Beats headphone deals are the kinds of sales we stay extra-watchful for. As an Apple sub-brand, Beats headphones and earbuds deliver exceptional sound quality and powerful noise cancelling for fairly reasonable prices. But right now, you’ll be able to grab the Beats Studio Buds for $80. They’re normally $150, and this is just one of many Best Buy deals we discovered this week!

Why you should buy the Beats Studio Buds

Noise cancelling earbuds are made by just about every noteworthy audio company these days, but Apple seems to have a way of cancelling those unwanted frequencies that other brands struggle to match. Such is the case with the Beats Studio Buds. Not only will you be able to block out the decibels you don’t want pounding around in your ears, but a fast switchover to Transparency mode immediately amplifies the sounds around you; allowing you to have conversations without removing your earbuds.

Comfort wise, you may even forget you’re wearing the Studio Buds! The compact form factor gives the buds a nice, tight seal while they’re in your ears, while the three pairs of silicone ear tips provide padding and extra stability. The earbuds are also IPX4 rated: Use them to your heart’s content at the gym or on a jog.

As far as sound quality goes, Beats are big on bass, and always have been. The Studio Buds don’t lag behind when it comes to treble or midrange either though. We’re also pleased to report that you should get up to 8 hours of bud playback on a full charge. The included charging case stores an extra 16 hours of battery life, and you’ll be able to recharge the case fast with the USB-C port.

Ideally, the Studio Buds are best paired to an iPhone or iPad to be able to take advantage of hands-free Siri functions. But as long as you don’t mind manual Bluetooth pairing, you’ll be able to connect them to Android devices too. 

True wireless earbuds deals are promos we’re always on the lookout for. And again, for a limited time, you’ll be able to score the Beats Studio Buds for just $80!

The earbuds version of the Sony XM5 headphones are on sale today
Sony WF-1000XM5 in silver.

We named the Sony WH-1000XM5 over-the-ear headphones the best headphones of 2024. Their earbud counterparts, the WF-1000XM5, are currently on sale for $250 after a $50 price cut. Over the last several years, the company has consistently produced some of the best-looking and sounding cans and buds. It’s not too often that you’ll see Sony hardware drop in price though, which is why we wanted to call attention to this solid Best Buy earbuds deal.

Why you should buy the Sony WF-1000XM5 earbuds
Year after year, we’ve tested Sony’s latest and greatest in-ear and over-ear audio products, and they continue to make our lists of the best audio options available. We took the amazing XM5 earbuds for a spin not too long ago, and we couldn’t believe what we heard. Rich, robust sound in all frequency ranges; particularly when it comes to vocals and bass.

Score the Beats Studio Pro for $100 off at Best Buy
Beats Studio Pro on headphone stand.

It’s getting harder and harder to find wireless headphones and earbuds without noise-canceling these days, and that’s because the feature is a true godsend. As masters of the tech, Beats has been delivering excellent ANC audio products for years, which is why we’re so excited that Best Buy has marked down the Beats Studio Pro headphones. Normally, these headphones are $350, but now they’re only $250 while the sale lasts!

Why you should buy Beats Pro headphones
A solid set of noise-canceling headphones are nothing without robust sound quality backing them up; and to that end, the Studio Pro has got you covered. You can expect big bass, articulate mids, and crystalline highs, but without all the sibilance that too much treble brings. You’ll even be able to download the Beats App to truly fine-tune your listening experience, while monitoring battery level and other vitals. There’s no multi-band EQ, but that’s a small detractor for some otherwise rock-solid companion software.

These Skullcandy over-the-ear headphones are down to $100 from $200
Skullcandy Crusher Evo

Skullcandy is a brand that's been on the market for a while, and it make some pretty good headphones, even if they may not necessarily compete with the best headphones on the market like Sony's XM5s or the Apple AirPods Max. Luckily, these Skullcandy Crusher Evo are a pretty solid option for the usual price they go for, which is $200, but this deal from Best Buy that knocks them down to just $100 makes them an actual steal. As such, they're perfect if you're shopping for a solid mid-range pair of headphones on a tight budget.

Why you should buy the Skullcandy Crusher Evo
Even for a pair of $200 headphones, the Skullcandy Crusher Evo are surprisingly powerful when it comes to bass, and is perfect for those who really enjoy bass-heavy music. A lot of that is achieved by Skullcandy's Sensory Bass system, which asks you to register the frequencies you can hear in a series of tests, and adjusting the EQ accordingly. Interestingly, this personal audio adjustment is probably one of the best in the industry, although if you don't really want to fuss around with that, the audio out of the box is still pretty excellent, so they're a perfect set to grab and use immediately.
