Finding a premium pair of wireless earbuds isn’t as easy as it sounds. With so many options to choose from and quantity certainly trumping quality, it’s difficult to find a pair that’s really worth your money. We’re here to make the search a lot easier!
On this episode of In The Know Live: Gadgets, get a rundown of the three best premium wireless earbuds you can buy today from brands we know and trust: Marshall, Apple and Sony. Watch the full video above for a thorough description and preview of each product, then shop each pick below!
1. Marshall Mode II True Wireless Headphones, $179.99
Marshall is known for producing some of the most top-quality and well-engineered audio products and the Marshall Mode II True Wireless Headphones are no exception. These are the most affordable of the three highlighted in this video and feature touch controls that allow you to operate them without having to pull out your phone. They’re also water-resistant and feature customizable sound thanks to the equalizer programmed into the Marshall app.
2. Apple AirPods Pro, $179.99 (Orig. $249)
Though the Apple AirPods Pro are on par with the cheaper Marshall Mode II True Wireless Headphones in terms of sound quality and battery life, they’re the perfect pick for that person who prefers staying within the Apple ecosystem. These also feature noise-canceling technology and while they don’t eliminate surrounding sound completely, they do a fair job.
Currently, they’re on sale for $179.99, the same as the Marshall earbuds’ standard retail price.
The Sony WF-1000XM4 Industry Leading Truly Wireless Noise Canceling Earbuds — a mouthful, I know — are, by far, the best of the three in terms of robust, crisp sound quality and clear noise-canceling technology. These pack the punch of on-ear and over-ear headphones without the bulk. Also, they feature innovative “Made To Fit” technology that allows users to fit the earbuds perfectly for their unique ear cavities.
All three earbuds highlighted have wireless charging capabilities and are water-resistant.
