Updated on March 14, 2018

I dabble in everything (but am great at nothing) and love to write about whatever is running through my mind at any given time.

AUKEY, a wholly Chinese company, offers a set of Bluetooth wireless earbuds with built-in remote and microphone for iPhone. The current price for these earbuds on Amazon is knocked down to $19.99 (from an original $29.99), which is a pretty low price in comparison to other manufacturers. This immediately tells you something about the product.

Reasonably good audio
The feel is somewhat lacking (a very ‘plastic’ feel).
The main point with these headphones is they will do for you what you expect at their price.
Bluetooth connectivity to any Bluetooth-enabled device
Bluetooth range is not as accommodating as some of the competition.
Good for the gym, or any place where great sound quality is unnecessary.
Reasonable price
Likely cheap manufacturing
Adequate for non-audiophiles
AUKEY Bluetooth wireless earbuds pros and cons

A Basic Breakdown of the Aukey Bluetooth, Wireless Earbud Features

  • Connectivity

    Connects to any Bluetooth-enabled device. Use them with your iPhone, iPad, TV . . . you name it.
  • Microphone

    The microphone can be used for talk-time when paired with your smartphone. The audio quality can be a little suspect and other online reviewers have noted similar results. Again, you’re only paying $20, so top-of-the-line quality is not to be expected.
  • Controls on earbud

    Power, volume, and Bluetooth pairing are all on one earbud. Be warned that you might find yourself fat-fingering these controls and hitting the wrong thing, especially if active.

  • MicroUSB charging cable

    The charging cable is included but a power adapter is not, so you’ll have to use one lying around your house. The Lithium-ion battery life is decent considering the small mAh battery installed: 7 hours of talk time and over a week of standby time.
  • Three sets of earbuds are included for varying ear sizes.

    It might take some adjustments to find your fit. My ears are small (well, just the canal) and I typically have a hard time finding an ear bud outside of Apple that will fit. Luckily the small sized set fit relatively well and didn't move around too much once I found the right seating.

The main point with these headphones is they will do for you what you expect at their price. If you are just looking for something to listen to while pumping iron at the gym or while sitting in bed as to not disturb your spouse, then they’ll do the trick. Especially if you don’t plan on making it a daily routine. If you are an audiophile . . . you know, the type of person that can actually hear the differences in produced music, then you won’t much care for these . . . but you probably wouldn’t be looking to spend only $20 on earbuds, anyway.

Either way, if you want to have a wireless headset and don't feel like shelling out too much cash, buy a pair of these on Amazon while the price is still knocked down.
