'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards.

The Apple AirPods Pro needs no introduction. Take a pause at your local cafe and you'll see these white earpieces dangling on civilians left and right. With active noise-cancellation, a superb audio quality that hits the right notes in the lows, mids, and highs, and seamless integration with iPhones, there's no surprise that the two-year-old AirPods Pro still sits atop ZDNet's best wireless earbuds of 2022 list. And for the next four hours, you can pick up a pair for yourself at a $60 discount, which brings the $249 AirPods down to a mere $179. It's real, it's a great deal, and it won't be in stock for long.

ZDNet's Adrian Kingsley-Hughes said it best, "Everything about the AirPods Pro is beautifully engineered. They are small, sleek, comfortable, have great audio output while at the same time doing a magical job of shutting out the rest of the world, and are insanely easy to use."

And for a (very) limited time, Woot, an Amazon company, has the Apple AirPods Pro discounted to just $179 ($70 off) -- the lowest we've seen the wireless earbuds go since Black Friday. You will need an Amazon Prime membership to qualify for the deal and it is limited to one unit per customer. Woot estimates a delivery time between February 10 and February 14.

What's certain is that you only have until 12 a.m. ET or before these go out of stock to take advantage of the offer.
