Absolute steal: TaoTronics Bluetooth HeadphonesStaff pick
TaoTronics' headphones deliver crystal-clear sound at a price point that's several hundred dollars less than the competition. They have a comfortable fit for all-day listening, you get 30 hours of playback time from a full charge — with two hours playback after a 5-minute charge — and they come with excellent noise isolation. In short, you're not going to find better Bluetooth headphones at this price.
Stand out: Jabra Move Wireless
Jabra's Move has been a popular choice for some time now because of its colorful design and sound quality. The headband is lightweight enough for all-day wear, and the stainless steel frame should last for years without any issues. It's available in bold colors, delivers over 8 hours of music playback from a full charge, and you can just plug it in via a 3.5mm cable when you need to.
Half-price AirPods: Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2
Most truly wireless earbuds have a bulky charging case, but the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 bucks the trend with a compact case. Its pocketability gives it a major advantage, as does the aggressive pricing. The Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds offer decent sound quality, controls for music playback, built-in microphones for taking calls, a decent variety of ear tips, and seven-hour battery life with wireless charging.
Excellent value: OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2
OnePlus has managed to create one of the best Bluetooth earbuds with the Bullets Wireless 2. The neckbuds deliver great sound for the asking price, and they have a magnetic connector on either end that holds the buds together when not in use. The sound quality has been tweaked for the second-generation, and overall you're getting excellent value for what you're paying.
Great for workouts: Jaybird X4
Jaybird is the go-to option for workout earbuds, and the X4 builds on the company's pedigree by offering IPX7 dust and water resistance and eight-hour battery life. You get Comply's foam tips in the box for a secure fit, and the option to adjust EQ settings via the Jaybird app. There's also an in-line remote that lets you control music playback and take calls.
Absolute comfort: Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2
Plantronics has carved out a name for itself with its affordable audio products, and the BackBeat Pro 2 is one of the best options at this price point. With great hi-res sound, 24-hour battery life, a fold-down design, and excellent noise isolation, the BackBeat Pro 2 gets almost everything right and does so on a budget.
Go truly wireless: Jabra Elite 65t
The Jabra Elite 65t continues to be a solid option if you're looking to go the truly wireless route. Combining great audio quality with a comfortable fit and five-hour battery life, the 65t is great for everyday commuting. You also get IP55 dust and water resistance, and easy access to Alexa and Google Assistant.
New avatar: Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT
With the ATH-M50xBT, Audio-Technica took its best-selling headphones and cut the cord. They sport the same great design as the wired version, which means they're going to be just as durable. Crucially, Audio-Technica hasn't altered the sound signature, making the ATH-M50xBT one of the best-sounding Bluetooth headphones at this price point.
Exquisite sound: Sony WH1000XM3
Excellent audio quality combined with class-leading noise-cancelation and USB-C charging make the WH1000XM3 the headphones to beat in this segment. The design makes the headphones comfortable to wear throughout the day, you get 30 hours of battery life and fast charging options, Alexa and Google Assistant integration, and playback controls on the right earcup. Sony hasn't put a foot wrong here.
Audio bliss: Bowers & Wilkins PX
With adaptive noise cancellation, the Bowers & Wilkins PX lets you manually customize how much noise isolation you want in a particular setting. But what makes the headphones truly stand out is the sound quality — the drivers are angled slightly to deliver more natural stereo sound. The headphones also pause music automatically when you lift an earcup, and resume once you put it back on.
For the audiophiles: Shure SE535-BT1
If you're in the market for wireless earbuds and your main priority is sound quality, look no further than the Shure SE535-BT1. Wonky naming aside, these earbuds offer exceptional audio with a wide soundstage and deep bass. The build quality ensures they don't break down even after thousands of hours of listening, and you get a variety of connectors and ear tips in the box.
Pair your Galaxy S10 with these outstanding headphones
You don't need to shell out exorbitant amounts of money to get a decent pair of Bluetooth headphones, and no product epitomizes that more than the TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones. It's the most affordable option on this list, and it is also the best. The sound quality is on par with products that cost thrice as much — as it the sound isolation — and with over 30 hours of battery life, you'll only need to charge it once a week.
If you need a truly wireless option, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 is a great choice. You get Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, seven-hour battery life, decent sound quality, and a wide variety of ear tips. Best of all, the case is pocketable and charges the earbuds twice over.
