxuries from life essentials such as water bottle compatibility.
Buying AirPods at a discount is only possible when:
– you catch a great deal on an old, refurbished pair
– if you’re buying AirPods secondhand from someone with the equipment and willingness to sell their used earbuds right after an upgrade
– if you’re from that lucky pool of humanity that has been able to pick up a few pairs at a discount after the first model’s release
If your AirPods have not been refurbished through Apple, unless you know someone who can sell their pair dirt cheap or have bought a used pair yourself you won’t find much luck going for a discounted purchase.
AirPods prices have been steadily going up since the first model was released, and the new Pro version is expected to only jack up the price even more. So if you were waiting for the new release to go on sale so you could snag a discount, don’t hold your breath. You might be better off looking into some of the other wireless earbud options that are out there.
Apple Wants You To Pay A Higher Price
Apple is known for releasing products with inflated prices and then slowly bringing the cost down after the initial release. The AirPods are a perfect example of this. Apple released the first model of AirPods for $159 in December of 2016. A little more than two years later, they raised the price to $199. And now, with the release of the AirPods Pro, the price is expected to jump up to $249.
If you’re not one for waiting and would like to buy a pair of AirPods now, you’ll have to shell out at least $199. But don’t worry, the price is only going to go up from here. So if you’re waiting for the new release to go on sale so you could snag a discount, don’t hold your breath. You might be better off looking into some of the other wireless earbud options that are out there.
