Amazon’s second-gen Echo Buds are just $50 today
Are you looking for a pair of quality noise canceling headphones that don’t cost a fortune? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out today’s deal on Amazon’s second-generation Echo Buds. Right now, Amazon is taking a whopping 59% off, selling its popular wireless headphones with a wired charging case for just $49.99 instead of $119.99. Those that include a wireless charging case cost $139.99. (If you really want the wireless charging case, buying it separately costs $69.99.)
It’s a new all-time high on a pair of Bluetooth headphones that offer really good sound quality for the price, plus a great passthrough mode that lets you hear your surroundings. Their noise cancellation technology may not be as good as the more expensive AirPods Pros or the Bose QuietComfort headphones, but we still found it to be effective (it’s a great plus for this price). Plus, the headphones come with IPX4 water and sweat resistance, and they support hands-free Alexa, so you can quickly perform a range of voice tasks without your phone. Read our review.
LG has just launched its new C2 OLED range, at least in most size configurations, which means we’re starting to see record lows on its soon-to-be predecessor from last year. Right now, for example, Woot is taking $850 off LG’s 65-inch C1 OLED, selling it for $1,649.99 instead of $2,499.99. This setup hasn’t fallen below $1,746.99 so far, so this is an all-time low that beats the discounted price we saw on Black Friday.
LG’s new 2022 OLED TVs may offer brighter “Evo” screens, built-in speakers that LG says sound better, and improved tone mapping, but LG’s C1 still shares many features in common with its next generation counterpart. This includes a fast 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision compatibility and HDMI 2.1 support, making them perfect for next-gen consoles like the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. Both models also support support FreeSync and G-Sync adaptive sync technologies — so you can enjoy high frame rates without screen tearing on PC or Xbox — and both offer a “Game Optimizer” dashboard that lets you customize settings for specific game genres.
The 8BitDo Pro 2, one of the best wireless Nintendo Switch controllers you can buy, is an even better buy today now that it’s hit an all-time low price. Regularly $49.99, Amazon is currently selling the gray model for $42.50. If you’re not already familiar, the 8BitDo Pro 2 is similar to the more expensive Nintendo Switch Pro controller and comes with customizable grips, rear buttons and Bluetooth support so you can connect it to your PC, Mac or mobile device. While it lacks the HD rumble and Amiibo support of the Nintendo Switch Pro controller (and its left analog stick and d-pad swap slots), it’s also rechargeable via USB-C. . Read our review.
Apple’s latest-generation iPad Air is more affordable than ever now that Apple’s fifth-generation iPad Air is officially available. Typically $599.99, Amazon is currently selling the 64GB Wi-Fi model for $469.99 in space gray and green, a new all-time low you’ll see at checkout. Although it was launched in 2020, the fourth generation iPad Air’s A14 Bionic chip is still fast and the tablet has an excellent screen. However, despite sharing a similar design to the iPad Pro, the latest generation model isn’t as powerful as the new iPad Air – which features Apple’s M1 processor – and doesn’t offer no more 5G support. That said, it’s still a good buy if you want something with a few more bells and whistles than the entry-level iPad but don’t want to spend $599 on the new iPad Air. Read our review.
Speaking of affordable alternatives, if LG’s top C1 OLED is out of your budget, Hisense’s 55-inch U6G ULED TV is on sale for around $448 at Amazon and Best Buy. That’s a roughly $200 discount and a new all-time low on the 4K TV, which supports Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10 Plus, and Google Assistant. You don’t need any additional streaming hardware either, as this TV offers instant access to YouTube, Disney Plus, and all the other major streaming apps. Plus, as a bonus, Hisense also offers a $100 food delivery digital gift card that you can use for UberEats, Domino’s, DoorDash, InstaCart, and more. Best Buy, meanwhile, is additionally offering six months free of Peacock Premium with every purchase, as long as you’re a new subscriber.
