Samsung is bad at keeping secrets when it comes to its unreleased products. In the case of the upcoming Galaxy S21 family, we've pretty much already seen or read every detail about the smartphones before their rumored mid-January launch. Today, we're learning more about the Galaxy Buds Pro wireless earbuds that will be launching alongside the Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+ and Galaxy S21 Ultra. This time around, the new Galaxy Buds Pro details come courtesy of the Galaxy Wearable app, which made an early appearance in the official Galaxy Store. The app includes renders of the Galaxy Buds Pro, confirming the previous color options that we’ve reported on: black, violet, and silver.  The... Read more...
We're back to take another stab at hot deals for the holiday season. Like yesterday's roundup, we're audio-heavy today with some great discounts on the Apple AirPods Pro and the Sennheiser Momentum 3 wireless headphones, plus a few extras. First up is are the AirPods Pro, which for a long time were hard to find, even at their $259 MSRP. But as production has ramped up and the wireless earbuds are starting to get more competition, the discounts have started piling up. Thankfully, Woot has among the cheapest prices that we've seen for the AirPods Pro since Black Friday at $189.99. For that price, you get excellent active noise cancellation, newly enabled spatial audio support, and a wireless... Read more...
Now that you are stuffed with turkey and all the fixings, it is time to pivot into shedding whatever extra padding you might have accumulated over Thanksgiving (or maybe that's just me). A great place to start is with a good set of earbuds. To that end, I can personally recommend Apple's AirPods Pro, which are both excellent and deeply discounted right now. You can score the AirPods Pro for $169.99 at Amazon, which amounts to a sizeable $79.01 discount (32 percent) over the list price. This Black Friday bargain beats the previous low price, when these earbuds were marked down to $194 earlier this month. At $169.99, this is lowest price they have ever been, and are worth every penny. The big upgrade... Read more...
Walmart has already posted its Black Friday ad, although the discounts won't go live until next Wednesday (11/25) starting at 7pm ET. Not surprisingly, Walmart has quite a few deals on hand that should be enticing for enthusiasts, including deals on popular items like Apple's AirPods Pro and the Apple Watch Series 3 (which is still surprisingly sticking around after all these years). The retailer will also have the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 in stock (at MSRP, of course), so you'll want to keep an eye on those as well. With that being said, here are some of the hot deals that we've scoped out for you that you'll want to keep on your radar screen next week. Apple Watch Series 3 The Apple... Read more...
The deals are starting to pour in even though Black Friday is still 12 days in the distance. But as we have seen over the last few years, retailers are pushing out bargains increasingly earlier to get a jump on what has become a sales season, and no longer just a weekend spanning Black Friday through Cyber Monday. Amazon in particular has been an active participant, and if you are in the market for a wearable like an Apple Watch SE (shown above) or Fitbit, you are in luck. The recently announced Apple Watch SE is on sale for $289 at Amazon (down from $309) for the 44mm version, and $229.99 (down from $279) for the 40m version. Apple designed the SE model as a more affordable alternative to the... Read more...
Strap yourself in and get ready for a whirlwind of sales, folks, because we are more than a week into November and barreling towards Black Friday and Cyber Monday. That is when things will get especially frenzied. However, the closer we get to Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the more we are seeing early bargains, like the roundup of discounted big screen TVs we highlighted yesterday. And today? You can snag a set of Apple AirPods Pro earbuds for less than $200. These were a good deal when they fell to $200, and now they are even better buy at $194 on Amazon (save 22 percent). These ship from and are sold by Amazon, rather than a marketplace seller, and you get free one-day shipping if you are... Read more...
We've been hearing quite a bit about next-generation AirPods for the past few months, and the iPhone 12 event came and went with no mention of the wireless headphones. This was definitely disappointing for some, but a new report from Bloomberg suggests that they are still on the way and will arrive just a little later than previously thought. According to Mark Gurman, Apple is working on third-generation AirPods, which are expected to adopt a similar design to the current-generation AirPods Pro. This means that the cylindrical "stems" that attach to the actual "buds" will be smaller this time around and battery life will be boosted compared to the current models. They'll also be equipped...

If you're looking for a large amount of relatively fast SSD storage without spending too much money, we've got a great deal to start off your Monday morning. Amazon is currently offering the Samsung SSD 870 in a 2TB capacity for just $199.99, which represents a 20 percent discount ($50 off) compared its regular price. We reviewed this same SSD back in June and came away impressed with its performance compared to its rivals, along with the reputation that comes with the Samsung name. At this new, lower price, the 2TB 870 QVO is now an even better value that makes it an even more attractive option for enthusiasts that might want to use it as a secondary drive. The 870 QVO uses the SATA... Read more...
There have been rumors for months that Apple is set to launch premium over-the-ear headphones this year called the AirPods Studio. Although we haven't heard much by way of specifications for the AirPods Studio since then, the rumors have yet to slow down. Today, leaker Jon Prosser is throwing more fuel on the fire with both conceptual renders of the AirPods Studio and some alleged features. Although we can't say for sure if the AirPods Studio will end up looking like these renders, this is the closest approximation based on Prosser's sources. We see rounded, rectangular ear cups that are supposedly constructed of metal, along with high-quality leather for the headband. The AirPods Studio,... Read more...
If you missed out on the late-July hot deal that saw Apple’s poplar AirPods Pro Bluetooth wireless earbuds fall to an all-time low of $199, then you’re in luck. U.S. retailer Staples is once again dishing out a 20 percent discount on the AirPods Pro between now and September 19th. The AirPods Pro have a retail price of $249, and they can be regularly had at Amazon for $229 or $219 on sale. However, it’s rare for them to fall this low, and we’re not quite sure why only Staples seems to be willing to dip below the $200 price point (not that we’re complaining). With that being said, Staples gives you the option to purchase the AirPods Pro with... Read more...
If you’re in the market for a set of Apple AirPods Pro, Staples has the best deal that we’ve seen to-date on the wireless earbuds. The AirPods Pro typically retail for $249, but most retailers often have them on sale for $229, with some limited-time promotions at $219. However, Staples' deal this week sees the AirPods Pro fall to an all-time low of $199. The promotion is listed in the retailer’s weekly sales flyer (which you can view here), and is available both in-store and online, and Staples is limiting the promo to two per customer to fend off scalpers. The promotion runs from today through August 1st. Apple AirPods Pro $199.99 @ Staples (Save $50) Compared... Read more...
Sometimes you just need to drown out the world around you and groove to your favorite tunes, whether your preference falls on the heavy metal side of the spectrum or lands in classical territory (or somewhere in between). Apple's AirPods Pro earbuds help you do that with noise cancelling technology that works well. The caveat is they are pricey, though you can snag a set at a discounted price right now. Over at Verizon, you can buy the AirPods Pro for $219.99 today, with free shipping or in-store pickup (you do not need to be a Verizon subscriber, this deal is open to everyone in the US). Even the same-day delivery option is free, provided you live in an area where that is available (my current... Read more...
It's no secret that Apple's new iPhone 12 family is roughly four months away from its big unveil, and we've heard plenty of news regarding the specifications for the 2020 smartphone lineup. However, a new report is giving some details on what to expect inside the retail box with the iPhone 12; or rather, what's not going to be in the box. Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo is indicating that Apple is looking to remove an accessory that has been included in the box with every new iPhone purchase: EarPods. EarPods are Apple's "value-added" wired headphones that plug into the Lightning port on the bottom of all iPhones. They aren't the greatest-sounding earbuds on the planet, but they... Read more...
Apple definitely had a hit on its hands when it launched the original AirPods alongside the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus back in 2016. The now iconic earbuds have become fashionable for iPhone users, and were slightly updated with a second-generation release, and improved even further with the AirPods Pro. Now, it looks like Apple is looking to bring that same experience with AirPods Studio. Rather than taking on an in-ear "buds" form-factor, the AirPods Studio will be over-the-ear cans like Apple's popular Beats-branded headphones. According to previously leaked glyphs in the iOS 14 beta, the AirPods Studio will be available in both black and white, unlike the AirPods/AirPods Pro which are only... Read more...
Qualcomm may be well-known for its powerful Snapdragon SoCs and 4G LTE/5G modems that power modern Android smartphones, but the company has a vast portfolio of other communications/audio/computing products as well. Qualcomm is a relatively big name in the audio market where it produces Bluetooth SoCs that power your wireless headsets. The company this week announced new entry- and premium tier QCC304x and QCC514x chips that promise to boost runtimes for wireless earbuds while bringing Active Noise Cancelling to lower price points. The primary difference between the two is that the QCC514x supports “always-on” voice recognition. In other words, you would be able to yell out... Read more...
No sane person would yank $249 out of their wallet or purse and proceed to flush it straight down the toilet, but if something were to happen to your Apple AirPods Pro earbuds beyond the warranty period, well, the outcome will be the same—you'll be out a big wad of cash. This unfortunate reality is highlighted in a teardown of the fancy new earphones. Apple on Monday formally introduced the AirPods Pro, and they are the company's first branded wireless earbuds with active noise cancelling technology baked inside. They come with three different ear tip sizes to help find a good fit, and they are made of silicone to help create a tighter seal, keeping external noise out of your ear holes.... Read more...
It looks as though all the leaks and rumors were spot-on with Apple's next-generation earbuds. Today, without any fanfare, Apple announced the AirPods Pro, which are the company's first branded wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation technology. The design of the AirPods Pro mirror that of the glyph that was leaked in the iOS 13.2 developer beta, and include silicone ear tips that help improve the notoriously finicky fit of the first- and second-generation AirPods. Three different ear tip sizes are included in the box so that you can find the perfect fit for the contours of your ears. The ear tips also help to create a tighter seal to work in conjunction with the active... Read more...
Earlier this month, we got an early look at Apple's third-generation AirPods thanks to a glyph leak in iOS 13.2 developer beta code. Now, a new report coming out of China suggests that these new, even more premium AirPods will actually make their debut later this month. According to the report from the China Economic Daily, the earbuds will reportedly be called AirPods Pro. The publication goes on to add that the AirPods Pro will feature a metal design that is designed to better wick away heat. The earlier glyph that we saw of the AirPods Pro suggest that they will have rubber tips that will fit into your ear, hopefully correcting the iffy fit (for some people) while aiding in noise...
