JLab Go Air Pop: one-minute review

Let’s cut to the chase of what’s thrilling about the JLab Go Air Pop: since February of this year it has been possible to buy a pair of known-brand true wireless earbuds for $20 / $20, a fee that even three years ago was unimaginable. And, they’re not from someone down a dark back alley, and they’re not knock-off AirPods.

The known brand is JLab, and its raison d’etre is providing durable listening gear at rock-bottom prices; staples on our list of the best budget wireless earbuds guide, with the outgoing JLab Go Air as a prime example. They’re also our top budget pick in our best wireless earbuds guide.

Regular readers will know that TechRadar penned initial thoughts about the remarkably affordable new JLab Go Air Pop soon after their release, but – even though this is a very wallet-friendly product – we want you to know about them in a fully-fledged review. Isn’t your curiosity piqued? Can earbuds this budget-conscious actually do a job?

We’ve all been burned by buying cheap – buy cheap, buy twice, right? Not here. If you’re thinking that one bud would cease to pair after a week, or the case lid would snap off within a day, or a glancing blow from a wet jacket sleeve would kill them, or a speck of dust would put paid to the case registering anything inside it worth charging… well, you’re wrong. 

What you need to know is that JLab Go Air Pop (try to see past the name, in the same way we’re able to see past Sony’s collection of capital letters, dashes and numbers to find a class-leading product) are actually pretty good generally – and emphatically unbeatable for this money, although it’s important to note that there’s little out there to challenge them at the level. If this is where your budget maxes out for non-essentials such as true wireless earbuds, you will find a reliable product here.

These earbuds belie their lowly price-point. They are not junk. They sound far better than is reasonable. And wouldn’t life be better if more of us could afford portable wireless music, rather than no music at all?

JLab Go Air Pop: price and release date

  • $20 / £20 / AU$49.95
  • Released: February 2022

At $20, £20 or five cents under $50 in Australia, saying JLab’s latest true wireless earbuds are aggressively priced is quite the understatement. Remember, JLab is a known audio brand, founded in 2005 and respected among the audio press. 

Competition and profit margins at JLab’s ultra-affordable end of the market are brutal. The race to shrink reliable connectivity, decent stamina and on-device controls into ever-more amenable price-points, while still somehow turning a profit, never ends. 

The truth is that JLab has fashioned a unique pair of new earbuds that do this for $20 (£20) and I’m still not sure how. Did someone on JLab’s payroll sell their soul to the devil in a Faustian, Robert Johnson-style pact? Hope not. But one can’t be sure…

JLab Go Air Pop: features

  • Bluetooth 5.1 and wearer-detection
  • Three effective EQ profiles
  • On-ear volume control 

First off, these Bluetooth 5.1 earbuds connected to my phone at the first time of asking, and as basic a statement as it may seem, the fact that a product powers up simply, shows up in the Bluetooth menu of my phone and pairs – without the 15 minutes of head scratching, a third read of the Quick Start Guide and a full factory reset – already puts them streets ahead of certain buds we’ve tested at up to 10 times the price.

The earbuds are also sweat-resistant but even more importantly, you’re getting eight hours from the earbuds and a whopping 32 hours from the entire proposition when you include the case – and having spent a week with them, I can confirm that the claim is genuine.

Upon placing the buds back into your ears following charging, they pair instantly to their last-known device too, calmly announcing “Bluetooth connected, battery full”. These are small and incremental checks in favor of the JLabs, but they do add up. Functioning without issue might seem the bare minimum, but JLab is beating competition much higher up the food chain just by passing these rudimentary tests. 

Oh, and on-device volume control? Big check. I have knocked several premium pairs of earbuds for not offering what is such a natural thing to want from your headphones (AirPods Pro, I’m looking at you), but here, a simple tap of either earpiece sends the volume up (right) or down (left) a notch. It’s almost too easy. Double tap the left one for Siri or Google, double tap the right to play or pause your music. Hold your finger on either earpiece for over a second and it’ll skip forward or back a track. Cake.

There’s a mic in each earbud for call-handling, and don’t for a second think that no app means no EQ profiles – triple tap either earpiece and you’ll hear the soothing voice say “balanced’, “bass boost” or “JLab signature”. Across the course of my time with these little units, they never misunderstand my index finger’s morse code once, either.

  • Features score: 5/5

JLab Go Air Pop review: sound quality

  • Good bass weight and textured vocals
  • Treble crackles at higher volumes

These earbuds are very capable of playing music and really, it is churlish to expect too much more. If you were hoping JLab just nailed sonic brilliance for the princely sum of $20, you will have to think again – you’re getting SBC vanilla Bluetooth delivered at rock-bottom prices, not aptX HD, LDAC or hifalutin higher-res codecs. 

The name hardly screams audio excellence anyway – ‘air’ and ‘pop’ are not words we’d recommend using in the same sentence as 6mm drivers and Bluetooth connectivity – but remember, Sony once released a limited-edition ‘silent white’ colourway for the WH-1000XM4 and silence doesn’t suggest great-sounding cans either. Which firm had the bigger budget to perhaps run that name by a focus group? Correct. 

Any meaningful sound comparison between these $20 in-ears and class-leading products from the likes of Sony, Apple or Sennheiser is more than a little unfair – and there are no current class-leaders at $20 because there simply isn’t much serious competition at that price. 

What you should know is that JLab’s solution beats anything in its price range for sound, hands down. It can even stand toe to toe with the more expensive Sony WF-C500 – which it actually beats for battery life and design, if not audio quality. 

Okay, the treble needs refinement and dynamically they’re a little flat (stream Tinie Tempah’s Frisky and the foreboding intro is ever-present, rather than building and brooding), but I maintain that JLab’s Go Air Pop are a pleasant listen overall, especially for this money. Vocals are relatively well handled through the mids, and the bass weight is sensibly handled, although I admit that the timing here lacks a modicum of cohesion.  

Stream Hootie & the Blowfish’s Let Her Cry and the different guitars present themselves to each ear in a relatively expansive, open soundstage too. Listen to Prince’s Kiss and while you’ll get all of the bass funk in the intro, the artist’s inimitable vocal comes off a little harsh. Sonically, it is difficult to rave about the sound quality, chiefly because of this treble, which does distort even in relatively easy passages, but that’s not really the point here. 

The point is budget-conscious, solid sound. And you get that here – for up to 32 hours. 

  • Sound quality score: 3.5/5

It’s hard to believe the earbuds, case, charger, extra eartips and quick-start guide are all in here. But they are you know… (Image credit: TechRadar)

  • Available in five glorious colorways
  • Just 3.7g per earbud 
  • Odd tadpole-like charging cable

Refreshingly, JLab Go Air Pop arrive in a plastic-free, 100% recycled paper box roughly the size of a deck of cards. It’s hard to imagine a set of headphones, their charging case, a quick-start guide and extra gel cushion tips can actually fit inside it, honestly, but they’re certainly there – and they’re worth shouting about. 

Let’s start with the teardrop-shaped ergonomic earbuds. The marketing spiel is that they’re 15 per cent smaller than JLabs’ previous offerings. The point is, they weigh just 3.7g per earpiece (which is over a gram lighter than the bijou Sony LinkBuds S, which come in at 4.8g per bud) and will suit practically all human ears. When it comes to true wireless earbuds, small is beautiful and JLab’s Go Air Pop truly are beautifully small. 

You get three sets of eartips in the same color as everything else for a sleek aesthetic (our sample is turquoise) and the case is easily as small and light as a box of dental floss, despite the fact that its USB charging plug and short cable snaps out from a recess in the base. 

This diddy case is able to stand on its base (why can’t more brands do this?) so that you can flip open the magnetised lid with one hand to access the headphones. I spent a week slinging this case into my bag, near my keys. There are no metallic embellishments to be scratched off on the design and no discernible weak points in the hinge. This thing wants to survive a commute unscathed. 

Okay, the strange little charging cable is physically attached to the JLab Go Air Pop’s case (can it still be called a wireless charger if there’s always a wire?) and when charging it does look embryonic or juvenile compared to more premium cases, as tadpole is to fully-grown frog perhaps. That said, it does charge the earbuds and means you’ll never have to search in the semi-darkness for your USB-C charger – or get caught short because you forgot to pack one. 

  • Design score: 4.5/5

JLab Go Air Pop’s case really is as light as a box of dental floss – so much so, we often had to check our pocket to make sure it was still there. (Image credit: TechRadar)

JLab Go Air Pop review: value

  • Reliable battery, connectivity and supreme comfort for $20
  • Easily betters anything else at this price for sound and features
  • No app

Did we mention that these earbuds are just $20? All things considered, the JLab Go Air Pop represent exceptionally good value, and, despite the lack of a companion app, you get an impressive set of features all handled by the reliable on-ear controls.  

In terms of build, battery life and feature set, JLab is irrefutably top of the class for value – but remember, it is a very small class. 

These earbuds are not the flaky-breaky kit one might expect for $20, and if it’s a question of no music on the commute or JLab’s Go Air Pop earbuds, I’ll bite your hand off for these every day of the week. 

  • Value score: 5/5

JLab Go Air Pop review: should I buy it?

JLab Go Air Pop
Attributes Notes Rating
Features No product with as robust a battery life and feature set exists at this level. 5/5
Sound quality Although it surpasses anything at the price, there are issues with the treble. 3.5/5
Design Excellent, incredibly light earbuds, just overlook the tadpole-tail charger. 4.5/5
Value An excellent buy for the money, as long as the lack of app support isn’t a deal-breaker. 5/5

Buy it if…

Your budget maxes out at $20 / £20 / AU$50 and you want true wireless
The JLab Go Air Pop is an incredibly affordable proposition and boasts a spec sheet no other solution to date has managed at this level. If this is you, that should be enough. 

You have smaller ears
At 3.7g per bud, the JLab Go Air Pop’s earbuds are incredibly small and likeable. In fact, the whole thing feels so light in our pocket, we often have to check it’s still there…

You prioritize a long battery life
32 hours of playtime, for $20. Let that sink in, while remembering that AirPods Pro will only give you a maximum of 24 hours of listening time

Don’t buy it if…

You really want app support
Although Go Air Pop do amazing things without a companion app (on-ear volume control, EQ profiles, access to voice assistants – it’s all here) if you want a visual cue of their battery life on your device, no dice.  

You want top quality sound and have a stretchier budget
If sound quality is top of your list and you can spend a little more, do that. This is not an audiophile-grade product, although in many ways it’s still a fun listen. 

Also consider…

Think the Go Air Pop might not be the true wireless earbuds for you? That’s cool, here are three alternatives that could offer just the design, feature-set and sound quality you’re looking for. 

Lypertek PurePlay Z3 2.0
Lypertek continues to punch above its weight and outside of its pricing bracket with the PurePlay Z3 2.0 true wireless earbuds, a stellar-sounding package with top-notch battery life. 

Sony WF-C500
They’re more than double the price of the JLabs, but Sony’s WF-C500 are still super affordable. As you might expect from a heavy-hitter such as Sony, this has led to certain compromises – but the company has kept them to a minimum, and delivered a very perky sound from very comfortable earbuds.  

Earfun Air Pro
Need a noise-cancelling option? EarFun Air Pro true wireless earbuds look good, sound great, and offer a generally strong performance at an attractive price. They fall down when it comes to comfort and general bulk and the touch controls are overly complex, but they’re still an accomplished effort overall.

Sony WF-C700N: Two-minute review

Sony’s WF-C700N earbuds are a joy to wear. But how often have you loved the design and fit of a set of earbuds only to be let down when you actually get them doing their job – ie. playing your music? 

That won’t happen here. In fact, with the WF-C700N, Sony just ripped my notions on what is achievable at this level to smithereens. Some of the best noise-cancelling earbuds of the year, then? Indeed. Can they be bettered by rivals? Yes, but not for this money. You’ll have to set your sights much farther up the food chain if you want to beat this suite of features and sound quality. 

Honestly, I cannot believe Sony has priced them so low. Suffice to say, I like them a lot. You do need to look past Sony’s odd naming game (the N addition to the moniker does indeed stand for Noise cancellation; these ‘buds mark Sony’s new entry level for ANC earbuds) but once that’s done you’ll find a truly likeable, solid set of earbuds that are nothing short of fantastic for the money.  

Add to this the fact that their talents go above and beyond their Adaptive ANC and into Sony’s 360 Reality Audio, guided by the excellent Sony Headphones Connect app, and you get an inkling of what I’m about to go to great lengths to celebrate. 

Multi-point connectivity and adaptive sound control are here (you can select ‘Walking’, ‘Waiting’, ‘Travelling’ or ‘Registered places’ in the app, which is frankly incredible at this level) and you get Sony’s standard DSEE audio ‘upscaling’ engine, so Spotify tracks are going to sound a lot better. Look, it’s the kind of tech people like me are more au fait with when it comes to the excellent – but quite a bit more expensive – Sony WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds and Sony WH-1000XM5 over-ears. And those are some of the best wireless headphones on the planet right now… whereas the WF-C700N are in what I like to call the budget-to-mid sector. 

Did I mention that the build quality and battery life are bang-on too? There’s less protrusion than with Sony’s more affordable buds (Sony WF-C500, all eyes on you), because they’re 37% lighter and 38% smaller than the top-tier WF-1000XM4.  

The long and short of it is this: the eagerly-awaited Sony WF-1000XM5 earbuds had better be good when they land in my lap (even if they are rumored to be a lot smaller), because as far as I’m concerned, the WF-C700N is where the smart money goes… 

Sony is showing exceptional talent in distilling its audio know-how down into ever diminutive earpieces.  (Image credit: Future)

Sony WF-C700N review: Price & release date

  • Released on April 1, 2023
  • Priced $119 / £99 / AU$199 

If the prices above made you double-take, well done you. Yes, Sony has challenged in this territory before, (see the sporty IP55-rated Sony WF-SP800N which feature a degree of noise-cancellation, or the budget friendly Sony WF-C500, if you can live without ANC) but never with quite this level of skill and accomplishment.

As with other options in Sony’s more affordable oeuvre, these cheaper earbuds come in a few whimsical colorways: lavender and sage green (which is more like pistachio ice cream) as well as the more traditional black or white finishes.  

At this level, the closest competition is likely the Panasonic RZ-S500W earbuds, or even the cheaper (but devoid of ANC or immersive audio) Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 Plus, but both options involve compromises, including a bulkier size and slightly bassier presentation in the Panasonic product (although perhaps you love that), and a more basic app in the Cambridge Audio option in addition to lacking noise cancellation. 

Yes, the box is plasticky. But it’s oh-so pocketable…  (Image credit: Future)

Sony WF-C700N review: Features

  • Excellent immersive 360 Reality Audio
  • ANC profiles and optimization add value
  • No auto-off feature 

For this level, I think it would be churlish to ask any more from your earbuds. Call-handling? A breeze – but not literally; Sony has worked hard on neutralizing wind-interference (there’s a new mesh structure surrounding the microphone) and the fact that the units are much more flush with your ear does promote clearer calls.  

But where these ‘buds come alive for me, is when I get to playing Tidal tracks, because this opens the door to Sony 360 Reality Audio – aka 24 object-based channels arranged in a 360-degree soundstage, which Sony launched back in 2019. You’ll have to take photos of your ear, which is a little tricky at first, then link your Tidal account. But it is emphatically worth it. I’ll wax lyrical on the sound quality later, but as features at this level go, you’re looking at game-changing immersive sound for this money.

As noted, Sony’s excellent Headphones Connect app takes the wheel here. It’s very good. Why? Adaptive Sound Control, optimized according to what you’re doing, that’s why – yes, these headphones learn how you use them and try to help. Don’t like that it deploys ANC when it knows you’re ‘Staying’? That’s fine, tap the cog in the app’s Headphone Settings and you can deploy Ambient sound or turn all noise profiles off – and until you change it, that’ll happen whenever you’re sitting at your desk.  

When Ambient is deployed, you can select from 1-20 on a slider (I keep mine at around 12 when ‘Walking’ to my train and 20 when ‘Running’) and these work very well indeed. When ANC is on, at my desk, all but the loudest noises are softened, leaving me immersed in my playlists. It’s a feat and no mistake. 

Perks abound. You can even deploy safe listening levels or collect badges pertaining to how often you’ve listened, and in which scenarios!

Any omissions worth mentioning? No auto-off when you remove them, but at this price, I’m prepared to follow Elsa’s advice in Frozen and let it go.

  • Features score: 4.5/5

Aw, aren’t they just lovely?  (Image credit: Future)

Sony WF-C700N review: Sound quality

  • Tidal tracks come alive with surround-sound and verve
  • Even Spotify tracks are levelled up 
  • A truly exuberant, agile and fun listen

Those who have read the entirety of this review won’t be shocked to learn that this particular section, like those before it, is extremely positive. But if you’ve skipped straight to here (naughty!), well, it’s good news. 

Those with a Tidal account are in for a real treat, but even when I stream lossy Spotify tracks or much better Apple Music streams, the WF-C700N put on a resoundingly agile, meaty, enthusiastic performance. 

When streaming The Bangles’ Eternal Flame, backing vocals arrive in each ear but never to the detriment of Susanna Hoffs’ occasionally pensive, understated vocal. I feel like we get an extra ounce of detail and texture through her high belt, too, compared to the competition. Stream XTC’s Making Plans for Nigel on Tidal and guitar riffs and whooping vocals attack each ear in one of the most expansive, three-dimensional and fun soundstages I’ve heard from a set of earbuds – and that’s not a statement I make lightly. 

For dynamic build, the WF-C700N also shine, with Fontaines D.C.’s I Don’t Belong starting out brooding and just slightly further away than the band seems as the track builds to its conclusion.

Want a test of what the Sony WF-C700N can really do for immersive detail? Stream the first 30 seconds Prince’s When Doves Cry on Tidal. Listen to how those “yeah”s skulk over from your left ear, around the back of your head and finish in your right. It doesn’t feel gimmicky (the funk-heavy bass and guitar licks are masterfully held in check in what is an admirably cohesive mix), but there’s so much space for that vocal to shine… 

  • Sound quality score: 5/5

Sony WF-C700N review: Design

  • Beautifully compact, ergonomic earpieces
  • Push-button works very well
  • No on-ear volume control 

These are some of the most easy to wear, comfortable earbuds I’ve ever had the pleasure of wearing, a fact which shouldn’t be a huge surprise given the Sony LinkBuds S are another firm favorite for my smaller ears. While a little fuller over the body, they fit without having to stretch my ear or screw them in, in any way. And thanks to the new material (which Sony says “holds on to the inner cup of your ear”) they stay put for hours on end. 

Yes, the case is plastic and feels a shade off high-end, but it’s pocketable, functional and shuts with a reassuring snap. The mesh over the mic on each earbud is a stroke of genius because as well as enhancing call-quality and ANC, it’s tactile, thus helping my finger navigate to the little raised lip of the multi-function button with ease. 

Said button is a great solution. Depress it, and you know you’ve done something (unlike so many touch-based solutions) and I find myself neglecting my phone to answer calls, scroll through ANC profiles (on the left earbuds) and pause my music (on the right, but this can be customized in the app). 

My only gripe here is the lack of on-ear volume control, although Sony says that following a firmware update, it will be possible, with a four-time press “or more” of either earbud. On public transport, it would be lovely not to have to dig my (relatively expensive) source device out from its special safe place in my bag, is all I’m saying.

  • Design score: 4/5

Sony WF-C700N review: Value

  • As feature-packed as any earbuds has any business being for the money
  • A no-brainer for Tidal members
  • Unbeatable for comfort and sound-quality at the level

I’ll speak plain: for features, design and most-importantly sound quality, these cannot be bettered for the money. In fact, you’d have to double your outlay to do so.

Okay, if you’re prepared to spend over three times the money, there’s more detail and sonic insight (through the higher frequencies) to be gleaned from the Bowers & Wilkins Pi7 S2, but those earbuds don’t have the battery life or ANC talent of these inexpensive Sony earbuds.

Prior to now, my shout for this money would be the Panasonic RZ-S500W, but in my humble opinion, the Sony WF-C700N now edge those for sound. It’s a close-run race, but the bass feels just that bit tighter, snappier and less prone to overstatement in the Sony product.

Buy them if…

You have smaller ears
These earbuds are some of the most secure and comfortable I’ve worn – think Sony LinkBuds S, but that little bit more secure .

You have a Tidal Account
Link the streaming service in the Sony Headphones Connect app (after taking photos of your ears, all guided by the app) and you unlock Sony’s proprietary 360 Reality Audio. And that, friend, is a very good thing… 

You want the best sound-per-pound value on the market
There it is: you get effective ANC alongside the most exciting and fun audio at this level.

Don’t buy them if…

You prioritize on-ear volume control
No dice here, sadly – although Sony says that following a firmware update, it will be possible, by pressing either earbuds four times or more.

Your ears are on the large side
There’s every chance these lovely little units might even be too small for you… 

You want the track to turn off when you remove them
This isn’t a feature of the WF-C700N. Small gripe for some, potential game-changer for others.

Panasonic RZ-S500W
A similar proposition and arguably a better one if you celebrate a bass-hungry listen. But the fit isn’t as secure as the Sony WF-C700N and if it’s immersive, 360 Reality Audio you crave, you won’t find it here. Here’s our in-depth Panasonic RZ-S500W review.

How I tested the Sony WF-C700N

(Image credit: Future)

  • Tested for two weeks, listened against the Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 Plus, Bowers & Wilkins Pi7 S2 and even the Audeze Euclid
  • Used at work (in the office; walking through London; on a train) and at home
  • Listened to Tidal Masters, Apple Music Lossless tracks and Spotify on an iPhone XR, a Samsung Galaxy S22 and a MacBook Pro

As always when testing earbuds or headphones, the Sony WF-C700N became my musical companions for two weeks – after a thorough 48-hour run-in period.  

They accompanied me to work on weekdays (walking brusquely to the station; boarding a train and the London Underground; at the office) and throughout a long weekend on the UK coastline – a great way to test any wind-interference from mics during calls.

To better test the comfort levels (and battery life claims) of the Sony WF-C700N, I wore them throughout the working day too – and they certainly did not disappoint. 

To check the audio quality across the frequencies, I listened to various playlists (spanning everything from acid jazz to thrash metal) on Apple Music and Tidal, but also to podcasts and albums on Spotify – and YouTube tutorials (mostly about crochet stitches, since you ask) from my MacBook Pro. 

I’ve been testing audio products for five years now. As a dancer, aerialist and musical theater performer in another life, sound quality, fit and the user experience have always taken priority for me personally – but having heard how wonderful ANC can be when done well, I know what to look for.

🧭 Wireless Headphones – Other related ratings:

⚖️ What are the best budget wireless headphones to choose:

  1. Overall sound quality is 80% important . Many inexpensive wireless headphones have an overabundance of bass and a lack of treble. Below in the TOP, this is indicated. And pay attention to the frequency response graphs.
  2. Codecs . Not all budget wireless headphones under $100 support the aptX or LDAC line of codecs, but AAC is common. The difference between the codecs is audible, although not always. Learn more about all current codecs.
  3. Control . Someone is more comfortable touch, someone – push-button. In modern models, a good implementation of touch control is increasingly common: fewer false positives and cunning gestures. But someone is closer to good inexpensive wireless headphones with buttons.
  4. Autonomy . In 2023, 20 hours+ on a single charge is the minimum for full-size models. Plugs have not yet reached such heights due to the compact design. Bluetooth in-ear and vacuum headphones (with a wire between the cases) work on average for about 10 hours, which is a comfortable indicator. Bluetooth headphones TWS – 5h+ and 20+ from the case.
  5. Comfort . 2 hours without discomfort is the minimum for full-size models. The best inexpensive wireless earbuds and earbuds should adhere to the same standards. Overhead bluetooth headphones in any case put pressure on the ears, if you can spend more than an hour in them without discomfort – this is already a comfortable model.
  6. Pay attention to budget wireless headphones from famous brands . In the sub-$100 segment, there are many potentially interesting options from unknown Chinese manufacturers. There is a good chance that by buying such cheap wireless headphones for your phone, you go through a couple of months with them, after which they stop working. It is better to overpay a little, but buy a reliable model. Or at least guaranteed. Which undergo normal testing before leaving “in circulation”. In this rating, only proven budget models, after 10 days testing + review .
  7. Connector . Micro USB is a thing of the past. The future with Type C has already arrived 6 years ago. This is a universal connector, with which faster charging is possible and data transfer throughput is many times greater. But, on the other hand, it is impossible to determine which wireless headphones are better only by the connector. It happens that excellent models still slip in 2023, then with Micro USB.
  8. Durability . For budget wireless headphones, materials are especially important. Often such models are made of fragile plastic, but such options were not included in our top wireless headphones. 😉 Do not focus on metal elements. Sometimes strong plastic lasts 10 years, and headphones with metal body elements break in the second year.
  9. Price . Under $100 there are interesting and cheap wireless headphones. It is believed that budget wireless headphones are rubbish in any case, they sound bad, flimsy and do not last long. In recent years, good bluetooth headphones have become cheaper and the range up to $ 100 already includes many good models, which are presented below.
  10. Reviews will help you choose good inexpensive wireless headphones. Given the low-cost segment under $100, reviews play a big role. You can find potential problems in them, which, theoretically, are more in budget wireless headphones than in expensive ones. In this rating, all the nuances from the reviews are taken into account, but the opinion is taken as the basis after a thorough 10-day testing of each model.
