    I'm looking for a pair of wireless earbuds. I don't want totally wireless - I want something on a wire or whatever that will hang around my neck when I pull them our of my ears.

    I'm on a budget and I don't need great sound, as I'm basically listening to podcasts. I do want something that can give me a few hours of play time as some days I can be listening for quite a bit of time, and I'd like to be able to at least get through the day. I also want something that's comfortable, which means that the tips are not rigid plastic (like the Samsung earbuds I have - came with my Glalaxy S6). Also, that means fairly lightweight - I had a pair if JVC Gumy (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...cUvbUpU6496115) which have comfortable tips, but the soft rubber part kept coming off and the weight of the thing was not comfortable.

    I'm willing to pay more than that, but so far that's the best one I've had <= $50. Any suggestions in that price range?

    I bought these because I needed something waterproof to swim around with (and there are SLIM pickings when it comes to waterproof headphones, because BT 'dies' underwater, but anyway). I was pleasantly surprised by how good the sound is and the battery lasts forever. They're comfortable (to me) and easy to use. The best part? They're CHEAP. Still use them all the time with heavy splashes of water and they're still going.

    These look interesting. The over ear stuff doesn't bother you?

    Not the cheapest, but the Anker Wireless Soundcore Spirit X has a nice sound quality and great bass.

    I have a couple of older LG Tone Pro neckbuds, which are quite good (HB-750 and HB-770). I got them for about $20 each -- you can often find them refurbished on sites like Groupon Goods, Daily Steals, and others.
