These earbuds created by Beats by Dre engineers are just as awesome and cost a whole lot less

With so many manufacturers out there these days, it's tough to know who to trust in the ultra-competitive wireless earbuds market. If you've never heard of LinearFlux, you may soon. That's because it's a company with a stellar pedigree whose co-founders were two of the engineers behind the original success of two audio houses you likely have heard of: Beats by Dr. Dre; and Monster Products.

They struck out on their own to start LinearFlux and created the HyperSonic Lite True wireless earphones. These ultra-powerful, yet ergonomically comfortable earbuds are on sale now for $59.99, 25 percent off their regular price.

As you'd expect from seasoned engineers, sound quality is job no. 1 with the Hypersonic Lites. Sporting Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, these headphones offer extended range without the dropouts you find in competing models. Meanwhile, these buds also feature LinearFlux's exclusive DL02 Immersive Sound Engine, which connects the unit wirelessly to all the popular streaming music services. All you've got to do is turn on and tune in to listen to your favorite Apple Music, Spotify or Pandora channels.

Of course, great sound always starts with a proper fit. The HyperSonic Lites' lightweight design is reinforced to withstand sweat and water, and crafted with soft ear tips to allow comfortable listening for up to eight hours on a single charge.

The HyperSonic Lite earphones are currently $20 off retail, down to just $59.99.
