Are you still untangling your earbuds, catching the wire on doorknobs as you walk around the house, and generally living in a tech universe others left four years ago? It’s almost 2021—time to step up to the convenience of wireless earbuds.
We’ve found a pair that stands up to the likes of Apple, Google and Samsung. Meet the exceptional Kurdene True Wireless Earbuds, which are on sale for $17, or $23 off at Amazon, today only.
And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Audio quality & controls
The Kurdene True Wireless Earbuds deliver smooth, well-balanced audio that’s great for music and podcasts. Tones are clear, bass is punchy, and you can roam up to 50 feet from your smartphone or tablet while listening. And shoppers are loving them.
“The craftsmanship quality is high and they have a nice design. The haptic controls on each earbud work flawlessly and the overall ease-of-use is solid,” shared a delighted Amazon shopper. “The sound is great! Some pretty nice bass for sure. I noticed it right away. I've been enjoying listening to Spotify though these and they're definitely some of the best Bluetooth earbuds I've used for my music in recent memory.”
Meanwhile, these Kurdene True Wireless Earbuds even go a step further than the Apple AirPods with heavy-duty waterproofing. In fact, you can actually dunk these earbuds in more than three feet of water for 30 minutes and they’ll still work and sound great when you pull them back out.
“I use these bluetooth earbuds in the pool while doing individual water aerobics and the sound is great,” raved a five-star reviewer. “I've only had one plug fall out of my ear while jumping around in the pool. It took me about 30 seconds until I could rescue it from the bottom of the pool. It stopped working and wouldn't connect via Bluetooth to my phone until it dried out completely (about 24 hours), but I was able to use it again the next day. It paired fine with the other one the next day.”
So no worries about sweating during your workouts, getting caught in the rain, or even using your earbuds in the shower (if that’s your thing). Now that’s something you can’t do with AirPods!
Amazon shoppers say the Kurdene True Wireless Earbuds—which feature up to 24 hours of playback—rival Apple AirPods (and Samsung Galaxy Buds too) for their ease-of-use, compact design, and overall tip-top audio quality. They offer impressive audio, waterproofing, and a snug and secure fit at an unbelievable price—especially that they’re on sale for 56 percent off.
“These work way better than expected,” wrote another five-star reviewer. “This is a steal! I wanted some earbuds for using at work and these are great! I use mine on the lowest volume and I can still hear the music nice and loud.”
