Our review of the V-Moda Crossfade 2 headphones described them as “the best at nothing, but great at most things.” Right now, you can save $50 on this pair of versatile, premium headphones at Best Buy. The Crossfade 2 feature a noise-isolating design and solid sound quality paired with a classy, comfortable, and durable design. While they can last for up to 15 hours on a single charge, it is a little disappointing to see that these headphones can only be topped off via Micro USB instead of the more modern USB-C. However, anyone on the hunt for a pair of headphones that boast some curb appeal should look no further than the V-Moda Crossfade 2.
Apple’s second-generation AirPods with a wired charging case are just $109 at Amazon and Walmart, which is nearly the lowest price we’ve seen yet. These originally sold for $159. Unlike the first-gen model, these allow for hands-free “Hey Siri” voice inquiries. They can easily connect to Apple products like the Apple Watch, iPhone, iPad, and more. And they can switch between them automatically when you’re signed in with the same Apple ID on multiple devices.
Asus’ ROG Flow X13, a 2-in-1 gaming laptop that can be connected to an external graphics card enclosure for better performance, is $1,350 at Best Buy. It’s stellar by itself, though, with AMD’s fast and efficient Ryzen 9 5900 HS processor, Nvidia’s RTX 3050 Ti graphics chip, 16GB of RAM, a 1TB SSD. It’s rare to find a 16:10 aspect ratio display in a gaming laptop, but this is one of the few models that offers one. Read our review here.
The Acer Nitro XV272U is a rock-solid gaming monitor that you can currently grab on Amazon for $248. This 27-inch 1440p panel features a 144Hz refresh rate and also comes equipped with AMD FreeSync and G-Sync compatibility. This makes the Acer Nitro a tough contender to beat at this price point. The monitor has connectivity for HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort inputs. The minimalist stand offers versatility, but it can also be mounted on a wall or monitor arm using any 100 x 100 VESA mount.
Ring’s Floodlight Cam Pro hasn’t seen all that many discounts since it launched in April 2021, but there’s a $40 price cut happening at Best Buy and Amazon that you might want to check out. Originally $250, it’s $210 right now in black or white. This model requires hardwiring, and like the Video Doorbell Pro 2, it includes 3D Motion Detection with radar, along with the Bird’s Eye View feature that can show a top-down view of someone’s movements in front of the camera.
