We can agree that the convenience and freedom of a wireless headphone can’t compare to a traditional wired headphone. However, the added flexibility of a wireless headphone is often traded with a loss of audio quality or increase cost. We have created a list of headphones and earbuds that are wireless, with little to no compromises.

The Anker Soundcore Life Q10 is an over the ear wireless Bluetooth headphone that is under $50 yet still packs a punch. The audio quality is exceptional and delivers a clear listening experience.

The battery life on the headphones is fantastic, rated to last 60 hours of playtime, but charges quickly; five minutes of charge allows you to listen for five hours. The foldable and durable design allows you to take the headphone wherever you go.
