Why you should buy the Powerbeats Pro

Powerbeats Pro are designed for workouts, fast jogs, and intensive movement. The increasingly rare over-the-ear earhook loop will keep your Beats in place (and off the ground) even if you fall, do jumping jacks, or practice lunges. Furthermore, their IPX4 will help them resist sweat and limited rain exposure, making them a fantastic running buddy. They get 9 hours of listening time off of one charge and a built-in microphone so you can go extended periods without having to touch your phone if you have grimy hands, as well.

Our Powerbeats Pro review highlighted the power of Apple’s H1 chip, the powering force behind the Powerbeats Pro and the very same chip that power the AirPods 2. Our review went further to comment on the Beats, well, beat. As you likely know, Beats products are known for bass, and the Powerbeats Pro definitely give some extra in the thump department but have notably less harmonic distortion than previous iterations. It’s high-quality bass, reformed.

Forget AirPods: these Jabra earbuds are $60 for Black Friday

There are a lot of excellent and feature-packed wireless earbuds out there, but they can be quite expensive, depending on the brand you opt for. Luckily, if you just want something straightforward with good audio quality, the Jabra Elite 4 earbuds are the perfect pick. Even better, there's a great Black Friday deal on them right now from Best Buy, bringing the price down to just $60 from $100. That's a great discount on arguably mid-to-high-end earbuds, at least in terms of audio quality.

Why you should buy the Jabra Elite 4
For just $60, the Jabra Elite 4 are a very comfy set of earbuds. Not only that, but they surprisingly offer Active Noise Cancellation (ANC), and it's pretty good and certainly a big upgrade from the Elites 3's somewhat middling ANC and will work well for things like commuting. You also have a bit of adjustability on the ANC using the associated app, although you likely won't need to use it much since it is great out of the box. The included transparency mode is also pretty great, although you should know that the overall battery life isn't great, with about 22 hours total in the earbuds and case with ANC on. It does increase to around 28 with ANC off, but that's not as competitive with some earbuds in the same price range.
