Rare AirPods Pro deal sees them drop under $200 as Walmart takes on Prime Day

AirPods Pro prime day deals

Walmart has just landed a pre-emptive strike against Amazon Prime Day by launching its own deals. And with Amazon's site currently listing the AirPods Pro as sold out, this new deal from Walmart really is an absolute winner for everyone in the US. We have found an equivalent deal for those of you in the UK too.

Originally releasing at $249, Walmart already had an AirPods Pro deal running at $219, but it's gone even better today with this headline offer. If you're in the UK, we've got your back with another deal, as Amazon UK actually does have them in stock for a very tempting £187.99 (opens in new tab) down from £250.

Offering a dramatic upgrade over the standard AirPods, these immensely popular wireless buds are the best headphones for pairing with your iPad or iPhone, and this is a price you really shouldn't miss if you're already in the Apple ecosystem.

The AirPods Pro are the most advanced in-ear AirPods yet and feature active noise-cancellation and an improved fit, which sets them apart from the regular AirPods. A free firmware update that came late last year added 'spatial audio' features that replicate surround sound which is great if you watch a lot of movie/TV content on your Apple devices, and it adds more depth to music too. As for battery life, you'll get around 4.5 hours of tunes between charges. 

Meanwhile, the wireless charging case can hold around another 20 hours of charge for you to keep the AirPods topped up between visits to the wall charger.
