10 tasty tech deals from South Africa’s online stores [Mon 9 July]

Listed at 25% off, the iPhone SE has long been the understated device in the Apple smartphone range. Just because it’s based on 2013’s iPhone 5, doesn’t mean it can’t offer entry level value into the Cupertino ecosystem.

Sennheiser Momentum M2 AE | Was R5000, Now R2999

Listed at 40%, the Sennheiser Momentums are over-the-ear phones with a metal frame and leather earcups. They’re also sold with a travel pouch.

One of 2017’s bigger PlayStation 4 titles, NieR: Automata is listed at a cool R849 on the official South African PlayStation Store.

Pantum P2500W A4 Mono Laser Printer | Was R699, Now R399
