Amazon Prime Day is here, bringing discounts in every major category from outdoor gear to home goods to apparel. But one of our favorite things to shop for during the massive sale event is audio gear: Prime Day delivers some of the year’s best deals on headphones and speakers, with discounts on premium audio products from top brands.
The only downside with Prime Day? The amount of deals is almost overwhelming. If you’re looking to score some heavily discounted headphones or speakers (or both), read on. We’ve sifted through every Prime Day deal this year to find the best Amazon Prime Day speaker and headphone deals worth taking advantage of now.
The Best Amazon Prime Day Speaker & Headphone Deals, Explained
Before jumping into the best Prime Day deals on speakers and headphones, here’s a quick explainer about the different types of deals you’ll encounter during Prime Day.
The first type of Amazon deal is a “Lightning Deal,” which lasts less than 24 hours. The second kind of deal is a “Deal of the Day,” which last between 24 and 48 hours. The third and final type of deal is a “Best Deal,” which lasts longer than 48 hours. But, because Amazon tries to keep Prime Day discounts within the two-day event window, even Best Deal listings should be acted on quickly to avoid paying the regular price.
What Are the Best Prime Day Speaker & Headphone Deals?
Below are some of the best Amazon Prime Day speaker and headphone deals, including discounts on sporty earbuds, noise-cancelling headphones, and portable speakers from brands like Beats, Sony, and Bose.
