We all love our smartphones for many, many reasons. Portability and convenience is absolutely at the top of the list and with music going almost purely digital, that particular bit of media is a large focus for many smartphones on the market. After all, we all love our music and it sounding good is key because when it doesn’t, it’s often the worse thing ever.
With that said, we here at mobiletweaks.net have scoured reviews and first-hand usage to bring together a list of the best earbuds on the market that don’t put a huge dent in your wallet. Everything on this list will come in under $50 because as nice as Beats or Bose headphones are, sometimes it’s not plausible to spend that amount of money on a set of headphones. All our entries can be found at their cheapest prices on Amazon, which helps for ordering convenience.
With high ratings almost everywhere they’re sold and coming in on Amazon for under ten dollars, these are likely the best bargain you’ll find for a set of earbuds that sound as good as they do. With a good sound quality that sits around the same level as the popular Skullcandy TiTANS, though more than $30 less than the same headphones, you can’t really go wrong with these earbuds. However, keep in mind that you are still getting $10 headphones, though at a quality that is much higher than the asking price.
Although a new company, these earbuds are some of my favorites on this list. The wraparound style that keeps the cords coming from behind your ears seem to add a bit of stability to the set and the large ranges of the buds themselves carry a great mix of sound. And for just under $20 dollars, these are some of the best, and my favorites, on this list.
Few lists of good, cheap earbuds would be complete without a nod to Skullcandy. While they do offer a range of headphones that extends into what most would easily consider expensive, often their baseline headphones are some of the best. These are some of the toughest and best sounding they have, and I’ve been using Skullcandy for years. There are many, many accounts of these making it through the wash and come out the other side working perfectly. Pair this with a popular design and you have a set of earbuds that will serve you well.
Although the most expensive earbuds on this list at just over $30, arguably they have the best sound and durability you will find. The durable metal casing houses a powerful driver that delivers some of the richest and deepest basses you’ll find in any set of earbuds short of the several hundred dollar Bose and Beats sets. Normally listed at just under $90, Amazon has them discounted by 65% at the moment, meaning a good deal is absolutely a great deal right now.
