The Apple AirPods are hands-down the world’s most popular true wireless earbuds, so it’s no surprise that both Amazon and Walmart ran out of stock just hours after reducing them on Black Friday. All hope is not lost if you missed the chance to pick up a pair of Pods on the cheap on Friday, though: Best Buy is offering the AirPods with Charging Case and AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case for as much as $35 off through Cyber Monday today.

Here’s a look at the pricing:

  • AirPods with Charging Case — $140 ($20 off)
  • AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case$165 ($35 off)

However, we should add that while these Cyber Monday headphone deals are valid through Monday, they could well expire sooner if the retailer’s inventory is depleted ahead of time. So if you want to be in with taking home a pair of Pods at a discount this Black Friday weekend, best head over to Best Buy, add the AirPods that best tickle your fancy (we’d opt for the AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case) to your card, and start punching in your credit card number.

So, which should you go with? As we said before, we’re inclined to side with the AirPods 2 with Wireless Charging Case. Why? Because with the $35 off, they come in at just $5 more than the standard Apple AirPods with Charging Case cost when they aren’t on sale, while adding several much-loved features to the mix, including the option to launch Siri by simply mumbling “Hey, Siri” rather than having to touch a Pod, and double the talk time.

But if you’re shopping on a budget, can live without wireless charging, don’t mind having to tap a Pod to wake Siri, and aren’t fussed about the mere two-hour talk time, then look no further than the Apple AirPods. For everyone else, it’s the AirPods 2. Or maybe even the AirPods Pro, which Amazon is currently offering with $15 off, bringing them down from $249 to just $235, so long as you don’t mind waiting a month or two for them to arrive.
