Nothing Ear (1)
The Nothing Ear (1) launched in 2021 with a great wave of hype, and if you missed out at the first time of asking, this Prime Day event sees them drop to the lowest price we’ve seen them hit on Amazon.
When we reviewed the, we found the Nothing true wireless to be a good pair of true wireless, delivering a strong audio performance, good noise cancellation and good comfort all on a relatively modest budget. At this low price, if you were on the fence about snapping a pair up, this Prime Day deal may convince you to cash in.
Jabra Elite 7 Pro
Jabra’s Elite 7 Pro aren’t the Danish audio brand’s top true wireless (that’d be the Elite 85t), but if you’re after a pair with good call quality, solid noise cancellation and comfortable fit, these Jabra headphones hit the mark.
The strength of their noise cancellation is down to their terrific fit that comfortable blocks most noises that come its way. Battery is good at 8 hours and 30 overall, with support for smarts in Alexa and Google Assistant. They’re not the most characterful in terms of their sound, favouring clarity and detail rather than any jazzy. Call quality is one of the best we’ve tested in a true wireless. At £60 off they’re back to where they were earlier in the year, and are worth snapping up, especially if do a lot of calls.
1More Pistonbuds Pro
If you’re on a budget and want a pair of noise cancelling true wireless on the cheap, then the 1More Pistonbuds are one to consider during the Prime Day sales.
We’ve reviewed, giving them a recommended four-star rating praising their comfort, neutral sound, long battery life and low latency when it comes to gaming. The touch controls could be better, but considering the price they’re currently on sale at, you may feel this is an acceptable compromise. At just £42, it’s not often you get a pair of noise cancelling earbuds this cheap.
Cambridge Melomania 1+
We’ve not yet reviewed the Melomania 1+ (look out for that in the near future), but we were massively impressed by the original and this sequel looks to build on from those strong foundations.
Tiny in size and with a unique design, the Melomania 1+ use 5.8mm graphene drivers to produce a sound that Cambridge says is detailed and facilitates authentic musical reproduction. Battery is one of the longest at its price at up to 45 hours battery life in total and 9 hours per charge, and EQ presets that help customise the sound how you like. They’re down to their lowest price yet, a saving of 58% on the RRP.
Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro
The Galaxy Buds Pro are Samsung’s current flagship true wireless earbuds and thanks to Amazon’s latest Prime Day deal, they’re an absolute steal. Amazon’s slashed 55% off the Galaxy Buds Pro’s RRP letting you pick them up for just £99. Based on our testing you’ll struggle to find a better true wireless set this price.
The buds earned a recommended badge when we reviewed them with editor-in-chief Alastair Stevenson listing them as “Samsung’s most accomplished buds to date”. Highlights include reliable battery life, a compact case, reliable fit and detailed audio, making them a great option for most music listeners.
Until recently the WH-1000XM4 were our favourite noise cancelling wireless headphones, but they’ve been dethroned by Sony’s very own WH-1000XM5. They remain a fantastic option for any music lover with the excellent rich audio that works across a range of music genres. More than that, they’re one of the best noise cancellers available, reducing plenty of noise so your music sessions aren’t distracted and they boast plenty of smarts, too.
They fit the bill in a number of ways and you can save 40% on these headphones, bringing them down close to the magic mark of £200. An offer not to be refused.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
The WH-1000XM4 aren’t the only premium pair of wireless ANC cans available in the Prime Day sale. Bose’s stylish Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are also part of the two-day event, and if you like your headphones comfortable to wear and stylish in looks, then have a look at Bose’s headphones.
If you like your music neutral and uncoloured, then the NCH 700 are a solid bet. They’re one of the lightest ANC models in the market in terms of weight and super-comfortable to wear, their noise cancelling is very effective and they boast more smarts (such as voice assistant integration) than the newer QuietComfort 45 pair. We liked these very much when they first came out, and at 50% off, this is the cheapest we’ve ever seen the Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 retail for.
Bowers & Wilkins Pi7
The Pi7 were Bowers & Wilkins first entrant into the true wireless market and though they’ve been bettered by the likes of the WF-1000XM4, these wireless earphones produce a smooth, refined and detailed sound that’s up there with the best. They boast high quality specs, so Tidal and Qobuz subscribers are the main audience for these earphones.
Their noise cancelling is good and they look gorgeous, and while they have some issues (such as comfort and low battery life) they’re worth a look this Prime Day not just for the £155 off you get on the RRP, but also for their inventive charging case. It doubles up as an audio receiver, taking in audio from a wired source and retransmitting it to the earphones, great for use on airplanes.
Earfun Free Pro
Of course, not everyone can afford the headphones above even at their discounted prices. Earfun have specialised in offering cheaper true wireless headphones and the Free Pro boast noise cancellation and long battery life.
They strike a good tonal balance, with a distinct stereo image and good amounts of dynamism to make music an exciting listen. For the price, the noise cancellation is better than expected but the ambient mode is a weak point. For gamers there’s a low latency mode and their IPX5 waterproofing makes them a solid option for gym use. A good all-rounder at an even more affordable price with this discount.
A golden oldie as it were, the E11C have been around for years and there’s a reason why they’ve lasted so long: they’re very, very good.
Unlike the other options on this list, they’re a wired pair but with the increase in WFH use and people needing a stable connection to conduct their meetings, you’ll get a none more stable connection than a wired headphone. Their sound quality is improved over the previous model, with an easy-going sound and impactful bass, plenty of dynamism coupled with a pleasant and detailed sounding midrange performance. A brilliant pair of budget earphones available for even less.
