Best Wireless Earbuds 2018
NAVIGATE OUR TOP 10 WIRELESS EARBUDS
1. Tech Sport – Best Sports Wireless Earbuds
Jaybird is a company that has had years of experience in wireless audio. Their earphones have been around for years, and the X series is widely known for being one of the best. Although the cost of Jaybirds is a little higher than other competitors, they justify prices by delivering some great features.
We are looking at their latest creation, the Tech. The L3s are the third iteration of the company’s popular sweat-resistant wireless sports headphone. With some decent upgrades, the Tech L3 is probably the best headphone the company has produced.
Since Logitech owns Jaybird now,some tweaks have occurred in the 6mm drivers. As far as their performance goes, I will say these are among the best sounding wireless sports headphones out there right now. However, if you’re used to a fuller sound signature, you may not find it here since these are just wireless earphones.
The earphones also provide far better noise isolation,however, which might not be the best idea if you need situational awareness – when road running, for example. These wireless earphones come with a nice carrying pouch too.
Overall , the Tech L3 are a pair of wonderful wireless earphones. The fit is super-secure while remaining comfortable, the sound quality is great,
and are easy to carry. there is one downside, relative to its predecessors, is their affordability.
2. Bluetooth Headphones – Extremely budget Friendly (Under $40)
So, we decided to listen and look at the budget-friendly Bluetooth Headphones.
The good thing about these earphones is that they don’t cost a lot. You’d be surprised on how well the design fits for the earphones. It’s not outspoken, and the whole design follows a simple black/red color scheme. Sanse did a great job at keeping everything as minimal as possible.
Plus,It provide a dual port USB car charger and a 3ft charging cable for apple or android devices. Although this is unusual, we hope more companies adopt this trend.
Another good thing about this product is that they are capable of delivering true Hi-Fi sound With a frequency response of 20-22 kHz. Furthermore, with Bluetooth V4.1 wireless technology and CVC 6.0 noise suppression，you can enjoy astonishing earbud audio quality without the distraction of external noises, but still remain aware of traffic or other important outside noise.
3. Sport Wireless – Expensive yet Superior Quality
We are taking a look at something , and this company is one of few that is known for revolutionizing sound. Sport Wireless, the company’s first Bluetooth sports headphone, isn’t perfect either, but it may just be the best Bluetooth sports headphone currently out there.
The Sport Wireless is available in 2 colors. You can get them in a black or aqua color. There’s no difference in performance or either variation.
Another good thing about this product is the headphone works decently as a headset for making cell-phone calls and has an auto-off feature to preserve battery life
If you are okay with this small inconvenience, these earphones are amazing.
As you may have noticed, after the launch of Apple Airpods: There has been a tremendous insurgence of Completely Wireless Earbuds looking to replace the Apple Airpods. Some of these earbuds are complete thrash, while some offer performance better than the Airpods at half the price.
What we are looking at today is called the True Wireless earbuds, and they may be the smallest wireless earbuds we’ve seen thus far.
The earbuds has a Bluetooth 4.2 compatibility.Also, they are IPX4 certified sweat and water resistant which means that your workout sessions won’t be able to do much damage to the earphones.
The True Wireless Earbuds have angled design that will easily slide into your ear cavity and with the right tip will stay there easily even during physical activities like jogging, walking and strength exercises.
Before we talk about its built and sound quality, let me make few points about the battery and battery life. Given the latest Bluetooth tech, the earbuds offers a battery life of 5-6 hours of music playback and 120 hours of standby.
Without removing the earphones, you can control music and call functions by simply pressing on the earbuds. You also get noise cancellation too.
The sound quality though, I didn’t feel is quite at par considering the price, however nothing that will be a deal breaker though.
The mids are crisp and clear with a bit punchy bass, however the highs is where it suffers and sounds kind of shrill at times.
In a quiet environment, you can feel the prowess of the earbuds, however it’s only when you get outside or into a noisy environment, the ambient noise starts to leak.
5. Bluetooth Headphones – Extremely Small-Sized
For those who are curious, it is a relatively new company in the market. They’re an affordable brand that makes cheap headphones for sports and casual, everyday use. Some of their models are designed to look like popular headphones from other brands but at a fraction of their retail price.
Now the thing with Q29 is they are small. Believe it or not, they are smaller than the AirPods. They come neatly packaged in a small compact box and are enclosed in a carrying case that doubles up as a charging cradle. However, the important thing you should know is that you can lose them pretty easily.
The Q29 headphones are both comfortable and they generally stay in well.
Considering how they are pretty small, the battery life also happens to be low. However, keeping size in mind, we won’t deduct points here. The 2.5 to 3-hour battery life is rather impressive.
6. Tech 10 – Best Seller
Now, we are going to look at something surprising. The two most important features for a pair of headphones that you are going to wear at the gym are comfort, and audio quality. Tech 10 has nailed both of those with the SoundBuds NB10.
Keep in mind the SoundBuds NB10 is not a true wireless earphone. For those curious, true wireless doesn’t have any wires whatsoever to them.
While The Tech 10 SoundBuds NB10 don’t offer the same audio quality as what you’d get out of the Jaybirds X2, or the SoundSport or even the Beats Audio PowerBeats 3 headphones, they are much cheaper, but having the oversized 12mm drivers in each side definitely made for a fantastic experience with these earbuds.
Another good thing is that these earphones have a decent fit. With three sets of ear tips, in varying sizes,they are comfortable, lightweight and stable. In fact, sometimes when I was wearing them, I forgot that I even had them on.
Unlike most wireless in-ear solutions, ittakes a different approach to the design of their TONE series. By working the around-the-neck band into the mix, this allows it to do more than just provide wireless sound.The headset is comfortable around the neck and kind of blends in after time. It is super lightweight, so it won’t weigh you down any.
This has made these earphones for people who like to be active. These earphones support Bluetooth 4.1 and technologies such as aptX, and that makes sure your listening experience is smooth.
Taking a look at the sound quality of the TONE PRO headset, you immediately notice the clarity in the crisp highs that it offers. Your best to picture it as taking the speakers from a basic flat screen LCD TV, shrinking them down, and sticking them in your ears. Everything sounds like you are simply watching TV without an external speaker system.
There are a lot of good things about this pair of wireless earphones, and downsides too. The Level U Pro are reasonably well-made headphones. They have a lightweight and wireless around-the-neck design that’s sufficiently stable for jogging or exercising.
The in-ear buds don’t put as much pressure in the ear canal, which makes them slightly more comfortable than regular in-ear models. They’re not too cumbersome to carry on your person but won’t fit in any pockets. Unfortunately, their build quality feels a little cheap and susceptible to wear and tear.
However, when it comes to sound quality, as wireless headphones go, the Pro’s are solid. They have a good, extended, and relatively consistent bass delivery. They also have a good mid-range and a good treble.
We are almost done with the list, with only one more product . The MDR-XB50BS is worth considering for a few reasons: Not only is it relatively inexpensive, but just as importantly it fits well and sounds good, particularly if you listen to bass-heavy music.
A bit clunky-looking, however, The earphones are comfortable to wear for a long period of time. it’s fairly lightweight, and fit well with a few different size fins and eartips.
With their Extra Bass sound, the headphones give you more motivation, whether you’re at the gym or on the street. Their enhanced low frequency makes music sound more powerful, so you feel energized and driven.
Finally, the last product we are looking at is this. It has a protected and superlightweight design that makes these earbuds easy to leave dangling over your neck throughout the day. The entire device is coated in P2i moisture protection, making it sweat- and water-resistant.
The sound from the earphones is fantastic: bouncy and poppy, with clear, melodious mids.
Techtronics only offer 4.5 hours of battery life. But it is offering a battery extension solution in the form of a bundle that includes a charging case (BackBeat Go + Charging Case) with a built-in battery for charging on the go.
What the best wireless headphones have
Great sound quality.
When you’re buying a wireless pair of earphones, you’re going to spend a lot of money. So, when purchasing them, make sure they’re equipped with the latest technologies that can help you improve the sound experience.
aptX: Most wireless headphones use Bluetooth®, a technology that digitally encodes audio and transmits it wirelessly over short distances. While Bluetooth is the most popular format for transmitting wireless music, it can result in poor sound quality as your music files have to be compressed in order to be transmitted.
To avoid this, you should select headphones that support aptX audio. aptX is a technology that helps compress your music without losing as much of the recording data. This means that the sound quality is preserved even when you’re listening via a wireless connection.
In fact, aptX HD technology can deliver superior, high resolution quality audio over a wireless connection. That’s better than CD-quality sound.
Bluetooth Versions: Another important thing that you should look for when buying a pair of wireless earphones is the Bluetooth version.Make sure your wireless earphones have++ the latest version of Bluetooth.
The latest version happens to be Bluetooth 5.0. However, the only devices provided with this is the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+. The important thing is that the latest versions have better connectivity and battery life.
You should also consider battery life when buying a pair of earphones. The battery is dependent on Bluetooth technology as well. The newer the Bluetooth version is, the better the battery life. Many wireless headphones can run for eight hours or longer before needing a recharge.
Fit and Comfort.
When buying a pair of wireless earphones, the most important thing that you should look for is the fit and comfort of the earphones.The wireless earbuds mainly rely on their fit to provide the maximum amount of passive noise isolation.
You can get all sorts of fitness-oriented designs that wrap tightly around your head, over and around your ears, and then deep into your cranium. However in my experience, the best types of running headphones are actually lightweight Bluetooth in-ears with tips that go into the ear as usual, but with additional, curved, tapered ‘hooks’ that sit under the antihelix of your ear. For those of you who aren’t ear doctors, that is the crater of cartilage that sits above your earhole.
As for the comfort,When you’re looking for earbuds, make sure the review you’re reading mentions comfort level of the earphones. If it’s not good, don’t buy them.
Active Noise cancelling.
Active Noise cancelling technology reduces ambient noise, such as the drone of an engine or the woosh of air conditioning systems. Active Noise cancelling headphones do not eliminate the outside world, but they enable you to enjoy your music without needing to crank up the volume to overcome background noise. This is much better for your ears, and can help you hear more of the detail in your tunes.
Sweat Proof Design.
Although a ‘normal’ pair of headphones can work well for exercise, if they fit well enough, they’re just not built to stand up to heavy rain when running or, more importantly, sweat when doing any exercise. And sooner or later, sweat or heavy rain will find them. And it will kill them. All the headphones here are sweatproof and rain resistant, but not suitable for immersion (ie: swimming, or running in Manchester).
The pair of earphones which managed to stand out to us was the Sony MDRXB50BS.
Thanks to the incredible bass performance, brilliant battery life, and overall great comfort across the board, choosing the MDRXB50BS as our favorite pick wasn’t a difficult decision.
In case you feel that we left out some other great wireless earbuds, don’t hesitate to let us know.
