Still using wired headphones during workouts? You can do better than that. Especially right now, because Amazon has these Beats Powerbeats Wireless Earphones on sale for 50 bucks off for the 4th of July.

Normally priced at $150, the buds can be yours for just $100. Nearly 8,000 reviewers are hooked!

With sound quality like this, you’ll be super-motivated to exercise longer, harder and more often. Available in goes-with-everything black, these incredible Beats are so well-deserved after this stressful year.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Built for workouts

The Beats Powerbeats Wireless Earphones make life — and fitness — easier. With a brilliant 15 hours of battery life per charge, they’re always ready to go. And even if, by some chance, you do let your Powerbeats run out of juice, there’s a safety for that — a quick five-minute charge that gives you enough juice for a full hour of playback. It’s called ‘Fast Fuel,’ and it’s awesome.

Secure-fit ear hooks keep them in place no matter what — they won't fall out of your ears like certain other wireless earbuds. Outdoorsy? No sweat — these earphones are water-resistant.

"I love these for outdoor running or exercise," raved a five-star reviewer. "I like the cable around the back to hang on my neck when not actively listening to anything. These are not noise-canceling but do limit some outside noise. But if you run, these allow you to keep up with what’s going on around you (like a car behind you) and still have great sound with decent base. The battery life is awesome. I only recharge maybe once a week but use these almost every day."

Impressive features, especially for Apple iPhone users

If you’re an iPhone user, your phone will automatically and seamlessly sync to these wireless headphones thanks to Apple’s 'magical' H1 chip. The Beats Powerbeats Wireless Earphones will also pair with just about any Android smartphone via Bluetooth.

Shared a satisfied Amazon shopper: "...They’re easy to use and have good connection with my iPhone."

While Beats is owned by Apple, the Powerbeats is Beats’ effort to beat (still with us?) Apple’s AirPods — and some shoppers think they do.

"I love working out and I hate headphones that can’t stay on," added another five-star reviewer. "These Powerbeats work better than AirPods because they stay on throughout your whole workout."
