If your heart is set on Apple AirPods and we definitely get why, this is a great deal from Staples. Ordinarily priced at $159, you can snap up these Apple AirPods for just $129. They’re the 2nd-generation so they are the latest release and they offer a lot for the price. In terms of battery life, you can expect around 5 hours of listening time or 3 hours of talk time on a single charge with the charging case holding multiple charges so you’re good to go for more than 24 hours until you need to find a power source. In a rush? A 15-minute charge will give you 3 hours of listening time or 2 hours of talk time.
Stylish to look at, the Apple AirPods are super easy to use, too. Simply pull them out of their charging case and they’re ready. There’s Siri support as well with compatible Apple devices, which is sure to be a time saver if you’d prefer to use your voice to change tracks rather than tap buttons.
As you’d expect from an Apple device, the audio quality is pretty great and you should expect crisp sound when talking to people via the dual beamforming microphones. Want to just wear one AirPod at a time? That’s an option as well, and useful if you need to pay more attention to your surroundings.
Effectively, all you’re missing out on with these AirPods is that the charging case is wired rather than wireless, and there’s no Active Noise Cancellation such as you see with the much pricier AirPods Pro. Given you’re only paying $129 for these, that’s great value. Be quick though — we can’t see Staples retaining stock for long at this great price.
