As most people are constantly losing their headphone jack, finding a great pair of wireless earphones is a must. There are plenty big players on the market like Beats and Apple Airpods, but you really don’t have to spend that much for a great sound.
Great Choices Without Breaking the Bank
Below are some of my top picks if you’re in the market for new headphones but don’t want to spend a lot. All are under $50.
If you like the style of Powerbeats from Beats but don’t want to pay over $150 for them, check out these headphones from SENSO. They have a 4 star rating from over 24K reviews. Most people praise them for their high quality and great at sound for only $40.

If you really enjoy working out while traveling or in general these are our top choice for you. They are just barely $26 and have a splash proof build making them virtually sweat free and ok to use in the rain. The headphones provide nine hours of battery life on a two hour charge—perfect for charging between flights.

These are very similar to the TaoTronic earbuds. However they are a few dollars cheaper and they aren’t officially sweat or water proof. So keep that in mind if you prefer to use your headphones for working out. If you’re only going to use them while traveling or commuting these are perfect and can give you a few bucks more in your pocket.

Sodolife did a great job with these headphones. The headphones are great for listening alone with great sound quality, but they also have a sharing mode. One twist and the headphones can double as a Bluetooth speaker. All of this for under $50.

You don’t have to buy Apple Airpods to get a true wireless experience. There are many different options on Amazon and Ebay that offer a very similar experience. My favorite are the Aowin earbuds. These earbuds are wireless and also have silicone inserts that help keep them in your ear. They also have a case that provides an additional charge, giving you a total of 12-15 hours of listening.
Amazon User Review: “Amazing! Beyond expectations! Very user friendly and easy to use and set up. The design is superior to other wireless earbud designs that are basically regular earphones without the cord. ”
Price: Starting at $35.99 on Amazon
There have been so many times while traveling or planning to work out that my wireless headphones are dead when I need them most. If that seems to happen to you—these are the perfect headphones. They charge 4x faster than most headphones. Also if you need to use them quickly a five minute charge will give you up to two hours of battery life.
Amazon User Review: “WOW! I just received these and I couldn't be more impressed. I was looking for an affordable set of headphones for travel. Great find.”
