Cyber Week is usually a slam dunk season for those seeking deals on headphones and earbuds — and this year is shaping up to be no exception. The deals at Amazon are just starting to heat up, but we’re expecting things to get even hotter as we inch closer to the big day.

There are a few standout deals already live — like an all-time low price on the Bose SoundLink II Headphones and the first decent discount on the second-generation AirPods Pro — but by and large, the headphones and earbuds deals are just getting started.

Whether due to supply chain shortages or employee layoffs, Amazon’s free two-day shipping seems to be harder and harder to come by these days. Be sure to pay attention to the estimated shipping time before you check out, so there are no surprises later.

Here’s a running list of all the headphones and earbuds deals at Amazon worth checking out for Cyber Monday — we’ll be updating it regularly.

Note: All newly added deals are marked with a ✨, while deals with a strikeout were either sold out or no longer available at their sale price when we last looked.

Best Apple deals

Why we like them

We really like the AirPods Max — they’ve got best-in-class noise cancellation, a transparency mode, and spatial audio — but we like ’em better at a price a little less jaw-dropping. How about a $100 discount? While not the lowest price we’ve ever seen, Amazon had the space gray, sky blue, and silver ones on sale for just $449 at the time of writing.

Best Beats deals

(Yes, Beats has technically been part of Apple for many years now, but we’ve divided them up to keep things organized.)

Why we like them

With booming bass, spatial audio, and all-day battery life, these wireless noise-canceling earbuds from June 2021 “put Apple’s entry-level AirPods to shame,” according to Mashable tech reporter Alex Perry.

Best Bose deals

Why we like them

The Bose QuietComfort 45 headphones are fully wireless and have a great balance of sound quality, noise cancellation, and overall comfiness. The over-ear headphones can completely remove outside noise so you can truly enjoy your “me time,” but they also feature an Aware Mode that allows for some ambient noise to funnel through so you can listen to your tunes and podcasts while also not accidentally falling into an open manhole (or whatever happens in cartoons). They also bring with them a 24-hour battery life, customizable EQ settings, high-fidelity audio, and comfortable earcups that you can wear all day.

Why we like them

Not to totally pile on AirPods, but Samsung’s newest Galaxy Buds are also way better than Apple’s earbuds, Perry said. “Between an attractive egg-like design, excellent noise cancelation, and relatively robust app-based customization (on Android devices),” he wrote, these puppies “largely deliver the goods” at an extremely reasonable price.
