The Jaybird X2 sport headphones are some of our favorites around these parts. Not only do they sound great for a Bluetooth pair of headphones, but they look snazzy, fit well, and last for a week’s worth of workouts. They are, at least for me personally, my go-to headphones for workouts and have been since the day they launched.
With that in mind, and if you are in the market for a new pair of top-tier Bluetooth headphones, you may want to cruise over to Amazon today. As of right now, the Jaybird X2 in white has been discounted by $80 to $99. There are others that are $70, $60, and $50 off as well.
My guess is that they are being discounted because Jaybird just launched their new Freedom headphones this morning. While the Freedom look promising and should be a solid option, at $99, the X2 are just too good of a deal to pass on.

Back in late March, a report surfaced that stated Google was working on an Amazon Echo-like device. Not many details were known at the time, but really, how much info does one need? The Amazon Echo is a pretty straightforward device. You speak to it, it listens. It can play music from Amazon Prime Music, can create shopping lists for you, and even works with Nest, if you own a smart thermostat. Now, picture all of that stuff, but built by Google for use with Google’s multitude of services. (more…)
$9 for a 32GB microSD card from Sony seems like a really good price for an item that will double the storage of your 32GB phone, right? You can pick one up right now from Amazon (with Prime shipping).
If 32GB isn’t enough space, the 128GB card from Sony is also down to just $33.49.
Need a smartwatch? How about one of Samsung’s Gear S2 models? As of today, the Gear S2 and Gear S2 Classic have been discounted by $50 at Best Buy and Amazon. And we are talking about all models, including the new platinum and rose gold Classics.
At a $50 discount, you can get into the regular Gear S2 for $249, the Classic for $299, or the platinum and rose gold Classic versions for $399.
Months ago, when the Gear S2 was first released, I spent a good amount of time with it to see if it could become my smartwatch of choice. While I prefer Android Wear devices to Samsung’s wearables, there is no denying the attractive hardware here, really cool rotating bezel, and somewhat robust software experience. If anything, the Gear S2 is a solid alternative to Android Wear.

The Amazon Fire TV, a streaming media box that is also one of the few pieces of Amazon hardware worth owning, has been discounted today to $84.99, down from its usual $100 price. I say that this is one of the few, because the Fire TV offers great value for the price, while helping turn your TV into a smart one.
With the Fire TV, you get not only the box that connects to your TV, but you also get Amazon’s voice remote that now has access to Alexa. Yep, that’s the same Alexa that powers the Amazon Echo and lets you ask for the weather or sports scores or shout out commands like, “Alexa, play Prince all day every day!”
The Fire TV also supports 4K, thanks to a recent update, and still gives you access to your favorite media services like Netflix, ESPN, AMC, HBO Now, etc. You can play games on the Fire TV as well.
The Huawei Watch, an Android Wear smartwatch that is about as good as it gets for the current crop, has been discounted by either $100 or $150 depending on the model. Amazon, Best Buy, and Newegg are all selling the watch with heavy discounts.
The base model, which has a stainless steel case and leather strap, has dropped from $350 to $250 for a limited time. The same goes for the black stainless steel, stainless steel with mesh bracelet, and the all stainless with classic steel bracelet. Those have all been discounted by a solid $100. But, if you want some gold in your life, Huawei is shaving off $150 for the all gold with metal bracelet and the gold model with leather bracelet.
