The annual battleground of retail that is the end of November gets more dangerous every year, giving us more and better reasons to shop online. While Black Friday and the much sillier sounding Cyber Monday are the main events, the entire month has gradually become the best time to buy most anything. You have two options: lament the sorry state of the modern consumer lifestyle, or take advantage of the sales and buy some stuff.

Amazon is hoping you’ll pick the latter route and has been putting things on sale since the first week in November. If you’re looking for a new pair of headphones, they have a few pairs on sale at pretty hefty discounts.

Beats Studio Over-Ear Headphones


While many (including us) often deride Beats for valuing style over sound quality, they’re a lot better than they used to be and they’re still some of the most stylish headphones around. The Beats Studio feature Adaptive Noise Canceling and come with a cleaning cloth and hardshell carrying case. They’re also available in a crazy variety of colors.

The Beats Studio headphones are selling for $50 off at $249.99 (unless you want them in orange, which will cost you $269). If you’re interested, act quick. This deal is only running until November 15.

Beats Tour 2.0 In-Ear Headphones


We haven’t tested these, but the Beats Tour 2.0 in-ears are widely regarded as a solid update and much better than the 1.0 version. They aren’t available in as many colors as the Studios, but they are available in Black, Red, Titanium and White.

The Beats Tour earbuds are selling for 20% off the list price at $119.96. Like the Studio over-ears, this deal is only running until November 15.

Sony MDRV6 Studio Monitor Headphones with CCAW Voice Coil


If you take your sound a little more seriously, the MDRV6 don’t offer the same style-forward design as the Beats headphones, but arguably offer better sound at a lower price. With neodymium magnets and 40mm drivers, these aren’t the best studio cans out there, but they’ll more than get the job done.

The Sony MDRV6 are currently on sale for $79.99, which is $30 off the list price of $109.99. This deal ends November 27.
