Our experts have tested a huge range of the best wireless earbuds out there and are well-placed to help you find a bargain.

However, it’s important to consider a few factors before you begin your bargain hunt. Firstly, what features do you want? For example, is noise cancellation important to you? This can help you focus on audio playback in crowded, noisy environments or make phone calls possible on a busy commute – but quickly increases the cost.

Second, how much are you willing to pay for your earbuds, and which devices will they be used with?Take a look at our best budget wireless earbuds piece for a full rundown of the best contenders in the market. If you’re looking for an affordable pair, then you can pick up our winning best budget wireless earbuds, the Skullcandy Dime earbuds, for as little as £23.99 (RRP £29.99) on Amazon at time of writing. Establishing a budget is always helpful when on the hunt for a new device, and noting which devices you use it with narrows the search. For example, while AirPods can be used with a wide variety of devices, they work best when used in conjunction with other Apple tech – iPhones, iPads and Macs.

For more on Apple specifically, we are tracking the top Black Friday AirPods deals.

  • Check prices on Amazon. It’s good to shop around and take a look at all the retailers you can, but starting with Amazon is a good starting point.
  • Don’t rely on one retailer. While Amazon is often a great place to begin, make sure you check competing retailers like AO, Currys, and John Lewis before committing to a big purchase. Black Friday is hugely competitive for retailers, and they will all try to win your custom with seasonal price slashing.
  • Use price tracking tools. Tools like CamelCamelCamel to track Amazon pricing and ensure that you’re actually getting a good deal.
  • Check social media. During big sale events, some deals may be teased on social media ahead of their appearance on online stores. Keep an eye out.
  • Compare online and in-store prices. If you’re shopping in-store, it can be good to check online prices with the same retailer. The fast-moving nature of big sales means in-store and online prices occasionally move out of sync, so it’s a good way to make sure you’re getting the best deal from the retailer.
  • Sign up for newsletters. These can be great signposts for the biggest Black Friday savings. Yes, that includes our newsletter, so sign up below:
