All right, you know the drill: Black Friday is right around the corner, signaling to retailers that it’s O.K. to spam patrons’ inboxes. Unfortunately, Black Friday deals have devolved into sub-par, clickbait deals. Rather than wasting time sifting through a barrage of promotional emails, we’ve culled some Black Friday audio deals that are going on now.
Early Black Friday audio deals
- Amazon Echo 2nd Gen. (refurbished): Typically a refurbished second-generation Echo smart speaker goes for ~$80, but during Amazon’s Black Friday Deals Week, one can be had for $59.99. It has all the same bells and whistles as a new Amazon Echo, including 360-degree sound, but for nearly half the price.
- Shure SE535 BT1 Limited Edition: Shure’s products rarely go on promotion, but the SE535 BT1 is available this week for $50 off. Shure’s SE earphones can be used with its wireless or wired RMCE cables, making it a versatile choice for any audio enthusiast.
- Jabra Move Wireless: Take 50 percent off when buying Jabra’s Move Wireless headphones that operate on Bluetooth 4.0 and provide eight hours of constant playback. This is the same brand that brought the Elite 65T, which remains the best pair of true wireless earbuds.
- iDealUSA V201 headphones: These aptX-supported noise cancelling headphones typically retail for just shy of $200 but are available as an early Black Friday audio deal for ~$70. Plus, as of publishing, consumers can save an additional $8 at checkout.
