Handpicked WIRED Cyber Monday Guides:

Our Favorite Headphone Deals

V-Moda Crossfade Wireless Headphones – $179 ($120 off)

Buy on Microsoft Store

We’re fans of these well-built, great-sounding V-Moda wireless headphones and right now, they’re $120 off. Amazon has the standard wired V-Moda Crossfades for $140, which are also amazing, but this is your ticket to a set of wireless over-ear cans at an affordable price.

Bose SoundSport Wireless Earbuds – $100 ($50 off)

Buy on Amazon

These corded wireless earbuds have 6-hour battery life, Bluetooth and NFC pairing, and should sound great for working out or a walk.

Sennheiser Bluetooth Wireless Headphones – $100 ($50 off)

Buy on Amazon

These Sennheiser fully wireless headphones are on deep discount. They have AptX and Bluetooth 4.0, along with 25 hours of battery life and an optional cord if you don’t want to use up battery. This is a great deal.

Jaybird Freedom F5 – $50 ($100 off)

Buy on Best Buy

If you need a new pair of earbuds, or want to see if you like wireless, we recommend picking up this deal. We loved these buds. At one third their regular price, your wallet will love them, too.

Bose QuietComfort 25 Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones – $180 ($120 off)

Buy on Amazon, Microsoft Store

These Bose wireless headphones are extremely popular among gear writers here at WIRED. They are the headphones we keep coming back to, and that’s saying something. Give your chosen loved one the gift of sweet, sweet silence.

Skullcandy Uproar Wireless Headphones – $25 ($25 off)

Buy on Walmart

These wireless headphones won’t redefine audio, but they’re a bargain at $25. They have great reviews and should give you a great all-around sound without breaking the bank.

Sennheiser OCX 686i Workout Headphones – $35 ($35 off)

Buy on Amazon

Sennheiser’s great sound quality, combined with secure ear clips and anti-bacterial ear adapters, make this a no-brainer.

Beats by Dr. Dre BeatsX – $100 ($50 off)

Buy on B&H Photo, Amazon

Featuring the new Apple W1 chip for easy iPhone pairing, these wireless headphones are cheaper than we’ve ever seen anywhere!

Our Favorite Wireless Speaker Deals

Amazon Echo Dot – $30 ($20 off)

Buy on Amazon, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond

Toss your Echo and Echo Show out the window (okay, don’t actually do that) and replace it with the small, discreet Echo Dot.

Anker SoundCore 2 Bluetooth Speaker – $31 ($10 off)

Buy on Amazon

For about $30, you can’t get better than Anker’s SoundCore Bluetooth speaker. It’s no Megaboom, but there’s a reason it’s an Amazon best seller.

Alexa Tap – $80 ($50 off)

Buy on Amazon

This is an amazing price on an Alexa-enabled speaker that you can take with you everywhere. Sound quality is decent, but not quite as good as some Bluetooth speakers.

Google Home – $80 ($50 off)

Buy on Walmart, Jet

Google’s first home assistant device is on deep discount, putting it well below $100. This functions as a handy aid around the home, but also has a nice speaker inside to pump up the jams.

Google Home Mini – $30 ($20 off)

Date: Nov. 24

Buy on Walmart, Jet

Google’s latest and tiniest helper device is small enough to put in every room, whether you want to control Spotify in the kitchen or find out the weather in your bedroom.

UE Boom 2 – $80 ($120 off)

Buy on Amazon, Best Buy

Yes, we love the Blast and Megablast, but the Boom 2 is still one of our favorite speakers and this is a positively unbelievable price.

UE Megaboom – $150 ($150 off)

Buy on Amazon

Okay, it may seem nonsensical to buy this version of UE’s insanely popular, portable, shockproof, and waterproof Bluetooth speakers when their new Wi-Fi-enabled and Alexa-compatible line debuted barely a month ago. But this is still one of our favorite picks and retains the “Double Up” feature that allows you to sync up with multiple speakers, which the new Blast line currently does not. So there.

Sonos Speakers – ($25 – $100 off)

Date: Nov. 23-27

Buy Sonos One for $175 ($25 off) on Sonos, Amazon

Buy Sonos Play:1 for $150 ($50 off) on Sonos, Amazon

Buy Sonos Playbar for $600 ($100 off) on Sonos, Amazon

Buy Sonos Playbase for $600 ($100 off) on Sonos, Amazon

Sonos is discounting quite a few of its speakers over Thanksgiving weekend. We highly recommend the Sonos One because it has Alexa support, as well as the Play:5, Sonos Playbar, and Sub. If you really don’t care about Alexa, the Play:1 is also available and the Playbase, which is great if you want your soundbar to sit below your TV (though the Playbar sounds nicer).

Logitech 5.1 Surround Sound Speaker System – $200 ($200 off)

Buy for $200 on Logitech.com, $270 on Amazon

Getting a decent five-speaker surround sound system for $200 is very tough. If you’re on a budget, but still want surround, we recommend this deal.

Harman Kardon Invoke – $100 ($100 off)

Buy on Amazon, Best Buy, Harman Kardon, Microsoft

Microsoft enters the smarthome speaker and virtual assistant game with the Invoke. It has better sound quality than most other smarthome speakers and plays well with your familiar friend from Windows, Cortana.

Amazon Echo Show – $180 ($50 off)

Buy on Best Buy, Amazon

The Echo Show is basically another Alexa speaker, but with a 7-inch screen on it.

Logitech Speakers and Subwoofer – $50 ($50 off)

Buy on Amazon

These decent flexible speakers can work for gaming systems, PCs, or whatever you need. At $50, they are half off their normal price.

Other Audio Goodies

Blue Yeti USB Microphone – $89 ($42 off)

Buy on Amazon

We’ve seen better deals on this microphone elsewhere, but it’s sold out. This is the second-best price on a very nice microphone.

Audio Technica Turntable with USB – $229 ($70 off)

Buy on B&H Photo, Amazon

If you wanted to get into vinyl, make 2018 your year to jam out! This high-quality Audio Technica is aimed at DJs and home Hi-Fi users alike.

Audio Technica Turntable with Bluetooth – $149 ($30 off)

Buy on Jet

This affordable turntable lets you stream your vinyl directly to wireless headphones or speakers, which kind of defeats the purpose of listening to vinyl, but this is a nice discount anyway.

Deal Graveyard

Apple Airpods – $144 ($15 off)

Buy on Walmart

So $15 isn’t that great a discount, and Airpods still sound terrible. But this is the first price drop we’ve seen, so we have to include it.

RHA MA600i Noise Isolating Earbuds With Remote and Microphone – $40 ($50 off)

Buy on Amazon

These silicone-tipped in-ear headphones might not be wireless, but they’re designed to isolate noise and provide clear sound.
