By Louis DeNicola, Cheapism.com
Need a last-minute stocking stuffer? A pair of inexpensive headphones may be just the ticket. Although audiophiles will want something more powerful, most people are happy with a basic pair that keeps the music flowing. Earphones make the perfect companion on a run or at the gym, and it's always great to have an extra pair just in case.

Cheapism.com has found four well-rated headphones available for less than $15. Three out of four are earbud-style in-ear headphones, which are lightweight and can easily be slipped into a pocket or bag, making them ideal for a smartphone or MP3 player. They also may help prevent outside noise from creeping in. One potential downside: The tips or pads that fit on the buds may fall off and get lost at some point. Extras are included with the earphones and come in different sizes to fit most anybody's ears.

The other recommended budget option is a pair of on-ear headphones. As the name implies, they sit on top of the ear rather than in it or around it. Some users prefer this design and find it more comfortable than earbuds.
