Headphones are great for blocking out the world and allowing you to enjoy your favorite music, podcast or audiobook. Sometimes the outside world can bleed through, though, and the sound of planes, traffic and crowds can affect your listening experience. If you want to avoid all the noise, consider headphones with active noise cancellation (ANC) to really get the job done.
Offers for tablets, smartphones, mobile accessories
There are countless tablets on the market, but which one is right for you? Whether you’re looking at an iPad or one of the many Android models available, we’ve got the key factors to consider when shopping, along with some of the top tablets we’ve tested.
Deals on computers and accessories
A laptop won’t revolutionize the details of your life like a smartphone. You can’t easily escape to kill time in the elevator, capture a breathtaking sunset, or pay for a cup of coffee.
But in the years since smartphones took over all those jobs, laptops have honed their own talents. Amazing battery life and breathtaking displays are now commonplace if you look in the right place for them. Graphics to play games in full HD are affordable. And those basic old-school security features you won’t find on any mobile device, like touchpads and full-sized keyboards, tend to get better with almost every generation.
