Time For A Headphones Upgrade: Looking At The Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) On Sale At Amazon

I have an abusive relationship with headphones.. meaning I usually wear them into the ground. I probably go through about half a dozen pairs each year. I’d like to just buy cheap pairs and treat them as disposable, but I can’t deny I love nice sound quality. I’ve run the spectrum of brands, quality, and prices and I always seem to gravitate back toward Apple-branded headphones… even with the outrageous pricing!

My last couple of pairs of headphones were both the Beats wireless ‘tethered’ in-ear and the Beats+ in-ear buds, which I bought both last year as my primary and backup pairs. The ‘tethered’ were my regular day-to-day pair, and the earbuds were my ‘out and about’ pair. I was scared of making the earbuds my day-to-day because I have a habit of losing them. Well… as of today, my tethered pair is falling apart from wear and tear, and (as respected) I lost one of my earbuds. So… I’m without any way to listen to music on the go. I’ve been trying to find replacement ‘tethered’ headphones but all the colors I’d wear seem to be out of stock or will take at least a week to get to me. And (for some reason) that’s a deal breaker!!!

This morning, I got an alert that both Amazon AND Walmart have the Apple AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) earbuds on sale got $189. I’ve always wanted to own a pair of those, but they’ve always been out of my price range. I can’t imagine buying something so easy for me to lose for $250. But the 24% price drop puts a purchase in the sweet spot. YES, they are earbuds and YES there’s a chance I might lose them like the others. But man… I do want to own them. Yep… I’m buying them.
