Buy these headphones – they are among the best in the world

Today is going to be a tough day for my bank balance. I already bought dishwasher tablets – because we all need them, right? – and I have my eye on a new Henry Hoover, a laptop and now I really want these headphones.

Yes you could say they are a year old now and the Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones are better – but at this price I completely disagree and am really tempted to pull the cord and buy them.

They have incredible sound quality, comfort and I see so many other tech journalists using them that I feel like you couldn’t get a better endorsement.

This isn’t the cheapest it’s ever been – it dropped to £202 last September – and could get cheaper on Black Friday sales… Sony headphones for £209.

The LG Xboom speaker is a fun Bluetooth speaker you should check out, especially at £249

OK, I’ll say one thing: this is a robust speaker. Technically portable, it’s quite heavy and we found it takes five hours to charge in our review.

BUT it’s a lot of fun with the lights that can change, and if you decide to invest in some of them, the great outdoors becomes a lot of fun. As we noticed:

“While the XBoom 360 is one of the most unique wireless party speakers we’ve seen, is it worth the asking price? Yes, but only if you plan on holding the party in your own backyard.”

Well I don’t know about you but I only party exclusively in my backyard so this speaker is an easy win – and dropped from £399 to £249 for today.

Apple Watch 7 was the flagship product yesterday – that makes sense at this discount

We saw many of the top products selling well yesterday, but the Apple Watch 7, with its lowest-ever price drop, has dropped to just $279 in the US, and that’s pretty impressive.

I’ve been using the Watch 7 for a few months now, and it’s definitely my go-to. While I bought my wife a Watch SE – which is also on sale for just $219 on Prime Day deals – the Watch 7 has the larger, always-on display that I prefer.

Grab a Microsoft Surface Pro X for just £669

If you’re looking for a new laptop, this is a discount that just popped up – the Qualcomm-powered Surface Pro X is an interesting alternative to Intel chips, and it also has great cameras.

Please note that this does not come with the signature keyboard, so you will need to buy it separately (and dropped to £104 in Prime Day sales) – but this laptop/tablet is designed to charge a smartphone-like battery, and we found it manages around 9 hours in testing.

At £669 it’s worth a look if you want a portable Windows iPad replacement.

Let’s start with some UK deals that we think are worth checking out – the updated sales for Brits aren’t great, but there are are loads of popular sales that are still going to talk about too.

Good morning – I slept*, I feel good and refreshed** and I’m ready to take you through the heady world of Prime Day offers for Day 2.

More sales and discounts were released today, so if you didn’t find what you were looking for yesterday, there’s a chance you could get something new now – for example, we’re already seeing a new laptop business come out of Microsoft that’s pretty cool.

Let’s dive!
