    Runners, Commuters, And Literally 12,000+ People Love These $20 Headphones

    Good quality, affordable headphones (with 12k+ positive reviews!) that you won't hate yourself for losing...which you probably will.

    There are lot of headphones in 2k19. We've got wireless ones, noise-cancelling options, fancy AirPods, and even pairs with...cords. *gasps*


    And hey! All of those headphone types I listed are great, but they can also come with expensive price tags, and I'm more likely to lose expensive things — that's just a cruel fact of my life.

    I had my AirPods for two weeks (two! weeks!) before losing the case in an airport, and THIS IS WHY I CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS! Anyway, losing my headphone case meant that I had to find good quality, affordable headphones that would get the job done and not send me into a frenzy if lost.

    Well, my friends, if you too are constantly losing your expensive headphones, I have something to show you. It's THESE $20 Mpow wireless and water-resistant headphones! Did you see the part where they cost $20?!?!


    I mean look at this guy! He looks like he's absolutely blown away by the quality of his new wireless headphones that are also pretty cheap.

    But really, these affordable headphones are a great option to have around, especially for those of us who either lose everything, or live among a headphone thief.

    And because you can't have a good pair of headphones without an even greater set of reviews, I should mention these have over 12,200 positive ones and a 4.2-star rating on Amazon., Amazon

    I can see why, too! In addition to being water resistant, they are wireless up to 33 feet, have a 7-9 hour battery life, and a built-in mic. Plus, the headphones come with a case, charging cord, and three extra pairs of ear tips in different sizes.

    "Great headphones for the price. I wear them everyday 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. Good range and build quality. Battery lasts a long time: Over 10 hours of talk time." —HAP

    I mean, this guy looks like he ran an entire marathon in them! That has to be a good sign.

    "I used these for a 10k trail run and had absolutely no problems. They stayed put, and I had no sound problems. Very pleased! They aren't the highest quality sound, but more than adequate for what I use them for. Edit: I have run three half marathons, a marathon, and 10Ks and 5Ks, in the rain, the cold, the heat, and I have had no problems. Still, the sound quality is not the best, but at this price point, I wouldn't expect it to be. I would buy these again!" —sw

    And for 20 stinkin' dollars, they look pretty sleek.,

    "I'll just keep this simple. I have bought TONS of earbuds. A lot. And I still can't find anything comparable to these when the whole package is considered. They come with a protective case, they are extremely durable, the sound quality is good (with solid bass performance), the pairing is easy as heck, and the customer service is very friendly. I just rarely come across a product that I like this much so forgive me if I'm sounding a bit dramatic. This is seriously one of the best things I've ever purchased on Amazon, and I'm more than happy to give them more of my money in the future. Thank you! :)" —Ramon The Traveler

    Now we can go to work, the gym — shoot, maybe even run marathons — and listen to our favorite music or podcasts without stressing about losing expensive headphones. I'll ~jam~ to that!
