Best Rated Wireless Headphones Under 100 Dollars

Updated on September 11, 2014

Finding the Best Value Listening Experience

I was given a pair of wireless headphones for my birthday a few months ago and now I wouldn't be without them. I use my headphones everyday, mainly to listen to the the radio but also to listen to music via my computer and occasionally for TV programs. I have a pair of Sony MDRRF985RK Wireless RF headphones, they're very good but I thought I'd research all headphones less than $100.

My Sony headphones are very easy to use, comfortable and generally provide a good sound. The battery life is excellent and their range enables me to use them all around the house and in the garden. The only criticism I have is that for quiet passages of music you sometimes notice a little interference and hiss. So although I love my Sony headphones, my quest was to find something even better!

Sennheiser RS120 - My choice

If I was buying headphones today for about $100 these would be my choice. Please refer the detailed video review below. They are well presented with a clear sound and very little interference of "hiss". Overall, very good value for money.

How to Rate Wireless Headphones

Sound Quality

The most obvious key factor is sound quality. In this price range (under $100) you cannot expect perfect sound quality but you should expect clear sound with a minimum of interference. The most common complaint about sound quality is "hiss" or interference. In many cases this irritating background noise can be minimized, if not totally eliminated, by using headphones correctly.

How to Adjust Controls to Reduce "Hiss"

The best way is to pump up the volume from the source device- this will give a strong signal- and you can then adjust the volume to your needs on the headphones.


Clearly you need the headphones to give a good signal over a reasonable distance. My headphones have a range of 100 meters, which seems to be standard. I do notice some degradation in quality at the upper limits of this range.


I seem to get at least 6 hours before I need to re-charge. It's simple to put the headphones on charge so it's not an issue for me.


This is very much a matter of personal preference. I like plenty of padding around the ears and the head. I find an absorbent, natural material more comfortable than plastic.
