First up here are the three editor recommended bargains available on Black Friday.
SECTION 1: DJ EQUIPMENT
1. Bose QuietComfort Wireless Bluetooth Noise Cancelling Earbuds
Was: £249.95 (44% Off)
If you are anything like me I listen to music religiously and especially on the way to gigs as I work through all my new music. These are my earbuds of choice and have been for a couple of years so they’ve been fully tried and tested.
They are super comfy and the noise cancelling is outstanding. You can be in a packed airport or on a noisy train and fully immersed in music.
Easy to setup, easy to control and the battery life is HUGE.
This is such a bargain it’s ridiculous. Grab them before they are gone. They are also great for the gym, running and day to day wear.
2. SanDisk 128GB Ultra USB Flash Drive USB 3.0
Was: £15.70 (30% off)
I’ve used these SanDisk pen drives for years and never had a single issue with them, they have always been reliable and with USB 3.0 enabled they are super fast on the transfer when getting ready for a gig.
128gb is absolutely HUGE and more than you will ever need for DJ gigs so this is an absolute no brainer of a purchase.
Just make sure that you buy 2 of them so that you always have a backup just in case the deck network cable doesn’t work so you need a separate drive for each CDJ.

Was: £249.95 (24% off)
