If you’re on the hunt for new wireless headphones, we can’t recommend the Sony WH-1000XM5 enough, especially with Best Buy’s $70 discount for this year’s Memorial Day deals. Ahead of the holiday, you can already buy the noise-canceling headphones for a more affordable $330 instead of their original price of $400, but you’re going to have to act fast. There’s a chance that this early offer won’t even make it to Memorial Day itself because of the popularity of these headphones, so grab yours now while stocks are still available.

Why you should buy the Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones

Shoppers who buy the Sony WH-1000XM5 will never regret it, as they’re on top of our list of the best headphones and also featured in our roundup of the best noise-canceling headphones. In addition to their premium quality active noise cancellation, which uses two processors and eight microphones to prevent any disturbance while you listen to music or watch videos, the Sony WH-1000XM5 also offer amazing sound quality so that you can fully appreciate your favorite playlists. You’ll also get extremely clear call quality with these wireless headphones, for those important conversations.

The Sony WH-1000XM5 will be able to accompany you throughout the day because its battery can last up to 30 hours on a single charge. If you need a quick charge, you can get up to three hours of usage after just three minutes of being plugged in. Another reason why you can wear these wireless headphones all day is their comfortable design, which features soft leather and light pressure on your head.

In what’s probably the best of the headphone deals for Memorial Day, Best Buy has slashed the price of the Sony WH-1000XM5 from $400 to $330. You wouldn’t want to miss the $70 in savings for these wireless headphones, so you better hurry with your purchase. It won’t be a good idea to wait until the last minute of the holiday before you push forward with the transaction because the bargain may already be gone by then, so if you want to get the Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones for cheaper than usual, you should buy them right now.

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.

Best Prime Day headphone deals: What to expect in 2024
Prime Day Headphone Deals

With Memorial Day out of the way, it can seem like a long slog to the fall/winter holiday season for the deals-conscious buyer. But that most unofficial of summer holidays is coming... Prime Day. Prime Day is set to come this year in July, though we aren't exactly sure when at this time, and Prime Day deals (early, official, and third party) are around the corner. Here, we're looking specifically at headphones (and, admittedly, some nice earbuds) and how they're being treated this Prime Day. So, if you're looking to get dirt cheap headphones, high-end headphones on the cheap, or anything in between this Prime Day, this is the place to keep tabs on the constantly evolving state of the deals as we'll be constantly updating this as official Prime Day begins.
Today's best headphone deals
Prime Day isn't here yet and we don't know when it will officially begin, except that it starts sometime in July. This means one thing when it comes to deals on headphones: For the widest variety of deals, try to wait until next month. But that doesn't mean that there aren't great headphones deals going on right now, and if you just can't wait (or your old headphones are broken) it's still fine to shop deals now so long as you accept that the widest range of deals, and possible better prices, are coming later.

Here are the best headphone (and earbuds) deals going on now:

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.
