Sony’s WH-1000XM3 over-ear wireless headphones normally cost $350, but they’re down to $248, which is the cheapest that we’ve seen them at Amazon, Walmart, and Best Buy. Other sites have sold refurbished models for around $200, but this is a great deal for a new set. These are now Sony’s previous-generation flagship noise-canceling headphones, making way just last week for the WH-1000XM4 to take their place as the model for all other brands to beat.

While that new model adds some great features we wish were in these (namely, support for multiple Bluetooth connections and automatically pausing music when you remove them), the last-gen model still measures up well in terms of battery life and sound quality, especially when you consider you’re saving $100.

You can get either the black or silver model (both with bronze detailing) for the same price.

We recently featured a $98 deal on the Sony WF-XB700, wireless earbuds that pack in a lot of bass without a hefty price tag. Now, they’re another $20 off at Amazon, which makes for a full $50 discount on the set. My colleague Chris Welch picked these as the best no-frills wireless earbuds option if you just want something simple that will stay in your ears without the need for ear fins.

In case you missed it yesterday, Google’s discontinued Pixel 4 is available at a few retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, and B&H Photo. What’s more, it’s $250 off its normal price, and the discount extends to the 64GB and 128GB models. This brings their prices down to $549 and $649, respectively.
