Whether you’re thinking micro (AirPods) or macro (a fabulous new Fire TV Edition TV) or something in between, we know there’s something on this list to save you serious bucks. Here are the best tech deals for Amazon Prime Day 2020.
Amazon has these wireless Sony WH-CH710N Noise-Canceling Headphones, which are on sale for $88, or $110 off. That’s an incredible 56 percent savings and the lowest price we’ve ever seen on these top-rated headphones. Ever!
Usually priced at $198, these wireless headphones feature the crisp and clear audio you’d come to expect from Sony. Best of all, this is one of the most wallet-friendliest ways to get premium noise-canceling, thanks to Sony’s ‘Dual Noise Sensor Technology’ that blocks out nearly all background and ambient noise. No humming from your air conditioner or noise from your washing machine; it’ll just be you and your music.
“The Sony headphones are perfect. They sync easily and the sound is clear,” raved a delighted five-star Amazon reviewer. “The noise-canceling feature is great and often annoys my wife and kids when I can’t hear them. These are very comfortable and I haven’t had an issue with the ear pads (keeps the ears warm during the cold winter months). The charging is quick and the battery life is very good.”
Right now, Amazon’s Kindle Paperwhite Essentials Bundle—which includes the thinnest and lightest Kindle model yet—is on sale for just $95, or $45 off, as a Prime Day deal. That’s a 32 percent savings and the all-time lowest price for this bundle, which comes with an Amazon Leather Cover (a $30 value) and an Amazon five-watt Power Adapter (a $20 value).
“I bought this Kindle to replace an old keyboard one,” shared a five-star reviewer. “I wanted one that I could read in bed without a light on and also needed to be able to adjust the type size. This meets my needs perfectly. I read about 45 minutes to an hour every day and the initial charge is still about 70 percent after a couple weeks.”
The Bose Home Speaker 300 is an impressive device with a 360-degree design. The sound is crisp and clear, plus you get smart home features via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant and access to music streaming services like Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more.
“I am really impressed with this small speaker,” wrote a satisfied five-star reviewer. “Every voice, musical instrument, footstep, car door, even the fall of leaves can be heard from this device. Watching movies from my tablet has never been better. This Bose produces fantastic sound. I keep my volume on low and it can still be heard in the next room.”
In fact, you can bring your own music to the party—just connect the speaker to your phone via Bluetooth, Wi-Fi or Apple Airplay 2.
On sale for $45 for Prime members only (was $90), the Echo Show 5 is the smaller and sleeker model, compared to the bigger 10-inch Echo Show. Armed with a five-inch display, the Echo Show 5 is the perfect compact and lightweight companion to your nightstand. This smart home display can double as a digital alarm clock with Alexa built-in. In fact, Amazon has a wide range of personalized clock faces to choose from, so you can bring a little bit of your own personality to this device.
“This is the best alarm clock I’ve ever had,” wrote a delighted five-star reviewer. “The clock face is customizable and very easy to read from anywhere in the room. The screen has no distortion or discoloration from any angle, so it is easy to see from everywhere…Perfect for checking the time in the middle of the night.”
For Prime Day, Amazon has the latest Apple iPad Mini (Wi-Fi only model) on sale for $336—$63 off. That’s the cheapest price we’ve ever seen.
Armed with a 7.9-inch Retina display and 64GB of on-board storage, Apple’s latest and speediest mobile processor and newest version of iPadOS, the Apple iPad Mini boasts brighter and more realistic colors than previous models. And say goodbye to pixelated and blurry video chats. With a built-in eight-megapixel rear camera and seven-megapixel ‘selfie’ camera, FaceTiming while sheltering-in-place will be more enjoyable than ever.
At less than a pound, it’s incredibly lightweight and easy to hold in one hand. It’ll also stay juiced for up to 10 hours per charge—and Amazon shoppers can’t get enough. “Much faster. Love the screen—very clear and setup was a snap,” shared a five-star reviewer. “Best and most powerful small tablet on the market and runs all apps quickly and smoothly. Battery life is simply stunning.”
On sale for $175 (was $250)—which is their all-time lowest price ever—the Beats Powerbeats Pro have everything a great pair of wireless headphones should have, including a compact build, a nine-hour battery life, stylish and functional earhooks that provide a secure fit and, most importantly, top-notch sound with a wide audio design and heart-thumping bass. They also feature the brand’s “Fast Fuel” technology that gives about an hour-and-a-half of battery life on only a five-minute charge. Now that’s fast!
“First, I need to start with the fact that I’m extremely picky when it comes to headphones and I’ve bought over 20 pairs from Amazon from brands to no brands,” one enthusiastic reviewer shared. “These are the first pair of headphones that I’ve worn to the gym that have not needed a single adjustment! I have weird ears and no in-ear headphones have ever fit me this well. The seal is great and it just doesn’t move!”
Step up your TV-watching game with 4K. This Toshiba 55-inch Smart 4K Ultra HD—Fire TV Edition is on sale for $300, or $150 off, for Prime members only. That’s the lowest price we’ve ever seen for this 4K model.
