News: The Best Black Friday 2017 Deals on Headphones for Your Smartphone

The Best Black Friday 2017 Deals on Headphones for Your Smartphone

Our smartphones have outlived the Walkman, iPod, and even stereo systems, to some degree. So it makes sense to treat your iPhone or Android device to a quality pair of headphones, whether you're a hardcore audiophile or just an everyday music lover. This doesn't come cheap, of course, so why not buy them on Black Friday?

We've rounded up the best places to find the best deals on headphones this holiday season. Most of these deals are running from Thursday, Nov. 23, to Sunday, Nov. 26, but you'll want to check out the circulars for each store to be sure, as some of these are doorbuster deals on Black Thursday and not the weekend. Also, some of the deals are available right now, thanks to Amazon.

Option 1: Amazon's Headphones Deals

Amazon has begun their "Countdown to Black Friday," which means there are deals you can snag right now. Some of these deals will expire before the real holiday shopping weekend actually comes, so we'll make sure to keep you updated on what's actually still discounted.

Over-the-Ear (Aka on-Ear) Headphones

In-Ear Headphones

Option 2: Bose's Headphones Deals

While you can find Bose deals at a variety of stores, why not buy directly from the manufacturer itself? Bose has some great deals on its own headphones this Black Friday. Check out what they're offering below:

Option 3: Target's Headphones Deals

Target has the brand that most people are probably looking for this year — Beats. These headphones are as fashionable as they are fun to listen to, but they usually come with a high price tag. That's why Target hopes to snag your business with some sweet deals on Beats.

The retailer is selling Beasts Studio2 headphones for $159.99. They are normally $379.99, which, by anyone's calculations, is a lot of savings. Also on deck are the Powerbeats3 earphone. While not as dramatic of a price cut, they are going to be on sale for $159.99 on Black Friday. If anyone on your list is asking for these headphones, Target is the place to go.

Option 4: Best Buy's Headphones Deals

Best Buy has the same great deal on Beats Studio2's that Target does. While Best Buy doesn't offer a special on Powerbeats3, they do have deals on other earphones. You can get a pair of Jaybird Freedom F5 or Bose SoundSport headphones for just $49.99, a pair of JLab Audio Epic Air earbuds for $99.99, or Bose SoundTrue Ultra in-ear headphones for $79.99. Best Buy is the place to be for earphones.

In addition, Best Buy offers plenty of on-ear headphones other than Beats Studio2. Bose QuietComfort 25s are only $179.99, Sony headphones are $99.99 to $124.99, and Skullcandy headphones are $$49.99 to $99.99. Best Buy is looking to get your headphone business, that's for sure.

Option 5: NewEgg's Headphones Deals

NewEgg actually has a decent selection of headphones this Black Friday. If you're looking for a pair of Bose, NewEgg is offering a pretty decent deal. There's also deals on Sennheiser, Philips, and Polk Audio. By far the largest price cut comes with the Klipsch Reference on-ear headphones, which are only $29 total.

Option 6: Kmart's Headphones Deals

If you're looking for good deals on Skullcandy headphones specifically, you might want to check out Kmart. Plus, you get $5 cash back on your Skullcandy purchase. However, that cash back comes in the form of points to the store. If you don't feel you'll shop at Kmart further, there really won't be much difference where you buy your headphones.

Option 7: Sears' Headphones Deals

Sears is also offering Skullcandy headphones this Black Friday, though, without any cash back like Kmart, though Sears has a members program too to accumulate points.
