Forget AirPods: Sony true wireless earbuds down to just $80 for Prime Day

Prime Day is fast approaching, but those who are planning to buy wireless earbuds can already take advantage of early Prime Day deals such as the offer for the Sony WF-XB700. These true wireless earbuds are already a steal at their original price of $130, but with a $50 discount that takes them to their lowest-ever price of $80, the Sony WF-XB700 are already among the best Prime Day headphone deals this year.

Apple’s AirPods may have popularized wireless earbuds, but some accessories such as the Sony WF-XB700 have proven themselves worthy alternatives in terms of both features and value.

Each earbud is equipped with a button that either adjusts the volume or controls playback, so you don’t have to reach for your phone to issue these commands.  The Sony WF-XB700 also carry an IPX4 rating for water resistance, which means that they have adequate protection against splashes of water and sweat, making them ideal for workouts and runs.

Like most wireless earbuds, the Sony WF-XB700 come in a protective charging case. The buds promise up to 9 hours of battery life, and up to 18 hours including the juice from its charging case, so your music should flow uninterrupted by depleted batteries throughout the day.

The wireless earbuds are designed with what Sony calls an Ergonomic Tri-hold structure, which ensures a secure and comfortable fit by making contact with three different points on your ear. The Sony WF-XB700, however, are relatively bulky compared to other options in the market. Meanwhile, the Extra Bass brand on the wireless earbuds brings out powerful low-end sound, but as expected at this budget price, the Sony WF-XB700 fail to match the audio quality of much more expensive high-end headphones.

With all of these features, the Sony WF-XB700 are a fine alternative to Apple’s AirPods, and you can grab them at their lowest-ever price through an early Prime Day deal now available on Amazon. From $130 originally, the wireless earbuds are being offered with a $50 discount to bring the price down to $80 –a deal that you should grab right away as there is no telling how long it will last.

We gave these earbuds a 9/10, but at their Prime Day price, they’re an 11/10
Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro.

What I love about Prime Day is that, if you look closely, you can find huge discounts on products that are already so good, they don't need any discount at all. A perfect example is Soundcore's Liberty 3 Pro wireless earbuds. When they debuted at $170, I thought they were so good, I gave them a 9/10 rating in my review, and issued them Digital Trends' Editor's Choice award. But these ratings and awards are always a balancing act between price and performance, so now that these buds are 47% off for Prime Day, and selling for just $90? I'm going to 11.

My enthusiasm for this deal really is all about price. When you review as many wireless earbuds as I do, you quickly get a sense of what you can expect from different models at different prices, and your senses start to tingle when a product exceeds those expectations. If you read my in-depth review of the Liberty 3 Pro, you'll see they had already managed to do that at $170. With an absolutely killer feature set that includes wireless charging, active noise cancellation (ANC), transparency, EQ and control customization, hi-res audio support, Bluetooth Multipoint, and wear sensors for music auto-pause, they provide more sheer technical prowess than some earbuds that cost twice as much.

Why you should buy the Sony A80J OLED TV
This 55-inch Sony OLED TV Prime Day deal is one of the better Prime Day TV deals we've seen so far, considering that televisions sporting this panel technology do not come cheap. OLED is short for organic light-emitting diode and is a very distinct type of screen from traditional LED panels. Instead of backlighting, an OLED TV uses tiny individual particles that light up completely separately from one another. This allows parts of the screen to be completely off while the TV is on, creating the deepest contrast you'll find on a modern TV.
