Every wrestler knows that a good pair of headphones is essential to the long days hanging out in the gym. Having the right tunes in your ears right before your match can get you totally pumped up to get out there and take out your opponent. Not everyone has the budget to pick up the high end headphones. Just because your budget is tight doesn’t mean you deserve crappy sound pumping into your ears! Here is my top five picks for the best quality earbuds for a budget price!
#5 – Sony EX series Earbuds
Have you ever wondered if those 10 dollar earbuds were actually worth it? Well, the Sony EX series earbuds will be sure to please you. These earbuds can be found at a local Target, and Walmart for in some cases, under fifteen U.S. dollars. These earbuds come with silicone tips with three sizes and are shaped well to fit in your ears.The build quality is ok considering that they are fifteen dollars but the sound quality is better than most at this price.
If your budget is a little higher than fifteen dollars, these earbuds will be a great option for you. These earbuds run for Twenty-five dollars on the Symphonized website, and Amazon.These earbuds will have better sound quality than any other at twenty-five dollars. The build quality is excellent on this pair of earbuds as they are built from real genuine wood with metallic backings. These are not wireless but include a braided cable to avoid most minor tangles. This earbud also comes with a pouch so you can throw them into your bag when its your turn on the mat.
These, don’t get me wrong, these are a really sweet looking pair of earbuds. These earbuds have decent sound quality and have an angled 3.5mm jack to fit all iPhones up to the iPhone 6s plus, most androids, and all iPods, and iPads. If you own a thick case, this has a small chance of falling out but if you don’t want to spend that kind of money on it, maybe #2 will be better off for you.
First off, the design on these earbuds is what most earbuds are missing, a curve shaped earbud. The earbuds that have this fit in your ears much better than the ones that do not have this cool feature. This is essential when you are warming up for a match or running through your drills. Nobody wants their headphones constantly falling out. These earbuds, much like the Sennheiser CX 3.0’s have an L shaped jack. In some cases, the wire inside the jack breaks which means you can say goodbye to your earbuds. With proper care, the earbuds should last you 10 – 12 months.
#1 – UrBeats
Ok these earbuds are really at the top end of a “budget” list but there is no possible way that there can be a list of top 5 earbuds without Beats. Beats have evolved a lot in sound quality and style. One of the most recent ones, UrBeats did just that. These earbuds first of all look amazing with multiple different colors to suit your needs. The build quality is great on these as they’re made out of a hard metallic material and includes a flat cable. If your looking for a relatively good non-wireless earbud, these by far, are going to get you exactly what your looking for!
