Upgrading to wireless headphones just got a little bit cheaper.
Apple doesn't frequently discount their products, but for Prime Day 2019, they're celebrating with 10% off the latest model of AirPods and their corresponding charging case.
The sleek white buds pair seamlessly between other Apple devices, and provide the same quality as the standard Apple headphones, but they can be charged wirelessly using a Qi-compatible wireless charging mat.
Another model is available for 9% off — but they're cheaper overall. However, the charging case isn't wireless, so you'll need to remember to plug it in.
They've even changed my morning routine. Every morning, I pop the AirPods in and listen to a podcast as I get ready. I'm able to move around freely, do my makeup, pack my bag and bounce around the apartment listening to some of my favorites without waking up my husband in the next room. For that, he is incredibly grateful.
But they really come in handy if you take public transportation. I'm able to sneak into tight spaces without worrying about a headphone cord snagging on a stray bag. The other week, I watched as a passenger struggled to detangle her headphones from a stranger's backpack and felt pity as she jumped off the train and said, "You can keep them."
That'd never happen with my AirPods!
I'm not the only fan around the TODAY offices. Jen Birkhofer, our director of e-commerce, has been singing their praises since 2018.
"I am obsessed with my Apple AirPods — they are so easy to use," she said. "Because they're wire-free, I thought I would lose them, so I bought a cover and clip that hooks onto my gym bag, and I haven't lost them yet! FYI: If you do lose one, you can use Find My Phone to locate it."
Jen's even made a convert out of other family members.
"Even my dad, who rocked an AM/FM radio Walkman for about 20 years, loves his AirPods and runs with them almost daily."
So there you have it. You're never too young or too old to cut the cord.
