SAVE $19.02: Typically $549, Apple’s sky blue AirPods Max are on sale on Amazon for “just” $529.98 as of May 25.


As my colleague Leah Stodart said in her pre-Prime Day rundown, we weren’t counting on seeing a huge discount on the AirPods Max during Amazon’s big shopping event next month — Apple’s fancy over-ear headphones are still in such high demand (despite a borderline ridiculous $550 price tag) that retailers don’t necessarily need to lure in buyers with a deal. 

But now we’re getting a little more hopeful: Amazon just put the sky blue AirPods Max on sale for $529.98, a $20 savings that takes a little bit of the edge off their sky-high MSRP. (That’s their biggest discount yet, for those of you keeping track at home.)

This makes a Prime Day AirPods Max deal seem way more likely, but do keep in mind that a Prime Day AirPods Max deal has a very good chance of selling out fast — you might as well grab a pair now while Amazon’s inventory is still abundant.

Introduced in mid-December (and swiftly turned into a meme), the AirPods Max mark Apple’s very first attempt at non-Beats-branded over-ear headphones. Tim Cook and company were mostly successful, says Mashable tech guru Brenda Stolyar: While they may be a bit uncomfortable for glasses-wearers and people with smaller heads, she wrote, stellar noise cancellation and an H1 chip for effortless pairing on top of “excellent audio quality, easy-to-use controls, and good battery life” make them a dang good pair of headphones for anyone who can afford them.

Hit the blue button below to snag a pair for under $530 while you still can — they didn’t last long at this price at Walmart.
