It might not feel like spring, but for those who are looking for a seasonal refresh, don’t limit that shopping spree to your wardrobe.
Instead, consider your audio needs. You’re going to be outside more often (for NYers, this might not happen until late April), on the move between work and home and hopefully traveling more. If you’ve been relying on the same speakers, headphones and earbuds during the past two years, it’s a good time to upgrade, thanks to a number of audio discounts available at Best Buy at up to 50% off, many involving some of our favorite brands (Sonos, Sony, Bose, etc.).
Below, a few sale highlights:
Your New Portable Speaker: Sony SRS-XB43
A waterproof, lightweight and compact (it’ll fit in your car’s cup holder) Bluetooth speaker with up to 24 hours of music per charge — and, with a couple of built-in USB ports, it can even power up your phone.
Your New Home Speakers: Klipsch Reference Series 2-Way Bookshelf Speakers
Get clear, crisp sound from this pair of bookshelf speakers (FYI, there are wired), which features a handsome vinyl woodgrain finish.
Your New Soundbar: Insignia 2.1-Channel Soundbar with Wireless Subwoofer
Best Buy’s brand is a no-frills way to upgrade the audio on your flatscreen and offer up an additional Bluetooth speaker for your living room. And this one comes with a wireless subwoofer.
Your Cheaper Sony Headphones Alternative: Sony WH-CH710N Headphones
Sony’s WH-1000XM4 headphones are ideal, but a good (and much, much cheaper) alternative for over-ear, noise-cancelling cans arrives via the WH-CH710N, which has up to 35 hours of listening time per charge … now for under $100.
Your New Workout Earbuds: Bose Sport Earbuds
Available in three colors, these sweat- and weather-resistant ‘buds will stay comfortably in your ears during workouts and offer up simple touch controls.
