Despite their low price-point, Lypertek’s Z3 earbuds are a great option when choosing wireless earbuds even for folks who aren’t on a budget. For just under P4,800, you get clear, balanced audio with 70 hours of total battery life on the charging case—10 hours on the buds and six extra charges on the case.

Audio-Technica’s M series (ranging from the M20x to the M50x) has long been a go-to for audiophiles and sound professionals thanks to their neutral sound quality and comfortable wear. Note that these are studio headphones, meaning they’re typically meant for listening and recording, and not necessarily having a bass-heavy sound trip. If you’ve got a limited budget, go for the M30x model, which falls in the middle in terms of both specs and price point. They’re wired headphones that offer reliable sound and a comfortable over-ear fit. If you’re working in an audio-driven profession—voiceover work, podcasting, music critique, and the like—they’ll never let you down.
