Found a good deal on AirPods but wonder if it's a scam
I'm in the market for some new earbuds, preferably ones with a noise canceling option. I was doing some quick googling and found some for $94 but I don't know if it's a scam or not.

I'd post the site but I doubt any of you would click on it. At least I wouldn't anyway. But Google AirPods Pro and click shopping. It's the first one you see.

What you dudes think when you see a deal way too good to be true?

Sounds scammy for AirPods Pro. Also my left bud recently had a rattling noise that Apple replaced for free. Could be that one or both have this known issue and your have to pay 90$ to get one or both replaced.

It’s probably just the regular ones

I decided to squeeze the trigger. If it's a scam, I'm protected by Paypal. But as soon as I did it, the email I got was "you paid $104.00 to.." and then there was a bunch of Chinese lettering.

So longstory short, I guess i'll enjoy the free corona that inevitably comes with the package I get in 4-6 weeks.

Most likely they’re AirPod knockoffs but still could be good. The AirPod and AirPod pros are made in China anyways so we all are getting it!

I bought some knockoff AirPods. Finally realized it when trying to access the specialized settings in the Bluetooth portion of my iPhone. Didn’t realize it until 3 months or so after purchasing and PayPal didn’t reimburse me. The box looked perfect, AirPods were perfect, just that little software part that can’t be copied (iPhone recognizes it is an AirPod and not a normal Bluetooth headphones)

re: Found a good deal on AirPods but wonder if it's a scam
About 2 months ago my dad was shopping for a specific HP printer. He googled the printer and one of the first three sites in the shopping results was a sketchy website that had the printer $100 off. He didn't want to deal with the hassle of it being a scam, but he very much wanted the discount. He called Best Buy and told them about what he found, and how he preferred to buy from them. They ended up price matching the sketchy site for him. Needless to say I was impressed.
