The best Prime Day deals on earbuds and headphones overall

Beats Fit Pro

$20025% off

Our favorite fitness earbuds, the Beats Fit Pro, feature soft flexible fins that keep them anchored in your ears during vigorous workouts. Their excellent sound has plenty of bass to keep you motivated in the middle of a long run.

  • Sony’s WF-1000XM4 noise-canceling earbuds — still our top pick in the category — are on sale for $198, way down from their usual $279.99. The 1000XM4s offer superb noise cancellation and sound quality in a comfortable set of earbuds and also include many extra software features. Read our review.
  • Apple’s AirPods Pro are on sale for $169.99 instead of $249 with a MagSafe-ready charging case, which is just $10 more than their all-time low. Their noise-cancellation is excellent, while their swappable silicone tips allow for a more comfortable fit. Read our review.

Sony’s fantastic WH-1000XM4 headphones are on sale for $228 ($122 off), making this a new all-time low. These were once our favorite noise-canceling headphones before the newer WH-1000XM5 took over, yet are still great with terrific sound and voice quality, as well as support for two simultaneous Bluetooth connections.

  • Bose’s QuietComfort Earbuds have dropped to just $179, a $100 discount from what you’d normally pay. Their active noise cancellation is right up there with Sony’s, and some people prefer Bose’s sound signature. Read our review.

Bose QuietComfort 45

$32915% off

Bose’s QuietComfort 45 headphones update the company’s popular supremely comfortable design with USB-C, improved noise cancellation, and longer battery life.

The best Prime Day earbud and headphones deals under $100


Apple’s second-gen AirPods don't offer noise cancellation, a wireless charging case, or spatial audio support, but their battery life is good, and they offer good sound quality. 

Samsung Galaxy Buds 2

$15033% off

Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 fall to under $100 for Prime Day 2022. That’s a fantastic deal on the company’s entry-level buds, which have a compact, sleek design and good sound quality.

  • Anker’s Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro are just $89.99 ($80 off). These earbuds offer decent active noise cancellation (ANC), ear and wing tips for a more comfortable tip, and Bluetooth multipoint support. Read our review.
  • It wouldn’t be Prime Day without a discount on Amazon’s own gadgets. The second-gen Echo Buds are discounted to just $69.99 (originally $119.99). They’re getting a little old at this point but still offer a good combination of sound quality and noise cancellation. Read our review.

Sony WF-C500

$10042% off

Sony’s entry-level earbuds, the WF-C500, offer reliable performance and a wonderfully comfortable fit. And for Prime Day 2022, you can get them for under $60. That’s a steal. Read our review.
