Black Friday Speaker Deal Predictions
- Klipsch will take up to 60% off its speakers (and headphones)
- Logitech UE Boom 2 speaker will hit $60
- JBL Flip 4 could drop to $40, and the Charge 3 will be $70
Soundbars from Samsung and Vizio could go as high as $120 and $118, respectively. However, budget brands like RCA will have offerings as low as $30.
Soundbars with a few more features will hit midtier prices; you'll see Vizio models from $50, Toshiba ones for $70, and Sony units for $90. Deals on bookshelf speakers will also be common, with pairs of JBL units falling as low as $90. Higher-tier brands will be priced closer to $250.
Looking to upgrade your home theater system? Expect to pay $170 for select Pioneer models, or $140 for brands like Monoprice. Offerings from other brands will drop even lower, including Logitech THX-certified systems for as little as $90.
Last year, those interested in a massive living room upgrade could shell out $1,500 for a fully wireless Klipsch system — a savings of $250. We wouldn't be surprised to see similar packages this year, but once again, they'll likely be pricey. Speaking of Klipsch, expect the audio brand to have a solid Black Friday sale that takes up to 60% off headphones and speakers.
Bose is a popular — and pricey — audio brand, though we expect to see a fair number of refurbished models on offer this Black Friday. The SoundLink Color II, for example, will drop to around $50. In the market for a new one? The SoundLink Micro Bluetooth speaker will cost around $70.
The Ultimate Ears Boom line of Bluetooth speakers routinely receives high ratings. Although you won't see every model discounted for Black Friday, we expect new Boom 2 speakers to be priced around $60. Plus, the Wonderboom could drop to $45 for Black Friday. Wonderboom deals have commonly hit $50 this year — and even $47 in one instance.
We've also seen the Megaboom for $110 this year, which is $33 cheaper than last Black Friday. In 2018, we expect the Megaboom to drop to at least $110, but $100 is also possible.
JBL will have a few different models on sale. We expect a new Flip 4 and Charge 3 to be discounted to $40 and $70, respectively. The Pulse 2 could make an appearance at $45, but that's probably going to be a used-model price. Another used speaker deal you'll likely find is the Charge 2 for $45. One JBL model we don't expect to see on sale is the Pulse 3. It was released last year, and we haven't seen any discounts on it.
