Are you planning on getting an iPhone 7? If you don’t want to pay $159 more for Apple’s AirPods, here are five wireless headphone alternatives, starting at $30
1. LG TONE PRO HBS 760
LG’s wireless Bluetooth headphones come with a 200 mAh battery that will give you about 16 hours of call time and up to 10.5 hours of listening to music. Charging the headphones takes something like two hours. As you can see in the picture, the headphones have a unique design composed of what looks like a “chain” for wearing around your neck, while the headphones themselves are in-ear.
Price: $30 through Amazon.com (not including delivery, taxes, etc.).
Don’t let the fancy design of the headphones fool you; BOHM’s wireless headphones are designed to compete head-to-head with those of Beats and Bose by offering a premium product at quite a friendly price. The headphones also include noise-cancelling technology, so that you will be able to disconnect from your surroundings as much as possible, when necessary. Where the battery is concerned, three hours of charging will provide you with 16-18 hours of music and calls.
3. Bragi – The Headphone
The company decided to launch these a day after the launch of the iPhone 7. This set of Bluetooth headphones are quite compact, and come with a battery life of six hours per charge. Every set of headphones comes with a charging kit that can be worn around the neck in order to charge their 100 mAh battery. The charging time is about two hours.
4. TechElec SP-X
If you do a lot of jogging or are a gym rat who never takes your iPhone headphones out of your ears, then allow us to introduce to you an alternative that is not only slightly more comfortable than Apple’s headphones, but is also sweat-proof. TechElec’s ergonomic headphones are guaranteed to fit the shape of your ear perfectly, and to stay in place during any type of exercise. These headphones also include noise-reduction technology, and their Bluetooth v4.1 reception reaches a distance of up to 15 meters. The lifespan of the headphones’ battery is seven hours of continuous playing or 140 hours of standby.
5. JBL E40BT
JBL headphones will wrap your ears in sound guaranteed to be clear and precise for up to 16 hours. The E40BT headphones also include a “share me” feature that will facilitate wireless streaming of the music you are listening to another support device (did someone say a headphones party?). Incidentally, the headphones come in a range of colors, and if you go for one of the less standard colors (blue and red), you can save a couple of bucks.
