Best Prime Day headphones deals

Headphones

Sony WH-1000XM4

Sony WH-1000XM4: was $348 now $248 @ Amazon
One of the best pairs of noise-cancelling headphones around, the WH-1000XM4 produces a great sound, offers awesome battery life and features powerful ANC, making it a worthwhile successor to the Sony WH-1000XM3. You have a choice of black, silver or blue color options, all of which cost the same discounted price.

Bose 700

Bose 700: was $399 now $229 @ Amazon
The only offputting aspect of the Bose 700 is its high list price, but with almost a 50% discount, that's no longer a problem. Bose's top pair of wireless cans has even better noise cancellation than that of the WH-1000XM4, not to mention clear microphones for voice calls and excellent overall sound quality.

Jabra Elite 45H

Jabra Elite 45H: was $99 now $47 @ Amazon
Despite its budget-friendly price, this pair of on-ear headphones offers the sound quality you want in a svelte package. It also manages the longest battery life of any set of headphones on this page, making it ideal for long trips away from the charger.

Sony WH-CH710N

Sony WH-CH710N: was $199 now $78 @ Amazon
Offering the essential Sony headphone experience for less, you get a lot of battery life and good sound quality for your money with the WH-CH710N. It also features Sony's highly effective noise-cancelling technology; ANC in general is a rarity at this price.

Sony WH-XB900N

Sony WH-XB900N: was $248 now $118 @ Amazon
If you don't have the cash to afford the WH-1000XM4, then here's a good alternative from Sony itself. In addition to broadly similar styling, the WH-XB900N gets you touch controls, ANC and customizable EQ via a companion app, all for less than half of the WH-1000XM4's discounted price.

True Wireless Earbuds

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple AirPods Pro: was $249 now $189 @ Amazon
Amazon has the AirPods Pro on sale for $189, a few dollars less than the earbuds' $197 price from last week's early deals.

Amazon Echo Buds 2

Amazon Echo Buds 2: was $119 now $79 @ Amazon
