Starting our list off strong are the Jabra Elite 25h wireless headphones, a perfect option for the budget-savvy audiophile. They aren’t overloaded with features but are equipped with all the necessary essentials to ensure that their sound quality doesn’t disappoint. The on-ear earpads are incredibly comfortable and soft to the touch, making those long listening sessions fly by without your ears getting sore. All the controls are also available directly on the earcups for easy accessibility that won’t require you to jump through hoops just to skip to the next track. In terms of battery life, the Jabra Elite 25h can last at most a good 14 hours of non-stop usage when wireless, and up to 288 hours when not in use. If you’d prefer to use them wired, they come with a very long 4-foot cable that allows you to position yourself however you like without feeling constricted.
While they don’t have noise-canceling capabilities like the other options on our list either, there isn’t anything else stopping you from enjoying great audio output at a fraction of the price of other headphones of a similar caliber. The Jabra Elite 25h wireless headphones also have a microphone for any voice calls you need to take. A worthy contender, especially if you’re on a strict $100 budget, you can find them on Best Buy where they’re on sale for only $90, down from their original retail price of $100.

As expected of an Apple-owned manufacturer, the Solo 3 have impeccable sound quality for the price, featuring award-winning sound that no music lover worth their salt can do without. Though the Solo 3 don’t have active noise cancellation capabilities, the audio output should be more than enough to cover up any ambient noise. These headphones are also packing an Apple W1 chip under the hood for lightning-quick connectivity to any compatible device, similar to how the AirPods are usable straight out of the box, with virtually no weak signals or random hiccups to hamper your listening — all of this in a wonderfully stylish design that looks good with just about any outfit of the day.
What’s more, the Beats Solo 3 also have a crazy amount of battery capacity, easily doubling that of even the most advanced headphones on our list with their own 40-hour lifespan, allowing you to enjoy their astounding musical output for nearly two whole days non-stop. If you ever find yourself caught without battery, these headphones can juice up for another three hours with a quick five-minute charge.

If you want a good pair of wireless headphones that can last for days without charging, the Beats Solo 3 are what you need. You can find them on Amazon where they’re on sale for $159 from $200.

Although dethroned by Bose’s most recent pair of headphone technology, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II wireless headphones still match today’s standards even at a few years old. In fact, they’re still fully capable of outdoing most offerings coming out even today. They not only feature an over-the-ear design to eliminate any soreness, but they also have extraordinarily comfortable earpads to make listening as painless as possible. This bleeds into and complements the QC35 II’s active noise cancellation to provide a pure listening experience, with three different levels to boot. This way, you have full control over how much ambient noise gets in at any given time. All the controls are also available directly on the earcups themselves, giving you easy access to all your playback, volume, and noise-canceling options.
Another great aspect of the QuietComfort 35 II is their built-in Alexa compatibility. With Alexa at your every beck and call, you can you enjoy the power of voice-automated convenience, and all you have to do to rile her up is press the button at the back of your earcup. If you’d prefer to stick to more traditional methods, you can also download the Bose Connect app on your phone. The app allows you to control everything about your headphones, like how much noise it rejects, what Bluetooth devices it connects to, and even how many devices it should play on simultaneously. If you need to take a call, the QC35 II headphones come with their own dual-microphone array for clear vocals on your end without any of the environmental fuzz. Lastly, it has a decent battery life of 20 hours. An oldie but a goodie, the Bose QuietComfort 35 II are definitely just as great as they were in their heyday, and they could be yours for as low as $299 on Amazon, down from their retail price of $349.
