Finding the right headphones can be a bit of a hassle. Especially for us geeky wire-cutters who want to find the best bluetooth options. Options are simply not as abundant, and it’s not easy to find good bluetooth headphones in most retail stores.
We feel your pain, so we have put together a neat list of our very favorite bluetooth headphones, ranging in quality, looks and price ranges. This will also be a good guide for those who are looking to buy some good holiday gifts!
Good sound quality for media and music is always welcomed, so you can be sure any of these will make great presents. And if you would rather look at some good speakers, we have also published a list of our very favorite bluetooth speakers.
Beats Studio wireless headphones
They may be a bit overrated and over-priced, but in a world where quality bluetooth headphones are a bit rare the Beats Studio Wireless headphones are a blessing. Yes, they will cost you close to $400, but these is a solid set of cans.
Beats are known for their strong bass and live music-like effects, which is something the Studio Wireless headphones definitely gets right. Battery life is also nothing to scoff at, with an average of 12 hours per charge. And if you want to close out the rest of the world, its active noise-canceling technology works great.
Jabra REVO wireless headphones
Those looking for something high-quality, yet much more reasonably priced, can take a look at the Jabra Revo. These headphones offer great sound quality and comfort. I would be willing to say they match Beats’ alternative at under half the price.
It also sports an NFC chip for easy pairing, a cool design and even touch controls. The official app also allows you to fine-tune your levels, inc ase you really want to get technical.
Bose AE2w bluetooth headphones
Here is Beats’ main competitor – Bose. The company certainly has some bluetooth options that offer great quality. Some would argue these actually offer much better sound compared to Beats headphones, but they cost just as much.
The Bose AE2w headset costs around $250, but it offers great quality sound. They are also very light and comfortable, but they definitely don’t look as good as the two options listed above. That is to be expected, though. Bose is not known for its good looking products.
Plantronics BackBeat GO 2 bluetooth earbuds
We know we haven’t offered you a set of bluetooth headphones that is pocketable. The truth is options are scarce, but our favorite small bluetooth headphones are the Plantronics BackBeat GO 2.
These are very discrete and offer great sound, even if the low on bass. They are also sweat proof, which will be a great addition for those with active lifestyles. As oyu may guess, the smaller body does mean shorter battery life. This thing stays alive only for about 4.5 hours.
Thankfully, the setup comes with a charging case, which can offer 10 extra hours of playback. Not a bad deal for the price, to be honest.
Kinivo BTH240 bluetooth headphones
We do realize most of the options above are a bit over-priced. That’s because they are the best of the best, coming from renown brands. Does this mean you can’t get quality at an accessible price? Definitely not. There’s a good list of good, affordable bluetooth headphones.
The Kinivo BTH240 happens to be our favorite set. It’s no high-end pair of headphones, but it offers great quality. And get this – these headphones cost only $25! No need to break the bank, guys.
