The Best Early Black Friday Earbud Deals: Sony, Bose, Apple, More

I don’t go anywhere without my . Nothing fancy: Just the Samsung Galaxy buds that I picked up for $40 a few Black Fridays ago. Their comfortable fit, ease of pairing, and ambient noise feature (which is not quite active noise cancelling, but a lot of earbuds nowadays come with that particular feature) have saved me from a headache when encountering high foot traffic, construction, and even just avoiding unwanted conversation.

If any of that sounds good to you, or even if you just want to listen to your music and podcasts or have a phone conversation hands-free, we’re here to help do just that and save you some money in the process.

Like with any other electronic device purchase, there are a number of things to consider: your budget, the brand and its compatibility with your other devices, and, of course, the features. Check out the specs below for a smoother shopping experience.

These Sony earbuds have it all: rich sound quality, superb in-call mic clarity, wireless charging via the included case, and hands free smart assistant access. Our in-depth called them “the best noise-cancelling earphones for audiophiles” but also noted one negative: that these earbuds were expensive. So, knocking $50 off is a pretty good deal.
