While $50 dollars won’t buy you an over the top pair of wireless earbuds such as the Power Beats Pro, it is more than enough to get you decent sound quality and good battery life from upcoming brands who are trying to make a name for themselves. Introducing the best wireless earbuds under $50. When looking for wireless earbuds, there are a few things you need to consider.
- Is the sound quality good enough? Does it have a good bass and noise cancelling features, so you can listen to music in noisy areas.
- Does it have a good battery life? How long can your use them on a single charge?
- Does it have Bluetooth connectivity of 4.2 or higher? To minimize audio disruption over distances and obstacles.
- Does it fit well? If you are going to need it for rigorous exercises too, does it easily fall off?
- And lastly since you’re reading this post, is it budget friendly?
1. Best magnetic earbuds : TaoTronics TT-BH07 magnetic earbuds – $26
TaoTronics TT-BH07 are simple, super light and yet feature packed earbuds. They feature silicone hooks that keep them from easily falling off. If you feel the hooks are invasive, you can always remove them and use just the tips.
When not in use, the earbuds have magnets to keep them around your necks. The magnets sits behind the nicely finish caps on each earbud.
It has a battery life of about 5 hours (same as the $159 AirPods) which isn’t impressive but should be enough for the average user and acceptable at this price point.
Bluetooth 5.0 connection reliable and with minimal distortion. The signal doesn’t cut out when your phone is in your pocket and it isn’t prone to blips when you move your head too quickly – a real problem in some wireless headphones.
The sound quality isn’t mind blowing, but it gets the job done. The bass is average and the highs are crude. So if you’re into bass heavy music, this aren’t for you.
The TaoTronics TT-BH07 cuts corners when it comes to its remote. It feels a little cheap. It also alters how the cable would normally fall while in use, giving it an awkward feel.
The counter argument here is that the earbuds are so cheap that it really doesn’t matter the bottle necks it has. If you are able to look beyond the average battery life and lack of bass, it’s a good purchase.
- Magnetic earbuds
- very affordable
- Mediocre battery life
- Lack of bass
