While Sony’s WH-1000XM4 are definitely the best headphones you can buy right now, the company’s WH-CH710N offers the most bang for your buck. This more affordable model debuted in April for $200, but we’ve already seen it on sale for much less — sometimes as low as $98. The CH710N offers respectable sound quality and capable ANC. Neither feature is as good as what you’ll get on the 1000XM4, but at this price they’re hard to beat. What’s more, these headphones are also lightweight and comfy, so if the person on your list needs to wear them for hours at a time, they won’t become a burden.

Logitech Launches Affordable Bluetooth Computer Speakers For Home Workers

Anyone who has spent time working from home will know that the speakers on the average corporate laptop are totally inadequate. Not only can you not play and enjoy music while using a laptop’s speakers, but they’re not even good enough for Zoom meetings and Skype calls.

Of course, many people have opted for using a headset into the laptop to make up for its shortcomings, but some people still don’t like to wear a pair of headphones for the best part of the day, and it can be difficult if you’re listening out for the doorbell or maybe there are kids in the house that you need to keep an ear on.
