We'll be checking the speaker deals across multiple retailers and keeping you up to date on the best discounts to be had right here.

When will Black Friday sales start?
Black Friday itself lands on 26 November 2021 for this year's main event, followed by Cyber Monday on 29 November. However, we've long gone past the point where retailers stick to those dates. Instead, black tag, or holiday sale events tend to start at least a week beforehand, sometimes right at the beginning of November, and will go on past Cyber Monday for at least another week.
Bluetooth speakers are always in and amongst the sales with a plethora of brands and models available at lower prices than usual. As with most tech, there's usually no better time to pick one up than during the Black Friday season.
What speakers do we expect to get discounts?
Every year the sales land there's always a familiar gaggle of names to pick from, and you can expect all the popular brands to have discounts available on all manner of wireless speakers. Whether it be battery powered speakers or corded smart speakers that need plugging into mains power.
One brand you're almost certainly going to see in the Black Friday discounts is Ultimate Ears. Its range of wireless, portable speakers are among the most popular, and they're almost always available cheaper over the holiday shopping season. Keep your eyes peeled for the Boom, Megaboom and Wonderboom, and you should see some tasty discounts.
We expect to see Bang & Olufsen in and amongst the deals, with the compact, round Beosound A1 leading the charge. It's often discounted this time of year and is a truly brilliant battery powered smart speaker. Other models could also be included, like the Beosound Explore or the P2 portable speaker.
Bose is also usually featured in the deals with a few different models. We'll often see discounts on the compact SoundLink Mini, cone-shaped SoundLink Revolve series as well as the much larger Home Speaker 300 and 500.
With a lot of these things - like with most categories - you'll often find the least popular colours discounted the most. So if prices on the standard black models don't seem all that exciting, have a look around for others.
