Ready to ditch the cable and go all-in with some true wireless earbuds?
If there was ever a time to buy wireless earbuds, it’s now!
The features they come with are fantastic, like active noise canceling and voice assistants.
What’s the difference between ‘True Wireless’ and ‘Regular Wireless’ earbuds?
True wireless earbuds have separate pieces for each ear, without a wire connecting the two. They would normally use low energy bluetooth to connect to one another.
Whereas regular wireless earbuds might still have a wire connecting the left and right together, so they can communicate with one another.
The 10 Best True Wireless Earbuds
These are the 10 best true wireless earbuds:
10. Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0
The Beoplay E8 2.0’s, from Bang & Olufsen, are a good balance of value for the money, considering their recent price drop and specification.
Tuned by Bang & Olufsen sound engineers, their elegant design, coupled with their soft foam and silicone construction, allows for a stylish, comfortable pair of earbuds that you can wear for long periods.
This means that you’ll be able to take advantage of the 16 hours of playtime you get from an initial four-hour charge.
The earbuds produce a rich, authentic sound and come equipped with Bang & Olufsen’s “Tone Touch” technology.
This allows you to quickly change tracks, take calls, and activate voice controls from a simple touch of your earbuds.
And, the advanced Bluetooth 4.2 technology ensures a fast connection between your paired devices.
You’ll get four extra ear tips, and a leather and brushed aluminum charging case included in the box. And, they’re compatible with both Android and iOS.
9. Cambridge Audio Melomania 1
For $126, you can’t go wrong with a pair of these wireless earbuds from Cambridge Audio.
The Melomania 1s come equipped with 45 hours of battery life – 9 hours playback and 36 hours in the charging case, Bluetooth 5.0, voice assistant, and exceptional sound quality.
Connect them with Siri or Google Assistant, and you’ll be able to play/pause songs and control the volume or skip tracks.
They’re also IPX5 water-resistant, meaning you don’t have to worry about getting caught in a freak downpour, or sweating in the gym.
As mentioned, the Melomania 1 earbuds come with Bluetooth 5.0, which allows you to connect to all your devices from up to 30 meters away, without worrying about a drop in signal.
You won’t get a fancy leather case or any extra ear tips with these. But, you’ll receive some reliable wireless earbuds for a fair price.
8. Lypertek Tevi
The Lypertek Tevi wireless earbuds are the cheapest earbuds on our list.
For $89, you’ll get a pair of true wireless earbuds with Bluetooth 5.0 and up to 70 hours of listening time.
Professional acoustic audio engineers tuned the earbuds, and they’re IPX7 water-resistant. They’re also noise-canceling, and provide a clean, balanced sound with good bass.
The Lypertek Tevi wireless earbuds come with four different sized earbuds, a charging case, and a USB Type-C cable.
The audio isn’t the best, but they’re good value. And, the USB Type-C capability, and cable, are a nice touch.
7. Apple AirPods (2nd Generation)
If you’re already part of the Apple ecosystem, then it might make sense to go with earbuds from the same brand.
But, if you’re not willing to pay for the premium Apple AirPod Pros (coming up later), then a pair of second-generation AirPods should do the trick.
For $199, you’ll get a pair of wireless earbuds and a wireless charging case.
The case will give you up to 24 hours of listening time. And, pairing the AirPods with your Apple device is lighting fast.
This Generation comes with the new H1 headphone chip, giving you improved connectivity and battery life. It also allows you to use Apple’s voice assistant, Siri.
They’re by no means cheap. But, their simple design and “reasonable” sound quality, make the AirPods an excellent choice for Apple users.
Still, you might want to consider another pair of wireless earbuds if you’re not already invested in the Apple ecosystem.
6. Sony WF-1000XM3
Sonys WF-1000XM3 wireless earbuds are a bit on the pricey side. However, you do get a lot for your money.
The 24bit Audio signal processor gives you noticeably enhanced sound quality. Battery life is around 24 hours using the quick charge case, and you’ll get some of the best digital noise-canceling wireless earbuds on the market.
You can use the voice control assistant to access your music and information, and take phone calls using handsfree with a push of a button.
Included in the box are two sets of ear tips, the charging case, documentation, and a USB Type-C cable.
They’re some of the nicest looking earbuds on the market, so, if the design is crucial to you, these could be a good bet.
5. Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2
The Momentum True Wireless 2 earbuds from Sennheiser are some of the nicest looking earbuds on the market.
$299 is a lot of money for something that can be easily lost or broken.
Well, with that being said, they sound incredible, the noise canceling is excellent, and they’re a great alternative to the AirPod 2s or the WF-1000XM3s.
Add 28 hours of battery life, and customizable touchpad technology and these bad boys start shaping up.
If noise cancellation is a significant factor for you, then the True Wireless 2s won’t let you down.
But, you’ve got to be willing to part with $299 to buy a pair.
4. Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus
The Galaxy Buds Plus from Samsung is another great looking pair of earbuds.
Right off the bat, you’ll get 22 hours of battery life, active noise cancelation (ANC), and a wireless charging case.
They’re compatible with both Android and iOS. And you can expect them to deliver satisfying bass tones with crisp high notes.
The audio quality on calls could do with some work, but apart from that, the Galaxy Buds Plus are an excellent all-round pair of truly wireless earbuds.
They also come in a variety of colorways, too, such as Black, Purple, White, Red, & Cloud Blue.
The Galaxy Buds Plus are good value and will get the job done.
3. Beats Powerbeats Pro
The third best pair of true wireless earbuds are the Beats Powerbeats Pro.
The Powerbeats Pro earbuds feature secure-fit ear hooks, designed for comfort and stability.
So if you’re looking for the most secure pair of wireless earbuds for working out, that won’t keep falling out, then these could be a safe bet.
They feature Apple’s H1 headphone chip, 9 hours of listening time, volume and track controls on each earbud, and sweat and water-resistance.
The Powerbeats Pro have balanced sound with excellent dynamic range and noise isolation and come purchased in a variety of colorways.
In the box, you’ll get the earbuds, charging case, four sizes of ear tips, a lightning to USB-A charging cable, and a quick start guide.
2. Apple AirPods Pro
If you’re after the best that money can get when it comes to Apple’s wireless earbuds, then the AirPod Pros are the ones you want.
For an extra $50, compared to the AirPods second generation, you’ll get a water-resistant design, active noise cancelation, a wireless charging case, and a range of handy commands.
You can easily switch between the active noise cancelation mode (ANC) and Transparency mode, and they have excellent sound quality.
The battery life could do with some work, as you get a maximum of 24 hours, but they do come with an extra three pairs of ear tips to ensure you get a perfect fit.
Overall, they’re probably the best true wireless earbuds for Apple users, but not all round. So they fall just short of first place.
1. Jabra Elite Active 75T
The best true wireless earbuds are Jabra’s latest release, the Elite Active 75Ts.
There’s no question that they’re some of the best-looking buds on the market. But, it’s not all about looks.
They’re also IP57 certified, making them waterproof and resistant to dust and sweat.
Their passive noise cancelation is pretty good – albeit, not as good as the AirPods Pro, but still.
Listening to music on the 75T’s is crisp and clear.
You can tweak the built-in EQ, or choose from several presets to achieve a custom audio experience.
They provide up to 7.5 hours of run time from a single charge and 28 hours when using the charging case.
So, when you consider all that, and their price, then you can see why they’re the best true wireless earbuds on the market.
