Amazon’s Prime Day celebration often feels like a company getting people excited to clear a warehouse than an event with good deals anymore, but if you know how to look there are a few diamonds in the rough. Take a peep at what we’ve found for 2019.
Editor’s note: Updated 7/16 to add the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT
Sony WH-C700NFull Review
The Sony WH-CH700N might not be the best noise cancelling headphones out there, but they’re definitely not bad. But at a price drop from $200 to $89? They’re a great budget pick.
You may not get all the noise canceling you lust for, and yes: they’re inexpensive. However, they’re not cheap, and that’s kinda the point. This is probably the best deal of the day.
Jabra Elite 65tFull Review
Long in the tooth, the Jabra Elite 65t is now on deep discount in order to compete with the rest of the true wireless field. While they’re a little light on bass, they’re a well-regarded, durable, and long-lasting option for anyone looking to see what true wireless is all about.
1More Stylish True Wireless EarbudsFull Review
1More is another reliable brand that has a deep discount on Prime Day. Their brand new Stylish true wireless earphones are a rock-solid option, and for less than $100 they’re a great buy. If you’re looking for a more affordable option than the 65t above, these will save you a few bills.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBTFull Review
Arguably one of the best Bluetooth headphones without ANC on the market, the Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT usually retails for $179-199. However, it’s available today for $129. We love these headphones, so if you’ve been holding off on buying them—now’s the time.
UltimateEars WONDERBOOMFull Review
Often one of our favorite Bluetooth speakers, the UltimateEars WONDERBOOM (love the all-caps, eh?) is on sale for a respectable price. Waterproof and decent-sounding, this is a great travel or party speaker.
How do you know what’s a good deal on Prime Day?
Prime Day “deals” are often complicated by the fact that sales prices will often be posted as a relationship to the original sticker price, and not what the product was selling for yesterday. Hwoever, there’s an easy fix. By installing a price history browser extension like Camel Camel Camel, you can see if that Prime Day deal is what it says it is.
For our picks, we made sure that each one was on a deep discount before putting it in our lists. That way, the hard part is done for you, and you can get away from Amazon quicker, confident in your purchase.
Hopefully there’s something here that you’ve been wanting. No better time to act on it then when the price drops. Happy shopping!
