Your MOST USED headphones/earphones/earbuds

I don’t ever wear headphones or ear buds unless I’m on an airplane. Hate having things in/on my ears.

On airplanes, any over the ear headphones that don’t touch my ears are fine.

Bought these cheapies for $520.

TWS i12 5.0, 3 hour battery, recharge 4 times. Not great sound but good enough for simple listening. Edit: They automatically pair with iPhone, iPad, etc. like AirPods.

Mostly used in sauna 80C and hot tub. No worries about damaging them because so cheap.

Wow those look crazy similar to regular airpods.

JVC cheap earbuds, in ear, connect to my device with a wire. Model HAFX7MB.

The wire is a hassle, but sound quality is excellent for $8.99 USD. I find that (1) sound quality quite good, and (2) for phone calls others can hear my voice clearly (probably because mic is closer to mouth).

And they’re cheap! I buy 3 or 4 at a time so I always have extras.

The way others hear my voice on phone is of primary importance to me. I can’t have professional / business / client calls where my voice sounds muffled or distant. So although this is not the question asked, I added the phone call criteria because it’s so important to me, and because I want to listen to good music when I’m not on a call.

So looking at headphones with excellent audio quality for both music and phone … the choices get very expensive and not always as good as a connection with a wire. And I always break shit or lose stuff. So for $8.99 I buy a bunch of these and I’m happy.

Edit: after writing this I received a gift of SOUNDPEATS Truefree2 in-ear Bluetooth wireless earbuds. Sound quality is good! These are inexpensive but work well. I guess that I prefer in-ear rubber earbuds.

Reviews say that call quality/microphone stinks. But these are about $30 or $40, so if I want it all I guess I’m going to spend money, or have a wire connecting me to my device.
