Currently, the lowest advertised price for Apple Airpods Pro is a sale at Walmart where you can grab a pair for $197.00. With these premium Apple earbuds, you get great sound, comfort, and highly effective noise cancellation.
Sure, Apple just released the AirPods 3 for $179.99, but with this sale, for less than $20 extra, you get the better-sounding Pro model that is also far better at reducing distracting outside noise.
Of course, choosing between the new AirPods 3 and AirPods Pro involves matters of personal preference. The Pro achieves better audio performance partly because it offers a tight seal with your ear canal. By contrast, AirPods 3 are similar to their predecessors in that they don't seal at all. But. this is actually preferred, for example by people who jog in busy areas and want to maintain situational awareness.
For a music or movie lover, or a discerning gamer, or really anyone who wants to hear fine detail, even if they are in a noisy space, there is nothing quite like the combination of quality sealed in-ear monitors and active noise canceling to create a personal listening space anywhere. And that's what AirPods Pro offers.
AirPods Pro earns its place among the best True Wireless IEM-style earbuds in their price range, regardless of brand, and this is true even when not on sale. Unless you explicitly do not want noise-canceling and better sound, at the sale price of $199.99, they are an easy choice over the new AirPods 3.
