If you missed your chance to get the second-generation AirPods at Amazon at Black Friday pricing last week, you\u2019re in luck! They\u2019re on sale again for $129, down from the $159 you\u2019d normally pay for them at retail. That\u2019s still the lowest price we\u2019ve seen for them to date.\n\nIf you want them with the wireless charging case, you\u2019ll still just pay $169, down from the normal price of $199. That\u2019s not the lowest price we\u2019ve seen for this model, though, and they\u2019ve been hovering around this price at Amazon for over a month now.\nTo clarify, these are not the AirPods Pro\u2014rather, they\u2019re the updated version of the standard AirPods that became such a phenomenon over the last couple of years. The main improvements consist of a faster H1 chip and hands-free Siri, so you can just call out, "Hey, Siri," and Apple\u2019s digital assistant will be at your command.\nHere\u2019s how we wrapped up our review of the second-generation AirPods back in April:\n\nIf you already own a pair of AirPods, you probably shouldn\u2019t upgrade to the latest model. The improvements in switching speed and latency aren\u2019t game-changers, and the ability to use Siri hands-free, while useful, isn\u2019t worth the cost alone. Those who make a lot of long phone calls will love how much longer the battery lasts, but everyone else will notice no real difference in longevity. If you haven\u2019t bought AirPods yet, the improvements in this second-generation model make them a little more compelling.
