“Apple’s AirPods were available to arrive before Christmas for a very short period of time. As shipping times have slipped to January through Apple, options to get them at extremely inflated prices have popped up predictably quickly by scavengers sellers on eBay,” Michael Potuck reports for 9to5Mac.

“While some eBay sellers have listed authentic AirPods in the somewhat more reasonable $230-$500 range,” Potuck reports, “some of the pricier options are giving a pre-Christmas arrival guarantee.”

“The highest asking price we have seen so far is $1,590. I suppose the seller just figures he only needs one buyer,” Potuck reports. ” One thing is for sure, this long AirPods delay has created quite the holiday demand!”
