Jabra Elite 75t True Wireless Headphones
Jabra Elite 75t True Wireless Headphones

Color Options: Gold Beige and Titanium

     The Jabra Elite 65t series was our overall favorite true wireless earbuds of 2018-2019. With the release of the Elite 75t and Elite Active 75t, they didn’t disappoint. They made two of the best improvements an audio company could make without sacrificing any other features.

     Adding 2.5 hours of battery life, they give you a total of 7.5 hours of listening. The other major improvement is the overall smaller size and lighter weight. Jabra used a special measurement algorithm to redesign them to fit comfortably in almost any ear. This gives them a secure fit without the added bulk and pressure of additional ear wings.

     As a bonus, the Jabra Sound+ App is one of the most comprehensive apps in the industry. Available on iPhone and Android, you can customize almost any part of your listening experience. There’s a fully customizable equalizer with the option to program 3 presets for different environments and situations. It even lets you select your preferred voice assistant like Siri, Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa and more.

Samsung Buds+

Best for Samsung Users

Samsung Buds+ - Red
Samsung Buds+ - Red

Color Options: Black, Red, White, and Cloud Blue

     Just like the AirPods Pro to iPhone, the Samsung Buds+ give you the best overall experience if you rock a Samsung phone. However, their specs jump off the page a lot more than the AirPods Pro. Specifically, the 11 hours of listening time is their best feature besides the premium sound. Also, they’re almost $100 less than the AirPods Pro, so these may be a better choice for iPhone users.

     The 3 sizes of ear wings and tips isolate outside noises so you don’t have to deal with battery-hungry noise cancellation features. Also, their 5.8pi dynamic drivers provide big, immersive sound without the added bulk. At just under $150, these are some of the best true wireless earbuds for Samsung device lovers.

Key Features:

  • Battery Life – 11 hrs (22 hrs total with charging case)
  • Dust/Water Resistance – IPX4
  • Fast Charging – 3 min gives you 1 hr of listening
  • Charge Type – USB-C & Qi-certified wireless
  • Driver Size – 5.8pi dynamic drivers
  • Bluetooth Version – 5.0 
  • Noise Cancellation – No (noise-isolating)
  • Accessory Kit – 3 sets of ear tips & 3 sets of ear wings

AirPods Pro

Best for Apple Users

Apple AirPods Pro True Wireless Earbuds

Color Options: White

     Just like most Apple devices, what the AirPods Pro lack in hardware specs they make up in software features. Built around the Apple H1 chip, you get seamless pairing and compatibility with any device running Apple iOS. They also have adaptive EQ to take the guesswork out of tuning for different situations.

     Apple’s one-size-fits-most approach to earbuds is improved with the addition of 3 sets of ear tips. They still haven’t mastered it yet, but there’s a healthy amount of 3rd-party ear wings and hooks to improve their fit. The drawback is that they don’t fit in the charging case with any of these additions.

     Also, in true Apple fashion, the on-board 4.5 hours of battery life is below average. On the other hand, the charging case is packed with extra juice for a total of 24 hours of battery. Unless you’re an Apple fanatic, the price tag of just under $250 should have you considering other options.

Key Features:

  • Battery Life – 4.5 hrs (24 hrs total with charging case)
  • Dust/Water Resistance – IPX4
  • Fast Charging – 5 min gives you 1 hr of listening
  • Charge Type – Apple Lightning & Qi-certified wireless charging
  • Driver Size – Unkown
  • Bluetooth Version – 5.0 (Plus Apple H1 chip for iOS devices)
  • Noise Cancellation – Yes (ANC)
  • Accessory Kit – 3 sets of ear tips

Sony WF-1000XM3

Best Noise Cancellation

Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Earbuds - Black
Sony WF-1000XM3 True Wireless Earbuds - Black

Color Options: Black and Silver

     If industry-leading noise cancellation is what you’re looking for, there’s nothing better than the Sony WF-1000XM3’s. Their QN1e HD Noise Canceling Processor is second-to-none. Perfect for loud office environments or commuting on planes, trains, and busses, they’ll keep you in your own world.

     One of the only things we didn’t like about researching these is that Sony doesn’t provide an IP rating for dust and water. That means it’s probably not very good, and it makes them a no-go for workout usage. On the other hand, they feature adaptive ambient sound control based on your activity. Also, their 24-bit audio signal processing makes these luxurious earbuds an easy choice for audiophiles.

Key Features:

  • Battery Life – 6 hrs (24 hrs total with charging case)
  • Dust/Water Resistance – N/A
  • Fast Charging – 10 min gives you 90 min of listening
  • Charge Type – USB-C
  • Driver Size – 6mm
  • Bluetooth Version – 5.0
  • Noise Cancellation – YES!!! 
  • Accessory Kit – 6 sets of ear tips

Amazfit PowerBuds and Charging Case
Amazfit PowerBuds True Wireless Earbuds & Charging Case

Color Options: Black/Red, White/Red, and Grey/Green

     Even before the Amazfit PowerBuds were released, they were already winning over hearts and minds (and ears).  With Amazfit’s revolutionary designs in smartwatches and fitness trackers, they didn’t hold back on the PowerBuds.

     One of our favorite features is the removable magnetic ear hooks. Giving you extra security during workouts, you can pop off the ear hooks for more casual usage. Also, they took it a step further and designed the lid of the charging case to hold the ear hooks when not in use. Just like all of their other wearables, the price is far less than other earbuds with similar features.
