Budget Wireless Earbuds for Under £50 from the UK

Browsing tech in the modern world can be a minefield of distant companies with automated service and international shipping costs sneaking up on you. To find the best deals in any type of tech, especially true wireless earbuds, you should focus on finding a UK-based distributor so that you only cover the UK travel costs (If that!).

Wireless earbuds really kicked off with the craze over air pods, but like all brand-specific trends it wasn’t long before we started seeing knock-offs. The problem there is that, while they open the gates to Android users, the prices stay high since the original product has a high price.

This is where Daffodil being a UK retailer with a unique working relationship with independent tech developer and manufacturer August comes in. Both of our companies are UK-based and we offer wireless earbuds for budgets under £50 a pair! (The fact I have to state that’s for the pair, not a single earphone, is part of the problem we are humbly trying to solve!)

So, take a tour of the best budget wireless earbuds and get high-fidelity wireless audio in compact charging cases for less on Apple and Android alike.

How Do True Wireless Earbuds Work?

True Wireless Earbuds use Bluetooth connections to receive music and other audio wirelessly from phones, computers, tablets and even Bluetooth transmissions from adapters inside TV, MP3 players and more.

One core defining feature is that True Wireless Earbuds don’t just play audio wirelessly, but charge wirelessly too. This is achieved through a Charging Case. A wireless charging case can store energy for 3 or more charges of their respective earbuds. The earbuds slot in (usually magnetically) and are recharged with no need to connect to mains.

“True” wireless earbuds are called that because every part of using them can be done wirelessly, rather than losing downtime to charging or transferring files etc.

With all that in mind, a budget pair of earbuds has a few requirements -

  1. Fast Wireless Connection

  2. High-Capacity Wireless Charging Case

  3. Brand Ambivalence

August EP810 True Stereo Wireless Earbuds

First on the list are the August EP810 true wireless earbuds. These are Bluetooth 5.0 enabled and support full stereo reception for a truly immersive audio experience. Bluetooth 5.0 is the latest batch of Bluetooth chipsets and provides around double the speed / capacity of any Bluetooth 4.X version.

Usually, access to the cutting-edge in Bluetooth speeds might be what you assume pushes the cost of these types of earbuds up, but that simply isn’t true. Every pair of earphones on this list uses Bluetooth 5.0 despite remaining well under £50 a pair. This is the first way you can guarantee your wireless earphones are good quality despite a lower price. Specifications don’t lie.
