5 Bluetooth Headphones That Actually Work
This piece was written by the people who run the Cracked Store to tell you about products that are being sold there.
Your wire-based headphones are growing more and more useless. But from the ashes of their futility, a brand-new technology arises. That technology is Bluetooth. How do you know which Bluetooth headphones are right for you? Leave that to us. We've collected for you five fantastic wireless audio options to save your ear holes from an endless battery of poking and prodding and trial and error. And all for a considerably lower price than the hundreds of dollars you would normally pay.
HBQ i7 Twins True Wireless Earphones
When laid out in front of you, the HBQ i7 Twins True Wireless Earphones kind of look like a pair of quotation marks. Does that mean they have a propensity for sarcasm? They might, but let us tell you, the sound quality on these cord-free upside-down commas are no joke. They feature ultra-low latency audio with Bluetooth 4.2, up to five hours of call time or music playback, and they even filter out background noise to account for their unsealed fit. Get these affordable cousins of the AirPod for $29.99.
Acesori A.Buds Bluetooth Aluminum Earbuds
The Acesori A. Buds are a pretty solid choice for your workout days and sweet summer workout nights. They're tethered to each other to avoid getting separated, and the familiar silicone in-ear design is much better at staying in place during vigorous activity. These buds magnetically attach to each other when not in use, and the wear-resistant aluminum finish is so handsome that it could land a role on Blue Bloods. Grab these for only $19.99.
TREBLAB Wireless Sport Earbuds
"But Cracked Store," you say, reading this while doing burpees in between juggling a set of dumbbells, "I'm like seriously, seriously into fitness. Get me something to handle my mad levels of intensity, bro." First off, wow, these workout fads have really gotten out of hand. But secondly, if you're the type who has marathon-length training sessions, then you're going to want something that won't stop until you tell it to. The TREBLAB XR500's are wireless sport earbuds with a secure fit in your ears, sweat resistance, a monster nine-hour battery life, and CMC 6.0 noise cancellation. If these fit any better, they'd be considered a part of your brain. Normally $180, you can grab a pair for just $37, or 79 percent off.
1Voice Bluetooth On-Ear Headphones
Have you ever heard the adage "nothing should go into your ear that's smaller than your elbow"? Maybe only if you regularly hang out with grandpas, but if it's a philosophy that you subscribe to, then that doesn't mean you have to miss out on the wireless fun. These 1Voice Bluetooth Headphones offer some extra comfort and up to five hours of continuous playback. Unlike most full-sized cans, there's also an integrated mic for taking phone calls or barking orders at Siri. But most importantly, they'll keep your delicate ear canals away from tiny rubber pieces. These were already discounted to $46, but you can pick 'em up now for just $22.99.
Avantree AptX Low Latency Bluetooth Headphones
The Avantree AptX Low Latency Bluetooth Headphones are the Cadillac of this list, and if you can afford to spend a little more, they're totally worth it. They offer instant sync for any phones that use near-field communication, and have a 3.5mm analog jack if you want to plug into your old stereo amp. Their studio-monitor-style construction looks as good as anything pro DJ's would wear, and you don't even need to keep mentioning your record label while you wear them. Plus, they provide a bubble-boy-level cushion to your ears, making them really nice for games, movies, or just getting lost in some music. Get an earful of luxury here for $69.99.
