If you’re looking for a pair of wireless noise-cancelling headphones but don’t want to shell out the big bucks, today’s Dealmaster should be of interest. Our roundup today is headlined by a joint low price on
Anker’s Soundcore Life Q (Bluetooth headphones) , which are down to $ from an already affordable street price of $ 94.

Though we don’t have a formal review of the Soundcore Life Q on Ars, we have tested them for future gift and buying guides and can verify that they’re good value for a low-cost set of noise-cancelling cans. To be clear, they’re still a clear step (or three) down from premium pairs like Sony’s WH – (XM3) or (Bose’s Noise Canceling Headphones) , particularly with regard to the strength of their active noise cancellation. They just aren’t going to cut out as much noise in a plane or a busy office. Their bass-heavy sound isn’t as nuanced as those higher-end options, either. But they’re far from bad in either regard. They’re comfortable for a headphone in any price range, and their battery gets more than 37 hours on a charge, which is excellent. If you want a comfy pair of headphones that can still provide decent ANC in a pinch, you could do way worse for less than $ , particularly in a market where sub – $ 198 options are usually worth avoiding altogether. If you don’t need a new set of headphones, we have plenty more deals on Logitech mice, the latest Pokemon games, lots of Apple devices, and more. You can check out the full list below.

Before that, though, the Dealmaster also would like to direct your attention to this fancy-looking box below:

    

                 

            

The Dealmaster has launched its very own newsletter! Sign up to receive a shorter, tightly curated list of the very best tech deals on the Web — no nonsense, direct to your inbox, and often before they make it to the Ars homepage.                        You may have seen this floating in a number of our recent deals roundups, but today we’d like to acknowledge that the Dealmaster has formally launched its own newsletter. In short, it’s an abbreviated version of the deals roundups we post twice a week here on Ars proper. We highlight four to six tech deals that we find exceptionally noteworthy and go a little more in-depth on why those offers are worthwhile, making sure to note any caveats to the discounts along the way. (Much like what we’ve done with today’s Anker headphone deal, for instance.) At the moment, we’re sending this newsletter out once a week on Friday afternoons. If you’d like to be a little more informed on the better sales happening in the tech world, consider signing up — sometimes, we’ll have deals there that don’t make it to the Ars homepage at all. As always, our goal is to bring you useful buying advice with minimal BS. Now, with that shameless plug out of the way, on to today’s deals.
