* Bluetooth headphones don’t have to be expensive
* No more tangled cords in your pocket or bag
* Ideal for traveling, doing chores or exercising
Wireless headphones are here to stay. They’ve proven that cord-free Bluetooth audio makes a huge difference in every situation from binge watching Netflix at home to traveling and working out. You can stuff them in your pocket or bag without any tangling, run without the tugging of regular headphone cords, and do chores, drive, or work without holding your phone. Still, some people are understandably hesitant to ditch their trusty cans and invest in premium wireless headphones, or can’t afford the higher prices. If you just want to try them out for cheap, or don’t want to spring for the high-end stuff, consider these seven pairs under $50.
1. Dostyle Bluetooth Headphones
These simple Bluetooth headphones have a similar design and fit to regular Apple Earpods, but feature high quality Bluetooth APTX audio. They’re also sweatproof for tough workouts, have a mic for taking calls and cost just $23.
2. GRDE Bluetooth Headphones
Another great budget option is these GDRE bluetooth headphones, with a $28 price tag. They have an ergonomic design, and they feature helpful magnets that keep the buds together around your neck when you’re not using them.
3. AYL Bluetooth Headphones
AYL’s bluetooth headphones are another great pick for exercising. They have great audio quality, handy controls to change the volume, and a low-key microphone for calls.
4. Soundwhiz Wireless Headphones

7. LEZII True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds
Another true wireless option is this set of LEZII earbuds. They have a surprisingly sleek design for less than $40, and multi-pairing capabilities that allow different devices on each earbud (i.e. one connected to your laptop and one connected to your phone at work).
