Save $ 150 off the original price of Sony’s 1000XM4 headphones on eBay


I usually prefer to highlight the best deals you can get on new technology, but sometimes a refurbished deal is good enough to hit the mark. Sony’s 1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones haven’t dropped below $ 278 new (down from their usual $ 349 price), but a well-regarded eBay seller is offering them in “as good as new” condition with all original accessories included for $ 208. And with eBay’s listing code PICKCR5 used at checkout, you can get an additional 5 percent discount, totaling $ 198 excluding tax.

If you’re in the US, buying refurbished tech from eBay isn’t such a bad idea as the retailer backs it up with a two-year warranty through Allstate. If you encounter a problem with your purchase outside the returns window or the seller’s warranty, you can file a claim for repair or replacement if repair is not possible.

In case you missed it Half-life: Alyx for VR is 40 percent off in celebration of its release about a year ago. Usually $ 60, you can pick it up from Steam for $ 36 until March 31. You need a VR headset to play it, of course. May I suggest the Oculus Quest 2 which starts at $ 299? The headset plugs into your PC to act like a Rift, but for a wireless alternative you can play by purchasing the Virtual Desktop app for the Quest 2 Half-life: Alyx via Wi-Fi with no cables connected to your PC.
