Most people are willing to invest when it comes to buying the best HD TV on the market, but oftentimes, they forget about getting the right speakers to complement it. If you're looking to upgrade your home theater's audio, chances are Sonos has exactly what you're looking for, whether you're a true audiophile or a novice.

If you want a basic home audio upgrade, the Sonos One ($199) is a small smart speaker that, despite its compact size, delivers sound that can fill an entire room. These speakers can fit almost anywhere in your house, from your home theater or living room to the bathroom or kitchen. Pretty much any place where you enjoy listening to music or watching TV could use one, and with two, you can begin to enjoy Sonos surround sound at a relatively low cost.

For something with a bigger punch, there's the Beam ($399), Sonos’s compact smart soundbar for TV, music, movies, video games, and podcasts. The sound is bolstered by four full-range woofers, one tweeter, three passive radiators, and five class-D digital amplifiers. It even includes a feature called Speech Enhancement, which can digitally clarify tough-to-catch dialogue in film and TV, such as whispers and dialogue spoken over loud music or sound effects.

The Beam takes just a few minutes of installation and can be controlled through the Sonos mobile app, its remote control, or your own voice.

The Sonos Amp.Sonos

Then there's the Sonos Amp ($649), an amplifier that powers all of your other Sonos speakers, as well as radios, TVs, and practically anything else that plays sound to speakers throughout your home. This is the ideal option for anyone looking to connect and optimize their new home theater system.

Now that Prime Day is over, and with Black Friday and Cyber Monday still a few weeks away, online deals may seem harder to come by. And while it can be a hassle to scour the internet for promo codes, buy-one-get-one deals, and flash sales, Amazon actually has an extensive coupon page you might not know about that features deals to look through every day.

As pointed out by People, the coupon page breaks deals down by categories, like electronics, home & kitchen, and groceries (the coupons even work with SNAP benefits). Since most of the deals revolve around the essentials, it's easy to stock up on items like Cottonelle toilet paper, Tide Pods, Cascade dishwasher detergent, and a 50 pack of surgical masks whenever you're running low.

But the low prices don't just stop at necessities. If you’re looking for the best deal on headphones, all you have to do is go to the electronics coupon page and it will bring up a deal on these COWIN E7 PRO noise-canceling headphones, which are now $80, thanks to a $10 coupon you could have missed.

Alternatively, if you are looking for deals on specific brands, you can search for their coupons from the page. So if you've had your eye on the Homall S-Racer gaming chair, you’ll find there's currently a coupon that saves you 5 percent, thanks to a simple search.

To discover all the deals you have been missing out on, head over to the Amazon Coupons page.

If you're looking for another face mask to bring with you while you're out and about, the Electric Respirator LED Fan Mask offers plenty of protection, thanks to a four-layer, KN95-certified filter and a two-speed fan motor for constant fresh air. And while it may sound like a massive contraption to wear, it’s actually a tiny geometric piece that's available in black or white.

The custom four layers of filters in the Electric Respirator LED Fan Mask are designed to keep the air you breathe safe and clean, which starts with a strong anti-bacterial net to filter large particles in the air. Anything that gets through there will be checked at the second filter—the activated carbon filter, where particles are sterilized and deodorized. It’ll even keep you safe from harmful substances like formaldehyde.

If stubborn particles like pollen, smoke, and dust still make their way through the first two layers, they’ll be faced with a HEPA filter at the third layer. A fourth and final layer works to inhibit bacterial growth through the release of negative oxygen ions. The two-speed fan motor doubles down on moisture prevention.

You can get the modern four-layer mask in black or white, and for a limited time, you can get them each in black or white two-packs for $87.

Prices subject to change.
