There's no shortage of dirt cheap headphones out there, but throw a few key words into the mix—wireless, Bluetooth, sports—and the prices start jumping higher than Mario at an Apple conference. And while you can check out our top-rated wireless earbuds here, you may want to opt for something cheaper first.
Today, Amazon is offering the TaoTronics wireless Bluetooth 4.1 headphones for $30, down from a "list price" of $70—they are almost never that much, instead usually hovering right around $36 most days. For that you get workout headphones that boast sweat resistance, a built-in microphone, and Bluetooth 4.1 connectivity. They even have the fancier aptX codec if you have certain Android phones, meaning improved sound quality.
The best feature? Each bud has an opposing magnet, so you can just snap them together around your neck like a necklace when you don't have them in your ear. That's perfect when you're on the run or at the gym.
Some caveats do apply here, though. They are popular and well-reviewed, but so many reviews on Amazon are less-than-legitimate that it's tough to know exactly how well these hold up. We've also not tested them, so we can't make any claims about performance. For the price, we think it's worth the risk, just keep Amazon's return policy in mind.
