Given the recent rise of truly wireless earbuds, we're starting to see some quality sales on the previous generation of tethered Bluetooth earbuds. Today, we have a deal from Jaybird (a headphone maker known for their fitness-focused lineup) on their X4 wireless earbuds, which are marked down to $70 on Amazon— their lowest price yet. It looks like the X4s have been available for around $110 for most of the year, and this latest reduction could save you an additional $40. Read More
Jaybird is pretty much athletic earbud royalty, and that reputation can come at a premium. The Jaybird X4 are, in my opinion, the most comfortable earbuds the company makes, and you can get 'em at an uncommon discount today: the buds are $30 off pretty much everywhere you can find them.
We see too many good deals to let you know about them all in real time, so in posts like these, we round up the ones that slipped through the cracks. Over the past few days, we've seen a lot of solid deals that didn't get their own posts, from budget phones and tablets to assorted smart home gadgets. Read More
A confession: I gave up on my previous pair of Bluetooth earbuds, Jaybird's own X2, after about a year.

Once I got a Pixel 2, I was living the dongle life.
After spending a week with the Jaybird X4, though, I'm reminded of what I was missing. By virtue of being wireless, they're miles ahead of any wired earbuds for exercising — they don't catch on gym equipment and pop out. Read More
