Best Prime Day 2020 headphone deals: The best sales you can still shop

Amazon Prime Day deals have officially come to a close, but don’t worry, there’s still some time left to pick up audio equipment on the cheap, especially earbuds and headphones. The technology in headphones has dramatically improved in the last year, with average battery life per charge ballooning from just four hours to upward of six or eight hours per charge for earbuds.

For over-ear headphones, expecting more than 30 hours per charge is not out of the question. Noise-canceling technology has also made great improvements in both headphones and earbuds, so if you haven’t thought about looking to upgrade your personal audio, there has never been a better time. Whether it’s in-ear, on-ear, or over-ear, these are all the best Prime Day headphone deals that are still available.

Once Prime Day deals come to an end, Black Friday headphone deals soon start to show up on the horizon, so be here to check them out

How to choose new headphones

Prime Day Headphone Deals

If you’ve ever tried shopping for headphones before, you know there’s a myriad of options out there. There’s a couple of questions you need to ask yourself when picking a set of headphones: What are you going to use your headphones for? Do you want a wired or wireless headphone? Are additional features like noise-cancellation important to you? And most importantly, how much are you willing to spend?

If you’re looking for a no-nonsense, always-trusted, wireless pair of headphones — especially if you’re an iPhone owner — always go with the AirPods Pro. They’re great for wearing when you’re sitting around at home or putting in a heavy workout — especially with the added noise-cancellation features. They can also be used with voice assistance, making them quite worth the $249 price tag. They also function with Android phones, so you don’t have to be an Apple lover to buy the AirPods Pro.

That said, the AirPods Pro have a relatively short battery life, only lasting about four hours on one charge. If you want something with all-day battery life and a more isolated sound experience, you’re better off with a more traditional set of wireless headphones like the Beats Solo 3 or Solo Pro. These headphones usually have a battery life that extends close to 40 hours and come in a variety of fun colors to add a little personality to your everyday outfit. They’re also wireless and don’t slip off of your ears during your daily run. The Solo3’s are also more affordable. The Beats Solo3 retails at only around $200, so it’s better priced than the AirPods Pro or Powerbeats Pro.

For a lot of users, a $200 price tag is still a hefty investment, so if you’re looking for something more affordable without missing out on sound quality, compromise by going for a wired set of headphones. The 1More Triple Driver earphones are our top pick for an affordable wired headphone that still delivers bass-driven sound. They’re only $76, and that’s without any Prime Day discounts so if you don’t want to break the bank, stick with these.

A few other tips to keep in mind while shopping: Always check to see if you’re headphones are sweat- and water-resistant. Though most pairs are, it’s always good to know all the features of a product before you purchase it. Also, keep in mind the quality of the earcup when buying over-ear headphones. Memory foam padding on the earcup is your best option but leather earcups are pretty comfortable, too. It’s all really a matter of preference but a good thing to keep in mind. Over-ear headphones also require more care (and suffer more wear and tear) as you need to keep the earcups clean and odor-free.
