Amazon Prime Big Deal Days are almost gone. We're seeing massive price drops on items across the site, especially for Prime members, but they'll expire at midnight on Wednesday.
One of the most rewarding areas to explore this year has been personal audio, with many of our favourite headphones available at a hugediscount. We've found you deals on some of the leading names in earbuds and over-ear headphones, including Apple, Beats, Sony, Sennheiser and more.
We'll be bringing you deals for both in-ear and over-ear headphones here, but if it's Apple AirPods you had your eye on, check out our collection of the best Prime Day AirPods deals, too. Here are our Prime Big Deal Days picks for awesome savings for portable audio. Don't let them pass you by.
Best Sony Prime Day headphone deals
Although these aren't the full minimalist profile of most earbuds, Sony's WI-C310 are indeed Bluetooth connectable to your phone or other device. The cords connect the buds to a flexible headset with multi-touch button controls. These are very nice for the price, especially at 55 per cent off.
These are a solid pair of over-ear headphones that are on sale for 15 per cent off. Sony's Integrated Processor V1 noise cancelling expertly filters out external audio so you can be alone with your music. Battery life goes up to a staggering 35 hours in between charges. Grab them quickly for $198.
Sony SRS-NS7 Neckband Bluetooth Speaker
This is somewhere in between over-ear headphones and a portable speaker. The Sony SRS-NS7 is a Bluetooth audio device that rests on your neck, delivering enveloping spatial audio to your ears without a lot of audio bleed to the rest of the room. A built-in microphone lets you control it hands-free. Get over $100 off for Prime Day.
Sony's range of headphones are among some of our favorites, and we've got some interesting deals before Prime Big Deal Days. The WI-C310 are a lightweight and responsive set of in-ears with a harness to help you keep them on your head, and the WH-CH720N are reliable over-ears.
Best Beats Prime Day headphone deals
Beats Powerbeats Pro
The Powerbeats Pro are the full package, particularly for those who want to exercise while listening to music. They offer incredible battery life, enjoyable sound and a fit that's both comfortable enough to wear for long periods and secure enough to take it on your most extreme workout sessions. They're now 40 per cent off for Prime Day, taking them down to just $149.95.
Beats Solo 3 Wireless
The Beats Solo3 Wireless are a solid set of on-ear cans for those that prioritise battery life and portability. They're a little bit smaller and lighter than the Studio model, but offer the same punchy, energetic sound character, alongside 40 hours of music playback. You can pick up the Rose Gold versions at 35 per cent off, just $99.99.
Beats Studio Buds
The Beats Studio Buds are a solid no-frills set of in-ear headphones, with potent bass response and high-quality active noise cancellation. They're comfortable to wear for long periods as well. Get 40% off for Prime Big Deal Days.
Beats are always a popular buy from Amazon, merging good design with top sound quality and features. The product line has something for just about everyone, including the Powerbeats Pro, which are a steal at $199.99 - a fantastic deal for anyone looking for a pair of earbuds to exercise with.
For an over-ear fit, the Beats Solo3 Wireless offer a compact design plus superb battery life that makes them great for traveling.
Best Apple Prime Day headphone deals
Apple AirPods Pro 2
The design of the second generation AirPods Pro may have remained similar to its predecessor, but the internal upgrades, performance and noise cancelling improvements make the AirPods Pro 2 an exceptional pair of wireless headphones. Grab them with $60 off RRP in this deal.
Apple AirPods 3
Sitting in the middle of Apple's AirPods portfolio, the 3rd Generation AirPods offer a great balance between features and price, whilst also delivering a refreshed and water-resistant design and great sound quality. Up to 30 hours of battery life means they'll last all day and more.
Apple AirPods Max
Apple's first venture into over-ear headphones has been very successful. The AirPods Max feature tremendous spatial audio, noise cancelling and soft, comfortable memory foam ear cushioning. Get 13% off for Prime Big Deal Days.
The AirPods Pro (2nd Generation) with the new USB-C chargers are currently the top of the range Apple wireless earbuds you can get, but if you don't need noise canceling, the standard AirPods (3rd Generation) offer many of the same features, like sweat resistance and Spatial Audio. We dig the AirPods Max, too, for over-ear comfort.
More Prime Day headphone deals
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3
We liked these headphones so much we gave them an award in 2022, and now you can get them for 49 per cent off. High-end in-ear comfort and great noise cancellation team up with robust, clear sound for a solid audio experience.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2
They may have been out for a couple of years now, but the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 still offer fantastic sound quality - and now at a much cheaper price. The ANC isn't as good as the Buds 2 Pro, but when you can pick up the olive version at 40 per cent off, you're still getting a great deal.
The Treblab Z2 over-ear headphones are a remarkably solid offering from a brand not known for portable audio. With comfortable ear swivel construction, they reduce pressure to the head while optimizing sound. 35 hours of battery life mean they'll last you through an ultramarathon, and for Prime Big Deal Days they're almost half off.
Here's our pick of the rest of the deals. The Treblab Z2s might not be on your radar, but they're affordable, comfortable and deliver solid sound.
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 3 tick the premium box for in-ear buds - we called them the best in-ears we reviewed in 2022, and a price drop makes them even more attractive.
Finally, Android users will find the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are a great choice, and they're now available for under $100 in certain colors.
