We're now into October and that means the big Cyber Monday music deals are on the horizon - bringing with it a host of deals right across the sonic spectrum. This year's massive sales event will take place on Monday, November 29 - a few days after Black Friday kick starts the annual bargain bonanza.

And while the big Cyber Monday music deals are some way off, that hasn't stopped a few retailers cutting the price on some musical must-haves before the sales extravaganza gets under way.

Amazon have turned the savings on the superb Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless High-End Stereo Headphones up to 11 by reducing them from £699 to £485, while in the US, the shopping giant has cut them from $699 to £579 – a saving of $120.

In the run up to the Cyber Monday music deals and the day itself, we'll be updating this page with our pick of our favourite items.

Cyber Monday music deals: When is Cyber Monday

Cyber Monday always takes place on the Monday following the Black Friday weekend – and that means this year's Cyber Monday music deals will take place on November 29.

Cyber Monday was added to the sales calendar specifically to offer bargains on tech rather than Black Friday's anything goes approach – and it's become huge, with eager shoppers keeping their eyes peeled to deals on everything from Bluetooth speakers and sleek-looking record players, to over-ear headphones and more.

Here at Louder, we'll be on-hand throughout Cyber Monday keeping you up to date with some of our favourite items on sale.

Cyber Monday music deals: What to expect

With Cyber Monday 2021 arriving on November 29, music fans all over the world will be able to find some amazing bargains – on items such as turntables, speakers, headphones, phone deals, TVs and much more.

Going by past years, we expect companies such as Marshall, Bose, Sony, JBL and more getting in on the action, while sites including Amazon, Best Buy, Walmart, EMP, Currys PC World, Very.co.uk and others will be unveiling bargains galore.

For music fans who are also gamers, we expect to see some discounts on last gen consoles such as the Xbox One and PS4/Pro - and perhaps even the Nintendo Switch due to the fact that the new OLED display model has arrived.

How to spot the best Cyber Monday music deals

As you would expect, prices are going to vary across the board so in our experience, it pays to first of all, find out the list price of an item. Doing so will give you all the info you need about exactly how much a retailer is discounting before you take the plunge.

While a price drop might seem like the best offer on the table, some online firms throw in an extra or two to sweeten the deal. For example, some smart speakers could be available with a couple of free smart bulbs, while TV purchases could come with a streaming subscription thrown into the bargain.

We'd also recommend creating a list of products you're looking for and some back-up options just in case the Cyber Monday music deal you're looking for fails to materialise.

Of course, keeping Louder bookmarked will help, as we'll be steering you in the direction of some top deals as and when we find them.

Cyber Monday music deals: Where to find them

There are going to be so many Cyber Monday music deals across the internet on November 29, but along with the sites we mentioned above and keeping you're eyes on Louder, expect John Lewis, Townsend Music, Etsy, Firebox, Converse, Vans and Argos to keep the sales going. 

While it might be tech driven, Cyber Monday always throws up some unexpected surprises. Even if you miss a Black Friday deal, you should find something that appeals on Cyber Monday.
