Best Wireless Earbuds in 2019

You would like to enjoy your music on public transport freely, without being burdened with an imposing audio headset, or simply to avoid the hassle of cables that get tangled? To address this problem, wireless earbuds – or true wireless – are an ideal solution. Whether Sony, Bose, Jabra or Samsung, they all offer references that suit your needs. Find our selection of the best wireless earbuds in 2019.

True wireless earbuds are usually in-ear devices that have no wires at all. They work the same way as Bluetooth earbuds, with the difference that the freedom of movement is total with true wireless. A type of product intended for the most nomadic as well as the sporting ones looking for lightness and practicality.

Usually delivered with a charging box, these earbuds usually enjoy a good battery life. In addition, some models even benefit from additional features, such as active noise reduction, or even a heart rate sensor.

Sony WF-1000X: our recommendation

Sony WF-1000X

The reputation of the 1000X range of the Japanese manufacturer is more to prove today, Sony has accustomed us to quality products and WF-1000X Bluetooth earbuds do not break the rule. They offer a precise and clear sound, with deep bass rather well restored. In addition, you should know that the earbuds are certified Hi-Res (High Resolution), which allows them to play files in 24 Mbits (type FLAC, WAV, ALAC, AIFF, DFF, DSF, etc.). Basically, formats much appreciated by the most demanding audiophiles.

Active noise reduction is also effective on Sony earbuds with the Atmospheric Pressure Optimizing feature. It automatically measures the ambient air pressure to adapt the noise reduction of the earphones, which mainly allows to improve the audio quality according to your environment, whether you are on the train, on the plane or quiet at home. All of this is handled directly via the Sony Earbuds Connect app with Adaptive Sound Control.

In terms of autonomy, they can reach up to 9 hours of listening with the charging box. Finally, note that the Sony WF-1000XN earphones have been updated to provide compatibility with Google Assistant.

Why do we recommend these ear buds?

  • Sony quality at a reduced price
  • Hi-Res Compatibility
  • Many options for noise reduction
  • Google Assistant integration since the last update

Jabra Elite Active 65T: the right alternative (with Amazon Alexa integrated)

Jabra Elite Active 65T

Jabra is a forerunner in the field of true wireless earbuds. The audio specialist has indeed launched at the end of 2016 with its Elite Sport earbuds and has been improving ever since. The Elite Active 65T is distinguished by the integration of Bluetooth 5.0 and their very stable wireless connection. They also offer a five-hour battery life, which is still rare on the market, as well as a good sound reproduction, both for you and for voice calls.

The Jabra Elite Active 65T earbuds do not forget the design or comfort since they link a metallic look, rather aesthetic without being screaming, to a good hold in the ears. Finally, the buttons on the earphones allow easy control of music or calls.

  • They offer a very good sound quality

Samsung Galaxy Bud: for wireless compatibility

Samsung Galaxy Bud

With its Samsung Galaxy Bud, the South Korean manufacturer relies on the know-how of AKG. In addition to offering a compact design that fits nicely in the hollow of the ears, they also enjoy a very satisfying sound. Nevertheless, this opinion is diverse from person to person. Indeed, the Galaxy Buds have their own sound, which implies an unnatural aspect of the pieces, including translated by distortion at high volumes on songs with a lot of instrumentation.

On the other hand, do not believe that Samsung Galaxy Bud does not deliver a satisfactory sound quality. According to our test, it is in the same position with the Apple AirPods, which is not too bad for this price band. In addition, passive isolation is well managed thanks to the two microphones integrated into each earpiece which constantly analyze the surrounding sound level.

These earbuds are especially distinguished by their compatibility with wireless charging. If you have a compatible wireless charger or a Samsung Galaxy S10, then simply put the charging box to recover the battery. Finally, their autonomy is rather appreciable, estimated at 7 hours on average.

Specifications

Model Samsung Galaxy Buds
Drums 58 mAh
Battery case 252 mAh
Active noise reduction No
Weight 6 grams / 40 grams
Dimensions 19.2 x 17.5 x 22.5 mm
Case size 26.5 x 70 x 38.8 mm
Bluetooth 5.0

Why do we recommend these ear buds?

  • Comfortable with a compact design
  • Beautiful battery life and compatible wireless charging
  • Good passive insulation

Bose SoundSport Free: the most comfortable

Bose SoundSport Free

The Bose SoundSport Free is IPX4 certified, which protects them from perspiration and rain. They come with 3 pairs of StayHear + tips designed to provide maximum comfort. As usual at Bose, these tips are among the most comfortable that can be found on earphones in-ear. They isolate particularly well, without returning completely into the auditory canal.

They provide a clear and powerful sound, all with a battery life of about 5 hours. The controls on the right headset allow you to take calls, manage listening and access personal assistants with a multifunction button.

Their mobile app provides access to various settings, such as the choice of language for voice prompts, and features, such as “find my earbuds” that make them sound to indicate their location.

Why do we recommend these ear buds?

  • They bring a comfort and a maintenance very appreciable
  • The functionality to find your earbuds is very interesting
  • They have good autonomy

The Apple AirPods 2: the solution that works also on Android

Apple AirPods 2

Apple also has its wireless earbuds, which respond to the slight name of AirPods. The Cupertino Company has also renewed its range with a second version of its true wireless earbuds. Still as comfortable to wear (even if we always look a little dumb with), they have the same characteristics as the old model: a battery life of 5 hours, Bluetooth connection 5.0, etc.

The only difference with its predecessor comes from its compatibility with wireless charging, but also through the integration of Siri directly in the earpieces.

Why do we recommend these ear buds?

  • They can pair with devices other than Apple products
  • Now compatible wireless charging
  • Native integration of Siri
