Black Friday is one of the best times of the year to stock up on audio gear, and whether you’re looking to overhaul your living room setup or just improve some sound on your commute, we’ve rounded up every great headphone and speaker deal around.

And if you’re a DJ or electronic musician, we’ve put together a separate list with more tailored suggestions for you, too.

The best headphones to buy on Black Friday

The Massdrop-made Sennheiser HD 6XX for $199.99 still is one of the best headphone deals around for sheer audio quality — we’ve seen this price before, but it’s still a great pair of cans now. And if you prefer noise-canceling headphones, the deals on the Sony MDR1000X and the Bose QC25 are both excellent buys.

The best speakers to buy on Black Friday

If you’re looking for an at home speaker, it’s hard to go wrong with the $25 price cut on the Sonos One, which offers the same audio power as the Play:1 and Sonos’ excellent multi-room audio with the added bonus of Alexa (and eventually, Google Assistant).

On the more portable side of things, our two favorite Bluetooth speakers, the JBL Charge 3 and the UE Boom 2, are both heavily discounted for Black Friday down to $89.99 and $79.99, respectively, making it a great time to pick one up.
