Now is a great time to bag a bargain if you're looking for new headphones. Here, we bring you top tips and the best deals we've seen on headphones so far.
Amazon Prime Day 2018
Prime Day is upon us, which means there's a whole lot of savings to be had on headphones if you have a Prime account. If you don't, you can always sign up for free 30-day trial which you can cancel anytime.
Beats by Dre fans get over £99 off the Solo3 Wireless headphones, which are now £149.99 but was originally £249.95.
There's also over £87 off Nuraphone wireless Bluetooth over-ear headphones, which are now £261.75, reduced from £349. Jabra Move Wireless Bluetooth Headphones also have £45 off, which brings the price down to £34.99 from £79.99.
We'd recommend looking for a good deal on more expensive headphones, rather than buying a pair that's cheap all year round. Not only is the build quality likely to be quite poor on headphones with an RRP of £30 or less, but they'll also offer a bad audio experience that we're sure you'll want to avoid.
There are thousands of headphones deals out there all the time however, so it can be tricky to know which are true bargains and which are worth buying. Here, we bring you our pick of the best ones to save you the trouble.
Headphones deals: What to look for
Headphones can cost anywhere from £5 to £500+ depending on your needs and budget. Whatever you’re listening to is the same but spending a bit more can drastically improve the comfort and quality of your listening experience.
Whether on-ear, in-ear or over-ear, there are some great audio bargains to be had. Though remember that headphones are discounted all year, so make sure you don’t buy just for the sake of it.
Make sure you do a bit of research and pick out what you’d like to save money on, particularly with Beats; there are so many different models that what looks like a good deal could be a lower priced item with not much money off its normal, lower RRP.
We've picked out our top ten for this article but if you want to see even more deals from various different retailers, we'd recommend checking out the following online stores:
