Apple has finally started sales of the AirPods Pro in India. They are priced at INR 24,900 ($345).
The company had previously announced India as one of the markets where the headphones will be sold but had not revealed the exact launch date. However, as of today, the AirPods Pro can be purchased through authorized retailers offline.
The AirPods Pro is Apple’s newest wireless Bluetooth earbuds. They improve upon the original model by having an in-ear design, active noise cancellation, sweat-resistance and according to the reviews, better sound quality. The standard AirPods will continue selling alongside the new model.
Unfortunately for Indians, Apple products continue to come at a premium over their already high prices in the US. At INR 24,900, the AirPods Pro cost almost a $100 more than the $249 price in the US. It’s also unlikely that they will be discounted any time soon if the previous AirPods are any indication.
Fortunately for Apple, however, the original AirPods were a grand success and it’s likely many users will fork out the extra cash for the new models as well.
