When more than 8,000 fans rave about $8 earbuds, we listen

What is it?

The search for great earbuds never ends, at least not as long as our washing machines continue to claim victims (rest in peace, Jabra Buds). So, we're happy to report that Beben Wireless Earbuds have a lot going for them right out of the box, starting with a sale price of just $8.

These little buds work for both iPhone and Android devices, have around 35 hours of playback time, and are available for less than public parking.

Why is this a good deal?

Beben Wireless buds have only been available since June, but the fact they've already garnered almost 11,000 reviews says a lot. They're down to just $8 — a 20% discount in total — although the lowest price on record is $1 less, at $6.99.

Why do I need these?

These earbuds share a lot of design similarities with AirPods. The case and earbud shape is similar, as are the feature list. One-click operation makes it easy to shift between various modes, answer and end calls, shift songs, and much more.

Beben promises zero audio lag during use, which makes these ideal for use when gaming. They weigh only 0.13 ounces, so you'll barely feel these in your pocket. Each bud holds a five-hour charge, while the case provides a total of 30 hours. Once depleted, they'll take around 1.5 hours to recharge — not bad, especially for someone on the go.

What reviewers say

"I have tiny ears and so it’s hard to find earbuds that fit. These fit great and they are adjustable to find a perfect fit. You just have to squeeze the ear part that goes behind the ear. You also get three different size earbuds covers for the perfect fit. I will be buying color, and I almost forgot to mention that they sound great," said one shopper.

"All I can say is: You need to get these headphones! The quality in the design, fit and sound is impressive, " raved another fan. "I am always looking for the *perfect* pair of headphones that fit in my ears well, aren’t heavy, and don’t fall out after considerable wear throughout a day. I do a lot of talking throughout the day for work as well as use them for yard work on the weekends. Every pair of headphones I seem to purchase only fits well for a short period of time and ends up falling out after talking for only 30 minutes. Enter the Beben X8 headphones!"

One five-star reviewer reported, "The only downside to the product is that it charges through the old micro USB cord and not the latest android cord. But it’s definitely worth the money."

With on-device controls, you can pause and play songs without reaching for your phone.
