Lenovo and Motorola unveiled the 2016 Moto flagships today at Tech World with a line of modular back plates and a few months of Verizon exclusivity (boo). That's not the only thing to be annoyed about. According to Motorola's spec sheet for the Moto Z devices, it only does audio over the Type-C port. We've checked out the device in real life to confirm, and there's no headphone jack to be found. This does not seem like a good idea. Read More
The Audio-Technica ATH-M50x headphones are some of the best cans you can get without spending hundreds of dollars, and they go on sale fairly often. Today, you can get a refurbished pair for a mere $90. Some may scoff at paying $90 for headphones. Your phone came with earbuds, right? So why buy something else? Because these are way, way better.

JayBird makes some of the best sport-focused Bluetooth headphones around, but they don't make them cheap. The X2 Sport model is normally $150 at retail, but Amazon has several different colors of them on sale today. The white version, and only the white version, is just $99 with free two-day shipping for Amazon Prime subscribers. The other colors are going for between $109 (black) and $134 (red), which is still a decent discount. Read More
Audio-Technica's M40x and M50x headphones are some of the best loved headphones in existence. Rocking a 4.6 star rating on Amazon with over 2,200 reviews, the M50x is a shoo-win for the 'Most Popular' award in the audio device high school yearbook. They sound great, are well built, fit comfortably, and aren't terribly expensive.
Especially today, as they are currently on sale. Amazon has the M40x for an all-time low at $64.99 and the M50x for just $117.95 – which is also a great price for that set of cans. If you, like me, live in a state where Amazon charges sales tax, then you may choose to pick up the M40x for the same price through Adorama instead (make sure you use the provided link or the discounted price won't appear).

There are two things you need to know about this deal. One, the Midnight Black model of the Jaybird X2's is on sale for $124.89 on Amazon, and two, that Artem loves the headphones this company makes. In fact, he loves them so much that if he saw you wearing them on a train, he would likely approach you and strike up a conversation about how much he loves Jaybird headphones.
In that conversation he would probably mention that he owns a website called Android Police, on which he reviewed the previous generation of said headphones in an extremely detailed 3,000 word article. Read More
Google recently started selling Bose headphones in the Google Store. There are a number of models to choose from, with prices ranging from $129.99 to $299.99.
The top-of-the-line option is the QuietComfort 25. If your heart (or ears) is set on a pair, close the Google Store tab and head over to Amazon. Read More
Google's phones and tablets tend not to come with earbuds anymore, but those are always junk anyway. Better to buy something nicer to use with all your electronics, right? Now Google has a selection of Bose headphones in the Google Store so you can get that done when you order a phone or tablet. Read More
If you're looking for some high-grade headphones to get you through that insufferable plane ride or 12-hour road trip that's looming in a few weeks, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better deal than the one Adorama has right now. The online electronics store is selling Audio-Technica's ATH-M50x, a studio-grade set of around-the-ear wired headphones, for just $99. That's $70 off of Adorama's regular price, and a whopping $140 cheaper than Audio-Technica's recommended retail price. The white version is the only one available, but it's even cheaper than the Amazon deal from a couple of weeks ago.
The ATH-M50x features a fold-up design for compact storage, 45mm drivers, a detachable headphone cord (with no less than three included coiled and straight cables), a 15-28,000Hz frequency range, and an included carrying case. Read More
Drop your turkey stuffing right now and listen to me! This is a good deal, like a really really good deal. I wouldn't interrupt your Thanksgiving preparations and cooking if it wasn't a worthy urgent matter.
If you want big-ass headphones, with a big-ass sound, and a big-ass quality, you can't go wrong with V-MODA's Crossfade lineup. From the M-80 to the Wireless, those headphones are among the most popular on our site and for good reason: they're great. Read More
Earlier this week I posted a deal for a pair of super bass heavy cans, the Sony Bluetooth Extra Bass Headphones. While that set of over-ear audio blasters appealed to some listeners, others may prefer a more balanced sound profile. If that's the style of headphones you're after, you'd be hard pressed to find a pair more popular than the Audio-Technica ATH-M50x. Today, they just happen to be available for their lowest price ever at $119.99, ten bucks off their previous low.
I could write a paragraph extolling the virtues of M50x's, but I won't. If you want to know why they are so well liked, you can find out for yourself by reading some of the nearly 2,500 reviews on Amazon, which award the headphones an average score of 4.7 stars. Read More
