[Update: Google Store too] Deal alert: Pixel Buds down to $129 ($30 off) at Best Buy

The Pixel Buds were announced alongside the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in October of last year, and since then, we've rarely seen them discounted.

SōLIS SO-7000 review: One of the best Chromecast speakers around

A few months ago, I took a look at both of SōLIS' entry-level Chromecast speakers, the SO-3000 and SO-6000, which impressed me with their sound quality and designs; they featured Cast, Bluetooth, and line-in support. But pricing felt a little steep, especially for the SO-6000.

This time around, I took a look at the next step up in SōLIS' product line: the SO-7000. This cube has all of the benefits of its cousins, but it packs more of a punch, especially with the bass.

Despite a weird bug and a tendency to go into a deep sleep, the SO-7000 is definitely one of the best Chromecast speakers you can buy right now.

In 2016, we called the JBL Everest Elite 700s' $300 MSRP "a decent price point." Then, in February of this year, refurbished models were going for $120 on Woot. That was a good deal. Now they're $69.99 on Woot, which is a heck of a deal.

Wicked Audio Shred Wireless review: So close to being great

Fitness-focused audio is a very saturated market, filled with options both good and bad. Wicked Audio, a manufacturer that focuses on providing good style and bang for your buck, recently sent me the Shred Wireless to try out. This pair of neckband earbuds packs quite a decent punch, especially for the price. The magnetic, metal housing on the buds themselves is nice, too.

The first time Samsung took a swing at completely wireless earbuds, the results weren't great. However, the 2018 revision of the Gear IconX was much better. These earbuds have better battery life, an improved charging case, and they're super-compact. The MSRP is just a bit high. The price has been coming down on Amazon lately, and even lower than usual right now. You can pick up the black IconX earbuds for $149.89.
