Apple AirPods 2 — $79, was $159

Starting off our Cyber Monday deals, we have a somewhat older version of the standard AirPods, the AirPods 2. Yet, the older model is still quite capable of doing most of the wonderful things we expect from any pair of AirPods of any generation. They still have over 24 hours of battery life when you include the charging case, still remain easy “open case” setup, and work better with your existing Apple products than other earbuds. Our AirPods 2 review highlights just how great the newly introduced H1 chip was for the AirPods 2, allowing voice-activated “Hey Siri” and calling in environments with ambient noise. While they’re half off as part of Cyber Monday AirPods deals, be sure to give them a try!

Apple AirPods 3 — $160, was $170

Getting more modern, the AirPods 3 are one of our favorite Cyber Monday AirPods deals that you won’t want to miss. The very latest in standard AirPods, you can expect a longer battery life (30 hours with case), lightning or MagSafe charging, and other modern conveniences that you expect from today’s Apple products. Where the AirPods 3 really shine are in the features that edge the AirPods 3 toward “Pro” status without increasing the price. For example, take advantage of spatial audio with tracks in Apple Music and subtly change the way music plays based on your head movements. Suddenly, it can feel like you’re really next to your favorite musician. Or, enjoy them on a run without fearing for their safety due to their better, more sweat resistant body. Get the “almost pro” without the price experience today!

Apple AirPods Pro 2 — $200, was $249

Is that the latest AirPods Pro version on sale? Yes, it is! The AirPods Pro 2 are already hitting the shelves with a massive discount and it is quite exciting. Overall, the experience is comfortably familiar if you’re a fan of the original AirPods Pro, except everything is tuned up to 11. You’ve got doubled the active noise cancellation (ANC) level, 33% more battery life, and even more silicone tips to fit your ear most comfortably. Our AirPods Pro 2 review called them “a total no-brainer” for Apple fans and — with their wonderful integration with the Apple ecosystem — it is easy to see why. When using the AirPods Pro 2 with an iOS device, you get spatial audio, a hands-free assistant, better codec support, and expanded settings. In other words, they’re just plain fun to use with your iPhone or iPad. We think you’ll like them even more — and have more fun — if you get them at this great sale price, so go ahead and buy now!

Apple AirPods Max — $449, was $549

Your Cyber Monday headphone deals wishes probably include something more than just earbuds, even from Apple. If that’s the case, then this is the one deal among Cyber Monday AirPods deals that you should really look over carefully. The AirPods Max are a pair of over-ear headphones that not only feel comfortable but also provide the same level of Apple integration that other Apple products provide. For example, they have the same H1 chip that you’re probably familiar with in other Apple products and can share audio between two sets of AirPods. As pointed out in our AirPods Max review, you’ll actually need to pair them with an iOS device to use features like ANC and transparency mode to their fullest, but you probably knew that anyhow. So, if you’re the iOS user that wants over-ear headphones and not earbuds, this is the deal for you to finally get what you’ve been wanting.

The Klipsch Reference Series 12 on a shelf.

To have a good home theater or audio setup, there are several components you need, including an immersive TV and a good surround sound system to pair with it. And when it comes to creating the ideal audio system, of any kind, you can't overlook a subwoofer. These units provide an extra bass hit which can make a big difference to your home theater setup when listening to music or watching movies. They allow you to feel every crash, every explosion, and the pound of every punch. When those jets fly overhead, the subwoofer will make your couch tremble as if the engines are right above your house. If you're adding one to your car, you'll feel the same but with the kicks and snare of your music. But they're not cheap, so you can pay hundreds of dollars for a good-quality subwoofer, or even more if you're looking at high-end options. It is possible to save some cash on top subwoofer brands like Klipsch and Sony by pinpointing the best subwoofer deals, and that's where we have you covered.

It does featured Bluetooth for wireless connectivity, so you can connect a phone or tablet, for example. You can also plug your TV in via HDMI ARC, optical, or 3.5 mm audio. The 35W bass woofer delivers a nice little kick.

Best OLED TV deals: Save on LG C3, Samsung S90C, and more
LG's 2023 C3 4K OLED TV.

Many of the best TVs utilize OLED picture technology, which stands for organic light-emitting diode. Each diode is individually lit, and electrified, or turned off when the scene calls for black colors. That means pitch black scenes are truly dark and not washed out because of a backlight, but so are the rest of the colors. And right now you don’t have to try very hard to find a mountain of OLED TV deals. This is great news if you’re looking to upgrade your home theater for the new year, as both QLED and OLED are the top choices when it comes to landing a TV with the best picture quality. There are substantial savings out there on OLED TV brands such as Samsung, LG, Sony, and others. We’ve tracked them all down, so if you want a TV with top picture quality and some savings, read onward for more details.
