This afternoon, Logitech announced that it has acquired popular sport Bluetooth headphone maker, Jaybird, to the tune of $95 million. Logitech will pay Jaybird $50 million in cash, but then they are including a $45 million earn-out, depending on how sales of Jaybird’s products continue over the next couple of years. (more…)
Today only, Anker and Amazon have teamed up to run a Gold Box deal where a number of their popular products are discounted up to 60%. We are talking deals on Bluetooth earbuds as low as $20, 16000mAh battery packs for $25, Quick Charge 2.0 2-port car chargers for $15, IPX7 Bluetooth speakers for $23, and more.
If you are in need of some new accessories, today’s package of deals is certainly worth a look. Anker has always made solid products that are well-reviewed on Amazon and the discounts featured are on some of their best.
Jaybird’s Bluebuds X, arguably one of the most popular sets of sport Bluetooth headphones of all time, are currently available on Amazon through a lightning deal for just $72. These headphones originally retailed for around $170, but have dropped a lot in price in recent years as new models have been introduced.
This is the original pair of X headphones from Jaybird that have since been replaced by the X2 and soon-to-be-released X3. They still offer pretty incredible sound quality for sport Bluetooth buds, 8 hours of play time, controls over your phone, and a bunch of adjustable pieces to help you get the best fit.
As a long-time user of Jaybird X products, I’d highly recommend considering this deal if you are in the market for some of the best Bluetooth headphones money can buy at a reasonably low price, even if these are the original model that have been replaced. I’ve used the X and X2, and will likely upgrade again to the X3 once they come out. The quality and sound with this line is unmatched, in my opinion.
UPDATE: Ugh, it looks like they already sold out at $72. I refreshed just before posting and thought it was at 22% claimed. Sorry, folks.
On most days, Amazon’s rolling list of daily deals includes few tech-related products that are worth looking at. If you dig hard enough, you’ll typically find a decent discount on a charger or TV or pair of headphones, they just don’t typically show up in bundles. Today, though, the retailer has a bunch that may be worth a glance if you are interested in spending some cash on gadgets.
If you want to take your non-smart TV and make it somewhat smart, you can pick-up Amazon’s own Fire TV for $15 off. That discount is on either the regular Fire TV or the Fire TV Gaming Edition, which includes a gamepad, 32GB microSD card, and two games.
As for other deals, TaoTronics’ Bluetooth sport headphones (ear buds) are down to just $13.99. While these aren’t going to be on the quality level of something like a Jaybird product, they would make for a decent low-priced Bluetooth headset for on-the-go travels or the sweat-filled workout. They have a 4-star rating with almost 1,600 reviews.
Finally, Aukey’s line of Quick Charge 2.0 products has all been steeply discounted. You can grab a single port wall charger with QC 2.0 for $9.49, 5-port QC 2.0 charging station for $17.99, or a 4-port QC 2.0 car charger for $9.99. (more…)
Deals, deals, deals. We’re always on the hunt for deals. Today, we’ve got a pretty serious list from some of the regular crew featured here on DL, which includes names like Aukey, Anker, iOrange-E, and LG. We have everything below from portable battery packs with Quick Charge 2.0 to IPX4 rated Bluetooth speakers to USB Type-C cables and the Watch Urbane with a $150 discount.
Some have codes, almost all should have Amazon Prime shipping, and most are for a limited time. (more…)
It’s a new year, so I can imagine that plenty of you are thinking about goals that might include getting your ass back in shape after spending the holiday season consuming heavy winter ales, cheese platters, and massive amounts of Grandma’s party mix. No? Just me? OK, ignore my booze and party mix-filled past couple of months for a minute. Let’s say (as a general example), there is the slightest chance that you are the type to set health goals for a new year, you might want to workout a bit here or there with some tunes, consider today’s DL for the MMOVE Stereo Bluetooth Earbuds that only costs $29.99.
Most high-end Bluetooth earbuds will cost you close to $200. That’s a lot of cash to fork out for something you are going to sweat all over and that you might lose on a jog or post-race or on a bench at the gym or at the bar post-workout. Doesn’t $30 sound much more reasonable? (more…)
Qualcomm intends to make the audio you hear between your phone and a pair of Bluetooth earbuds sound as good as if it were a wired connection. Today at CES, the chipmaker announced aptX HD, a “newly enhanced” codec that delivers 24-bit music quality over a wireless Bluetooth connection. (more…)
