10 Dope Budget Wireless Headphones and Earphones Under 5K

So for our monthly financial projections… *neighbor’s dog starts barking*, *child passes by, running and screaming*, * insert other ungodly sounds here*

Familiar scenario during your online meetings? While you’re reading or maybe when you’re gaming with your friends? We feel you.

Not all of us have the luxury of an enclosed, quiet space and that’s why we curated 10 audio solutions under Php 5k for you that’ll help solve all that annoying background noise and since it’s 2020, we made sure they’re wireless and tangle-free too.

Check out our 10 affordable picks below:

TaoTronics SoundSurge 85 ANC Headphones

PHP  3,789

Boasting a 40H playback time, Active Noise Cancelling, and above-par sound quality at its price point, the SoundSurge 85 is definitely on top of our suggestion list. Check out JimsReviewRoom’s take on it. Definitely grab it here! 


PHP 4,399

The JBL LIVE400BT does not have noise canceling but it does have a smart function called Ambient Alert which makes it handy when you’re out and about commuting as a pedestrian or if you ride a bike or scooter. If you’re a big fan of the sound quality and build people have come to expect from the JBL, then get it here!

Awei A950BL

PHP 2,250


If your budget is around 2k, the A950BL’s aren’t a bad choice too. The band and the earpads are quite soft plus the sound quality isn’t that bad either. There’s noise-canceling onboard the headhpones but obviously it’s not to be as good as the ones on more expensive cans. Grab these budget cans here!


Mpow Official H7

Php 1,365


Personally, this is as low as I’d pay for over-ear headphones without fear of getting scammed, and if your budget permits you should get something better than the M7. That being said, these cans are pretty well built and have good sound quality considering the price. Buy the most affordable cans on the list here.


Mpow 2.4G Wireless Gaming Headset

PHP 2,594


If you’re looking for something to use for gaming, the MPOW Air is one the best “bang for the buck” wireless headsets you can get. No active noise cancellation though, but the fit is comfy, the mic is clear, and most importantly, it’s hella affordable.  Cop it here, and start your path in the wireless peripheral craze.

House of Marley Positive Vibration XL

Php 4,581


When you add these cans to your cart and eventually start using them, you’ll get what the product is named after. The Good Vibrations XL from House of Marley feature the wooden accents their products are known for as well as their signature sound.

Realme Buds Air

Php 3,990


Battery life aside, when talking about a good pair of TWS buds that don’t break the bank, the Buds Air will always be part of our recommendations. The low latency and environment noise canceling (ENC) make these great for gaming and for taking some calls. Get it here! 


HONOR CHOICE True Wireless Earbuds

PHP 1,799


For a pair of TWS earbuds, the HONOR CHOICE TWS hits a lot of checks on our list when it comes to similar products in its price point: great sound quality (the bass has oomf, if you go too loud though it becomes a bit over-bearing), easily fits in your pockets, and even a decent sounding mic for calls. Get it here! 

Check out our review here for a closer look at it.

Soundcore Liberty Air 2

Php 4,999


Diamond inspired drivers, 2 microphones for each bud, and a total of 28 hrs of play; simply put, the Liberty Air 2 from Soundcore is too good to pass on. Not to mention the equalizer is pretty user friendly too and allows you to customize the touch control. Grab it here.

Xiaomi Haylou GT1 Pro

PHP 899

And of course, the people’s champ, the Haylou GT1 Pro. It’s synonymous when the words “Budget TWS” are mentioned and rightfully so. The sound quality delivered by these buds are good considering the sub 1k price tag that you’ll be paying for them. Get it here! 

Sabbat E12

PHP 3,390



The E12’s are a good place to start if you’re looking to exit the budget segment for TWS buds. There is a noticeable difference in the jump of quality in terms of sound, comfort, and even design. Personally, I’m a big fan of the ceramic colorways, if you are too, grab them here!
