Someone can now find relatively affordable true wireless earphones that sound pretty good. And we’ve got a list of those of the best inexpensive true wireless earphones. But if sound quality is the matter of great importance, you’re going to have to spend a little extra and in some cases, a lot more.
They also tend to be on the larger side, because size does matter when it comes to the sound quality of true wireless earphones. To get optimal performance, these earphones have to fit perfectly and you do have to get a tight seal.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless is more expensive than Apple AirPods, The Jabra’s Elite 65t and Elite Active 65t and Bose SoundSport Free. But the bubs sound superior to those models, with better bass and clean audio and with more detailed sound. They also feature exceptional performance for making calls and offer a comfortable fit. Even though they’re bigger than the Jabra. Their only marked downside is that they gradually lose their charge in the charging case and can end up completely dead after four days or so if you don’t recharge the case.
At the gym, they don’t fit quite securely enough to run with them. Battery life is 4 hours, and you get two extra charges from the carrying case. These use Bluetooth 5.0 with support for AAC and aptX and a firmware update has improved their performance faintly.
Master & Dynamic MWo7 True Wireless
The Master & Dynamic MW07 True Wireless may not fit everyone’s ears ‘on the spot’, but they certainly have looks, as well as good sound quality, provided you can get a tight seal. Master & Dynamic headphones are known for more of an audiophile sound profile, with smooth, well-balanced sound and well-defined bass, and the MW07 delivers that.
It’s available in a variety of colour options, they include a swanky chrome charging case that comes with a secondary pouch for safekeeping. That’s because the chrome can get all scratched up. Battery life is at 3.5 hours, which is a little on the downside, and the case gives you an additional three charges with a USB-C. These use Bluetooth 4.2 with support for AAC and aptX. And have an extended range of more than 20m, according to Master & Dynamic.
Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 True Wireless Earphones
The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 2.0 True Wireless Earphones features some extra design tweaks. The charging case for the E8 is arguably the most aesthetically pleasing of any other charging case out there. They also sound very clean and clear, with well-balanced sound. The bass has better precision but, doesn’t have quite as much energy or pump as the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless’ bass. For this very reason, these aren’t the true wireless earphones for bass lovers, but they do sound impressive with well-recorded tracks. While they’re the most-expensive earphones in this list, they come in a variety of colour options like Black, Acid Blue and Grey.
Bang & Olufsen improve the battery life to 4 hours, plus three additional charges from the case and added USB-C and wireless charging. These use Bluetooth 4.2 supports AAC but not aptX.
Beats Powerbeats Pro
Powerbeats Pro’s jumbo charging case is a notable drawback. But the combination of incorporating all the features that make Apple’s AirPods great while delivering richer sound. The Bass is the best in the list, and it has a better sound quality, but the drawback is that it might not fit everyone. In addition, it’s built with better battery life in a design that won’t fall out of your ears. It uses a Bluetooth 5.0 with support for AAC but not aptX.
Jabra Elite 65t
The Elite 65t and the slightly enhanced Elite Active 65t are currently the top picks in the true wireless category because they sound better than Apple’s AirPods. They offer just as good or even better performance for making calls, and they fit a lot of ears securely. Their sound isn’t quite as rich or clear as the other buds on the list. Even the bass lacks a little kick, but it’s still a very good sounding set. Since they’ve been on the market awhile, they’re frequently discounted. Uses Bluetooth 4.2 with AAC but no aptX.
Under Armour True Wireless Flash Engineered by JBL
JBL and Under Armour’s new True Wireless Flash is “designed for runners by runners”. They’re technically the first truly wireless earphones from the duo, and they’re quite good. Although some of their appeal is rather tempered by a large charging case which is probably three times the size of Apple’s AirPods’ charging case. The sound is relatively clean, well-balanced and beefy bass that’s pretty well-defined, they sound on par and even slightly better than other true wireless headphones in its price class. They’ve got better bass than the Jabra Elite 65t, but the Elite 65t may fit more ears comfortably. The earphones are fully waterproof and use Bluetooth 4.2.
The Earphone market is evergrowing as people tend to buy better bubs, just like how the Moblie phone market is evolving. There are more and better wireless earphones heading our way.
