He Beats Studio Buds Plus launched just three months ago, yet they are already on sale in black for just $129.95 ($40 off) on Woot, which is an additional $20 off the sale price we saw during Prime Day.
The Beats Studio Buds Plus are a much-needed revamp of the original 2021 Beats Studio Buds. They offer better sound, better noise cancellation, and longer battery life, letting you listen for up to six hours per charge (or nine with ANC on). off). They’re also a great option if you own both Apple and Android devices, thanks to a proprietary chip that lets you take advantage of native software features on both platforms. This enables one-touch pairing regardless of your operating system, along with the ability to use Apple’s Find My and Google’s Find My Device. Now if only Woot were offering the fancy translucent option instead of just black.

Fortunately, if you’re looking for a device to enhance your streaming setup, Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K Max is for sale in Amazon, Best Buyand Aim for $26.99 ($28 off), nearly matching its all-time low.
At its core, the Fire Stick 4K Max is a simple 4K streamer that takes full advantage of Amazon’s virtual assistant, Alexa. It takes the same content-forward approach as Google’s Chromecast – a welcome approach, to be sure – while offering a number of upgrades that make it worth spending an extra $5 over the standard model. The new device is 40 percent faster, for example, and offers Wi-Fi 6 for better wireless performance. The ads on the home screen and the focus on Amazon content are still a bit much, but that’s also the price you pay if you want to pick up a solid streaming device for under $30.
