We’ve all had the experience of frantically untangling a knot of wires just to be able to take a call with a pair of headphones. Wireless headphones are life-changing — and on everyone’s must-have list. But many of the big-brand models can be quite expensive — often more than $100 — mostly because of high-end features you might not necessarily need.

If what you want is a reliable, comfortable pair of wireless headphones without the bells and whistles, we’ve got a great deal for you: iJoy Wireless Headphones are on sale right now at Amazon, down from the already low price of $30 to a mere $17 (black) to $20 (other colors). According to more than 32,000 (!) Amazon reviewers, these headphones deliver excellent audio and then some. The jaw-dropping price makes this purchase a no-brainer.

If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. And if you're not yet a member, that's no problem. You can sign up for a free 30-day trial here. (By the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)

With comfortable ear cups, a foldable design and a matte finish, these headphones are a great mix of practicality and style. The built-in microphone allows you to answer calls from your phone. Charging is fast and strong. And there are physical controls for the usual functions: play, pause, track and volume. 

Of course, the most important aspect of any pair of headphones is sound quality; the iJoy is a winner in this department. “I listen to music when I clean, and the sound is crisp, loud and clear!” wrote one five-star reviewer. “I dusted my whole house, washed clothes, cleaned bathrooms all on one 15-minute charge!” She also liked the feel of the ear cups: “I’m in love and they are so comfortable. I dislike anything in my ears, so these are perfect!”

Another reviewer agreed: “I actually was very surprised by these. These are my first wireless headphones. I paired them with my iPhone 8 Plus, no issues. For the price you can’t ask for more. They are quite bass-y but in a good way. Clear sound. They are also really lightweight and feel comfortable on the ears….!”

All colors are marked down at Amazon. The black is just $18, and all others are $20. Stock up for gifts!

These iJoy rechargeable headphones also have a built-in radio receiver. A mode switch takes them from Bluetooth to FM radio. A reviewer wrote she was “pleasantly surprised by that and happy to be able to listen to the Twins games on the radio.”

These headphones also stand the test of time. One happy reviewer who has used them for 19 months says, “Nobody is going to believe me, but I actually have a pair of Beats Monster headphones and I like the iJoy better. They don’t squeeze my head or smash my ears so viciously, and the sound is quite comparable.” Other reviewers commented on the comfortable fit as well.

And many folks talked about utilizing their iJoys not just for pleasure, but also for business. Says one such reviewer: “I work in customer service in the chat department and let me tell you, these bad boys have saved my life. I have a hard time with the headphones that you put in your ears; they always fall out, so when I found these headphones, I was excited….”

With the holidays approaching, why not grab a couple as gifts? One reviewer says that's her plan: “I’m ordering my husband, sons and daughter some!” You can't find a more impressive, exciting present for the price. Get them while they last.
