When it comes to headphones and true wireless earbuds, there are a ton of brands and products to choose from. However, the sheer range of available models can also make them difficult to shop for, especially since many of them cater to different lifestyles, budgets, and priorities. Some are better suited for long-haul flights and vigorous workouts, for instance, while others let you tune out noise so you can focus better. 

That’s why we’ve curated a list of the best headphone and earbud deals available. Here, you’ll find sales on all kinds of earbuds and over-ear headphones, all of which come with their own strengths and weaknesses. And if you want to do even more research before making a buying decision, we’ve put together guides to the best wireless earbuds and best noise-canceling headphones, which can help you determine which pair is right for you.

The best Apple deals

AirPods Pro (second-gen) deals

If you own an iPhone or multiple Apple products, the second-gen AirPods Pro are probably your best best when it comes to wireless earbuds. In comparison to the base AirPods, the Pros offer better sound quality and feature active noise cancellation, not to mention seamless integration with iOS and a MagSafe-compatible charging case.

Last year, Apple launched a new pair of AirPods Pro with improved sound quality and better noise cancellation. They also include onboard volume controls and a new MagSafe charging case, one that can beep if you ever misplace it thanks to its deeper Find My integration. The earbuds even come with an extra swappable tip for smaller ears.

The second-gen AirPods Pro typically retail for $249, but right now, you can buy them for $199.99 ($50 off) from Verizon and at a local Micro Center store. You can also buy them from Amazon for $219 and $10 more from Walmart.

Apple’s latest AirPods Pro take after the last-gen model but include swipe controls and a new H2 chip that allows for improved noise cancellation. They also come with a water-resistant charging case that offers support for Apple’s robust Find My network.

AirPods (second-gen) deals

Alternatively, you can buy a pair of the second-gen AirPods with a wired charging case. Their sound quality isn’t quite up to par with newer models, however, they remain the cheapest Apple earbuds on the market and continue to pair seamlessly with a range of Apple products thanks to their built-in H1 chip. The entry-level AirPods normally retail for $129, but you can currently get them for $99 at Amazon and Walmart.

The second-gen AirPods are a lot harder to get ahold of with a MagSafe charging case, however, unless you’re shopping for a used or refurbished pair of earbuds. Luckily, though, you can still buy them in new condition at Adorama for $129.99 ($20 off).

AirPods (third-gen) deals

Last on the AirPods block are the third-gen AirPods, which represent the latest iteration of the base model. They blend a bit of the AirPods Pro look with the hard plastic build of the second-gen model; they also offer IPX4 water resistance and improved sound quality over the latter, even if they are still lacking in the low end.

Right now, you can buy the third-gen AirPods with either a MagSafe charging case or a Lightning-only charging case. The option with the wired charging case is on sale at Amazon, Walmart, and Target for around $149 ($30 off), while the version with the wireless charging case is on sale at B&H Photo and Costco for around $169.95 ($9 off).

Read our AirPods (third-gen) review.

Apple’s third-gen AirPods have a new design and sound significantly better than their predecessors. They also add new features like head tracking for spatial audio.

Similar in appearance to their sleeker sibling, the AirPods Pro, the latest entry-level AirPods boast a new charging case and shorter stems. They’re also water resistant, unlike the 2019 model, and sport better battery life.

AirPods Max deals

If you’re looking for some of the best sound quality you can get in a pair of noise-canceling headphones, we recommend the AirPods Max. The headphones pair seamlessly with other Apple devices and sound superb, especially combined with Apple’s spatial audio feature, which allows for a more immersive experience when listening to or watching compatible content. They also tout the best transparency mode of all the headphones on our list and boast incredible build quality thanks to a luxe design that opts for aluminum, steel, and fabric over plastic.

With an MSRP of $549, the AirPods Max can be pretty expensive, but they’re often on sale for far less. Right now, for instance, the headphones are down to around $479 at Amazon, Walmart, and B&H Photo. If you live near a Micro Center, you can also buy them in-store for $469.99 in select colors.

Apple’s AirPods Max feature exemplary build quality, sound phenomenal, and keep up with the best at noise cancellation.

Best Beats deals

Beats Fit Pro deals

The Beats Fit Pro are the latest fitness earbuds from Apple and offer a sportier design and better sound than the first-gen AirPods Pro. The wing tips help to keep them in place when you’re active, while also ensuring they remain comfortable over long listening sessions. Their functionality with Android phones is slightly limited, but if you use an iPhone, you get all the conveniences of Apple’s H1 chip and deeper OS integration and connectivity. Their only real downside is that the included charging case is overly large and lacks wireless charging (which is more forgivable at lower price points).

You can currently buy the Beats Fit Pro for as low as $144.95 ($55 off) from Woot in black.

Read our Beats Fit Pro review.

The Beats Fit Pro earbuds have integrated wing tips that help keep them secure during runs and workouts. They also have excellent noise cancellation, and their sound has just the right amount of bass and kick to keep you motivated.

The best Google deals

Google Pixel Buds Pro deals

The Google Pixel Buds Pro are another good pair of noise-canceling earbuds, particularly for Pixel phone owners. The wireless earbuds offer terrific sound quality and battery life, along with useful features like multipoint Bluetooth connectivity. If you own a Pixel phone, you’ll also get access to exclusive features like head-tracking spatial audio and easy access to their settings menu.

Right now, they’re on sale for around $139 ($60 off) at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy.

Google’s Pixel Buds Pro are the company’s first earbuds to include active noise cancellation. They combine impressive sound, great battery life, and good comfort — all without the connection issues of earlier models. 

Google Pixel Buds A-Series deals

Google also sells a cheaper pair of earbuds, the Google Pixel Buds A-Series. They offer good sound and voice call quality, along with perks like Google Assistant and an IPX4 rating for sweat and water resistance. Just bear in mind there are some tradeoffs when opting for a cheaper set of earbuds, as the A-Series lack noise cancellation, wireless charging, and are more prone to the occasional connection hiccup.

At the moment, you can pick them up on sale for around $59 ($40 off) — an all-time low — at Amazon, Best Buy, and the Google Store.

The Pixel Buds A-Series deliver good comfort, impressive audio quality, and hands-free Google Assistant voice controls for under $100.

Best Sony deals

Sony LinkBuds deals

The Sony LinkBuds are a clear departure from conventional earbuds, one that uses an “open-style” donut-shaped design instead of the more typical silicone ear tips. This allows for better spatial awareness and, for some, a more comfortable fit. The LinkBuds also provide crisp sound quality and excellent voice call performance. (Though, as a result of their design, they aren’t very practical in louder environments.) Possibly the coolest feature, though, are the controls, which allow you to tap the side of your head to control them instead of the earbud itself. They’re certainly very Sony.

Normally $179.99, you can currently get a pair of the LinkBuds for around $128 at Amazon, Walmart, Crutchfield, and direct from Sony.

Read our review of the Sony LinkBuds.

Sony’s LinkBuds have a standout design that’s rooted in comfort and an airy, open sound. They also excel when used for voice calls, outshining pretty much all competitors.

Sony LinkBuds S deals

One more intriguing pair of earbuds from Sony are the LinkBuds S, which don’t look as peculiar as the regular LinkBuds but are some of the comfiest earbuds around. A big part of this is due to their lightweight build, which amounts to just 4.8 grams per bud. They also offer active noise cancellation and support for Sony’s LDAC Bluetooth codec, which allows for higher-quality audio streaming. Normally $199.99, the LinkBuds S are on sale for around $128 at Amazon, B&H Photo, and Best Buy.

These waterproof earbuds from Sony can automatically switch between ambient sound and noise cancellation based on your environment. They also feature support for the LDAC lossless audio codec.

Sony WH-CH720N deals

If you’re looking for noise-canceling headphones for under $150, Sony’s WH-CH720N might be worth a look. The budget-friendly headphones come with adjustable noise cancellation and are exceptionally light, which allows for a more comfortable fit. They also feature Bluetooth support and offer up to 35 hours of continuous playback on a single charge, though they lack support for Sony’s higher-quality LDAC codec.

The headphones typically retail for $149, but right now, you can buy them in various colors for around $128 from Amazon, B&H Photo, and Best Buy.

Sony’s wireless headphones offer noise cancellation and up to 35 hours of battery life on a single charge. They also come in blue, white, and black.

Sony WF-C700N deals

The WF-C700N are another pair of noise-canceling earbuds from Sony and are currently available for around $98 from Amazon, Best Buy, and Sony. They’re an exceptionally comfortable pair of earbuds with decent sound quality and support for an array of useful software features, including Fast Pair support on Android as well as location-based sound settings. Admittedly, their noise cancellation doesn’t truly drown out the world, but it does eliminate some sound. Voice call quality isn’t particularly impressive, either, but if you just need an affordable pair of earbuds to help you tune out some noise, the WF-C700N should do just fine.

Best Samsung deals

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro deals

Samsung has a few different wireless earbuds to choose from. Its most high-end pair, the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro, launched last year but are currently not on sale. That said, the original Galaxy Buds Pro have a lower MSRP and a history of frequent deals, which makes them a fine option if you’re an Android user or Samsung devotee who wants a pair of premium earbuds without paying a premium price. The original model features active noise cancellation and IPX7 sweat and water resistance, too, along with good sound quality that Samsung has only now eclipsed with the new version.

When they first were released, the Galaxy Buds Pro sold for $199.99. Right now, however, they’re available at Best Buy in white for $80.99.

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Pro have a blend of tech found in the older Buds Plus and Buds Live, with excellent sound quality.

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 deals

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 are a good-sounding pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation, wireless charging, and a subtle design. Right now, the best price around is at Amazon, where you can grab a pair in the olive color for $79.96 ($70 off). You can also buy the wireless earbuds in other shades for $30 more at Amazon and Best Buy. That’s not a bad price for Samsung’s entry-level buds, which hit above their weight class with noise cancellation and good audio quality.

Read our Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 review.

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 have a stylish, low-profile design, and the earbuds are incredibly comfortable to wear even for long amounts of time. The earbuds feature active noise cancellation, pleasing sound quality, and wireless charging.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live deals

The Galaxy Buds Live are some of the more unconventional wireless earbuds on the market, but don’t let their bean-shaped design fool you. The Buds Live are a good option if you want smaller earbuds that produce powerful sound and showcase marathon battery life. Right now, you can purchase a pair of the Galaxy Buds Live at Amazon for $69.99 ($90 off) or for $20 more at Best Buy and Target.

Best Jabra deals

Jabra Elite 7 Active deals

Jabra’s Elite 7 Active are a pair of fitness-focused earbuds that make for a good alternative to the Jabra Elite 7 Pro. They feature multipoint support for connecting to two devices simultaneously like the Elite 7 Pro, along with the same sound quality. They’re a terrific pair of earbuds if you like to go for runs, with more robust IP57 water resistance and better battery life than many of their fitness-oriented competitors. Plus, unlike similar offerings from Beats and Anker, the Elite 7 Active offer a secure fit without the need for added hooks or fins.

Normally $179.99, they’re currently available for $104.99 ($75 off) at Amazon or for $5 more at Walmart.

Nearly indistinguishable from the Elite 7 Pro in appearance, the Elite 7 Active make the Pro model more workout-friendly with a rubberized coating that gives them IP57 water resistance and prevents them from falling out during a workout.

Jabra Elite 4 Active deals

If you prefer a more affordable pair of earbuds that are geared toward working out, there’s also Jabra’s Elite 4 Active. They come with IP57 water resistance and active noise cancellation (though you can’t adjust it) but lack wireless charging. However, if you’re fine without the extra bells and whistles, you can buy them for $79.99 ($40 off) at Amazon and Best Buy.

Jabra’s Elite 4 Active are smaller than Jabra’s Elite 3 and offer active noise cancellation and IP57 water resistance.

Jabra Elite 4 deals

Alternatively, you can buy Jabra’s Elite 4, which are the successor to the Jabra Elite 3, for $79.99 ($20 off) at Amazon. Unlike the Elite 3, these sport noise cancellation along with multipoint Bluetooth support. They lack the Elite 4 Active’s higher IP57 rating, however, and we can’t comment on how good these are as we’ve yet to test the earbuds.

Jabra’s Elite 4 earbuds are the successor to the Jabra Elite 3. They offer noise cancellation and multipoint Bluetooth support, though lack the newer Jabra Elite 5’s IP55 dust and water resistance.

Jabra Elite 7 Pro deals

As their name suggests, the Elite 7 Pro are some of the most premium earbuds in Jabra’s current earbud lineup. They’re a stylish pair with impressive voice call quality and perks like wireless charging, multipoint Bluetooth support, and are IP57 rated for water resistance. Admittedly, their active noise cancellation can’t quite compete with the likes of Bose or even Jabra’s older Elite 85t, but they tune out noise well enough. They also offer good sound, even if they trail behind some of the competition.

Regularly $199.99, you can currently buy the Jabra Elite 7 Pro for $119.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. That’s $20 shy of their all-time low and the best price we’ve seen so far this year.

Read our Jabra Elite 7 Pro review.

Jabra’s Elite 7 Pro features stellar voice call quality along with support for wireless charging and multipoint Bluetooth.

Jabra Elite 85t deals

In 2020, Jabra released the Elite 85t wireless earbuds, which were the highest-tier model in Jabra’s lineup before the release of the Elite 7 Pro. They provide more advanced noise cancellation than the prior Elite 75t (and even the newer Elite 7 Pro). However, unlike their predecessor, they feature less bass and an inferior fit. Like the rest of the models in Jabra’s current lineup, they even offer a rare feature that has yet to become standard in the true wireless earbud market: the ability to connect to two devices concurrently.

Right now, you can buy the Jabra Elite 85t for $129.99 ($100 off) in black directly from Jabra when you use promo code Save85t.

Jabra’s Elite 85t have noise cancellation and a semi-open design, letting them breathe a bit more than the company’s other models. One of their most impressive features is the ability to handle multiple Bluetooth connections simultaneously.

Best Sennheiser deals

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 deals

Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 3are another pair of noise-canceling earbuds that are currently on sale. The third-gen earbuds are our top pick if you prioritize sound quality, and they offer better noise cancellation than their predecessor. They also boast a sleeker design and wireless charging support. This does come at a fairly steep regular price of $279.95, but right now you can buy them for just $146 at Amazon in black and $3 more in other colors. You can also buy them on sale in a greater number of shades for $30 more at Best Buy.

Read our Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 review.

Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 4 deals

If you’re looking for a pair of noise-canceling headphones with superb battery life, Sennheiser’s Momentum Wireless 4 are your best option. These headphones are capable of lasting up to 60 hours on a single charge. They also sound terrific, offer multipoint Bluetooth connectivity, and match the Sony WH-1000XM5 — our favorite noise-canceling headphones — in terms of comfort. They may not boast physical controls or the stylish, retro-inspired design their predecessor had, but they do offer improved noise cancellation (even if it isn’t quite on par with that of Sony or Bose’s offerings).

The Momentum Wireless 4 typically sell for $379.95, but right now you can buy them for $339.82 at Amazon.

Best UE deals

UE Fits deals

After testing a pair for ourselves, we remarked in our review that the UE Fits were the most comfortable consumer earbuds on the market. That’s because, unlike the other wireless earbuds on this list, the UE Fits are uniquely capable of permanently molding to the shape of your ears in just 60 seconds, making them a great choice for those concerned their earbuds may come loose or fall out. We also found that they offer good sound quality, as well as lengthy, eight-hour battery life. Normally $199, you can get them right now for $169 direct from Ultimate Ears.

The UE Fits come with ear tips that permanently mold to the unique shape of your ears in just 60 seconds. This allows for a much better fit that you can comfortably wear for hours.

In addition to active noise cancellation and long battery life, the earbuds boast powerful sound with support for the higher-quality LDAC codec. They also come with multipoint Bluetooth support, IPX4 water resistance, and a wide selection of ear and wing tips.

Regularly $169.99, they’re on sale right now for $109.99 at Amazon, Walmart, and direct from Soundcore. That’s not as cheap as their recent low of $84.99, but it’s still a good deal given the number of features they offer.

Read our Anker Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro review.

Anker’s top-level Liberty 3 Pro wireless noise-canceling earbuds support high-quality LDAC audio and feature three different transparency modes.

The best Nothing deals

Nothing Ear Stick deals

If you like the new Beats Studio Buds Plus because of their transparent look, Nothing’s Ear Stick earbuds are a cheaper option that’s currently available for $79 ($20 off) from Nothing. They’re not quite as capable as the Beats and lack premium features like active noise cancellation, but they’re certainly stylish thanks to their see-through design and tube-like charging case. The open-style earbuds also deliver good sound, along with improved battery life and better voice call quality than their predecessor.
