Best Cheap Wireless Headphones

Best Cheap Wireless Headphones

In terms of sound and overall configuration, Sony WH-CH700N are by far the cheapest and most valuable wireless headphones we've reviewed.

I got the DT-770 Pro as a support for mixing, because unfortunately I do not currently have the opportunity to edit my room acoustically for my studio monitors. So now I use the speakers for the regular work, while I use the headphones for the delicate places where I have to work very accurately. To anticipate it: For this purpose, the headphones work great for me!

It was particularly important to me that the entire spectrum is reproduced as unadulterated as possible so that I can make the most accurate decisions, especially in the bass range. The headphones deliver this without any problems.

We've compiled a List of Best Noise-Cancelling Headphones in 2020

Whether the advertised transmission range of 5 – 35000 Hz is maintained, I can not say, I don’t think any human could hear past 20000 Hz; however, all frequencies that are heard for me are played back and it goes damn deep!

​Audeze, one of the most prestigious brands of high-end hi-fi headphones, dived in March 2018 into the gaming industry with a new top-tier gaming headset for high-caliber players. The event was of enormous surprise and truly intriguing; Not only because of the blending of an elitist brand like Audeze with the medium of gaming, but also for the expectations which had arisen by the upcoming of an alluring pair of gaming headsets and the unreal promises they’ve made.

Ergonomics

It doesn’t take long to realize the majesty of Audeze Mobius sound once donning them on your ears. As one of the best gaming headset, the audio quality is the second most intriguing aspect after the immersive soundscape generated by the planar magnetic drivers and Waves Nx technology for 3D audio immersiveness.

Not only does the 100mm planar magnetic drivers emulate the most authentic immersive cinematic experiences, they also achieve an admirable level of precision and responsiveness. The complexity of the captivating, imacculate surround sound with the dramatic and vivid sounds filled with details make it almost impossible to take them off your head. The experience is truly addictive.

Sony WH-CH700N

Top Wireless Headphone - Best Value for Little Cost

Why we like it:

The Sony WH-CH700N is a pair of over-the-ear wireless headphones priced slightly under $150, an excellent budget solution for those in need of detailed and rich sound with no wires around.

The cheap wireless headphones from Sony lack enjoy proper sound insulation, unlike other over-ear headphones in the same price range such as the Plantronics BackBeat GO 600, but not better than our best over-ear pick: Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2. The comfort is substantially increased by the light construction of 233 grams, which is a rather low value for a model of this type. Although we would’ve appreciated softer pads that envelop the earcups, the quality of comfort is relativley high and doesn’t get in your way to enjoying a good listening session.

The battery that can run for up to 35 hours with Bluetooth activated and ANC is by far the highest we’ve encountered, 1 hour less than the high-end $249 wireless headphone Jabra 85h (both measurements were done with Bluetooth and ANC on).

We deeply enjoyed this enduring autonomy of the Sony WH-CH700N, as well as the pleasurable upholstery enveloped with a layer of gray synthetic leather.

Verdict

The sound is nothing short of amazing, good and present basses, full-bodied sound and fantastic homogenity with very clean mid-range and treble. The ANC has its weaknesses and perks. The good thing is, the music is fantastic with the active noise reduction function turned on. On the bad side, it’s only in the lower frequency range where the noise is reduced the most. The sound of people talking and high-pitched sound notes are diminished very mildly.

In short, you cannot fail with these Sony. The price that is slightly above the $100 level might not define these Bluetooth headphones as „cheap”, but when you take into consideration the variety of needs the WH-CH700N can fulfill, you easily arrive to the conclusion that these are the best cheap wireless headphones around.

Panasonic RP-HTX80B

Fantastic-sounding Retro Wireless Headphones

Why we like it: This Bluetooth headphone from Panasonic which name hardly makes sense (to me) sports a retro look, and despite the many preferences most people have toward the aspect of a set of cans, are the best cheap wireless headphones that one could find with a tight budget of less than $100.

The headband displays a simple layer of synthetic leather, whereas the ear pads are made of soft cushions which ensure a good level of comfort. The stylish retro over-ear headphones not only have the benefit of looking classy, but they also enjoy good assembly quality. The RP-HTX80B’s materials ensure flexibility, comfort, good stability as well as an excellent fit on the head for an extended period of music listening.

The listener can enjoy a quality set of over-ear headphones that offer sound insulation as well as voluminous basses and overall enjoyable sound quality.

We spotted the fantastic stereophony of the RP-HTX80B during the listening sessions. In order to push the volume level high Panasonic requires a bit more power as opposed to other Bluetooth headphones. In return, the sound achieves a beautiful sound reproduction, good spatiality in the sound scene, and clarity in the musical notes, which also refines the instrumental separation of the whole sonic spectrum.

Verdict

In the end, Panasonic’s wireless RP-HTX80B is a good-sounding affordable wireless headphone that benefits from fantastic workmanship. It’s well-rendered audio quality and excellent sound reproduction is what makes the RP-HTX80B a Bluetooth headset of success.

TaoTronics TT-BH22

Best Low-cost Wireless Headphones with Noise reduction

Why we like it:

TaoTronics is a company that established itself as a source high-quality, affordable audio equipment. The TT-BH22 is an over-ear Bluetooth headphones with Active Noise Cancelling under $50 that fits the brand’s identity.

It can provide a bit of noise attenuation by using the audio data gathered by microphones that record the external noise which is then sent to a small processor inside the headphone that runs an algorithm in realtime. It’s certainly not comparable to the juggernauts like WH-1000XM3 or Bose 700, but considering that this set of wireless headphones sounds more than decent, works wirelessly, and includes a feature that improves the quality of your listening, is quite impressive for something that is sold for under $50 on Amazon.

The sound quality is slightly above average, considering the numerous other more expensive wireless headsets that fade in comparison with the TaoTronics TT-BG22 in the audio test. Clear frequencies and stereophony that displays an acceptable width, overall a beautiful sound performance coming from the very affordable wireless headset made by TaoTronics. In order to suit travelling, the headset includes a folding mechanism, a carrying case, as well as a rotation design for the earcups. Note though, that you’ll have to turn of the active noise reduction function every time you stop using the headset.

Verdict

The TT-BH22 from TaoTronics is a fantastic entry-level wirelesss active noise cancelling headphone, being able to reduce up to 15 dB of sound, whereas the average of noise reduction for Jabra Elite 85h and Bose QuietControl 30 is the same.

Aukey EP-B40

Quality Cheap Bluetooth In-ear Headphones

Why we like it:

Among a range of over-ear wireless headphones we’ve got the Aukey EP-B80, a set of water-resistant budget in-ear headphones that cost a bit less than $50.

These low-cost in-ears sound good enough for their price; the sound performance is not audiophile-worthy, but we can presumably say that is the best for any athlete that seeks an energizing sound reproduction with plenty of separation between different sound components, and rich audio experience.

The earbuds benefit from a comfortable fit thanks to the plastic wings that doesn’t let the headphones slip from your ears. Moreover, the brand includes 2 sets of wings and ear tips which people can use depending on their ear morphology, thus improving the seal and the sound quality.

Design-wise, the Aukey aims for something simple. The manufacturing quality is good, nothing exceptional considering the price, the plastic feels reliable as well as the cable that connects the remote control with the two ear pieces.

Verdict

We consider the Aukey EP-B40 to be the best wireless in-ear headphone as an entry-level headphone. The Bluetooth 4.1 isn’t the latest version as we would have liked at least 4.2 which is twice as efficient, but considering the environment of use of these in-ears, it’ll likely be enough if you only listen to music. However, the small throughput implies that you won’t be able to listen to some hi-res audio tracks while doing your sets in a gym.

In short, the EP-B40 Latitude is a great inexpensive wireless headphone for its price that is overall comfortable and reliable, but has certain limits that are more or less significant depending on your essential needs.

  • Extremely complex and versatile
  • Accurate 3D audio imaging
  • Resourceful sound spectrum with excellent bass and crystal clear sound
