Sony's WF-1000XM3 is back at the best price ever

Sony's WF-1000XM3 is back at the best price ever

Best Buy and Amazon are hosting a deal on Sony's WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds that offer stellar sound quality and active noise cancellation. Originally $229, they're available in either black or silver colors from Amazon for $148. Best Buy has them for $150. This model includes a USB-C charging case and several sets of ear tips to help you find a perfect fit. The XM3s outpaced Sony's own XM4 which was released in June 2021, but this older model is still a great value. We called the XM3 "the best AirPods rival" at release, citing their long battery life, effective noise cancellation, and seriously good sound quality. Considering that their price has dropped sharply (and that the XM4 costs $278), this is an especially good time to consider buying them.

It's "Samsung Week" on Amazon (fun times, given it's Apple Day) and the Samsung Galaxy Book Pro is currently available for the best price. Normally $1,300, today you can pick up a 15.6-inch laptop with an OLED screen, an Intel Core i7 processor, and 512GB of storage in either Mystic Blue or Mystic Silver colorways for $1,100 (stock selling out soon) ), though) huh. Other models are also on sale, including the 13.3-inch version, which boasts similar features but is selling for $1,000 instead of $1,200.

If portability matters a lot to you, the Galaxy Book Pro laptop is ultralight—so light, in fact, that our reviewer dubbed it one of the "lightest laptops you can buy, period." It's one of Samsung's first OLED Windows PCs to feature the new "AMOLED" display, which emits less blue light than other LCD panels. Additionally, the laptop has the latest 11th generation processor from Intel, which we liked.

If you're more of an Apple fan, the AirPods Pro are currently on sale on Amazon for $180, which is just $10 shy of their lowest price ever. As noted in our review, Apple's true wireless earbuds differ dramatically from the second-gen AirPods, offering better sound quality and a larger case. They also boast excellent active noise cancellation, seamless integration with iOS, and support for Apple's Spatial Audio, an exceptional – albeit inconsistent – ​​feature that Netflix now supports on both the iPhone and iPad. The rumoured, third-generation AirPods could make their debut as soon as today during Apple's "California Streaming" event, but we don't expect them to offer support for ANC or spatial audio.

For those who find the AirPods Pro too expensive, there are the Beats Studio Buds, which are selling on Woot for the lowest price ever. Normally $150, Amazon Prime members can supply a refurbished pair with a one-year limited warranty or so for $110 through September.

The Studio Buds are the first pair of Beats wireless earbuds to include active noise cancellation; They also claim support for Android features, come with a USB-C charging case and an IPX4 water-resistant design. In our review, we saw how we enjoyed the small, comfortable design while praising the sound quality, especially given the price tag. Earbuds like Amazon's second-gen Echo Buds offer better noise cancellation, sure, but if you're in the market for a comfortable pair of wireless earbuds that don't break the bank, this is a good one to consider. Is. Is. Might be a bargain - especially if you're an Android user.

Finally, five months after its debut, Amazon is offering its first discount on a four-pack of Apple AirTag, which was launched in April. Normally $99, you can currently buy a pack of ultra-wideband-ready Bluetooth trackers for $95, a slight discount but one we've seen before.

AirTag is an impressive tracker that offers many privacy and security features, such as end-to-end encryption. It's a good buy for those deeply embedded in the Apple ecosystem, as it only works with Apple devices and offers features that third-party devices can't. Trackers like coins don't have lanyard holes, but, luckily, Apple's leather AirTag Loop is also on sale in brown or red for $33 or $35, respectively.

For a limited time, Newegg is throwing in a $25 gift card when you grab the Oculus Quest 2 Elite Strap with Battery and a Carry Case for $129 from its site. The built-in battery is rechargeable and the case is capable of carrying your headset, ergonomic strap, your controller, charging cable, and a power adapter.

UploadVR, a VR-focused trade publication, praised the product in its review, calling it the most comfortable accessory Facebook offers for the Quest 2. The publication also praised the battery life after testing, noting that it doubles your maximum playtime.
