How to get the best Black Friday headphone deals

Most Comfortable Over-ear Headphones

It makes a lot of sense to start paying attention to the price of headphones at this time of year. It all makes sense to know if there is a new version of a certain pair of headphones coming out this year. The previous model discounts frequently in that instance. For example, Bose QuietComfort 35 II are arguably some of the best over-the-ear headphones on the market today. The Bose QuietComfort 45 is available. We can assume that the QuietComfort 35 II will be discounted this Black Friday. They currently are at Target and Amazon.

Once you’ve narrowed it down to the pair that you want, you can check to see if it’s going to be discounted on the manufacturer’s website or whether you need to look at some stores. Places like Target, Walmart, Amazon, and Best Buy have some of the best headphone deals in November.

Last year’s Black Friday headphone deals

Apple AirPods Pro

Last year, we saw AirPods Pro on sale around that time of year because they had debuted in October of 2019. They were under $200 at that time for the first time. People who didn’t already have them snatched them up like crazy. But that wasn’t the only pair of earbuds available during the 2020 holiday season. Apple AirPods 3 are out and you can get them now. But AirPods Pro are down to just $219.99 right now.

The Sony WH-1000XM4 are some of the best noise-cancelling headphones out there. They were marked down to just $248 a year ago at this time. Beats Solo Pro on-ear headphones are also noise-cancelling and top-notch. They were down to $169.99 last year and are at that price again right now.
