Black Friday 2023 headphones deals
Black Friday 2023 is over, so it's time we do a quick recap now and take into account all of the sweet deals that we came across in 2023. Like with previous years, we saw lots of headphone deals during the Black Friday shopping spree, and we gave you the best ones here.

So let us look at the type of headphones and earbuds offers we saw during the now-passed Black Friday, to maybe prepare ourselves even better for the 2024 edition. Actually, wait! There are still some pretty good discounts right now, just before the holidays, so let's take a look!

Also, feel free to also check out our Amazon Spring Sale 2024 expectations, as we have a hunch that Amazon will most likely launch a Spring Sale event in 2024 as well.

Black Friday deal recap on Apple AirPods

Apple's ever-so-popular AirPods were one of the company's most well-discounted products during Black Friday 2023. The AirPods Max, for example, saw a $100 price cut, which amounts to 18% of their usual price. The 3rd-gen AirPods also saw a similar discount, maxing out at 17%, while the previous 2nd-gen AirPods were down by as much as 38% at one point!

Sadly, the AirPods Pro did not get the same sweet deal treatment as the rest of the pack. The best deal we saw was hovering around the $50 mark.

Black Friday headphones offers: Samsung Galaxy Buds

Even more so than Apple's AirPods, the Galaxy Buds from Samsung saw even more and higher discounts throughout the 2023 Black Friday shopping event. The Galaxy Buds 2 and Galaxy Buds FE, for example, enjoyed discounts between 20-33%, with the larger majority reaching the higher end of that range.

What was more exciting, however, was the fact that the Galaxy Buds 2 Pro went for a 35% lower price than they usually cost, which is $73 less.

Best Black Friday offers on Bose, Beats, Sennheiser, JBL and others

There is much more in the world of wireless headphones than just AirPods and Galaxy Buds, however, and boy oh boy did those other options get discounted.

The Jabra Elite 5 went almost for half their price, going down by $70, while the Jabra Elite 4 Active saw a price cut of 43%. The popular Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II also went down by $80, which is 29% of their usual price tag, while the Bose Headphones 700 over-head headphones cost $100 less than usual.

Other memorable deals included the Sennheiser MOMENTUM 3 that was on Amazon with a 36% discount, alongside the Sennheiser Momentum 4 which you could get with a $100 discount.

Black Friday headphones deals: Sony wireless headphones

For some peculiar reason, Sony was a bit conservative when it came to its headphones during Black Friday 2023. The best we saw in terms of offers was an 18% discount for the Sony WH-1000XM5 and 7% for the Sony WF-1000XM5. There were offers for some of the older models too, but definitely not high enough to be considered truly Black Friday levels.

Which wireless headphones to buy on Black Friday?

You can absolutely strike deals on Apple's AirPods or Samsung's Galaxy Buds — both brands are excellent, but it all depends on which ecosystem you are in. iDevice users will get the most out of the AirPods, as they seamlessly switch through your various devices that are logged into the same iCloud account. Galaxy Buds will very easily connect to a Galaxy phone (but work well with any other mobile, really).

Sony's buds and headphones offer their own 360 Reality Audio, which functions and sounds like Apple Spatial Audio (Sony's technology actually precedes it). Furthermore, Sony earphones are praised for fantastic noise-cancelation and pass-through options.

The Sennheiser offers are amazing for those that demand quality from a company with a long history in making audio products.

Are Black Friday headphone deals worth it?

Absolutely — we saw some pricey models drop by half, which is quite a lot when the MSRP of the headset is around the $400 mark. The Galaxy Buds 2, for example, also fell well below $100, which makes them an insta-buy in our minds. A disciplined trigger finger is sure to net you a good deal during the Black Friday events, especially on headphones!

Where to find the best headphone deals on Black Friday?

Major retailers are your best bet — they have lots of stock and huge drawing power, thus they are capable of reducing prices the most. In fact, they kind of have to in order to compete with the other big sellers. So, Best Buy, Amazon, Walmart are go-to options. Then, Target, Newegg, B&H Photo and Video — these probably won't have an exclusive deal, but they will almost match the discounts from the big players. If you are shopping for something from one specific store, you might as well fill up your cart and only pay for (and deal with) shipping once.
