Black Friday looms in the distance (November 24th to be exact) which means it is time to stop spending, start looking for sales, and soon enough begin saving your coins! Literally, it’s never too early. That being said, keep checking-in on our “Best Black Friday Headphone Deals 2017” article, as we will be regularly updating this feature.
Best Black Friday Headphone Deals 2017: Sales, Predictions, Other Tech, Cyber Monday
Update 10/09/2017: This just in. Audio46 Headphones Store in NYC is currently hosting a Black Friday promotion in which you can start saving now. Purchase any headphone from Audio 46 now and if the price drops from now until Black Friday, they’ll reimburse you. That includes Black Friday sale specials as well.
Super savings may not be posted as of yet, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t savings to be had. Consumer reporter and Black Friday guru, Matt Granite of WKYC, basically revealed in a BF article that it’s never too early to start BF shopping. If you’re looking to beat the crowd, you can definitely get head by purchasing right now! Yep, right now. Many of the sales you see going on right now through Columbus Day are actually the same sales price you’ll see on Black Friday. That’s because companies use this time to strategically test their projected deals (both online and in-store) and use that data to strategize on how to place products on the big day. Granite adds that Treblab XR800 wireless water-resistant earbuds are currently marked down over 70%, selling for $49.99 (retail $169.99). I truly hope this is an indication for much bigger brands. But if it’s not, we’ve still got your covered with incoming updates and predictions on the brands that’ll be holding major blowout sales. Amazon usually has a load of tech deals and we will be sure to link them all here. For those specifically looking into headphones, Audio 46 super-store holds both in-store and online deals that we will link as we find them. Target is also notorious for holding truly remarkable deals on Beats headphones while Best Buy is a destination for saving on Bose. There’s also retailers that might forget to check, like, Overstock.com, Kohl’s, Kmart, and BJ’s Wholesale.

These promotions are happening, baby!
FiiO is going to have a blowout on some of their fun audio products on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Users can expect savings on products on their amplifiers and players. Starting at the top, the X5 Mark III is going to retail for $349.95, that’s $50 in savings. The FiiO X1 Mark II is dropping down to $84.99 from $100. Then there’s small savings to be had with the A1, A3, and A5, as they’ve been marked down to $21.99 (formerly $29.99), $54.99 (formerly $59.99), and $109.99 (formerly $129.99), respectively.
My sources have been delivering some of the best insider news to me and Sennheiser fans will be happy to know that the German headphone giant has some great discounts ahead for their customers. Starting November 12, Sennheiser HD1 AEBT over-ear (wireless and noise cancelling) headphones will be marked down a whopping $100. The wired version of the HD 1 (that’s without active noise cancelling and Bluetooth) will also be marked down an entire $100. What bout the PXC 550? I’m glad you asked, it’s also marked down (drum roll please) an entire $100!!! This promo will run through November 27. I think there may be some other promotions, but those I’ve detailed those suspected savings in the predictions section below.
Best Black Friday Headphone Deals 2017 – Brand Predictions
The German company seems to have started their Black Friday sale early. Sennheiser’s HD 559 has dropped in price from $149 to $99.95. Sennheiser also lowered the price of the HD 569 from $179.95 to $149.95 and the HD 599 from $249 to $199.95. My sources tell me this sale will run through the end of December, but that doesn’t mean these exciting products will be in stock by that time. Basically, get on this now.
Last year, Amazon was the site to be on when looking for discounted headphones. For Sennheiser fans Urbanite XL Wireless headphones were selling at a steal – $150 rather than $300. That being said, I’m looking forward to whatever cans will be available for at an incredible price this year.
If what cyber sales Guru, Matt Granite, says is true, then Samsung’s Gear IconX, currently on a blowout price of $50 – marked down from $200, will retail for $50 on Black Friday. That’s if any more pairs of these truly wireless buds are in stock. Regardless, if you’ve got $50 to spare, grab a set while you still can at Samsung.com.
Sony was also a major player on Amazon, dropping the price on their MDR-ZX770BT from $100 to $59.99. In addition Sony’s MDR-XB950 BT was on sale at Amazon for $88 rather than $129.99 – a clear indication (to me) that Sony fans will be in luck this holiday.
Best Buy sold some of Bose’s most popular pairs (i.e. QuietComfort 20) for about $50 off the retail price. Bose also held similar savings on their own website. I’m expecting the same this year. We’ll be sure to list links as soon as we have ’em.
If this year’s Target sale is anything close to the sale the retail giant held last black Friday, then there are major savings to be had in the Beats department. Users who signed up for Target’s Early Access Deals were able to purchase Beats at incredibly low prices. Beats Solo 2 Wireless at one point sold for $119.99 and at $239.99 at a later date. At Best Buy Beats Solo 2 Wireless will be sold for $150 while Beats Powerbeats2 Wireless sold at both Best Buy and Target for $89.99, rather than the current retail price of $139.99.
Apple iPhone and Watch
Last year, Apple snobs saw a few amazing promotions for BF – with $100 discounts and gift cards thrown in with purchases. Target offered the iPhone 7 or 7 Plus for zero money down with the purchase of a qualified network plan. They also threw in a $250 Target gift card. Since the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X will be hot off the press at that, I’m thinking we may see this deal reiterated. If so, that’s a nice reward for those who wait and battle it for the next generation iPhones on BF.
Skullcandy, while holding their own BF blowout sale last year, could also be found on Kmart with 50% off discounts on select models (i.e. Skullcandy Uproar Wireless).
