The Echo Buds 2023 are a good AirPods 3 alternative for less

David Carnoy/CNET

Amazon’s 2023 Echo Buds impressed me in a few ways that I wasn’t expecting. For starters, they sound good for inexpensive open earbuds, delivering decent clarity and ample bass. But they also have a robust feature set, including multipoint Bluetooth pairing, hands-free Alexa and ear-detection sensors that pause your audio when you take one or both buds out of your ears. 

Their sound falls short of that of Apple’s AirPods 3, which deliver fuller bass and overall fuller sound. But the AirPods 3 cost around $150 and offer only about 15% to 20% better audio. In short, if you’re looking for open earbuds — or “semi-open” as these types of earbuds are sometimes called — the Echo Buds are good value at their $50 list price and even easier to recommend at $35.

CNET’s Dave Watsky writes: “Herbs are about the fastest way to make a good meal or cocktail great. A reliable smart garden will provide you a steady source of basil, mint, parsley and thyme no matter what the weather outside looks like. If you hurry, you can score AeroGarden’s Harvest pod garden for just $50 (normally $165) during day two of Amazon Prime Day. If you’re counting, this marks the lowest price we’ve seen for the popular grower on Amazon in several years CNET’s shopping team has been tracking them.”

This is about as good a deal as you can get on a 65W dual USB-C charger (with an additional USB-A port) that allows you to charge multiple devices at the same time or a single laptop. It uses a GaN (Gallium nitride) chip so it’s more compact than your typical 65W charger from a few years ago. Though I haven’t used this particular Ugreen charger, I’ve used others and have never had an issue with them.

Released in 2022, the fifth-generation Echo Dot with clock is on sale for half price. It won’t wow you with its sound quality for music (it’s a little short on bass), but it’s a good bedside companion that doubles as a voice-enabled clock radio that can tell you what the weather forecast is and control your Alexa-enabled smart home devices.

The Fire TV Stick 4K Max is the best Amazon Fire TV Stick right now, with zippy performance and support for Wi-Fi 6 and nearly all the latest playback standards, including Dolby Vision. While the Fire TV platform does feature a few too many ads for our tastes, this is a great deal on the fastest Amazon Fire TV Stick at more than half off. Oh, and the built-in support for VPNs makes this great for maximizing viewing options on streaming services.


Ring makes a variety of security cameras and they’re all on sale for Prime Day (yes, Amazon owns Ring). We’ve reviewed the Ring Stick Up Cam, which is down to $60 (from $100), but if you’re looking for something more entry-level, the Indoor Cam (2nd gen) with 1080p video capture, is a good deal at 50% off. It was released earlier this year.

The ESR MagSafe Wallet 2-way stand is displayed against a yellow background.


This ESR wallet snaps onto the back of your phone and serves as a two-way adjustable stand so you can watch your phone in portrait or landscape. Plus, this nifty device has a finger loop for a secure hold, it works with Apple’s Find My so you can track it if it’s within 50 meters and if fits up to three cards for easy access. 

Baseus’ 2-in-1 wireless car mount charger is a MagSafe compatible wireless car charger that should fit most but not all car vents. What makes it a good deal at this price is that it comes with an integrated 40-watt cigarette lighter power adapter that has a USB-A port for charging a passenger’s device, whether it’s an iPhone or Android smartphone (no cable is included for charging that second device). 

While the wireless charging is rated for up to 15-watt charging, you’ll only get 7.5-watt charging speeds with an iPhone. But the magnet is strong, so if you have a MagSafe case on your device (or just a naked MagSafe-enabled iPhone) it should stick to the charger well and only come off if you hit a big bump.

The Energizer TacR-1000 Rechargeable LED Tactical Flashlight is pretty darn bright


Prime members save $11 on this midsize flashlight that’s durable and rated for 1,000 lumens (that’s pretty darn bright) with a four-hour runtime on high mode. Alas, it recharges with a Micro-USB cable, not USB-C. But a lot of rechargeable flashlights haven’t switched over to USB-C yet. (There’s also a version that takes AA batteries, but it’s out of stock right now.)

Apple’s 20-watt USB-C wall charger costs $19. But there are plenty of arguably better alternatives, including Baseus’ 40-watt Dual USB-C Fast Charger, which is down to $22 right now at Amazon. Its list price is $28 (the white version costs $1 more), so you’re saving $6 and essentially getting twice the charging capacity of Apple’s charger.

The Sony CH-520 is are budget on-ear headphones that sound surprisingly good

David Carnoy/CNET

Sony’s entry-level over-ear CH-720N noise-canceling headphones are quite good, but if you can’t afford them — they list for $150 — the company’s new budget on-ear CH-520 headphones are an intriguing option, as they’re selling for as low as $38 at Amazon if you add it via the “other sellers” pane; otherwise it’s $40 (it’s $40 at Target as well, though you have to add it to your cart to get that price). That’s 37% less than their list price of $60 and matches the CH-520’s lowest price to date. We’re waiting to see if the two other colors they’re available in will also be discounted for Prime Day.

What’s cool about Anker’s 622 magnetic battery is that it’s a wireless battery that has an integrated magnetic flap that converts into a stand. You won’t get fast wireless charging from this 5,000-mAh battery (it charges at up to 7.5 watts), but it’s slim and easy to carry around. 

It charges via USB-C and if you use a USB-C to Lightning to charge your iPhone, it will charge at a faster rate of 12 watts. That’s not as fast as what a 20-watt USB-C power adapter can deliver, but it’s faster than 7.5 watts.

Bonus pick that costs a little more than $50

The Amazon Fire HD 8 2022 with a pink back


The base version of the Fire HD 8 costs a little more than $50 (it’s on sale for $55 right now), but this is about as good a deal as you’ll get for a tablet that works just fine for consuming entertainment content like video and ebooks as well as surfing the web. This is the tablet that parents tend to buy for their younger kids who don’t quite know yet the difference between an inexpensive Fire tablet and a fairly pricey Apple iPad.
