Amazon’s Cyber Monday deals on headphones and earbuds are already heating up

UPDATE: Nov. 18, 2022, 4:00 p.m. EST This story has been updated to include Amazon’s latest headphones and earbuds deals ahead of Black Friday 2022.

BEST APPLE DEAL: Apple AirPods Max are premium wireless headphones with noise cancellation, a transparency mode, and spatial audio — $449 $549 (save $100)

BEST BEATS DEAL: Beats Studio Buds, some best-in-class noise-canceling earbuds that are just shy of their lowest price to date — $99.95 $149.95 (save $50)

BEST BOSE DEAL: Bose SoundLink Around-Ear Wireless Headphones II deliver deep, immersive sound and crisp, clear calls from anywhere; they’ve also never been this cheap before — $149 $229 (save $80) 🔥

Black Friday is usually a slam dunk season for those seeking deals on headphones and earbuds — and this year is shaping up to be no exception. The deals at Amazon are just starting to heat up, but we’re expecting things to get even hotter as we inch closer to the big day.

There are a few standout deals already live — like an all-time low price on the Bose SoundLink II Headphones and the first decent discount on the second-generation AirPods Pro — but by and large, the headphones and earbuds deals are just getting started. We’re expecting some bigger savings on AirPods, Beats, Bose, and more to drop next week, so keep checking back if there’s a certain pair you’ve got your eye on (Command-F is your friend).

Whether due to supply chain shortages or employee layoffs, Amazon’s free two-day shipping seems to be harder and harder to come by these days. Be sure to pay attention to the estimated shipping time before you check out, so there are no surprises later.

Here’s a running list of all the headphones and earbuds deals at Amazon worth checking out ahead of Black Friday — we’ll be updating it regularly.

Note: All newly added deals are marked with a ✨, while deals with a strikeout were either sold out or no longer available at their sale price when we last looked. Anything marked with a 🔥 has dropped to an all-time low price.

Best Apple deals

Why we like them

We really like the AirPods Max — they’ve got best-in-class noise cancellation, a transparency mode, and spatial audio — but we like ’em better at a price a little less jaw-dropping. How about a $100 discount? While not the lowest price we’ve ever seen, Amazon had the space gray, sky blue, and silver ones on sale for just $449 at the time of writing.

Best Beats deals

(Yes, Beats has technically been part of Apple for many years now, but we’ve divided them up to keep things organized.)

Why we like them

With booming bass, spatial audio, and an all-day battery life, these wireless noise-canceling earbuds from June 2021 “put Apple’s entry-level AirPods to shame,” according to Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry. Amazon has them listed at $99.95 at the time of writing, which is 10 bucks shy of their lowest price ever.

More Beats deals

Beats Fit Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling Earbuds$179.95 $199.95 (save $20)

Best Bose deals

Why we like them

Lightweight, comfy, and long-lasting (up to 15 hours on a single charge), the Bose SoundLink Headphones II make a great companion for everything from commuting to working out to working from home. The microphone system is built to block out wind and noise, so taking a work call at a busy brunch spot shouldn’t be an issue — at least noise-wise. If you forget to charge before traveling or working out, it’s all good. The quick charge feature gives you an extra two hours of listening from a 15-minute plug in. At $149, these babies are already sitting at their lowest price ever at Amazon.

More Bose deals

Bose Sport Earbuds — $129 $149 (save $20)

Bose QuietComfort Noise-Canceling Earbuds — $179 $279 (save $100)🔥

Bose QuietComfort 45 Bluetooth Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones$249 $329 (save $80)

Best Samsung deals

Why we like them

Not to totally pile on AirPods, but Samsung’s newest Galaxy Buds are also way better than Apple’s earbuds, Perry said. “Between an attractive egg-like design, excellent noise cancelation, and relatively robust app-based customization (on Android devices),” he wrote, these puppies “largely deliver the goods” at an extremely reasonable price. At $99.99, they’re about $12 shy of the lowest price they’ve ever been, but still offer an eggcellent $50 discount (sorry).

More Samsung deals

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live — $79.99 $169.99 (save $90)
