This is an analysis of our best wireless headphones for less than 100 Dollars that offer quality and enough performance to use them at work, play sports or to take them anywhere.
Usually Top class headphones are expensive, especially those with the wireless or Bluetooth functionality. Just as it applies to many other products, there are also cheaper products which are not necessarily bad but compensate for some top features in order to have a reduced price. In our assessment we have taken into account aspects such as sound, connectivity, comfort or performance.
Best Wireless Headphones Less than 100 Dollars in 2018
We chose the SoundPEATS Bluetooth 4.1 model as our favorite. They have the highest grade of all we have tried and are the ones that offer more complete benefits for the lowest price.
SoundPEATS Bluetooth 4.1 – Advanced features at low price
The SoundPEATS Bluetooth 4.1 is one of the bestselling wireless headphones online. It combines good price with advanced features taken from previous similar models. The sound is acceptable and the songs sound somewhat metallic, a common complaint in many users who have commented on the model in other Internet forums. But, despite what the announcement of the manufacturer brand says, they do not really cancel the exterior sound.
Size and weight: 9.9 x 9.7 x 4.8 centimeters and 15 grams.
Battery life: Up to 6 hours.
Others: Noise cancellation and magnetic feature (you can join the two headphones and use it as a necklace).
The model comes with three pairs of diadems and three silicone plugs in small, medium and large sizes. The two headphones are fastened with a magnet, although their force field is weak. In total, they weigh about 18 grams. Copying to the Beats model, the microphone, with the pause and playback commands, is embedded in the cable. They are easily charged with the use of a micro USB cable and in the test carried out the battery has a range of up to 4 hours.
The Bluetooth connection is quite random. There are times when it connects perfectly and sometimes when it takes more time. It certainly depends on the model, but in the initial configuration period it was connected to the fifth attempt.
In short, it is a cheap headset and provides a decent service, probably during a good season. It is not the best sound or the hardest, but it serves for those who fear losing or breaking an earpiece of this type and do not want to spend an astronomical amount. And they are perfect as second headphones, for use in sports or in situations where they can be lost or damaged.
What we like: The value for money, without a doubt. It is comfortable and has good autonomy and good reproduction. They are quite resistant and worth their price.
What we don’t like: Precisely, price limitations. The sound is not of high quality in the bass. Ergonomics is not the best and when running it is likely to fall from the ear more than once.
Conclusion: It is a cheap headset and provides a decent service, probably during a good season. It is not the best sound or the hardest, but it serves for those who fear losing or breaking an earpiece of this type and do not want to spend an astronomical amount. And they are perfect as second headphones, for use in sports or situations where they can be lost or damaged.
Cowin E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones
They are a good option for those who do not have a high budget and want an item to take on the plane on long trips or to work in noisy environments. Of course, its noise cancellation is somewhat weak, and for it to work you must have the cable connected. If the noise from outside is very loud, something will be heard.
The sound is acceptable and does not distort until it reaches 80% of the volume, but it is not a problem that will affect the average user, because the volume is in itself good.
The cover of the headband makes them comfortable, and nothing in their construction suggests that they will present problems such as loss of the pad or misalignment of the headband. Of course, the material of the pad gives heat to the ear. They are also, somewhat heavy: 386 grams.
The manufacturer assures that the battery lasts 30 hours and the certain thing is that in four days of use in spaces of three or four hours they did not have to load them at any time.
Mpow Thor Bluetooth Headphones
These are very impressive headphones for the price. Good sound, some distortion when it exceeds 75% volume. Especially in the serious ones.
We tried two models because the first had what we assume was a factory defect: the right earphone sounded more than the left one. It can be solved by balancing the emission from the source (telephone, computer), but it is a problem to do it constantly.
Because of its design, it is not the one that isolates the exterior sound, although, again, the price compensates for this problem. They are not noise cancelling headphones.
More in terms of design: the benefits that come in the left earphone – on/off, volume, charge. The volume wheel is what you expect from such an inexpensive item. In addition, they are the heaviest in its range, with about 250 grams.
There were no problems connecting to the phone – a Samsung Galaxy – in no time.
