    1. Insermore over-ear headphones can reduce 85% of outside noises, which means you can turn up the bass and tune out your roommate's shenanigans with bae. Those walls are super thin.


    They have soft ear cushions and can be comfortably folded in your backpack!

    Promising review: "The noise canceling function is very powerful. All low-bass noise was filtered and I could still hear the voice from people, even they are very low. Also, playback using this headphone can be done without noise canceling being turned on." —laixuejia

    Price: $41.99

    2. Minluk Bluetooth earbuds have a one-step pairing technology, can be used alone or in a pair, and are a great, affordable option to those Apple Pods you've definitely heard of at one point in time.


    They have a portable charging pod and offer four hours of music playtime with each charge.

    Promising review: "I love it. The quality is more than I expected: The sound is clear and loud. I could not ask for a better pair. My 14-year-old grandson wanted me to order him some as well. He loved it. Thank you for bringing this product to Amazon." —AmazonCustomerJean

    Price: $42.49

    3. Mpow Bluetooth headphones have a specialized aperture driver so your tunes can be evenly balanced, and a hi-fi sound so your ears can have an orgasm every single time.


    They have up to eight hours of battery life and have an optional wired headphone experience.

    Promising review: "These are working great. I bought them so I could listen to YouTube instructional videos and not bother the people around me. They work so well, sometime I can't hear my wife when she asks a question and I have to take them off. She can't hear them when they are playing either. They really block out most outside noises very well. On most videos, I have to turn the volume down or it is too loud. I can't say much for music, as I don't listen to that with these. I only use it for those tutorials on YouTube and it is great. The only drawback I can think of is due to my having larger ears, they do get a little uncomfortable after extended periods of wear." —Gerald Pierce

    Price: $25.59 (available in three colors)

    4. Audio-Technica headphones have quiet point technology that'll erase ambient, outside noise leaving your peace of mind and the big, big beat behind.


    Promising review: "I really like these earbuds. I ride a motorcycle with a helmet. The wind noise is deafening; literally. These cut the wind and engine noise down very well. The wind is what will really take a guy's hearing out. They do not cut all the noise, but enough to where my ears are not ringing when I get home. Sound quality is very good for noise cancelling buds. I really have no complaints at all." —BonJonJovi

    Price: $37.99

    5. Treb Lab Bluetooth headphones are designed with expandable ear tips to block out all of that annoying outside noise, because you really don't want to miss that Beyoncé live stream, do you?


    Promising review: "These are perfect for my gym workouts. I have used them for two straight days without a hitch. They fit me perfectly as packaged, and the instructions in the manual were so clear I had no problems putting it to use right away. It is so rewarding not to have to worry about getting tangled up in a cord or carrying my cellphone with me when I switch between gym equipment. I love the sound! My husband wanted one and we bought a second pair the very next day! Hopefully these will last a long time." —Bargain hound

    Price: $25.97 (available in four colors).

    6. Bluephonic Bluetooth headphones have super-crisp hi-fi sound with tons of bass (no treble), and are ridiculously sweat-proof so feel free to go in during gym time.


    They have up to eight hours of play time.

    Promising review: "I bought these a week ago for when I go out to run. I was running with my AirPods before I got these and had nothing to compare. These sit securely in my ears so I don’t have to worry about them falling out or having to adjust them. With the sound cancellation, all I hear is my music and I can focus just on my run. I’m very pleased with the purchase!" —Adam

    Price: $29.95 (available in two colors)

    7. Mpow Bluetooth headphones are totally water-resistant, which means you can sweat all you want during your workout and the sound will still be crystal clear.


    Promising review: "Great headphones for the price. I wear them every day for at least two hours per day, including at the gym. They are comfortable and stay in my ear just fine. The volume is loud and I am able to connect to my phone and laptop at the same time. They have great range and build quality. The battery lasts a long time — it has over 10 hours of talk time." —Saber A

    Price: $19.99+ (available in four colors)

    8. Plumsott Bluetooth running headphones have a lightweight, and flexible design to hook around your ear, because having your pace being ruined from a fallen earbud sounds like a drag.


    Promising review: "These headphones are super cute! The carrying case they come in makes it super easy to throw in my gym bag. They fit really nicely and the sound is great!" —Shawna

    Price: $35.99

    9. Mpow Bluetooth headphones are perfect for playing your RPG games uninterrupted and have memory cushions to mold to the pattern of your cute ears.


    Promising review: "These headphones are actually a little bit better than I thought when I decided to buy a pair. I wanted better quality in terms of hearing audio, but I'm not exactly someone who listens to music with devices all the time. This seemed to be the best choice, and I do think it's worth it. In terms of audio, it does sound crisp and clear...but at the same time can rock-out if you want to hear it full volume. The only real problem is one of the good features that it has, if you like to wear headphones for a long period of time it will feel slightly uncomfortable over the ears. But that gives superior sound, almost to the point where you could tune-out others around you." —로테군

    Price: $34.99 (available in seven colors)

    10. Tao Tronics headphones have a monitoring mode that can be actively turned on or off in case you need to hear any announcements on public transit. Don't miss your stop!


    Promising review: "I'm really happy with these headphones. It took me awhile to find some that could fit over my ear comfortably and not hurt after long use. I've used these for a couple hours at a time with no problem. I mostly got them to help myself stay focused at work and they've been really helpful. I really like the noise reduction option as well and find that it works pretty well. I also love that these came with a nice case to protect them and that they are easy to store. I think the sound is just fine as well." —B

    Price: $49.99

    11. Dostyle Bluetooth headphones can pair with two devices at one time, which means you can jam to your bops while talking to bae at the same time. Multiplicity.


    Promising review: "I bought these for my husband to use when he watches videos while I’m trying to go to sleep. He used them last night for the first time, and I was able to fall asleep without asking him to turn his volume down. They charged quickly, and have held a charge. He said he really likes the sound and they are comfortable. We are both happy customers!" —Betty

    Price: $25.99

    12. Bose Quiet Comfort headphones let you jam to your tunes without any interruptions for up to 16 hours.


    Plus they have an aware button so you can keep one eye out for trouble heading your way.

    Promising review: "I’ve had mine for a while now, and they are simply the best! Clear and crisp, with excellent noise cancellation. I spend a lot of time in the air, and I won’t get on a plane without them. Crying babies? Not a problem. Small and loud propeller plane? Can’t hear a thing. The only problem is that when the flight attendant comes by or there is an announcement I can miss them because I can’t hear anything except what’s on my iPhone." —Akaya

    Price: $249

    13. Bose Quiet Comfort wireless headphones can be paired with an Alexa device to control whatever devices you have in your house without ever leaving the couch.


    These headphones have up to 20 hours of wireless playback.

    Promising review: "Bose does it again! Without question, these are THE best headphones on the market. The sound is balanced, battery life is long, build quality is excellent and the noise canceling is best in class. Dare I say they might even be underpriced. If they're marked down, grab them. This may be the last set of headphones you buy! I was not compensated for this review and have no relationship with Bose." —Scottso

    Price: $349 (available in three colors)

    14. Avantree Bluetooth headphones are made with a super light design, and all of the controls are on the headphones themselves so you don't have to take your phone out of your pocket!


    Promising review: "I really needed noise canceling headphones that were comfortable to wear for long periods of time. Right away when I put it on, I noticed how remarkably comfortable they were on my ears. It doesn't grip my head too tight, and is just right to be comfortable even with glasses on. As far as noise canceling goes, my demands weren't high but I am still impressed with the product; I could comfortably listen to music on low volume while studying with the ANC button on, and it near completely cancelled out sounds such as a leaf blower going on across the street. I think for someone with low to moderate demands, this is a pretty good choice. Easy to use and super comfy." —N. Lim

    Price: $49.99+ (availble in four colors)

    15. Amasing earbuds have a magnetic design to prevent tangling in your pocket or trusted backpack, plus they have tons of ~amazing~ colors to fit your fancy.


    Promising review: "These are pretty legit. The sound is loud and clear, on par with my favorite Panasonic pair. These were shockingly inexpensive for the quality, plus they are really pretty." —Amanda O.

    Price: $7.99 (available in seven colors)

    16. Sanag Wireless earbuds will be able to blast all your R&B jams with clear AF bass for a house party in your head.


    These bad boys can hold up to 30 hours of playback time!

    Promising review: "These are very easy to carry in my handbag or even in my pocket. The case charges them several times. They feel very natural in my ear and stay in. I like that I can only use one of them if I want to be able to hear what’s going on around me." —dlynn langdonkrake

    Price: $43.99

    17. Beats Solo 3 Wireless headphones have up to 40 hours of battery life and have studio-like sound output so you can jam to those '90s jams without any interruption.

    And let's be real, any headphones co-signed by THE Serena Williams are legendary.

    Promising review: "These headphones are great! They are authentic and come in the original packaging. I use them mostly to study (I listen to static noise) and I wear them during my runs. When I listen to music the sound quality is amazing. I put them on when I am cooking and it really puts me in the groove. My chef skills have definitely been enhanced following the purchase of these headphones. If you can't cook, buy Beats for some good eats!" —Tori G.

    Price: $299.95 (available in 12 colors)
