Some of the best wireless earbuds around in this price range, the Apple AirPods 3 are great for daily use. They offer personalized spatial audio with dynamic head tracking helping you feel more immersed in your music. Dolby Atmos support further helps and you’ll be impressed at how much better it sounds than other cheap earbuds. There’s also good battery life of up to six hours from one charge with up to 30 hours in total thanks to the charging case. The charging case is a wired one rather than wireless but that’s a small concession to make at this price. They also offer Apple features like audio sharing via different sets of AirPods, easy pairing, and Siri support.

The Beats Studio Pro might lack some key features like wear sensors and multipoint support but at this price, you’ll simply love how balanced and clear the sound is. There’s also lossless USB audio if you prefer to go wired. In all cases, head-tracked spatial audio while the headphones’s ANC ensures you can block out any unnecessary environmental noise while you listen with a transparency mode allowing you to return to the world as needed. Clear call performance is possible too thanks to voice targeting mics. Up to 40 hours of battery life with ANC off means they’ll last for your weekly commute and beyond.

Some of the best noise-canceling earbuds around, the Apple AirPods Pro 2 are a delight for Apple owners in particular. They do a great job of blocking out noise around you with up to two times better ANC than the previous model. Adaptive audio is there too, seamlessly blending ANC and Transparency modes together so you get the best listening experience. You also benefit from deeply immersive sound with a low-distortion, custom-built driver which provides crisp and clear high notes along with full bass. The earbuds top things up with personalized spatial audio and head tracking, along with Dolby Atmos support. They have six hours of battery life from one charge with a total of 30 coming from the wireless charging case.

Bose makes some of the best noise-canceling headphones around with the Bose QuietComfort 45 also proving incredibly comfy. TriPort acoustic architecture means you get deeper and fuller ear cups without feeling like you’re wearing something bulky. When listening, you can use the adjustable EQ to get things just how you like them while there’s a choice of full ANC or an aware mode for bringing the outside world in as needed. Great call quality is promised too with four external microphones and a noise-rejecting algorithm that is able to filter out environmental sounds for clearer conversations. A quick 15-minute charge gives you three hours playback while a full charge provides you with up to 22 hours.

Save $500 on this stunning 75-inch mini-LED TV at Best Buy

If you're big into watching sports, then you'll probably want to grab yourself a large TV, especially if you enjoy hosting game nights for friends and need something for a larger living room setup. Luckily, TCL has you covered with its QM8 Series TVs, which are not only massive but also pretty well-suited to sports and other content, which you'll see in a minute. While it usually goes for $1,800, Best Buy is discounting it heavily down to just $1,300, which is a substantial $500 discount. That may still feel like a lot, but you're getting a lot in return.

Why you should buy the 75-inch TCL QM8 Series
There is a lot to love about the TCL QM8 Series, the least of which is that it comes with mini-LEDs, which use thousands of smaller LEDs to give you finer control of the brightness and color of a specific area. That means you get much better contrast compared to a normal LED panel, and thus provides you with better image fidelity and reproduction. It also comes with several HDR technologies that help support that sort of dynamic contrast, including things like HDR10+ and HLG HDR, the latter of which is what most sports broadcasters use, so it's perfect if you love to watch sports regularly. Interestingly, there's no upscaler here, but that doesn't mean you can't still enjoy older content on the large TV, especially if your TV is placed relatively far away from where you're sitting.
