How long will Amazon Prime Day headphone deals last?

Amazon Prime Day headphones deals are expected to last until midnight on Tuesday June 22, when Prime Day officially ends. Some deals will hang around after this – and that deals on very popular headphones will sell out long before, so if you see a great discount, we'd recommend snapping it up. We're already seeing "Out of Stock" notices on many pairs in Amazon sales, though some models are reappeared as day two continued on.

Do you need Amazon Prime to buy Prime Day headphone deals?

An Amazon Prime membership is required to take advantage of this year's Prime Day headphone deals. However, if you're not a member, you'll usually find that Amazon offers free trials around Prime Day as well. That will give you access to all these offers – and don't worry, you can cancel the trial at any time within the 30 days.

We also saw plenty of other retailers offering competing Prime Day headphone deals last year. In the US, Best Buy and Walmart were price matching some of the record low prices we saw on big ticket items, and in the UK Currys was honoring price matches from Amazon as well.
