AirPod Pro pricing

My wife has indicated that she’d like a pair for Mother’s Day. I see that they’re available for $180 all over right now. Is this the standard street price, or are the retailers just matching each other for the time being? I see that they’ve been available for even less in the recent past, but is the current pricing more of a “standard” or will they go back up and hang closer to the $250 msrp? In other words, should I buy now, or wait for another dip?

$180 is OK for this time of year.

Cheapest I ever saw during xmas was $140, but required some hoop jumping. I paid $160, about the cheapest normal "sale" price there was.

Waiting won't do you much good now.

The sale prices are pretty much gone, and yes $180 is pretty much the norm for the time being.

Though something may pop up, I don't think you should count on any significant price drop until a new model is released, a big shopping holiday rolls 'round, or you buy them at $180.

The fit of AirPods Pro is different from AirPods and AirPods 3, so make sure your wife is happy with the fit early on, so they can be returned if she's not happy with them.

AirPods fit me very well, AirPods Pro hurt my ears big time, AirPods 3 fit better than the Pro and not quite as good as AirPods.

Thanks. My big concern is that they shoot back up to $250 everywhere and don’t come back down in the next three months. I guess I’ll just go ahead and get them to be safe.

Regarding the fit, my wife is more interested in the pros vs non pros because of the different tips. Good advice on doing a quick return if they don’t fit well right away. We’ll definitely follow it.

Now that I’ve typed that second paragraph, I’ll make extra sure that we’d still be well within the return period by the time I give them too her. He’ll, I might just give them to her now.

It’ll be more like $250 when the next version comes out. “Find My” is built in, with tiny speakers added to the case to make the location beeping sound. Or so the rumor sites say.
