Apple's big 2019 launch event is now firmly in the rear-view mirror. And if you were putting off buying a pair of AirPods in anticipation of a new model with active noise cancellation or those rumored over-ear noise-canceling headphones, you'll probably have to hold out until 2020. (If you can't wait that long, check out Amazon's new Echo Buds, shipping later this month, Microsoft's new Surface Buds, available now -- or our current faves, Sony's WH-1000XM3.)

But if you're set on picking up a pair of AirPods right now, here's the good news: The current-generation model has been selling at a discount for months. Plenty of retailers are selling the model with the wireless charging case for $169 and with the standard case for around $145. (Depending on your proximity to a Micro Center, you may be able to pick up the wireless version for $150 -- but in-store only, not online.)

Though it's hard to find brand-new first-gen AirPods at this point, there are other wireless headphones in Apple's portfolio available for under list price, too. The PowerBeats3 Wireless headphones cost $200 when you buy from Apple, but Walmart has them for $92. The $200 Beats Solo3 headphones are currently available at Best Buy for $150

One thing to consider: Apple offers free custom engraving on all AirPods cases when you buy from it directly. You'll get no such offer from third-party retailers such as Amazon.
