Best Wireless Earbuds under $100

A few years ago, we would have discouraged you from buying earbuds. Problems with Bluetooth communication, build quality is so-so, prices are too high but at the same time, wireless earbuds could hold a charge for a maximum of an hour or two. But today is not so. And we can’t imagine how we could use headphones with wires!

Thanks to Bluetooth enhancements, the latest series of wireless earbuds not only stay connected in any situation, but sound as good as their wired counterparts.

A wireless pair of earbuds is still more expensive than a similar wired model. But they provide greater freedom of movement, which makes them ideal for going to the gym or while traveling.

What parameters should I look for when buying wireless earbuds? And which models are in the top today? Let’s find out.

Silicon Power TWS BP82: Complete Review
The Silicon Power BP82 headset can be recommended for use during self-isolation. It will help drown out extraneous sounds when you need to concentrate or call colleagues. At present, the average market price of the device is $30s. It is much cheaper than Apple and Samsung counterparts, but you need to understand that you will not get the convenience and quality of AirPods for this price.

Honor Choice True Wireless Stereo Earbuds Headset Review: An Inexpensive Model
In addition to its long name, the Honor Choice True Wireless Stereo Earbuds headset has several exciting features. It is inexpensive ($33.60 in the official amazon store of the brand and at its partners), works correctly, is made in a restrained design - it will look quite good with casual clothes and a business suit. Of course, there are no "frills" in modern codecs or active noise reduction. But many do not need them. But the autonomy, which is important for most users, is quite adequate for its price range. Again, the build quality is good, and there is moisture protection. The sound is peculiar, but what is a minus for one listener, for another - a pleasant feature. There are many fans of the emphasized "deep bass" in the world. They will like the headset. Well, and for the opportunity to get everything you need for a low price, you can also praise it, although you should not forget that any budget headphones are always compromises and nuances that will have to be put up with. The only question is how easy it will be to do it. In this case, the price-quality ratio is quite adequate.
PROS CONS
  • Solid build
  • Compact charging case
  • Earphone design
  • Good sound quality for the price
  • Call quality isn't bad at all
  • Battery life is not bad
  • Touch controls could be better
  • No wireless charging

RHA MA650 Wireless headphones: A Complete Review
Aluminum miniature headphone cases fit perfectly in the ears and do not cause any discomfort. The same can be said about the “collar.” After 10 minutes of listening to the headphones, you completely cease to notice on the neck. Yes, headphones color the sound noticeably, but they do it competently, making the sound brighter and more emotional without going over the edge of naturalness in the sound. It is noticeable that professionals who know their business worked on the sound. This kind of presentation is ideal for daily listening to music on your phone. I recommend buying the RHA MA650 Wireless headphones if you are looking for headphones for listening to music outside the home and want to get rid of annoying wires once and for all.
PROS CONS
  • Good sound quality;
  • Premium materials;
  • 3 years warranty;
  • Long battery life - up to 12 hours;
  • IPX4 splash and sweat proof;
  • Rich equipment.
  • The USB-C port is not covered with a cap.

Aukey EP-B80 Wireless Headphone: A Complete Review
Headphones Aukey EP-B80 will be a great purchase for those who do not want to spend a lot of money on a wireless model, but at the same time, want to get a fairly clear sound with support for many modern codecs. Do not forget that the headphones are suitable for sports, especially when using foam ear pads. The only serious drawback is the background white noise, which is heard in the pauses between tracks. During playback, it is not heard and, therefore, does not interfere with listening to music.
PROS CONS
  • Bluetooth 5.0
  • Support for aptX, aptX LL, AAC, and SBC codecs
  • IPX6 Water-Resistant
  • USB Type-C Charging
  • Standalone time
  • There is no way to connect headphones to two devices at once
  • White background noise

Aukey EP-B60 Wireless Headphone: A Complete Review
While the older Aukey EP-B80 boasts that it makes sense to listen to it for pleasure, the younger Aukey EP-B60s are uniquely designed for sports. When you’re running the tenth kilometer or lifting a heavy barbell, it’s not until you listen to the nuances and shades of the artist’s velvet baritone. You need power. You need pace, you need energy, and the EP-B60 provides it. Simultaneously, they are not expensive, and for those looking for headphones for sports, they will fit well. For the rest, I recommend a closer look at the EP-B80.
PROS CONS
  • Good build quality
  • IPX6 Water-Resistant
  • Magnets in housings
  • Auto-connect to source
  • USB Type-C
  • Long cable
  • The control panel distracts with its weight.

The Marshall Minor II wireless headphones made a mixed impression on me. On the one hand, they sound great, have a long working time, and look very nice. However, the most unpleasant moment was the lack of passive noise isolation, making the headphones unsuitable for everyday use while moving around the city. And let's not forget some of the nuances with the comfort of long-term use. If you are looking for wireless headphones with great sound and a nice design, you should pay attention to Marshall Minor II.
PROS CONS
  • Good sound quality
  • Modern Bluetooth 5 with aptX support
  • Stylish look
  • Unique control button on the remote with joystick functionality
  • Long battery life - up to 12 hours
  • Lack of passive sound insulation

Beyerdynamic Byron BT Wireless Earbuds: A Complete Review
Beyerdynamic engineers did an excellent job. They released wireless headphones with high sound quality and a good comfort level. Byron BT has no major flaws. If you find fault, you can recall the sound guide's non-standard size or a large control panel. Most importantly, these are excellent wireless headphones for everyday use: they have good passive noise isolation, a stylish appearance, take up very little space in your pocket, and work up to 7 hours on a single charge. I recommend the Beyerdynamic Byron BT to anyone looking for simple, stylish, modern, and balanced-sounding wireless headphones.
PROS CONS
  • Quality materials;
  • Balanced sound;
  • Long battery life - up to 7 hours;
  • The ability to use a voice assistant;
  • High level of comfort;
  • Convenient remote control.
  • In the cold season, you need to pay attention to how you put on your +so that they do not fall out of your ears;
  • Byron BT, the custom shape and size of the sound guide is not suitable for all earpads from other headphones or ordered separately.

Sony WI-SP600N Wireless Earbuds: A Complete Review
The Sony WI-SP600N headphones made a good impression on me, and this is one of the few sports headphones that could fully pass the test of exercises. In the 20 minutes of my intensive home training, I never had to correct them. The headphones in my ears sat like a glove and, at the same time, did not cause discomfort. Recall also the built-in active noise reduction system, IPX4 water protection, pleasant, energetic sound, and we will get some of the best sports wireless headphones at the moment. The only minus, in my opinion, is the large control panel. If it were smaller, then the Sony WI-SP600N would be the best sports model.

PROS

CONS

  • Nice powerful sound
  • Protection against water and sweat IPX4
  • Convenient, albeit large, control panel
  • Active noise reduction system
  • Convenient branded companion application for the phone
  • Original silicone ear cushions providing excellent passive sound insulation.
  • Large control panel
  • Battery life up to 6 hours
  • It is impossible to use headphones comfortably without silicone anchors.

Simgot MTW5 Wireless Headphone: A Complete Review
The Simgot MTW5 headphones turned out to be successful. They sit comfortably in your ears and have IPX5 water protection, which allows you to fully use them during sports. A pleasant and soft sound can captivate even a sophisticated listener, not to mention beginners in high-quality personal audio. The main thing to remember is that these are headphones for every day that are most likely to listen outside the home, and it is for these conditions that their sound is optimized. The only drawback I can mention physical buttons, clicking on which shifts the earphone in the ear. Otherwise, I liked the headphones. If you are looking for fully wireless headphones, be sure to pay attention to the Simgot MTW5.

PROS

CONS

  • Membrane Titanium Spray Driver
  • Convenient for long listening
  • Stylish look
  • Versatile, pleasant sound
  • The physical buttons, when pressed, noticeably displace the earphone in the ear and cause discomfort.
  • There is a sound delay when watching a video (SBC codec)

Who needs wireless earbuds?

Wireless earbudsare convenient for any situation when the user does not want to deal with wires that hinder movement, become tangled and ties you to a smartphone or player. For example, in the gym. And now that many phone makers are removing the headphone jack, the wireless option is a good way to ensure compatibility with any new device.

Wireless no longer means bad sound. Although the stereo Bluetooth data signal is compressed, various headphone manufacturers have found ways to amplify the signal. And for everyday listening, many of the latest wireless models that have been tested by experts sound just fine.

How long does it take to charge bluetooth earbuds?

Like any stand-alone device, Bluetooth earbuds require regular recharging. Duration of operation depends on the battery capacity and model of headphones. There are already models on the market that work without recharging up to 20 hours. On average, most modern wireless headphones last about 6 hours without recharging. At the same time, many models only need 30 minutes – 1 hour to restore a 100 percent charge.

Some manufacturers include a portable charging case and a 3.5mm detachable cable so that users can use their wireless earbuds with minimal interruption.

Noise suppression

Active noise canceling uses external microphones to collect and analyze noise. The technology allows you to generate a backward wave in the earbuds, which suppresses extraneous sounds.

Previously, it was an expensive, cumbersome technology that could not be found in wireless headphones. But that all changed a few years ago.

We will be happy to hear your thoughts
