I'm always listening to music. If you see me out and about, there's a 99% chance I'm wearing earbuds. I have two pairs right now, but I'm not particularly married to either since they're more than a couple of years old and already showing their age. That's why I got excited about Jabra's new Elite 8 Active earbuds, and even more so when I saw that Jabra is giving them the Cyber Monday treatment with a pretty sweet discount just months after they launched.
The Jabra Elite 8 Active launched in September for $199 as some of the best workout earbuds you can find, so it's surprising to see a discount already go live. At Amazon, you can snag the black pair for as low as $135, which is a whopping 33% discount. The sale doesn't appear to apply to other colors.
As someone who works out and sweats a lot in a city where it is constantly wet and raining, having earbuds that have strong water resistance is important. Jabra is known for having pretty good audio, so I'm not too worried about that. My biggest concern when buying earbuds is battery life, and these seem to allay those worries with 8 hours on a single charge with ANC on. I hardly use ANC, so I'm probably looking at closer to 14 hours per charge, which isn't bad at all.
However, if you're looking to save even more money, Jabra has plenty of other options available that are on sale. The Jabra Elite 7 Active may be a couple of years old now, but they're still great earbuds that offer much of the same as the Elite 8 Active but for much less. Jabra also makes some of the best cheap wireless earbuds around, and you can find some pretty nice discounts on models like the Jabra Elite 4 Active.

If you're into being active, these earbuds may not be the newest, but they will still get the job done. They have great battery life, hybrid ANC, and a durable build that will withstand nearly anything you put them through. Plus, they come in some nice colors.
But there are plenty of other Cyber Monday deals on wireless earbuds, so don't just limit yourself to Jabra, with companies like Samsung and Sony offering some great discounts.
