Listen: we love the Power Beats Pro earbuds. And the Jaybird Vistas cracked our GP 100 as one of the top 10 fitness products of last year. But when a legit audio brand like JBL teams up with a legit fitness brand like Under Armour, the resulting earbuds are pretty hard to top, especially when you can score them for $74 off.
So what makes the Under Armour True Wireless Flash Engineered by JBL earbuds competitive with the aforementioned favorites? On the sound side, JBL’s name ensures plenty of bass, plus TalkThru, which lowers music and amplifies speech to improve communication with workout partners, and AmbientAware, which increases real-world sounds to decrease your odds of getting run over by a cab.
On the performance side, UA’s name means IPX7 sweat and waterproof protection, plus a total of 25 hours of battery life (five in the buds plus 20 in the reasonably sized case) to last long after the final wind sprint, bench press or burpee.
These days, the Power Beats Pros go for $200 on Amazon, while the Vistas go for $169. But act now and you can snag these buds for just $130, 36 percent off the regular price.
