Happy Halloween! Despite festivities looking a little different than past years, the upside is you can still buy a bunch of candy on sale tomorrow (my favorite part of any candy-related holiday). Plus, there’s a blue moon tonight—it’s not really blue, but it’s the term used for the second full moon in one month. How perfect for the witching hour.
Candy is important, but there are also a ton of discounts on our favorite headphones right now. If you’re in the market for a new pair, now is the time to snag one. We’ve sorted them into a few categories, in case you’re looking for a wireless model or earbuds in particular.
Wireless Over-Ear Headphone Deals
Several of our top wireless picks are on sale, but check our Best Wireless Headphones guide to learn about other options.
Sony WH-1000XM4 for $278 ($72 off) : Our favorite wireless headphones at the lowest price we’ve seen them at. These cans are relatively new, and they only dropped to $300 on Prime Day. They’re our current top pick thanks to their impressive sound quality, noise-canceling tech, and 30-hour battery life. Call quality is a step up over the previous model too.
Sennheiser Momentum 3 Wireless for $350 ($50 off): WIRED’s Parker Hall says these headphones are reminiscent of studio headphones from the rock and roll era , and they sit comfortably on your head for hours due to the plush leather earpads. The sound quality is superb, though noise reduction isn’t as strong as on the Sony above. You can get this deal from Best Buy as well.
Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT for $179 ($20 off): We’ve seen this price fairly consistently on the black model since March. Still, these are great if you’re producing music, as they’re known for durability and balanced sound. In his review, WIRED senior editor Michael Calore says the ATH-M50xBT are comfortable to wear all day. This is the Bluetooth version, but you still get a coiled studio cable if you like to switch between wireless and wired. The black model is also $179 on Audio-Technica’s website.
