Sony’s WH-1000XM4 are cheaper now than during Prime Day

Published

on

One of the best deals of Prime Day has returned at Newegg. Sony’s WH-1000XM4 wireless noise-canceling headphones in black are down to $284 instead of $350. This actually beats the $298 pricing at Amazon and Best Buy by $14, though, unlike those retailers’ deal earlier this week, this one doesn’t include a gift card. That’s no matter if you’re just looking for the lowest price — this is it.

Sony’s WH-1000XM4 improve on an already stellar XM3 formula of excellent sound, effective noise cancellation, long-lasting battery life, USB-C charging, and lots of comfort. In my colleague Chris Welch’s review, he praised this model for two key improvements over the previous model: updated mics for clearer call quality and the ability to connect to two sources simultaneously via Bluetooth.

Also in the realm of wireless headphones, Jabra’s Elite 75t wireless earbuds are $30 off their usual price at Amazon and Best Buy. Normally $180, they’re $150 in titanium black or gold / beige colorways. This model has been cheaper before, but it’s still a good price. Plus, Jabra recently announced these will soon get an active noise cancellation feature patched in for free.

The remastered version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 is discounted on both PS4 and Xbox One. Already cheaper than most full-priced games, this price drop lowers the game from $40 to $34. It’s not a huge discount, but if you were waiting for a slight cut to the cost, now’s your chance to dip back into these excellent remakes — complete with most of their beloved original soundtracks.

Razer’s Blade 15 Base model in the silver colorway with a 4K OLED panel is cheaper at Best Buy than it is directly through Razer. Normally $2,300, it’s $2,000. In addition to the OLED, it features a six-core Intel Core i7-10750H processor, 16GB of RAM, Nvidia’s RTX 2070 Max-Q graphics chip, and a 512GB SSD. These specs are good for gaming, and they’ll look fantastic on the OLED. However, running games at 4K will thoroughly tax this machine, so if you want a fast frame rate, you’ll likely need to lower the resolution of each game down to 1440p or 1080p. This model also lacks the SD card reader found in the Blade 15 Advanced model.

Lastly, Daily Steals is offering a discount on the second-generation AirPods with wired charging case that matches the Prime Day deal of $115. To get this price, enter the code VERGEPODS at checkout. Like the AirPods Pro deal we featured yesterday, these are new / open-box but arrive with their retail packaging and all original accessories. These AirPods also include a one-year warranty through Daily Steals.

Apple will replace AirPods Pro for free with faulty noise cancellation, static or crackling

Published

on

Today, exactly one year after Apple first launched the AirPods Pro — and thus the same day the very first AirPods Pro owners will see their one-year warranties expire — Apple has launched a repair program that offers free repairs or replacements for another whole year if your AirPods Pro experience issues with noise cancellation or static.

Specifically, Apple will fix:

Crackling or static sounds that increase in loud environments, with exercise or while talking on the phone

Active Noise Cancellation not working as expected, such as a loss of bass sound, or an increase in background sounds, such as street or airplane noise

Apple says only a “small percentage of AirPods Pro” are affected by the issues, but it apparently wasn’t just an early batch — Apple says affected units were manufactured “before October 2020,” meaning every AirPods Pro ever made might be eligible. That’s quite a recall if so. Apple says it will repair faulty AirPods Pro for two years after you first buy them.

We’ve heard complaints about degraded noise cancellation before, and at least one Verge editor has replaced their AirPods Pro under warranty. It’s nice to hear that Apple isn’t just cutting buyers off as soon as that warranty expires.
