Sony's WF-1000XM4 earbuds might be some of the best you can buy today, but they don't come cheap. At $279, it can be hard to justify that cost — no matter how great the ANC is. If you're looking for a similar design with a much smaller price tag, Sony's upcoming WF-C500 might be just the set for you.
While you can pick up a budget pair of wireless earbuds at any convenience store these days, dropping a decent amount of cash on a premium set is still your best bet for a great experience. Samsung, Amazon, and Google all offer their respective takes on headphones, but if you're looking for a third-party alternative, Jabra's one of the best around. Today only, you can take 40% off nearly everything sitewide, making it a perfect time to pick up some new earbuds.
Last year's OnePlus Buds Z came in at a super low price — fifty bucks! — and offered decent sound quality and a comfortable fit. As you'd probably expect with a price so low, they didn't include any advanced features. OnePlus added ANC and wireless charging to its premium Buds Pro, but at a pretty massive markup over the original pair. If you've had your eye out for some new affordable earbuds, the company's next pair might be a perfect match between price and performance.
Wireless earbuds are a dime a dozen these days, but only a handful can truly be considered the best of the best. Sony's XM4s manage to earn their place among the greats with class-leading audio quality, top-tier foam tips, and ANC so good, you'll think you're wearing over-the-ear headphones. Unfortunately, they don't come cheap, but if you don't mind buying refurbished earbuds, you can score the XM4s today for under $200.
There will always be an opportunity for a soundtrack whether it's a sultry evening in the woods or on a rumbly, jumbly bus. It just so happens that JBL is announcing a horde of headphones and a posse of portable speakers today, so you'll soon have new purchase options to think over.
Although it's not as flashy a brand as Google or Apple, Jabra has quietly been making some of the best wireless earbuds you can buy today. Over the last few years, the Elite 65t, 75t, and 85t sets have proven to be excellent daily drivers, all without being tied to a single operating system. Jabra announced three new pairs of earbuds today to choose from, with prices starting as low as just $79.
You don't need to break the bank for a pair of true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation. Hell, you probably won't even need a whole Benjamin. Aukey's Beyond ANC Hybrid earbuds, otherwise known as the EP-N5, only cost $59 most days and can be found for way less sometimes. But can your ears live with them? Check out our appended update below.
Everyone makes wireless earbuds these days. It's not just phone makers and startups, either — you could pick a brand name out of a hat, and, chances are, there's a pair of buds listed on its website right now. This sort of saturation does end up benefitting shoppers, of course. With so many options to pick between, you can usually score some for insanely low prices. Over at Lenovo's web store, you can grab a pair of earbuds for as low as $15 right now.
With every device maker and startup under the sun offering unique takes on wireless earbuds these days, it's safe to say the market is fully saturated. If your current buds are on their last legs — or you're finally looking to make the switch from wired headphones — you're in luck.
