Even better than Black Friday, Cyber Monday is the time to take advantage of massive savings on popular electronics products. One of the best deals we’ve seen on headphones for Cyber Monday is for the high-end Powerbeats Pro totally wireless earphones, which are available now at Amazon for just $200 — a saving of $50 on the list price of $250.
We reviewed the Powerbeats Pro and were impressed by their compact design, with adjustable earhooks to hold them securely in place when you’re moving around. They come with four pairs of eartips so you can find just the right size for your ears, an adjustment that helps the sound quality tremendously. The controls on the buds are intuitive and functional, and the new H1 processor makes them extremely easy to pair. The audio quality has heavy bass which you’ll either love or hate, but the upper registers do have clear sound separation and lower harmonic distortion than previous models.
In fact, the only thing we didn’t like about the Powerbeats Pro was their price. Now that they’re on sale, they make a compelling option for wireless audio on the go.
If you’re looking for wireless earbuds like the Powerbeats, you may also be considering competitors like the Apple Airpods. In our comparison between the Powerbeats Pro and the Apple AirPods, we appreciated the Powerbeats’ water resistance which makes them more suitable for working out or wearing in the rain than the Apple-branded offering. We also liked the fit of the Powerbeats more, with our reviewer found them more secure and more comfortable than the AirPods. We even liked the sound for the Powerbeats better, finding it clear and detailed and making the AirPods sound muddy by comparison. Overall, we recommended the Powerbeats over the AirPods in most regards even when they cost $250. At $200, they’re a clear choice.
There are tons of other great savings to be had on electronics and other gadgets this Cyber Monday.
