Best Headphones Deals for January 2020 – Affordable true wireless earbuds and more

Best Headphones Deals: Looking for a bargain deal on a new set of headphones? Read on.

It’s cold and dark outside. If you find yourself having to step outside of a morning – as most of us do – then its best to do so in a warm audio bubble.

Nothing distracts you from the oppressive inanities of everyday life like a good set of tunes (or a podcast, or an audiobook) pumped straight into your ears. Needless to say, a good solid set of headphones is essential to this equation.

And we’re not talking about the earbuds that shipped with your smartphone. They’re fine for the absolute basic business of conveying audio to your ears, but they’re really not very good.

Indeed, you only need to spend a relatively small amount of money on new headphones to improve your situation. And that’s precisely what we’re here to help you do.

How much you’re willing to spend on those new headphones will determine what kind of sound and features you’ll be able to expect. There are other factors to take into consideration though, like form factor and purpose. We’ll run through the kind of things to keep an eye out for towards the end of this feature.

For now, let’s run through some of the latest headphones deals from the UK’s best online suppliers.

All prices were correct at the time of publication, but do tend to change quickly. Act fast if you want to snap up a bargain.

Best Headphone Deals – Amazon

There’s no escaping the gravitational pull of the biggest online retailer in the world – even in the rarified air of the headphones market. While its stocks and prices can fluctuate a fair bit, Amazon is the source of a huge number of bargain headphones deals. Our team keeps an extra vigilant eye on its offerings.


Best Headphones Deals – Argos

Argos covers most of the bases when it comes to headphones, so you’ll generally be able to shop for all the biggest headphones lines with them. But if the UK retailer has a specialty, it’s in stocking a number of cheaper headphones that you might not always find with other high street sellers. It’s a great place to shop if ‘cheap and cheerful’ is your headphones mantra.

Choosing a headphone deal

As we alluded to in the intro, there are a number of reasons to buy a new set of headphones. And those reasons will determine what they look like and, to a certain extent, how much they cost.

Are you after a set for serious home listening? You might want to look at some of the costlier over-ear varieties, and you should probably consider the wired models first.

Do you want some motivational tunes whilst out running? Then take a look at some wireless earphones – and best make them weather and sweat-proof.

Want to escape into an audio bubble on your daily commute? We’d suggest looking into closed-back on or over-ear headphones, ideally wireless and with some kind of active noise cancellation onboard.

Finally, it’s time to consider your budget. This will limit which of these features you can get, but it will also set some firm boundaries for you to operate within. Often, however, spending just a little more money can carry you to a whole new level of audio quality. This is where research – and in particular TrustedReviews – matters.
