Spread the love

We’ve taken the work out of your wireless earbud search by researching other “best earbuds” lists, combing through earbud user reviews and by actually testing many different earbuds over the years. The search for a good earbud does not need to break the bank. And going for the cheaper option doesn’t mean you need to accept a lousy headphone. Having said that, finding the best earbuds on a budget for your cardio workout can still be tricky because there are a lot of bad ones. Here are the best “earbuds under 50 dollars” for your cardio workout we found.

1. Otium Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds


The Otium wireless bluetooth earbuds are ideal for any type of training. I have these earbuds myself and absolutely love them. The Otium earbuds are great for running, jogging, hiking, biking and working out in the gym. They stay securely in your ear with the comfortable ear hook. They have superb sound quality and Bluetooth V4.1+EDR for stereo sound. Even while music is playing in the background, these earbuds hold their own. The battery life lasts up to 8 hours and has a quick charge time. Other features that are very helpful are the easy-to-use buttons. The buttons allow you to skip, pause, and play without reaching for your phone. This is helpful when you are lifting heavy. It is also very easy to connect to Bluetooth. For all of these reasons, the Otium earbuds in at number one.

2. TaoTronics Wireless 4.2 Magnetic Earbud


Ideal for those who like to be active, the TaoTronics Wireless 4.1 Magnetic Earbuds Stereo Earphones are the perfect active wear earbuds. These earbuds are secure and stay snug on your ears. This is great when you are moving around a lot to bike, run, jog, walk or workout at the gym. They come with built-in magnets that make it easy to attach the two headphones together whenever they are not in use. This feature ensures that they do not get tangled in your pocket or in your bag. You can wear them around your neck almost like a necklace until you are ready to use again. Their battery life is respectable at almost 5 hours per charge. Like most rockin’ earbuds, TaoTronics has isolation technology that reduces ambient noise. For any kind of cardio activity, these earbuds are a great purchase under 50 dollars.

3. Anker SoundBuds Slim Wireless Headphones

The Anker SoundBuds are perfect for any cardio activity you can throw at them. These earbuds are the paragon of precision engineering: providing the happy user with 6-millimeter drivers that offer skip-free audio. Not surprisingly, these earbuds have a reputation for their secure fit. Unlike some of our other “under 50” options, these little dynamos can last up to seven hours with one full charge. These are also water-resistant. That is helpful when you are sweating. The internal nano coating offers two different layers of protection against water damage. You can choose your own size of ear buds from the selection that comes in the pack and the USB cable that comes with the Anker SoundBuds Slim Wireless set.

4. Phaiser BHS-730

The Phaiser BHS-730 Bluetooth Headphones makes our list on the “best earbuds under 50″ list. These earbuds offer high-definition sound thanks to the big boy (or girl) speakers that grace these beauties.  Unlike some of the round earbuds, Phaiser is bullet-shaped with a snug fit that is sure to stay put in your ear even during the most cardio-heavy activities. These earbuds also come with patented winged earphone tips that keep everything in place.  Perhaps most importantly, for the hard working cardio chick (or dude), these earbuds are sweat proof, which means they won’t give up the ghost after an intense workout. The Phaiser BHS-730 Bluetooth Headphones feature magnetic tips that allow for simple storage as they connect with one another when not in use. This means that you don’t have to worry about them getting tangled or caught on something or someone while you’re moving your feet.
