Enlarge / The Sony WH-1000XM3 are $70 off as part of an early Black Friday deal.Jeff Dunn

Greetings, Arsians! The Dealmaster is checking in for a special weekend edition of our deals roundup, since several early Black Friday deals on tech gadgets and gear are currently available at retailers such as Best Buy and Amazon. The former says most of its sales will end on November 10—and you might need a "My Best Buy" account (which is free) for some of them—but that these prices match what we'll see on Black Friday proper. Either way, we've rounded up the highlights below.

Some of the standout deals here include new lows for a pair of excellent noise-cancelling headphones, Sony's WH-1000XM3 and Bose's QuietComfort 35 II, both of which normally cost $350 but are normally available for less than $280. We prefer Sony's pair out of the two, but both are just about class-leading when it comes to over-ear ANC headphones. Several Bose audio products are deeply discounted beyond that, including all-time low prices on its SoundLink Revolve Bluetooth speaker and SoundSport Wireless exercise earphones.

Elsewhere, our current favorite wired gaming mouse, the Razer DeathAdder Elite, is down to a new low of $30, while SanDisk's microSD Card for Nintendo Switch—which we recommend in our guide to Nintendo Switch accessories—is available for an all-time low of $20. There are plenty more noteworthy discounts beyond that—including deals on the Apple Watch Series 4, gaming laptops, Garmin watches, and external storage—so have a look through the list below and see if there's any holiday shopping you can get done early.
