Apple AirPods price hits NEW low in this Black Friday deal

The latest Apple AirPods are going VERY cheap at major retailers right now

To find a deal on the infamously popular Apple AirPods is hard enough; to find one worth shouting about is harder still. But this Black Friday deals period, we’ve spotted a pretty incredible discount on the second-generation AirPods with standard charging case.

You can pick up a pair at John Lewis (and Amazon) right now for just £124, which is effectively the cheapest these swish earbuds have ever been. If the AirPods were on your wishlist this Black Friday (and, let’s face it, they always are), now is the time to strike.

The second-gen Apple AirPods improve upon their predecessors, a product we reviewed very positively indeed back in 2017, in pretty much every way – at least on the technical front. For starters, they have a battery that’s better able to cope with microphone use. This essentially gives you an extra hour of call time, taking the total from two hours to three.

Then there’s the audio quality, which has seen an improvement that I’d struggle to describe as anything other than “substantial” – you’ll have to use them yourself to hear what I mean. You’re also getting voice control courtesy of Siri, alongside the usual touch-sensitive stems: tap to play/pause, double-tap to skip, you know the drill.

In addition, the AirPods pair with your iPhone in one swift motion, like the various Apple-made Beats headphones. They’ll also automatically pause audio when they’re removed from your ears, which is an undervalued but immensely useful feature. All of this also happens much faster now, thanks to new processors under the hood.

If you don’t own a pair of AirPods and you’d like to be the envy of your friends, colleagues or classmates, there’s no better excuse to buy a pair than this whopper of a discount. What are you waiting for?
