Amazon Prime Day was a great time to get cheap audio equipment, especially earbuds and headphones, for cheap. Headphone technology has improved dramatically over the past year. Average battery life per charge goes from just four hours to over six or eight per charge in earbuds. With over-ear headphones, expecting more than 30 hours per charge is out of the question. Additionally, noise cancellation technology has made leaps and bounds in both headphones and earbuds. So if you haven̵

There aren’t any Amazon Prime Day deals yet as Amazon Prime Day has not started and we’re not even entirely sure what date Amazon picked to sell after having moved it from its normal July date. However, if you are looking for headphones or earbuds right now and can’t wait, these are the best deals right now.
What to expect from Prime Day headphones
While we like to keep our fingers crossed for deep discounts on the latest products, you may find even better deals on personal audio devices that may be a generation old but still awesome. Older products are always treated with the most significant discounts, but there are limited quantity flash deals where discounts are often reduced to the lowest prices you can expect.
For example, when Sony announces the successor to the hugely popular WH-1000XM3 headphones in the new XM4, it is not surprising that the previous generation is seeing discounts as Sony eliminates older inventory.
While we’re not sure yet which headphones are going to be heavily discounted, we can assume there will be a mix of household names and some great buds that you may not have heard of. We were surprised by the performance of lesser-known companies like Earfun, Soundpeats, and Avantree that may not attract your eyes with brand power but still make great products.
So while you should be prepared to get limited time deals on headphones like the Apple Airpods and Airpods Pro, Samsung Galaxy Buds, Google Pixel Buds 2, Jabra headphones and buds, or Bose over-ear headphones, you may want to too be ready to take advantage of sales from companies from the above to 1More, Tranya, JLab and others. The market is full of excellent earbuds from a wide variety of options. Also note, however, that not all headphones from every brand are good. So make sure you cross-reference for sales using our robust library of headphone test reports.
Should I shop on Prime Day or wait until Black Friday?
If you’re looking to invest in new audio equipment, you don’t have to wait until the end of November. We don’t expect any big discounts on Black Friday compared to Prime Day. It’s also wiser to get your vacation shopping out of the way earlier so you don’t get stuck on Black Friday with a severe shipping delay. You also don’t want to worry about your top pick selling out on Prime Day and not getting supplies for Black Friday. Take advantage of these Prime Day headphone deals now and save yourself the hassle of worrying about whether your new AirPods will arrive in time for Christmas.
