There are a lot of traits to look for in earbuds. Some people prioritize audio quality above all else, while others are looking for comfort and convenience. In some cases, the most important trait is battery life — and that’s an area where the Baseus Wireless Earbuds rise to the top, with a whopping 140 hours of playback time on a single charge. Interested? You can pick up a pair yourself at Amazon’s early Black Friday sale for just $21. Want to know even more? Our resident tech expert Rick Broida wrote a full review of them here.
Why is this a good Black Friday deal?
Not only is this a fantastic deal overall but it’s also the lowest price on record for this pair. The sale and the extra on-page coupon together knock nearly 60% off the price!
Why do I need these?
For starters, these earbuds are jam-packed with great features, but their standout quality is the battery life. If you know you’re going to be away from charging stations for a while, the case carries a whopping 140 hours of life. For reference, that’s about 3,000 songs or 75 movies. You’ll get eight hours of charge from each earbud, and then you can fully charge the case in just 1.5 hours to top it off.
Thanks to the ergonomic design, they’re comfortable in your ear whether you’re sitting at your desk and working or you’re pumping iron in the gym. The IPX6 rating means they’ll stand up to rain and sweat, and there are three different ear tip sizes (small, medium and large) that you can try out find the perfect fit.
The noise cancellation features can cut out up to 48 decibels of noise. Built-in microphones also monitor your voice and block out background sound from your calls to ensure you come through crystal-clear — this also makes these quite useful for recording audio.
What reviewers say
“I am in love with these earbuds! The app is a game changer with the ability to update the earbuds and control the level of noise canceling. Yes, you can actually control how well they cancel noise. At the gym, the music is eh but the challenge I have had is that with my more expensive earbuds, on noise canceling mode I can still hear the [gym] music. With the Baseus earbuds, the fit is perfect and I can set noise canceling to the max,” raved one fan.
“The noise canceling works well,” said one spouse. “I bought these for the active noise canceling to block out my husband’s snoring. I listen to TV while in bed and the ANC does what I needed.”
The only gripe any user had was about the size of the case. “The charger/battery case is a bit larger than the AirPods, and it appears currently there isn’t a cover available (my preference is to have a light color cover with a spot to hook the case to the bag).”
