year ago

These days, you really don’t need to break the bank to get high-quality earphones that many buyers are extremely satisfied with. For under $30, there are options out there that might surprise you.

Here at Bright Side, we are big fans of music, but also of bargains, so we’re bringing you budget earphones that just may blow your mind (or eardrums). Let’s get straight to it.

1. Over-ear headphones with noise isolation

Amazon’s Choice

Thanks to the padded cups, you can use these headphones for hours without that annoying ear pain that many of us have experienced before.

Happy buyer’s review: These are the best budget on-ear headphones in existence as far as I’m concerned. You can always rely on Sony for a quality product that will work well and last a long time, and when they are able to provide that at this price point, it really is fantastic. I’ve had loads of pairs of these headphones over the years (along with the fantastic budget earphones in the same range, which are amazing for the price) and look forward to owning many more. — Folk Friend — Celtic Guitar Tutorials

2. Noise-canceling wireless earbuds designed for sports

Great value

These earbuds, with deep bass and noise isolation, are particularly practical for sports. With one single charge, they can work for 8 hours, and they can go on for 48 hours with the charging case.

Happy buyer’s review: I was only after some basic wireless earphones for working out and didn’t have high expectations of quality at the price, but these are brilliant. They offer good clear sound and 3 sizes of earbuds for a really comfortable fit. They paired within seconds and already had some charge, so I could test them out straight away. I’m not a music connoisseur, but for workouts or lounging on the beach, they’re ideal. I love the charging case that stops the hooks from getting misshapen in my beach bag. I’m really happy with my purchase. — Helen

3. Wireless noise-canceling waterproof earbuds with a digital power display

Portable power bank

These slick earphones include a smart touch control that allows you to play or pause music, answer calls, adjust the volume, or switch songs.

Happy buyer’s review: This is a great set of headphones for the price. I never like spending more than $20-$30 on headphones, as I have a tendency to break them. I’ve had these for a few months now, and they’re still going strong. The battery life is great; I usually wear them for around 8 hours a day at work, 5 days a week, and the case still usually has 40%-50% juice on Friday. I would definitely recommend these. — ash

4. Noise-isolating in-ear headphones that cost almost nothing

Includes microphone

If you’re really on a tight budget, these affordable headphones might be just what you’re looking for. They are comfortable, have noise-isolating ear tips, and offer high-quality sound.

Happy buyer’s review: Full 5 stars for these little bad boys. I can’t believe the sound quality of these, and I got them for under a tenner as well! The sound is very crisp, and the bass is spot on. Give these a try before splurging on Beats or the equivalent, as these are dirt cheap and brilliant for noise cancelation, and you will be shocked by the quality of sound that comes through. — Steven Kite

5. Water-resistant wireless earphones with touch control

Great battery life

These earbuds come in 2 colors, black and white, and they come with a digital display to help you know how much battery is left.

Happy buyer’s review: These are great, I can’t afford the expensive ones, but these had great reviews, so I thought I’d give them a go. Well, all I can say is they are amazing, they have great sound quality, the battery is long-lasting, and when you store them in the case, they charge them, so you are never going to run out of juice. Also, the sound quality is pinching way above the price, with lots of volume and really good bass. It is super simple to connect, and you only have to connect them once, then they remember the pairing. I am really pleased, I would buy these again and I recommend them. — simon mills

6. Wireless over-ear headphones that can run for 3 hours on a 5-minute charge

Foldable design

If you prefer over-ear headphones, you might want to look into these. They are comfortable and super light, they come in 5 different colors, and the manufacturer offers a 12-month warranty.

Happy buyer’s review: I purchased these headphones having read the reviews. When I received this item, I was very surprised by the sound quality and how easy they were to set up with Bluetooth. The sound quality is perfect with no interference at all, and the size of the headphones fits just right. For the price of these, why would you want to pay loads of money for very expensive ones, as these do just the same job? Also, you can answer your phone through them and, again, the sound is very clear, and it works perfectly too. I would recommend buying these; I will be buying another set soon for my other half. — Jo
