The new world is heading towards contactless technology. Everything is becoming mobile and convenient for the users in all aspects. Our attention is on Wireless headphones which, have made giant strides in the world during the last couple of years. You could find many brands that manufacture truly wireless earbuds. Amidst all those options you see in the market,What is the best? What gives real value for money? What has the best sound quality? What has the longest-lasting battery life? These are few questions any consumer would face before making the purchase decision.
The Jabra Elite Active 75t came into the market in May 2020. 200$ is the price you have to pay to own these earbuds. It is not in the high range, nor is it in the lower range. If you are looking for real value for your money, the Jabra Elite Active 75t is the best in the market. 7-hour battery life would not be as high as the Samsung Galaxy Buds plus, but an additional 28 hours, provided by the charging case, is more than enough for you to get through the day. The only downside of the Jabra is that it doesn’t support wireless charging. There are enough and more products that support wireless charging, but this feature does not affect the product’s performance.
The new Apple Airpod Pro came to the market on the 30th of October 2019. It stormed into the market with a better design and better features than the previous version, which was disappointing for the majority of the users. The new Apple Airpod Pro costs 249$, which is pretty expensive compare to other competitors. The price and the lower battery life is what puts the Airpod Pro’s second in our list of best truly wireless earbuds. Apple guarantees 5 hours of battery life compared to 7 hours of battery life, which you get from the Jabra Elite Active 75t. There is a 50$ difference between the two products, which makes the Jabra more value for money.
The Apple Airpod Pros comes with an IPX4 rating, which means it is not water-resistant, but it is suited for an active lifestyle because it is sweat-proof. This is another reason why the Apple Airpod Pros is second best to the Jabra’s.
However, the main feature that increases the Airpod Pro value is the fact that it comes with Active Noise Cancelation. Apple used the technology to drown all the exterior noises to help the user enjoy undisturbed audio. When it comes to calling quality, the Airpod Pro uses two beamforming microphones and an inward-facing microphone to isolate outside noise from your voice.

The balance in audio is excellent. The mids are well balanced, and even though the bass is not as prominent as the Jabra Elite Active 75t, the overall sound output is far better than what you get in any other truly wireless earbuds in the market. The Airpod Pro’s control button is on the shorter stem, and it is force sensitive. This feature could be easy for the user to make the necessary actions when needed. If you are already an Apple user, these Airpod Pro wireless earbuds will make life easier as it works seamlessly with other Apple products.
Apart from the hefty price tag, these earbuds rank pretty high amongst the options you get in the market.
Sennheiser is one of the pioneers when it comes to audio equipment. They launched the Sennheiser Momentum 2 Truly wireless earbuds in April 2020. Sennheiser took huge strides toward its first-generation by adding ANC and balancing the sound to compete with the best brands out there. Unfortunately, they couldn’t do it without increasing the price tag. These Sennheiser Momentum 2 costs 299$, which is 50$ dollars higher than the Aipod Pro and 100$ higher than the Jabra Elite Active 75t. However, the audio quality justifies the hefty price tag.
The 1st generation of Sennheiser Truly Wireless Earbuds came with only 4 hours of guaranteed battery life. With the 2nd Gen, Sennheiser has extended the battery life up to 7 hours. It is similar to what you get with the Jabra Elite Active 75t. The charging case adds another 21 hours of battery life. Unfortunately, the charging case does not support wireless charging.
Sennheiser has never been disappointing when it comes to audio quality. These Sennheiser Momentum 2 wireless headset comes with a mobile application that provided full authority to the user to customize the controls and the sound balance to their liking. This is not something you get with any other truly wireless earbuds. There are always restrictions on the controls, which makes the Sennheiser Momentum 2 worth the money you spent.
The Sennheiser Momentum 2 is by far the best ANC truly wireless earbuds in the market. Sennheiser could have launched it at a lesser price and made a few differences in the design.
The water-resistant rating of just IPX4 could have been higher as well but, apart from those few negatives, the Sennheiser Momentum 2 is one of the best in the market.
When Samsung launched the Galaxy buds plus in February 2020, it stormed into the market with a whopping 11 hours of uninterrupted playback. This is by far the highest battery capacity amongst all other competitors in the market. Samsung achieved this without changing anything with the design, which was surprising. The charging case which supports wireless charging provides an additional full charge to the earbuds. The battery capacity tops all other major brands in the market.
The Samsung Galaxy buds plus design and colors fit perfectly with the Samsung Flagship phones, making users go for these earbuds when they purchase the phone. As mentioned earlier, Samsung achieved the 11-hour battery capacity by not changing anything with the earlier design. There was no added weight to the earbuds; in fact, these earbuds are one of the lightest earbuds in the market, making it super comfortable for the user.
The Samsung Galaxy buds plus truly wireless earbuds come with passive noise cancelation. Although it’s not as good as what you get with Jabra Elite Active 75t, the Samsung Galaxy earbuds plus does an excellent job of drowning the exterior noises. The user can control the ambient sound input from the app. There are three settings of low, mid, and high. There are microphones in each earbud, used to control the audio output.
A very low water resistance rating of IPX2 makes these earbuds less attractive for the user. It doesn’t mean you can’t use these while jogging or working out in the gym, but the assurance is lower than many other truly wireless earbuds with a higher IP rating.
Beats by Dr. Dre are one of the giants when it comes to audio equipment manufacturers. They launched the PowerBeats Pro in April 2019. It costs 249$. These truly wireless earbuds are ideal for an active lifestyle. The design is perfect for sudden moves during workout sessions; the fixed ear hooks keep the earbuds in place at all times. Although the design is quite big compared to other truly wireless earbuds already in the market, these earbuds stay flush in your ear. The rich matte finish and the design makes these earbuds stand out from the rest.
The Powerbeats pro comes with a water-resistant rating of IPX4. It is more than enough for the user, compared to what you get from the Samsung Galaxy buds plus. The battery capacity of 9 hours, which is only 2 hours less than what you get from the Samsung Galaxy buds plus, makes these earbuds ideal for daily use. Compared to many Truly Wireless earbuds such as Airpods or the Jabra, these Powerbeats Pro proves to be way ahead when it comes to battery performance.
Apart from the 9-hour battery life through the earbuds, the charging case provides another 15 hours of playback, which means you could enjoy 24 hours of playback. When it comes to audio quality, Beats does not disappoint. The rich bass is perfect for bass lovers. And even though there is no Active Noise Cancelation in these earbuds, the ideal fit and audio quality drowns out the noise.
Google pixel buds came to the market in April 2020. Google finally got rid of wire, which began in their first Google Pixel buds.
