Samsung is harnessing its acquisition of audio company Harman to full effect with a number of AKG integrations into its own-brand product launches. In fact, you might recall that when Samsung came out with its latest wireless earbuds, the Galaxy Buds, AKG had a hand in tuning the sound. Now, thanks to an asset trawl into one of Samsung's apps, we have suspicions that AKG will go all-in with a pair of wireless earbuds to its name alongside a couple of other headphones in the near future.

Grab a pair of Jabra Elite 85h noise-cancelling headphones for $250 ($50 off)

In the arena of active noise-canceling wireless headphones, you're pretty much spoiled for choice. Bose and Sony lead the pack, especially in the upper tier, but there are great options from longtime players JBL, Sennheiser, and others. And yet, there's also room for newcomers in this space like Microsoft and Jabra. The latter, in particular, came into the fray this year with its Elite 85h, a clear shot at the big guns with an undercutting price point of $300. But for the next few days, you can grab a pair at Best Buy on a good discount.

Before Shazam or SoundHound existed, I remember searching for a year or even more before I found the name of a few songs I heard a couple of times on the radio. Now it's as easy as tapping a button and getting the result.

The sports-friendly Plantronics BackBeat Fit 2100 fall to a new low of $60 on Amazon

If you work out a lot like I do, you know how important it is to have the right headphones during your session. I've learned that the hard way: Five years ago when I started lifting, I would use the cheap earphones that came with my handset, but I quickly gave up because the wires would get caught in different things or an earpiece would fail in the middle of a workout. They eventually drowned in my sweat and died, so I decided to get a pair of wireless earphones especially designed for athletes that cost me about $180 back then.
