Black Friday Beats headphones deals
Want to get your hands on some Beats headphones? Check out these deals and get a bargain with up to 40% off.
Beats Ep Wired On-Ear Headphones - was £89.95, now £44.99
A half price deal on any headphones is always worth pricking up your ears about, especially when it’s on a pair from the bass-heavy Beats brand. Beats was created by hip-hop legend Dr. Dre and super producer Jimmy Iovine, and its focus on the low end has won it plenty of fans in the world of celebrity and athletics.
These feature adjustable vertical sliders to help you get the perfect fit, and a durable, lightweight design that’s reinforced with stainless steel. Good to know if you’re stashing them in a bag.
In-line controls put you in charge of playback without fishing your phone out of your pocket, and there’s also a mic, for making and taking handsfree calls. And the sound? Let’s just say if you’re listening to beats, you want to be listening with Beats.
Beats Solo3 Wireless On-Ear Headphones - was £179.95, now £125
If you want to cut the cord and go wireless, these are the pair for you – they bring all of the bass, but with true wireless freedom. Up to 40 hours of battery life should be long enough for even the most marathon of listening sessions, and they’re powered by the Apple W1 chip, which is also found in Apple’s AirPods wireless earbuds.
In a hurry? Just a five minute charging burst will give you three hours of playback – essential if you need to dash out of the door. And they fold down for easy stowing in a bag.
urBeats3 Wired Earphones With Lightning Connector - Tangle Free Cable, Magnetic Earbuds, Built In Mic And Controls - was £59.95, now £25.99
It’s not often you see headphones discounted by more than half price, so this is a rare deal indeed. The urBeats3 have a Lightning connector, so only work with Apple iPhones, or Android phones using an adaptor.
They come with a variety of ear tip sizes to help you find the perfect fit, and the cable is flat, making it tangle-free, so no more cable spaghetti when you fish it out of your pocket. The earbuds have magnetic backs too, so they stick together when put away. One of the neatest pairs of headphones around
Black Friday Sennheiser headphones deals
For a range of wireless headphones with active noise cancellation, have a look at these Sennheiser deals which are up to 55% off.
Sennheiser HD 599 Special Edition, Open Back Headphone - was £179.99, now £99
A word of warning: these headphones are open-backed, which means they’re not closed like most headphones you see. That gives them an open, spacious sound that’s closer to experiencing music live in a concert hall than having it piped directly into your ears.
The downside? Because there’s no back to contain the sound, everyone can hear what you’re listening to. So they’re made for home listening sessions, rather than bangers on the bus. Still, there’s no knocking the sound quality, as their slew of awards shows, and with £80 off, home listeners owe it to themselves to jump in.
Sennheiser HD 450BT Wireless Headphones - was £159, now £89
These are closed-back, so you don’t have to worry about everyone in the vicinity knowing about your penchant for Bruno Mars, and they pack active noise cancellation – this clever tech uses a series of microphones to emit white noise that neutralises outside sounds, deadening the outside world to a mere murmur.
The benefits are twofold: not only does it block out unwanted sounds like traffic, plane engines and office chitchat, it also lets you hear the music better without cranking it up and potentially damaging your hearing. And with one-touch access to Apple’s Siri or the Google Assistant voice assistant, you can control them just by speaking.
Sennheiser PXC 550-II Wireless Headphone with Alexa Built-In - was £299, now £177
These too pack active noise cancellation, and it’s adjustable, so you can block out every sound going, or dial it down so that some outside noises do creep in. If you’re out walking, for example, it’s handy to hear oncoming traffic.
They’re wireless, for the ultimate in convenience, and the battery lasts for 30 hours before needing a recharge. One-touch access brings your voice assistant of choice to listen, and they can detect when you take them off and pause the music accordingly. You’ll never miss a note.
Black Friday Soundcore headphones deals
Get up to 40% off on Soundcore headphones, a bargain on high-quality technology
Soundcore Spirit X 2019 Version Wireless Sports Earphones - was £29.99, now £19.99
Runner? These are for you. They’re wireless, so you’re not tethered to your phone, which means your swishing arms won’t catch the cable and yank your mobile out of your pocket – never a good look. And they’re sweat-proof, so they’ll keep going no matter how frantic your workout becomes.
Or how much of a sweaty mess you become. They’re also dust- and water-proof, so you can use them on the beach, in the desert, in a downpour… Let’s be honest, that last one is more likely.
Wireless Headphones, Anker Soundcore Life P2 True Wireless Earbuds Headphones with cVc 8.0 Noise Reduction - was £49.99, now £29.99
A true wireless design gives you the ultimate in listening freedom. There are no cables whatsoever, not even one connecting the two earbuds to each other. Instead, they’re just two earbuds that you pop in your shell-likes.
You get seven hours of listening, and the carry case doubles as a portable charger, giving you more charges on the go. That means a total run time of 40 hours before you need to charge the case itself. Plenty of time.
Soundcore Anker Spirit X2, True Wireless Earbuds - was £79.99, now £55.99
More true wireless fun here, and again, these are sweat-proof for workouts. They also feature hooks that go over the top of your ears to make an extra secure fit – handy if you’re doing particularly vigorous exercise and don’t want to have to keep stopping and picking them up off the floor.
They promise lashings of bass too, which should keep you motivated from the first mile to the last.

Sonically, they thrash the competition, and the wireless playback is flawless. If you want the best true wireless earbuds around, you just found them.
