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.

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.
PROSCONS
  • 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. At the same time, they are not expensive and for those who are looking for headphones for sports, they will fit well, for the rest I recommend a closer look at the EP-B80.
PROSCONS
  • 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.

Marshall Minor II Wireless Headphones: A Complete Review
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 for me was the lack of passive noise isolation, which makes the headphones unsuitable for normal 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, then you should pay attention to Marshall Minor II.
PROSCONS
  • 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

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 simply 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, 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)

Pioneer SE-C8TW Truly Wireless in-Ear Headphones: A Complete Review
The lowest price for headphones is $54.06. In my opinion, a little expensive. Of course, Pioneer is not an unknown Chinese manufacturer, but a serious game-changer, in which sound quality is good, however, it is difficult to achieve the highest sound class in True Wireless headset compared to wired solutions. The assembly plays on hand, a wonderful case with USB Type-C, decent work as a headset, and this is important. But “only” 9 hours of operation (when competitors offer to provide up to 20 hours), Bluetooth 4.2 (many “Chinese” have version 5 already) and not the most interesting sound make the purchase doubtful. I can’t call the headphones bad. But they are clearly overrated. And I sincerely hope that Pioneer fixes it.

PROS

CONS

  • Premium Design
  • Good Bass
  • Poor Battery
  • Average Sound
  • Signal Loss due to poor Bluetooth

JBL Tune 120TWS Truly Wireless in-Ear Earbuds (Black)- A Complete Review
JBL Tune 120TWS Verdict is a strong and extremely successful model in the lower price segment of fully wireless headphones. If you don’t need certain additional functions (sweat protection, sensors for automatic start/pause, etc.) and you are not ready to spend a large amount of completely wireless headphones, then this is a great choice. There are no special features here, only Sound, for the money - the sound is excellent.

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.
