Sometimes you find a great pair of headphones at a great price, but this is ridiculous! At half-off, these $10 Sony ZX Series Stereo Headphones cost less than lunch. They’re wired, with a nearly four-foot-long cable and a 3.5mm headphone jack, and offer primo stereo sound.
"These are great headphones for music and movies," wrote a satisfied Amazon shopper. "...I've never been bothered by outside noise — they’re comfortable, and the sound is of good quality."
They're so popular that they've earned a flawless five-star rating from more than 35,400 reviewers too.
Go wireless! On sale for $27 with an on-page coupon (down from $35), these Mpow 059 Bluetooth Headphones have a long 33-foot Bluetooth range, which means you can have your device in one room and listen to your favorite music or podcast (without interruption or audio degradation) in another. This is ideal for taking calls and moving around your home without being tethered to your smartphone or tablet.
Amazon reviewers have put this feature to the test: "The range is good," shares one. "Sometimes I'll get up to use the bathroom and they have never cut out. Sometimes I'll go downstairs and make a sandwich. Still good to go at probably around 40 to 50 feet..."
These wireless headphones are so well-liked, they've earned a perfect five-star rating from more than 40,000 Amazon users.
In a subtle rose gold, these Picun P26 Hi-Fi Stereo Wireless Headphones, with over 6,200 perfect five-star ratings, offer up superior audio with deep, booming bass. They’ll stay strong for up to 80 hours per charge — that’s more than three full days of use. And they’re incredibly comfy, thanks to memory-foam ear cushions and adjustable metal sliders for a perfect fit.
Says a five-star shopper: "The cushions are soft — I could have these on for hours and they don't irritate me. It does have a plastic material feel, as long as you're not too rough or drop them repeatedly, they should last. ... Once the Bluetooth was set, they instantly paired to my Galaxy S9. The sound quality is really good for the price too. It has deep bass and clear highs and mids. The quality stays the same even in wired mode."
The Mpow H7 Bluetooth Headphones deliver exceptional audio clarity with booming bass at a shockingly low price — 20 bucks! This pair also has a long battery life of up to 25 hours per charge — that’s a full day of use — plus soft memory-protein ear cushions and adjustable metal sliders that were designed with comfort in mind.
Not surprisingly, Amazon shoppers have been loving their durability and sound quality. "I am still impressed each time I put them on. I use them daily. They connect to my iPhone and Apple TV flawlessly," said a delighted five-star reviewer. "The battery life is exceptional. The quality of the sound is great — very well balanced. The built-in EQ [that's audio equalizer, for you audiophobes] is not flat like studio monitors."
Mpow's noise-reduction technology immerses you in your favorite music and podcasts without completely (perhaps dangerously) shutting out ambient sound. These headphones are also super-popular —more than 14,700 Amazon reviewers have given them five stars.
