Not everyone wants true wireless earbuds like the amazing AirPods Pro or the sublime Jabra 65t. Tethered Bluetooth earphones cost a lot less money, and because they have a wire running from ear to ear, they’re less likely to get lost. This is why our editors perked up when they saw these Soundcore Spirit X Wireless Sport Earphones on Amazon for just $25 with the help of an on-page coupon. This is an all-time low price for a set of earphones that had been resting at $40 for most of the year.
Built by Anker’s audio brand, the Soundcore Spirit X feature IP68 waterproof prorection, so they can survive water submerssion. Play time on a single charge is rated at 18 hours. Earhooks help ensure the earphones will stay put during intense workouts.
Sound quality? We haven’t tested these in person, but Soundcore says they are “powered by oversized dynamic drivers that are 40 percent larger than standard ones. Their composite Bio-cellulose diaphragm produces highly-detailed treble, and is surrounded by an ultra-elastic material that increases bass output.”
Across nearly 50 Amazon user reviews, these earphones get 4 stars out of 5.
