Better than AirPods? High-performing Beats earbuds are on sale for $100 — $50 off

Right now Amazon's got tremendous deals on all manner of Beats earbuds, but we're particularly loving the Beats Studio Buds. Why? The punchy colors, the cute, compact design, and, well, the fact that they're 33% off, now down to just $100. Plus, they're a great way to keep yourself motivated as you work towards your New Year goals with their great sound quality. They're definitely gym-worthy.

We have more reasons, too. Like these:

Beats Studio buds technology gives you a more immersive aural experience, perfect for gamers and movie fans who want to truly live inside their content.

Each pair comes with three ear tip options, one of which will surely work for any grade-schooler, grad student or granny.

They will, of course, rock any Android device, but they also automatically pair with anything in the Appleverse. iPhone users can even enjoy hands-free activation with Siri. On-bud controls allow you to adjust the volume, choose listening modes and engage voice assistance.

Active Noise Cancelling will, of course, allow you to completely shut out the world, but should you want, or need, to stay somewhat engaged, opt for Transparency Mode; two small, front-facing mics will allow you to stay aware of what's happening around you. Call it a safety feature, call it an ingenious option — either way, it's good to have.

Also good to have? Power that won't quit. These Beats will run for eight hours on a single charge, and 16 more when stored in the juiced-up case.

That's a lot to love, right? Is it any wonder, then, that more than 35,000 Beats owners have testified to their love? Herewith, testimonials from a few of those five-star fans.

"I'm not an audiophile by any stretch, but love my music. In my opinion, the sound quality is excellent with deep bass and clarity," related a once-stingy shopper. "I had been buying cheaper earbuds (in the $35 range) for years, not wanting to spend the money that higher quality earbuds demand, but I'd have to buy a couple pairs each year with nothing but issues." He continued: "I can't compare these to AirPods or any expensive earbuds, but the difference from the cheaper ones is unmistakable. Should have done it years ago."

Here's someone who can compare these Beats to AirPods: "They do the job just as good, probably even better than Apple. I feel like AirPods are overrated, honestly; the magnet on these is strong, the battery life amazing and the sound quality fire! Bye, AirPods, LOL."

That trend continues with this user who doesn't just compare the Beats to AirPods Pro, but insisted they're better. "I am honestly so shocked that so many people sleep on Beats ear pods in general. The sound quality competes with Apple, the price can’t be beat, and there are a lot more features that the Beats have, plus some that Apple AirPods Pro don’t even have. I definitely recommend the switch over if you are considering."
