Our Tuesday deals kick off with the first substantial discount we’ve seen on the Sony WH-1000XM5 noise canceling headphones. The original price for the XM5 headphones was $399.99, but Woot has reduced them to just $339.99. If you’re okay with settling for Woot’s 90-day limited warranty instead of Sony’s one-year warranty, this is definitely a deal worth checking out. While the XM5 headphones don’t offer significant changes from the previous version, the XM4, they still include some of the best noise canceling capabilities you’ll find in headphones, in addition to improved sound quality and better voice calling performance.

After some of our Xbox Series S deals from last week, you can currently get the Xbox Series S for less than retail on eBay, courtesy of Antonline. It may not come with games, but right now you can get the Series S for around $238 if you use the code LABOR DAYS SAVE at the cash register. This is the best price we’ve seen for the standalone, digital-exclusive console that typically retails for $299.99. The Series X may be missing the disc drive and playing lower resolution games, but the Series S is still a great way for GamePass subscribers to access their titles in their living room.

Moving on to phones, Amazon is currently running a promotion called “Android Days” with discounts on some excellent Android devices, some of which are on sale at the lowest price ever. Google’s excellent mid-range option, the Pixel 6A, launched just a few months ago for $449.99, but is currently on sale for $369.99 in its black and green liveries. The 6A may not have the same high refresh rate screen as its more expensive counterparts, but it retains the same Google Tensor CPU and has excellent battery life. Read our review.
Another excellent Android deal includes: the unlocked model of the last generation OnePlus 9, which is currently discounted to $379.99 at Amazon in its black and white livery. Originally available for $729, the OnePlus 9’s performance may pale in comparison to modern flagship phones, but the SnapDragon 888 CPU is still enough to outperform some of today’s midrange options. Some of the other specs you get at this accessible price point include a 6.55-inch 1080p OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 50-megapixel ultra-wide camera. If you’re not married to the Apple ecosystem and want to try an Android device outside of the realms of Samsung or Google, this deal on the OnePlus 9 is worth checking out. Read our review.
If you don’t mind the green colorway, you can currently buy the 44mm LTE compatible Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 for $169.99 from Woot instead of the usual price of $329.99. While the Watch 4 is sadly limited to the Samsung ecosystem of applications, it still manages to deliver a well-rounded wearable experience for $170. The Watch 4 offers excellent performance and a robust set of exercise stats that track 95 support different types of exercises. Read our review.
All eyes may be on the recently announced Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2, but not everyone is willing to spend $155 on a pair of earbuds. Satisfying, Woot currently has the standard Galaxy Buds 2, discounted at $74.99 from their original price of $149.99. The Buds 2 have remained one of our favorite noise canceling earbuds, thanks to their excellent sound quality and noise cancellation. If you’re willing to accept Woot’s 90-day limited warranty, this is an excellent deal on Samsung’s last-generation earbuds. Read our review.
