The best budget earbuds with great sound quality

August 31, 2022

It is possible to purchase a set of budget earbuds without sacrificing your listening experience – and eardrums – in the process. The JLab Go Air Pop is a terrific cheap option that makes it possible for discerning listeners to enjoy solid sound at a budget price.

They don’t only beat anything in their price range for sound; they belie their lowly price point, sounding far better than you’d expect for its cheap price. Our testing of these wireless earbuds proved that vocals are relatively well handled through the mids, the bass is sensibly handled, and the soundstage is relatively expansive. 

GO Air POP features 8+ hours of playtime in each earbud and 24+ extra hours from the charging case (32+ hours total). Return to the case to recharge the buds, and use the integrated USB cable to charge the case.Use either earbud independently or use both together. A built-in MEMS microphone in each bud ensures clear calls.

The JLab Go Air Pop is a very affordable proposition and has a spec sheet that no other solution to date has managed at this level. If your budget is up to $20 / £20 / AU$50, that should suffice.
