Best Buy is slashing prices on Sony earbuds for a limited time

When it comes to earbuds, many of us end up going with quantity over quality. It just seems easier to cycle through two to three cheap headphones a month than to actually fork over the extra cash for something nicer — but is it really any cheaper to go cheaper? Higher-quality earbuds may cost more than $10, but with that extra cost, you’re not only buying better sound quality, you’re buying a longer life span.

If your music sounds like it’s being sent through a tin can from 30 feet away before it reaches your ears, it’s probably time to think about upgrading. There are a lot of really expensive earbuds out there, but if you want to avoid spending more than $50, Best Buy is having a sale on Sony headphones that may be perfect for you.
