11 Best Cheap Headphones and Earbuds for $100 or Less (2020)

We pretty much have it made here at WIRED. It’s part of our job to listen to music all day, often on exceedingly fancy and bonkers-expensive headphones. We have playlists for testing bass, for assessing detail—we get way into it. So you’d think testing headphones on the cheap end of the spectrum would seem like a chore. But no—we’ve found real and honest joy searching for good headphones and earbuds with price tags between $5 and $100.
