With the advancement of wireless earbud technology in recent years, there are now (possibly) too many good options on the market. Iterative improvements have raised the bar for wireless earphones to “good” rather than “poor.” But how do you even begin to decide where to begin with so many options? That’s where we come in because we’ve done our research and found the best wireless earbuds for you.
Sony WF-1000XM4 Wireless Earbuds
In the realm of consumer electronics, it’s difficult to discover a genuinely perfect product, but Sony’s WF-1000XM4 wireless earbuds are as near as you can come. We reviewed the earbuds last year and found it difficult to find anything that could compete with their outstanding noise-cancellation, superior sound, long battery life, and other features. While they are on the more expensive side of the scale, they are well worth the money. That, in our opinion, is about as near perfection as it gets.
Jabra Elite 3 Wireless Earbuds
Jabra’s entire line of wireless earbuds is impressive, but the Elite 3 offers a lot for a small price. The Elite 3 manages to cram a lot of features (excellent sound quality, outstanding comfort, IP55 water, and dust protection rating, and more) into a set of earbuds that are well under $100 and frequently go on sale. While you won’t receive some of the features featured in higher-end versions, there’s much to be thrilled about here, including the money you’ll save by buying them.
Apple AirPods Pro Wireless Earbuds
We just re-reviewed Apple’s AirPods Pro, and while we expect a new version to hit stores later this year, this is still the best version to acquire if you’re an Apple fan. The AirPods Pro provides excellent noise cancellation, and excellent sound quality, and is remarkably simple to pair with any existing Apple device. If you have an iPhone, this is a no-brainer purchase.
Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 Wireless Earbuds
Samsung fans have the Galaxy Buds 2, which are similar to Apple’s wireless earbuds. The Galaxy Buds 2 stand out because of its shiny, bulb-like form that’s both light and pleasant enough to rest in your ears for lengthy periods of time. They’re available in four distinct colors to best suit your individual personality. They’ll filter out a lot of outside noise with active noise cancellation, so you can focus on what really important. Oh, and at just more than $100, they’re also not too expensive.
Razer Hammerhead Wireless Earbuds
The Hammerheads, Razer’s gaming wireless earbuds, includes a number of features that audiophiles will appreciate, including excellent sound quality and active noise cancellation. The low latency mode, for example, reduces response time, which is crucial for individuals who want to hear every sound possible in order to ensure they obtain an extra kill. But the best part is yet to come. Fully programmable Chroma RGB lighting that you may adjust to your preferences for a true gamer experience.
Ultimate Ears Fits Wireless Earbuds
The Ultimate Ears Fits are still the most comfortable earbuds we’ve ever tried, and we stand by that assertion. The UE Fits, you see, actually conform to the inside of your ear canal to create, well, an ultimate fit (heh) for your specific needs. One of the many things that pleased us about the UE Fits was their outstanding passive noise cancellation, which, combined with their great sound, was only one of the many things that impressed us about them. If you’re looking for a place where you can relax and unwind, look no further.
Master & Dynamic MW08 Wireless Earbuds
If you’re not familiar with Master & Dynamic, the two-part word simply means “excellent” in audio. The name has long been known as the audiophile’s consumer electronics brand, and the MW08 wireless earbuds do not disappoint. While it’s on the pricey side, you’ll receive superb ANC, a long battery life, and the best-sounding earbuds on the list. These are the best wireless earbud for you if you refuse to compromise on the sound quality of your music.
Jabra Elite Active 75t Wireless Earbuds
Workout earphones have a tough job to complete since they must do three things very well: sound amazing, fit comfortably, and survive the rigors of a workout. The Jabra Elite Active 75t meets all of these requirements with flying colors, making it the ideal wireless earbud for a workout, no matter what you’re doing to stay in shape. Oh, and as an added plus, they have ANC for those times when you really need to put your foot down and smash your personal best.
In The 2020 Man, our end-of-year product awards, we named these the best wireless earphones of the year. They’re still worth the money two years later.
Beats Powerbeats Pro Wireless Earbuds
Listen, with your wireless earbuds, sometimes you just want a little additional security. After all, if you’re not careful, they could fall out. Unless you have a set of wireless earphones like the Beats Powerbeats Pro. The over-ear hooks make it simple to make sure they’re properly hooked into your ears and won’t slip out. When you add in sweat resistance, nine hours of listening duration, and effortless pairing across Apple devices, you’ve got a fantastic alternative.
OnePlus Bud Pro Wireless Earbuds
The OnePlus Bud Pro wireless earbud has a lot to offer, even if you don’t have a OnePlus handset to use them to their full potential. They look, function, and sound a lot like Apple’s iconic wireless earbud, but at a much lower price than Apple’s signature earbuds.
