REVIEW: The Sony Link Buds Are a Unique Take on Earbuds


Apple AirPods (Second Generation)

We know that $99 AirPods might sound like a typo or mistake, but we swear we’re not hallucinating. Now that Apple has newer AirPods for sale, Amazon has dropped prices on the previous generation to just $99.99. We don’t know how much longer this discount will be available — or when these earbuds will go out of stock! — but these were considered the world’s best wireless earbuds until recently.

Apple AirPods Pro

Apple’s 2nd and 3rd Generation AirPods are on sale, but the AirPods Pro are also being offered at a great price. At $179, you better order these AirPods Pro while they’re still in stock and on sale, as they’re sure to sell out fast. With this price drop, you save $69 on these wireless earbuds for total savings of 28%.

Apple AirPods (Third Generation)

Apple’s Third-Generation AirPods are slightly less expensive than their regular retail price of $180. These beloved headphones are down to $149.99, so this is the perfect time to buy them if you’re in need of (or just want) an upgrade.

Beats Solo3

The 40-hour battery life is the sort of stuff that turns heads. That’s right, 40 hours. You can literally fly around the world and not need to charge this headset. And the recharging is equally as impressive as five minutes of charging provides three hours of listening time. They are comfortable, sound great, and are now available on Amazon for $70 off!

REVIEW: The Ultimate Ears Fits Earbuds Are the Most Comfortable Earbuds Ever


JBL Tune 660NC

Many noise-canceling headphones can be on the pricey side, but JBL’s Tune 660NC model retail for around $100 and often fall below that price point on Amazon and at some of the other big-box electronics retailers. The Tune is one model down from the JBL Live 660NC, which also often goes on sale, but with 44 hours of battery time while using JBL’s active noise-cancelling mode and Pure Bass sound, these are a more than acceptable fallback option.

JBL Quantum 300

Look, we all love the idea of wireless everything: chargers, phones, internet. But there is something to say about a wired connection, and these gaming headphones from JBL make that case and then some. You don’t have to stress about batteries or sound or voice lag with wired. That means you’re genuinely plugged in, hearing everything as it happens. And thanks to the built-in mic, you’ll sound crystal clear as you blast your pals to pixels, game in and game out.

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

Samsung’s Pro version of the Galaxy Buds (which features a whole host of smart features, including active noise cancellation and more) is down $15 at Amazon. While that’s not the cheapest we’ve seen them, the savings are nothing to scoff at, considering those features and the extremely comfortable fit.

Beats Solo Pro Wireless Noise Cancelling On-Ear Headphones

Apple and Beats by Dre aren’t making the Solo Pro any longer, having moved on to new models, but that means you can get a deep discount on the previous model. Walmart has dropped the on-ear, noise-canceling headphones to $99, making these a steal if you don’t mind not having the latest version.
