Google’s terrific Pixel Buds Pro are already $25 off at Amazon


Welcome back to the arena of deals. Our first discount this week is on the excellent Google Pixel Buds Pro, released less than a month ago. Usually priced at $199.99, you can currently find these new earbuds on Amazon for $174.99 in their black or yellow colorways. The Pixel Buds Pro are a drastic improvement over their mediocre predecessor, with solid noise cancellation, improved battery life and multipoint Bluetooth support. While the sound quality doesn’t quite match some of our top picks, this discount makes the Pixel Buds Pro worth considering if you’re in the market for a new pair of earbuds. Read our review.

Google’s Pixel Buds Pro offer active noise cancellation, a transparency mode, wireless charging, and other high-end features we’ve come to expect from premium wireless earbuds.

There is still an opportunity to score a discount on the recently released Google Pixel 6A. Normally priced at $449, you can get the white, black or green colorways of Google’s latest midrange phone for $399. The default 60Hz refresh rate on the screen is a bit of a downer, but just about anything you could want. of a flagship Google phone takes center stage on the 6A. This includes excellent battery life, top-notch processor performance and solid camera results. The 6A differs from the standard and Pro models of the Pixel 6 by having a slightly less powerful camera and a smaller screen, among a few other compromises. Importantly, it still packs the same Google Tensor processor as its more expensive siblings. Read our review.

Google’s Pixel 6A comes with a relatively small 6.1-inch OLED display, but performs well with a good camera and battery life.

Now back to earplugs. Both the Sony LinkBuds and LinkBuds S are currently discounted on Amazon. The open-ear LinkBuds are on sale for $158 at Amazon (a discount of $22), and the LinkBuds S are down to $148 at Amazon (a discount of $52). While the LinkBuds were available for less, it’s only $10 more than their best ever price. However, this is the best price yet for the LinkBuds S.

The LinkBuds S stand out as some of the most comfortable earbuds we’ve ever tested. While the noise cancellation is a bit lackluster, the LinkBuds S offer support for the LDAC lossless audio codec, which will likely please some audiophiles. The LinkBuds S also offer remarkable audio clarity when used for voice calls, making them a great choice for earbuds under $150.

The standard LinkBuds are certainly one of Sony’s more idiosyncratic designs. Their open ear donut shape allows you to stay aware of your surroundings without having to take them out of your ears. You might think the unique shape wouldn’t be particularly comfortable, but the LinkBuds are just as comfortable as the LinkBuds S and offer the same impressive clarity when used for voice calls.

Read our reviews of the Sony LinkBuds and LinkBuds S.

Sony’s LinkBuds have a striking design rooted in comfort and an airy, open sound. They also excel when used for voice calls and outperform virtually all competitors.

Now, as a treat, a deal for the gamers. Initially priced at $169.99, the Razer Basilisk Ultimate Wireless Mouse with Charging Dock is currently discounted to $79.99 at Amazon and Best Buy. This is the lowest price we’ve seen yet for one of Razer’s most powerful mice. The Basilisk Ultimate features a 20K DPI sensor and 11 programmable inputs. While it may lack the improved scroll wheel and RGB lighting of the more modern Razer Basilisk V3 or the improved polling rate we’ve seen with some other Razer mice, the Basilisk Ultimate remains an excellent wireless option. Can last up to 100 hours with RGB lighting turned off, charging is handled by resting the mouse on the included dock, which doubles as a home for the 2.4GHz wireless dongle.

Razer’s most customizable wireless mouse, the Basilisk Ultimate features a charging dock, removable sniper button and adjustable scroll wheel. You can also adjust the Chroma RGB, giving you more control over your lightning.

The high roller deal for our roundup today is a discount on the powerful Mac Studio with an M1 Max chip, currently available from B&H Photo for $1,999 instead of the usual $2,199. A $200 discount may seem like a drop in the ocean for a device this expensive, but it remains the best price we’ve seen for this powerful desktop’s 24-core GPU configuration. This model retains the same form factor as other configurations in the Mac Studio lineup and includes 32GB of RAM and 512GB of storage in addition to the 10-core CPU.

In addition to a relatively small footprint, the Mac Studio features an impressive port selection, including a pair of Thunderbolt 4 ports and an SDXC card reader on the front. It has four more USB-C ports on the back, along with a pair of USB-A ports, an HDMI output, ethernet jack and a 3.5mm audio jack.

While the price of admission is certainly high and cannot be upgraded afterwards, the Mac Studio offers excellent performance in a compact form factor. Read our review.

The starting configuration of the Mac Studio uses an M1 Max CPU and is equipped with 32GB unified memory and 512GB storage.
