Update: Amazon Prime Day has officially ended for 2022, but see below for what kind of deals were on offer and to check if any discounts are still live.

Amazon Prime Day 2022 has wrapped up in Australia, but there's still some considerable savings to be had across some hi-fi and audio-visual kit. The pickings are certainly much more slim than they were during the height of the sales event, but there's a bargain or two still lurking.

Whether it's a great score on some premium noise-cancelling over-ear headphones, super affordable true wireless buds, compact and value-packed soundbars or bookshelf speakers, we've got you covered.

While there are plenty of savings to be had for all shoppers, some of the best offers are a members-only affair, so you'll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the offers. Thanks to Amazon's 30-day Prime free trial (opens in new tab), there is always the option to sign up, bag a few bargains, and then cancel your membership.

On this page, we'll be covering all the best deals in the hi-fi and AV categories during Amazon's big Prime Day event, so stay tuned to score the top bargains during the sales.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022 in Australia?

Prime Day 2019 was a two-day sale of pretty much non-stop deals that started at midnight on 15th July, 2019. In Australia, it kicked off at local AEST time, but ended when the sales event finished in the US, making for a marathon 65-hour shopping event. Back in 2018, it was a 36-hour shopping spree that landed on 16th July. 

The Prime Day 2020 sales were pushed back to October 13, kicking things off on midnight (local time) with sales extending via US sellers until 6PM on October 15, totalling an insane 66 hours.

In 2021, Prime Day ran from June 21 (12am AEST) and continue across June 22 and 23, making it a 65-hour marathon session, with the first two dates dedicated to Australian stockists and the last 17 hours carrying on the discounts via US and UK sellers.

The dates have now been announced by Amazon, and as we expected, the shopping event will last 65 hours, kicking off at 12am (AEST) July 12 and running till 5pm (AEST) July 14. The first 48 hours (ending midnight July 14) will be Australian sales, while in the remaining 16 hours, Aussie shoppers will still be able to grab a bargain from US and UK Amazon discounts.

What is Amazon Prime Day?

Starting out in the US, Amazon Prime Day quickly grew into a major online shopping event full of huge discounts and savings on the latest and greatest tech, and naturally there's a selection of hi-fi and AV gear amongst it.

It began as a single day (hence the name) but has swollen to a multi-day event now, with fresh bargains dropping across a two (and a bit) day period in Australia.

Prime Day is Amazon's take on Black Friday. While every online retailer gets involved in the now-annual Black Friday bargain bun fight, Prime Day is all about Amazon.

The special day of deals is a members-only affair, so you'll need to be a Prime member to take advantage of the offers. Thanks to Amazon's 30-day Prime free trial (opens in new tab), there is always the option to sign up, bag a few bargains, and then cancel your membership.

Prime members are also able to take advantage of time-limited 'Lightning deals', alongside those broader Prime Day deals available across the site.

Amazon Australia promises new deals every few minutes, with the deals dropping on the website and on the Amazon app (which gave members an early heads-up on the deals). 

Last year, Prime Day ran in the UK, US, Spain, Mexico, Japan, India, Italy, Germany, France, China, Canada, Belgium, Austria, Singapore, Netherlands, Luxembourg, and, of course, Australia.
