Take calls and get the most out of your earbuds without breaking the bank

Trying to find the best cheap headphones is already a tough task with the number of options out there, and it gets more difficult when trying to find the best earbuds under an affordable price point. A headset — earphones or earbuds (or even a single earbud) with a microphone and controls — is a different beast than a set of earbuds or headphones without a mic. For starters, not every set will work with Android when you need to answer calls and adjust the volume. Plus, when products are cheap, there are thousands of choices to wade through. So we chose the best ones.

Foam fit

KLIM Fusion Earbuds

Staff Pick

They handle calls just fine, fit better than average, and aren't terrible to wear. Best of all, they sound awesome. The Fusion Earbuds also include memory foam ear-tips so that you'll get the best fit possible without having to worry about ear fatigue. Plus, KLIM offers a 5-year warranty if anything goes awry with your amazing earbuds.

For the gym

JLab Metal Bluetooth Earbuds

These Bluetooth sports headphones check the right boxes if you need earbuds with a microphone and pretty good sound quality. Offering six-hour battery life and an IP55 water-resistance rating, these headphones are perfect for someone frugal that needs wireless earbuds purely for runs and workouts.

Type C

HTC USonic Adaptive Audio Earphones

Seeing a pair of USB-C earbuds with a mic and at an affordable price is a surprise, but seeing a couple as nifty and versatile as the HTC Usonic is even more of a surprise. These headphones offer a high-resolution DAC to convert standard audio to lossless in a lightweight package. Plus, the audio coming in will be optimized for your ears and outside noise levels.

Great fit

JBL Endurance RUN - Wired Sport In-Ear Headphones

JBL's Endurance RUN earbuds have a universal mic and music controls, an IPX5 sweat rating and can be worn "traditionally" with the cable hanging down or looped behind your ear. JBL also included magnets in the earbuds themselves to provide better cable management when you're finished with your workout.

Awesome for calls

Sony MDR-EX155AP

The Sony MDR-EX155AP are a fantastic choice thanks to the 45-degree angled design, which allows the earbuds to sit better in your ear canal. The in-line mic makes it easy to chat on the phone without much background noise and includes playback controls if you're listening to some tunes. Plus, there are a few different colors to choose from so that you can get some headphones that match your style.

Most comfortable

Panasonic ErgoFit

Want cheap earbuds that you can wear all day? The Panasonic ErgoFit earbuds are great. The sound is decent for music or phone calls, and they aren't the prettiest things to look at. Luckily, whatever the tips are made of is awesome because they fit inside your ear without bugging you along the way.

$17 at Amazon $10 at B&H

Unique fit

Skullcandy Ink'd+ In-Ear Earbud

Although these don't sport a 45-degree angle, the Skullcandy Ink'd+ promise a noise-isolating fit in part due to the earbud tips themselves. These come in seven different colors to choose from, and you get two extra sets of earbud tips to find your best fit. Skullcandy also offers a two-year warranty if something goes awry.

$13 at Amazon $32 at Best Buy

Tangle-free cable

Samsung Type-C Earphones

Samsung's Type-C are included with certain Samsung smartphones, but now you can get them alone. The headphones come with four different interchangeable ear tips so that you get the best sound out of these AKG-tuned headphones. Additionally, the in-line microphone has three buttons, allows you to control phone calls, and you won't have to worry about dongles with the USB-C connector.

$11 at Amazon

Lightweight and reliable

Skullcandy Dime True Wireless

If you're looking for some durability at a price you can afford, the Skullcandy Dime fits the bill. They've got limited battery life at only 3.5 hours per charge max for the earbuds, along with a microphone capable of handling phone calls and voice assistants. Moderate water and sweat resistance could let you get active with them, too.

$20 at Amazon $20 at Best Buy

No wires here

Skullcandy Jib Plus Wireless

Skullcandy's Jib Plus Wireless earbuds remove the need for any additional wires, along with six hours of battery life and a splash-resistant coating. The headphones also have gel tips that fit into your ear to help keep the earbuds in place and come in three different colors.

From $16 at Amazon

Tangle-free lifestyle

Betron BS10 High Definition Headphones

The Betron BS10 headphones are lightweight, sound amazing, and offer passive noise isolation. This is partly because of the six different earbud tips that come in the box so you can find the perfect fit. Plus, the flat rubber cable makes it, so your headphones won't come out of your pocket a jumbled mess that takes forever to unravel.

$16 at Amazon

Wooden aesthetic

Symphonized XTC 2.0 In-Ear Wood Headphones

The Symphonized XTC 2.0 In-Ear headphones are made from real wood to provide a crisp acoustic sound coupled with deep bass. The inline controls not only allow you to skip or pause your music, but there's also a microphone built-in so you can take your calls when they come in.

$19 at Amazon

Get the best earbuds you deserve

You don't have to look too far to find a set of cheap earbuds or headphones that work just the way you want them to work. We've got a selection here that covers all the basics, and you'll be sure to find something you like. For example, I like the KLIM Fusion Earbuds because I dig the sound that comes out of the tiny little things. And you can always know you're getting an excellent seal with the foam ear tips.

For those looking for a superb wireless earbud experience, you can't go wrong with the LETSCOM U8I Bluetooth Earbuds. Not only do these headphones offer up to eight hours of music playback while also sporting a water-resistance rating of IPX7. This makes the U8I Headphones the perfect choice for those looking to get rid of the wires and hit the gym.

Are you looking for something in a higher price range? Are you looking for something specifically wireless? Headphones and earbuds come in all shapes and sizes, so check out our round-up of the best wireless headphones with microphones.

Technics EAH-AZ60 review: Contending in stunning fashion

Technics serves notice that everyone should notice these earbuds. Technics ventured into the wireless earbuds category to go after the big dogs in the race. Think of the likes of Sony, Bose, and Sennheiser on sound quality, as well as the best you can find on design and functionality. It's a combination that comes at a price, but if done right, it gets easier to justify spending more. That's the case Technics makes with its EAH-Z60 earbuds. Its newest pair aims to take what the company has done in the past and make it even better. The results are easy to like and are significant enough to consider them as serious contenders.
