Apple AirPods might be the first name you think of when you’re looking for a pair of wireless earbuds — but you can save yourself a ton by opting for buds from equally well-respected headphone manufacturers like Jabra. This Black Friday, you can save even more with incredible deals on headphones that we’ve sourced from retailers across the internet, including the Jabra Elite 65t, which is on sale at Best Buy for just $100, down by a massive $70 from its original price of $170. For a sportier option with more extensive sweatproofing, the Jabra Elite Active 65t is also on sale at Best Buy for $140, down $50 from the original $190 price.
The Jabra Elite 65t earbuds impressed our reviewer with their punchy bass and bright highs, as well as practical features like a reliable Bluetooth connection and an acceptable battery life of around 5 hours. They come with the traditional charging case and they are IP55 dust- and water-resistance rated, which means they’ll stand up to rainfall and a sweaty workout here and there — you don’t want to throw them in a pool, though. The setup is dead simple, and the fit in the ear was pleasant despite the rather bulky appearance. For an affordable pair of wireless earbuds, we can recommend these guys enthusiastically.
If you’re after a hardier pair of earbuds that you plan to put through their paces and you don’t mind spending a little more, you can try the Jabra Elite Active 65t. We loved these headphones even more than the original Jabra Elite 65t, and they are IP56 rated, meaning they can stand up to high-pressure water and dust. They’re ideal for those who go hard at the gym or toss their earbuds into pockets or bags.
