I’m reeling from a weekend of “guess that pop.” Was it the endless stream of fireworks this time? Or gun-toting Texans spending their ammunition celebratorily in defiance of rules prohibiting such behavior? Thankfully, the guessing game didn’t last long — I decided to give my noise-canceling earbuds of choice a pretty serious workout. If you need an excellent pair to do the same during public or private disturbances, you should check out the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds II, which are on sale at Amazon and B&H Photo in black for a record-low price of $169.95 ($110 off).

Although Bose now has a more substantial pair sitting on our list of the best wireless earbuds in the QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds, the QuietComfort Earbuds II are still excellent. They lack some meaningful quality-of-life features like wireless charging and Bluetooth multipoint that other top options already offered when they launched in 2022. Those oversights made them a tough sell at their original $299.99 price, but Bose’s strong pedigree for great audio quality and impressive noise cancellation are well-represented here, and we can easily recommend them at today’s price.

Just a couple more post-Fourth deals

You can snap up a Tile Mate Bluetooth tracker in black for $12.49 each at Amazon and Best Buy, which is a full 50 percent off the usual cost and the lowest it’s been thus far. Today’s deal is on the more basic model, to be clear, which doesn’t have the user-replaceable batteries (it’ll last up to three years) and 400-foot range of the Tile Pro. It also lacks the precision finding you’d get with better Bluetooth trackers like Apple’s AirTags or Samsung’s SmartTag2. Tile’s advantage is that it works with almost any smartphone, and you can still sound an alarm if you’re within 250 feet of the item or view its last known location on a map whenever you’re further away.
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S9 Plus is great as an Android-based iPad alternative. The tablet comes with an iPad-like price tag, too, but you can get a 256GB Wi-Fi model for just $749 ($250 off) in beige at Amazon, which is a new all-time low price. It uses Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset and has a 12.4-inch 120Hz AMOLED display, comes with a stowable S Pen that charges by magnetically attaching to the rear, and works great for multimedia with four Dolby Atmos speakers and a 16:9 aspect ratio that’s ideal for entertainment (but maybe a bit odd for portable productivity).
