By now, you’ve probably chosen your song of the summer. Personally, I’ve been on a slam metal kick, but Kendrick Lamar’s “Not Like Us” has been hitting just right while driving around with the windows down. Whatever you’re listening to right now, it deserves the kind of sound quality you get from a pair of Status headphones or earbuds. Right now, Popular Science readers get 25 percent off three of the company’s most popular offerings by using the code PopSci25 at checkout. The offer includes the Between 3ANC earbuds, the Between Pro Wireless Earbuds, and the Core ANC headphones. The deal goes through June 18, 2024, so grab a pair for a dad, a grad, or just someone rad (which could be you).

Between 3ANC earbuds $134.25 (Use code PopSci25 at checkout, was $250)

Active noise canceling is crucial for any high-end pair of earbuds. Need proof? Sit next to someone playing smartphone games with the sound coming through the speaker for the entirety of a six-hour cross-country flight. The Between 3ANC earbuds offer burly noise-canceling that can negate up to 38 decibels. Even the angriest crying baby isn’t going to overpower that.

The true test of an earbud is its sound quality. The Between 3ANC employs three total drivers, including one dynamic drivers and a pair of balanced armatures. That gives these buds lots of dynamic range to play with so the bass can boom and the highs can sparkle without losing everything in-between. Rounding out the spec sheet, you get six built-in microphones for clear calls, an IPX5 toughness rating to help them stand up to sweat and weather, and up to 12 hours of playback per charge (eight hours with ANC enabled). All of that comes wrapped up in a modern design that comes in both onyx and bone colorways. Your summer outfits will feel incomplete without them.
