The Apple AirPods are in short supply. Best Buy offers the $159.99 AirPods with a catch in the fine print.

Apple is not able to catch up with the demand for the AirPods. The little white wireless earbuds are hard to come by right from the start. Unveiled in September of 2016, Apple had to postpone the release from October to December. The first AirPods went on sale on December 13, 2016.

Customers who order the AirPods now at the Apple online shop face a 6 week shipping timeframe. Best Buy just posted a Tweet about the AirPods point to the AirPods product page on Best Buy offers the AirPods for purchase, but a closer look reveals that the shipping timeframe is 4 weeks. "Order today to secure yours. ships by 6/10/2017." That's a bit misleading, but still two weeks better than ordering at Apple.

AirPods look strange, but are a big technological achievement with automatic connection, noise cancelling and a 24-hour battery life. One big drawback though is that the AirPods are not sweat-proof. They are not usable for workout or running. The alternative from Apple are the PowerBeats3 wireless earbuds that are water resistant, currently on sale for $129.99.

To find AirPods in stock online, shoppers can use our The Tracker app, but pay close attention to the shipping timeframes. The market prices for the AirPods on are above $215.
