Apple’s entry-level AirPods 2 are near their lowest price of all time. Yes, Apple’s AirPods 3 have better sound quality and spatial audio, but many people still like the fit (and price) of the AirPods 2, which are slightly smaller than the AirPods 3 and have longer stems.

Sony’s cheap on-ear CH-520 headphones are down to just $38, matching their low price to date. They don’t have noise cancellation and are quite basic, but they offer good sound for their price, are lightweight and quite comfortable for on-ear headphones, and also have excellent battery life (they have a lifespan of up to 50 hours at a moderate volume levels). Plus, they feature multipoint Bluetooth pairing, so you can pair them with two devices at the same time, such as a smartphone and a computer, and switch audio. Voice calling performance is decent, but not at the level of what you get with the over-ear CH-720N.

What makes these Soundpeats Air3 Deluxe HS earbuds special is that they sound surprisingly good for open earbuds – they’re pretty close in sound to what you get from Apple’s AirPods 3. Plus, they support Sony’s LDAC audio codec for devices that have this to offer. There aren’t many cheap open earbuds with good sound, but these Soundpeats have decent bass response and clarity. They’re also good for calling and have a low-latency gaming mode. Battery life is 5 hours at moderate volume levels, and these are IPX4 splashproof.

Beats’ new Studio Pro headphones may not be worth $350, but at $170 they’re certainly worth considering, matching their low price to date. We’re inclined to describe them as more affordable plastic versions of the AirPods Max. That’s not entirely accurate, due to the choice in chipsets and a notable missing feature, but read our full Beats Studio Pro review to find out what makes these very good headphones – with some caveats.

Edifier makes some good-sounding PC speakers and truly wireless earbuds, and it has done a good job with its W820NB noise-canceling headphones, now in their second-generation version, the Edifier W820NB Plus. Although they don’t have a cord for wired listening, they are among the best sounding budget noise canceling headphones and are comfortable to wear too.

Sony’s entry-level noise-cancelling headphones are priced at $52 off, marking their lowest price yet. They have a bit of a plastic-budget look, but they are lightweight and very comfortable. We were pleasantly surprised by their sound. No, they don’t sound as good as the WH-1000XM5s, but they sound more premium than they look (and feel), and their performance overall is a significant step up from their predecessor, the CH-710Ns.

Most cheap noise-canceling headphones aren’t great, but Anker’s Soundcore Life Q20i are an exception. They’re pretty decent at their regular list price of $70, but you can get them for just $40 at Best Buy.

Should you buy headphones on Black Friday?

Black Friday is usually one of the best times of the year for electronics deals, and that includes things like headphones and earbuds. While there are some deals happening throughout the year, like Prime Day, these are few and far between, and we’ve already passed both Prime Day events for this year. As such, this is probably the best time to buy headphones until next summer.

Where’s the best place for Black Friday headphone deals?

The big retailers – like Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart and Target – often have the biggest deals. That said, many brands also offer deals on their own websites, so you might want to take a look at the websites of Samsung, Sennheiser, JBL and possibly Apple, although they rarely offer deals.

What makes a good Black Friday headphone deal?

One thing to keep in mind is that a product’s list price doesn’t always tell you its true value, especially as retailers have started offering Day 1 deals on products. Often the list price is artificially inflated to make the deal look more attractive, so you’ll want to shop around and see what the true value or “street price” of a product is. There are useful historical price checking sites that can help you check if the deal is actually noteworthy or if it is regularly discounted. You may also want to install CNET’s Shopping plugin to give you some help with that.
