We love everything about AirPods Pro except their price. If you, too, balk at spending $249 for Apple’s finest, give the incredibly affordable Flux 7 TWS noise-canceling earbuds a shot.

They’re waterproof and sweatproof, so they’re perfect for the gym. And they even boast a feature AirPods don’t: Their high-capacity charging case doubles as a power bank that can give your iPhone a boost.

They make a perfect stocking stuffer for anybody with an iPhone or Android device, and you can pick up a pair for less than $23 until December 17!

More crystal-clear sound, less unwanted noise

Don’t get us wrong: AirPods Pro still stand as our favorite earbuds for anyone who uses Apple devices. Cupertino’s secret sauce is simply irresistible if expense is no object.

However, the Flux 7 earbuds offer many of the same features at a much lower price. These extremely inexpensive earbuds come with Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility and are ready to pair up with your favorite iOS or Android device. (They work with Macs, too,)

Once they recognize your device, there’s no need to fiddle with settings. As soon as you take them out of the charging case, your Flux 7s power up and pair automatically.

Of course, the state-of-the-art noise reduction is an attractive feature for exercise buffs and working professionals. The earbuds automatically put out white noise that counters interference from outside sound, letting you focus on your workout soundtrack or any task you have at hand. Plus, the IPX4 waterproofing level allows the Flux 7s to withstand sweat and rain!

Even the controls are designed to help you get in the zone. If you need to make calls or change tracks, a simple two-second press is all it takes to enable voice commands.

Outside the charging case, the earbuds’ 2,000 mAh polymer lithium batteries can deliver five hours of playtime. One hour is all it takes to fill them up, and they automatically start charging the moment you put the earbuds away. And, unlike AirPods, you can even use the Flux 7 case as a power bank to charge your iPhone.
