The holiday season is upon us, and that means all the big-box stores are competing against each other to offer the best prices on electronics. What was once a 24-hour period of flash deals the day after Thanksgiving has now become a holiday in and of itself — Black Friday is an event you don't want to miss.
When it comes to smartphone accessories, there are plenty of great sales. We've scoured the web to find the latest deals on headphones, in particular, so whether you're looking for a set of cans, a pair of wireless earbuds, or anything in between, you're sure to find great savings in the list below. We organized the deals by retailer so if you don't find anything palatable in the first group, just keep reading.
There's no better place for headphones deals this Black Friday than Amazon. The company has deals running all week, so you won't have to wait to take advantage of the savings. We've taken the liberty of featuring our favorite sales on both over-the-ear and in-ear headphones. That being said, there are many, many more deals than the ones listed here. Check out all of Amazon's headphones deals for all the discounts it currently has.
Amazon isn't clear as to when these sales end, just that this "week" is Black Friday Deals Week. Expect sales to be time-based Lightning deals as well as regular sales that could end Friday or Sunday at the latest.
