Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin wireless powered speaker $699 (Was $799)

You can keep your sound and budget afloat if you act fast and snag the Bowers & Wilkins Zeppelin—a visual and sonic statement. It’s one of our favorite smart speakers because it’s Alexa-compatible and can playback high-resolution streaming audio over Wi-Fi. And it’s one of our favorite speakers period because of its five reference-grade drivers adapted from the company’s high-end speakers. It delivers a frequency range of 35 Hz-24 kHz, with some serious bass without turbulence. Plus, it’s currently $100 off—and discounts are one of the sweetest sounds to our ears.

Prefer a more standard approach to stereo sound? There are a ton of Bowers & Wilkins 600 Series bookshelf and floorstanding speakers on sale with savings of up to $460 a pair. And if you’re looking for a concert for one, the ultra-stylish, extremely resolving Bowers & Wilkins Px7 S2 over-ear noise-canceling wireless headphones can be had for $50 off their standard price.

Less interested in a single listening station and more open to an immersive whole-house audio ecosystem? You can save almost $100 on the package price of a Sonos Arc Dolby Atmos soundbar/connected music system and matching Sonos Sub Gen. 3—just in time for the upcoming release of the Sonos Era 300 spatial audio wireless speakers (which can play standalone multichannel music or act as rear surround channels for the Arc). And if you’ve still got someone with analog inklings in the house, the Victrola Stream Carbon semi-automatic belt-drive turntable with built-in Wi-Fi and Sonos streaming technology is currently $100 off.

Here are a few more of the, well, best-sounding deals:

  • Sennheiser AMBEO Soundbar | Plus 7.1.4-channel soundbar with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X $1,299.95 (Was $1,499.95)
  • Samsung HW-Q990B 11.1.4-channel soundbar and wireless subwoofer system $1,497.99 (Was $1,899.99)
  • Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II True wireless noise-cancelling in-ear headphones $249 (Was $299)
  • Sony SRS-XG500 X-Series MEGA BASS portable Bluetooth speaker $348 (Was $198)
  • JBL PartyBox Encore Essential Portable Bluetooth speaker with light display $249.95 (Was $299.95)

Don’t mind paying for the best? Here are our top recommendations for audiophiles:

  • The Bowers & Wilkins Px8, which we consider “flagship Bluetooth noise-cancelling headphones to usher you into a high-energy world” in our review
  • The Focal Bathys, which we declared “top-tier wireless headphones for exploring music’s buoyant depths” in our review
  • The Focal Utopia, which we consider the very best headphone when money is no object and which has amazing synergy with the Naim Uniti Atom Headphone Edition amp/DAC/network streamer
  • The Meze LIRIC, one of our favorite planar-magnetic headphones and our top pick for one that is closed-back yet still sounds spacious
  • The JBL 4305P Studio Monitors, our selection for best powered speakers if you stream high-resolution audio
  • The KEF LS50 Wireless II, an even more premium pick for pristine connected audio
