Highly rated 55", 65", and 75" Sony Android TVs currently on sale for up to $800 off

When it comes to high-end televisions, Sony arguably rules the roost — the Android TV-running X950G lineup is a popular choice amongst average and expert consumers alike. If you've had your eye out for a Sony 4K TV, two models of the 2019 lineup are currently on sale — the 55" and 65" variants of the X950G, and the 75" variant of the X900F.

Sony’s $250 Extra Bass headphones can’t compete with the 1000XM3 — even on price

Most ANC headphones on the market, Sony's own WH-1000XM3 included, are fairly neutral-sounding. But given how popular Beats headphones are, it was only a matter of time before a bass-focused ANC offering popped up in the market. The WH-XB900N Extra Bass caters to that specific audience, and at $250, it undercuts the 1000XM3's MSRP by $100.

However, the XB900N feels like it's lost a lot more than that $100 in value when compared to the 1000XM3. It's worse in every measurable metric, and not just by a little. Consider the recent discounts that have brought the 1000XM3 to sub-$250 prices, and you can quickly see that it doesn't make much sense to recommend the XB900N at all.

The Xperia 1 is Sony's best phone yet, but it struggles to justify the exorbitant price

Sony used to be one of the most successful mobile companies in the world, but it never really got into a groove as modern smartphones took over the market. Sony has been on a slow downward slide for the last decade thanks to a string of mediocre, overpriced devices and failing relations with carriers. There have been some bright spots along the way, though, and Sony has been focusing on the hardware more in recent years. Last year's Xperia XZ3 was an encouraging improvement, and the new Xperia 1 is better still. However, it's just not good enough.

Sony is launching a pair of high-end, noise-cancelling true wireless earbuds for $230

When it comes to over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation, Sony's WH-1000XM3 are probably the best in class, but the Japanese tech giant hasn't yet wowed us with an equally impressive pair of true wireless earbuds. That could be set to change, however, with the introduction of the (also obtusely named) WF-1000XM3, coming next month for $230/£220/€250.

Amazon brings Alexa integration to Android TV starting with Sony Bravias

Hell officially froze over when Google and Amazon decided to bury their squabbles and stop locking each other out of their respective TV ecosystems. Of course, Amazon apps have been available on Android for a long time, and the company would've shot itself in the foot if it didn't distribute its content and store to the biggest mobile OS in the world. However, TVs have always been a sensitive topic for Amazon and Google, as they're both directly competing with their Chromecast and Fire TV. Shortly after their truce, Amazon announced in April that it's bringing Alexa integration to Sony TVs powered by Android.

We recently covered a couple of 4K Android TVs from Sony's X900F series that went on sale and there was a good chonk to save there.

Sony Xperia XZ3 drops to $487 ($113 off) on Amazon

Sony's mobile division is a major money drain, having lost the company a billion dollars last year. Part of that can be attributed to pricing; for instance, it's hard to justify an Xperia XZ3 at its $799.99 MSRP when there are so many good offerings at that number. However, the XZ3 is now $487.27 on Amazon, making it a lot more appealing.
