Amazon’s Prime Day — which is, yes, two days (June 21-22) — is here, and for Prime members, it allows access to thousands of deals.
Some of these deals are OK. Some you can probably find again, or with a better discount, on any other random week. But tech — particularly gadgets from Amazon itself — is a solid investment for the next two days.
We decided to narrow this down by tech category and pick the best deal that’s not going to expire in 20 minutes (some of the deals are timed, some will last one or both days or until stock runs out).
Best Headphones Deal: Sony WH-1000XM4
Available in three colors, these noise-cancelling cans offer up to 30 hours of playback per charge and some of the best sound we’ve ever heard from a wireless set.
Best Headphones Deal (White Edition): Bose 700
Well, they’re calling it “soapstone.” In any case, Bose makes our favorite noise-cancelling headphones for travel, and if you’re OK with the white-ish hue, this is the best price we’ve ever seen. (The black and silver models are $299, and that’s still $100 off).
Best Earbuds Deal: Apple AirPods Pro
Active noise cancellation, customizable fit and sweat/water-resistance makes this the ideal Apple earbud.
Best Portable Speaker Deal: Marshall Kilburn II
A portable Bluetooth speaker with vintage vibes but a modern brain. It can play for 20 hours per charge and connect with two different devices.
Best Home Speaker Deal: Klipsch R-41SA
Almost everything from home audio gurus Klipsch is 25-50% off right now at Amazon, so you could pair this set of Dolby Atmos-ready speakers with soundbars, subwoofers, earbuds or floor-standing speakers on the cheap.
Best Amazon Smart Gadget Deal: Echo Show 8
The 2021 version of the bedside / kitchen display features an HD screen, 13MP camera and, of course, Alexa integration.
Best Smartwatch Deal: Fitbit Sense
Measure hearth health and skin temperature — and monitor your stress levels — with this smartwatch, which is compatible with Google Assistant or Alexa.
Best Chromebook Deal: Lenovo Flex 5
Thanks to 360 degrees of flexibility, this is a touch-screen tablet and a laptop, and it’ll run 10 hours on a charge.
