Absolute steal: TaoTronics Bluetooth Headphones 2019Staff 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 colourful 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 colours, 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.
Total liberty: Anker Soundcore Liberty Air
Most truly wireless earbuds have a bulky charging case, but the Soundcore Liberty Air bucks the trend with a compact case. Its pocketability gives it a significant advantage, as does the aggressive pricing. The Bluetooth 5.0 earbuds offer decent sound quality, touch controls for music playback, built-in microphones for taking calls, a solid variety of ear tips, and five-hour battery life.
Excellent value: Anker Wireless Headphones
Whether you are caught up in the rain or breaking a sweat in the gym, you don't have to stop the music since The SoundBuds Slim has a waterproof build which defies sweat, rain and water. To achieve a tailored fit and superb comfort, the Buds come with several ear tips and wings in different sizes. They have a magnetic cord clip to hold the buds together when not in use, and for their price? You get superb sound.
Pure bass sound: JBL T500BT
Pairing your S10 with the JBL T500BT headphones lets you enjoy the signature JBL Pure Bass Sound and the convenience of hands-free calling. Available in four fresh colours, the headphones have a padded headband and soft ear cushions for maximum comfort, and a foldable design for easy portability. Equipped with 32mm JBL drivers, they do deliver superb bass, all day.
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 which 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 reliable option if you're looking to go the truly wireless route. Combining excellent 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-cancellation 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.
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 2019. 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 is a great choice. You get Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity, five-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.
