TL;DR: Best Buy is having a big sale on wireless earbuds, as of Aug. 11.
In the Before Times, wireless earbuds were often billed as a must-have accessory for commuting and working out. But we’re here to tell you there’s no reason that convenience can’t be carried over to your new socially-distant, stay-at-home lifestyle: Whether you’re working/learning remotely, playing video games, cleaning, gardening, whatever, it’s always nice to *not* have to worry about getting tangled up in cords.
Conveniently, Best Buy has tons of wireless earbuds on sale for up to 40% off (including the Samsung Galaxy Buds+, the Beats Powerbeats Pros, and the Sony WF-1000XM3s, three solid AirPods Pro alternatives). Click here to shop all of the deals, or keep scrolling to check out the select few that caught our eyes in order from lowest to highest discount.
Samsung Galaxy Buds+ — save $20
These predecessors to the all-new Samsung Galaxy Buds (Beans) Live boast premium AKG sound, Bixby voice control, Wireless PowerShare for easy charging, noise-isolation capabilities, and a battery life of up to 22 hours with the help of their included charging case.
The Galaxy Buds+ usually retail for $149.99, but Best Buy has their black, aura blue (pictured below), light blue, red, and white variants all marked down to a mere $129.99 — that’s the cheapest they’ve ever been since their February debut. (Note: We found this same pricing on Amazon, but it’s only applied to the black variant.)
Worried about your earbuds falling out while you’re up and about? That won’t happen with the long-lasting, fantastic-sounding Powerbeats Pros, which stay secure thanks to a hooked design and a snug (yet hella comfortable) fit.
Available in black (pictured below), navy, glacier blue, moss, spring yellow, cloud pink, lava red, and ivory, you can score a pair at Best Buy for only $199.99 — a savings of 20%. (Fun fact: These bad boys are also enjoying their biggest-ever discount.)
Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Headphones — save $51.99
These puppies were “easily” the best true wireless earbuds released in 2019, argued Mashable tech reporter Ray Wong, who praised their decent noise-cancellation capabilities, amazing sound, and extended battery life in a glowing review. If you’re not a fan of the Q-tippy look of Apple’s AirPods Pros but want the same premium quality in your pair of buds, get these.
They normally sell for $229.99, but you can grab a pair on sale for just $178 in your choice of either black or silver (pictured below) — a 23% savings.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless Earbuds — save $100
Featuring intuitive touch controls, excellent sound with noise cancellation, and durable build quality, these stellar buds are everything you’d expect from a top-notch brand like Sennheiser. (Note that at up to 12 hours of use with their charging case, they don’t last quite as long as most of the other earbuds on this list.)
Snag these on sale while you can: They’re down to just $199.98 at Best Buy, which is 33% off their suggested retail price of $299.98.
Skullcandy Sesh True Wireless Headphones — save $20
Not looking for anything fancy? Skullcandy’s Sesh true wireless earbuds offer Bluetooth 5.0 technology and up to 10 hours of listening time at a super affordable price point.
Lucky for you, they’re even cheaper than usual at Best Buy: Get a pair in black (pictured below) or indigo for just $29.99 — that’s 40% off their usual retail price of $49.99.
