How to get AirPods up to 50% off during Black Friday (and all year round)?

Updated on 30 October, 2023 - There's no need to wait around for Black Friday AirPods deals. At Back Market, Black Friday is a day like any other. Find AirPods up to 50% off every day, all year round.

Will there be any discounts on AirPods during Black Friday 2023?

It’s always the same thing shopping on Black Friday. You look for the best deals titled "AirPods Black Friday". And then the best you can find is a simple £20 off offer... If you want Apple's new AirPods, you won't be able to find any ground breaking deals this year either. UNLESS you're willing to look at the second-hand and refurbished market! Indeed, you'll find much better deals every day, all year round!

The only problem is that used AirPods aren’t very hygienic. So that's why we suggest you buy refurbished AirPods! They’re priced as low as used AirPods, but have been quality-checked, cleaned and disinfected in our partners' factories.

So no need to wait for Black Friday 2023! Shop refurbished now, and you’ll be able to find the best discount on new products. It’s a winning combination for your wallet and the planet. Plus, all our refurbished products come with a 12-month warranty and 30-day returns.

If you really want to compare the price of refurbished from our website to what's in the market for new currently, then we've handpicked some deals worth looking into. However, we're sure you'll soon realise it's no where near as good as refurbished deals (prices checked on 30/10/2023):

Will the price of Airpods go down during Black Friday?

Using previous years as a benchmark, it’s unlikely that there will be any significant discounts on Apple's new AirPods on Black Friday. But if you look at the second-hand and refurbished market, you might be able to find deals offering nearly 30% off AirPods and AirPods Pro (and that's every day, all year round)! At Back Market, you don't have to wait for AirPods deals on Black Friday. We offer incredible prices at any time of the year!

MacBook Black Friday deals, iPhone Black Friday deals and iPad Black Friday deals are also history...At Back Market, you get access to great deals, 365 days a year.

Are the Black Friday AirPods Pro worth it?

In our opinion, you shouldn't spend more than £200 on AirPods. The Black Friday AirPods may be at these prices, but we'd advise you to check out the refurbished AirPods. Refurbished, they have been tested, inspected and repaired by our partner factories and are a sustainable alternative to new products. Rather than buying a new product, you are giving a second life to a device that is as functional as a new one. They are also available at up to 30% off every day, all year round. So you'll have plenty of time to buy later. If, on the other hand, you want to spend less, you'll find wireless headphones from the likes of Sennheiser, JBL and Sony that offer comparable quality to Apple's AirPods.

Which wireless headphones can I buy instead of the Apple AirPods?

Consider buying the Sony WF-1000 XM3 wireless earphones or if you want a pair of Bluetooth noise-cancelling earphones that perform similarly to Apple's AirPods. They offer many of the same features, and most people agree they even have better sound quality – all at a more competitive price!

And what about the AirPods Pro? Is Black Friday the right time to buy them?

The AirPods Pro (2nd gen) were released in the UK on 23 September 2022. New, you'll find them for £229. At Back Market, you can buy them right now for slightly less for £216 (price checked on 30/10/2023). 

What's the difference with the AirPods 2?

The AirPods Pro represent a premium upgrade over the standard AirPods. Most notably, you’re now able to enable active noise cancellation (ANC), and customize the fit of the earphones a little with different-sized silicone tips. Sound quality is also improved, the AirPods Pro being louder and fuller than the AirPods 2. Plus, in addition to Siri, you can easily control the AirPods Pro by squeezing the stems to pause music, skip tracks, switch ANC modes and take calls. 

While the battery life takes a bit of a hit (4.5 hours + 19 additional hours from the case compared to 5+24 hours in the AirPods 2), these are the better option for anyone that wants to use their wireless earphones to exercise since they now include IPX-4 water-resistance and a more secure fit in-ear.
