4 true wireless earbuds under $40 worth buying
We have a list of the. But what if you want to pay as little as possible? Let’s say under $ 40 or less? Yes, there are more and more cheap real wireless earbuds, but only a few that are priced higher and surprisingly decent for the price. As I would like to say, you shouldn’t expect the world at this low price, but you can throw any of these wireless earphones in a gym bag (when the gyms are open again) and don’t feel broken if you lose them.
Here are my current dirt cheap True Wireless favorites, listed from lowest to highest price. I tried them all.
The Tranya Rimor started at $ 50, but has since dropped to $ 25.50. They have a decent sound, IPX5 waterproofness, which means that they are sweatproof and can withstand a sustained water jet. Your charging case is quite compact and is charged via USB-C. At 5 hours, the battery life is not fantastic, but the charging case offers you three additional charges.
At $ 26, they’re a bargain. For a few dollars more, you can buy the Tranya T3, which looks similar (many Tranya products look the same). I haven’t tried it, but it has high ratings on Amazon. According to Tranya, these have 10mm drivers, while the T3 has 6mm drivers. The Rimor has more bass, but the T3 appears to have better battery life. A new T10 model is coming soon.

While the Tribit Flybuds 3 don’t sound great (there’s a bit of boost, sometimes referred to as presence boost), they sound decent and provide a sufficient amount of bass as long as you get a tight seal (I had no problem). They are fairly discreet – about the size of the Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus – and have small wings similar to the Buds Plus that help you get a secure fit.
They’re also waterproof (IPX7 rating) and offer 5 hours of battery life on a single charge, which isn’t a great deal compared to some competing models. However, the case is equipped with a 2,600 mAh battery, which according to Tribit can charge the buds 20 times. The case can also charge your phone (it has a USB-C input for charging and a USB-A output for charging other devices). This larger battery makes the case a bit bulky and a little heavy, but the buds themselves are light. They have touch controls and are quite good for making voice calls.
To update: While the deal is running, you can get these earphones for $ 32 by clicking the coupon on the product page.

The Enacfire E60 is fairly straightforward in design, and the Enacfire logo on the case is a bit irritating. But like the similarly designed Earfun Free, it has both USB-C and wireless charging and is completely waterproof (IPX8 certification, meaning that it can be completely immersed in shallow water).
It delivers good sound for its modest price, with punchy bass and decent clarity. There is even aptX streaming for devices that support it, such as B. Samsung Galaxy phones. Don’t expect incredible sound – it is a bit uneven from track to track, sometimes sounds great and sometimes less good – but it also exceeded my expectations for the price. I also thought it was a good headset for calling. It offers good noise reduction and callers said I sound clear.
While it is listed on Amazon for $ 50, there is currently a 30% instant savings coupon that lowers the price to $ 35. Important note: You must make sure that you cut out the voucher before you check out. If this is not the case at the checkout, return to your shopping cart and look for the “Clip the Coupon” link to the right of the product.

Update: Enter the code EARFUNFR When checking out at Amazon, you will receive an additional 10% discount until August 31. These already have an instant coupon of 20%, so the price with the code is $ 34.
The most impressive thing about the EarFun Free is its features: Bluetooth 5.0, both USB-C and wireless charging, and it is fully waterproof (IPX7) according to the specifications. Is the audio flawless? No, but these Bluetooth earphones sound pretty good – it’s not just a sound coming from the Bluetooth earphone speaker. They don’t have the audio clarity of real high-end wireless earbuds that cost $ 150 a pair or more, but they do have plump bass and enough audio detail to make you think you’re concerned with the sound quality Your costs have come, and much more. The earphones are also pretty solid for making calls. The battery lasts for six hours at a moderate volume and the case offers four charging processes on the go.
