With headphones jacks slowly being phased out, going wireless is one of the many reasons you might end up choosing a wireless headphone. However, some of the top brands can cost you more than you’re willing to let go. I held off on getting a wireless headphones for that very reason. That’s until I came across the Groove ONN Wireless Earphones for $10.00. With such a low price you might feel skeptical or may not expect much. In this review, I’ll be going over some of the features and giving you my hands-on experience to help you decide if it’s right for you.


What’s included:

  • 1 Pair wireless earphones
  • 1 Charging cable 9.8 in (28 cm)
  • 2 Sizes of silicone ear tips
  • 2 Sizes Ear fins
  • 1 Quick Start Guide

Easy setup

The setup process is fairly easy once you follow the instructions on the quick start guide. Three buttons located on the side control basic music and call functions. You can start the pairing process straight out of the box since this device comes precharged.

Design and quality

Despite being one of the cheapest wireless phones on the market the build quality tells a different story. None of the parts feels like it’s going to pop off or need replacing anytime soon. Even so, you get a few extra ear tips in the package. Its design is a little different than your standard wireless earphones. Similar to Beats FLEX, both speakers are attached by a Tangle-free cord. While this design may not be for everyone I found a few advantages to it.



Even with rigorous movement, these special ear fins do a pretty good at securing the earphones in place.

Corded design

The cord sits across the back of the neck while providing a perfect backup in case one of the earphones were to accidents fall out. These two features alone make it nearly impossible to lose, unlike your standard true wireless buds.

Magnetized surface

Another feature worth mentioning is the magnetized surface at the opposite end of the earphones. When the earphones are not in use you can simply snap both together across your chest. The magnetization seems a little weak at times, but it is better than having both speakers dangling freely.

Battery life

With a battery life last for 7 hours, you can easily jam out to your favorite tunes for an extended period. An audio message warns you when the battery starts to get low so you don’t forget to recharge. Charging time takes about 2 hours, which is barely noticeable if you plan it just right.

Sound quality

The sound quality was what surprised me the most with the ONN Earphones. I couldn’t tell the difference between these and the corded earphones that came with my iPhone. Keep in mind these are a $10.00 pair of headphones so don’t expect AirPod or Galaxy Buds quality.


Issues with Apple pencil and iPad

Despite many of the obvious good things about these earphones, they are a few drawbacks. One, in particular, will affect iPad Pro users who may want to use these while drawing. The sound becomes broken while using an Apple Pencil. This incompatibility may be enough to turn off most digital artists, nevertheless, keep in mind this particular issue may be exclusive to iPad Pro 12.9 1st gens.

Off-balance and bulky cord

When running or doing other activities the cord tends to feel a little off-balance at times because of the button controls located on one end of the cords. This sporadic rubbing against the side of the neck can become annoying, especially when trying to concentrate.


This budget wireless earphone surpassed my expectation considering the price. Is it comparable with something like an AirPod or Beats FLEX? The short answer is NO. Nonetheless, it is worth getting if you wanna try out wireless before making a larger financial purchase. The ONN also comes in an assortment of vibrant colors or plain black if you prefer keeping things simple.
