We are just days away from the big-time early Black Friday sales at this point. With just about every major flier in hand now, we have quite a good idea of where the best deals will fall in 2019. This year’s best Black Friday headphone deals will be scattered across Walmart, Best Buy, Staples, Amazon, and even Kohl’s, while we are expecting some of the smaller outlets to get competitive as well. Head below for a look at the best upcoming deals from Beats, Bose, JBL, Jabra, and more.
Apple’s Beats brand this week launched a new Studio3 Wireless NBA Collection. As part of this collection, Apple is now selling NBA-themed Beats for six teams. They’re available today on Apple’s website for $350, which is slightly more expensive than a normal pair of Studio3 headphones.
Apple has launched its latest special edition Beats headphones today together with designer brand Balmain with new versions of its Powerbeats 3 Wireless Earphones and Beats Studio Wireless Over-Ear Headphones. The companies have also enlisted a celebrity endorsement from Kylie Jenner who appears in ads for the headphones on Apple’s product pages and elsewhere.

Every year, Apple puts together a beautiful-looking holiday gift guide on Apple.com, packed with the latest iOS devices, Macs, and accessories people would love to receive as gifts. The hitch is that Apple’s prices are almost always full retail, with no discounting, so it’s easy to spend anywhere from $5 to $300 more per item than if you just shopped around.
This year, 9to5Toys and 9to5Mac have done the bargain hunting for you. We’ve found savings on virtually every item on Apple’s holiday shopping list, which this year is organized into 6 sections: Gaming, Photography, Music, Fitness, Learning and Travel. Using the links below, you can save up to $350 on a new 12″ MacBook, between $20 and $80 on many third-party accessories, and up to $130 on a pair of Beats headphones…

There’s no other way to slice it — streaming services are the future of music. The days of walking into a CD store (remember Sam Goody?) are long gone and most people don’t even bother with iTunes downloads anymore. And as of right now, Spotify is running away with the streaming music crown.

Target’s offer of a free $100 gift card with the purchase of an iPad Air is the best deal of the bunch. However, there’s a really good chance we could see an updated model released at Apple’s rumored October 16th event. If Apple does release a new iPad Air model, it will most likely be priced at $500 and it most certainly won’t include a free gift card. Reports from 9to5Mac have so far pointed towards the new iPad Air only being a slight upgrade over the current model:
The Polaroid brand is best known for its instant camera and film products but most recently, the miniature Polaroid Cube camera is getting all of the attention. Officially revealed just this week, the tiny, cubed shaped camera is designed to sit somewhere between a full on action cam and a more casual solution.

Today, Ultimate Ears has announced that its well regarded UE Boom Bluetooth speaker has won a 2014 Gold International Design Excellence Award (IDEA) from the Industrial Designers Society of America (ISDA). Sitting atop the entertainment category, this marks the very first IDEA for Ultimate Ears as a brand but the fourth design award for the UE BOOM itself. The award is given out to excellence in product design, sustainability, packaging, concept and more. Today’s announcement points out that only 27 of the 2,000 entries received a Gold IDEA this year.
The popular Bluetooth speaker has also received great user reviews and has recently seen a $20 price drop on Amazon, Best Buy and the official UE site. While we have seen the unit for less, they rarely go on sale and not usually with all the color options available. Apple.com is still charging $199.95. Outside of pre-owned options and sketchy retailers, this is the current lowest price available.
The BOOM is designed to “change standard one-directional sound,” with a 360-degree experience that blasts sound out in every direction. It also features a 50 foot range to wirelessly change songs, adjust the volume and take phone calls. You’ll find 15 hours of battery life and the possibility of linking two of them together via the UE BOOM mobile app. For a complete rundown, head over to our review of the Logitech UE Boom and Mini Boom.
