Want a great last-minute gift for the geek, gadgeteer, gamer, office worker, or commuter, in your life? What about a gift to yourself for the holidays — nobody said we couldn't just buy something nice for us, right? Well, there's a great Woot deal on a pair of Sony headphones and it should be right up your alley.
While the MDR-XB950BT/B name doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, these headphones do have features that make them very appealing. They work both over Bluetooth and a wired cable, with a 20-hour estimated battery life in wireless mode. They have NFC for easy pairing, big plush earcups, 40mm driver units, and a Bass Boost button that triggers the DSP to produce "club-like enhanced low-frequencies."
The MSRP is $199.99, but Amazon is selling them now for $128. The best deal we've seen on these before was $98 last year (and $75 for a refurbished unit a couple of months ago). But today only and for the next 16 hours, Woot is discounting them to $89.99. You will have to pay $5 for shipping (delivery before Christmas) and the only color available on Woot seems to be black, but aside from this, you're getting a good deal. Oh and in case you're wondering, they're rated about 4.3/5 stars on Amazon with more than 1300 reviews.
