Best Headphones Deals for December 2019 – Affordable true wireless earbuds and more

Best Headphones Deals: A new set of headphones can make a surprising number of things better, from your morning commute to your gaming time. All you need to do is ensure you get the best headphones deal for you.

Now might sound like a bad time to go shopping for a new set of headphones, with Black Friday and Cyber Monday now firmly in the rearview mirror. But when you need a new set of cans, you need a new set of cans. And besides, it’s not like retailers have stopped offering deals. Not with all those last minute Christmas shoppers to entice.

This is also an incredibly mature and competitive market. Manufacturers simply can’t afford to be uncompetitive, and that applies to price as well as things like sound quality and comfort. A lot of very important companies want your money, which can only mean good things for securing a deal.

That’s where the TrustedReviews team comes in. We constantly sift through the online offerings of the UK’s biggest retailers for the best deals on headphones. You’d think we’d take the rest of the week off after our Black Friday and Cyber Monday exploits, but here we are.

Choosing a headphone deal

It goes without saying the best headphone deal is at a great value price you can afford, but you can’t determine which one that is without first deciding what you want from your headphones. With such a huge variety meeting different needs, zero in on exactly what you want and need from your pair and go from there. But what elements are there to consider?

First things first, where and what will you be using them for? If you’re keen on fitness and enjoy listening to music or a podcast whilst you workout, you want something that is comfortable and secure. Going truly wireless is likely the way to go, avoiding tugging on a wire when you’re mid-run. A cheaper alternative might be semi-wireless equivalents, connecting via Bluetooth to your phone with a wire simply linking the buds behind your neck.

If you like to listen to music or binge-watch on Netflix during your commute, noise cancelling technologies are a must for receiving quality sound from your headphones and blocking out the noisy hub-bub of the morning. Not looking to splash out on a pair of all-encompassing headphones? In-ear earphones might be a better shout for better noise isolation.

After all that you’ll want to think about price. As a rule of thumb headphones are an area where you get what you pay for, so if you care about audio quality it’s always worth investing a little bit more. The difference between some £70 and £100 sets is palpable.
