I’ve tested hundreds of headphones and this deal is a serious Prime Day bargain

Get the Technics EAH-A800 for a new low price in this Amazon Prime Day headphone deal

I’ve seen more headphones deals over the past several Prime Day sales than I can count, which makes impressing me quite tricky. However, this tasty discount on the Technics EAH-A800 has managed to do just that: this Prime Day, you can pick them up for £189, down from a lofty average of £287 and an RRP of £300.

That’s an enormous saving on a pair of over-headphones that takes the fight to the biggest names in the audio world, so don’t miss out – this offer expires at midnight tonight. And remember, you’ll need to sign up to Amazon Prime to benefit.

So why am I so smitten with the Technics EAH-A800, and this deal in particular? Let’s summarise: in my full Technics EAH-A800 review, I praised the headphones’ superb sound quality, impressive battery life and comfortable design. In my mind, these are the three most important components of great headphones, and only a select few of the hundreds of pairs I’ve tested hit all three.

I found that the EAH-A800s sat snugly on my head, thanks in part to a pair of supremely comfy memory foam ear cushions. Your mileage may vary, but I reckon they look the part, too: I’m a sucker for the industrial, brushed metal look.

As far as drawbacks are concerned, I had two of note during my original review. The first was that the active noise cancellation is less effective than that of rivals – the EAH-A800s isolate surrounding sounds well, but I found that on occasion the dual-mic setup let particularly loud noises through.

The second was the price: at £300, the EAH-A800 were more expensive than most of their key competitors. But in light of this hefty Prime Day discount, I have no issue encouraging you to pick up a pair while they’re on offer.
