When is Prime Day?

Amazon Prime Day 2021 dates confirmed

(Image credit: Amazon)

Prime Day usually takes place in July. 2020 was an exception to this rule due to Covid, with the event running much later in the year on 13 and 14 October. Amazon has now officially confirmed that Prime Day 2021 will be happening on 21 and 22 June this year.

Prime Day starts a 00.01am BST on Monday and ends at 11.59pm BST on Tuesday 22nd June. If you're in the US, Prime Day kicks off at 00.01am PT on Monday and ends 11.59pm PT on Tuesday 22nd June.

Do I need a Prime subscription?

If you want to pick up a Prime Day headphones bargain straight from Amazon, then yes. If you don't want to pay the subscription fee, one workaround is to sign up for a free trial closer to the time, grab your gear, then cancel once you’ve filled your boots. 

A monthly Amazon Prime subscription currently costs £7.99/$12.99 (which can be cancelled at any time), while a yearly option is better value at £79/$119.

Keep your eyes on non-Amazon retailers too as not all the action will happen on Amazon, with plenty of other big stores taking advantage of the buzz created by Amazon around Prime Day.

Where to find the best Prime Day headphones deals

Deals will be everywhere around Prime Day 2021, and navigating through the noise can be stressful. We’d recommend heading straight for Amazon, Argos, Currys and John Lewis in the UK, and Amazon, Walmart and Best Buy in the US. Traditionally they have been the first choice for picking up the best Prime Day headphones bargains.

If you can’t be arsed doing the research yourself, this page is the place to look. We’ll have deals snipers stationed everywhere in the lead up to and during the event and publishing our best finds right here.

A quick word of advice: if you come across an epic deal on a pair of AirPods, or some killer wireless headphones, don’t sit on it for too long on as these deals are almost always stock- or time-limited.

How to prepare

With that in mind, we’d suggest doing your research well ahead of time, so when the right deal comes along you’re ready to pull the trigger. Check out our buyer’s guides (see below), work out what you need from your next pair of headphones and set a budget. Offers will be flying at you from all angles and you don’t want to get blinded by choice.

What deals to expect

Whichever headphones you’re after, it’s likely you’ll find a good deal on them somewhere around Prime Day.

If you’re on a budget, you’ll want to keep an eye out for the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 or AKG Y50BTs. If noise cancelling is your bag, then the Sony WH-XB900N or Marshall Monitor II A.N.C. Bluetooth headphones are great options when budget is tight but you still want great audio and awesome battery life.

You should be able to save some decent cash on Apple AirPods Pros too, while you can’t go far wrong with a pair of the Sony WF-1000XM3 true wireless earbuds or Sony WH-1000XM4 Bluetooth noise cancelling headphones, both consistently high scorers in our reviews.

If you’re a vinyl fan, the ‘phones to go for right now are the Beyerdynamic Amiron or Sennheiser HD660S.
