★ Best Earbuds—1More ColorBuds for $70 ($30 off)
JBL Live 650BTNC Headphones for $100 ($100 off)
JBL’s Live 650BT sound great. Until October, they hovered between $150 and $200. Now that they’re down to $100, they’re a steal. I love that they have 30-hour battery life, a comfortable cloth headband, and cozy fake leather earpads. Even the noise-canceling is decent—more than adequate enough to quiet down kids or noisey roommates during the quarantine work week.
V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless for $200 ($80 off)
The Crossfade 2 Wireless are an excellent pair of over-ear headphones that are also pretty dang life-proof. They feature replaceable shells on the outside, and a sturdy metal headband that’s got a firm grip, even on small heads. I also like that the hardcase comes with a built-in carabiner, which means they don’t take up precious backpack space when moving around.
Bose Sport Earbuds for $159 ($20 off)
These new sport earbuds from Bose are some of our favorites of 2020, with sticky earfins and comfortable silicone eartips for lengthy workouts. They’ve also got pretty great microphones, for pre- or post-sweat calls.
