Pick up Sony’s best noise-canceling headphones on the cheap on Prime Day

There’s never been a better time to snag a pair of wireless noise-canceling headphones. That’s because Amazon, as part of Prime Day, has knocked $50 off one of the best pairs out there — the Sony WH-1000XM3 — dropping the price to $300.

In fact, the Sony WH-1000XM3 isn’t just one of the best headphones out there; we awarded it the title of the best headphone of 2018 after it received a coveted 9 out of 10 score in our review, in which we praised its look, sound, and overall feel.

The pièce de résistance? The WH-1000XM3’s incredible noise-canceling and battery life, which blocks out sound emitted by appliances, humans, and vehicles alike (think: coffee machines, coworkers, and aircraft) for up to 30 hours on a single charge.

But what happens when someone wants to speak to you? The WH-1000XM3 has a feature for that. Just wrap your hand over the right earcup and the song you’re listening to will pause. When you remove your hand, it’ll pick up where you left off.

Sound quality is nothing short of fantastic, either, with our Senior Editor Caleb Denison noting that studio recordings sound intimate and impeccably produced, while live recordings come across wide, expansive, and highly immersive.

We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: The WH-1000XM3 is a must-have even when it isn’t on sale, so the chance to snag a pair for $50 off is the icing on the cake. Budget aside, you won’t find a better blend of performance, features, and comfort.

Don’t take it from us, though — here’s what one customer had to say about them:

As someone who owns Bose noise cancelling headphones, these new headphones have blown me away. The noise cancelling is a noticeable step up from the QC 35. It’s light (a tad heavier than the Bose), comfortable (I usually can’t stand having most headphones on for a long time as my ears tend to get sore – no issues 3 hours in with this pair), and have a sound quality that blows the Bose or any other noise cancelling headphones I’ve tried out of the water.

If the Sony WH-1000XM3 isn’t quite right for you and you’d rather something a little cheaper, or an in-ear alternative like the Apple AirPods, be sure to take a look at our catalog of the best headphone deals available this Amazon Prime Day.

Those in the market for something a little different, like a 4K TV, a MacBook, or maybe even a smartwatch, ought to check out our list of the best Prime Day sales. We’ll be updating it right through the end of Prime Day, so it’s worth a bookmark.

Audio-Technica has three of its best turntables on sale for Prime Day
The Audio Technica AT-LP120XUSB turntable.

More than a decade ago, my first ever turntable was the Audio-Technica AT-LP120, a beast of a direct-drive machine that starts and stops on a dime, is stable as all hell, and couldn't be easier to use. I still have it, and while I've added several other types and grades of turntables over the years, it's still in regular, er, rotation in my setup.

As far as entry-to-mid-level turntables go, Audio-Technica is one of the best brands out there -- we feature several of them on our best turntables list. If you've been hemming and hawing over getting a new turntable to kick off your vinyl obsession, or maybe you're looking to upgrade your starter deck, now's your chance to get your hands on one of three of Audio Technica's most popular turntables for up to 29% off as part of Amazon Prime Day: the entry-level AT-LP60X, it's Bluetooth-enabled sibling the AT-LP60XBT, and the AT-LP120XUSB, a newer, USB-capable version of my trusty old tank that I mentioned above.

N8 PRO+ lifestyle image with child nearby

This content was produced in partnership with ECOVACS
Amazon's Prime Day is back, and its own tech, devices, and gear aren't the only things worth shopping during the big event. This year there's a definite focus on more practical items, like cleaning supplies, food, and other items you might need -- but can get at an excellent discount -- as opposed to electronics like TVs, game consoles, tablets, and beyond. But one tech item that should be in every home is a smart cleaning solution, or rather a smart vacuum and mop combo, precisely like what ECOVACS offers. Each model is different, but for the most part they offer hands-free cleaning and maintenance so you can focus on your busy life, and not have to worry about all the messes that you leave behind, that your kids might make, or that your pets might create. In the interest of brevity, we've collected all of the best ECOVACS deals that are live as part of the event, and you can peruse those below.

And just because you're sticking to a budget doesn't mean you'll sacrifice features, as this vacuum and mop combo is smart, capable, and convenient.
