Amazon has the Galaxy buds on sale for $100. We have seen them at this price before, but it is about as low as the get. Although they are not great for making phone calls, they are a decent set of true wireless earbuds, a good AirPods alternative, especially for the Galaxy-smartphone owners and Android users).

These sporty earphones are not “true wireless” — it is a connection cable between the left and right earpiece, which wraps around the back of the neck. But they are totally waterproof, and they’re half right now.

The Beats Pro are back, back to the sale on the previous all-time low price of $200. A bit of a mixed bag, the Beats Pro have good sound quality, battery life, and you remain safely plugged ears. But you have to cart in an awkward, large housing, which is not particularly pocket-friendly. If you don’t mind the large case, though, you are not to find these earphones for a better price.

If you are looking for a cheap, comfortable over-the-ear wireless headphones, Earfun s-wave is an excellent budget choice, which sounds neat, good battery life, and well-cushioned ear cups. It is normally $50, but when she sinks the code EARFUN17 at the checkout on Amazon, the price is $30. I like the sound of the Tribit XFree tune a little better (it is on sale for $26), but this model is comfortable to wear. It comes with a case, but the headphones flat-folding (fold up), the case ends up being pretty bulky. This is their only disadvantage. 


On Thanksgiving day, the Rose Gold edition of the QuietComfort 35 II was on sale for $249 or $100 off. The offer is over, but the black and silver versions (as well as rose gold) is on sale for Cyber Monday for $279. With the arrival this year of Bose new Noise Cancelling-700 headphones ($400), you can sales expect to continue on the QuietComfort 35 II, which is still a very good headphones, is probably a bit more comfortable than the 700.

they’re back: Best Buy has the JLab-Audio-JBuds-Air earphones, on sale for $30. They normally retail for $50. JLabs makes a lot of true wireless headphones and these are the most affordable-and frankly, the single, would I have to buy. It’s a decent set of true wireless earbuds, which is a relative bargain at this price.


Best Buy and Amazon the Jabra Elite-65t earphones (CNET gave an Editors’ Choice Award last year) on sale for $100 (not available in all colors, but you are in luck, if you have your eye on a Gold-Beige or Titan Black).

at the beginning of November, the noise-Cancelling AirPods Per are regularly priced at $250, but are currently available for $235. This small discount is ideal for those looking for a diving upgrade your existing AirPods, or those who want to, in a truly wireless audio experience. Note that these keep going in and out of the “backlog” status, so now it seems to be a delay in shipping.

save $100 on the Sennheiser HD 4.50 R-model now at Best Buy. The only difference between it and the HD 4.50 BTNC version that I reviewed, that the accent color is red instead of silver. (The BTNC model is also on sale at Best Buy, but for $130.) At this price, you have a solid budget alternative to the premium models from Bose and Sony.

The latest version of Jabra’s popular “value” on-ear headphones, on the Move, is on sale for $40 off at various retailers. The headphones are available in three new colors (navy, gold, beige and black) and I have to live with a dent in the battery. At $60, it is a nice offer for someone looking for affordable, high-quality on-ear Wi-Fi headphones.

Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart short, the WH had 130-XB900N on sale for $. The offer is gone, but Amazon still has some units on sale for $148 (in blue). They are comfortable to wear and have a USB-C charging, a good battery life and effective noise reduction. They also work decent as a headset for making phone calls, and the sound quality is good, as long as you don’t mind a preponderance of bass.

Amazon has Klipsch the T5-True Wireless earbuds on sale for $50 off I was impressed with their sound-it is beautiful detailed, with natural-sounding MIDs, and punchy, well-defined bass. The only downside is, you really have to get to jam the tips into your ears, which is a good sealing and blocking, the noise, and the design may not be for all. 

While the Zippo-inspired case is a bit heavy for its relatively compact size, it is elegant and robust with a USB-C charging. Battery life is also a highlight: The earphones themselves can be up to 8 hours on a single charge with moderate volume and the housing, with its built-in rechargeable battery offers three additional charges on the go. 

The T5 Wireless earphones using Bluetooth, 5.0, and support for AAC and AptX. The water-resistance, they are splash-proof (IPX4 certified).

Best Buy has the all-black version of the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3150 true wireless earbuds on sale for $50 off. The open design allows ambient noise (a safety feature for runners), while the BackBeat Fit 3200 has a noise-isolating design that helps improve the sound quality, especially the bass. That is, both models have the same driver, so that you can produce the same sound-you hear it differently, thanks to the design of the earbuds. Both are an improvement over the previous Backbeat 3100 model, which had/have some problems with the connectivity.

As is the case with the Beats Pro, the only drawback is that the BackBeat Fit 3150 earphones a large load case, the not-so-pocket-friendly.

The BackBeat Fit 6100 over-the-ear wireless headphones are a very good choice, both for the gym and everyday use. The adjustable sport-fit headband has an IPX5-rated water-resistant and sweat-resistant design, angled 40mm drivers and noise isolating earcups, the with a consciousness-mode. Life of the battery has a nominal voltage of 24 hours. I thought they were a little expensive at $180, but Best Buy for $110, which makes them even more attractive.
