When you’re looking for the best true wireless earbuds, your choices don’t stop at the category’s bestseller: Apple’s AirPods. Several competitors now offer better battery life, audio quality and performance (not to mention compatibility with technology outside of the Apple device ecosystem), making the market for true wireless earbuds truly competitive, with more to come.
This list identifies the overall best wireless earbuds (we have another for wireless headphones). For more, check out the best cheap true wireless earbuds and the best-sounding true wireless earbuds. The best wireless earbuds need to have an ergonomic design, fit right with a tight earbud seal and feel comfortable for optimal performance. If you can’t get a snug earbud fit with in-ear headphones, you’ll be sadly disappointed and feel ripped off, which is why I suggest buying your pair of wireless earbuds from a vendor with a decent return policy. This also helps if the earbuds don’t meet some other expectation, from ambient sound cancellation to touch control to how long they last on a single charge. We’ll update this list of best wireless earbuds regularly as we review new products.
The technology behind wireless earbuds has improved markedly, and now they have become as ubiquitous as wired headphones. The very best wireless earbuds offer long battery life, great sound, and call quality, and some noise cancellation, as well as water- and sweat-resistance, so you can use them for working out without worrying about damage. And the best wireless earbuds rise to the top of the list fit comfortably within your ears and don’t budge while you’re running or working out.
