Presidents Day may not have the same deals credentials as Black Friday or Cyber Monday, but it still offers some of the biggest deals of the new year. 

Case in point? These seven headphone and wireless earbuds deals going on over at Amazon and Best Buy. You can use them to save up to $100 off some of the best headphones like the AirPods Max and Bose QuietComfort Headphones, or save a bundle on popular true wireless models like the AirPods Pro 2 and Sony LinkBuds S.

All of the models below have been tested by a team member on Tom's Guide, and most — if not all of these products — show up on our list of the best headphones and best wireless earbuds. In short, the products featured in these deals are all Tom's Guide approved.

Unfortunately, the window for these Presidents Day sales closes fast — and the next big sales holiday won't happen until Memorial Day in May — so don't wait too long before locking in these prices.
