Skullcandy Indy earbuds and case
Sarah Tew/CNET

These days it seems like everyone is ditching the cord for the convenience of true wireless headphones and earbuds. While AirPods are popular, they do cost a lot. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative to AirPods and don't need all the features of the premium models, you can save some serious cash on competitors. Right now at Woot, you can get a pair of Skullcandy Indy True Wireless Earbuds for $20, a 74% savings. This one-day deal ends tonight or when it's sold out.

These earbuds feature a comfortable, noise-isolating design with silicone tips and they get up to 4 hours of battery life on a single charge, with up to 16 hours when using the charging case. Theyr'e sweat-, water- and dust-resistant with an IP55 rating, making them a great option to use at the gym or on your commute. These earbuds also come with removable stability ear gels for a more secure fit. Touch controls allow easy access to call, track, volume and voice assistant functions. 

While these earbuds can also be used for calling, it's worth noting that this feature works best in quiet settings. CNET's David Carnoy observed that "callers sometimes said they had trouble hearing me in noisier environments," so if you plan to primarily use your earbuds for conferencing and phone calls, there may be better options out there.

But if you're looking for true wireless earbuds for listening to music or podcasts, these are a solid choice. The sound doesn't quite compare with what you'll get from premium earbuds, as there isn't as much bass as you'll hear from other models in the $80-and-up price range, but the sound quality isn't bad, and with a markdown as big as this one, these minor issues don't diminish the other features that Skullcandy's Indy earbuds get right.
