Another “true wireless” pair, for the budget-minded travelers out there. At only $37.99, you’ll be able to save some cash for your vacation if you buy these wireless earbuds! With a little less play time, you may have to charge them more often than some of the other wireless headphones out there, but it may be worth it for all of the money you’ll save. Truly wireless, portable charging, and comfortable.

User Review: “I purchased these mostly for traveling on flights and they have worked great so far. I have used them for 6 flights so far, all 2-3 hours long and these have worked great. The sound quality seems good to me for small portable earbuds and they are comfortable to wear and connected to my phone right away. Other earbuds I have owned have tended to hurt my ears after about an hour but I haven't had that issue with these. The bass is also better than I expected for the price.I like that you push them into their portable battery pack base and they recharge on the go. Also like the small carrying bag so you can keep the charging cord, spare silicone ear pieces and the ear buds all together on the go.”

Price: From $37.99 on Amazon

Bose QuietComfort 35

Bose QuietComfort 35

Some people hate earbuds. If that’s the case, then try these headphones from Bose. With noise cancelling, voice commands, and up to 20 hours of playtime, these are perfect for a long flight. Available in 2 colors.

User Review: “I am in love with these headphones. I originally hesitated because of the cost but because I travel so much, and use 2 cell phones (one for business and one for personal), I decided to bite the bullet and hope for the best. These do not disappoint! I have worn them on various flights and they have done a great job of canceling out the crying kids while I listen to music.”

COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth Headphones

Cowin E7

If you don’t want to break the bank with a fuller coverage headphone, consider these noise cancelling headphones at just $66.00. Active noise cancelling technology, a built in microphone, a “professional protein earpad and 90° swiveling earcup,” and over 30 hours of playtime make these ideal for the budget traveller. Available in 4 colors.

User Review: “I would like to say that the appearance and comfort of these headphones are great and the bluetooth function is easy to use. I just spent the entire day traveling on planes and in airports and the battery life is very good. At one stop I did add a bit of charge to them but just to be safe type thing and I don't believe I would have had an issue if I didn't. They also come with a plug so that if you wanted to use them with a unit that had no bluetooth, they would also work.”

Price: Starting at $66.00 on Amazon

Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2

Plantronics BackBeat

Another fuller coverage headphone, that you may want to take with you on your next flight. The Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 comes with a travel sleeve, and the earcups swivel flat for easier storage. With up to 24 hours of play time, active noise cancelling, and a smart sensor that automatically pauses your music when you take them off, and restarts when you put them back on, these headphones are perfect for any trip.

User Review: “I did a lot of research on how to get the most bank for my buck when it comes to noise canceling bluetooth headphones. i travel a lot an I also like that these headphones can become wired and plug into an airplane's entertainment system and still give me the noise canceling effect. These are great and I would recommend them to anyone. I would also add that they are cheaper than the competitors and offer comparable performance.”
