I usually prefer to highlight the best deals you can get on new tech, but sometimes a refurbished deal is good enough to make the grade. Sony’s 1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones haven’t slipped below $278 new (down from their usual $349 price), but a well-rated eBay seller is offering them in “like-new” condition with all original accessories included for $208. And with eBay’s offer code PICKCR5 used at checkout, you can knock an extra 5 percent off, totaling $198 before tax.

If you’re in the US, buying refurbished tech from eBay isn’t such a bad idea, as the retailer backs it with a two-year warranty through Allstate. If you encounter a problem with your purchase outside of the seller’s return window or warranty, you can file a claim to get a repair or a replacement if repair isn’t possible.

At eBay, you can get a refurbished set of Sony’s WH-1000XM4 wireless noise-canceling headphones for $150 off their usual cost. These refurbs are supposedly in “like-new” condition and include all original accessories. Enter the code PICKCR5 at checkout to save more.

If you’ve had your eye on Apple’s latest iPad Air with a refreshed design, a fast A14 Bionic processor, and a USB-C charging port, the upgraded model with 256GB of storage is $70 off for the first time at Amazon. Usually $749, it’s $680 in every color that’s available. This is $20 lower than the previous best price, according to pricing data from CamelCamelCamel.

Apple’s new iPad Air looks more like the iPad Pro than other traditional iPad tablets. It features the A14 Bionic processor and has a 10.9-inch True Tone display. For biometrics, it has a side-mounted Touch ID sensor.

In case you missed it, Half-Life: Alyx for VR is 40 percent off in celebration of its release about a year ago. Usually $60, you can pick it up at Steam for $36 until March 31st. You’ll obviously need a VR headset to play it. May I suggest the Oculus Quest 2 that starts at $299? The headset can be wired to your PC to behave just like a Rift, but for a wireless alternative, purchasing the Virtual Desktop app for the Quest 2 will let you play Half-Life: Alyx over Wi-Fi without cables attached to your PC.
