With the October sales upon us, it is indeed exciting and at the same nerve-racking as to what to pick up. Flipkart and Amazon are advertising their massive deals days and it can get a bit tiring to figure out where to head to, to get the best deals. Both sites always show something off but is it really a good deal? We looked through thousands of deals to bring you the best.
Amazon has some amazing to good discounts on some products. The key here is that the following audio category products keep rotating on Lightning deals. So if you don’t see it right now, it shows up in “Upcoming Deals” in a few hours.
Single handedly, the BEST DEAL on Amazon is the Sennheiser 598 SE and 598 CS headphones (Amazon exclusive) at Rs 9,909 and Rs 6,999; both cost Rs 18,990 otherwise. Practically the same with supreme sound while the new 598 CS being a closed back design offers more bass and zero sound leakage, unlike the SE original.
If you are looking for a deal on good Bluetooth speakers, Logitech X50 speakers should suffice. They have good bass in a small package and attractive colours. You’ll see various colours go on lightning deal periodically, so take your pick. The deal price is showing as Rs 1,229. If you are looking better sound with a lot more oomph in a sturdy feature-rich package with around Rs 1,000 off compared to other shops, Sony SRS XB3 for Rs 8,850 approx. is a good choice. If you want all-weather loudspeakers with tonnes of features, Creative SoundBlaster FRee (see full review) is a great choice for a discounted price of Rs 4,799 a drop from Rs 5,499.
If you are looking for decent 2.1 computer speakers, Creative SBS A-120 and Creative T3150 Wireless Bluetooth speakers are available for Rs 1,400 and Rs 2,759 respectively, effectively knocking off Rs 200 and Rs 700 approx from regular price.

Completely avoid the god awful JBL T250SI headphone offered on Flipkart (and Amazon), if you value good sound in a lower price, head straight for excellent clarity in the Sennheiser HD180 for just Rs 799, only Rs 100 more than the JBL’s. If you are looking for premium headphones, the Audio Technica ATH-M30x for Rs 3,999 is a good choice, Rs 700 cheaper than Amazon itself. In earphones, the stylish and colourful Skullcandy S2IKDY-010 Ink'd is a good deal at Rs 799.
Another good deal is the Sony Xplod CDX-G1150U car stereo at Rs 3,999 beating market price by Rs 700. Looking to buy grandparents a simple radio? Panasonic RF-P50 FM Radio for Rs 867 is a solid buy with its simplicity, portability and price.
