Like it or hate it, more and more phones are dropping the headphone jack, which means Bluetooth headphones are changing from an optional benefit to a definite requirement as time goes on. For those looking to pick up a pair, Bose's SoundSport Free were one of Android Police's favorite "truly" wireless earbuds late last year, and now you can grab your own for just $199, a savings of $50.

Bose's beloved QuietComfort 35 may already have a successor, the QuietComfort 35 II, but the company has still been selling the wired QC25 for quite some time. At $279, it appeals to a slightly different market than the $349 QC35 (II). But for the impending Black Friday deals, the company has dropped prices by $100 to just $179 at quite a few retailers.

You might recall the Polk MagniFi Mini from Rita's recent review of it, in which she ranted and raved about it and its lack of any real flaws. At its $299 MSRP, this little soundbar is already a pretty decent deal, but Adorama has decided to go ahead and take a whopping $120 off, making the MagniFi Mini just $179.99 with a code. That's crazy. 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
Android tablets don't seem to be in high demand since the default size for flagship phones has shifted to "frickin huge," but for those who still want one, there are deals to be had right now. Adorama, a well-known US electronics retailer, is selling the latest Samsung flagship tablet for a significant discount on eBay. The 9.7-inch version of the Galaxy Tab S2, which has a retail price of $500, is just $359 on eBay right now. Both the black and white models are available, and if you live in the lower 48, you get free shipping as well.
Unfortunately, would-be buyers in Alaska and Hawaii are out of luck, as is anyone outside of Canada, Australia, and "Europe." Europe is in quotes there because the list of excluded countries also includes most of continental Europe from Ukraine all the way to Portugal - apparently Adorama thinks that Europe consists of Germany, the UK, and Ireland, and not much else.

Android Wear is not everyone's thing. I splurged for a Huawei Watch with a mesh link earlier today when Amazon's $100 discount kicked off, but you may not like the look of the Hwatch or the way Android Wear works. Or you might be invested in Samsung's ecosystem and have more faith in the way they handle their wearable's platform. After all, it's your wrist, you can wear whatever you want on it.
In that case, you might want to head to Adorama today. I know, I know, it's not Amazon, and you'll have to create an account if you never shopped there, and do all of that unnecessary work while you're still under the influence of a glucose coma from your meal, but it might be worth the effort of working a few more minutes.

Among our favorite wired headphone brands, Audio Technica sits conveniently toward the top of the list, and we're not alone in thinking that. Amazon customers and people who know more about sound and audio signatures than me like and recommend them as well. If you've been wanting to grab a pair for a while or you just want to supplement your headphone collection with a relatively cheap but good addition, today's your day.
Amazon has the Audio Technica ATH-M40X at an all-time low. According to Camelx3, these usually retail around the $99 mark, and very rarely dip below the $80 line. At $67, they might be getting close to impulse-buy territory, especially since they're almost as cheap as the M30X (which are around $54 now). Read More
The Nexus Player was never really the best set-top box, and thanks to the NVIDIA SHIELD, it's not the best thing running Android TV either. Fortunately you can get one for cheap. Best Buy is selling the thing for half of what you would pay on the Google Store. Yup, only $50. Read More
If you want a powerful, high-resolution tablet from a reputable manufacturer, you're going to have to pay for it. If you'd like to pay considerably less, you should check out the current Adorama listing for ASUS' flagship Transformer Pad. The Infinity TF701T is on sale for $349.99, a full $100 off of the retail price. It's also $50 below Amazon's price.
The TF701T is the latest and greatest tablet in the line, combining a speedy Tegra 4 processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 2560x1600 resolution to make a compellingly capable tablet. Adorama doesn't have a sale price on the sold-separately keyboard + battery dock that gives the Transformer line its name, but they do have it for $134.99 ($15 off retail). Read More
Need more proof that a Nexus 7 refresh is on its way? The deals are just flowing in. Adorama has knocked $50 off the price of a new 32 GB Nexus 7, bringing the beefier version of the tablet down to just $199. This price is part of a special email promotion, and it's quite lower than the $230 price point the tablet currently goes for at the site. The Nexus 7 may no longer be the peppy little device it used to be, but it's still a good deal for the money.
If you're willing to forgo a new device for a lower price, a refurbished 32GB Nexus 7 is available on eBay for $20 less. Read More
