    For that price the battery life is going to be crummy. I got my girlfriend a set of Monster headphones for Christmas in 2016. They last her a whole school day and were only about $85CAD (so probably $50-$60USD). I think they're Monster Clarity. Great sound and great battery!

    @CJR238 i picked up these Anker SoundBuds Surge headphones for the gym based on a friends recommendation and have been very happy with them. Battery is great, sound is good, noise isolation is good and at $25 on Amazon you can’t go wrong.

    The kids got me the new Bose SoundSports for Christmas and love these. The sound is amazing, sweat proof and very comfortable but are $130 on sale at BestBuy.

    Does it have to be ear buds? I picked up a pair of the ghost Tek over the ear headphones. I think it was about $70. Fantastic enough sound! Supposed to be 18 hours of actual battery life. I just used it for my fifth workout and the battery is still on its first charge. Workouts last an hour to hour fifteen mins.

    I bought these for my son a while ago, the charge seems to least an exceptionally long time.

    The only headphones I have seen that last longer are my JBL over the ear ones. They last almost 20 hours. The Clarity headphones are great for cheap

    Or you could get good headphones and just get a transmitter.

    I kept my original headphones. It supports BT v4.1 and gives about 11 hours of playback and charges via USB.

    BT earbuds were not very good when I tried them but that was pre Apple's versions. My daughter bought herself the Beats BT earphones and they sound great but they're rediciulously expensive, way out of my price range. However I got the Phillips BT earphones from Target for $50 and have been really happy with them.

    I'm personally not a fan of earbuds, but they are small and simple for my daughter.


    I may go with the Anker.... I have a few of there battery banks and they are awesome.

    Awesome thread. I have been looking for a pair to ski with but wireless tech isn't a strong suit of mine.
