There’s a fantastic discount happening on the previous generation Sony WH-1000XM3 wireless, noise-canceling headphones at Best Buy. Originally $350 (but usually around $250 or so these days), you can get them for $190 new. While these lack some niceties found in the newer XM4 model (concurrent Bluetooth connections, auto play / pause when you remove them or put them on), the package is overall similar in terms of nailing the fundamentals. These have great battery life, USB-C charging, among the best noise cancellation effect around, and sound quality that’s tough to beat at this price. In addition, these come with a zip-up case that makes them easy to stow. I bought these in 2018 and am still patting myself on the back for that decision.

Sony’s previous-generation flagship noise-canceling headphones, the 1000XM3, have been outshined by the few extra features that their successor brings. But if all that you want is comfort, excellent sound, and a world-hushing noise cancellation effect, these are still worth getting for a deal.

Nintendo’s limited-edition Game & Watch handheld is $10 off at B&H Photo, costing $40 instead of $50.

The handheld itself is more technologically impressive than original Game & Watch consoles, with a color LCD screen and USB-C charging.


This modern take on Nintendo’s retro Game & Watch handheld includes playable versions of the first two Mario titles.
