Amazon Canada is a go-to destination for the biggest tech deals and gift ideas. And with Valentine's Day just around the corner, a sale on Apple AirPods might be worth checking out if you still need an awe-inspiring gift.
Right now, select models of Apple AirPods are marked down on the site, and are up to 17 per cent off regular price. That brings the price down to $148 for the ultra popular Apple AirPods (2nd Generation), which have earned more than 11,000 five-star reviews.
For those who haven’t made the switch to the wireless and rechargeable ear buds, now's the perfect time to snag a pair AirPods on sale.
Your AirPod wireless charging case holds multiple full charges for your ear buds and has more than 24 hours of battery life. Each charge delivers up to five hours of play time and three hours of talk time; when not in use, they should be kept in the charging case to ensure you never miss a call, a podcast or a song.
Since the AirPods are paired to your iOS device (like your iPad, iPhone or MacBook) you’ll receive a push notification when your battery is running low. When your charging case battery pack is low, simply connect the case to a power source using the included Lightening cord.
'Sound quality is great'
These Apple AirPods have an impressive 4.7-star rating on Amazon based on more than 13,000 customer reviews. Shoppers have commended AirPods on their universal fit and ability to access to Siri. AirPods have received rave reviews for their “seamless connection” and “great sound quality.”
One shopper found that the AirPods gave them “the freedom to multi-task" that other headphones couldn't.
“They are truly life-changing,” added another, who also noted that the “sound quality is great" and "charging time is low” on these versatile earbuds.
Although there are thousands of glowing reviews for AirPods, there are some things to consider before you buy. Some shoppers have said that AirPods weren't the most comfortable for their ears, while others said they prefer having a true-headphone experience to cover the ear and help block background nose while using the AirPods in public spaces — especially since this version doesn't feature noise-cancelling technology.
If you’re a loyal Apple product user, you’ll probably enjoy the benefits of wireless ear buds that allow you to easily pair with multiple devices with ease. However, if you're looking for noise-cancelling capabilities, or don't love the feeling of earbud-style headphones, these might not be for you.
Luckily, two other models of the wireless earbuds are also on sale right now on Amazon
