Why is it a good deal?

Want to know what's even better? They're almost 60% off right now, with the Black earbuds down to just $17. They're also available in five other colors: Green, Pink, Purple, White and Dark Blue for only a buck more. While prices are this low you might want to pick up a second pair for yourself or as a gift.

Why do I need this?

Each bud delivers between six and eight hours of playback time, but when paired with the charging case, they offer a whopping 32 hours. Now those long flights suddenly don't seem quite as long. The case itself can be fully recharged in just one hour, too. They're even sweat- and water-resistant, so you can confidently wear them while working out or working in the yard.

The Jxrev Wireless Earbuds pair with both iOS and Android devices. That's a huge win, especially for anyone who wants noise-canceling buds on a budget. A set of 13mm drivers deliver impressive sound quality, and each earbud has a built-in microphone that it uses to adjust the amount of noise cancellation.

What reviewers say

These popular buds have more than 18,000 five-star fans that rave about the quality.

"I love these earbuds! First of all, I have a hard time finding ones that feel comfortable and stay in my ear. [With these] I never have to worry about them falling out. I have even slept comfortably with them in, and I’m a side sleeper. The other thing is the battery life! I don’t use them daily but quite often. I listen to books a lot, so I usually will use them while I am at home cleaning. I highly recommend!" one user raved.

Another user backed up that opinion. "I purchased these earbuds as a replacement for a set that didn't hold up. The sound from these is far superior. My phone calls are easier because the mic and noise cancellation are extraordinary! I love the fact I could get them in a fun color, too. The case and the ends of the earbuds magnetize together to prevent them from falling out when the case is opened. I am getting long periods of listening after short periods of charging. Now my husband wants a pair!"

Said this audiophile, "The battery life is great. I also like that the case battery indicator is on the outside of the case, easier to see. A slight negative, the battery status is reported to the phone as a single value, not a value per side, and the case battery status is not available other than through its build-in LED — though that doesn't bother me much, to be honest."

Meanwhile, this reviewer admitted that instead of drowning out background noise, their buds almost drowned. "I work as a dishwasher and these headphones have fallen into the dishwasher multiple times and survived with no damage to sound quality or ability to charge. Cannot recommend enough!"

Built-in microphones block out unwanted noise to ensure clear call quality.
