It is Black Friday and Cyber Weekend time again on Headfonics with our annual overview of some of the best discounts and promotions in the audiophile world in 2021.
We have been running this feature now for the last two years with great success so after what has been another difficult year worldwide with Covid, we hope you can find what you are looking for to break out of the lockdown and quarantine ruts with a nice spending splurge.
Below is a list of the best deals we found on the web thus far this year with the relevant links and a brief summary. We apologize in advance for any unforeseen errors or changes as the data comes in thick and fast with companies sometimes making small changes along the way.
The list is not fixed, there are always new deals popping up so stay tuned on our FB page for any further sales that crop up. If you find any cool deals feel free to also add them in the comments section below.
For those who want the quick summary here are the companies highlighted per page for Black Friday 2021. Please scroll to the bottom and select the relevant page number to access the company discount information or click on the page number immediately below.
As always, we make no money from posting these deals. There are no affiliate links in this feature so they are all for your consumption.
Starting today at midnight PST, US cable specialist PLUSSOUND will be knocking off 20% on all their custom cables, accessories, and wires for Black Friday 2021. Most fast though this is a one day only even and likely to be their biggest discount of the year. Just ended the code BF2021 at the checkout on the PLUSSOUND website to get your 20% off.
Additionally, all custom cable orders will be thrown into a raffle with a chance to win a free X8 Series custom cable with winners announced via email and on their Facebook page.
We do recommend the X8 series, particularly the flagship X8 Tri-Silver which we reviewed and recommended a while back.
FiiO is joining for Black Friday 2021 this year also with a wide range of most portable headgear including IEMs, TWS, and Bluetooth capable cables. You will find some excellent choices here from the FA9, FH7, and the older FH5 up for grabs as well as the newer FD5.

For Black Friday 2021, Effect Audio has a few promotions running side by side. The picture above is the first one with a special bundle including their new AXOIM monitor and cable bundle with $100 off.
The second is 15% off their Vogue and Heritage series cables which includes the likes of the Grandioso, Maestro, and Virtuoso from the Vogue side and the big hitters such as the Cleopatra, Leonidas II, and the Leonidas II Octa from the Heritage range.
The final promotion is a voucher-based one where you can pick up their usual $50 gift vouchers for just $30 for the first 100 who buy them. Only 10 vouchers will be accepted per transaction.
The voucher can be used on all EA products except for Axiom, Centurion, and accessories products.
All Black Friday 2021 promotions apply from Nov 22nd to Nov 29th, 2021 Singapore time.
For Black Friday 2021, HiBy is offering up to 27% off a wide range of their DAPs, IEM, and accessories starting 25th Nov and ending 30th Nov 2021.
There are some hefty discounts here including up to $50 off the HiBy R3 Pro Saber at $169 down from $209 and another $129 off the HiBy R5 Saber down from $399 to $339.
For IEM folks, the Seeds II gets up to a $40 discount as well as $40 off their excellent WH2 dynamic TWS. The WH3 TWS also drops down by $40.
I believe there was a crazy $99 flash deal also for the Crystal 6 and the Crystal 4 IEMs for the first 10 orders but that has long gone now though the bundle deals with the R6 2020 will get you some good discounts off the individual SRP price of each when combined.
One of the best portable audio dealers in the US and every year they have an incredible Black Friday and Cyber Weekend sale. 2021 is no different with big discounts on some quality brands from Unique Melody, Cayin, Effect Audio, Empire Ears, Vision Ears, and Shanling to name but a few.
I am pretty sure there is something on the list below to tempt you to whip out the plastic!
All Black Friday deals are applicable until December 1st, 2021 PMT.
The Linsoul Black Friday 2021 promotion is very broad ranging from giveaways of Gift Vouchers of up to $50 and a chance to win 50% off for the new THIEAUDIO V16 Divinity flagship IEM.
For those that join in the vouchers will be sent to the registered email addresses of the winners after the campaign has ended which runs from Nov 25th midnight GMT+8 to Nov 29th, 2021 GMT+8.
They are of course running some discounted products during this period of 10% or more including popular favorites such as $20 off the 7Hz Timeless IEM, $35 off the HarmonicDyne Zeus headphones, and up to $85 off the new Android touch-capable Shanling EM5 desktop streamer which we will have out for review very shortly.
Campfire Audio is doing Black Friday 2021 a bit differently from previous years. It used to be a one-time thing on their deals website but this year the deals are spread across 3 websites including the main ALO Audio website and Campfire Audio.
On the ALO Sudio Deals website, the discounts and promos cover mainly B-Stock and Used Inventory Sale featuring a further 20% off the already discounted prices. That includes $150 of the new Holocene, (we will have a review out on it very shortly), and $70 of the new Honeydew and Satsuma.
There is also a whopping $550 off the Dorado 2020, $200 off the Vega 2020, and their Cascade headphones for as low as $599. There are quite a few more discounts there still up and available at the time of writing.
On the main ALO Audio website, the discounts cover mainly accessories, cables, and earphones but tucked in there you get some nice deals including $150 off the recent Solaris Limited Edition and $30 off the ALO Audio Pilot dongle DAC/amp.
On the Campfire Audio website, there are discounts across the board on many of their most popular models that include a very tasty $899 sale price for the Ara, even more discount for the Vega 2020 at $350 off, and $100 off the Andromeda 2020 to name but a few.
Sales are limited to available inventory on each website from Nov 22nd to Nov 29th, 2021.
JH Audio is keeping it simple enough for their Blake Friday Promotions. They are having a 20% on all custom IEMs, accessories, and apparel, 15% off their excellent signature designs, and 15% off their premium shells also.
We reviewed one of their signature designs for the Jolene earlier this year and they are probably one of the finest custom creations I have seen in a CIEM to date.
Discounts are applicable for new orders only. Discounts cannot be applied to previous or current orders. Discounts cannot be combined with any other offers or coupons.
The offer is not valid for Universal IEMs, In-Ear Survival Kit, and Comply Soft Wraps Plus. Discount prices are available for end-users only. Not available to distributors, dealers, or resellers. The sale ends 12/03/2021.
