It came a little late this year, but Prime Day is finally upon us. All day today, Amazon (and competitors) will be slinging deals on all kinds of goods — phones, tablets, smart home stuff, the whole nine. And we'll be right here, digging through the pile and sharing all the good stuff with you, our dear readers.
What you see here now is far from a complete collection; there are still tons of deals to be added to this list. It'll be updated regularly for the duration of the event.
Amazon UK's two-day deal bonanza is upon us once again, hoping to take all your money before Black Friday can have its way with you. These events can be hit or miss, but there are a few good deals floating around, especially if you're looking to buy an Amazon-made device. I've delved into the depths of Prime Day to pull out a few of the better discounts for our readers on this side of the pond (the right side, in every sense).
Bluetooth earbuds are quick and convenient to use, and as wireless audio products grow in popularity, higher-quality options get cheaper. Right now you can snag a pair of Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 earbuds for just $69.99 — a full $30 off from Amazon and Best Buy.
Can't go clubbing 'cause of Coronavirus? Then you might as well have a dance party at home. Right now, Amazon is offering customers savings of up to 31% off Anker Bluetooth speakers — including the super slick Soundcore Wakey with an LED display and a built-in Qi wireless charging pad.
In the span of a couple of years, true wireless earbuds have transitioned from being a luxury purchase to a commoditized, affordable product. Even within the category, features like USB-C or Bluetooth 5.0 that were once only found on expensive models have made their way to cheap sub-$50 buds. Now, active noise cancellation is going down the price echelon and the Tribit FlyBuds NC are a perfect example. $60 for a pair of TWS buds with a good sound seems too good to be true, but in reality, the FlyBuds manage to deliver on their promise without much compromise.
Noise-cancelling technology has become more accessible over the past few years thanks to decent budget options like Tribit's QuietPlus 72. Anker makes solid headphones as well, and the company's latest sale is tough to beat. From now until tomorrow, you can pick up a pair of Anker Life 2 headphones with active noise-cancellation from Newegg for just $35.99 — a 45% discount.
Whether you're out trying to shave off that quarantine weight or at home cozying up with a good book, you probably want some headphones to fend off distractions and keep you in the zone — you need to concentrate and you need a solution at a decent price. Anker has an offering for you, with its Soundcore Spirit Pro Bluetooth earbuds at just $22 ($17 off) at Amazon.
True wireless buds have definitely become the trend. Sadly, they're not as affordable as traditional bluetooth headphones, but Anker's Liberty Air 2 earbuds are now down to just $80, making them more affordable than their traditional $100 price point.
Bluetooth headphones are a dime a dozen, but good headphones — especially good true wireless headphones — are anything but cheap. OnePlus used to be known for its "flagship-killer" mantra, and now the company is bringing the same approach to Bluetooth headphones with its new OnePlus Buds. For just $80, you can get a good-sounding and very comfortable pair of truly wireless earbuds (or, more honestly speaking, AirPods clones), and they're easy to recommend.
As the true wireless earbud market has matured, we've reached a point where we now have a lot of good quality options even at lower price points — they're no longer just an expensive toy for early adopters. Anyone can pick up an affordable pair of TWEs these days and expect half-decent sound quality as well as a few useful extra features. We've reviewed quite a few of these over the years and are therefore able to help you decide which pair is right for you. These are our favorite options in the 'less than $50' and 'less than $100' price brackets.
