Cheap earbuds are a dime a dozen on Amazon, but let's face it: some of them aren't the best in terms of audio quality. If you just need something for phone calls, that's fine — but if you want audiophile-worthy sound, you want a company like Sennheiser. This brand has a long-standing reputation for mind-blowing audio quality across a wide range of products, from earbuds to headphones. Right now, the Sennheiser CX True Wireless earbuds are nearly 55% off — down to $60 from $130. And the 450BT headphones are 35% off, bringing them down to $130 from their usual $200.
"These headphones are seriously great. I’ve owned a pair of Bose Quiet Comfort earbuds, a few Beats earbuds, a set of Ankers, and some Apple AirPods — Seinheiser beats all of them by a mile in sound quality, comfort, and aesthetic. 10/10 would recommend these earbuds," one user said.
"Best quality earbuds for the price," said a reviewer who gave them five stars. "The sound quality is probably the best I have had in earbuds, whether they be wired or wireless...the passive noise cancelation is baller. Like incredible for Passive noise canceling. If you're looking to buy some new headphones but don't wanna pay too much, these are really solid."
These headphones come with four different ear tip sizes to help ensure the best possible fit, while the Smart Control app — available for both iPhone and Android devices — lets you customize the headphones to suit your personal tastes. The app also assists in Bluetooth pairing for easy setup. Want even better audio quality? The Bass Boost feature can be activated at any time to enhance the bass and provide deeper lows to any song.
One user said you can't go wrong with these. "As soon as I tried them the sound was amazing. The app is easy to use and connected easily to my phone. They aren't the newest model but are well worth it because Sennheiser is known for quality."
If earbuds aren't your jam and you want something a bit more comfortable for wearing for longer periods, consider the Sennheiser 450BT headphones instead.
The Sennheiser HD 450BT headphones fit over the ears and include tremendous battery life, as well as on-device controls for easily activating smart assistants (Siri and Google Assistant!) There are also different modes to pick from depending on the type of content. One is a Podcast Mode for better dialogue clarity, and there are also numerous equalization settings to customize the sound to your own tastes.
"Battery lasts almost two days with my almost constant use (I'm obsessed). I don't currently travel but this one folds and looks easy to pack and carry if you do!" said one mom that just wanted some quiet.
What sets Sennheiser apart? As we mentioned before, this brand is built with high-fidelity audio in mind. These are primarily for music, rather than phone calls or working out. Sure, you can use Sennheiser products for that with ease — but just be prepared to hear your tunes in a way that might have you singing along in the gym.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
