Best Prime Day headphone deals

Below, we’re sharing the best headphone Prime Day deals. All of our recommendations are based on our previous coverage and reporting. We also included a handful of products we’ve tried ourselves, which have featured in our best wireless earbuds and best noise canceling headphones guides. To ensure the quality of each deal, we’re running deals through price trackers like CamelCamelCamel — each product is either at its lowest price ever or its lowest price in at least three months.

Bose QuietComfort 45 Wireless Headphones

4.6-star average rating from 19,472 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

You often see passengers on airplanes, trains and subways wearing these high-end commuter headphones — and for good reason. They offer an incredible level of comfort, allowing listeners to wear them for long periods. These headphones have high-fidelity audio, 22 hours of battery life and the ability to swap between active noise cancellation and an ‘aware’ mode that lets sound filter in, according to the brand. They are a great choice over the Sony WH-1000XM4 if you prefer clickable buttons instead of touch controls, too.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II

4.1-star average rating from 8,015 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

A new all-time low price for these excellent wireless earbuds on Amazon, which are featured in our best noise canceling headphones guide. These in-ear Bose headphones shrink down noise cancellation technology to an impressive size. They have a six-hour battery life, and the charging case can go 24 hours before needing a recharge, according to the brand.

Sony WH-1000XM4 Headphones

4.7-star average rating from 52,436 reviews on Amazon

These over ear headphones are noise canceling, deliver crisp audio and can be wired or wirelessly. These headphones also fold down to a compact carrying case, which makes them great to take on the go. Touch controls on the ear cups can help you change the volume, pause and skip tracks.

Beats Studio Buds True Wireless Earbuds

4.4-star average rating from 76,618 reviews on Amazon

These stylish Beats earbuds are almost half price with this Amazon Prime deal, making it a great time to buy. With IPX4 water and sweat resistance, they’re a good pick if you’re looking for headphones to wear outdoors or while playing sports. The headphones have eight hours of battery life and the charging case can go 24 hours before needing a charge, according to the brand.

Beats Studio Pro Wireless Headphones

4.4-star average rating from 245 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

This Beats Studio Pro discount is the real deal at half off the usual price.  With an impressive 40 hours of battery life, you can go long periods between charges, according to the brand. And you get the same head-tracking and Spatial Audio features of the AirPods Pro listed above. Beats headphones can’t always match the sound quality of a high-end Bose or Sony model, but the Studio Pro is still packed with features, making it a pretty good steal at this price.

JBL Tune Flex Wireless Earbuds

4.1-star average rating from 94 reviews on Amazon

Lowest price ever

Looking for something a little different? These Flex earbuds from JBL can be worn as open-ear headphones that let in outside sound, or you can use the attached eartip for more passive sound isolation. With IPX4 water and sweat resistance, they’re workout ready, plus they have four built-in microphones for calls and an AAC code for improved audio quality over Bluetooth. The headphones have an eight-hour battery life (24 hours with the case) between charges, according to the brand.

JBL Tune Buds Wireless Earbuds

4.2-star average rating from 49 reviews on Amazon

The JBL Tune Buds may cost the same as the Flex earbuds above, but there are some subtle differences. You’ll miss out on the flexible aspect, but get 50% more battery life and the latest 5.3 Bluetooth standard, which may be worth it if you want a good wireless connection that lasts a very long time (12 hours between charges, and 36 total with the included charging case, according to the brand).

SHOKZ OpenRun Pro Bone Conduction Headphones

4.6-star average rating from 13,264 reviews on Amazon

If you’re not interested in blocking out environmental noise, these sports headphones from SHOKZ may be just the thing. They use bone conduction to transmit sound via vibrations on the side of your head,  with a wraparound titanium band that keeps it secure during workouts. With a 30% discount during Amazon Prime Day Deals, it’s a great time to pick up a pair of these unique headphones that have a 10-hour battery life, according to the brand.

Sennheiser CX Plus True Wireless SE Headphones

4.0-star average rating from 1,572 reviews on Amazon

These in-ear Sennheiser headphones are regularly discounted, but this is the first time since early 2023 that the True Wireless SE earbuds have been this affordable. They’re well reviewed and have a lot of good features, including active noise cancellation and IPX4 water and sweat resistance. This special edition model,  which has 24-hour battery life according to the brand,  is really the same as the other CX Plus earbuds, just with a brushed-metal finish.
