wireless earbud headphone thingies... educate me please

i usually prefer wired headphones but lately i find them cumbersome with some new activities i've been engaging in, namely spinning machinery. cumbersome and dangerous.

anyway, i'm a cheapass and have some low level hearing loss so i don't need the super bestest audio dork model i need

-under $50, u nder $30 better
-easy to pair with android
-also works as microphone for talky talky on the computer phone
-~5 hour battery life min
-noise canceling would be nice, not mandatory

my earholes tend to be a little small from what i've seen and the hard molded plastic earbuds i've used are universally painful so the apple earbud nockoffs are out.

amazon has literally kabillions of these, probably all internally the same wrapped in different packages.

these look possibly good

I’ve lost too many earphones with wires over the years, I’d probably lose these things even faster.... I’d have to get big ear covering model.

I'm gonna totally ignore your price constraints and strongly recommend the Jaybirds. I have a pair of X4s and they're the balls. True 8 hour performance, killer fit, bullet/waterproof and fantastic sound that's totally customizable to your tastes with the EQ in the app.

Jaybird X4

While price is an issue I’ll throw in AirPods. They’re amazing. Changes the way you use your phone and interact with music/Siri.

My experience is that if you buy one of these devices for under $30, you might as well buy it at the dollar store for all of the value you'll get.

Still, it’s bluetooth, which is a limitation in itself...

head gets too hot with the over ear, and the band thing over my balding head pisses me off.

Iíll second Climber. Crappy BT is worse then no BT. Cutting in and out, losing sync, digital decay being heard. Itís super frustrating because you bought something hands free and now itís the focus because it doesnít work.

I know youíre against AirPods but have you tried them?

+1 for Airpods but dude says "pair with android." I would assume he doesn't have iPhone.

Airpods can pair with Android devices.
