The Apple AirPods are an excellent set of earbuds for iPhone users. The in-ear headphones use the company's H1 chip to integrate Siri, power Spatial Audio, and enable hassle-free use with Apple's devices but let's be honest, they aren't cheap!

They also don't work well with Android smartphones. So, if you don't have an iPhone or want a budget-friendly option, you're better off with an AirPods alternative.

The Jabra Elite 7 Active top our list of the best workout earbuds and right now, you can save an incredible 40% on the Jabra Elite Active 75t workout earbuds at Best Buy. Not in the US? Don't worry, we've also included deals for your region below. 

This massive saving on the fitness-focused earbuds is impressive as they are still only 18 months old. Pick up a set of these great AirPods alternatives for almost half-price before the deal ends!

Battery life is crucial for workout earbuds; after all, you don't want them cutting out in the middle of a weights session or long run. Each bud offers up to 7.5 hours, but the charging case brings this up to 28 hours.

They also have some of the latest wireless tech, including Bluetooth 5.0 support. With this, you shouldn't have any audio dropouts, and connections to your phone should be almost instantaneous. 

Not long after Jabra dropped the Elite 75t and Elite Active 75t earbuds, it returned with the Jabra Elite 85t, another set of wireless earbuds. If you compare the Jabra Elite 75t vs 85t, there are a few key differences. 

The Elite 85t is positioned as the premium model, but the main difference is the number of microphones. There are six on the 85t compared to the four found on the 75t models. 

These mics are used to improve your audio experience. The earbuds pick up the noise around you on both models and use onboard tech to cancel it out before it reaches your ears.
