These are the best headphones (8/10, WIRED recommends). The price fluctuated over the weekend, but dropped to $ 429. They’re always pricey, but if you’re looking for the best quality in a wireless plan, that’s it. There’s rich bass, a great soundstage, and stellar noise cancellation. The controls are great, but it’s a shame the included carrying case isn’t very useful.

Target, Amazon, Walmart, Best buy

Paying over $ 400 for headphones is a luxury. These discounted Sony headphones (9/10, WIRED Recommend) aren’t exactly cheap either, but they’re our favorite wireless cans for most people because they’re reasonably priced for what you get. There’s great sound quality, great noise cancellation, 30 hours of battery life, and solid mics for Zoom calls.

Amazon, Best buy

Are you trying to keep your budget low? Stick with those Jabra cans. They don’t have a ton of features, but they’re comfortable, have great mics, and get a staggering 50 hours of playback on a single charge. You hardly ever need to reach for the charger.

Beats Powerbeats Pro


Target, Amazon

Powerbeats Pro (8/10, WIRED recommends) are the best workout option for people who have trouble keeping headphones in their ears. They sound pretty good and work great with iOS devices since Beats is owned by Apple.

Amazon (for Prime members only), 1 more

These headphones from the lesser-known audio brand 1More are one of our favorites. They’re extremely comfortable and IPX5 sweat-resistant, and they sound as good as heads two or three times the price.

After a year of sitting in different positions on this velvet chair, it manages to look like new. I love the roomy, flat armrests – a good place to park a cup of coffee – and the deep seat almost makes the chair feel like you’re asking you to curl up into a ball. It doesn’t attract too much animal hair, and the ash wood legs are as strong and sturdy as a tree. There are a number of customization options out there, although the more you tweak, the higher the price will go.

Modern made to measure

This attractive and luxurious sofa is also extremely comfortable – WIRED writer Scott Gilbertson says it’s the most comfortable sofa he’s ever sat on. The buying process is just as elegant as the design. You can customize and adjust the sofa to your liking and even order a full fabric sample book to make sure you get exactly what you want.


If you can handle the discounted price and wanted a sectional, then consider this one from Lovesac. You can customize the overall shape to suit your living space, and you can make it larger later if you find yourself in a place with more space. It is comfortable and solid; just know that depending on how you set it up, it will arrive in various large boxes.

This blender is so good it just might convert you into a blender just like it converted WIRED Gear reviews Joe Ray and Scott Gilbertson. The motor of this mixer is powerful, and the machine will probably last a very long time. This is the best price we have seen this year.

Atlas Café-Club

Fresh beans are arguably the most important factor in making a better cup of coffee. If you usually drink a cup of coffee (or two) each morning, then a subscription for a new bag of beans each month is a good idea. We love Atlas Coffee Club because it features single-sourced beans from around the world, roasted in Austin, Texas, right before they reach your door. The bags have a fun design and you get a postcard and country of origin notes with the beans. New subscribers can withdraw $ 15 on the first bag (which basically means it’s free), but anyone can withdraw up to $ 55 on gift subscriptions.

Pet lover? Grounds and Hounds donates 20% of its profits to animal shelters. It also helps to have great beans, especially dark roasts. You can get deliveries every one, two, four, or eight weeks.


It’s one of WIRED’s staff favorite rice cookers, and while it came down to $ 85 during Prime Day 2020, it’s rarely that low, if not that low, to be fair. If you cook a lot of rice, you should get something that makes this process easier.


This is our favorite concentrated cleaning kit. It cleans well and the glass bottles are heavy with silicone bottoms to keep them in place. Plus, they smell great.
