You can also take advantage of steep savings on JBL’s Charge 5 Bluetooth speaker, the entry-level iPad, and a number of great PC games.
If you’ve spent any time scouring the endless sea of headphones on the web recently, you won’t be surprised to hear that the wireless earbuds space is constantly evolving. Sony appears to be prepping a successor to our favorite pair of earbuds, the WF-1000XM4, while Nothing is set to launch its upcoming Ear 2 in less than a week. But if you’re looking to pick up a pair of earbuds today, you can grab Google’s Pixel Buds Pro at Wellbots for just $145 ($55 off) when you use promo code 55THEVERGE at checkout.
Google’s flagships earbuds offer quite a bit over their flawed predecessor. They feature impressive noise cancellation and good sound quality, and if you’re a Pixel user, they offer easier controls and support for head-tracking spatial audio. Plus, they offer multipoint Bluetooth connectivity, which allows you to connect the earbuds to two devices at the same time — something Apple and numerous other brands still don’t offer.

Right now, Verge readers can buy them at Wellbots for just $145 with promo code 55THEVERGE.
Spring hasn’t technically sprung yet, but that hasn’t stopped Steam from kicking off its annual Spring Sale, which is set to run through March 23rd at 10AM PT. There are literally thousands of fantastic PC titles on offer right now, from AAA mainstays like Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales (now $33.49) to surprise indie hits like Vampire Survivors (now $3.99) and Stray ($23.99). You can even pick up Hi-Fi Rush, a glorious new rhythm-action game from the developers behind The Evil Within, for $26.99 ($3 off), or grab a Steam Deck with 64GB of storage on sale starting at $359.10 (10 percent off).
Speaking of spring and picnic weather, JBL’s Charge 5 is down to around $140 at Amazon, Best Buy, and Walmart right now. It’s a great pick if you’re looking for a beefy Bluetooth speaker to take with you to the park or anywhere outside your home, namely because it offers robust sound and up to 20 hours of continuous playback. What’s more, the IP67-rated speaker is conveniently outfitted with a USB-A port, which means you can use it to top off your smartphone, tablet, and other external devices without having to step inside.
