Falling squarely in the category of presents that look expensive even if they’re not, tech items are a smart, unexpected way to go for Mother’s Day—and they check every box on the little-known list of “great gift” requirements. Unfamiliar? We’ll get you up to speed. A great gift is 1) something your recipient would not think to buy for herself; 2) something that feels luxe; and 3) something that integrates into life easily (as in, doesn’t require a lot of ramping up—unlike, say, that potter’s wheel that calls for a basement reno, or the tennis racquet for the newbie who actually needs lessons to use it).
Especially in this moment of high-Zoom use, fantastic headphones or top-notch speakers are the answer—and this massive JBL sale offers options to accommodate any budget and make any mom smile.
Of course, there’s no law that says you can’t use a Mother’s Day sale to upgrade your own situation. The truth of the season is it’s the best time for women to focus on gifts-to-self, as we all know. If you’re in the market for wireless headphones, speakers, or earbuds, the discounts here should not be missed.
We combed through the sale and plucked some gems. Behold, the marked-down merch that will help you win Mother’s Day.
The JBL Tune 120TWS are a sleek and durable pair of premium noise-isolating true wireless earbuds that feel as good as they look. They deliver balanced tones and deep bass, so your music sounds precisely as it’s meant to be heard.
The JBL E55BT Quincy Jones Edition headphones are a good pick for moms who appreciate both style and function. They have a 20-hour battery life and wireless capabilities, soft headband and PU-leather (a mixture of polyurethane leather and real leather) ear cups that are designed for passive noise-isolation (they create a sound-blocking seal around your ears) and comfort on your ears. As for the sound quality, music producer Quincy Jones gives this pair his professional seal of approval.
“I bought this headset to be able to ride my mower and still hear my favorite podcasts with my phone,” shared a delighted reviewer. “It worked for that perfectly, and then I tried with my computer and iPad to listen to music and was quickly blown away with the sound quality that they produced. They pair very easily on any device. The built-in mic is crystal clear.”
Right now, these wireless headphones are half off with second-day free air shipping.
Your iPhone speakers just not cutting it? The JBL Go 2 Bluetooth speakers are designed to upgrade the audio on your mobile device. They’re even waterproof, so if your mom sings in the shower, she’ll have some musical accompaniment with her. Plus, they have a battery life of five hours.
“The sound is good, well-balanced for music and excellent for podcasts and vocal/radio programs. It is also beautiful, the cabinet has a flat, matte texture that’s easy to grip and clean,” added an excited shopper. “The GO-2 paired instantly and easily with my computer, phone and tablets. Charges fast and lasts a LONG time.”
And the best part? You have the option to personalize it with different colors, styles and even a personal message or photo. Just imagine getting this gift for your mother in her favorite color and with the word “Happy Mother’s Day” imprinted on its front grill.
Smart speakers can be pricy, but thanks to this Mother’s Day deal from JBL, you can pick one up for just $80 (was $120). The JBL Link Music is powered with the Google Assistant, so you can have instant access to the virtual assistant for up-to-the-minute news and weather reports, as well as hands-free control and navigation.
Now you and your mother will have Spotify, Pandora, YouTube Music or Apple Music on-demand with just the sound of her voice via Wi-Fi from the smart speaker or Bluetooth from a smartphone or tablet. The JBL Link Music provides more options to listen to your favorite music and podcasts at home.
“This is my first smart speaker and I am loving it,” added a satisfied JBL shopper. “I didn't think I would be using this as much. I love how it flawlessly connected to my Google Home setup and my other smart connected apps. It doesn't take much room at all. It looks great on my home music studio desk too.”
