Apple AirPods Max.
These headphones have been rated 8/10 by Wired Recommends. Although the price fluctuated over the weekend, it has dropped to $429. Although they are still expensive, these wireless packages offer the best value for money. The soundstage is large and the bass is rich. There is also excellent noise cancellation. It’s an excellent set of controls, but the carrying case included isn’t very useful.
Headphones that cost more than $400 are a luxury. The discounted Sony headphones (9/10 WIRED Recommends), are not cheap but we love them. They’re also very affordable for the quality you get. These headphones have excellent sound quality, great noise cancellation, 30 hours battery life, and solid mics that can be used for Zoom calls.

Beats Powerbeats Pro
The Powerbeats Pro (8/10, WIRED Recommended) is the best choice for those with difficulty keeping earbuds in. Beats headphones are Apple-owned and sound decent.

Inside Weather Levi Armchair
It still looks great after a year of using it in different positions. I love the roomy and flat armrests—a good spot to park a cup of coffee—and the deep seat almost feels like the chair is asking you to curl up into a ball. The ash wood legs make it easy to clean and support your pet. There are many customization options available, but the price will rise the more you customize it.
This attractive and luxurious sofa is also extremely comfortable—WIRED writer Scott Gilbertson says it’s the most comfortable couch he’s ever sat on. The purchase process is as elegant as its design. To ensure you get the perfect sofa, you can modify and customize it to your liking. You can also order a complete book of fabric samples to make sure you have exactly what you need.
Lovesac’s sectional is a great option if you are able to afford the low price. You can adjust the shape to suit your space. If you need more room, you can also expand the size of the sectional. It’s sturdy and comfortable. But, it will arrive in large boxes, depending on how you configure the unit.

This is one of WIRED staff’s favorite rice cookers, and though it did get down to $85 during Prime Day 2020, it rarely gets that low—or even this low, to be fair. You should buy something that makes it easier to cook rice.
