What makes for a great set of earbuds? For us, that means a reliable battery, excellent sound, and a good amount of ear comfort. Today, you won’t find a better earbuds deal that checks all the boxes than this sale on JBL’s wireless earbuds. Instead of the regular $149.95 price tag, the audio brand has discounted its Bluetooth earbuds to only $54.95 just in time for your Father’s Day shopping.
That translates to a massive 63 percent off the retail value on these top-rated inner-ear headphones. That also means you’ll have a spare $95 to spend on, say, a very, very good couple dinners or even several months towards a Hulu or HBO Max subscription.
So what makes them worthy of your hard-earned cash?
- Battery Life: Let’s start with that runtime that just might make you do a double-take: 20 hours total with the included case. With each listening session, JBL says they should last you around six hours per charge, with that additional 14-hour power boost when you put them back in their charging case.
- Sound Quality: Next up, the wireless pair comes with JBL’s reliable sound quality, meaning that just because these are tiny wireless earbuds, you don’t have to sacrifice powerful and big sound. You can also listen in Ambient Aware mode, which makes sure you can hear your surroundings while jamming out. Along with the crisp sound delivery for both listening to music and taking calls, you can also use Amazon Alexa with these buds.
- Workout-Friendly Design: Finally, JBL’s catered to anyone who wants to use these buds during a run or a workout, thanks to the 300s’ sweat- and water-resistant design. Pop them in before your routine, and they’ll stay secure and comfortable.
With more than 8,200 ratings on Amazon so far, the JBL Live 300s have earned a 4.2-star (out of 5) rating at press time, getting top marks for their sound quality, comfort and, not surprisingly, their solid battery runtime.
Searching for noise-cancelling JBL earbuds instead? JBL’s Elite 85t earbuds are also currently discounted on Amazon, and they come with a 25-hour runtime, a water-resistant construction, as well as a convenient charging case.
You can shop JBL’s Live 300 earbuds deal now for as long as it lasts, but this discount could be history at any time.
