Apple's AirPods have become a standard bearer for true wireless earbuds. Look around next time you're on a bus or train and you'll find someone wearing them, and for good reason. Anyone on the market would have had to consider them and this new price makes them an even more enticing deal. 

That's right the Apple AirPods Pro 2 are $189 at Best Buy, a great price for the successor to some of the best true wireless earbuds out there. These buds can cut out some serious external noise (while the standard AirPods don't offer any noise cancelling), helping you immerse yourself in your favourite songs, not the annoying conversations of those around you.

If you can't hear your regular AirPods over life's loud noises, then the in-ear fit and Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) of the Pro model is for you. The second-gen buds boast even more ANC, longer battery life and that signature Apple sound.  

Of course, earbuds are nothing without quality audio and the AirPods Pro absolutely offers a step up from standard AirPods in this regard but the wireless earbuds market is not without its competition. Definitely check out the Sony WF-1000XM4, to see which tickles your fancy, but you can't go wrong with the AirPods Pro. If you have an Android phone, you don't need to worry about separate cables either as these are the newer USB-C charging buds. 

iOS 17 has made the AirPods Pro even better if you have an iPhone. The latest operating system improves the device switching and Adaptive Audio experience of the AirPods Pro. For instance, talking will now lower the volume of your music while a personalized volume feature will optimize sound levels to your regular environment. 

Those who live with buds in their ears will appreciate the inclusion of four different tip sizes to get the perfect fit for comfort and sound. You'll never have naked ears again. Battery life jumps from 4.5 hours in the original AirPods Pro to a much more useful 6 hours with a total of 30 hours stored in the case.
