Expect plenty of deals on the best wireless earbuds in the coming season, with Black Friday and the holidays around the corner. True wireless earbuds are in the spotlight right now and the competition to improve its technology is fierce. Wireless earbuds now have longer battery life, better sound and location technology making their biggest problem (misplacing the suckers) a thing of the past. I admit, I was one who used to think wireless earbuds were totally unnecessary, but I love the freedom they offer. Read that statement as: I’m tired of tangled cords. I’ve been eyeing these models for a while now, and here are the details you need to make the best purchase of your new, cordless life.
Sennheiser MOMENTUM True Wireless Earbuds 2
The Sennheiser is consistently at the top of everyone’s list for it’s amazing sound and great noise cancellation. It’s pricey, but you get a quality product and there have been some recent price drops if you know where to look (Spoiler Alert: Use Rakuten!).
The Jabra is often named as a best buy product for its amazing sound quality at a mid-range price point. Fans love the easy multifunction button, something that is still lacking on most earbud products. While there is no active noise cancellation, it does have good wind noise reduction if you like to walk and talk.
One of the biggest issues with earbuds is that they’re easy to lose or break. Skullcandy offers a very competitive product (at a very low price tag) for this problem. They’ve incorporated Tile, a feature that makes it easy to find a lost earbud, and if something is lost or broken, you can buy a single bud.
