Everybody likes a good deal, which is why we've decided to round up a bunch of gear we think is well priced and delivers a lot of bang for the buck.
Naturally, we didn't find every deal, but we did our best to find the best deal among the products we've reviewed. As always, if you feel we've missed a product that's a great deal, post a comment to get your 2 cents in. We'll be updating this list in the future and may very well include it.

JVC Flats: On-ear headphone
There's nothing fancy about the JVC Flats, but it delivers solid sound and a comfortable fit for very little money. Available in multiple colors.
At around $1,000, the Lenovo Yoga 2 Pro features an ultra high-resolution 3,200x1,800-pixel screen in a convertible design. In fact, the whole Lenovo Yoga family (yes, there are several models) offers good bang for the buck.
We thought Pioneer's sound bar sounded really good for the money and so does its Andrew Jones designed SP-PK52FS surround speaker system, which retails for a mere $549.99.
You can also buy the speakers separately, with the excellent SP-BS21-LR bookshelf speakers going for less than $100 a pair at Amazon (the price sometimes dips to to less than $70) and the SP-FS52-LR towers selling for $130 (each) and sometimes less.
If you're interested in starting a multiroom audio system, the Sonos Play:1 is a good place to start. Just try to pick it up when Sonos is offering its Bridge ($50) as part of the package. Look for that deal to crop up every few months.
Fluance, an online direct-to-consumer Canadian company, is known for serving up excellent performing speaker for modest prices.
The large and minimalist design of the company's Fi30 wireless Bluetooth speaker isn't for everyone,
particularly if you're looking for a smaller wireless speaker that's
truly portable and has a battery-powered option. But for those in search
of the best sound for their Bluetooth buck, the Fi30 is hard to beat at

Oontz Curve by Cambridge SoundWorks
The Oontz Curve isn't considerably better than the rest of the tiny budget speakers
out there, but it is sturdily built and you're not going to do too much better for $30. Just
don't come in expecting to get incredible sound for that money and you
should be happy with the Curve.
