Last month, Xiaomi took the stage in an online-only event to show off a slew of products, including its Redmi 9 phone series and its new true wireless earbuds. Among them was also the hotly anticipated and often-leaked Mi TV Stick, which the company has now finally released in India, where it will become available for purchase starting August 7.
There's a lot of hype around the AirPods, but if you're the kind of person that isn't into sticking toothbrush heads into their ear, there are more discreet options on the market. One of them is the Anker's Soundcore Liberty Neo, which is more compact, but also a lot more affordable, especially now that they're down to $45.
True wireless earbuds are increasingly popular today, especially after Apple released their AirPods. Nevertheless, traditional Bluetooth earphones are still very convenient, especially if you work out in a gym and don't risk them getting caught into something while you run. Thanks to this offer, you'll be able to pay almost half the MSRP for these Aukey B80 earphones, bringing them down to just $44.
The fine folks over at 9to5Google are reporting that the Pixel Buds have gained a feature that allows for spoken notifications to be toggled on or off on a per-app basis. Spoken notifications could already be broadly enabled or disabled, but previously, it'd been a one-size-fits-all situation.
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 Jaybird X2 Bluetooth earphones are a great piece of kit. I don't know this firsthand. Artem loves them, I know that. And when they drop below $130 dollars, well, Jeff considers that dang near impulse buy territory. The two of us have different gauges for how cheap a pair of earphones needs to be to qualify as an impulse buy, but in case you agree with Jeff, the Jaybird X2 has again dipped in price on Amazon.
