Aukey's B80 Bluetooth earbuds feature USB-C charging and aptX, and they're just $51 ($29 off) right now

Aukey manages to cram a lot of features into its Bluetooth earbuds relative to their prices. The company's B80 earbuds — big brother to the impressive B60 — pack Bluetooth 5.0, aptX support, and USB-C charging. Those features are appealing at the headset's usual $80, and the current sale price of $51 makes the buds a steal.

Aukey B60 Bluetooth earbuds review: USB-C charging and best-in-class comfort on the cheap

It's a bummer, but wireless audio gadget manufacturers seem reluctant to adopt the USB-C charging port found on most new phones, tablets, and even laptops. Otherwise exciting earbuds like the Soundcore Liberty Air and Jaybird Tarah Pro are still shipping with increasingly outdated microUSB ports — or worse, proprietary charging solutions. So it's great to see that Aukey's affordable B60 buds — significantly cheaper than both former sets — feature the one port to rule them all, especially since so many other things about them are so darn good.

Jaybird Tarah Pro review: Jaybird's best wireless earbuds yet

Jaybird has had a busy few months. Following September's release of both the flagship X4 and budget Tarah, the company released last month the Tarah Pro, a second high-end headset that evidently shares enough in common with Jaybird's entry-level offering to share its name.

Tarah, it seems, is Jaybird's name for these devices' particular form factor, rather than an indicator of budget-friendliness. While the Pro take a number of design cues from the vanilla Tarah, they certainly don't take inspiration from their price: at $160, the Tarah Pro are Jaybird's most expensive earbuds. They're also the company's best.

Rowkin Ascent Charge+ review: Affordable but frustrating truly wireless earbuds

If you peruse our Winter 2018 Most Wanted audio guide (and you should — good stuff in there), you'll notice an unfortunate trend. With few exceptions, manufacturers of wireless audio gear seem timid about adopting USB Type-C charging. So I was excited to get my hands on the Rowkin Ascent Charge: they're fully wireless earbuds whose case is decked out with not only the increasingly standard USB-C, but also Qi wireless charging. And after using the buds for a couple of weeks, I like them a lot, but a few grating flaws are stopping me from loving them.

Funcl W1 and AI hands-on: Truly wireless earbuds have never been this cheap

Last week a brand we'd never heard of called Funcl announced an Indiegogo campaign for two pairs of so-called "truly" wireless Bluetooth headphones, which just went live today. I know, most of these crowdfunded projects are junk, but one particular twist caught our eye: The cheaper set costs a mere $19. Crowdfunding crap be damned, that was worth a look, and I've spent the last week using them, as well as the more expensive $54 Funcl AI.

Plantronics BackBeat Fit 3100, 2100, and 350 quick review: Sports earbuds done right

I've owned and reviewed plenty of Bluetooth headsets over the years, but the brand I keep coming back to again and again is Plantronics. The company balances quality, sound, and price very well and has produced some of my favorite and most-used earbuds. For years, you couldn't see me anywhere without the red BackBeat Go 2 draped around my neck as I listened to podcasts while walking, doing chores, shopping, and more. But it was the BackBeat Fit that stole my heart. It was the perfect sports headphones and after four years of 2-3 weekly runs and gym sessions, it still looks like I bought it yesterday.
