Finding a stellar pair of wireless earbuds — ones that rival AirPods, say — for just $10 seems like a dream. Well, consider this a wakeup call, because these top-rated Otium Wireless Earbuds are on sale for just $10, down from $20 at Amazon. You'll save 50 percent if you grab them before someone else does. And someone might, judging from past experience — over 1,200 Amazon shoppers have given these buds a perfect five-star rating.

And if you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. 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 sound, great battery life

The Otium Wireless Earbuds have won shoppers over for their outstanding clarity, deep bass, secure fit and battery life — they'll last for 25 hours a pop.

"These are excellent sounding, well-fitting, solid earbuds," raved a delighted five-star reviewer. "The earbuds are simple to place in the ear, thanks to the control touch arms. They fit very securely and the shape makes it so easy to orientate the speaker. They are also very light, but the sound is very clear and plays loud. No problems with battery. It connects quickly to Bluetooth..."

Tough cookies

The Otium Wireless Earbuds are durable — and waterproof. In fact, you can submerge them in nearly five feet of water for about 30 minutes and they’ll still be ready to go. They’re so tough that even athletes swear by them.

"I've taken these out for a run a few times and also to the gym," shared a satisfied Amazon shopper. "So, they’ve been subjected to quite a bit of sweat and they’re still working fine. They fit quite securely while exercising, and I haven't had an issue with them falling out..."

Some shoppers say the Otium Wireless Earbuds rival Apple's famous pair. "I bought these for my husband because he said he wanted something that stayed in his ears better than the AirPods and he absolutely loves them," added another five-star reviewer. "The sound quality is excellent and they do completely block out outside noise which is a huge perk at our gym that plays music we don’t like. I can’t recommend these enough for the price!"

As one savvy Amazon shopper put it, "These are really nifty!"

Our advice? Grab these for friends, family and yourself before they sell out.
