Sony BRAVIA 65-inch 4K Smart OLED TV with HDR $1,798 (Was $2,495)

If you’re a next-gen console gamer, 4K movie fanatic, or just someone who wants the most futureproofed tech, the Sony BRAVIA XR-65A80J is the TV for you. The 64.5-inch 4K OLED screen supports HDR10, HLG, and Dolby Vision for improved contrast and brightness with HDR content, while the “Cognitive Processor” in the TV makes sure all the motion across that screen is crisp and blur-free. It supports Google Chromecast/Assistant, Apple Homekit/AirPlay 2, and Amazon Alexa for voice commands and content casting. Plus it’s ready for next-generation consoles like the PlayStation 5 with support for ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) and VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) via future firmware update for the 48 Gbps and 4K @ 120 Hz HDMI 2.1 ports.

Sennheiser IE 300 wired in-ear monitor headphones $199.95 ($299.95)

If music gets you wired, and you don’t mind audio gear doing the same, the Sennheiser IE 300 earphones are a new take on an old-school approach to audio purity. There’s nothing—no Bluetooth or active noise-cancelling features, etc.—sitting between you and rich, emotive playback. As long as you have a 3.5mm headphone jack, you have a direct connection to your favorite recordings. Despite being small in size, these earphones provide ample passive isolation and deliver big, punchy bass alongside a full-bodied midrange and crisp, accurate highs. If you’ve wanted to dip your toes into the audiophile world, the savings on these will be music to your ears.

The Venu 2 features a colorful, touch-sensitive AMOLED display that’s as easy to read as it is to navigate.

When asked to sum up his experience with the Enclave Audio CineHome PRO system, our surround sound reviewer put it like this: The Enclave hi-res wireless home theater system strikes all the right cords. If you’re looking for surround sound but you don’t want to be surrounded by cables, the Enclave CineHome PRO system uses cutting-edge WiSA (Wireless Speaker and Audio Association) technology to offer you big sound with little hassle. It’s the perfect step up from a soundbar if you want to avoid finding the space and budget for receivers, etc., needed with a traditional 5.1 system.
