Anker's new Liberty 2 Pro normally retails for $150 but is on sale for $40 off at Amazon. It's one of the best values in true wireless earbuds, with very good sound and features (it has both USB-C and wireless charging). It also works very well as a headset for making calls. At this price, it's a real bargain.

Amazon has the Galaxy Buds on sale for $100. We've seen them at that price before, but it's about as low as the get. Although they're not great for making calls, they're a decent set of true wireless earbuds that are a good AirPods alternative, particularly for Galaxy smartphone owners (and Android users).

Bold predictions for Week 13 in college football

Earfun Wave: $30 with discount code

If you're looking for a cheap, comfortable over-ear wireless headphone, Earfun's Wave is an excellent budget choice that sounds decent, has good battery life and nicely padded ear cups. It's normally $50, but if you apply the code EARFUN17 at checkout at Amazon, the price drops to $30. I like the sound of the Tribit XFree Tune slightly better (it's on sale today for $26), but this model is more comfortable to wear. It comes with a case but the headphones don't fold flat (they fold up), the case ends up being pretty bulky. That's their only drawback.

Bose QuietComfort 35 II: $279

On Thanksgiving Day, the Rose Gold edition of the QuietComfort 35 II was on sale for $249 or $100 off. That deal is over, but the black and silver versions (as well as rose gold) will be on sale on Cyber Monday for $279. With the arrival this year of Bose's new Noise Cancelling 700 Headphones ($400), you can expect to see continued sales on the QuietComfort 35 II, which remains a very good headphone that's arguably slightly more comfortable than the 700.

Five questions the fifth College Football Playoff rankings will answer

  Five questions the fifth College Football Playoff rankings will answer The fifth College Football Playoff rankings will answer big questions about how far Alabama will fall after its second loss.LSU was impressive in a 50-7 win against Texas A&M, rolling out to a 31-0 halftime lead, and players afterwards admitted to drawing motivation from last week's drop to No. 2. But beating the Aggies won't offset the Buckeyes' 56-27 win against Michigan, the program's eighth in a row in the series.

Week 14 Power Rankings are in, with a nod to the teams many of us thought were formidable in the preseason finally making their moves. In maybe the top game of the NFL weekend, the Saints almost pulled off some NFC South magic.

Released in early November, the noise-canceling AirPods Pro are regularly priced at $250 but are currently available for $235. This small discount is great for those needing to upgrade their previous AirPods or those who want to dive into a truly wireless audio experience. Note that these keep going in and out of "backordered" status, so right now there appears to be a delay in shipping.

There were winners and losers, including Alabama and Utah.The race for No. 4 matters, but so does the chase for No. 1. The latter has always carried some importance due to the ability to land at the semifinal destination closer to home. This year's competition for the top spot has another layer of intrigue.

The Sony WH-XB900N Extra Bass headphones have a similar design to the WH-1000XM3 and share many of that model's features but for $100 less. Amazon, Best Buy and Walmart briefly had the WH-XB900N on sale for $130. That deal is gone, but Amazon still has some units on sale for $148 (in blue). They're comfortable to wear and have USB-C charging, good battery life and effective noise cancellation. They also work decently as a headset for making calls, and the sound quality is good as long as you don't mind a preponderance of bass.

They're back at $210 being on sale the last several days at $200 ((he lowest price we've seen for these). This model has been out a while, but they're still great noise-canceling headphones. They list for $350, but usually can be had for around $280.

You can save $100 on the Sennheiser HD 4.50R model right now at Best Buy. The only difference between it and the HD 4.50 BTNC version that I reviewed is that the accent color is red instead of silver. (The BTNC model is also on sale at Best Buy, but for $130.) At this price, this is a solid budget alternative to premium models from Bose and Sony.

Klipsch T5 True Wireless: $149

Amazon has Klipsch's T5 True Wireless earbuds on sale for $50 off. I was impressed with their sound -- it's nicely detailed with natural-sounding mids and punchy, well-defined bass. The only caveat is you really have to jam the tips into your ears to get a tight seal and block out noise, and the design may not be for everyone.

While the Zippo-inspired case is somewhat heavy for its relatively compact size, it's sleek and sturdy with USB-C charging. Battery life is also a highlight: The earbuds themselves can run for up to 8 hours on a single charge at moderate volume levels and the case with its built-in battery provides three additional charges on the go.

The T5 Wireless earbuds use Bluetooth 5.0 and support both AAC and AptX. As for water resistance, they're splashproof (IPX4-certified).

The Powerbeats Pro are back, once again selling at the previous all-time low price of $200. A bit of a mixed bag, the Powerbeats Pro have good sound quality, battery life and stay securely plugged into your ears. But you'll need to cart them around in an awkwardly large case that isn't especially pocket friendly. If you don't mind the large case, though, you're not going to find these earbuds for a better price.

Best Buy has the all-black version of the Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3150 true wireless earbuds on sale for $50 off. The open design lets ambient noise in (a safety feature for runners) while the BackBeat Fit 3200 has a noise-isolating design that helps improve the sound quality, particularly the bass. That said, both models have the same drivers so they produce the same sound -- you just hear it differently thanks to the design of the ear tips. Both are an improvement over the earlier Backbeat 3100 model, which had some connectivity issues.

As with the Powerbeats Pro, the one downside is that the BackBeat Fit 3150 earbuds have a large charging case that isn't so pocket-friendly.

I thought they were a little expensive at $180, but Best Buy has them for $110, which makes them more attractive.
