What Prime Day headphone deals to expect

Prime Day is always a great time for big technology discounts and we’re expecting Prime Day 2021 to be the same. When it comes to what headphones we’ll see on offer, we’re reasonably confident that you’ll see all the big names as part of the Prime Day headphone sales.

That means discounts on the likes of the Apple AirPods and Apple AirPods Pro, along with over-ear headphones like the fantastic Sony WH-1000XM4 and also big price cuts on brands such as JBL, Jabra, Bose, Beats, and many more. Whatever your budget, there should be a pair of headphones or earbuds for you here.

What Prime Day headphone deals we saw last year

Last year, Prime Day had big savings on a lot of great headphones and earbuds. These included the Sony WF-1000XM3, the Apple AirPods Pro along with the Powerbeats Pro, the Skullcandy range of true wireless earbuds, and some great options from Bose (including the Bose QuietComfort 35 II) and Bowers & Wilkins, too.

Effectively, there were so many Prime Day headphone sales that we saw price cuts for every budget meaning you could spend hundreds of dollars on the latest noise-canceling technology or just $30 on some good value earbuds.

Should you buy new headphones on Prime Day?

Prime Day is a great time for buying new technology. It’s well-regarded as a good time of year for big savings when it comes to both headphones and earbuds. With extensive Prime Day headphone sales likely, it makes sense to plan ahead and buy new headphones during the Prime Day sales, providing you need a new pair. What’s even more sensible is to consider your budget so you know what you can afford.
