A comfortable, reliable pair of wireless headphones is just about the best workout buddy you can ask for, and it just so happens that Amazon's Deal of the Day is the Jaybird X2, one of our favorite pairs of earbuds for athletes. The 24-hour sale (for Prime members only) applies to all the colors and you can pick one up for $79.99.

That's nearly half off the retail price, for Bluetooth earbuds that offer a ton of improvements over the previous model, including a new matte finish, better sweat-proofing, a slightly more comfortable ear fin design, a better carrying case and improved battery life -- 8 hours to be exact, which is great for long workouts or just wearing them around town.

Even though a new model, the Jaybird Freedom, is now available, the X2's are still one of the best-sounding wireless in-ear options out there and we doubt Jaybird will make a huge leap in audio quality for the follow-up. So if you're on a tight budget but need a new pair of earbuds for the gym, the X2 is definitely worth your consideration.
