The 5 Best Wireless Earbuds for Under $50


The integration of wireless audio products into the mainstream has certainly led to a lot of innovation and impressive technology, and it’s interesting to think that in the past few years, we’ve gotten products like the Sony WH-1000MX4, Apple’s AirPods Max, Samsung Galaxy Buds series, and more. While these are all great-sounding devices, they are a bit on the expensive side, and maybe you’re after something a bit more wallet-friendly – this is where we come in.

What that said, we’ve made a quick little list of some of the best-sounding wireless earbuds out there. If you’re in the market for an affordable pair that doesn’t compromise on sound quality, has good battery life, and other nifty little features, then check these out!

1More Comfobuds

1More’s line of audio products is steadily growing, and the company has proven that it’s got the chops to make some of the best-sounding, value-for-money audio gear on the market. The 1More “Comfobuds” line of products has seen several follow-ups like the Comfobuds 2 and Pro, but even the first-generation pair still sound good today.

The Comfobuds come with instant pairing, so syncing them to your smartphone takes a few seconds. They also sound good thanks to the 13.4mm dynamic drivers, and are great for phone calls courtesy of four environmental noise cancellation (ENC) microphones, which focus on amplifying your voice while reducing external noise.

The Comfobuds also have an IPX5 rating, which means that they’ll be safe for light rain and workouts.
