If you’re looking for comfortable over-the-ear headphones under the $100 mark, there are many models from trusted brands to choose from. Some wireless Bluetooth over-ear headphones are reliable and have excellent quality despite the low price point, and they may feature built-in microphones for hands-free recording or calling. Many over-ear headphones have adjustable bands and generously sized ear cups to allow for several hours of comfortable listening. Some may be foldable or may even come with a carrying case or bag for safe transport. Sound quality varies, but many over-the-ear headphones under $100 have great range and can handle low bass or crisp treble tones.
