Anker’s SoundBuds Slim blew away the competition to take the title of your favorite cheap Bluetooth earbuds, adding to Anker’s impressive number of Co-Op wins.

These ~$25 earbuds include seven-hour battery life, multiple bud sizes, a clever storage case, and are even magnetic. But don’t take my word for it, here’s what some of you had to say.

I am blown away by their fit and quality. They feel substantially built, with sturdy magnets that clasp the buds around your neck when not in use. Battery life has lasted me at least six hours on a charge (probably longer, they’ve never died on me) - callmeivan

For the money, these can’t be beat. I don’t like non-custom earbuds because they usually irritate my ears, but these guys are amazingly comfortable. Sound wise, they are a bit sibilant yet somehow avoid being annoying. Bass is there, but you really have to get a good seal for it to become apparent. I’ve bought some mid range buds, but these are the only non-custom or over-ear ones I have found will stay in my ear without causing me pain. - EchoGammut


Some other earbuds to note: Anker Soundbuds Curve and Mpow Cheetah both earned a significant amount of votes and have a design that commenters note may be better suited for runners.
