Know what's one of the best noise-canceling earbuds money can buy? The Sony WF-1000XM3. Those little guys are known for their premium audio quality, comfortable design and world-class noise-cancellation that blocks out just about all background and ambient chatter. However (and for many of us, it's a big "however"), they're not designed for workouts, vigorous exercise or running.

Enter the Sony WF-SP800N True Wireless Sports In-Ear Noise-Canceling Earbuds, the 1000XM3's sportier siblings. They have the same premium audio and noise-canceling but are designed to be sweat-proof, splash-proof and water-resistant to go that extra mile, or two, or five.

Another extra? They’re on sale for $98, or $102 off, at Amazon. This is the all-time lowest price on these super-popular premium wireless earbuds. And there's adulation to go along with that economy: They’ve earned a flawless five-star rating from 1,350 reviewers.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No sweat (heh). You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

Great for workouts

Normally going for $200, these Sony true wireless earbuds are ideal for workouts, thanks to their top-rated sweat-proofing. You can schvitz all over these buds and the premium audio quality and deep bass will remain crystal clear and clean. How good are they? Well, some shoppers pick these over Apple's AirPods Pro.

"My husband loves these. He really wanted the Apple AirPods, but they are so expensive and the older models are not water resistant," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "These are, and he wears them to work out and sweats a lot, and has not had any issues with them. They do have excellent sound and are definitely noise-canceling..."

Long battery life with quick charging

The Sony WF-SP800Ns boast a whopping 26 hours of battery life via their charging case, as well as an additional 60 minutes of playback on just a quick10-minute zap. This comes in handy when you just need to listen to an episode of your favorite podcasts or make a dent in a recorded meeting when you're running around and don’t have time for a full charge-up.

"These sound amazing, and battery life is long. Charging in the case is pretty fast too," raved a delighted five-star reviewer whose found a way to power up and rock out simultaneously. "...I wear them for 10-12 hours at a time and just charge one ear at a time towards the end of my work shift, so I can listen to music the whole time. Absolutely recommend."

At $98 (was $200), the Sony WF-SP800N True Wireless Sports In-Ear Noise-Canceling Earbuds are great for gym workouts and long runs around the neighborhood. They come with a charging case, two pairs of eartips and a charging cable, while the Sony earbuds comes in blue and orange (an Amazon exclusive) — which some shoppers love.

"...We like the orange color because they are easy to find when you lay them down somewhere," continued the Amazon shopper.
