AirPods Pro 2 Now Pack Conversation Awareness
Apple's latest AirPods Pro 2 have returned to all-time lows. The latest addition to the AirPods family offers the most compelling features of the lineup, and now you can score them all for the best price ever. Courtesy of Amazon, the second-generation pair of Apple AirPods Pro retails for $199. That's down from the usual $249 price tag and comes with $50 in savings to hit an all-time low for one of the first few to land. Today's offering is the first price cut we've covered since June and is $1 lower than previous listings. We break down all the new features that make the whole true wireless earbud experience even better under the fold, or in our coverage at Homekit.Blog. The AirPods Pro 2 now features adaptive audio that dynamically adjusts noise to match your surroundings and can also automatically turn on transparency mode when it detects you're talking to someone. The earbuds also offer all the same features as the original pair as the new AirPods Pro 2 now arrive with some improvements such as improved audio fidelity to pair with the improved ANC and new adaptive transparency mode technology. There's still Spatial Audio support, as well as Hey Siri integration, all wrapped up in an updated charging case with Find My features, a built-in speaker and a lanyard loop.

Nanoleaf's new Essentials Matter smart home gear on sale
Earlier this year, Nanoleaf launched a few new Matter smart home accessories, and now one of the first opportunities to save on the batch is going live. The price drop at Amazon begins today with the Nanoleaf Essentials Matter Lightstrip for $40. Starting at $50, you're looking at 20% in savings in addition to just the second discount to date. The markdown also matches an all-time low. Poised to expand your HomeKit setup with multi-colored lighting, the Nanoleaf Essentials Lightstrip notably comes with Matter support for the first time thanks to a built-in Thread radio. The 80-inch strip features full color lighting to add a little sparkle behind a TV or monitor, on a shelf for some extra ambiance, or basically anywhere a pop of color could be used. We're also breaking down the experience further into our launch coverage. Amazon is also on sale today, carrying over the Nanoleaf rebates to its Essentials A19 Smart Bulb. Marked down to $16, it typically fetches $20 and now matches its all-time low, just like the lightstrip above with the same 20% in savings. You're looking at mostly the same features as the model above, just in a different form factor that trades in the stripe design for a typical A19 bulb design. It similarly integrates with Matter and HomeKit with a built-in Thread radio in addition to the RGB lighting capabilities.

Summer discounts land on 45mm Apple Watch Sport Loop bands starting at $27
Amazon is offering some new summer discounts on a range of official Apple Watch Sport Loop bands today. Available in five different styles, today's deals start at $27. We detail all of the two-tone colorways below, but each is lower than the same $49 rate to deliver a whopping 45% in savings. Each model also comes in as the best price of the year for its respective design. All discounts apply to Apple's latest styles, which have been updated for Apple Watch Series 8. Since these bands are for Apple's latest, they are compatible with all 45/44/42 versions of the standard wearable, and even with Apple Watch Ultra. Each of the Sport Loops has a two-tone design that consists of a soft and lightweight woven fiber. Unlike Apple's standard silicone offering, this one has a fully adjustable band that makes it easy to find the perfect fit on your wrist.
Twelve South's adjustable Curve Flex MacBook stand drops to $70
After just seeing Twelve South launch a new and more affordable MacBook stand, we're now seeing some savings drop on one of the more expensive solutions in the brand's stable. The Twelve South Curve Flex comes with a $70 price tag on Amazon and offers a more flexible way to keep your laptop at the desk. It's lower than the usual $80 rate and comes in as the first discount in a month, as well as one of the best of the entire year. We last saw it for $2 less, for comparison. It also comes in both white and black finishes. Twelve South refreshed its popular MacBook stand last fall with the new Curve Flex. This all aluminum offering comes with an adjustable design that allows you to raise your machine in a variety of different ways. I walked away quite impressed in my hands-on review, which you can read for a more in-depth look at the features. But if you're rocking a new 15-inch MacBook Air, then this is easily a must-have way to transform Apple's latest portable machine into a more desk-friendly solution at home or on the go.
