Through the years, we’ve all witnessed how technology has improved our lives. And one thing in specific that’s considered a feat is things without wires. Like, can you imagine if our phones today can’t function without being plugged? There’s a name for that, a telephone!
Wirelessness – yes, it’s a real word – has made things more convenient and evolutionary. And it has now come to a point where headphones, earbuds, cans, in-ear monitors, or whatever you’d like to call it have freed itself from strings. If you want that, then this read is a must.
1. B&O Beoplay H5
The subtitle says it all. This pair of earbuds is the epitome of luxuriousness.
For starters, it comes from one of the top audio giants, B&O (Bang & Olufsen). The moment you see this product, you’ll drop your jaw and immediately appreciate its elegant looks. You’ll feel right away that it’s made out of high-quality material, and the word “cheap” will never cross your mind. So, without question, it pairs with iPhone 7’s stylishness.
The Beoplay H5 also has one of the best sound qualities on our list. It’s excellent for listening to music and taking phone calls. The only issue is it doesn’t securely lock on your ears. So if you plan on wearing these during strenuous activities, you’re not going to have a pleasant experience.
2. Sony MDR-1000X
Sony has never failed us when it comes to technology. And one of its finest products available in the market is the MDR-1000X. Although its price may be an issue for some people, it does compensate very well for its overall performance and quality.
The first feature that we loved the most about it is its superb noise cancellation. You can literally mute the outside world and just appreciate your music – great sets of highs, mids, and lows. And the second feature is its ease of control. You can change the track, pause, play, and tone it down with a few touches on the can’s cover.
To make things even better, it provides you the “Ambient Sound” option. It’s a mode where you can still keep the clatter out but the voices in. To make it clear, even though you’re listening to your jam, you can hear people talking to you without the unwanted noise. So you can have conversations or know when you’re being called.
3. Jaybird – Freedom
In a word, it fits. One of the most common issues when it comes to wireless in-ear headphones is it’ll soon detach from your ears. But the Freedom won’t do that. The company perfectly named this product as it does give you a reattaching-free experience.
There will be times that it’ll need some minor adjustment, but only during very intensive physical activities. It fixates very well due to its small build and is very comfortable. Among all the products on this list, this one has the tiniest earbuds. It has an average battery life of only four hours when fully charged but will double when using its extra clip.
The only thing that may discourage you about these headphones is its sound quality. The sound is so-so, and the bass isn’t that spectacular. However, if you’re just into having background music while enjoying a good run, you better grab one of these.
4. Razer ManO'War
Let me start by stating: this wireless gaming headset is phenomenal. A few things that make it a perfect gaming tool are due to its comfort, microphone quality, zero-latency connectivity, and 7.1 virtual surround sound.
With this pair of cans, you’re able to accurately locate your enemy by just listening to the background. It’s ideal for any first-person or third-person game. Furthermore, you can wear them for hours without any problems due to its soft, breathable cushions. It also has a clear microphone that will provide better communication with your team or party.
One thing that might be a little concern for some people is its controls. They’re not on the cover but at the bottom part of the earpad, which makes it quite difficult to adjust when focusing on the game. But changing the audio settings during gameplay is quite unusual, so it shouldn’t bother most gamers.
5. Photive HF1
Being the cheapest on the list doesn’t mean being the most undesirable. Surprisingly, this pair of headphones is quite a rare find, and it undeniably looks classy. To start, it has a pretty decent battery life of about 15 hours, and it only takes one-fifth of that to recharge completely.
It has good sound quality with appreciable bass. Like most wireless headphones out there, it uses Bluetooth for pairing with devices. It’s soft and doesn’t fatigue your ears even if it’s on you for hours. Why we’d recommend it for watching TV or any form of indoor entertainment is because it’s incredibly easy to pair.
Its simplicity makes everything so much easier. There’s no need to reconfigure too much when watching a movie. And for the price and aesthetics, it’s an amazing purchase.
6. Bose SoundSport Wireless Earphones
Last but not least on our list is the Bose SoundSport – perfect for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. These earphones give everyone who loves to hit the gym a hassle-free experience. That’s all thanks to its durable, tangle-free, and easy-to-wear design.
It has crisp sound with adequate low notes to boost your gym workouts. And it even tracks your heart rate accurately. Moreover, you don’t have to worry if you sweat too much as it’s water-resistant.
These headphones lock on your ears well enough without compromising your comfort. Although it is quite pricey, it significantly makes working out better. If you want an in-ear headphone that will never disappoint you when lifting some weights, the SoundSport is for you.
