Looking for a pair of high-quality noise canceling earbuds that don’t cost a fortune? If so, you’ll definitely want to check out today’s deal on Amazon’s second-generation Echo Buds. Now, Amazon takes a whopping 59 percent discount, sells its popular wireless earbuds with a wired charging case for just $49.99 instead of $119.99. Those that include a wireless charging case cost $139.99. (If you really want the wireless charging case, buy separately costs $69.99

That’s a new low for a pair of Bluetooth earbuds that offer very good sound quality for the price, along with an excellent passthrough mode that lets you hear your surroundings. Their noise-cancelling technology may not be as good as the more expensive AirPods Pros or the Bose QuietComfort earbuds, but we still found it effective (it’s a great perk at this price). Plus, the earbuds are IPX4 water and sweat resistant, and they support hands-free Alexa, so you can quickly perform a range of voice-activated tasks without your phone. Read our review

LG has just launched its new C2 OLED range, at least in most configurations, meaning we’re starting to see some record lows over its future predecessor from last year. For example, right now Woot is taking a whopping $850 from LG’s 65-inch C1 OLED, sell for $1,649.99 instead of $2,499.99† This setup hasn’t fallen below $1,746.99 so far, so this is an all-time low, beating the discounted price we saw during Black Friday.

LG’s new 2022 OLED TVs may offer brighter “Evo” displays, built-in speakers that LG says sound better, and improved tone mapping, but LG’s C1 still shares many features with its next-gen counterpart. This includes a fast 120Hz refresh rate, Dolby Vision compatibility and support for HDMI 2.1, making them perfect for next-gen consoles like the Xbox Series X and the PlayStation 5. Both models also support FreeSync and G-Sync adaptive sync technologies — allowing you can enjoy high frame rates without screen tearing on PC or Xbox – and both offer a “Game Optimizer” dashboard that allows you to adjust settings for specific game genres.

If you have the money, it may be time to upgrade your TV. LG’s C1 OLED is a great gaming TV with support for Nvidia G-Sync and AMD FreeSync technologies, along with a 120Hz refresh rate, low input lag, and a fast processor. It also features a “Game Optimizer” dashboard, a settings panel that conveniently brings together game-oriented settings such as refresh rate and latency for faster access.

One of the best wireless Nintendo Switch controllers money can buy, the 8BitDo Pro 2 is an even better buy today now that it has hit a historically low price. Normally $49.99, Amazon is currently selling the gray model for $42.50† If you’re new to it, the 8BitDo Pro 2 is similar to the more expensive Nintendo Switch Pro Controller and comes with handles, customizable back buttons, and Bluetooth support so you can connect it to your PC, Mac, or mobile device. While it lacks the HD rumble and Amiibo support of the Nintendo Switch Pro Controller (and the left analog stick and d-pad have interchangeable places), it’s also rechargeable via USB-C.

The 8BitDo Pro 2 offers many of the same features as the Nintendo Pro Controller, but at a lower price. It features additional triggers, handles, reassignable buttons and back paddles and can be paired with Windows, macOS and mobile devices via Bluetooth.

Apple’s latest-generation iPad Air is more affordable than ever now that Apple’s fifth-generation iPad Air is officially available. Typically $599.99, Amazon currently sells the 64GB Wi-Fi model for $469.99 in space gray and vegetable, a new low you’ll see at checkout. Although it launched in 2020, the fourth-generation iPad Air’s A14 Bionic chip is still fast and the tablet has an excellent display. While they share a similar iPad Pro-esque design, the latest-generation model isn’t as powerful as the newer iPad Air – which features Apple’s M1 processor – nor does it offer 5G support. That said, it’s still a good buy if you want something with a little more bells and whistles than the entry-level iPad, but don’t want to spend $599 for the new iPad Air. Read our review

Speaking of affordable alternatives, if LG’s lofty C1 OLED is out of your budget, Hisense’s 55-inch U6G ULED TV retails for around $448 at Amazon and Best Buy† That’s a discount of about $200 and a new low on the 4K TV, which includes support for Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10 Plus and Google Assistant. You don’t need any additional streaming hardware either, as this TV offers instant access to YouTube, Disney Plus, and all the other major streaming apps.
