Headphones unlike TVs, don't have a set release schedule. Their price does usually drop over time but not in the same planned and dramatic manner. However, Black Friday does bring some excellent deals. Here's the best we've found on the headphones we recommend:
Headphone Deals (Updated 02/16/2017)
Bluedio Turbine T2s
The Bluedio Turbine T2s are an affordable wireless headset with a powerful bass. They don't have as many features as the Bluedio T3 plus, which are also on sale but they have a better wireless range and overall sound quality. They're also lightweight and somewhat stable enough to run with, but they're not the most comfortable headphones.
Koss Porta Pro
The Porta Pros are popular on-ear headphones that deliver a sound quality on par with much more expensive models. They have a spacious and well-balanced audio reproduction that will easily satisfy casual or critical listeners. They're also compact and comfortable, but they're a bit fragile. They're already pretty affordable, but right now they have a 20% sale that makes them a great recommendation for most listeners.
Level U Pro
The Level U Pro deliver a lot of features for their budget price. They have a good wireless range they're more comfortable than typical in-ear models and provide a simple neckband fit that stable and versatile enough for sports use. They might not be the most well-built headphones, but at their low price, they're worth the investment. The noise canceling variation is also on sale, but we have yet to test that model.
Plantronics BackBeat Pro
The BackBeat Pro are good headphones for almost every use case. They have a powerful bass yet sound good enough to please most listeners. They're well built, comfortable, wireless headsets with best control scheme we've tested so far. Although the noise canceling is not as great as some of the pricier models available on the market, they currently have a decent sale and are one of our most recommended headphones for mixed usage.
The K702 are great critical listening headphones. They have an open design wich delivers a spacious and balanced sound. They're also comfortable to wear for hours at the time without experiencing any fatigue. They're a bit bulky and have the usual, limited use of open headphones, but currently, they have a pretty hefty sale, which makes them a great recommendation for those looking for an excellent pair of open, reference quality headphones at around $200
Samsung Level On Wireless
The Level On Wireless are lightweight, comfortable on-ear headphones, with an above- average sound and a good set of features. They're noise canceling, they have a reliable and fast wireless connection and a great battery life. Their build quality feels a bit flimsy compared to some other on-ear headphones, but at their current discounted price they're worth the investment.
The Venstone X1 are straightforward, budget sports headphones. They're not the best sounding or the most versatile, but they have a stable ear-hook design for running and exercising. Also, they're so cheap that you could purchase spares just in case one breaks especially that right now they're on sale for less than 10$.
