I’ve never been one to get excited over the latest iPhone release. Instead, I use mine until it’s basically beyond repair. So you can imagine I was initially reluctant to get AirPods, which seemed like a pointless upgrade on an already good product. So what if my earbuds were wired? And so what if everyone else appeared to already own Apple’s most recent creation? I’d walk by other students on campus, see the little white pieces in their ears, and inwardly scoff. Then I was gifted a pair, and life as I knew it, changed for the better. Indeed, Apple is notorious for rolling out electronic gadgets you didn’t even know you needed, and they had me with this one. Apple is also notorious for putting hefty price tags on its merchandise, so when you spot a rare deal, you have to act. Right now, AirPods of multiple generations are on sale at Amazon, and you can be sure they’ll go fast. Read on to see which ones are the best fit for your ears.

These are the OG, no-frills AirPods that, at $100, are quite reasonably priced for their value. Once you connect these to Bluetooth, you're ready for a seamless listening experience on any smart Apple device. I especially love mine for the gym — nothing beats working out without having to lug my phone around or worry about my earbuds getting caught in equipment. These also boast a 24-hour battery life and allow you to easily access Siri.

For an even longer battery life (30 hours with the MagSafe charging case!!), opt for the 3rd Generation AirPods, which sport a design that's contoured to better fit your ears. These are also sweat- and water-resistant, so you don't have to worry about getting caught in the rain and damaging them. Spatial audio technology makes the sound emitted from the AirPods feel as if its coming from all around you. Talk about an immersive experience!

For those who don't mind earphones that go deeper inside the ears, the AirPods Pro are likely the best option. These have all the perks of their predecessors, but they offer complete noise cancellation, so it's just you and the music. A built-in force sensor allows you to switch to transparency mode, which pauses the noise cancellation. Also, you can get these and the 3rd Generations with AppleCare, also currently on sale.

The AirPods Max are all the rage, and now you can get them for under $500. These also feature full noise cancellation, transparency mode, and easy switching between devices. But compared to previous AirPods, the headphone version has a much better sound quality. Additionally, if you dislike the feeling of foreign devices in your ears, you'll enjoy the comfortable, over-ear fit of the AirPods Max (complete with memory foam!). Thanks to their lightweight design, there's no clunkiness, either.
