Black Friday 2015 Headphone Sales: Beats, Sony Bass Have Big Discounts, But HiFiMAN Slashed Prices By $200

When it comes to headphones, few things sound much better than a Black Friday deal. But a number of retailers have already announced a number of deals on top of line line headphones, including Beats by Dre, meaning audiophiles can plan their Black Friday spending before leaving Thanksgiving dinner early.

The deals have only begun, and more are expected to be leaked as Black Friday 2015 approaches. Until then, here's a guide on the best place to find headphones on the cheap.

The biggest best deal announced so far is the storewide price discounts on HiFiMAN headphones. HiFiMAN headphones are among the most well-regarded on the market, but they're also the priciest, which means this year's turkey will taste so much better now that rates have been slashed across the board. HiFiMAN's HE560 headphones will be on sale for $699, HE400i for $299, RE400 for $59 and RE600 for $149, among others.

“This is the star of the Black Friday show,” wrote one Reddit user in the community news site's headphones forum, one of the most reliable places for headphones advice. Others complained the HIFIMAN discount, with prices knocked off as much s $200, was almost unfair to other sellers.

The Microsoft Store may have made another splash by announcing that Beats Studio Over-Ear Headphones, normally priced at $299.95, will be on sale for $169.00, starting on 12:00 a.m. EST on Thursday, November 26th. That's a $130.00 discount for headphones that come in six colors, a 20-hour rechargeable battery and 3.8 out of five stars on Amazon.

Speaking of Amazon, the e-commerce site announced this week that Sennheiser HD 598 Special Edition Over-Ear Headphones will be 50 percent off the normal $199.95. The deal only applies to black headphones, but the deal will be attractive for Sennheiser fans, who praise the brand's sound quality but complain about steep prices.

Amazon is also offering 50 percent off Sony's renowned Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones, which normally go for $198.00 (retail value is closer to $150.00). Like Beats, Sony's Extra Bass Bluetooth Headphones have 20 hours of battery life but with better reviews and, by most accounts, more comfort.
