The best AirPods Black Friday deals 2022

Updated Aug 9, 2022 - Low prices today and every other day of the year.

Will there be a Black Friday sale for AirPods?

Black Friday deals on Airpods this year should be about the same as any other year where you might find discounts between 10-25% depending on which model you’re looking for. For example, last year we saw Amazon drop their prices on the AirPods 2 from $129 to $99 for a $30 or 23% discount. On the other hand, the newer AirPods 3 model only saw a 16% discount from $179 to $149 on popular retail sites.

On Back Market, you can find top deals on refurbished AirPods, and you don't even have to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to get them. We've got superior deals on AirPods available 365 days a year. Here’s how our refurbished AirPod prices compare to new retail or Black Friday sales:

It's important to make the difference between used and refurbished: Refurbished AirPods have been tested, reprocessed, cleaned, and disinfected by certified refurbishment experts — you could call it renewed.

When you purchase a pair of renewed AirPods, you're getting an item that works and looks as good as new, but for a fraction of the price of buying new. To give you even more peace of mind, all items on Back Market are backed by a 1-year warranty and 30 days to change your mind.

Are the Black Friday AirPods Pro really worth it?

There are always pros and cons: Of course, the AirPods Pro are pretty cool. They're tiny, but still offer a strong sound, and charging works pretty much by itself. However, like any Apple product, they're not exactly cheap, and frankly, other brands like JBL, Bose, and Sony offer the same or even better quality for less money.

🍏 As a real Apple fan, you can't do without the AirPods, though, of course. Luckily, there are AirPods at low prices on Black Friday (and every day). On Back Market, you can find deals up to 70% less compared to buying new.

What Bluetooth headphones can I buy instead of Apple AirPods?

AirPods weren't the first Bluetooth headphones, and since their release, the selection has only grown. Beats by Dre Earbuds, Sony, JBL, and Bose are great alternatives that are not only on a similar level quality-wise as the AirPods, but you'll also find more selection, as well as cheaper prices, with these brands. Just check out our wireless earbuds deals and then decide which headphones are right for you!

AirPods or AirPods Pro: We solve your dilemma

The design of the latest Apple models is all about the AirPods: The slot for the headphones as we know it will disappear and share the same charging port from now on. This was less well-received by most Apple users, but nonetheless, Apple AirPods are really practical for this case.

When we talk about the different types of AirPods you can find, you should know that the AirPods 2 are one of the most affordable models available today. They have two microphones with beamforming technology and a great battery life that allows up to 5 hours of music without interruption. If you're wondering if you can use it with devices other than Apple, the answer is yes. Thanks to the H1 chip, you can connect to your MacBook or iPhone, and to other devices via Bluetooth 5.0. You can buy it on Back Market for usually just under $100.

👉  Our verdict: If you're looking for earbuds for everyday use and don't mind sacrificing certain features, we recommend the AirPods 2, which don't have much of a difference compared to the AirPods Pro and are more competitively priced.

Maybe the AirPods Max are right for you

On the other hand, if you want a more professional device, we recommend the AirPods Max, which offers 8 microphones for active noise cancellation and 3 microphones for voice recording, among other features. But the most interesting thing compared to the other models is the battery life: according to the manufacturer, you can have up to 20 hours of audio and video playback or conversations on a single charge. You can usually find them starting at around $410 on Back Market.
