It’s felt like Black Friday has been upon us for the past few weeks — but now we’re actually only a couple hours from the biggest shopping day of the year. 2020 has been a different year for many reasons, but retailers have continued with a trend that’s been going on for the past few years: throwing a number of Black Friday deals live on the night of Thanksgiving. We expect to see even more deals crop up tomorrow, but we’ve gathered the best tech deals we could find that are available right now below.
The best sounding Apple earbuds, the AirPods Pro, are down to $169. These buds up the ante in almost every way — they fit and sound better than standard AirPods and they have the same solid battery life. Apple also added active noise-cancellation with Transparency Mode, which lets you hop in and out of conversations without missing a beat. Keep an eye on these over the next day or two — they’re currently out of stock at Walmart, but you can still grab them on Amazon.
The original Lenovo Smart Clock is on sale for $35, which is an all-time low. This is one of the most compact Google Assistant speakers you can get, and it’s small display makes it extra handy as a smart alarm clock. We gave it a score of 87 for its charming design, sunrise alarm feature and lack of a camera for extra privacy. Also, the simpler version of the original, the Lenovo Smart Clock Essential is half off for Black Friday, bringing it down to $25.
Our favorite pair of ANC headphones, the Sony WH-1000XM4, is on sale for $278, an all-time low since they debuted a few months ago. We gave them a score of 94 for their excellent active noise-cancellation tech, immersive sound quality and multi-device connectivity.
HP has the Envy x360 15 laptop for $200 off, bringing it to $669. And you’re getting a pretty powerful model, too — this one has a Core i5-1135G7 processor, 8GB of RAM, and a 256GB SSD with 16GB of Optane memory. It also comes with an FHD touchscreen and an included active pen, the latter of which typically costs extra when you’re buying a convertible laptop.
Sony’s WHCH710N earned a spot on our list of favorite wireless headphones for their affordability, but they’re a steal at this Black Friday price of $88. Normally $198, these cans have dropped to $88 before but they’ve never been this low. We like them for their excellent, automatic noise-cancellation technology, good sound quality and 35-hour battery life.
