[Deal Alert] A Popular Deal Returns - V-MODA Crossfade M-80 On-Ear Headphones Only $80 Today On Amazon And BestBuy, Down From $150

The V-MODA Crossfade M-80 is an exceptionally well built set of noise isolating cans with superb sound and distinctive styling. We loved them here at Android Police when we reviewed them after they launched back in 2012 and that adoration has only grown as the price has decreased of the past couple years.

Today you grab a pair of these sweet headphones for just $80 at Amazon or BestBuy, about half of what they normally sell for. That matches the best price we have ever seen on the M-80 and is a killer deal. If you need some new headphones (or just really want some) you shouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Samsung Officially Announces The Gear S2, With 1.2" Circular Display, Tizen OS, And.... Other Exciting Things, I Guess

The Samsung Gear S2 is now officially official, and while it may be small, there's no doubt the watch carries a lot of brand baggage out of the box. The original Samsung Gear was, and this is a fact, bad. The second one wasn't even really that much better. And the Gear Fit, while sort of cool to look at, was basically worthless.

Well, Zoe 2.0 is now available in the Play Store, and it lets you create things on your device rather than using the cloud again. But, and this is a pretty decent but, you can only create Zoes locally on HTC devices.
