OnePlus's excellent ANC earbuds are on sale for the first time — act now

OnePlus introduced its first pair of wireless earbuds over a year ago, and while its initial efforts were decidedly lackluster, it turned things around shortly thereafter. The OnePlus Buds Pro in particular stand out because they're on par with the likes of the Galaxy Buds Pro in terms of sound quality, but at $150, they're more affordable.

And right now, you can get your hands on the Buds Pro for just $120, with the earbuds getting their first discount. That's $30 less than what they launched at three months ago, and a great overall value when you consider the quality on offer here.

The OnePlus Buds Pro do a good job emulating the AirPods Pro design, with a short stalk that houses the controls for adjusting volume and music playback. The buds nestle easily into your ear, and because they're so light, you don't feel any fatigue even after using them for five hours or more.

These earbuds also have excellent active noise cancellation and are able to tune out ambient noise in your surroundings. You can adjust the level for this mode as well, and honestly, it works just as well as the best wireless earbuds from Sony and Samsung. Calls are crystal-clear thanks to wind and noise-reduction algorithms that use AI, and in this area, you'll find zero issues.

There's plenty to like when it comes to sound quality as well. These earbuds have a very bass-heavy sound, so if you listen to genres that focus on the low-end, you will love the sound profile here. There's also a customized hearing test that will tune the sound based on what your ears are able to hear, and I found that to be a very useful addition.

$120 at Amazon

With the Buds Pro, OnePlus has managed to deliver earbuds that go up against the best that Samsung and Sony have to offer. They sound absolutely incredible, have a lightweight design, excellent noise isolation, IP55 water resistance, and wireless charging. When it comes to value, it's hard to find anything quite as good.

And then there's fast charging when you need it. Like its phones, the Buds Pro come with Warp Charge that delivers up to 10 hours of music playback for the case with a 10-minute charge. There's Qi wireless charging as well, and the earbuds last for five hours on a full charge. The earbuds connect over Bluetooth 5.2, stream using the hi-res LHDC codec, and even have IP55 water resistance, making them a great overall option.

These earbuds tick all the right boxes, and even at $150, they offer a good value. With the discount to $120, these are an easy recommendation, and you should get your hands on the Buds Pro if you're looking for high-end earbuds that give you the best value.

The hidden cost of food delivery

Noah Lichtenstein Contributor Share on Twitter Noah Lichtenstein is the founder and managing partner of Crossover , a diversified private technology fund backed by institutional investors, technology execs and professional athletes and entertainers. More posts by this contributor What Studying Students Teaches Us About Great Apps I’ll admit it: When it comes to food, I’m lazy. There are dozens of great dining options within a few blocks of my home, yet I still end up ordering food through delivery apps four or five times per week. With the growing coronavirus pandemic closing restaurants and consumers self-isolating, it is likely we will see a spike in food delivery much like the 20% jump China reported during the peak of its crisis. With the food delivery sector rocketing toward a projected $365 billion by the end of the decade, I’m clearly not the only one turning to delivery apps even before the pandemic hit. Thanks to technology (and VC funding) we can get a ri

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.

iOS 14 Favorites Widget: How to Make a Replacement With Shortcuts

In iOS 14 , Apple overhauled widgets and introduced an option for adding ‌widgets‌ to the Home Screen , but in the process, a well-loved Favorites widget that existed in iOS 13 was removed. The Favorites widget let users set certain contacts and contact methods as favorites that were easily accessible, so you could, for example, add a favorite option for messaging Eric or calling Dan, with those actions executed with a tap. Why the Favorites widget was removed is a mystery and it could be a simple oversight with Apple planning to reintroduce it later, but for now, those who relied on the widget can recreate its functionality with Shortcuts. It takes some effort, but it may be worth the time investment if you often relied on your Favorites. Creating a Favorites Shortcut Making a shortcut that replicates the behavior of the Favorites widget isn't too tough, but if you want multiple favorite options, you'll need to create a separate shortcut for each one in the Shortcuts
