Welcome to the Best Black Friday and Cyber Monday Headphones Deals
It’s that amazing time of year where headphones that were once way out of your budget come down in price to become attainable. If you’re been salivating over a pair of headphones that were just out of your price range, or have your eyes on a certain pair and are waiting for them to come down in price, then these Black Friday Deals may be just what you’re looking for. Here we will highlight individual headphones sales from places like Amazon, Newegg and Tigerdirect. We’ll also mention Black Friday promotions that certain brands are having, such as Skullcandy and others.
Featured Black Friday Deal: Audio Technica ATH-M50S Headphones
Audio Technica is a small and unassuming Japanese electronics maker that has been quietly making some of the most outstanding headphones. If you’re a beginner seeking a great set of headphones for under $200, headphones experts will invariably end up recommending the M50’s. There’s a reason: it does everything well. It has a crisp, balanced sound with good bass. They are popular among music producers because of their versatility. They’re great for movies, and even gaming (though there’s no mic). For Black Friday they’re over $75 off, so it’s one of the best deal in electronics right now.
Oh, and make sure you get the ATH-M50S. The “S” stands for a straight cord. The main model comes with a coiled cord.
Best Black Friday Headphones Deals from Newegg:
1. Sennheiser HD201 Headphones
Sennheiser doesn’t just make super high end headphones: the HD201 fights above its weight class when it comes to sound quality. The lightweight headphones have soft ear-pads that you can have around your ears for hours without having to take them off. The sound errs towards the bass-heavy. Excellent for DJ’s and producers on a tight budget.
2. Audio-Technica ATH-ANC27 Noise-Cancelling Headphones
Price: $119.99 $79.99
For those who are looking for quality noise-cancelling headphones on a budget, you can’t do better than the ATH-ANC27 Noise Cancelling Headphones. Whereas most noise-cancelling headphones under $150 will give you 65-75% cancellation of external sound, these headphones are tested for over 90%. That puts them on the same playing field as the $300 Bose Quietcomfort 15’s. The best thing is: they’re more comfortable than Bose’s model, they have a sturdier built quality, and they will continue to play music when the noise-cancellation feature is turned off (Bose’s don’t work without noise-cancellation turned on).
Black Friday Deals from Amazon:
1. Denon AH-D310 Headphones
Denon’s AH-D310 Headphones are designed to work well with portable devices, like iPods and iPhones. They have surprisingly large-42mm drivers that really give your music that oomph. The bass is powerful, sometimes too powerful on certain songs (although you can correct that with an equalizer). The over-ear cups are small, almost halfway between on-ear and over-ear. I guess it would depend on what size ears you have! The genres of music it works best with are pop, electronica, dubstep and rap. Overall these headphones are very good value at $50, but an awesome value at $19.99.
2. Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series Headphones
The Sony MDR-V6 Monitor Series has been around for over 20 years and there’s a reason: these headphones are meant to last. A favorite among music producers, these headphones are built to be resistant to head conduction. Which means that they can survive intense recording sessions without degrading over time. If you want a pair of headphones that you only have to buy once every generation, these are for you.
3. Pioneer HDJ-2000-K DJ Headphones
This is one of those premier headphones that are out of most people’s price range but now they are a great deal. Professional DJ’s love these headphones for a few reasons: the magnesium alloy construction makes the headphones incredibly lightweight as well as giving you a much sturdier build than plastic. The protein leather cups are soft and feel great on the ears. These are designed for long mixing sessions. The cord is detachable, which is a nice touch since it gives you the option to switch to aftermarket cables. They also work as audiophile headphones as the sound quality is nicely balanced.

Tiger Direct Black Friday Deals
1. Beats by Dre Studio Headphones
Rated #3 in our Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones list, Monster doesn’t even advertise them as noise-cancelling headphones. And yet they are: they have microphones that cancel out external noise, the ear cups require batteries. And what’s unusual is how good these headphones sound. Usually Monster’s headphones are way too bass heavy and the music suffers. The Studio Beats, while no slouches when it comes to bass, are actually quite balanced and full of energy. Listening to rock or electronica is a treat with these headphones. You’ll likely want to listen to your up tempo music collection all over again with these headphones.
