Wireless Headphones for Every Budget Photo by bruce mars on

We've all seen it -- someone running or exercising with headphone wires dangling from their ears like Mardi Gras beads. And most of us have probably been there, too. Though this was a necessity in the past, we no longer need wires in the present. You also no longer have to worry about tangled headphone messes in your pocket. Why?

Because we now have wireless headphones.

Wireless headphones are the modern way to go, especially because they make wireless headphones in any style: from your typical earbud to nostalgic over the ear. However, there's a misconception that these nifty gadgets come at a hefty cost. Not always true. You can find a sleek, budget-friendly pair.

The Lowdown on Budget-Friendly Headphones

We researched thoroughly and can confidently say that we have found a wide array of wireless headphones that pack an impressive set of features. Our research has led us to believe that it's not the cost that determines the effectiveness of a good pair of wireless headphones.


Sound quality is a major factor. Great bass, amplified sound, and noise cancellation played a big role in influencing our picks. Another critical aspect that we focused on was battery life and charging speed. Portability also played a big role. You can lose wireless headphones easily, especially earbuds.

We also looked at the cost. Each person has their idea of expensive and affordable, and we considered this. In our review, we included some pricier models to accommodate larger budgets, as well as budget-friendly pairs that pack a punch.

Lastly, we looked at the overall design -- we can't forget fashion. Looks play a huge role in choosing a great pair of wireless headphones, even if it's not the most important part of the headphone.

This review will help you settle on a great pair of wireless headphones to fit any budget.
