Amazon Prime Day speaker deals
What is it? Loud, that’s what it is. JBL’s Boombox 2 is a substantial portable speaker that has garnered good reviews across the board, mainly down to its prodigious volume and stamina. You get a full 24 hours of JBL’s loudest ever ‘Original Pro Sound’, which, perhaps unnecessarily, combines loudness with monstrous bass. There’s even a built-in power bank and it can be submerged in a metre of water for 30 minutes.
What’s the real saving? Amazon has never had JBL’s Boombox 2 below the £400 RRP, so this is a genuine £100 off from Amazon here. Currys has it at £300 before Prime Day, though. Still, this is a great price for a party-ready speaker.
OK, we’ve seen this tiny music player a touch cheaper on Amazon before, but we’re fans of Anker, and at just £16 don’t judge this tiny Bluetooth speaker by its size or the low price. A 15-hour playtime, noise-cancelling mic, integrated MP3 player and FM radio, metal shell and, crucially, surprisingly powerful sound make this bona fide wise buy.
This Bluetooth 5.0 portable player has more than 20 hours of playtime from one charge, then fast charging so 20 minutes yields six more hours. IPX4 water-resistance means it can shrug off splashes. The good? Crisp, detailed sound. The bad? We’d like a bit more volume, please. Currys has this at the same low price, but no stock – so grab it here.
Amazon Prime Day TV deals
What is it? The Samsung AU8000 is one of the best entry-level TVs. This is the 43-inch version, and it has slightly better contrast and brightness than the step-down Samsung TU7020 (from £429) you can get for the same price if you prefer a larger screen over a bump up in image quality. Black levels are good, it has a solid anti-reflective layer and a good array of streaming services are supported through Samsung’s smart TV platform. You can’t go wrong here if you’re after a smaller set.
What’s the real saving? This is a new TV, its release details only announced in March, so you don’t save hundreds upon hundreds of pounds. However, at this price we won’t sniff at £50 off. It cost £500 at Amazon, and everywhere else, before Prime Day.
What is it? The Philips Audio B8805/10 is a discreet way to upgrade your TV’s sound. It’s a 3.1 soundbar with a separate 6.5-inch subwoofer, which will pump out deeper and more powerful bass than most soundbars with integrated bass drivers. There are separate mid and tweeter drivers for the left, right and centre channels too. Chromecast and Spotify Connect support is baked-in, letting it double as a hifi.
What’s the real saving? This soundbar has sold at its original £400 asking price at Amazon, and pretty much everywhere else, since it launched in late 2020. £120 is a hefty discount.
This mid-range 55-inch TV uses LG’s Nanocell tech to bring out the colour in images. Its IPS panel also makes it easier to gather a family around the set, as viewing angles are very good.
Dubbed a “laser TV” to keep things simple, the Hisense 100L5FTUK-B12 is actually a very bright ultra-short throw laser projector matched with an ambient light reflecting fresnel screen. £300 off other prices online, but £1,300 off the original cost.
