Amazon does sell real AirPods. Both the AirPods 1 and the AirPods 2 when bought new, come sealed in the original Apple packaging. Happy customers have received their earbuds and have been vocal about this in their review for both the AirPods 1 and Airpods 2.
With Black Friday and Cyber Monday just around the corner, picking up a deal on either model of these sleek wireless earbuds would be a great way to kick off your holiday shopping. Rated #1 Best Seller by Amazon, the Airpods 2 make a fantastic stocking stuffer. People absolutely love them, and the 4.4 Rating really shows it.
Amazon also carries Apple’s newest addition to their AirPod line, the AirPods Pro. These too are real AirPods, shipped in Apple’s original packaging. They come with a slew of upgrades and features which the AirPods 1 & 2 are missing.

The Apple AirPods 2 are Apple’s follow up release to the AirPods 1. Though very similar to their predecessor, there are some improvements over the original model.
- 5 hour battery life and wireless charging case
- Quick access to Siri
- Extended Bluetooth range
- Improved audio
- Faster connectivity to devices
- Passive noise cancelling
A note about sound quality. You can use the Airpods 2 with Apple devices and Android devices, via the “AirBattery” app from the Google Play Store. The audio quality on android, is slightly lower than on apple devices due to how the music is saved and stored.
If you have a pair of AirPods 1, we don’t recommend upgrading to the AirPods2. Only upgrade if you really care about the wireless charging capability added to the case.
The Apple AirPods Pro are the newest true wireless earbuds Apple has released. They are here just in time for Black Friday and the holiday season. These newly released earbuds are bursting with AirPods functions that the AirPods 1 & 2 don’t have.
- Active Noise Cancelling and Transparency mode
- Wireless charging case
- 5 hours battery life
- Water resistant
- Interchangeable ear tips
- Squeeze tip instead of tapping
- Improved sound quality
The AirPods Pro features are a massive improvement over its predecessors in all categories other than battery life. Apple listened to its customers and made their new true wireless earbuds with exchangeable ear tips and built active noise cancelling into them.
The new AirPods Pro come standard with the wireless charging case, but see a slight dip in battery life from 5 hours to 4.5 hours. The Pro’s case got a redesign, being slightly wider but also shorter than the previous models. The charging case is still able to hold 24 hours or charge.
The ear tips on the AirPods Pro are removable, and come in 3 different sizes: large, medium, small.
With these changes, the earbuds fit more snuggly in your ears, and help for the seal needed for the active noise cancelling feature.
The earbuds come with 3 modes: off, noise cancelling, and transparency mode. Active noise cancelling mode filters out surrounding sound, giving you a more immersive listening experience. Meanwhile, transparency mode allows you to hear your surroundings when turned on.
The final big change is how you navigate your music. Instead of tapping the earbuds like previous models, you now need to squeeze the stem of the earbud.
- 1 squeeze plays, pauses music, and answers calls.
- 2 squeezes skips forward
- 3 squeezes skips backwards
The volume is controlled through “Hey Siri” and you switch between active noise cancelling and transparency modes by pressing and holding the stem.
The AirPods Pro are a big upgrade to both the AirPods 1 and AirPods 2. If you want a good pair of active noise cancelling earbuds, these are a fantastic option. Alternately, if you want to upgrade from earlier generations, the feature packed Airpods Pro are well worth the money this Black Friday.
