The pandemic probably broke up your usual cinema-going habits. Now could be the time to resume them … but why not improve them instead? As part of Best Buy Black Friday deals, we’ve got a home cinema projector at a big discount for you. Make your home the cinema instead when you get the Epson Home Cinema 880 for just $500, a big $100 off of the typical $600 price. But be sure to order now while the deal lasts; you can get your popcorn later.

Why you should buy the Epson Home Cinema 880

There are a lot of Black Friday TV deals going on today, and a lot of them are for really smart TVs with all of the modern features. So, why might a projector compete? Freedom. When you get a portable projector, you aren’t getting a fragile machine that’s best set up and left alone. Instead, you’re getting a tough box that you can take with you, and this is especially so with the hard plastic — but still under 6 pounds — body of the Epson Home Cinema 880. Complicated setups and plugins are out, too, with USB plug-and-play functionality and simple-to-use HDMI connection.

Coming out of high school, you might remember teachers lumbering over semi-functional projectors that popped up blurry images on the wall. The mental image of the hassle and blur might make you, rightfully, skeptical of the power of the best projectors we see today. So, right off the bat, let’s be very clear that this is a 1080p projector with 3,300 lumens of power, far stronger than the 2,500 lumens recommended in our home theater projector buying guide. To put that in perspective, it is comfortably capable of making anywhere from 33.1 inches all the way up to 320 inches of “screen.” Reduce fiddling with keystone correction that helps “rectanglefy” images, even at an angle. Sit back and enjoy yourself with remote controls. Quit worrying about lugging around speakers. The Epson Home Cinema 880 has them built in! This is a projector for the new age.

If you’re finally ready to look good (or at least a crispy 1080p) during the obligatory holiday home video-watching session, strongly consider getting the Epson Home Cinema 880 while it is only $500. That’s $100 off the typical $600 price and one of the best projector deals you’ll get this year.

Flash deal: Get $100 off the Sennheiser Momentum 4 headphones
Sennheiser Momentum Wireless 4

Sennheiser is a big name when it comes to consumer audio, and if you're looking to grab some of the best headphones on the market, then you'll want to grab a pair of Sennheiser headphones. Of course, battling it out at the top with other big names like Sony and Apple means that Sennheiser headphones can get quite expensive, so this deal on the Sennheiser Momentum 4 is perfect. As a pair of high-end headphones, they come at a premium, but Best Buy has discounted them down to $300 from the original $400, although be aware that the deal is ending today, so snap it up quickly before it expires.

Why you should buy the Sennheiser Momentum 4
While the Sennheiser Momentum 4 may not be as widely known as some other high-end headphones out there, it easily competes, if not outperforms, the likes of Sony WH-1000XM5 or even the AirPods Max when it comes to audio fidelity. That's no surprise, given that Sennheiser also makes professional audio-grade headphones for studios, and with that comes the experience of creating a clear and wide sound with an impressive bass that is expressive rather than thumping and loud. The treble is more refined and textured, while the Momentum 4 does an excellent job of making voices clear without muddling the rest of the frequencies.

The best soundbar Bose makes is $100 off right now, and a must-buy
Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar in black.

While there are a lot of big audio brands out there, Bose is one of the biggest and most well-known and makes some of the best headphones on the market right now. Bose doesn't limit itself to just headphones, though, and it's also branched out to make some of the best soundbars on the market as well. Of course, Bose's soundbars do tend to be expensive, but luckily, there's a deal from Best Buy that discounts the original $900 down to $800.

Why you should buy the Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar
While the Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar doesn't come with a subwoofer or satellite speakers, it does a good job of recreating surround sound for the whole room with just six speakers in its little frame. It comes with both Dolby Atmos and Bose TrueSpace, which help create a wider soundstage so that you can hear things with a bit more detail. In fact, it also has a fancy AI Dialogue mode, which helps adjust the audio to make the voice sound clearer, which is important given that most shows and films these days tend to lower the volume of the actors' voices.
