Early Black Friday headphones deals

For a high-quality pair of earbuds from a top-name brand, look no further than the Studio Buds from Beats, which are both wireless and noise-canceling. These headphones come in five colors and can work for up to eight hours at a time before needing a charge, and right now, they're going for $100. "The magnets on them are strong, the battery life is amazing, and the sound quality is fire," wrote one reviewer

If you aren't in the market for earbuds, though, and want to splurge a bit, the Apple AirPods Max are also marked down. These popular over-ear headphones are spatial audio enabled, feature active noise cancelation that blocks outside noise, and have transparency mode that allows you to hear everything around you; essentially, you can choose which listening experience you want at any given moment. They're designed with a knit-mesh canopy and memory foam ear cushions and offer up to 20 hours of listening. 

The now-$469 headphones have racked up more than 8,300 perfect ratings from Amazon shoppers, with one five-star reviewer sharing that the audio is "crisp and clear" with "incredible" noise cancellation, adding that the over-ear AirPods are the "most comfortable headphones" they've ever worn.

Early Black Friday video games and accessories deals

Amazon is stocked with early deals on video games and accessories that will have avid gamers leveling up.

If you're looking for a game to gift, there's the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Nintendo Switch, which has more than 58,000 five-star total ratings from shoppers on sale for $50. You can bring the game of Monopoly to life with the combo of Monopoly Plus + Monopoly Madness for Xbox One that's just $16, a whopping 68 percent off, and snap up Grand Theft Auto V for PlayStation 5 for under $30. And according to a shopper, the game "has been upgraded significantly from the PS4 version" thanks to its "faster loading times, better graphics, [and] improved gameplay."

And if you want to add on a pair of gaming headphones, there's an over-ear option from JBL that delivers immersive gaming audio, according to the brand. The headphones feature a detachable boom microphone with echo-canceling technology, which allows users to focus on their gaming teammates' voices.

Shopping for the perfect mic? You won't want to miss this USB microphone from Logitech going for 20 percent right now. It's a great tool for streaming, podcasting, watching videos, and more, thanks to its enhanced sound quality and multiple pickup settings. "I have been using the Yeti for streaming for quite some time now and it is the best investment I have made," wrote a five-star reviewer. They added, "the sound quality is so clear."

Early Black Friday Bluetooth speakers deals

When in doubt, a portable Bluetooth speaker is always an appreciated gift, and there are plenty on sale ahead of Black Friday and Cyber Monday at Amazon right now. There's the JBL Charge 5, a waterproof and dustproof speaker that is available in four colors, including blue and black, and can play for up to 20 hours on a single charge. The device is also PartyBoost enabled, which means it can sync up with another PartyBoost-compatible speaker so you can get double the sound.

The Bose Soundlink Micro Bluetooth Speaker is small but powerful, as it delivers a clear sound with deep bass and is constructed from durable materials, so it can be easily taken outside. The waterproof speaker has a tear-resistant silicone strap too, so you can secure the device to a backpack, beach cooler, or handlebars with ease. Its battery can last for up to six hours on a single charge and the speaker has an integrated microphone so you can take phone calls directly from it, too. 

It's no wonder one shopper enthused: "This is far and away the best small speaker I've used yet… everything sounds authentic."
