Buying Guide: The Best Bluetooth Headphones For Every Budget

by Abheer Monga April 25, 2016 3 min read


Bluetooth headphones have been created for convenience and portability. Instead of lugging large headphones with long winded cables around, you can get yourself a wireless headset and use it with your Bluetooth-enabled devices while on the go. 

And with wireless headphones dominating the market, the launch of AptX HD for higher-res music and the launch of the iPhone 7 with no 3.5mm jack, there's no better time to jump onto the bandwagon. 

In no particular order, here are the best wireless options to choose from.

1. Great Product with a Great Cause: LSTN Troubadour Wireless
