4 true wireless earbuds under $40 worth buying
We have a list. But what if you want to pay as little as possible? Say, under $ 40 or so? Yes, there are a growing number of cheap wireless earbuds out there, but only a few that stand up for the cut and are surprisingly decent for the price. As I want to say, you shouldn’t expect the world at this low price, but you can throw any of these wireless earbuds into a gym bag (when gyms reopen) and if you lose them for heart Do not feel broken.
Here are my current dirt-cheap true-wireless favorites, listed at the lowest to highest prices. I have tried them all.
Tranya Remor started at $ 50 but has since sunk to $ 25.50. They have decent sound, an IPX5 water-resistant rating, which means they are sweaty and can withstand a continuous spray of water, and their charging case is quite compact and charging via USB-C is. Battery life at 5 hours is not great, but the charging case gives you three additional charges.
At $ 26, they are a bargain. For a few bucks more, you can get the Tranya T3, which looks similar (a lot of Trania’s products look the same). I haven’t tried it, but it has a high rating on Amazon. Tranya says that they have 10 mm drivers while the T3 has 6 mm drivers. The Rymor has more bass but the T3 clearly has better battery life. A new T10 model is coming soon.

While Tribute Flybuds 3 is not a stellar sound (it has a slight treble push, sometimes referred to as a boost of appearance), they do sound good and feature a substantial amount of bass , As long as you get a tight seal (I had it) no problem). They are very discreet – about the same size as Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Plus – and are equipped with smaller wings similar to the Buds Plus that help you get a secure fit.
They are also waterproof (IPX7 rating) and offer a battery life of 5 hours on one charge, which is not good compared to some competing models. However, the case is equipped with a 2,600 mAh battery that can charge the buds 20 times according to the Tribit. Additionally, the case can also charge your phone (it has a USB-C input for recharging and a USB-A-out port for charging other devices). This large battery makes the case a little heavier and somewhat heavier, but the buds themselves are lighter. They have touch controls to make voice calls and function appropriately.
Update: When the deal expires, you can get these earbuds for $ 32 by clicking on the coupon on the product page.

The Enacfire E60 is a very low frills case from a design standpoint and the Enacfire logo on the case is a bit annoying. But like the similarly designed earfun free, it has both USB-C and wireless charging and is completely waterproof (IPX8 certification, which means it can be completely submerged in shallow water).
It delivers good sound for its modest price, with punchy bass and decent clarity. It even has aptax streaming for devices that support it, such as Samsung’s Galaxy phones. Don’t expect incredible sound – it’s a little uneven from track to track, sometimes sounding great and other times less good – but again, for the price, it exceeded my expectations. I also felt that it performed well as a headset for making calls. It offered good noise reduction, and the callers said that I sounded clear.
While it lists for $ 50 on Amazon, there is currently a 30% instant savings coupon that brings the price up to $ 35. Important note: You must clip the coupon before checking out. If this does not apply at checkout, go back to your cart and look for the “Clip the Clip” link on the right side of the product.

Update: enter code EARFUNFR Check out on Amazon for an additional 10% off from August 31. These already have a 20% off instant coupon, so the price with the code is $ 34.
The most impressive thing about the earfan free is its features: Bluetooth 5.0, both USB-C and wireless charging, and is completely waterproof (IPX7), according to the specs. Is audio ancient? No, but these Bluetooth earbuds sound great – it’s not a noise coming from a Bluetooth earbud speaker. They don’t have the audio clarity of high-end true wireless earbuds that cost $ 150 a pair or more, but they have plump bass and enough audio detail to make you feel like you’re worth your money with sound quality. Found, and then some. Earbuds are also quite solid to call. The battery lasts six hours at a moderate volume level, and the case offers four charges while running.
