We’re observing the first price reductions on Amazon’s recently released Fire TV Soundbar and Meross’ smart plug, which is compatible with Matter.
Finding tranquility can be a challenge, especially if you’re a parent, a frequent traveler, or enduring seemingly endless construction noise – and I can relate to that. Fortunately, Sony’s WH-1000XM5 headphones are now available at discounted prices on Amazon, Best Buy, and Target, with savings of up to $73, bringing them to their lowest price ever, starting at just $328.
Sony’s XM5 Noise Canceling Headphones
Sony’s flagship headphones have consistently delivered top-tier sound quality in over-ear headphones for over six years, starting with the 1000X series. While competition has grown fiercer during this time, as seen with the recent release of the Bose QuietComfort Ultra, the latest version maintains its position as the best choice with outstanding active noise cancellation and a clear, natural sound profile. The XM5s also come with a compelling set of features for their price, including support for multipoint Bluetooth connections and an enhanced, comfortable design. These qualities have allowed them to retain their title as the best noise-canceling headphones available for purchase.
Sony WH-1000XM5 – A Feature-Rich Headphone Experience
Sony’s WH-1000XM5 headphones provide an attractive blend of features at their price point, offering enhanced comfort, improved sound quality, and even more effective active noise cancellation.
At the beginning of this year, Amazon introduced a range of new smart home gadgets, such as the Stick Up Cam Pro, a smart home controller, and a 24-inch soundbar called the Amazon Fire TV Soundbar. While discounts are not yet available for most of the first two devices, the soundbar is already being offered at a reduced price of $99.99 on Amazon, which is $20 off. This deal coincides with the approach of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, and several Echo devices are also part of the sale.
While we haven’t had the opportunity to thoroughly test Amazon’s 24-inch soundbar yet – as we’ve only had a brief press demo, it appears to be a straightforward solution for those looking to upgrade from their TV’s built-in speakers. Although it may not deliver the most pristine audio quality, it provides ample volume and works seamlessly with Amazon’s existing streaming devices and Fire TV-branded televisions. This simplifies the setup process, especially for those already integrated into the Amazon ecosystem. Additionally, it comes with Bluetooth support and is compatible with both ARC and eARC, as well as Dolby Audio, placing it on par with other soundbars in its price range.
