Bose's QuietComfort 45 noise-cancelling headphones are $50 off today

If you’re planning on flying this summer, a good pair of noise-cancelling headphones that can block out fellow passengers, like the Bose QuietComfort 45s, can come in handy. For a regular $329, you can now buy it from Amazon, Best Buy, and Bose for $279, which is its all-time low and the first significant discount we’ve seen in months.

These are the most comfortable noise-cancelling over-ears we’ve tested, with oval-shaped earcups that help prevent ear fatigue on long flights, for example. At the same time, they’re also fairly light and foldable, making them easy to take with you and store away, and thanks to their 24-hour battery, you don’t have to worry about recharging them anytime soon. Other notable features include a useful transparency mode that you can enable when you need to be more aware of your surroundings, and USB-C. While they don’t offer the same bassy sound as Sony’s 1000XM4 or new 1000XM5, they do offer the ability to adjust bass and other EQ settings. Read our review.

If you’ve been considering buying a fitness tracker but have been put off by the Fitbit Versa and pricier models, you’re in luck. Today, Walmart and Amazon are both selling the black Amazfit Bip S — our favorite budget-friendly tracker — for $49, its best price ever. The budget-based tracker boasts an impressive two-week battery life, delivers accurate results, and even shares some commonalities with more expensive competitors.

Some of those features include built-in GPS, continuous heart-rate monitoring, advanced sleep tracking, and a colorful always-on display — something not even the $279 Apple Watch SE offers. We’ll admit it’s unattractive and more akin to a fitness tracker than a full-fledged smartwatch, but the simple device lets you view notifications and even control music from your wrist. It even works with iOS and Android, which can’t be said for many wearables these days.

If you’re looking for a Chromebook that looks professional, this is the one you should buy. In the world of Chromebooks, this convertible offers a solid, sturdy build similar to Apple’s MacBook. It also bears resemblance to high-end Windows ThinkPads due to its aluminum design, red trackpoint in the center of the keyboard, and small webcam latch.

However, like all devices, it has its pitfalls. The processor on this model isn’t well suited for more demanding work like video editing or gaming, but it’s perfectly fine for everyday tasks and browsing. However, if you don’t need a lot of power and don’t mind that the battery life isn’t great, then it’s worth considering. Read our review.
