Jabra wireless earbuds now cost $9 less than AirPods with this Amazon sale

Jabra Elite Active 65t review
Bill Roberson/Digital Trends

One of our favorite pairs of true wireless headphones just got a little easier on your wallet: The Jabra Elite Active 65t, which we think are the best wireless headphones you can buy for workouts, are on sale for just $150 at Amazon, down from their original $190 list price.

That $40 discount puts them at about ten bucks cheaper than the latest pair of Apple AirPods, which boast the same 5-hour battery life, but lack the same excellent call quality and IP56 waterproofing offered by the Jabra model.

The thing we like most about Jabra’s Elite Active 65t model is that they are incredibly ergonomic. The compact earbuds fit extremely well in your ears, and soft silicone eartips guarantee great passive noise isolation and plenty of bass.

The included charging case boasts two full charges, for a total for 15 hours on the go, and it’s as compact and easy to pocket as the floss-resembling case from Apple.

Another thing we love about the Jabra Elite Active 65t is that they feature two physical buttons on each earphone, making it easy to adjust volume, play and pause songs, and more. What’s more, this model is now Alexa enabled, meaning you can press a button and call up Amazon’s voice assistant from your phone.

Speaking of connectivity, these headphones are quick to pair, and feature a very stable Bluetooth connection when you’re playing music or watching films — something that we can’t say about all true wireless headphones.

Another feature we love is that they auto-play and auto-pause music when you remove a headphone from your ears, no buttons required. This is something that AirPods do on iOS, but still fail to do on Android.

We do anticipate a new Jabra model will hit the market at some point this year, but that’s no reason to hold off on buying the Jabra Elite Active 65t right now, especially now that they’re $40 off their original list price.

This headphone model is still among the best in the true wireless universe. In fact, until Samsung launched its recent Galaxy Buds — which feature 6 hours of battery life but worse waterproofing — we considered the Jabra Elite Active 65t the best true wireless model on the market.

Now’s a great time to buy the Oura Ring: Save $50 for Father’s Day

For anyone looking for a great gift for Dad this Father's Day, Oura has a fantastic offer on the Oura Ring Gen 3. Today, you can buy it for up to $50 off the regular price so it now costs from $359. The price cut depends on the style you choose with some saving you more than others so it's worth seeing what's out there and what will suit your needs. The deal excludes the cheapest options -- the Heritage Silver or Black, but if you're fine to spend a little more on something more distinctive like the Stealth model, it's a good deal. Let's take a look at what else you need to know about the Oura Ring Gen 3.

Why you should buy the Oura Ring Gen 3
When we reviewed the Oura Ring Gen 3, we called it "close to perfect". Unlike the best smartwatches, it's a piece of jewelry you wear just like a regular ring. Rather than just tracking your activity, it looks more at your overall lifestyle. That means it's more focused on your overall health than helping you crush fitness goals, but it's ideal if your Dad needs to be a bit more relaxed.
