If you're in the market for a set of workout earbuds or just want to ditch your old wired set for something wireless without spending a bunch of money, you need to check out Amazon's current deal on the Powerbeats.

Right now, you can snag a set for just $79.99 (opens in new tab) there. That's the lowest we've seen them drop since they were released last year and almost 50% off their usual retail price. The discount only applies to the black colorway and there's no telling exactly how long it will last.

Beats Powerbeats Wireless Earphones (opens in new tab)

The refreshed Powerbeats wireless earphones offer Apple’s H1 chip and up to 15-hours of listening time per charge. They also support Siri and are sweat and water-resistant. This is the best price we've seen yet.

Though they might not technically be true wireless earbuds since they have a cord between the two earbuds, the 4th-gen Powerbeats utilize the same smart pairing tech as Apple's AirPods and are a significant upgrade over the previous-gen Powerbeats 3.

The 4th-generation model features Apple's H1 chip, the same that is in the true wireless Powerbeats Pro, which makes switching between devices and answering calls significantly faster and the Bluetooth connection is more stable with lower latency.

The new earbuds have also ditched Micro-USB in favor of Apple's Lightning connector for recharging which is more convenient for iPhone users since you can just take the one cable with you when you travel.

Battery life has also been improved — bumped up to 15 hours of playback versus the roughly 12 hours that the last-gen version got you per charge. In addition to lasting longer, the new Powerbeats also get you back to listening more quickly with a 'Fast Fuel' feature that gives you an hour of playback from just 5 minutes connected to power.

Powerbeats 4 also have a redesigned ear hook and base which help them to stay put in your ears no matter what kind of workout you're doing, and they are also sweat and water-resistant so you can use them with confidence at the gym or out on a run. The buttons protrude more than on their predecessor for easier find-ability while mid-jog and there is a playback control button on the front for pausing, playing, and answering calls.

The deal at Amazon is one of the best Beats deals around right now so you ought to make the most of it while you still can.
