It’s one of the best early Prime Day deals on workout headphones.

The JLab Go Air Sport adopts the style of workout headphones with flexible hooks that wrap around the outside of your ears. It makes them more comfortable and can help stabilize them during runs, aerobics or other fitness routines with lots of quick or jerky movements.

Although you won’t get sound quality equivalent to high-end models that cost hundreds of dollars, we found them to sound much better than expected (a pleasant surprise for this price range). They have three EQ modes (Signature, Balanced and Bass Boost), which you can cycle through on the device — no need to mess with an app.

The JLab Go Air Sport is IP55-rated for water and dust resistance, so they should be fine if you get caught in the rain.

The JLab earphones have a solid eight hours of playtime on the headphones themselves, and the charging adds another 24 hours. However, one of our biggest gripes is that they have a bulky case with a USB-A cable instead of USB-C. But at this price, that’s a relatively minor gripe.
