Apple’s new AirPods Pro 2 with USB-C/MagSafe Charging Case have returned to their all-time low price of $199.99 on Amazon, down from $249.00. We haven’t seen this deal since Prime Day earlier in the month, and right now the AirPods Pro 2 have an estimated arrival date between October 31 and November 4.

If you want a bit more of a discount, and don’t need USB-C, Amazon has the AirPods Pro 2 with Lightning/MagSafe Charging Case for $189.00, down from $249.00. Stock on this model appears to be a bit strained, and we’ve seen the discount come and go frequently this morning. If you don’t see it, be sure to check back later.
There are a few minor changes to the AirPods Pro 2 besides the addition of USB-C, including additional dust resistance and support for lossless audio with the Vision Pro headset. Apple doesn’t sell the USB-C/MagSafe Charging Case separately, so if you want USB-C support you’ll have to purchase a full new set of earbuds.
