Apple’s AirPods are one of the most popular wireless headphones available, but they’re also expensive – some are priced up to $249! The good news is that there are plenty of earbuds available for less. One of those options is the JBL Tune 225TWS, which is currently priced at just $80, down from $100. They are quality buds that make great holiday gifts…or even a nice indulgence for yourself!
Out of their carrying case, the JBL Tune 225TWS headphones last around five hours. Add the charging case and they can last another 20 or so. That’s 25 hours in total! Despite their now-ridonculous price, they offer plenty of bass and balanced sound. In addition, you can choose to wear only one of them to make calls or listen to music. That’s a useful feature when you need to take a call on your landline or be aware of sounds in your environment. Another perk: They are available in some fun colors – red! gold! pink! – instead of Apple’s standard white.
“I love these headphones,” 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’re very comfortable. It seems like a silly reason to rate headphones but if they’re in your ears all day it’s important. 2) They sound great for the price, [with] decent bass, good separation and quite loud. 3) They bond well and don’t shed. 4) They have a very long battery life. 5) They are very well built.” That’s a lot of reasons!
This guy is impressed, too: “The sound quality of these people is really nice. I’ve had so many Bluetooth headphones in the past, and the sound wasn’t always there for long. These have good fidelity, and if you adjust your equalizer correctly, these will sound no different than a wired headset.”
“I could cough up the close to $200 for some wireless AirPods, but I couldn’t justify it,” said a new convert. “In is JBL as a saver…they are very similar in design to Apple. I wear them on mountain bike trips, running, house cleaning, meetings and have no problem reporting. All in all, great value, especially for people like me who felt like they were forever connected to Apple products because of exercise.”
