Black Friday wireless earbuds deals

Best AirPods deals October 2020

During Black Friday and Cyber Monday this year, you can expect to find many of the best wireless earbuds on sale for their lowest prices yet. Apple’s AirPods Pro, Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Plus, and other popular models from Jabra, Sony, 1More, and more companies have never been more affordable. If you haven’t yet treated yourself to a set of truly wireless earbuds that connect via Bluetooth, prepare to never look back to using wired earbuds.

We have collected deals across multiple retailers below, and they’re all significantly lower than their usual asking price. As new deals become available or go out of stock, we’ll update this post.

Apple AirPod deals

Apple’s AirPods Pro, pictured above, are the star of Black Friday — and the best deal we’ve seen yet will be launching online through Walmart on Wednesday, November 25th, at 7PM ET / 4PM PT. Their asking price is $250, though they’ve regularly sold for around $200. Walmart’s deal sees the price plummet to $169, though we expect it to sell out extremely fast.

If you’d rather not deal with the hysteria or if you don’t want to shop from Walmart, Woot has the AirPods Pro selling at $190. This was nearly the best before word got around about the Walmart deal. But once that inevitably sells out, you should be able to find stock available at Woot.

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple’s flagship earbuds with better sound quality, noise cancellation, and spatial audio.

For a simpler, less expensive set of AirPods that lack the Pro’s active noise cancellation and snug fit, the standard model is down to $119 (normally $159) at Amazon, Best Buy, and other retailers. It includes a wired charging case.

Apple AirPods

The second generation of Apple’s truly wireless earbuds and the lowest-cost model in the AirPods line.

If you want AirPods that include a case that charges wirelessly via a wireless charger, that model is $150 now (usually $199) at several retailers like Best Buy, Walmart, and Amazon.

Apple itself isn’t honoring the big discounts on AirPods this holiday, but it will give you a $25 gift card and the option for free engraving if you buy some through its online store between November 27th and November 30th.

Samsung Galaxy Bud deals

At Best Buy, you can save on either the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus ($110, usually $150) or the bean-shaped Galaxy Buds Live ($140, usually $170). These prices aren’t anything too special at this point, but these get a nod for including a $20 Best Buy gift card with either set of earphones. The only catch is that you need to buy your earbuds in the Best Buy-exclusive blue colorway.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus wireless earbuds

The Galaxy Buds Plus are a successor to the Galaxy Buds. The biggest change from this model is the improved battery life is nearly doubled compared to the Galaxy Buds.

Jabra deals

Jabra is offering a great deal on its previous-generation Elite 65t wireless earbuds. Normally around $100 (though, they’re commonly available for less), you can pick up a set at Best Buy or Amazon for $70.

Jabra Elite 65t

Jabra’s previous-generation Elite wireless earbuds have a subtle design, and for the price, they offer strong battery life, a solid connection, and come with a compact carrying case.

If you want features like noise cancellation, better sound quality, and a charging case that supports USB-C (unlike the Elite 65t’s Micro USB case), check out the Jabra Elite 75t, their successor. Normally $180, they’re down to $140.

Best Buy says it will discount the Elite 75t further by $10 on Thursday, November 26th, so your final cost then will be $130 before tax.

Other earbud deals

1More’s ColorBuds are down to $80 from $100 at the company’s site and Amazon for Black Friday. For the money, these offer some colorful style and crisp sound quality. They deliver up to six hour of listening per charge, with up to 22 hours provided by the charging case. To get the $80 price at Amazon, you’ll need to clip the coupon on the product page to knock $20 off the cost.

The 1More Colorbuds combine standout style with very good sound quality.

The Sony WF-XB700 wireless earbuds usually cost $130, but they’re down to $68 at a few retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and more. These are a solid pick if you’re looking for a snug fit and better sound quality than you might expect for this price range.

Anker’s Soundcore Liberty Air 2 normally cost $100, but they’re $70 right now at Amazon and Best Buy. In our roundup of the best budget-friendly wireless earbuds, my colleague Chris Welch said these have better microphones for voice calls than any other model he tested in this price range.

The OnePlus Buds wireless earbuds cost $59 through the OnePlus site and from Amazon and B&H Photo. They usually cost $79. The OnePlus Buds Z usually get our recommendation since they are just $50, but for this deal, the standard Buds have larger drivers and a slightly more fashionable carrying case.

OnePlus Buds

OnePlus Buds borrow a few cues from Apple’s AirPods. Design similarities aside, they have strong battery life, decent sound, and they can provide a stable wireless connection.

Amazon’s debut wireless earbuds, the Echo Buds, are back down to their lowest price at Amazon. Normally $130, you can snag a set for $80. For this price, they’re a good value since they feature Bose noise reduction technology and can now track your workouts.

Amazon Echo Buds

Amazon’s Echo Buds offer features like Bose noise reduction, a customizable fit, and great audio at a lower price than options like the AirPods Pro.
