    If you're in need of some WFH tech these are some of the useful things for anyone with a laptop, especially since they're waterproof (to protect against those accidental coffee spills).

    Promising review: "These are the absolute best! I’ve gone through a number of headphones as I’m a marathon runner and I find they often die — likely due to the amount of sweat going through them. These headphones have lasted me the longest of any headphones and are still going! The other best thing is the battery life!! They last me SO many workouts - probably 2-3x more than any other headphones I’ve used." —Emily

    Get it from Amazon for $39.99 (available in five colors and for 20% off when coupon is applied before checkout).

    2. A pair of Skullcandy Bluetooth earbuds that can handle going through the washer *and dryer* according to one reviewer (though we wouldn't recommend actually washing them). But, if you're someone who forgets to clean their pockets out before laundry — these might be for you!

    On top of being waterproof, these come with a charging case, a built-in microphone, and up to 33 hours of battery life.

    Promising review: "These are pretty decent and I love that you can use either of them independently, and they both have a microphone. Battery life is great, especially because I almost always wear only one at a time so if the battery on one gets low, I just switch to the other. I accidentally washed and dried one of the earbuds with my clothes and it actually still works, so that's pretty impressive to me. I do have to keep my phone on me or in the same room as me or it starts cutting out. But overall, I paid $19 for them during black Friday and they are a solid pair of wireless headphones for the price." —Alyssa

    Get it from Walmart for $26.99 (originally $34.97; available in two colors).

    3. A set of Bluetooth earbuds with a sleek design featuring a built-in mic and touch controls for those hands-free phone calls, and a charging display on the case (so you keep tabs on that ever-important battery life).

    Customize the feel with the three included ear-tips and enjoy up to 35 hours of play when the earbuds are fully charged. For those looking for some tunes while you drift off to sleep, you may also enjoy these Bluetooth sleep headphones one BuzzFeed editor is obsessed with. 

    Promising review: "I usually have to deal with my earbuds falling out all the time and either losing them or not being able to keep them in. These have been perfect and stay put until I'm finished with them! They have a silicone tip, so they don't hurt my ears after using them and fit comfortably. You also can't beat the price for such a good pair! Great sound quality and quick charge!" —Carissa

    Get it from Walmart for $25.99 (originally $109.99).

    4. A pair of waterproof Bluetooth earbuds reviewers claim can handle a sink-full of water without suffering damage. Now, even rain won't be able to stop you from feeling that ~main character~ energy during your daily mid-afternoon walk.

    The charging case can provide up to 40 hours of continuous music time and also features a digital display showing its battery life.

    Promising review: "First off, I'm so glad I went ahead and purchased these. They are amazing. I literally wear them all day — and they are definitely waterproof. I dropped one in a sink full of water and didn't realize it until like three minutes later. It was underwater the whole time and still worked fine. I definitely don't recommend submerging them, but you can wear them in the rain, shower, or even swimming. They haven't disappointed so far. We'll just have to see how long they last." —PlayboyFly

    Get it from Amazon for $32.99 (available in five colors and for $6 off when coupon is applied before checkout).

    5. A pair of Bluetooth earbuds ideal for anyone longing for their own set of wireless earbuds, but can't bring themselves to spend over $100. These are literally $20 and come with a charging case that allows up to 30 hours of playtime.

    The weather-resistant technology also allows you to listen come rain or shine.

    Promising review: "They come in a nice hard carrying case with a zipper that holds the earbuds charging case. I like that the earbuds power on and pair each other automatically when the charging case is opened. They really do stay in the ear and cancel out noise without having to max out the volume. I put them to the test, and I could not hear the TV, and I was standing right next to it. With that said, I highly recommend this brand and product. You will love them!" —Esmi22

    Get it from Walmart for $19.99 (originally $39.99; available in four colors).

    6. A pair of Bluetooth earbuds under $50 with up to 30 hours of battery life for uninterrupted daydreaming out the window during those long train rides into work. Each earbud also features touch controls for your music and phone for added comfort.

    Carry your earbuds in the slim charging case that's built to be sweat and water resistant.

    Promising review: "The battery surprisingly lasts for a long time, and the case does not run out of charge easily. I only charge the earbuds every couple of days and the case fully charges them every time. As for the earpieces, the sound quality is relatively good. For someone who likes a lot of bass this is ok, but for someone who doesn't like much bass these would be pretty good." —Mario

    Get it from Amazon for $32.89 (available in two styles and for $3 off when coupon is applied before checkout).

    7. A set of Bluetooth earbuds under $50 that come with a voice assistant giving you hands-free control. Now, you can avoid that awkward dance that occurs when your headphone wires get caught on a chair as you do your Sunday cleaning.

    amazon.com

    This is one of the cool tech items you can own for its bass sound, up to 25 hours of battery life, and dual connect, which allows you to choose to listen or make calls using one or both earbuds.

    Promising review: "I love these earbuds and since I mainly wear these while I’m working or cleaning the house, I couldn’t justify a heavy price tag for a frivolous thing. I was happy that the music sounded balanced and the bass/treble sounded just like my Bose car stereo, and they were comfortable to wear. They were recognized and connected easily to my iPhone via Bluetooth. I’ve also used them as a telephone and people said it sounded like I was on speakerphone with no buzzing or interference. Huge plus!" —Karisa Rumsey

    Get it from Amazon for $49.95 (originally $99.95; available in three colors).

    8. A pair of Bluetooth earbuds made with a loop design to help these stay inside your ear, so you can avoid the panic that comes when one earbud falls out as you take your mask on and off.

    Looking for gadgets to buy on a random evening? These are compatible with iOS and Android gadgets and come with a charging case that provide up to 10 hours of play time each charge.

    Promising review: "I thought I would try these for the hooks as I have a tough time keeping earbuds in my ears. I didn't expect the great sound they would have! I especially like how they have great bass without it overpowering everything else. The buttons are easy to learn and use — I find some touch buttons on earbuds can be hard to use correctly. I would definitely recommend these to anyone looking for a low-cost option that gives you a higher cost sound." —Sherry

    Get it from Walmart for $29.99 (originally $109.99)

    9. A set of button-controllable Bluetooth earbuds for just under $30 that'll have even your best buds saying, "Wait, how much??" Reviewers are finding even the sweatiest workouts won't deter these from providing you clear sounds thanks to its waterproof technology — no sweatband needed.

    Each earbud features a side button for stop and play control and its dual connectivity allows you to listen seamlessly through one or both earbuds.

    Promising review: "So far so good and I've had these a little more than a month. The sound (for music apps) and how they fit are also on par with Apple. I got these for their waterproof rating because sweaty workouts have destroyed multiple pairs of headphones for me, including Apple's. Battery life is impeccable, although I tend to only use them for my workouts, which are an hour a day. Call quality isn't amazing, but for the price? Hardly a big deal." —Mlle. Wolf

    Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (available in six colors).
