Apple AirPods are one of the most popular wireless earbuds, but they’re not exactly cheap — the Pros ring up at $200 a pair right now! Thankfully, there are less expensive alternatives on sale that boast comparable audio quality, battery life and features, at a fraction of the cost. Enter JBL! The audio powerhouse makes a fine line of wireless earbuds — two of which, the JBL Tune 130NC and the JBL Vibe 200TWS, are on sale— and we love 'em all.
The JBL Tune 130NCs have up to 40 hours total of battery life — 10 per bud, with another 30 stored in the case itself. If you run low, a quick charge of just 10 minutes will get you another two hours of juice. These are sturdy, durable earbuds that can stand up to rain and bad weather too.
"I bought these just to use as an everyday earbud. They are a little bland when you get them, but messing with the equalizer setting in the JBL app fixes it to your liking!" said one user. "Amazing sound quality and comfortable to wear! So many features, like tap to pause on the bud and Google Assistant just by touching the bud, are so helpful and extremely easy to setup!"
The JBL Vibe 200TWS earbuds can really rock the bass (and the casbah). Their comfort-focused build means they'll sit comfortably in your ears even as you bop along to the music, and the 20 hours of playback time will keep you going all day long. You can even activate your phone's smart assistant with these for greater convenience.
"Great bass. Easy setup. Excellent sound quality. I'm partial to JBL because they make superior products to their competitors. These sound better than my daughter's AirPods in my opinion. I even have a JBL system in my car that still. Sounds great and it's 12 years old," said one user.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
