JBL Tune wireless earphones are on sale on Amazon

Apple’s AirPods are one of the most popular wireless earphones available, but they’re also expensive: some are priced as high as $249 a pair! Good news, then, that Amazon’s early Black Friday deals include plenty of no less capable alternatives. One such option is the JBL Tune 225TWS, which is currently priced at just $50, down from $100. They’re quality buds that make fabulous holiday gifts…or even a nice indulgence for yourself!

Out of their case, the JBL Tune 225TWS earphones last about five hours. Add the charging case and they can last about another 20. That’s a whopping total of 25 hours! Despite their now ridiculous price, they offer plenty of bass and balanced sound. Plus, you can choose to wear just one to make calls or listen to music. This is a useful feature when you need to answer a call on your landline or be aware of noises in your surroundings. Another plus: they come in some fun colors: red! gold! rose! – instead of Apple’s standard white.

“I love these earphones,” says one five-star reviewer. “I’ve tried at least 20 different brands and styles, and these are good for the following reasons: 1) They are very comfortable. Sounds like that’s a dumb reason to rate earphones, but if you have them in your ears all day it matters. 2) They sound great for the price, [with] decent bass, good separation and loud enough. 3) They connect well and do not come apart. 4) They have a very long battery life. 5) They are built really well. That’s a lot of reasons!

This guy is pretty impressed too: “The sound quality of these is really good. I’ve had so many Bluetooth headphones in the past and the audio has always been underwhelming. These have good fidelity and if you adjust the equalizer correctly, it will be as if there is no difference between these and a wired headset.

“I could have spent nearly $200 on some wireless AirPods, but I couldn’t justify it,” said one new convert. “JBL comes to the rescue… They are very similar in design to Apple. I wear them for mountain bike rides, running, house cleaning, meetings and have no issues to report. All in all, great value for money, especially for people like me who have forever felt connected to Apple products because of the fit.
