A set of the best workout earbuds are more than just a way to listen to music. For many of us, they're the heart and soul of our workout. Whether you love listening to drum and bass during an intense HIIT session, or you enjoy listening to podcasts on a more sedate steady-state jog, you need a good set of headphones, and these days, tangled wires just don't cut it.
For us, the Jabra Elite Active range have long featured in our Best Of lists. From the latest 85T to the earlier models, the design, fit and battery life is outstanding quality for the price. It's this longevity which make even earlier models great to pick up at discount.
Which is why this deal from Best Buy caught our eye. The Jabra Elite Active 65T was already discounted at $80 thanks to its new, shiny replacement, but it's been slashed even further, bringing these great wireless earbuds – which still outperform many of its contemporaries – down to under $60. Considering the buds' long-lasting quality, we think a set for under $59.99 is great value.

Well, to put it simply, the Jabra Elite Active 65T is still a perfectly good set of earbuds. They're reliable, offer five hours of talk time, last up to 15 hours with the case... and crucially, they're so cheap now that it makes these great-quality headphones unbeatable value in comparison to competitors, even among its own brand, that cost $200 or more at full price.
