Amazon is doing Bose's excellent SoundLink On-Ear Bluetooth Wireless Headphones for £60 off. That still leaves it at £119, but it's worth a punt.

Google's Chromecast Audio is half price at just 15 quid at Currys. Just plug it in to any speaker or system with a line in, and you can stream audio from any Android device, PC or Mac from a plethora of sources. That is an absolute steal for any Android-owning music lover. 

And for those looking to stream video, the same shop has the Google Chromecast for just £20, down from £30.

Along similar lines, Amazon's Fire Stick is a tenner off at £24 at, of course, Amazon. Every year…

After a soundbar?

AO has the LG SH-05 Bluetooth soundbar with wireless woofer for £199. That's £50 off the RRP.

The more powerful Samsung HW-J6000R is £130 off at £299. It also packs Bluetooth and a wireless sub, and is curved, just like lots of TVs briefly were, a year or so ago. 

At Currys, the Samsung HW-K430 soundbar with subwoofer is over £150 off at £129. 

If you've been after a 2.1 system for your TV, this does a standup job for the money, although the lack of HDMI (it's Bluetooth and optical only) may explain the hefty price cut.

LG's SH6 All-in-1 Sound Bar might be an even better option at £209.99, down from £400. It features Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, HDMI, digital and analogue inputs, but no subwoofer. Get one from Amazon if you prefer one-box solutions. 

Monster iSport in-ears are among our favourite headphones for exercise and running, thanks to powerful audio and rock-solid fit.

Currys has them at a better-than-half-price £39.99. 

B&O Play Beoplay H3 and H2. With wired headphones possibly on their way out, there are plenty of deals on Bluetooth-lacking listening devices. 

These really rather excellent in-ears from the masters of 'lifestyle audio' are £109 at Amazon - that's £90 off. 

Meanwhile the on-ear H3 are under £100, with 70 quid off the RRP.

The similarly slightly aged, but still good B&O Play Beoplay A2 Bluetooth speaker is half price from the same retailer, at £149.

There are big discounts on Flexon Sonos wall brackets and accessories at Amazon.  

We rate the Optoma NuForce BE6i headphones highly. Although they are a bit on the hefty side for in-ears, they stay in place better than we expected, and audio is excellent. 

Considering the design is stripped down to just two buds on either end of a wire with a remote in the middle, the 8-hour battery life is a nice surprise, too. Remarkable what they can do nowadays.

At £69.99, they're 30% off at Amazon right now.

Philips SHB8850NC Wireless Noise-Cancelling on-ear Bluetooth Headphones are an affordable but winning combination of style and sound. And they're now £34.99 at, which is better than half price. Get in!
