If you’re looking to start the new year with a shiny new pair of wireless earbuds, we’ve got a brilliant deal for you! Apple’s immensely-popular AirPods have been slashed in price to, presumably, celebrate the start of 2020.
The Bluetooth-powered earbuds can be used to listen to music and podcasts or make calls thanks to the advanced beam-forming microphones in the stems. Since this is the latest pair of AirPods, launched last year, they can also be used to summon Siri handsfree by shouting out the magic summoning spell “Hey Siri”. You can ask the digital assistant to start timers, call friends, skip songs, and more all by saying the wake phrase “Hey Siri” before your request.
As soon as you pair your AirPods to your iPhone, they will instantly become available to connect with any other Apple-branded gadgets around your home signed-in using the same iCloud account. So you’ll be able to tap to pair to your iPad, Apple Watch, or Mac as soon as you’ve set them up with your smartphone – a very useful feature for anyone who constantly flits between different devices.
Amazon has slashed a very generous £30 off the price of Apple AirPods, bringing the price from £159 down to £130.48.

If you’d rather not wait around for delivery (although Amazon Prime members will get their AirPods delivered next day) you can reserve a pair of AirPods from your local Currys PC World for only a tiny bit more than the Amazon deal. The deal is also available to buy online with free shipping to your home address.

There’s a staggering amount of technology packed into these lightweight earbuds. As such, discounts are pretty rare. That’s why these discounts are so good. The price drop is available from Amazon, that means Prime members will be able to get free next-day delivery on the ‘buds. So, if you order today, you could be listening to your music without untangling the wires on the way to work tomorrow.
And if you want the wireless charging case, which lets you drop the earbuds onto any standard Qi-compatible charger to top-up the case and the earbuds inside, Amazon has also dropped the price of that. Apple charges £199 for the pair with the wireless charging case, but you can currently pick them up from Amazon UK as part of the Black Friday sales for as little as £158.99.
That’s a saving of £40, which is very generous for an Apple product that’s less than a year-old.
