Best early Prime Day 2020 headphone deals: AirPods Pro return to $199, Jabra Elite 45h for $80, Sony WF-1000XM3 for $178 and more

This story is part of Amazon Prime Day, CNET’s guide on everything you need to know and how to make sure you get the best deal.

Prime Day 2020 officially kicks off in just a few days. But unofficially, several companies are already coming out with early Amazon Prime Day deals. In the headphone space, it’s a return to some of the deep discounts on Sony headphones that we’ve seen before — and you don’t even need to wait until Black Friday or Cyber Monday to take advantage of them. 

More specifically, we’re seeing Apple headphones return to their all-time low prices (even as a new AirPods Studio over-ear headphone remains rumored for Tuesday). Sony has again slashed prices on last year’s WF-1000XM3 as well as the newer WF-SP800N, which features noise canceling and is water-resistant, and the entry-level WF-XB700 Extra Bass, which is back down to the lowest price we’ve seen, at $78. 

We also expect to see more headphone discounts during the official Prime Day sale, so if you’re in the market for a specific type of headphone, say ones with noise cancellation, bluetooth connectivity, or true wireless earbuds, keep checking back.

If you can’t wait for Prime Day to score a deal, we’ve collected some of the biggest markdowns from the long-awaited sales event below. Note that you’ll need to be an Amazon Prime member to get these exclusive deals.

That’s still pricey, but it’s $50 off what you’ll pay at the Apple Store, and $20 less
