When it comes to wireless earbuds, one of the most popular choices for top-shelf, in-ear sound is the Apple AirPods. And for a limited time, you’ll be able to purchase your very own pair at a discounted price. For those who follows Walmart deals like we do, you’ll know that the company’s Walmart Deals sale is going on now, and the Apple AirPods 2 is one of many items receiving a markdown. As it stands, they’re on sale for $70, but you’d normally have to pay $130 for them. A $60 price cut sounds good in our book!

Why you should buy the Apple AirPods 2 

We’ve reviewed several AirPods products over the years, and it’s tough to beat the simple connectivity and solid sound quality you’ll get from a traditional set of AirPods. When we say traditional, we’re excluding models like the AirPods Pro and AirPods Max, which are equipped with noise-canceling microphones. While you won’t find active canceling on the AirPods 2, these Apple buds deliver passive isolation, thanks to the way the buds form a seal over your inner ear.

They also sound good. Blasting through multiple music genres, you should find that the AirPods 2 bring bright and powerful audio to the table. And thanks to the inclusion of Apple’s new H1 chip, you can expect ultra-fast connections to the devices you use all the time. Whether it’s an iPhone or iPad, an Android device, or Windows hardware, the AirPods 2 pair seamlessly, and can be simultaneously connected to multiple Apple gadgets signed in with the same Apple ID.

Battery life is critical when it comes to wireless audio, and the AirPods 2 don’t disappoint: You’ll get up to five hours of playback time and three hours of talk time. The fully-charged Lightning charging case provides 16-19 additional listening hours, and just 15 minutes in the case will give each bud an extra three listening hours. 

True wireless earbud deals and headphone deals are likely to pick up as we head into Amazon Prime Day deals and the back-to-school shopping season, but you can beat the rush by purchasing the Apple AirPods 2 from Walmart right now for just $70!

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2 are over half off in early Prime Day deals
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Pro.

Have you been scouring Amazon for true wireless earbud deals? Well we found one that’s going to knock your music-listening socks off: For a limited time, you’ll be able to purchase the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2 through Amazon and save anywhere from 26% to 57% overall. Samsung doesn’t mess around when it comes to earbuds, and since the Galaxy Buds 3 and Buds Pro 3 are due to hit shelves by month’s end, there’s never been a better time to invest in Samsung audio. 

Why you should buy the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2
First and foremost, the Galaxy Buds Pro 2 are part of Samsung’s active noise canceling (ANC) lineup of wireless buds. These little guys use something called Intelligent Active Noise Cancellation to hone in on the frequencies we don’t want to hear, while enhancing others. Other brands usually call this Hybrid ANC, and it’s perfect for eliminating sounds like engine noise and HVAC systems, while amplifying close-quarters conversations.

Grab a new dorm room TV for $118 in the Walmart Deals sale
The Philips 32-inch HD TV's Roku home screen.

Best Buy is currently having a massive sales event, dubbed simply Walmart Deals. As part of the sale you can grab a 32-inch TV for just $118, $50 off its usual price. There's nothing super flashy about this TV -- the selling point is the price. Throw it in the kid's playroom, your dorm, stuff it in the motorhome or camper, do whatever you want with it because a TV isn't getting much cheaper than this. We can (and will) go on more about what this TV is good for below, but be sure to tap the button immediately below this message to check out the TV for yourself. Over 200 copies of this TV are in people's carts as this is being written, so if you wait, supplies may dwindle.

Why you should buy the Philips 32-inch HD TV
The Philips 32-inch HD TV is a small Roku TV that displays in 720p HD. It is by no means a super-powered TV, but it gets the job done. This is the TV that's a little bit grainy but actually fits in your dorm or camper, that lets you talk and chat with the lads and make memories just as much as you focus on watching it. A bit of spilled beer or, if you put this in a child's playroom, a cupcake-icing fingerprint aren't going to sour the mood or make things awkward with a TV at this price level, either. That's the real charm of this TV. It's for small places and times where the memories are worth more than the content.
