There are plenty of pre-Black Friday deals to be had on Amazon for the rest of this week, especially if you're in the market for a new pair of headphones or a wireless Bluetooth speaker.
Today's bargains include Philips's Fidelio X2HR headphones, down 46 per cent at £145 – that's just £10 more than they were on Amazon Prime Day if you missed them then.
We haven't tested this particular Philips pair of headphones, but we did review – and award five stars to – the Philips Fidelio X2 which we praised for their "smooth, neutral sound, taut, punchy bass and good insight" along with "unrivalled comfort and an eye-catching design to boot".
The Fidelio X2HRs boast 50mm drivers, deluxe memory foam ear pads and double-layered, open-backed ear cups engineered for sound precision and a luxurious feel.
We've already mentioned a £70 saving on the Bose QuietComfort 35 II noise-cancelling headphones, and there's a handy 50 per cent off the Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H8 wireless headphones too. That's a chunky £200 discount.
They got a solid four-star review when we tested them at full price. "Style meets great features and good sound in B&O’s flagship on-ears," we said at the time. That's even truer now that they're yours for half price.
Premium design, high quality finish, noise cancelling and 16 hours playback when using Bluetooth alone. As for sound, the H8s are clear, balanced and full-bodied with not a hint of hiss to give away their ‘wirelessness’.
Want a five-star Bluetooth speaker with Alexa voice control at a bargain price? Then how about the Ultimate Ears Blast at just £80, more than half its original price?
We described it as a bit pricey at its original RRP, but loved its energetic performance and fun design which make this wireless speaker a joy to use. At this level of discount, it's a cracking buy.
The rugged exterior and funky design that we love about Ultimate Ears’ speakers is back. Chuck it in your rucksack, take it camping or to the beach – the portable, durable and waterproof Blast will survive all kinds of rough terrain, knocks, drops and downpours.
