Amazon slashes $50 off the Powerbeats Pro and Bose SoundSport headphones

If the New Year has got you wanting to get fit, certain lifestyle changes need to be made. As the saying goes; no pain, no gain, but then again, working out becomes much more endurable when you’re tuned in to your favorite playlist. Wireless in-ear headphones will get you in the groove without tangled cables or wobbly headbands getting in the way. Right now, you can get in on $50 worth of savings with Amazon’s limited-time deals on the Powerbeats Pro and Bose SoundSport.

Powerbeats Pro — $200 (was $250)

In comparison to the Powerbeats 3, the Powerbeats Pro has got a lot more going on in a thinner and less obtrusive housing according to our review. A snug and comfortable fit is assured with ear hooks and four pairs of ear tips in varying sizes keeping them in place. It may not be entirely waterproof, but an IPX4 rating means they are protected against splashes and sweat.

Freedom of movement is completely supported with intuitive controls readily accessible on the earbuds and Class 1 Bluetooth technology that ensures fewer dropouts with an extended range. Since the Beats brand was acquired by Apple, you won’t be missing out on the H1 Chip for a quick easy pair that will likewise enable iOS users to activate Siri. Apple’s Airpods may hold the upper hand when it comes to a faultless connection but the Powerbeats Pro step up with better audio quality. Beyond the ability to deliver a punchier bass, you’re also in store for impressive instrumental separation, detail, and dynamics. Vocal clarity for calls is guaranteed with a speech-detecting accelerometer and multiple microphones that target voice and filter out external noise.

As for battery life, each earbud can provide up to nine hours of portable runtime while you can bank on its charging case for two more charges that will yield you a total of 24 hours of use. If that doesn’t cut it, five minutes of fast-fuel charging will give you at least 1.5 hours of playback. It also has motion accelerometers that automatically enters it into sleep mode when not in use to help you conserve power. Usually ringing in at $250, Amazon’s $50 discount lets you snag this premium pair of true wireless earbuds for just $200.

Bose SoundSport — $99 (was $149)

If you’re more keen on getting savings and aren’t crazy about going totally wireless, the Bose SoundSport are wireless in-ear headphones with a single cord connecting the two earpieces. You’re still untethered from your device with both Bluetooth and NFC in place. A press of a button on the right earbud is all it takes to power and spark a seamless pair while the in-line remote and mic house all the necessary controls for playback and calls. When in doubt, you’ll be thankful for the voice prompts.

These fitness-oriented headphones aren’t the most compact pair you can find, but they are fairly lightweight at just 0.8 ounces and pack a big enough battery to deliver up to six hours of use. Apart from the IPX4 splashproof rating, a hydrophobic cloth on each port protects from moisture, too. These come with a carry case for easy storage and three pairs of StayHear+ ear tips in varying sizes for a secure fit, allowing just enough ambient sound to seep in so you don’t lose touch with your surroundings, especially in high-traffic areas. And to decrease the risk of you losing anything, Bose’s SoundSport comes with a carry case.

Those particular about their sound will be grateful that Bose’s stellar reputation for supreme audio reproduction is intact with the SoundSport’s active EQ, which delivers sound that remains well balanced regardless of the volume. The Bose Connect app only makes the deal all the more interesting as it gives you the means to toggle through the equalizer as well as update software. Score the Bose SoundSport while Amazon has it on sale for only $99 instead of $149.
