Amazon Prime Day has officially come to a close, and some of the best deals we spotted during the sale event were on headphones. Some absolutely stellar sets were available for the lowest prices we’ve seen to date, including our favourite Sony WH-1000XM4 and some premium Bose flagships.
While the Sony offer is no longer available, with the black set now back to AU$346 – which is still cheaper than its RRP by the way – the excellent offers on the two Bose flagships are still available at their Prime Day prices.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 |
AU$599 AU$330 (save AU$269)
These brilliant Bose headphones are discounted to almost half price at the moment, making them the cheapest price they’ve ever been from Amazon. They’ve got class-leading noise cancellation, solid call quality, and well-balanced, clear audio, all squeezed inside a rather elegant design. Black and silver are cheapest at AU$330, while the white is currently out of stock.
Bose QuietComfort Earbuds |
AU$399 AU$299 (save AU$100)
Want excellent noise cancellation in a set of true wireless earbuds? We think Bose has the winning formula, as these ‘buds can practically shut the world out. Music sounds rich and clear, though a little less bassy than you’ll get from Sony’s WF-1000XM3 (if that’s your thing). These earbuds are fairly new, and it’s the cheapest they’ve ever been on Amazon at AU$299. Discount is available in black.
Not too fussed about the latest and greatest from Bose? There are a few other really good headphones still discounted at the Prime Day prices. You’re not required to be an Amazon Prime member to grab these deals, but you’ll get free shipping if you are. If you’re keen on saving on delivery, then you can sign up now for a 30-day free trial and cancel any time you wish.
Jabra Elite 45h |
AU$179 from AU$103.29 (save AU$75.71)
At under AU$100, the Jabra Elite 45h headphones are better built and better sounding than they have any right to be. They come with energetic, surprisingly balanced sound and an insane 50-hour battery life as we found in our review. We did find that sound can leak in and out of these on-ear headphones fairly easily though, but for just AU$82 they could be yours. Available in black for AU$103, while the cream is a few dollar more from Amazon US.

Sennheiser CX 400BT |
AU$299 AU$145.90 (save AU$153.10)
Sennheiser’s CX 400BT true wireless earbuds offer lively and detailed sound, and our review found them to be more comfortable to wear than they look at first glance. Sure, they’re not the most aesthetically pleasing ‘buds, and we’d prefer if they had more than 20 hours of battery life, but that can be forgiven, particularly at this price. Now just AU$145.90 a pop, the lowest we’ve seen from Amazon.
Panasonic RZ-S500W |
AU$249 from AU$129 (save up to AU$120)
We often spot Panasonic’s true wireless RZ-S500Ws on sale, but this is easily the cheapest we can remember seeing them, with almost 50% off these well-reviewed ‘buds. They come sporting great noise cancellation, good touch controls and detailed sound, though not quite on the same level as their rivals. Still, at just AU$129 for the black pair, it feels silly to complain.
