Best Overall

1. Apple AirPods Pro

Apple

More than 44,000 Amazon shoppers have already picked up these best-selling earbuds, and for good reason. The golden standard of Zoom calls, they're discreet, stay put surprisingly well in your ear (even better than the originals, thanks to their customizable silicone seal) and sync up to Bluetooth in seconds. Our personal favorite feature of these earbuds, however? The sound modes. When we reviewed them, we were blown away by the active noise cancelation, which provided a near-soundproof listening experience at the office. We also marveled at their ultra-long battery life.

Most Affordable

2. Apple AirPods 2nd Generation

Apple

The classic design of these wireless earphones will be a no-brainer if you're looking for something simple-yet-effective for listening to music, podcasts or audiobooks on a budget—particularly since they're just $89 during this two-day sale. The charging case is a game-changer, and we loved the easy pairing, snug fit and high sound quality when we tried them out. You'll be giving up a few key features with this model, however: namely, the active noise cancelation, which blocks out exterior sound, the sweat- and water-resistant build of the Pros and a little bit of the battery life. (According to Apple, these ones last for five hours versus the Pros' six hours.)

While similar to the 2nd gens, they've got the slight edge thanks to the sweat- and water-resistant exterior for use in the rain or at the gym during a heavy sweat sesh. They've got a slightly longer battery life and a MagSafe charging case (an upgrade from the old lightning model)—just not the active noise cancelation. Still, it's a pretty sweet deal for $150, down from $169.

Most Splurge-Worthy

4. Apple AirPods Max Headphones

Apple

Launched in December 2020, the AirPods Max are for the techie who prefers a full headphone experience. Complete with the same active noise cancelation (and several other sound modes) you love from your AirPods Pro, a comfortable mesh lining at the crown and memory foam ear cushions, they're the complete package. They offer high-fidelity, or hi-fi audio (which is basically just a fancy way of saying it's very high-quality), and they have sensors that help them detect when they're on your head—and when you take them off or lift one of the ear cups to pause them. Did we mention they also wipe the floor with the AirPods when it comes to their battery life spanning up to 20 hours? Right now, you can save $50, so they can finally be yours for less than $500.
