Any day starts better with a carefully curated playlist of your favorite tracks. But as audio isn't one-size-fits-all, we've put together a selection of stellar speakers and headphones that should suit everyone's ears and wallet…
We know these deals are strictly car-related. But, as the holidays are approaching, we wanted to share some of these top audio deals with Jalopnik readers. We ordered these deals from cheapest to most expensive. Enjoy!
Active Wrap Headphones — 51% off
For the more physically active listener, these headphones might work better. The Active Wrap 'phones are wireless and have noise-cancelling technology, but they are designed to stay attached even if you have the most violent running style imaginable. Plus, they have the whole microphone-and-remote thing, too.
Wireless Bluetooth Feather Buds — 58% off
The background hum of a city is not the sweetest musical accompaniment, so these noise-cancelling buds are great if you have to commute. They're also wireless and super lightweight, plus they have a remote and a microphone, so you can keep your phone safely pocketed.
RAW Beats Speaker — 50% off
If you prefer to hear music in the open air, the RAW is a good option. It offers nice sound quality, decent power, and a waterproof/dustproof/shockproof/scratch resistant exterior. In other words, a tough cookie.
Bluetooth Shower Speaker — 60% off
There's no place like the shower for belting out a power ballad without social repercussions, so you might as well have a decent backing track. This shower speaker is splash proof (as you might hope), wireless, and equipped with a microphone, so you can talk to Siri…in the shower.
New Soundfreaq Double Spot — 25% off
Soundfreaq is primarily known for two things — BIG sound and great integrations with mobile devices. Both attributes apply to the Double Spot, which can charge USB devices and has its own EQ for cooler or warmer audio. Plus, it has a six-hour internal battery, and a very nice exterior, methinks.
AIAIAI TMA-1 Headphones — 36% off
And finally, something a bit special. The TMA-1 'phones not only look the part, but they also back it up with superb sound quality, thanks to 40mm closed titanium drivers. No wonder, given that the likes of James Murphy, A-Trak, Seth Troxler and Madlib worked on their design. Plus, they offer good cushioning, and interchangeable earcups, so comfort is definitely a highlight.
