'Excellent comfort': These fan-favorite JBL headphones are just $25 — a ridiculous 50% off

At the risk of stating the obvious, JBL is one of the most well-known brands in audio, and for good reason. The company’s speakers and audio accessories typically have thousands of five-star ratings on Amazon. JBL's over-ear cans are especially popular and Amazon has several models on sale for up to 50% off. Looking to take your music-listening experience to the next level, or finally confront that list of audiobooks you've been wanting to "read"? Here's the gear you need.

These tres affordable 'phones are the perfect melding of budget-friendly and brawny. A two-hour charge-up can yield as much as 40 hours of playtime, while Bluetooth 5 technology keeps you engaged, no matter what the conditions.

Why is this a good deal?

The 510BTs deliver superb performance and battery life on a budget, even at full price — but $25 is just about the lowest price we've ever seen for 'em.

Why do I need these?

On-ear headphones typically offer a more immersive audio experience than earbuds, and some users find them a lot more comfortable. Well, JBL's Tune 510BTs are better than most. How? Let us count the ways. They offer the brand's signature Pure Bass sound and have wireless Bluetooth 5.0 streaming. Then there's their workhorse of a battery, which will give you up to 40 hours of listening time on a single charge. How about some voice assistance? Just press the button on the ear cup and get Siri or Google on the job.

You can even switch between two source devices with ease, and top off the battery in just two hours. Don't have that long? A five-minute charge will give you two more hours of playback time.

These JBL cans will both surprise and delight you with their performance — and their price.

What reviewers say

“These are very good headphones, and I don't just mean based on the price,” said one shopper. “These are all-around great headphones! I had Beats for four years that just fell apart. Searched on a budget and decided on these, and I don't feel like I am sacrificing at all. Very comfortable. Not tight on my head at all. I travel on airplanes twice a month, so I wear these for hours on end. No earache or head pressure. I also like that the controls aren't directly on the side, so when I doze on a plane the volume doesn't get adjusted or pause is hit. ... Sound is crisp, bass is bumping, volume is perfect — no complaints!”

"Excellent comfort, ease of use, and the sound quality is amazing. These definitely have decent bass. I’m not an earbud person, so these are perfect. While it’s true they are not as easy to carry around, they’re worth it and won’t fall out of your ears or hurt like some buds. They fit on your ears and cover your ear opening rather than go over your entire ear. I found them to be quite comfortable, and they'll stay on your head while doing activities. If I lost or broke these I’d buy them again," wrote one five-star fan.

Another gave us this earful: "Really love it! Sound quality is awesome. The only downside is the extremely short charging cord."
