We know that these are quite expensive and if you want one of these you shouldn’t miss this deal. Wireless headphones from Best Buy can be bought for $25 off their current $159 price.
iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus were unveiled at the annual iPhone event in September, along with the announcement of wireless headphones in the form of AirPods. There had been rumors about this gadget for years, and the pair dropped the usual 3.5mm headphone port. Namely, AirPods were supposed to be launched as early as October, but got delayed until mid-December and were successfully sold instantly after being offered in Apple’s online store.
„A Run-Away Success“
Apple’s AirPods were described by Tom Cook in late December as a „run-away success“ while he was speaking to CNBC and he gave his word that the company was producing more as fast as they could. Limited supplies of AirPods are being shipped to the retail stores at the moment, and Apple lists a six-week shipping time for orders on its site. The wireless headphones are only offered online at the moment, whereas AirPods are currently being sold by major U. S. carriers and big box retailers.
Should you want to but an AirPod, you may consider a limited time deal from Best Buy. Namely, if you are paying with Visa Checkout, the retailer is offering $25 off your $100+ purchase from its online store. With this discount, the price of AirPods comes down to $134.99.
Namely, AirPods look identical as the corded EarPods, only without the wires. Apple says setting up and using wireless headphones has never been easier. You open the case with a simple tap, there are sensors to detect when AirPods are in your ears, and the music will be automatically played or paused. If you tap twice you activate Siri, your personal assistant who will help you with your music, or calls or any other usual task.
