Prime Day headphone deals will start on July 12 at 3 a.m. ET and runs through July 13. Much like last year, Amazon Prime Day 2022 and competing sales will offer tons of Black Friday-like headphone deals this summer. We expect Prime Day 2022 headphone deals to be exceptionally generous. Bargain shoppers — get ready to snag solid discounts on everything from wireless earbuds to ear cans. 

Best Buy and Walmart are known to offer their own sitewide sales to take some shine off of Amazon Prime Day. Whether you want to expand your gadget collection or get an early start on your back-to-school shopping, Prime Day is one of the best times to save.

Prime Day 2022 headphone deals to expect

Retailers are expected to roll out discounts on earbuds, on-ear, and over-ear headphones from several brands. Last year's Prime Day headphone deals slashed dollars off audio gear from brands like Apple, Beats, Bose, Jabra, Sennheiser, Sony, and more. During Prime Day 2022, we expect more of the same.

One Prime Day deal we could see return will slash dollars off the Beats Fit Pro (opens in new tab). These wireless earbuds are rarely on sale and are long overdue for a price drop. The buds feature Apple's H1 chip, active-noise cancellation, Spatial Audio and built-in microphones.

With a rated battery life of 6 hours and up 24 hours with the included charging case, the Beats Fit Pro are great everyday earbuds. They work with Apple and Android devices and support Siri, Bixby, and Google Assistant.

When is Amazon Prime Day 2022?

Amazon's 48-hour Prime Day 2022 savings event starts July 12 at 3 a.m. ET and runs through July 13. Prime Day typically occurs during the second or third week of July to coincide with Amazon's July 5 founding date. However, there have been a few exceptions to the rule. 

In 2020, Prime Day was pushed back to October 13-14 due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The following year, Prime Day 2021 took place on June 21 and June 22 to kick off the summer.

We're tracking the best Prime Day 2022 deals at Amazon and its competitors this summer. Until then, here are the best pre-Prime Day headphone deals you can get right now.
