The Powerbeats3 Defiant Black-Red Bluetooth in-ear headphones (opens in new tab) have dropped to $79.99 on Amazon. That's the best price we've ever seen for these sporty earbuds. The black (opens in new tab) and white (opens in new tab) versions are available for just 410 more, matching a one-day sale at Best Buy (opens in new tab). The Defiant Black-Red earbuds are actually $200 at Best Buy and more regularly sell for around $130, although they dropped to $100 for the holiday season. The $80 price is a new low for this special edition color.

With a 12-hour battery life, fast charging, water-resistance, and a secure fit, these are the perfect earphones for your next workout. We've never seen them drop lower than this outside of refurbished deals, but this price likely won't last long.

The Powerbeats3 use Class 1 Bluetooth technology so you know you're getting a low latency connection that won't drop or interrupt your music. You'll always be connected, and the Bluetooth can remember the devices it was paired to. Take calls, control your music, and activate Siri on your Apple mobile device with RemoteTalk.

You will get 12 hours of playtime on a single charge of the battery with these headphones, and if you just need a quick boost you can use Fast Fuel to get a full hour of playtime after just five minutes of charging. You'll love Fast Fuel the first time you accidentally forget to charge your headphones overnight and find them drained right before you want to hit the gym.

The headphones are rated for sweat and water resistance, which is also great if you plan on taking them to the gym. Or outside. Or anywhere they might get some water splashed on them. The headphones won't fall out, either. They have a flexible, secure fit with ear hooks designed to maximize comfort and stability. Run your heart out and be confident knowing the Powerbeats3 are coming with you. The headphones are covered by a one-year warranty.
