These exceptional earbuds won't break the bank while still delivering quality
An oldie but a goodie
Amazon's Prime Day event has delivered an incredible number of deals on some of the best wireless earbuds you can buy. But lost in the barrage of $100 and $200 headphones is this extra-affordable pair of Samsung buds. They are the Samsung x AKG buds, which you may remember being included in the box with your old Galaxy Note and other phones, and they make for the perfect pair of backup earbuds. They are wired, obviously, but connect via USB-C instead of a 3.5mm plug, and right now, you can pick up a pair for just $15.
Our handpicked selection of earbuds that offer the most value for your money
Buying a new pair of earbuds doesn’t mean you must pay top dollar to have a pleasant music-listening experience. Even many budget wireless earbuds come packed with features that you’d typically find only on much pricier in-ear headphones. And this Prime Day seems like a perfect time to get yourself a pair of earphones that doesn’t cost a bomb but gets you an unmatched audio experience. These are our favorite Prime Day deals on earbuds under $100 that you should check out right away.
The savings are so good you’ll want to hear them for yourself
Although it isn't the latest set of earbuds on the scene, the Google Pixel Buds A-Series is ideal for people on a budget, and it has the right hardware to back up its price tag. This Prime Day, these affordable earbuds by Google have dropped to their lowest price ever, costing only $60. We've seen the price come down to as low as $80 in the past month, but this one certainly takes the cake in terms of savings. Much like some of the best earbud deals for Prime Day, this one is exclusive to Prime subscribers.
Both your pocket and ears will appreciate the Bose QC45 with this terrific deal
No two headphones are created equally. Some are designed to offer bass-heavy audio, while others come with top-notch microphones for clear voice calls. But if you wear your headphones all day long and value comfort over everything else, there is nothing that can beat the Bose QuietComfort 45. And this Prime Day, you’re in luck because these excellent headphones are available for their lowest price ever, making their discount one of the most tempting tech deals this year.
Prime Day has some crazy discounts on JBL headphones and earbuds.
A vast array of headphones are available in the market, including in-ear, on-ear, over-ear, wired, and wireless ones, but true budget earbuds and headphones can sometimes be a little less than desirable. While you shouldn't expect premium quality audio from a budget offering, there's nothing saying you can get budget headphones and earbuds with good features and decent sound; you have to know where to look.
These recently released true wireless earbuds have dropped down to just $35 for a limited time
If you haven't already ditched the wires for your headphones, there's no better time to do it than right now. Amazon Prime Day, the online retailer's annual sales event, has brought with it a number of big discounts that make the transition so much more affordable than ever before. Right now, you can pick up the latest Echo Buds for just $35, a discount of 30% compared to the regular price. These wireless earbuds are available in both black and white, and with the Prime Day event nearing its end today, you should act fast if you want to get in on these savings.
Take your music outdoors, no strings attached
The consumer audio market is crowded no matter which way you look, be it in pursuit of the best headphones and earbuds or the best portable Bluetooth speakers. However, price plays an important role in deciding which product packs all the features you'll need at a price you’re comfortable paying. Amazon Prime Day is well underway, and there are several mouth-watering discounts on Bluetooth speakers that you ought to check out, especially if you love taking your music outdoors.
The UE Wonderboom 3 is again down to its lowest price
A great portable Bluetooth speaker is a must-have device in your arsenal, especially if you are always traveling or camping. While smartphone speakers have improved in quality over the years, they are still no match for small portable speakers. The latter will offer notably louder and better sound quality and won't eat into your phone's battery life. Owned by Logitech, Ultimate Ears has made a name for itself with its rugged and portable speakers. For Prime Day 2023, the company is discounting the excellent Wonderboom 3 to its all-time low price of $70, a sweet $30 off the MSRP.
Get good noise cancellation and the iconic bean shape for 57% off
Good true wireless earbuds are few and far between, and only a few brands seem to have cracked the code to make the best earbuds with noise cancellation. Samsung sits up high on that list, and the Galaxy Buds Live are a big reason why. When they launched in August 2020, they were instantly identifiable by their unique bean-shaped body. The buds offer outstanding features like powerful sound, clear calling, and impressive battery life. They launched at a premium price, but the sticker price has since dropped to $150. You can pick up these earbuds for less than half as much. Amazon Prime Day has dropped their price to just $65, translating into $85 in savings.
That's $55 off the widely-praised Shokz OpenRun Pro headphones
Welcome to the oft-forgotten-about segment of tech known as bone-conduction headphones. These are headphones that use vibrations to send sound waves through your cheekbones, which then travel to your inner ear, and onto your brain. Admittedly, the concept sounds crazy, but this open-ear design offers benefits for running, cycling, and other activities where you need to be very aware of your surroundings. If you're at all interested in trying the technology out, today is a great day to dive in. The premium pick in our roundup of the best bone-conduction headphones, the Shokz OpenRun Pro, is down to an all-time low price for Prime Day.
Snag the impressive EarFun Air Pro 3 earbuds for $64 right now
With Amazon's two-day Prime Day savings event underway, the chance to score a killer deal on a pair of wireless earbuds is finally here for budget-conscious buyers. While there are plenty of offers to check out, one in particular just dropped on the EarFun Air Pro 3, one of our favorite buds. With an already low price point of $80 to start, they've quickly found a spot in our hearts as some of the best budget-friendly buds you can grab, but an extra $15 discount this Prime Day makes them an even better buy.
The perfect balance of sound and flexibility is almost never this cheap
It's so easy to take your music with you nowadays thanks to the best entertainment apps on Android. However, nothing livens up the mood at a gathering like a Bluetooth speaker you can carry with you to poolside parties and boardroom meetings alike. The Bose SoundLink Flex is our top pick in the crop of Bluetooth speakers available right now, and for this Prime Day, Amazon is selling it for just $105 — 30% lower than the usual selling price of $149.
An excellent gift for friends and family invested in the Apple ecosystem
With Amazon Prime Day officially here, there's not going to be a shortage of excellent deals on some of the most sought-after items out there. The retailer's own series of Fire tablets and Echo speakers have gone on sale as part of early Prime Day deals, and more are on the way. Apple products are traditionally known to be on the expensive side — which has almost become part of the brand's appeal for a few years now — but this shopping season, Amazon is slashing $40 on these earbuds, making this deal hard to miss.
Ultimate comfort and noise cancellation at a better price
best true wireless earbuds on the market come with active noise cancellation (ANC), so you can savor every note, even in the most crowded and noisy places. However, not all ANC buds are created equal, and all offer different cancellation levels. In our testing, we found the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II (QC Earbuds II) right up there with the best in the business, the Sony WF-1000XM4 earbuds.
At under $330, some of Sony’s best ANC headphones are worth picking up today
Amazon's annual Prime Day shopping festival is officially underway, and we're already seeing some ridiculous deals on items that usually don't receive this treatment. Audio deals, in particular, are immensely popular on Prime Day, given that some products, like Sony's top-of-the-line WH-1000XM5, aren't always on sale. But that's changing now, with Amazon currently offering these high-end ANC headphones with a $72 discount on the asking price. While we've seen deals on these headphones before, this is the cheapest yet.
You'll save $60 on these high-end Google earbuds only on Prime Day
Unlike Google’s entry-level Pixel Buds A-series, the Pixel Burds Pro are made for those who want absolutely the best audio experience with a sprinkling of Google’s trademark features. For this Prime Day, you have one more reason to skip the budget model in favor of Google’s highest-end Pixel Buds Pro as they are down to the lowest price we have ever seen.
Our favorite wireless earbuds are down to $198
It's been more than two years since Sony released the WF-1000XM4 earbuds, and they are still our top pick for the best wireless earbuds in 2023. They offer clear, crisp sound, with plenty of EQ settings to tweak, top-of-the-class noise cancellation, and all the features you'd want or expect from a pair of premium headphones. Our biggest gripe with the product has always been the extraordinarily-high price tag, but today's $80 Prime Day deal knocks the XM4s down into the range as most of their competitors.
Find the best speakers to bring that Chrome-powered computer alive
Even the best Chromebooks don’t do much to inspire in the audio department. Although whatever speakers they employ are good enough while working on the go, when you’re home you want some great speakers to bring the music alive. If you’ve decided to go the Chromebox route, you probably already know that they don’t produce sound at all, so speakers are a must.
This new version boasts 'a new smoky and matte finish'
While a relatively new tech startup, Nothing proved that it's finally mature enough to keep its devices on a regular update cycle. The company demonstrates this not only with the Nothing Phones but also with the Nothing Ear wireless headsets, which were its first line of products. We saw Nothing Ear 1's sequel last March, and our own Taylor Kerns thought the Ear 2 delivered decent sound quality and competent ANC at an affordable price point. The earbuds have now received a fresh coat of paint with the same specs and price.
July 4th celebrations may be over, but there are still deals available
While Amazon Prime Day may be the shopping holiday hogging all the attention this July, Independence Day is the original hot deal summer event. The Fourth of July may be over now, but we're still seeing consistent discounts from the big day continue over into the rest of the week. It may be that we continue seeing some of the best deals below through to Prime Day, which starts on July 11. Take a look below for the very best Fourth of July deals that are still active right now.
