Apple's AirPods have proven to be extremely popular, but they aren't perfect for everyone. Be it the shape, the battery life, or their ability to stay in your ears during your workouts, you may find that they aren't quite right for you. Instead, you might want to check out the Powerbeats Pro true wireless earphones. Right now you can save $50 off their usual price at Google Express thanks to a price drop to $227.25 and code 19LABOR12 taking an additional 12% off for a limited time. They regularly sell for $250 at Amazon and directly at Apple and this is the best deal we've seen on them since they launched.
If you want a pair of wire-free headphones for using in the gym or out on a run, and AirPods don't do it for you, the Powerbeats Pro are here for you.

Built with sport in mind, the Powerbeats Pro have the same Apple smarts as AirPods but in a design that prioritizes comfort and stability. They have the Apple H1 chip inside for easy pairing with your iPhone or Apple Watch, though they will work perfectly over Bluetooth with any other device. They maintain the ear-hook design from the previous-gen Powerbeats3 to keep them in your ears and they feature a reinforced design for sweat & water resistance during even the toughest workouts. There are physical buttons on the Powerbeats Pro for controlling playback or taking calls, or you can just say "Hey Siri" to summon the smart assistant if you're using them with an Apple device. You'll get 9 hours of play time on a single charge, with up to 24 hours total if you count the extra battery life of the included charging case.
