With each day that passes Bluetooth headphones become more of a necessity than a luxury. Phone manufacturers are removing headphone jacks left and right, and no one wants to deal with the wires anymore, but not everyone wants to spend a ton on headphones. Luckily, you don't have to, and you can actually pick up some high-quality Bluetooth headphones for as little as $16.

The options include:

So, how do you decide between all of these? You can't go wrong with any of them, but there are a few differences here, so let's break it down.

First off, if battery life is what you're after, you'll want to go with either the iClever or Aukey offerings. Both of these have eight hours of playback per charge while the Anker ones have six. The Anker and Aukey headphones have magnetic buds, which means that when you aren't using them and have them around your neck, they will clasp together. This keeps them a bit more secure on you and prevents them from possibly falling off by accident.

All of the options are water resistant, making them perfect for working out or while tanning by the pool. Sound quality will be pretty similar on whichever pair you pick, though some may prefer the sound of one over the other. The Wirecutter names Aukey's Latitude headphones one of the best sets under $50.
