Today’s Dealmaster is headlined by a nice discount on Sony’s excellent WH-1000XM4 noise-canceling headphones, which are currently down to $278 at various retailers. We’ve seen this deal pop up a handful of times over the past year, but it remains about $45 off the usual street price we typically see online, and it matches the lowest price we’ve tracked from a reputable retailer. In general, we continue to think the WH-1000XM4s are the best wireless noise-canceling headphones for most people, as they pack exceptional noise-canceling strength, a good 30+ hours of battery life, a comfortable fit, USB-C charging, multidevice connectivity, and an enjoyable sound that’s bass-forward by default but can be customized in a useful companion app.

Beyond that, our deals roundup includes good offers on a few quality fitness trackers from Fitbit and Garmin, low prices on recommended video games like Super Mario 3D World + Bowser’s Fury and Control, the latest Amazon Echo Dot speaker, and much more. You can check out our full curated list below.
