Best Overall

Audio-Technica ATH-M50x

Audio-Technica’s ATH-M50x headphones have been out for a few years yet they still are easily one of the best wired headphones you could pick up till this date.

The headphones offer great sound quality and the sound profile is fairly balanced hence it isn’t one of those headphones that have overpowering bass. The 90° swiveling ear cups let you fold the headphones for easy portability. The headphones don’t have any major flaws to mention which is why we think you couldn’t go wrong with the ATH-M50x.

Buy on Amazon: $148.96

SoundMagic E10

The SoundMagic E10 is one of the best overall earphones to get since the sound quality offered by these earbuds are hard to beat even by earphones that are priced twice the price of the SoundMagic E10.

The earphones offer excellent and crisp audio with a decent amount of bass and detailed highs. The earphones are fairly durable as well and should last a long time.

Buy on Amazon: $27.29 

Best for Noise Cancelling

Here’s the best active noise canceling headphones/earphones currently available:

Sony WH1000XM3

When it comes to the best ANC pair of headphones, there are a bunch of options; however, the Sony WH1000XM3 is the best out of the bunch. Sony has always had one of the best ANC headphones in the market and the WH1000XM3’s just take it up a notch.

The headphones offer great audio quality and even come with Alexa built-in hence you won’t even need to touch your phone to order stuff from Amazon or create reminders and much more. The built quality of the WH1000XM3 is top notch as well and the earcups are super comfy. The headphones also support fast charging and can last 30 hours on a single charge.

Bose QuietComfort 20

If you aren’t a big fan of over-the-ear headphones yet still want a great pair of noise-canceling earphones, then the Bose QuietComfort 20 is just what you need. The earphones offer stellar audio quality and the acoustic noise-canceling helps block out unwanted background noise while you tune-into your favorite audio tracks.

The earphones also come with Aware mode which allows you to hear what’s happening around you. This is especially useful when walking on the sidewalk. The StayHear+ tips on the earphones fit comfortably in the ears and don’t fall out easily.

Best for runners

Aftershokz Trekz Air Bone Conducting Headphones

We all know how uncomfortable over-the-ear headphones can be while on a run which is why these headphones from Aftershokz are the ones to pick up if you’re looking for a great pair of headphones to take along for a run. These Wireless Bone Conduction headphones offer the most unusual audio listening experience.

The bone conducting headphones wrap around your ears and let you listen to your favorite tracks while also allowing you to beware of your surrounding while running. The audio quality isn’t as good as in-ear or over-the-ear headphones and earphones; however, these are one of the coolest headphones you could get as of now.

Buy on Amazon: $149.95

Jaybird X4

The Jaybird X3’s were and still are one of the best in-ear Bluetooth earphones to take along for a run. The Jaybird X4’s offer the same great audio quality albeit slightly better and also a great build quality like the X3’s.

The earphones are sweat & waterproof as to be expected and offer a great audio listening experience while on the run. The earphones offer 8 hours of playback on a single charge and a 10-minute charge could get you about 1 hour of playback. The attachable wingtips offer a secure fit in the ear which means you wouldn’t have to be constantly adjusting the earphones on a run.

Best for those on a budget

Tribit XFree Tune Bluetooth Headphones

If you’re looking for the best budget headphones, then look no further than the Tribit XFree Tune Bluetooth headphones. The headphones offer the best audio quality for the price and also do offer decent passive noise canceling as well. The headphones are fairly comfortable as well and do not get too uncomfortable even after long periods of use.

The headphones would pair up with your Galaxy S10 super quick and do have CSR chips and Bluetooth 4.1 technology for efficient and effective pairing over Bluetooth. The headphones take about 4 hours to fully charge and provide 40 hours of playback which is pretty great and on-power with other headphones which cost quadruple the price.

Buy on Amazon: $49.99

Panasonic ErgoFit Earbud

The ErgoFit earphones from Panasonic are one of the best earphones you could get for the price. There’s almost no competition to these great pair of wired earphones.

The audio quality is pretty decent and you even get a microphone and call controller as well for hands-free use. The bass output is pretty great as well considering the price at which these buds are available. The only downside to these earphones is the build quality; however, we couldn’t ask for anything more at this price.

Buy on Amazon: $11.99
