Apple AirPods are on sale for $ 100, but there is a catch

My refurbished AirPods Pro arrived in mint condition. Your mileage may vary.

Problem: You want Apple AirPods, but you don’t want to pay $ 159 to get them. No problem: Woot was only renewed today, and while supplies last AirPods with charging case (2nd generation) for $ 100.

Hang on: updated? Yes, that’s the catch. In this case, “Rating A updated” and “repaired, cleaned and tested”, so in terms of appearance and performance should be quite close to new. They come with a 90-day Woot guarantee, enough time to make sure everything works properly.

For comparison, Amazon is currently selling new AirPods for $ 129, hit the middle between price by price and this adaptation contract. That makes the decision even harder, if you ask me.

Woot has also been updated AirPods Pro with refill case for $ 160, which is $ 89 lower than the regular price. Coincidentally, Best Buy had the same contract yesterday under a now expired flash sales.

Last year, wondering if it would work well or be visibly used (and gross), I bought a pair of refurbished AirPods Pro from an eBay retailer. Price paid: 168 USD. The end result: They looked like new and have served me well ever since.

Your mileage can vary, of course.

Truth be told, I really like AirPods – both varieties. But I also found it three great AirPods Pro alternatives that cost less, and compiled by CNET’s David Carnoy a large list of wireless headphones at a price lower than AirPods.

My question to you: assuming it’s a new condition, would you be willing to buy refurbished earrings? Or is the thought of it too nervous?
