Amazon offers the Sony Xperia Ear Duo True Wireless Earbuds for $199.99 shipped. Normally selling for $280, that’s good for a nearly 30% discount, the first major price drop that we’ve tracked, and a new all-time low at Amazon. Sony’s Ear Duo True Wireless Earbuds feature a built-in smart assistant with personalized voice alerts as well as head gesture control for hands-free interaction. They also offer four hours of battery life per charge. Rated 4+ stars from over 70% of customers and you can learn more in our announcement coverage

If you don’t need the premium features like voice alerts and gesture controls, Anker’s Soundcore Truly-Wireless Earbuds are a much more affordable option at $45. Sure you’re also going to miss out on the more high-end build quality and sound output, but it’s nearly one-fourth the price of Sony’s.
