Cyber Monday headphones deals have peaked now that the Black Friday warm-up event is over! The official day is here and the headphones deals are hot – some are Black Friday deals carried over, while others even beat the Black Friday discount.

So whether you're after a pair of wireless noise-cancelling over-ears or AirPods-style true wireless earbuds (or AirPods themselves!), now is as good a time to buy as any – especially as there are currently huge (and in some cases, unprecedented) discounts on several five-star and What Hi-Fi? Award-winning pairs.

You'll find a hoard of hugely discounted pairs on our best Cyber Monday headphones deals page, but here is our pick of the very best deals – because why scroll and scroll (and scroll) when you don't have to? Our educated picks (we review hundreds of headphones every year, so you can trust us) cover some of the world's most reputable headphones brands, including Sony, Bose, Apple and Sennheiser.

Happy shopping!

Beats Flex $70

Beats Flex $70 $39 at Amazon (save $31)
A solid, decent-sounding set of entry-level wireless earbuds – and, as there's a wire between the earbuds, you’ll never worry about losing one. For those after an affordable, Apple-centric neckband design, the Beats Flex offers just the thing. Four stars

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless $400

Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless $400 $219.98 at Amazon (save $180)
These superb-sounding noise-cancelling cans launched at $350 but, following their intense popularity, rose as high as $400. Now, they're nearly half price! They're excellent all-rounders and a great Cyber Monday headphones deal.

Sony WH-1000XM4: $350

Sony WH-1000XM4: $350 $248 at Amazon (save $102)
Our favourite wireless noise-cancelling headphones, period. Sony’s premium XM4 deliver a sonic masterclass and nothing really lets that down – battery life, build, comfort and usability are all great for the money. Five stars, What Hi-Fi? Award winner

Sony WH-CH710N $180

Sony WH-CH710N $180 $78 at Best Buy (save $102)
Can't afford the premium Sony WH-1000XM4 above? These more midrange wireless noise-cancellers from Sony could be just the ticket. We haven't tested the WH-CH710N, but they promise an upgrade over their predecessors, which we liked for their detailed, musical performance and great battery life. A safe bet at this price, we'd say.

Beats Solo 3 Wireless $299

Beats Solo 3 Wireless $299 $125 at Walmart (save $175)
Not the most subtle headphones out there, but with impressive wireless technology, a stylish design and this saving, those shortcomings can be quickly overlooked. The deal varies depending on your colorway – this discount is for the gold model.

AirPods Pro $250

AirPods Pro $250 $169.99 at Amazon (save $80)
We called the AirPods Pro "exceptionally comfortable" and praised their "strong noise-cancelling and balanced, easy-going sound". Now, they're even better thanks to spatial audio support, with a brand-new MagSafe case. Four stars

Sony WF-1000XM3

Sony WF-1000XM3 $230 $128 at Amazon (save $102)
While now surpassed by the $248 WF-1000XM4, these true wireless earbuds are still fantastic buys – especially at this hugely discounted price. They combine effective active noise-cancelling with a real sense of musicality. Five stars, What Hi-Fi? Award winner

AirPods Max $549

AirPods Max $549 $429 at Crutchfield (save $120)
The awesome AirPods Max are in stock at Crutchfield in space gray and silver colourways – and you can now make a decent Cyber Monday saving! Five stars, What Hi-Fi? Award winner


Beats Studio Buds $150 $99.95 at Walmart (save $50)
Walmart has $50 off all three colours of the Beats Studio Buds – red, black and white. The deal also includes free shipping and a 30-day free returns window. We called these new Beats "a neat true wireless solution that represents one of the best affordable alternatives to Apple’s AirPods we’ve seen so far". So, what are you waiting for? Four stars

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds $279

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds $279 $199 at Best Buy (save $80)
The fantastic, five-star true wireless earbuds combine brilliant noise-cancelling tech with natural, dynamic sound. They're worthy challengers to the AirPods Pro – especially now they've dropped to this low price. Five stars
