We’ve already taken a look at the best earbuds under $50, and there were definitely some winners there, but now it’s time to kick it up a notch. Earbuds are by far the most portable form of headphones available, and for good reason. Even the best studio headphones money can buy can’t be wrapped into a ball small enough to be stuffed in your pocket.
There are plenty of other reasons to invest in a good pair of ‘buds as well. Maybe you find over-ears uncomfortable, or maybe you have great hair and don’t want over-ear headphones to mess it up (not the case with me). Whatever the reason, it’s probably time for you to stop using the cheap pair that came with your phone and pick up a pair that will give your music that extra layer of detail you’ve been missing out on. After all, isn’t that the goal?
There are a lot of headphones out there and though it’s impossible to make a list with all of them we did our homework, tried some out for ourselves, and made this list for the best earbuds under $100.

The market for in-ears is one of those that doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon. Name a company that dabbles in portable electronics and they most likely have a pair of earbuds on the market. With new companies arising everyday and phone manufacturers taking the included earbuds a little more seriously, we’re sure that this list won’t stay stagnant for very long.
That said we’ll keep it updated so you can feel confident that these are the best of the best whenever you happen to be reading this. If you have any suggestions let us know in the comments below and we’ll be sure to check them out. Happy listening.
