Listening to music is something that has been around for ages. And gadgets like headphones and earphones enrich the listening process a lot more. 

Bluetooth earbuds are a new addition to this list. They are miles and miles better than their predecessors. The best thing you don’t have to worry about annoying wires and cables anymore.

What are Some of the Best Bluetooth Earbuds?

The below-mentioned products are some of the best wireless and true wireless Bluetooth earbuds that ensure the best sound quality and listening experience.

1. Apple Airpods 2

Apple Airpods 2 - Best Bluetooth Earbuds

Weight: 4g each/48g with case

Battery Life: 5 hours (Up to 24 hours with case)

Enclosure: Closed-Back

Wireless: True Wireless

Noise Cancelling: No

Waterproof: No

Price: $168.95

These are one of the best and most opted wireless earbuds for the iPhone, and I am sure all of the iPhone users would agree with this fact. And why wouldn’t they be? The gel perfectly well with the Apple ecosystem (well they have created for that itself, but still.) 

AirPods also put forth a new feature: wireless charging of the battery case. The convenience increases to the next level because you can also put the case onto a Qi wireless pad to charge. 

However, a bit of sound performance is lost due to premium build quality, and due to that, they sound similar to the EarPods that come with every iPhone.

2. Jaybird Tarah Pro

Jaybird Tarah Pro - Best Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

Weight: 20g without eargel

Battery Life: 13 hours

Enclosure: Closed-Back

Wireless: Wireless

Noise Cancelling: No

Waterproof: IPX7

Price: $99.95                       

Jaybird Tarah Pro Bluetooth earbuds have already created a name for themselves in the market. They are counted amongst the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds which are well-suited to a wide range of music genres. 

They’re well-built, have various sound profiles for different purposes, feature a great parametric EQ (that means you can personalize the sound to your own liking), and have a very comfortable earbud-like fit. They are a win-win in almost all facets.

However, they lack in one aspect: Charging. They have a proprietary charging cradle which can be very inconvenient if you lose it (no compatibility with micro-USB cable).

You also can’t connect to two devices simultaneously. 

3. Beats Powerbeats Pro

Beats Powerbeats Pro - Best Bluetooth Earbuds in 2020

Weight: 10.5g each/130g with case

Battery Life: 9 hours (25 hours with case)

Waterproof: IPX4

Price: $249.95                        

Beats is undoubtedly a world-renowned (and expensive) brand that is aimed at devising devices and gadgets that make every user experience the best. Beats Powerbeats Pro is one such product.

These Bluetooth earbuds are supremely comfortable, have decent sound, and have an impressive and immaculate fit. That means they are the best wireless earbuds for running and workouts.

And you wouldn’t believe it, but many people have even termed it as one of the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds for iPhone (even better than Airpods!). And we seem to completely agree with this fact.

4. Bose QuiteControl 30

Weight: 63gm

Battery Life: 10 hours

Enclosure: Closed-Back

Wireless: Wireless

Noise Cancelling: Yes

Waterproof: No

Price:  $299.00                     

Bose QuiteControl 30 is one of the best noise-canceling wireless earbuds. They are shaped as headphones with a horseshoe neckband-style and earbuds with a comfortable fit. That means wearing them is a breeze. You can jump around or workout easily wearing these Bluetooth earbuds.

You can also adjust the noise-canceling feature. You can raise or lower it by clicking the button on using the Bose Connect app. So if you’re out in the open, you should lower it so that you can keep track of the surroundings, while alone you can keep it at the maximum. 

The headphones are sweatproof, making them suitable for sports, though the design might bother some athletes.

5. Samsung Galaxy Buds

Weight: 6gm

Battery Life: 6-8 hours

Samsung Galaxy Buds are giving a cutthroat competition to even the best true wireless Bluetooth earbuds for Android. They are able to instantly pair to Galaxy devices with a seamless connection. You wouldn’t even have to fire up your Bluetooth toggle because Samsung has pop-up shortcuts to process the pairings.

You get a decent and thoughtful frequency response as well as great audio reproduction. Features like Ambient Sound control mode and Scalable Bluetooth compression aim to make your listening experience the absolute finest.

And did I tell you how comfortable they feel? The design is such that it doesn’t put any pressure on your ears.

Although, its default sound lacks a little bass, that’s where the cons to this product end. They really are the best Bluetooth wireless earbuds.

6. SENSO ActivBuds S-250 Bluetooth Earbuds

SENSO ActivBuds S-250 Bluetooth Earbuds

Weight: 22gm

The design is very convenient to use because of the secure fit and minimal usage of cable. The product also boasts a combination of state of the art acoustics.

They are able to connect with devices at distances until 30 feet. The quality of the connection is stable because of the noise suppression technology. That means, no words or sounds will be missed even when the device is away at the maximum allowed range.

7. Jabra Elite Active 65t

Jabra Elite Active 65t - Best Wireless Earbuds

Weight: 13g each/320g with case

Battery Life: 5 hours (15 hours with case)

Enclosure: Closed-Back

Wireless: True Wireless

Noise Cancelling: Noise Isolation

Waterproof: IP55

Price: $159.99      

Jabra Elite Active 65t is one of the best looking and the best-sounding true wireless Bluetooth earbuds you could ever get your hands on. And they are so comfortable to wear too.

There are two mics on each earbud, helping the software to control the outer noises. They also lead to having the best sound and very clear voice during calls. These microphones only pick up the sound of the person talking, none of the sounds around or behind her/him are heard (great isolation performance!)

The set is fairly small and lightweight and has an enhanced data speed and connection strength.

8. Bose SoundSport Free

Bose SoundSport Free - Best Wireless Earbuds in 2020

Weight: 8.5gm

Battery Life: 5 hours

Enclosure: Semi-open

Wireless: True Wireless

Noise Cancelling: No

Waterproof: IPX4

Price: $199                       

Bose SoundSport Free is one of the best sounding true wireless earbuds in the market, only lacking in one feature: they aren’t noised canceling.

They boast both a lightweight body as well as a comfortable fit. A top-notch combination for workouts and commutes, for sure.

You get a powerful and weighty bass with a quaint even tonal balance.

Even though the bulkier and bigger design means better sound quality, the earbuds protrude quite a bit out of the ears. Also, the buttons are difficult to operate because of their stiffness.

9. Sony WF-1000XM3

Sony WF-1000XM3

Weight: 8.5g each/77g with case

Battery Life: 8 hours (24-32 hours with case)

Enclosure: Closed-Back

Wireless: True Wireless

Noise Cancelling: Active

Waterproof: No

Price: $228.00     

Now, this is a true front-runner in the race of the best wireless Bluetooth earbuds. The fit is immaculate, the build quality is premium, the touch controls work amazingly well, and the sound quality hits a homerun. The bass is weighty, well-controlled, and deep. 

The Sony WF-1000XM3 earbuds also possess noise-canceling capabilities that are something to write home about. You can even adjust the noise-canceling level based on the surroundings and your activities.

But every good thing has its own set of flaws. The charging case is quite big, and well, there is no touch control for volume.

10. Cambridge Audio Melomania 1

Cambridge Audio Melomania 1

Weight: 9.2gm

Battery Life: 9 hours (45 hours with charging case)

Enclosure: Closed-Back

Wireless: True Wireless

Noise Cancelling: No

Waterproof: No

Price: $129.95                      

Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 integrates award-winning engineering and convenience of truly wireless listening together to ensure that the user gets the best listening experience of rhythmic and detailed sounds.

They are literally one of the best true wireless earbuds for both Android devices and iPhones. Some users even regard it as a much better option to Airpods. 

Playback controls and handy volume are among the product’s noteworthy features. What more can I say?

The only major flaw to this product is that it has a tricky fit, which might not be a good thing for when you are constantly moving or are in a crowded place.

And that’s it. These were some of the best Bluetooth earbuds you could ever come across. So what are you waiting for? Part ways from your old listening devices, and take your pick from them.
