18 Best Black Friday Headphone and Speaker Deals (2020): Beats, Sonos, Sony

One thing's clear this holiday season: We're all going to be stuck indoors for a while longer. What better way to enjoy that time than with an audio upgrade? I've spent the past few years testing nearly all the latest and greatest headphones and speakers, and have scoured this year's Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals pages for my favorites. The good news is that this year is good for sound seekers!

Note: We strike through items that sell out or are no longer at their deal price as of publishing. Discounts sometimes return, so check for yourself. We will update this guide throughout the weekend.

★ Best for Applers—AirPods Pro for $170 ($79 off)
Amazon, Walmart, Target ($200) , Best Buy ($200)The AirPods Pro have been on sale a lot lately, but have never dropped this low in price before. Note that shipping is delayed, but you can still order now and they will ship once available. These are great for iPhone, iPad, or MacBook owners, since they pair almost instantly and can switch between Apple devices seamlessly. The sound quality is outstanding, and they have excellent active noise canceling. They're the first version of AirPods to have silicone ear tips, so they're much more comfortable than the non-Pro model, plus you can just plop them on a wireless charger to recharge. We do not recommend Apple's standard, cheaper AirPods. They don't sound great or fit snugly.
