Amazon Prime Day and competing sales typically have tons of Black Friday-like headphone deals. We expect Prime Day 2022 headphone deals to be exceptionally generous. 

Bargain shoppers can expect 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'd like to see will offer a sizable discount on the Beats Fit Pro. 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?

According to Amazon's April quarterly report, Prime Day 2022 is expected to occur in July. The specifics of the actual start date of the next Prime Day event remains unknown. 

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. Although Prime Day 2022's date remains a mystery at this time, it will arrive before we know it. 

We'll be tracking the best Prime Day 2022 deals of the summer during the weeks leading up to Amazon's big sale. Until then, here are the best Prime Day-worthy headphone deals you can get right now.
