What to expect from Prime Day Headphones & Earbuds deals 2022

As mentioned above, we expect to see a huge range of headphones on offer including models from our best wireless headphones (opens in new tab) and best noise cancelling headphones (opens in new tab) guides. From expensive headphones to cheaper earbuds, Amazon always has great offerings no matter your style or preferences.

Our first prediction is that there will be a mix of over-ear and in-ear headphones and earbuds on sale. While wireless earbuds (opens in new tab) have definitely made a name for themselves with the rise of AirPods, over-ear is still one of the most popular headphones options on the market. The 5-star Sony WH-1000XM5 (opens in new tab) were rated by T3 as the best wireless headphones for most people so we’d love to see them discounted in the sale. Alternatively, we expect to see earlier generations of it on offer like the Sony WH-1000XM4 which have already been given a 27% price cut in the early deals. If you’re an in-ear fan, we expect to see more of these in the sale this year, complete with their charging cases and additional ear tips for comfortable wearing.

Wireless headphones will definitely be the most sought-after in the Prime Day sale this year but we wouldn’t be surprised to see some of the biggest discounts on wired earbuds & headphones. Nowadays, everyone is after wireless options as they’re more convenient and fuss-free but if you don’t mind too much about the wiring, you could get some cheap deals on wired headphones and earbuds (opens in new tab) this year.

Moving on to brands, we expect to see plenty of deals on Sony and Bose this year. Last year, these two brands were amongst the bestsellers but in this year’s Amazon Prime Day announcement, aboutamazon.com (opens in new tab) commented that we’d see: “Amazon’s lowest prices ever on select products from Sony and Bose.” For more brand information, check out which brands will have the best deals in the Prime Day sale (opens in new tab).

In addition to Sony and Bose, we also hope to see discounts on Apple AirPods. While Apple deals are few and far between, AirPods are the one product from Apple that receive discounts the most often. Earlier this year, we’ve seen the AirPods, AirPods Pro and AirPods Max drop to their lowest ever prices on Amazon so we hope to see something similar in the Prime Day sale. As Apple owns Beats and most Beats headphones and earbuds run on Apple chips, we also hope to see Beats deals this year, primarily on the Beats Studio Buds.

Other brands we hope to see and will receive big discounts are Samsung, JBL, Soundcore by Anker, Bowers & Wilkins, JLab and Grado. While we’ll go into more detail about gaming headsets and headphones in an upcoming post, we expect to see price drops on top brands including Jabra, Logitech, Razer and SteelSeries.
