Amazon’s fall Prime Day event is underway. For more deals we recommend across all categories, check out our full roundup here.

We’re moving deeper into fall and inching toward the holidays, which means enticing discounts on wireless earbuds and headphones are starting to become more frequent. Amazon’s October Prime Day 2023 is a great opportunity to nab enticing deals on products from Apple, Beats, Bose, Google, Samsung, Sony, and other brands.

Whether you’re shopping for noise-canceling buds or something with a semi-open design for outdoor workouts, there’s a nice selection to pick from. We’ll be updating the list of deals over the course of both days to highlight our favorite sales.

Earbuds and headphones under $100

  • Amazon’s “semi-in-ear” Echo Buds are on sale for $34.99, a 30 percent discount compared to their regular $49.99 price. With multipoint Bluetooth and a comfort-first design, they’re a decent pick if you want to take Alexa on the go.
