Audio Deals 2018
There are enough speakers and headphones out there that you can always find audio gear with serious price reductions. But it's equally easy to get misled into a deal that isn't as good as it looks - here's what to look for.
Most likely you'll be in the market for a Bluetooth speaker so you can play music wirelessly from your phone, tablet, computer, or similar.
The best Bluetooth speakers start from around £150 (before discounts or deals), though you can also find plenty of Bluetooth speakers below £100, and you should look for features like 360-degree audio, Wi-Fi support, and a long battery life if you want something portable.
If you'd rather something to pair with your TV, a soundbar is often the simplest option - they feature a variety of inputs and even Bluetooth support to serve as a general speaker too. Otherwise, there's always 5.1 or 7.1 surround sound systems if you're really committed.
Finally, a word about smart speakers like the Amazon Echo and Google Home. These usually aren't the best speakers around, but their voice controls and smart home integration are undoubtedly appealing - just don't expect them to match the sound quality of top speakers at the same price.
Headphones come in even more varieties than speakers these days, but you're often looking for the same sort of features.
It's likely you've considered picking up wireless headphones, which now have enough battery life to avoid being inconvenient - though the sound quality still can't quite match a cable. There are also more niche headphones designed specifically for sport or for kids.
No matter what type of headphones you buy, look for a wide frequency response, balanced sound profile (unless you know you like your audio with particularly heavy bass or treble), and make sure it's got the right sort of cable to fit your device.
