There is perhaps no piece of technology that is more universally beloved and universally understood to be more necessary than earbuds. Most of us seldom leave the house without our pair of little ear peanuts—the ones that bring us our favorite music, podcasts, and audiobooks without the hassle of a tangling wire.

But if you already own a pair, you know just how easy it is to lose one of the buds or—God forbid—the charging case and pay upwards of $100 to replace that one part. That’s why, when possible, earbuds should be purchased when they are on sale. Luckily, this year for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, a wide array of brands have slashed their prices. So that you don’t have to go digging through the internet looking for these deals, we put together a roundup of the best wireless earbuds on sale this weekend.
