Best Bluetooth Headphones Under $200 For 2024

You might think that Bluetooth headphones are a more expensive market, but there are quite a few to choose from without breaking the bank. The market is dominated by heavy hitters like the Sony WH-1000XM5 and the Bowers & Wilkins PX7s2e, which are great choices but might be too costly for some who just want to enjoy good sound at a good price. There are a few great options that you can buy now for less than $200. These headphones will give you a ton of value for their respective prices and aren’t just cheap imitations of better headphones.

Strauss & Wagner ANCBT501 proves you don't have to pay crazy money for good sound.

Strauss & Wagner BT501

S&W is a favorite here at MajorHiFi, known for offering impressive sound at an affordable price. The BT501 is their only over-ear Bluetooth headphone, and it’s a strong choice for only $99. It features a good body of low-end that isn’t muddy, and its dominance never degrades resolution too much. You also get some admirable ANC that will get the job done in public spaces. Overall, this is one of the best choices you can make for wireless headphones for just under $100.

Final Audio UX3000

The Final Audio UX3000 offers a lot for its inexpensive price. In terms of sound, the UX3000 features a fairly wide soundstage that is kind of a staple for Final Audio in general. It’s impressive to hear over a pair of Bluetooth headphones at this price, complemented by its defined bass grooves and detailed treble. Along with its colorful sound, the UX3000 supplies you with multipoint Bluetooth and aptX LL which is hard to come by for $149. Noise-canceling is also one of its strengths, providing strong isolation for most environments.

Sony WH-CH720N

If you’re just aching for that Sony headphone experience without wanting to dish out the money for the XM5, then the WH-CH720N is a good alternative. when paired with the app, you’ll be able to access most of the features offered by the XM5, such as its industry-leading ANC with ambient sound control, and DSEE for better sound resolution. The sound signature leans in favor of the bass but responds very well with the in-app EQ. So, if you’re looking for a pair of headphones that you can control and personalize to your liking, then the CH720N might be your best bet for the price.

Sennheiser ACCENTUM 

One of the most recent additions to the budget over-ear Bluetooth catalog is the Sennheiser Accentum. With Sennheiser being a well-established name in the world of headphones, the Accentum becomes easy to recommend to music lovers who have a budget. For $179, the Accentum gives you impressive clarity in the bass and highs. There’s a good helping of thickness to its lows that help elevate the sound, with the upper-mids and highs giving better shape to the sound than most wireless headphones can give you in this range.


Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT2

Like Sennheiser, Audio-Technica is a well-established name, with the ATH-M50x being one of the most recognizable pairs of headphones across the board. It would be a no-brainer to recommend the Bluetooth version of those headphones, which accomplishes almost everything that makes the wired version great. Along with its classic sound, the M50xBT2 packs in a ton of extra features for $199. This is one of the only options on this list that is built with its own dedicated DAC, making it one of the most advanced options if you were to go wired with these headphones. In addition to that you get access to multipoint Bluetooth with LDAC support and fast pairing. This feels like the most premium option you can get for just under $200.
