Ready to save some cash on your tech buys? Then you've come to the right place. Our friends at sister site gdgt track price drops on thousands of products every day, and twice a week they feature some of the best deals they've found right here. But act fast! Many of these are limited-time offers, and won't last long.
Today we have not one but two headsets going for half their regular prices. The Klipsch Image E1 In-Ear Headphones are good for listening to media on the go, while the Jabra Wave Bluetooth Headset offers a less conspicuous design than most other earpieces we've seen. Also, in especially timely news, it's worth noting that Sprint is offering new customers the iPhone 5c for free and the iPhone 5s for $99.99. Join gdgt and add the gadgets you're shopping for to your "Want" list. Every time there's a price cut, you'll get an email alert!
Few of us want to be that person who roams the hallways barking into a headset, but it often pays off -- for parents of young kids and busybodies alike. The Jabra Wave's slim design makes this more discreet than most Bluetooth earpieces, and the three-layer wind noise protection should ensure your calls don't get drowned out when you're talking on the phone in public. The headset's car charger is also a welcome bonus.
Today, this pair of comfortable, noise-isolating headphones is available at a price you'd normally expect to see for low-quality or refurbished models. Amazon reviewers praise the E1's sound quality as well as the cord's ability to stay untangled, but a few have complained about a crackling sound when the wires move. Still, Amazon's forgiving return policy means you should have no problem getting a refund if the headphones don't live up to expectations.
Price: $99.99 (regularly $135). Free shipping / Prime.
Seagate's Backup Plus drive pleased reviewers with its USB 3.0 transfer speeds, which allow you to back up your treasure trove of music, pictures and video without wasting much time. Then again, the drive is a bit dated compared to fuller-featured models. If you're looking for something higher-end, consider going with the Seagate Wireless Plus instead.
ASUS R704A-RH51 17.3-inch Notebook
Price: $499 (regularly $629). Free shipping.
You can find more powerful laptops out there, but this middle-of-the-road ASUS model offers decent specs for the price of a low-end system. With a last-gen Intel Core i5-3210M processor, it's hardly the fastest machine in its class, but it's more than capable enough for students and anyone with basic needs. For the money, it also comes with 750GB of storage -- enough to handle most people's digital libraries. Take note of the the unwieldy size, though: with a 17-inch screen, it'll take up your entire lap, and maybe part of your desk too.
Grand Theft Auto V with a $25 Dell Gift Card
While discounts on the hottest games are tough to come by, Dell's Grand Theft Auto V deal makes for one sweet add-on. Rockstar's hyper-violent, hypersexual pop culture satire has drawn nearly universal praise from critics, including a rave from our pals at Joystiq. In short, you toggle between three criminals who engage in parallel and intertwined tales of mayhem. And the single-player campaign is only half the package: the multiplayer component, Grand Theft Auto Online, is set to launch October 1st at no additional cost.
Madden NFl 25 and Gillette Razor Refills?!?!
Price: $41.50 (game alone is regularly $50). Free shipping/Prime.
EA, Gillette and Amazon are getting weird and desperate here in a scheme to unload copies of Madden NFL 25. Dubbed "Shave and Save," the promotion pairs the game on Xbox 360 or PS3 with Gillette Fusion Manual Proglide Manual Men's Razor Blade Refills and knocks $30 off the total price. Since the razors run for $21.74, the offer essentially doles out an $8 discount on the football sim.
