Going wireless for listening to music is not a new concept. It has been around ever since the age of Bluetooth. However, the multipurpose Bluetooth earbuds experience has taken it all up a notch. Before the issue was mostly bulky products that not only didn’t fit right and looked terrible, but they were also fast to die with the user having to resume normal cumbersome phone functions to begin with. However now, with the advancement in technology, you get these small earbuds that not only fit in your ears perfectly with multiple functionalities built in, but you also get long lasting batteries with the boxes that these earbuds go inside for storage, charging them as you go.
We are going to look at 5 of the best wireless earbuds you can go online and buy right now. There are several factors considered when trying to figure this list out. Like what which Bluetooth earbuds will be perfect for a quite setting and drowning out noise and which ones are durable and give a great fit during a hard workout at the Gym. We also look at the economic factors as not everyone has the budget to go for the more expensive items available and if a workaround or compromise can help you save like £80, then why not.
As Stated before, we are looking into all sorts of functionalities when it comes to finding our top contenders for the best wireless earbuds. The Bose wireless earbuds have a line of earbuds fit for different kinds of uses. The QuietComfort earbuds have extra speakers and sound processing components which makes it exceptionally reliable at repelling outside sounds. In fact, the earbuds beat other wireless earbuds for android and iPhone devices when it comes to noise cancellation by a mile and a half. It also boasts over 6 hours of play-time which is more than Air-pods. On top of that, it can be fast charged via USB-C. Just 15 minutes can give you 2 hours of battery time. However, it does have its drawbacks. 1st being that it is quite bulky. Which can be a problem if you are a prolonged user as your ears might tire out. Second being that they are not at all friendly for using at the gym with its low IPX4 rating.
These wireless earbuds are great if you are an android user especially. Jaybird Tarah pro have a secure fit for strenuous workouts which makes them great for using inside a gym. With a rating of IPX7 for the water and sweat resistance, it also means that you can rest assured that your workouts won’t damage the earbuds. The sound is great too, with some extra bass in it. Even with that, the sound doesn’t leak out much which means you can workout and crank it up a notch without disturbing others. The only drawback I would say is that it does not support multi-pairing which means switching between multiple devices, like your laptop and phone, can be a hassle.
Another edition in our Sports earbuds category. These are great because these are really cheap and get the job done without too much hassle. Now these don’t boast the IPX7 rating of Jaybird Tarah Pro but it offers enough protection and a better seamless fit without going around the head, for the fraction of that price which ranges from £10-15 depending on where you can get it. You get several key control functions to stay on top of calls and notifications as well. Its play time is just over 3 hours, which is more than enough for even extended gym sessions. These can get fully charged in 70 minutes so a single 20-minute charge can get you an hour’s worth of time.
J-Lab Wireless Earbuds have made a name for themselves as a brand for rivalling the performance of top level ear buds like Air-Pods and giving you that experience for just £25. The great thing about these is that they can get you an astounding 5 hours of playtime. However, the charging can be a bit slow and they are a bit heavier on the bass than other wireless earbuds for android if you are not into that sort of thing. Still, with IP55 sweat resistance, low price and a comfortable wear, these might just be the best pick of the lot.
Master & Dynamic MW07 Go are one of the hottest earbuds in the market. For much lesser than the price of the Airpods, you get something that is even a more comfortable fit due to the slotted silicon ear fins. These are intuitive to use and can be great to use in both quite settings and even workouts. The main reason, apart from the versatility of the M & D wireless earbuds, is the whopping battery you get. If you are a forgetful sod like me, then having a great battery life can be a boon in case you forget to recharge. And you can probably go more than 3 days without charging these as these give over 10 hours of battery time. Combine that with the over 12 hours’ worth of battery stored in the case, you are looking at almost a day worth of non-stop functioning.
