Seems like everywhere you go, you see people with the white ear fangs known as AirPods. Don’t expect that to change anytime soon – some analysts expect Apple to ship as many as 80 million earbuds next year, and up to 110 million in 2021.

AirPods are basically synonymous with wireless audio. But they’re over $150 a pop, so not everybody can get in on the fun. Brio True Wireless Earbuds offer an alternative that’s got plenty of the same features, and even more battery life, at a fraction the price.

Brio earbuds manage to fit big sound into a sleek wireless design, sporting Bluetooth 5.0 tech for a solid, clear connection. By comparison, AirPods use Bluetooth 4.2. Even better, they support up to 50 hours of on-the-go listening thanks to the included charging case. Compare that to Cupertino’s version, which last about 24 hours in total. And since they’re sweatproof, they’re as perfect for workouts as they are for commutes. That’s a lot of advantages, so you’d probably expect them to be more expensive, right? Actually, they’re less than half that price when you use the code ‘SEMIANNUAL’ at checkout.
