The best wireless earbuds and earphones in 2019
Wireless earbuds are one of the best ways to listen to your music on the go, whether your commuting, heading to the gym, or relaxing poolside on a sunny day the right pair of earphones will stay put and bring you quality sound.
You’d be forgiven for thinking wireless earbuds aren’t as good as the best headphones – that’s because a few short years ago, Bluetooth wasn’t the best way listen to your favorite music.
Back in the day, Bluetooth earphones didn’t sound as good as their wired counterparts, suffered connectivity issues and became known for having short battery lives.
What you need to know about Black Friday 2019
It’s no secret that Black Friday and Cyber Monday are some of the best times to find fantastic wireless headphone deals. Usually you’ll find that mid-range brands like Optoma and Jaybird get the biggest discounts at retailers like Amazon, but it’s worth bearing in mind that Bose, Sony, and Sennheiser have all recently released new models – and that means older models could be discounted.
Luckily, times have changed. Thanks to improvements in wireless transmission standards, such as aptX and innovations in battery technology, Bluetooth earbuds are quickly becoming the most popular way to listen to music, and many of the best earbuds feature wireless connectivity.
When it comes to wireless earphones the big question is: which brands have emerged as the best when it comes to big Bluetooth improvements and the future of audio innovation?
Audio companies like Jaybird, Plantronics, Nuforce, RHA and Jabra all are great options, as they’ve all committed a great deal deal of time and money to improving audio quality without sacrificing battery life – and there are some good options from big players like Sony, Apple and Bose, too.
