Sony WH-1000XM5 wireless headphones: $324 (save $76)

Sony WH-1000XM5 headphones

Right now, the Sony WH-1000XM5s are Sony's top-of-the-line consumer headphones that offer noise canceling and spatial audio. They feature up to a 30-hour battery life and produce incredibly clear and robust audio.

During its Memorial Day sale, Walmart has cut the price of these bestselling headphones by $76, which brings their price down to just $324. Within our roundup of the five best headphones with spatial audio, the WH-1000XM5s were one of our top picks.

One feature we love about these headphones is their support for DSEE Extreme. This tech upscales compressed digital audio files in real time to restore sounds that would otherwise be lost to compression. These headphones also support multipoint connectivity and Google's Fast Pair feature. 

The WH-1000XM5 headphones offer superior sound quality and use the company's own noise-cancellation technology to eliminate unwanted ambient noise. When supported, the "360 Reality Audio" sounds terrific.

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen), 40mm, GPS + Cellular, sport band: $239 (save $60)

Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen)

All current iterations of the Apple Watch, including this SE edition, run the same version of the WatchOS operating system and come with the same preinstalled apps. What's different is that the Apple Watch SE (2nd Generation) has scaled-down hardware versus the Apple Watch Series 9.

Its processor is a bit older and less powerful. This version of the watch also has fewer integrated sensors and its display isn't as bright. It also lacks the always-on feature and does not offer an ECG function. On the plus side, it's considerably less expensive than an Apple Watch Series 9.

For this reason, many parents buy the Apple Watch SE (2nd Generation) with GPS + Cellular for a child instead of giving them a smartphone. The child can make calls or use the watch's texting feature. Who a child can communicate with is managed using parental controls. A parent can also track the location of a child in real time. If your child finds themselves in an emergency, they can use the SOS feature to summon help.

Adults caring for elderly parents also find this watch useful for remotely monitoring someone's location and making communication easier. The watch offers useful safety features, like fall detection. We also recommend this version of the Apple Watch SE to anyone else looking for a powerful watch, but who doesn't need the latest and most cutting-edge features offered by the Series 9. Like all versions of the Apple Watch, this one also supports Apple Pay, Apple Fitness+, Apple Music and other Apple services. Right now, you can snag a new Apple Watch SE (2nd Gen) for a starting price of $239, which is $60 off.

2022 iPad 10th Generation (64GB, Wi-Fi only): $334 (save $115)

2022 Apple 10.9-inch iPad Wi-Fi 64GB - Silver (10th Generation)

Thanks to its slightly newer and more advanced technology versus the 9th Generation, we recommend this version of the iPad to high school students and adults who want all of the benefits of an iPad without having to spend a fortune. With this model, you get a 10.9-inch Liquid Retina touchscreen display, along with the processing power of the A14 Bionic chip.

The 10th Generation iPad also comes in a nice selection of colors and works with the Apple Pencil and/or an optional keyboard, which can extend its capabilities. This iPad's display and processor allow users to stream 4K resolution video or edit their own 4K videos. And when it comes to customizing the tablet, users get access to almost 2 million apps from the App Store, plus the preinstalled apps that come with iPadOS 17 (or later).

This version of the iPad is a step up from a starter model, but is not as powerful as the new 2024 iPad Pros. It can easily handle all of the most common tasks people use their tablet for. For a limited time, you can purchase the iPad (10th generation) at a starting price of just $334 for the 64GB, Wi-Fi only version.

For help choosing which Apple iPad model is best for you or the person you're shopping for, be sure to read our recently updated 2024 Apple iPad buyer's guide.

Samsung 75" Class LS03B The Frame QLED 4K Smart TV

In our coverage of the six best TVs for 2024, Samsung's Frame was one of our top picks.

Powered by the Tizen OS that gives you easy access to your favorite content, Samsung's Frame offers some unique functionality that make it stand out from the competition. The TV has an ultra-thin bezel that features a customizable picture frame. So when the TV is displayed on your wall, it looks like a piece of artwork. Plus, when you're not watching programming, it automatically displays either famous works of art (that you preselect) or your favorite digital photos. In other words, there's never just an unattractive black rectangle hanging on your wall. 

To make artwork displayed on the screen look more realistic, the Frame uses a non-glare matte finish. This also allows the TV shows or movies you're watching to look detailed with life-like colors. Thanks to a thin (just 1-inch thick) design, it truly looks like a hanging picture frame on any wall –- yet uses its QLED display to showcase 4K resolution video with HDR support. Thanks to the Quantum Dot technology, the Frame can showcase more than 1 billion life-like and accurate colors.

The Frame has become the most popular TV among our readers. You can choose from six bezel colors and styles, so it will nicely fit in with your most decor, offering a sophisticated and contemporary appearance. If, like many of our readers, you're intrigued by what the Frame has to offer, be sure to check out our detailed hands-on review of this popular and rather unique smart TV.
