Wireless earbuds seem to be everywhere now, bulky wires gone the way of the audio port. (RIP.)
That goes double for the new Powerbeats, the new Apple earbuds that are meant to be a sporty alternative to AirPods.
But Powerbeats are fairly pricey, especially for folks unaccustomed to the jacked-up pricing of wireless listening tech. No wonder, because one look at Apple’s official store reveals that the now vintage EarPods are $29.99 — in comparison to the average $200 at which the Powerbeats currently retail.
If you’re a penny-pinching tech lover, that price difference is a steep premium to pay for a few moments as part of the tech “it” crowd.
If you’re truly curious about fitness-centric wireless headphones but are fazed by Powerbeats pricing — check out these True Wireless Bluetooth Fitness Headphones that are on sale.
These are some of the smallest and most lightweight earphones on the market, rivaling the Powerbeats in portability and ease of use — and they’re available for over $100 less than their Apple counterparts right now. They offer eight continuous hours of audio play time on one charge, plus Bluetooth 4.2 technology with a range of up to 30 feet. Each earphone has its own speaker, Bluetooth chip, battery, and mic — meaning that each works either independently or paired.
Other goodies include IPX4 water resistance (so you can use them fearlessly near any pool), a built-in mic (for easy chatting), and cVc 6.0 active noise cancelation that ensures a pristine listening experience.
These wireless headphones are normally $119, but grab them on sale for just $44.99.
