The OnePlus 2 will be unveiled on July 27 to the world through a virtual reality presentation that is sure to be something to tell your children about. (Whoa, Kellen, what’s with the heavy sarcasm this morning, bruh?) As we close in on that day, OnePlus is guaranteed to unapologetically hypebeast the hell of the phone by revealing one feature at a time, all the while remaining in headlines and relevant. We’re deep into the (t)rollout of features and loving every second of it! (Sarcasm bath x2.) But because we lack patience, we will also be on the hunt for details that we can unearth on our own, like this filing that showed up at Bluetooth SIG. (more…)
Motorola is currently hosting a couple of solid deals on their current line of premium products that you may be interested in. First, the Moto 360 has been slashed by $70 to $180 in celebration of Mother’s Day. That’s the same price that Google is currently selling it, but Motorola lets you customize one through Moto Maker, which means you could choose from a variety of colors or bands.
The second deal is for a bundle that includes the Moto X and wireless Sol Republic headphones. For $399, you can get both, and the Moto X can be customized through Moto Maker. At $399, Motorola is basically slashing $100 off the price of the phone, but then also tossing in free $200 wireless Bluetooth, on-ear headphones. The Moto X may not be on the level of the Galaxy S6 or G4 at this point, but that’s still a hell of a value buy there.
If you want to get into the world of wireless Bluetooth earbuds, but don’t necessarily want to fork out for the really expensive sets, we have a deal for you that’s going away tomorrow. The Wireless Feather Bluetooth Earbuds that have been selling quite well in the DL Deals shop are still available for a few more hours at just $24.99.
Again, these aren’t the most premium Bluetooth earbuds on the planet, but they aren’t trying to be. These are entry-level buds for those who want to experience a world without wires and without breaking the bank.
The design is lightweight and features tangle-free wires, has 30ft Bluetooth connectivity, and a built-in microphone so that you can take calls.
Bluetooth ear buds are one of those consumer electronics that don’t typically carry reasonable prices, especially when you start talking about the best of the best. The good ones are well over $100 and the cheap ones lack features. But these are still an accessory we tend to recommend for those who workout or for those who hate the idea of wires getting in the way of activities on a regular basis.
For those interested, the DL Deals shop currently has a pair of Wireless Bluetooth Cloud Buds for just $24.99. The regular price typically hovers around $100, so you are looking at a sizable discount here. Are these the best Bluetooth ear buds on the market? No. Are they affordable and fully featured? Yep. These would be a great first venture in the world of active Bluetooth headphones.
The Cloud Buds feature a lightweight, wireless construction, noise-canceling outer shell, built-in mic and remote, and multiple sizes of gel ear buds to ensure proper fit.
The $25 will go up after Wednesday, so be sure to get in on this today.
I can think of a number of situations where I may want some music to be playing but wouldn’t need (or want) the best sounding, most expensive Bluetooth speaker on the market. There are those times – like say, at the beach or a friend’s BBQ or while camping or when in the shower – where you would be better off using an incredibly durable Bluetooth speaker that is waterproof, sounds good enough, yet doesn’t break the bank. For those times, you may want to consider something like the Jive Jumbo waterproof Bluetooth speaker, which is available for a limited time in the DL deals shop for just $22.95.
This is one of those speakers that suctions to a variety of surfaces, carries an IPX7 waterproof rating, and works with pretty much any device equipped with Bluetooth. You could drop this thing in a pool, rinse it off in a sink, probably let your dog chew on it for a minute, and then toss it in the bottom of the bag for use at the next summer gathering that involves too much booze. This isn’t the best speaker on Earth, but it is an affordable option that could come in handy in a pinch.
The Galaxy S6s and HTC One M9 are arriving within a month, so it’s going to be tough to justify buying any other phone for the time being. Motorola is going to try to convince you that the Moto X “Pure Edition” is still worth it (and maybe it is for all we know), though, with today’s deal that will land you a new Moto X “Pure Edition” and a pair of TRACKS AIR Sol Republic Bluetooth on-ear headphones for just $449.94.
If you break it down, Motorola is basically giving you a Moto X “Pure Edition” with 16GB of storage, customized with MotoMaker, for $450. That’s a $50 discount over the normal full price. They are then tossing in $200 Bluetooth on-ear headphones for free.
Tough choice or are we all just waiting at this point?
