IFA 2019: Huawei’s Other Big IFA Reveal is an Airpod Clone

So aside from the reveal of the Kirin 990, what else does Huawei have in store for us this year? Well it's not the Mate 30 series - - that gets its own launch at the end of the month--its a pair of wireless earbuds that look very much like Apple's Airpods. Read More >>

IFA 2019: Jabra’s Great Truly Wireless Earbuds Just Got Better

Finally, A Proper AirPods Competitor

The first time I picked up the Jaybird Vista truly wireless earbuds, a thought started looping through my head: These things are impossibly tiny and light. Even the case is pocket-sized. The sheer portability reminded me of AirPods, but there’s an essential distinction. The new Jaybird earbuds are practically bombproof. You can get them wet or bury them in dirt, and they’ll keep working. Functionally, the Vistas are probably the best fitness-focused earbuds I’ve tested. And did I mention—they’re so light!

Sony’s New Wireless Earbuds Put Surprisingly Good Noise Cancelling in your Pocket

Sony has been trying to crack a tough nut for the past couple of years. The company wants to translate the tremendous success it’s had making over-ear noise-cancelling headphones and shrink the technology down to something you can put in your pocket. The new £220 WF-1000XM3 represent its latest attempt at miniaturising its excellent noise-cancelling technology. They also represent some impressive progress, and the result is a terrific set of earbuds unlike anything else on the market. Read More >>

Sony’s New Truly Wireless Noise-Cancelling Earbuds Feel Like a Fancy Step Forward

Sony showed up early to the truly wireless noise-cancelling party in 2017, and now the company has an exciting new update: the WF-1000XM3 truly wireless earbuds. They cost $230 (~£180, UK price TBA) and look like some silly mini version of the company’s popular WH-1000XM3 noise-cancelling headphones. That’s kind of the point, too. Apple’s AirPods have no noise-cancelling and the excellent Jabra Elite 65t only have noise reduction. Excellent noise-cancelling earbuds could be a big deal. Read More >>

OnePlus Bullets Wireless vs Bullets Wireless 2: What’s the Difference?

Despite some rumours that OnePlus would jump onto the wire-free earbud bandwagon, the company has not decided to ditch all their wires. Instead, it has released a newer version of last year's Bullets Wireless, in the inventively named Bullets Wireless 2. Obviously a new product means new features, but just how different are they compared to last year? Fortunately, I have both pairs in my possession, and can tell you just how different they are.

The New Truly Wireless Powerbeats Pro Seem Like the Better AirPods We’ve Wanted All Long

If the second generation of AirPods seemed underwhelming, the new Powerbeats Pro by Beats might just get your blood moving. They’re truly wireless earbuds designed for sports and equipped with the new Apple-made H1 chip, superior sound quality, as well as an eye-popping nine hours of battery life. In other words, the Powerbeats Pro earbuds can do everything the new AirPods can—but better. Read More >>

I Really Wanted to Love Jaybird’s Wireless Sport Earbuds

All earbuds are, at least in my experience, a trade-off of one kind or another, especially true wireless earbuds with words like “sport” or “active” in their name. Ergonomics, battery life, and sound quality all fight for representation in a vanishingly small form factor, at best striking an acceptable balance of mediocrity between all three. Frustrated with many of the other buds I’d tried out, I had hoped the Jaybird RUN XTs would be the pair to solve this conundrum. Read More >>

The Galaxy Buds Are Samsung’s Attempt to One Up the AirPods

At this point, it’s practically impossible to go outside without seeing white earbuds sticking out of people’s heads, and with sales of Apple AirPods expected to rise to between 50 and 55 million this year, that phenomenon probably won’t go away anytime soon. Read More >>

Klipsch’s New Wireless Earbuds Are Wooing Me With a Zippo-Like Charging Case

Apple’s AirPods paved the way for decent wireless earbuds, but the lump of white plastic that serves as their charging case leaves something to be aesthetically desired. Limited battery life means you’ll have to carry some way to recharge wireless earbuds, though, and Klipsch is seriously wooing me with a battery case that looks like an iconic Zippo lighter.

Sennheiser’s Truly Wireless Earbuds Sound Impossibly Good

I walked into this review hoping to be disappointed. Ever since I first reviewed them four years ago, the over-ear Sennheiser Momentum Wireless has been the model to beat in terms of supreme sound quality in the world of Bluetooth headphones. So when the company announced that it would be releasing truly wireless earbuds with the Momentum name, I almost wanted them to suck. It wouldn’t be fair for Sennheiser to dominate the earbud business too! But alas, the Momentum True Wireless earbuds are awesome. Read More >>

To All the ‘Shitty’ Earbuds I’ve Loved Before

Don’t Cross Revamped AirPods Off Your Christmas List Just Yet

When Apple failed to provide any updates on AirPods during its most recent launch event, it seemed like fans of the ubiquitous wireless earbuds would be forced to wait until 2019 for a new model. However, based on newly granted Bluetooth SIG certifications discovered by MySmartPrice.com, it seems there’s still a chance that new AirPods could hit the market before the end of the year.
