HWith the average sound-canceling headphones now selling for hundreds a pop, it's a challenge finding quality sound that's not super expensive. On our team, most of us always have headphones in, on, or around our ears, listening for the best sound money can buy. We've tried a bunch of products to find the best budget alternative to the BeatsX headphones for you.

If you're looking for a great budget pair of wireless earbuds, the Anker SoundBuds Slim offer a fantastic package for a fraction of the price of BeatsX. Out of all the headphones we tried, these were our favorite for sound quality and added features.

If you prefer a truly wireless experience instead, look into the Jabees Firefly for its comfortable fit and very cool look. These are small, compact, and well-designed. Whatever you choose, any one of these headphones will prove to be a great alternative to the BeatsX, and they'll save you some cash.
