With the exception of food, water, and lots of hand sanitizer, good headphones are one of the most important things you can have during quarantine. (Yes, even more than a sourdough starter.)
Whether you're hosting a video conference privately, blowing up your pump-up playlist the next time you run outdoors, or just want to get some rest from your loud roommate, the right couple can make your everyday life a little more manageable. If you're looking for a great couple to wear when you're spending the foreseeable future indoors, you're in luck. Verizon is currently discounting two of Apple's most popular earphones: the AirPods and the AirPods Pro.
There is a reason why everyone you know own these ridiculously popular earphones. Apple has successfully transformed its intuitive technology and sleek design ̵
With an intuitive H1 headphone chip, you can easily sync the second generation AirPods with your phone. Simply pair your buds with your smartphone once and they will automatically turn on and connect each time you pull them out of the shell. The headphone chip also uses optical sensors and motion accelerometers to determine if they're actually in your ears. The AirPods are also Siri compatible, so you can answer all your burning questions with the words "Hey, Siri".
While the battery life of the AirPods offers up to five hours of listening time, thanks to the additional wireless charger it is possible to power your buds on the go. While second-generation AirPods typically cost $ 199.99, Verizon currently sells them for $ 30 less.
If you want to improve your listening experience a few levels, check out Apple's AirPods Pro. While this pair looks the same as Apple's standard AirPods, it does have some important improvements.
With three silicone tips that snap into place, the AirPods Pro have a custom fit to keep out external noise. According to Verizon, it is the only in-ear headphone with active noise cancellation that continuously adapts to your ears. Translation: You can finally have the peace you were looking for. Thanks to a battery life of 24 hours (!) And an expanded mesh microphone connection, which is particularly useful in windy weather, you can use these headphones literally anytime and anywhere.
Of course, Apple AirPods Pro are a little more expensive . While they usually cost $ 249.99, you can currently buy them for $ 20 less. Sure, spending $ 230 on earphones isn't cheap, but if you think about how much you're actually using, the investment is worth it.
Regardless of which pair you buy, one thing is certain: Today is a really a good day to invest in new headphones.
