Apple announced new AirPods 2 yesterday, which bring new features such as always-on “Hey Siri”, better performance and battery life, to go with an optional Wireless Charging Case.
If you’re not ready to drop some coin on AirPods 2, which retails for $269 CAD with the new Wireless Charging Case, you can save on the original AirPods over at Best Buy Canada, as they are now on clearance for $20 off at $199.99. As of writing, stock is showing as available online with free shipping.
Apple has AirPods 2 available with the regular charging case for $219.99. You may be better off spending an extra $20 to get the latest 2019 technology:
Powered by the all-new Apple H1 headphone chip, AirPods deliver a faster and more stable wireless connection to your devices — up to 2x faster when switching between active devices, and a 1.5x faster connection time for phone calls. The H1 chip also drives voice-enabled Siri access and delivers up to 30 percent lower gaming latency. So whether you’re playing games, listening to music or enjoying podcasts, you’ll experience higher-quality sound.
But if you’re all about saving money, then the first generation AirPods are still an option for now (your kids won’t care as long as they have a pair to ‘flex’ with).
