Best earbuds with microphone under $20 in 2023

Finding the best cheap headphones is already a challenging task with all the options available. It gets even more complicated when finding the best ones at an affordable price point. Remember that a headset (earphones or earbuds with a microphone and controls) is different from a set of earbuds or headphones without a mic. But no matter your preference, not every pair will work with Android when answering calls and adjusting the volume. With thousands of products to wade through, we chose the best earbuds under 20 bucks, so you can find the right fit for your lifestyle.
