Welcome to Cyclingnews’ roundup of the best headphone deals available today, including a huge amount of deals from the Amazon Prime Early Access sale. Now, before we get started, it’s worth noting that we understand cycling and headphones aren’t always considered the closest of bedmates. There’s an element of contention associated with what effectively removes – or at least reduces – one of a rider’s senses and, in turn, reduces their awareness of their surroundings.
We’d never advocate riding with a blindfold and, as such, the same argument applies to the total audio immersion that some headphones offer. However, as demonstrated in our guide to the best headphones for cycling, many headphones and earbuds are designed not to completely remove their user from the outside world, so with these, a ride away from traffic – such as on a gravel bike or mountain bike – might present a suitable scenario to add a little music, an audiobook or a podcast to your ride.
Furthermore, if like much of the cycling population, you’ve taken to riding indoors over the past few years, you might want nothing more than to block out the world with high-volume rock music as you complete your next interval session on Zwift.
With that in mind, there are plenty of reasons that we two-wheeled aficionados would need to buy headphones, and like everything else for our bikes, we never want to spend more than necessary. That’s where the best headphones deals come into play, allowing us to get more for our money.
So if you’re looking for wireless earbuds to add a bit of music into your workouts, or you simply need some noise-cancelling headphones so that your work colleagues don’t have to hear your dog barking in the background of your Zoom call (speaking from experience here), the following list of headphone deals has everything you need.
