Price drop: The AirPods Pro are the cheapest they've been all year -- just $195!

Spring is on the way, which means you might be in search of brand-new earbuds to keep you rocking as you run errands, walk the dog or work out at the gym (hello, New Year's resolutions!). Why not pick up a pair of those Apple AirPods Pro you've been eyeing? Another reason to make that move right now: They're down to a low $195 (from $249) at Amazon.

Active Noise Cancellation blocks outside noise, so you can immerse yourself in music, podcasts or whatever makes you happy. Get up to 24-hours of listening with one charge. Plus, this model is waterproof and sweat resistant.

How do the AirPods Pro compare to previous models?

Good question. For one, they’re customizable. Big ears? Small ears? No problem. Whereas previous AirPod iterations subscribed to a one-size-fits-all approach, these state-of-the-art Pros provide a special 'Ear Tip Fit Test' so you can learn which size is best for you and your unique ear shape.

Apple also redesigned these buds with a silicone tip for a comfy fit so they’ll feel better in your ear and won’t slip out halfway through a workout.

Unlike previous versions of the iconic buds, the AirPods Pro feature active noise cancelling to block out nearly all ambient and background chatter.

"The noise cancelling is spectacular," wrote one customer. "I use them when I'm working in my machine shop and I can hear everything even at lower volume. The spatialize is really good too. Track head movements to feel more theatrical. I don't use this feature much, but it works as advertised. Charging case is great, charges quickly, and slips easily into the mini pocket in your pants."

Battery life

The AirPods Pro are also a revelation in the battery life department — 5.5 hours compared to the previous model’s 3.5 hours. And you can drop them in their included wireless charging case to juice them up for an additional 24 hours of power.

Ease of use for Apple lovers

The new earbuds offer a seamless wireless syncing experience with just about any Apple device — including the iPhone, iPad, MacBook, iMac and more.

But these buds' utility extends way beyond the Appleverse: They'll also pair with Android smartphones or tablets, not to mention Windows 10 laptops and desktops via Bluetooth.

"I bought these Apple AirPods Pro for my daughter for Christmas a year ago and she is still in love with them. She uses them so much and can't stop raving about them. The noise cancellation is out of this world and has saved her many times such as on an airplane, waiting in a noisy area, trying to get to sleep, etc," said one happy parent. "Of course she uses them for listening to movies, music, etc. and she doesn't know how she lived without them. Great product!"

Apple's AirPods Pro are a big step up in audio quality. And with the bells and whistles that the entry-level AirPods just don’t have, we think they’re well worth it.
