Happy Saturday, friends! When it comes to workout-friendly earbuds that are aimed at the gym, we spend a lot of time propping up the Beats Fit Pro. However, if you’re in need of something that’s easier on your wallet, Anker’s Soundcore Sport X10 are on sale in black at Amazon for $55.99 ($24 off), nearly matching their best price to date.
The X10 pack a lot of value into their sub-$60 package. Their flexible, wraparound hooks ensure a secure fit regardless of your activity, and they offer bass-heavy sound that’s well-suited for the kind of beat-driven tracks that often define our gym playlist (err, or at least my gym playlist). They round out said feature set with up to eight hours of playback, a useful transparency mode, and an IPX7 rating for water and sweat resistance. For the price, that’s an absolute bargain.
Anker’s Soundcore Sport X10 headphones have powerful bass, flexible ear loops that keep them in place, and an IPX7 rating for water and sweat resistance. They can also provide up to eight hours of continuous battery life.
Microsoft has done a nice job giving people what they want in recent years — that is, assuming what you wanted was an Xbox controller in every fit and finish. The company has just begun rolling out new color options for the pro-grade Xbox Elite Series 2, though, if you want something more basic, the latest Xbox Wireless Controller is a great option that comes in an assortment of colors, some of which have hit an all-time low at Amazon, Walmart, and the Microsoft Store.
In terms of pricing, the high-vis yellow option — which is available for $39.99 ($25 off) from Amazon, Walmart, and Microsoft — is your best bet. You can also pick up the blue model at Amazon and the Microsoft Store for around $49 ($15 off), the red model from Microsoft for $44.99 ($20 off), or the special edition camo model in either red or blue at Walmart, where both are currently going for $54 ($16 off).
Each configuration offers the same great hardware and feature set, meaning you’ll be getting a Bluetooth-equipped controller that works well for Xbox consoles and PC regardless of which color you choose.
The official Xbox Wireless Controller has a dedicated share button for saving clips and screenshots and sharing them online, Bluetooth support, and a USB-C port for charging up Microsoft’s play-and-charge rechargeable battery.
In news that should surprise no one, The Super Mario Bros. Movie has been smashing records at the box office, quickly becoming the highest-grossing film of 2023 so far. And if you want to play out some of Mario’s previous adventures on your Nintendo Switch, you can still pick up some of Nintendo’s first-party exclusives for up to $20 off.
Right now, you can grab New Super Mario Bros. U Deluxe for around $39 ($20 off) at Best Buy or Amazon. The ongoing promo extends to other physical and digital titles starring the titular plumber and his companions, too, including Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Luigi’s Mansion 3, both of which are currently on sale at Amazon for $39.99 ($20 off). Lastly, if you prefer a charming platformer that’s heavy on whimsy and, huh, yarn, consider Yoshi’s Crafted World, which is also down to $39 ($20 off) at Amazon and Best Buy.
Super Mario 3D World is a polished version of the Wii U classic with a new expansion called Bowser’s Fury, which sees you collecting coins in an archipelago as you skirt, or battle, a kaiju-size Bowser.
