After a week of solid deals, we have a few bangers to top off your weekend. For starters, Woot is offering great prices for some of Sony’s high-end headphones, both for those who prefer in-ear headphones and true wireless headphones.
You may be no stranger to the Sony WH-1000XM4 headphones, and for good reason, as they were our top pick for the best headphones you could buy for quite a while. Their title has been usurped by the newer and more expensive WH-1000XM5, but the XM4 is still a great option with excellent sound quality, noise cancellation and the ability to fold up for easier storage (a glaring omission from the revised design of the new model).
Woot is offering the WH-1000XM4 headphones for a one-day price of $269.99 (about $80 off), but if you’re an Amazon Prime subscriber and ordering through the Woot app on iOS or Android, you get an additional $20 discount. That drops the price to $249.99 with free shipping, which matches the low price of these we last saw over the holidays. Read our review.
If headphones are more your jam, the Sony WF-1000XM4 headphones are also a great offering from Woot – although there are other stipulations you need to be aware of. Woot is selling an international imported model of the Sony WF-1000XM4 Bluetooth noise canceling headphones for $199.99 ($80 off) on its site. There’s nothing physically different about these headphones, which are in brand new condition, but since they’re imported, the only warranty is the 90-day warranty provided by Woot. If you’re unsure, there’s also a 30-day return window for some peace of mind. The extra-special offer is for Amazon Prime subscribers who order through the Woot app today and can get an additional $20 off, bringing the price of the buds down to $179.99 ($100 off ).
The WF-1000XM4 (we know the Sony names are convoluted and terrible) still hold the crown of best headphones to buy in our buying guide, thanks to their superior noise cancellation, detailed sound quality and impressive battery life. Read our review.
Now, there’s only one more deal to mention in Woot’s obsessive attempts to get you to download and use its app. The animal crossing The Nintendo Switch console edition is discounted to $269.99 ($30 off) for Amazon Prime subscribers through the Woot app — others get it for just $10 off. Yes, it’s the same Switch launched in 2017, not the fancier OLED version, but it’s hard to deny that cute colorway and design. I can speak from a little experience here, as this edition is one of three Switches I own (I may have a problem), and it’s by far the most charming.
Tragically, you don’t get a pack-in copy of Animal Crossing: New Horizons with this Switch, but the Joy-Cons and raised design on the back are quite the treat. Plus, the $40 saved on this one-day deal offsets most or all of the cost of New Horizons, Mario Kart 8 DeluxeWhere Super Mario Odyssey – all of which are on sale right now.
Alright, now for a bargain available to everyone: Samsung’s original Galaxy Buds Pro in white are on sale at Amazon and Best Buy for $129.99 ($70 off). This almost matches their all-time Black Friday 2021 low. The new Galaxy Buds 2 Pro are coming out very soon, and in our review they look and sound great, but they’re also $30 more than the previous model. . If you don’t feel the need to be on the cutting edge of the latest model, this deal on the older Galaxy Buds Pro is great value, especially if you prefer Samsung phones, as some extra features are exclusively in the Galaxy lineup. .
The original Galaxy Buds Pro sound great, offer good active noise cancellation, and IPX7 sweat and water resistance. Their microphones may not be up to scratch compared to new headphones, but the money saved can help you forgive. Read our review.
Some more interesting offers on Saturday:
- If you like a game that mixes brutal challenge with beautiful visuals, the digital version of Cuphead is $13.99 ($6 off) on the Nintendo eShop, Microsoft Store (Xbox), and Steam (PC). This small sale almost makes up for the cost of its excellent DLC which has just been launched recently.
- The remaster of the classic 1997 shooter Conviction 64 is available now for free on PC via the Epic Games Store. You have until August 25 at 11 a.m. ET to claim it.
- Costco is offering Apple’s base model Mac Mini with M1 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage for an all-time low price of $569.99 (about $119 off) through Sunday, August 21. If you’re not a Costco member, you can pay an extra 5%, which adds $33.50, which is still a very reasonable price for this value-for-money desktop computer. But don’t forget that you need a monitor, keyboard and mouse to go along with it. Read our review.
- The Turtle Beach Recon Controller for Xbox and PC is $44.95 ($15 off) in black or white at Amazon. This wired USB-C controller is excellent for playing online shooters thanks to its programmable rear buttons and audio features to let you better hear enemy footsteps. The cheaper Turtle Beach React-R model just launched in the US at $39.99, but for just $5 more the Recon is a better buy. Read our review.
- A prepaid digital voucher for a one-year PlayStation Plus Essential subscription costs $39.16 at Eneba with coupon code PSP. The exact price may fluctuate a bit, but it should stay around $20 for the duration of the trade. If you have the higher levels of PlayStation Plus Extra or Premium, you can use this offer and get a pro-rated extension.
