Amazon’s Spring Sale is still on (until Wednesday, 31 March) and the majority of the deals we picked out at the start of the week are still live. Here’s our edit, including some new discounts that have popped up through the week.
£61 off Bowers and Wilkins PX7 headphones | Now £279
What is it? The Bowers and Wilkins PX7 headphones are a top-rated set of ultra-premium headphones – showing up the even higher pricing of a certain fruit-based manufacturer. These are brimming with style – offering a look unfettered by flashiness but still standing out with an eye-catching curve that attaches the band to the earcups. The woven carbon-fibre composite arms offer durability while maintaining a lightweight. Then, there’s the sound. 43mm drivers will knock your socks off and there’s also adaptive noise cancellation to shut out those bothersome outside sounds.
What’s the real saving? These high-quality headphones have regularly been priced around £338 for much of 2021 – making this off a true saving of over £60.

£61 off the Bosch Rotak 32 LI Cordless Lawnmower | Now £249
What is it? The Bosch Rotak 32 LI Cordless Lawnmower is a dream for those who don’t want the evergreen experience of stepping over a cable and making sure it doesn’t get caught on your well-kept plants every two seconds. This cordless lawn mower is made for small urban gardens (up to 250cm x 250cm), with a 70-minute runtime between charges to give you plenty of time for getting the job done. The sharp blades and small size lets you get right up to those edges, even up against the fence, too. You also won’t be disturbing the neighbours much, with this quiet but powerful mower reaching just 74dB.
What’s the real saving? The Rotak 32 LI has been priced above £300 for much of the last year, only teasing to get down to this low price on special Amazon occasions. With the most recent regular price being £310, this is a real saving of over £60.

£24 off an Apple iPhone XR (64GB), now £475: Amazon had quite a few iPhones on sale this week including iPhone SE and iPhone 11 models. This decent iPhone XR deal is still live.
£15 off the Garmin Forerunner 45, now £115: It’s no longer our first pick for cheap running watches – that goes to the Coros Pace 2 (£180) but if you’re really on a budget, check out the Forerunner 45. A neat GPS watch with alerts, music controls and workout tracking.
20% off this very good Braun beard trimmer | Now £50
What is it? WIRED’s no.1 beard trimmer, based on our testing, the Braun 10-in-1 MGK7221 does it all, by which we mean it’ll trim not only your beard but it’ll take care of unruly ‘taches, nose hair, ear hair and just about every other cranny and crevice you wish it to. You get loads of easy-to-change attachments, a consistent cut – plus it’s quick and easy to clean too. No brainer.
What’s the real saving? Not quite the £44 advertised saving as this Braun was selling for £66 in February. But that’s still £16 – or 20% – off a genuinely nifty grooming tool kit.

£145 off a Samsung Odyssey G9 | Now £1,048
What is it? Samsung’s Odyssey G9 monitor is quite the marvel to behold. It’s 49-inch ultrawide gaming display that provides remarkable levels of immersion. It isn’t just about that crazy curve either, with a 240Hz refresh rate, 1440p resolution and 1ms to give you a great gaming experience all around. If the G9 is a bit too pricey or over the top for your tastes, the smaller 32-inch Odyssey G7 is also currently £50 off at Amazon.
What’s the real saving? Throughout March, the Samsung Odyssey G9 was priced at just under £1,195 – making this reduction down to £1,049 a true saving of almost £150. Not bad if you had been considering picking up this gaming monitor mammoth.

£150 off an Oppo Find X2 Pro 5G | Now £799
What is it? The Oppo Find X2 Pro 5G was one of the big surprises of 2020. The new Oppo flagship took the Android market by storm, with its unique vegan leather design and periscope zoom camera – catching brands like Samsung and OnePlus off guard and earning a spot in our best Android phones list. The Find X3 Pro was just revealed but at a cost of over £1,000 while also ditching the interesting zoom lens and switching up the design – making this offer look like a great way to save some cash on a premium flagship.
What’s the real saving? If you’ve been on the hunt for this Oppo flagship of late, you might have found it at a price of around £950 on Amazon – a price which it’s hovered around for a couple of months. The new price of £799 is the lowest it’s been since Black Friday – making this a great real saving of £150.

£111 off Beats Studio3 wireless noise-cancelling headphones, now £189: Thanks to the W1 chip you get a fine wireless performance here.

Argos has some colourways going for £170.
£24 off Sony WH-CH700N noise-cancelling wireless Bluetooth headphones, now £75: with a perfectly acceptable 35 hours of battery life and Quick Charge if you do run dry (10 minutes charge gets you 60 mins playback), this is a decent price for Sony cans that are set up for Alexa, Google Assistant or Siri.
£97 off Arlo Pro3 smart home security camera, now £183: The Arlo Pro 3 may have only 2K resolution instead of 4K, but there’s still plenty of other decent features to make this security camera a solid choice. Good images combine with a stylish design and easy setup. The downside? You get limited features without a subscription.
£15 off Hitman 3 on PS5, PS4 and Xbox, now £35: Universally given glowing reviews, this latest outing for Agent 47 features some of the best levels of the entire trilogy in exotic locations such as Argentina, China and Dubai.
