The Best True Wireless Headphones

South China Morning Post

When it comes to truly wireless headphones, you can expect to spend a bit of money for the cream of the crop. But if you’re going to spend that much, shouldn’t you be getting bang for your buck? Today, we’re looking at the best true wireless headphones, and the best deals you can find on them.

Apple AirPods

Apple’s trademark AirPods are the gold standard when it comes to true wireless. The most recent version of the earphones, the AirPods Pro, can be found now for around $250. This makes them among the priciest options for wireless earbuds, but you get a lot for your money. These all-around great earphones are light, comfortable, and sound excellent.

The smart hardware running inside these is the reason for the huge price tag. They synch beautifully with your devices, and, if you have an iPhone, you can use them to issue Siri commands. The microphone works great for calls, and you can pause or skip songs by tapping on the device. These are all-around excellent earbuds for anyone who’s okay spending a bit of money.

Google Pixel Buds

If you prefer Android to Apple, then you’re probably not looking for AirPods. Enter Google’s competitor, the Pixel Buds. The second-generation buds will run you $180, a solid chunk of change, but they’re some of the best earphones you can get for an Android device. The fit is comfortable, and they’re unlikely to just fall out of your ear. Sound quality is superb, and hands-free Google Assistant is a boon.

All in all, if you use an Android device and want a suitable replacement for AirPods, get the Pixel Buds. They’re essentially a re-skinned pair of AirPods that plays nice with Google Assistant instead of Siri.

Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless

Sennheiser makes some absolutely stellar audio products. If you want the best sound reproduction of any true wireless earbuds, this is the pair for you. The Momentum True Wireless 2 earphones are an eye-watering $300, but their sound quality speaks for itself. You get every penny’s worth out of the spacious, excellent sound these earphones put out.

What’s more, these high-tech earphones offer active sound cancellation and a stunning seven-hour battery life. It’s hard to overstate just how good these earbuds are! Even better, they have an IPX rating of 4, meaning they’re splash-proof. While you won’t be taking them into the pool, they should be safe for getting a splash from poolside.
