Top 5 Best Fully Wireless Earbuds 2019
Here are the top rated true wireless earphones of the year!
The Bose SoundSport Free are expensive, but they’ve got a lot going for them. They are really comfortable with super soft ear fins/tips and a decently secure fit. They are semi-in-ear, meaning they don’t completely seal off your ear canal and do let in ambient sound. With that said, the sound quality is really good actually. Very crisp and clear and really impressive for true wireless earbuds.
Also, they have pretty good battery life at about 5 hours on a single charge with 10 additional hours in their charging case. They even have a quick charge feature that gets you about 45 minutes of playback time with just 15 minutes of charging. Our biggest gripe with the SoundSports is their size. They stick out of your ear quite a bit and are heavy. Therefore, running and intense workouts are more or less out of the equation for these earbuds. You’ll want to stick to light gym sessions and general use with the SSF.
One other highlight feature for us is the connection between the earbuds—it’s stable and they rarely cut out, which is something many other fully wireless earbuds are plagued by. If you need any additional details, here’s the link to our full Bose SoundSport Free Review. Here’s also Bose’s video for the SoundSport Free.
When you think of easy to use, convenient headphones, the AirPods have to be the first thing that pops into your mind, especially if you’re an iOS user. The setup process is mindless and the Bluetooth connection to your phone is solid. You can go about 90 feet from your phone and retain a pretty good signal. The connection between the buds is great as well. We only rarely encounter any real interference or disruptions.
The AirPods also sport 5 hours of battery life with an additional 24 hours in their charging cradle. They even have a fast charging feature that gets you 3 hours off just 15 minutes on the charger, which is pretty incredible.
The AirPods aren’t going to be your best workout headphones and they do look funny, but they’re just solid, reliable earbuds for general use. You can learn more in our full Apple AirPods Review.
It’s hard to find affordable truly wireless earbuds that are actually worth using. So far, the SoundPEATS are the best we’ve tested. They’re comfortable and have a similar around-ear design as the Beats Powerbeats3, which makes them ideal for workouts. We’ve also found that the Bluetooth connection between the buds and also to your phone is pretty stable. They’re not on par with Apple, but for under $45 [see on Amazon], the connection is good. The audio quality is also decent, all things considered. The SoundPEATS also have three buttons on top of each earbud that allows you to control track management, volume, and calls.
The Samsung Gear IconX 2018 are an iterative, yet welcomed upgrade over the original Gear IconX Earbuds. What do I mean by that? Well, they have a very similar look to the original, but they ditched the ear heart rate monitor and now have much better battery life (5-6 hours on a single charge). Beyond that, they have 3.4GB of available internal storage for your music and phone-free listening. They have a super secure fit that makes them ideal for intense workouts, although they fatigue my ears quickly since they use a lot of plastic.
Audio quality is good, but not great…not as good as with the Bose SoundSport Free. Bluetooth connection is pretty good with no real cutouts. My biggest complaint is the touch system for controlling volume, tracks, and accessing voice search. Since you aren’t working with physical buttons, they are hopelessly error prone (you will try to turn up the volume and you will end up pausing the track). Further, since you press in on the earbuds, it rapidly fatigues your ears.
Bottom line with the SGIX 2018 is they have solid battery life, a secure fit, a good wireless connection, and internal storage, which makes them pretty unique.
The Run are Jaybird’s first truly wireless earbuds. They got a lot right, but they aren’t perfect. For starters, they have a super secure fit (more so than any other earbuds). They are more comfortable than the Samsung Gear IconX, but they do also fatigue your ears eventually.
The Run are extra water and sweat resistant, so much so we took them in the pool and had no issues as a result (not recommended). They have really good sound quality and it’s even customizable within the Jaybird app. Here’s a quick video about the Jaybird app.
Also worth mentioning is that the Bluetooth connection to your phone is pretty average. Bose and Apple are definitely better here. And related to that, the connection between the earbuds is just ok. There’s a lot of folks complaining about them cutting in and out all of the time. We didn’t experience that, but there are signal interferences more often than with the SoundSport Free, for example.
Bottom line is that they have a great fit, good sound quality, and solid battery life (5 hours+). The $180 price point is a little up there, but we definitely will see deals. You can check our Home Page for Today’s Top 100 Deals.
