Beats is tough to beat for street-cred plus value in a set of headphones, and its Powerbeats3 wireless sport earbuds not only boast a winning aesthetic but also a lightweight, sweat-resistant, workout-friendly build and an impressive 12-hour battery life.

The popular wireless earbuds are currently hugely discounted in the John Lewis clearance sale, down from their original £170 price to just £79.

That's no less than a 54 per cent saving.

Beats' flagship earbuds are sport-friendly and have a 12-hour battery life, with a Fast Fuel feature that offers an hour of music playback from just a 5-minute charge. The remote also allows you to activate Siri on an Apple iPhone. A 54% saving.

We praised the Powerbeats3 Wireless headphones for their "good fit, great battery and bassy, fun sound" at their original price tag.

Under intense review, we concluded that the Powerbeats3 wireless headphones are "supremely practical buds with a more-than-decent sound" offering "solid fit and fulsome delivery that’s ideal for fitness fiends" – even if we noted that rivals at that money offered more clarity and dynamics. 

Still, while they may not be the newest or absolute best wireless earbuds you can buy, their huge discount certainly helps their appeal.
