Listening to music, podcasts or audiobooks whilst cycling indoors and outdoors can be really enjoyable and sometimes it can be really nice to immerse yourself in an interesting podcast conversation or audiobook as you spin through the lanes on a warm afternoon. At the other end of the spectrum, if you are completing a set of intervals on the smart trainer or warming up for a race, listening to music has been shown to have positive benefits during exercise.
A good quality pair of headphones can often prove to be a bit of a revelation if and when you upgrade. Sound quality, as well as comfort, can both often improve making the cycling and audio experience far better, browse our range of discounted headphones below, there's a fair chance you may find something you fancy.
Cyber Monday Apple AirPods deals
Apple AirPods 2nd Gen:
$129.99 $79.99 at Amazon
£129.00 £99.00 at Amazon
Save 23-38% - The 2nd Gen of the base model AirPods might have a slightly less premium sound quality and come with a slightly shorter feature list compared to the Pro, but if you're after a more affordable option, they're still a great pair. The UK deal here isn't quite as strong, but at under £100 this is still a deal we'd recommend against the competition.
Apple AirPods 3rd Gen:
$169.00 $139.99 at Amazon USA
£169.00 £149.00 at Amazon UK
Save 12-17% - The latest generation of the ubiquitous AirPods are on offer at $20 off. They feature 30 hours battery life, spatial audio, and are sweat and water-resistant. We've saw them at $139.99 for a brief period back in August though, so unless you're in a hurry we'd suggest holding out. The USA deal is the better of the two here, and according to our tools, is the lowest these have been priced since their launch in 2021.
Cyber Monday Shokz deals
£129.95 £89.95 (31% off)
$129.95 $89.95 (31% off)
The OpenRun are the sporty version in the range, with a lightweight frame and a secure but comfortable fit. They're good for around eight hours of use and are IP67-rated against water and dust. They're actually probably a better pick for many cyclists than the more expensive OpenRun Pro, because they're better sealed against weather and cheaper.
The Mini version, which plays slightly nicer with helmets and high-collar winter jackets, are also on the same offer.
Shokz OpenRun Pro:
£159.95 £109.95 (31% off)
$129.95 $89.95 (31% off)
The OpenRun Pro are only IP55 rated, so not quite as well sealed as the OpenRun, but that's still probably enough for all but the worst rain conditions. They do benefit from a slightly better sound quality though, as well as a longer battery life of 10 hours and perhaps the biggest reason to choose these, the quick charge that will give 90 mins of use from a five-minute charge.

£79.95 £54.95 (31% off)
$79.95 $54.95 (31% off)
The OpenMove are the entry-level product in the Shokz range, with lower levels of sound quality and shorter battery life (six hours) than the models above. They're the most affordable in the range though, and the same percentage off deal.

Apple AirPods Max:
$549 $449.99 at Amazon
18% Off - If you care about sound quality above all else, then the Airpods Max with their over-the-head style and larger drivers are what you want.

£29.99 £19.99 at Amazon
33% off - At nearly half price, these solid little wireless earbuds are even better value. You get 5 hours of playtime from each earbud and an additional 15 from the charging case. They're 20% smaller than the JBud Air too, which is great if you've got smaller ears.

£89.99 £74.00 at Amazon
18% off - These headphones from Sennheiser are designed to fold up, so they make a compact package to travel with when not in use. They boast 30-hour battery life and fast charging via USB C. These headphones have been cheaper, we'd say hold on until Black Friday for hopefully a bigger discount.
Bose QuietComfort 45 Over-Ear Wireless Headphones:
£289.95 £189.95 at Currys
£100 off - Bose's premium over-ear headphones might be overkill for a turbo session, but they'll serve you well in other situations too. With 24-hour battery life and just 2 hours of recharge time, they'll keep you listening, while the premium leather pads will make it a comfortable experience.
