Apple’s AirPods are among the best-reviewed Bluetooth earbuds on the market, and for a good reason. The lightweight headphones deliver crystal-clear sound and connect to your phone with ease.

You can also take them out and about without worrying about being rude or looking conspicuous, thanks to the device’s lack of a button and indicator light.

The AirPods are also very comfortable, which is handy if you’re trying to avoid taking them out in public. The AirPods Pro price is $170.00 off the original retail price.
