All technology, if you wait long enough, eventually goes on sale. Yes—all those crazy new gadgets we're seeing at CES will eventually become cheap if you can wait a year or five. But if you can find a bargain as soon as a new model comes out, well, that's where deals live.
Today, our Bestmodo-winning running headphones just got a price cut. Amazon's selling a pair of Sennheiser's PMX 680 Sports headphones for $35.23. Sure there's a new model—and it's a little better—but the best running headphones back in April 2012 are still fantastic running headphones in January 2013. Here's what our fitness and adventure expert Brent Rose had to say:
The 680 Sports series from Sennheiser/Adidas simply give you the most boom for your buck, and by boom I mean bass... The neckband design means that they didn't budge even slightly when running or doing jumping jacks... Other than that, though, these are very solid, and considering you can get them for just over fifty bucks, we've gotta call these your winner.

Boots are cool. And the coolest part is that you don't even have to be an outdoorsman to wear them anymore. It seems like every fashionable man on the island of Manhattan is rocking a pair of heritage-style boots. Why? I guess you need hardcore footwear to traverse the urban jungle. Regardless—the boots you want are always expensive (they're meant to last for life through resoling) and they don't go on sale often. However, with the code WORKBOOT you can pick your favorite from Amazon and save 20%. [Amazon]

I love these military spec hats (they're way better than the cheap beanies they sell at drugstores) but the shipping makes this deal about the same as you'd pay in an Army-Navy store.
