Travel Tech: 4 Great Deals on Headphones Today

Written by Charlie

Here are 4 deals on headphones/earbuds that can work great for travel. They are all under $150 and have a lot to offer no matter the device you use them with. Some of these deals are only around today so check them out.

Thanks to the “courage” of smartphone manufacturers in removing headphone jacks (yes, Apple actually said they had the “courage” to make that move), wireless headphones and earbuds are quickly becoming more popular and mainstream.

With that popularity, we have also been seeing more and more deals as well. If you are in the market for a wireless pair, these deals may work for you. However, there is also the great Bose earbuds that are wired that work great as well.

Travel Tech: 4 Great Deals on Headphones Today

Jabra Elite 65T

Link: Jabra Elite 65T for $119

I have not used the Jabra Elite earbuds but have heard good things about them. At this price, they are even cheaper than the manufacturer refurbished pair currently being offered on eBay! According to the specs, you can get up to 5 hours each charge and the carry case will give you a total of 15 hours before you need to plug them in.

If you are going to do fitness activities with them, Jabra has you covered as well with this version in a sport version. They are not on sale ($189) but if you buy them with an Amazon Prime credit card, you will get 20% back.

2018 Samsung Gear X

Link: Samsung Gear X Earbuds – $96

When these first came out, many people disliked the short battery life. I have never tried these so I cannot speak to it but it seems that improvements have been made. Not only that, but these have 4GB of storage for music so you can even go without a phone or MP3 player (though more GPS watches are coming with music onboard anyway).

These are open box but it says they are fully tested. Since this is by an eBay seller in the daily deals section, that typically means you can trust them more.

Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Earbuds

Link: Bose SoundSport Free Wireless Earbuds – $130

These are on the way to me to test out and I am looking forward to it as I have heard a lot of great things about them. They may be around at this price for a while longer as this has been the price on and off. It is a good deal, even though they are refurbished. But, they are sold by Bose so I have complete confidence in them (Bose has been fantastic in standing behind their products for me).

If you would rather buy new, you can do that for $170 from Amazon. This is a $30 discount from regular price.

Bose QuietComfort 20 Noise Cancelling Earbuds

Link: Bose QuietComfort 20 – $149

This price has also been around for a while (on and off) and these are great earbuds for travel or just cancelling any noise near you. Unfortunately, right now, only the model for Samsung/Android devices is on sale. The only difference between this and the Apple models are how the volume/play buttons work. They will not work for Apple devices but, of course, the headphones still work just the same.

New, these costs $249, but you can get them direct from Bose as refurbs now for $149. I have them and love them.

If you are looking for some earbuds for on the go, these are some pretty good deals and all for under $150.
