Retailers are slashing dollars of the AirPods and Google Pixel Buds this weekend. So if you're looking for the best wireless earbuds on a budget, listen up. 

Amazon continues to offer the AirPods 2 for $129. That's $30 off their normal price of $159 and the second-lowest price to date. If you have room in your budget, Amazon also offer the AirPods Pro for $197 ($$52 off). These are some of the best headphone deals of the season.

As an alternative, Amazon also offers the AirPods with Wireless Charging Case for $159.98 ($39 off)

Apple AirPods Pro: was $249 now $197 @ Amazon
Currently, $52 off, the AirPods Pro are the Editor's Choice for the best wireless earbuds to buy. We rate them 4 out of 5 stars for their decent noise cancellation, good sound quality, and comfortable, sweat-resistant design. 

Apple's AirPods are among the best wireless earbuds to buy. They feature water-and-sweat resistance, hands-free Siri, and transparency mode. Meanwhile, the AirPods Pro are among the audio industry's best noise-cancelling headphones

Although we didn't test the standard AirPods, in our AirPods Pro review, we praised their comfortable design and instant pairing with Apple devices. We also liked their clear sound and noise cancellation. We gave the AirPods Pro 4.5 out of 5-stars and the Editor's Choice award co-sign. 

As an alternative, you can get the Google Pixel Buds 2 for just $129 ($50 off) at Walmart and Best Buy. You can also buy them directly from Google Store for the same price.

As we note in our Pixel Buds 2 review, they pack rich, precise audio and wearing comfort into a stylish, durable design. Like AirPods, the Pixel Buds 2 are sweat and water-resistant and deliver crystal clear, call quality. At 0.18 ounces and 0.8 x 0.8 x 0.7 inches each, Pixel Buds are lighter and smaller than the AirPods Pro (0.19 ounces, 1.2 x 0.9 x 0.9 inches).  

These deals may not last long, so don't miss your chance to score today's best audio wearables for less.
