Solitude doesn’t come cheap, but thanks to Prime Day 2019, it’s now a touch lighter on the wallet. That’s right — Amazon has slashed the price of a number of top-rated headphones and earbuds from the likes of Apple, Beats, Bose, and Sony to celebrate the second day of its online shopping bonanza.
Since there’s a limited amount of stock set aside for the best deals and only around 18 hours left of Prime Day itself, you’ll need to act fast to bag one. That means time can’t be wasted browsing the entire catalog — a matter of seconds can be the difference between snagging a bargain and missing out.
To help you track down the best headphone deals on offer this Prime Day, we’ve rounded up all of the offers that are just too good to miss, with the list including everything from noise-canceling headphones to wireless earbuds. The highlight right now? An $50 discount on the Sony WH-1000XM3.
Best headphone deals for Prime Day
Amazon has been discounting headphones on Prime Day since its inception and, lo and behold, Amazon Prime Day 2019 is no exception, as we are seeing huge savings on headphones from Apple, Bose, Samsung, Sennheiser, and Sony, among others.
As is the case with 4K TVs, it’s the older models that received the largest reductions. That’s not to say the retailer hasn’t shaved a few bucks off the latest versions as well — it has. You just need to know where to find those deals, and that’s where we come in.
Best wireless earbud deals for Prime Day
Prime Day wouldn’t be complete without a sale on a set of wireless earbuds … or a hundred. Again, the biggest savings come in the form of older models, but that’s not such a bad thing: You can’t go wrong with a set of the original Apple AirPods, for example.
How to choose headphones
The secret to scoring a fantastic deal on Prime Day is planning. Decide on the type of headphones you’re after and any must-have features (a set of wireless headphones with noise-canceling on board, for example) before starting your search.
Better yet, decide on the headphones you want beforehand to increase your chances of bagging them on the low-low. That way you won’t have to waste precious time trawling through the offers; you can move up a few scrolls and find them instantly.
Not sure what features you need, or whether your’e best suited to in-ear, on-ear, or over-ear? Take a look at our headphone buying guide.
