Music makes the world go around, said the Hamilton Brothers. It’s what drives you to get productive (or laze around) at work. It’s what makes you enjoy your daily commute despite all the annoying nuances that happen.
Yet you can’t just crank up your preferred music when you are out. Of course, you need something that would let you listen to your own brand of sound directly to your ears.
And if you do not like the bulky headphones that are popular nowadays, you would always prefer the next best thing, the earbuds or earphones. And if you absolutely hate wires, wireless Bluetooth earbuds are a thing now too!
Now, with all the expensive wireless earbuds out there, you might be wondering what to choose. Fear not, for we have a solution for that. Presenting, the three best wireless earbuds that won’t hurt your wallet.
Battery life: 8 hours
Beats also often have problems with sound performance in terms of headphones, but the Beats X apparently doesn’t have any of all those problems.
With the inclusion of Apple’s proprietary W1 chip, the Beats X makes up for all the shortcomings of its forefathers. If you are looking for wire earbuds that offer heavy bass sounds, then this is definitely for you.
With a solid connectivity (due to the aforementioned Apple chip), the pairing process for this product is as smooth as possible.
Of course, being earbuds, the sound quality is not as detailed as what headphones would offer. But it is not bad either. And did we mention that the total charging time for the Beats X wireless earbuds only take up to 5 minutes?
Yes, 5 whole minutes, and you are ready to go and listen to your favorite music again.
If you don’t mind a pricier tag that the rest of the products in this brand and would like the fastest charging time for a wireless earbud, then the Beats X is definitely for you.
Jaybird Freedom Wireless
Battery life: 8 hours
The Freedom Wireless also has high points when it comes to offering comfort, as their buds don’t penetrate too deep into your ears resulting in a booming sound-induced headache. Having an Equalizer setting set up on your mobile music device is also a good feature for the Freedoms.
The only sad part about these buds is that it offers only good sound quality. Not excellent, not bad. Just, good. And the battery life is not that great either.
But if you are only using these sparingly for travel and would like to look good while listening to music, then this is definitely a good set of wireless earbuds to check out.
Optoma NuForce BE Sport3
Battery life: 10 hours
The BE Sport3 has the following specs:
- Weight: 18 grams
- Frequency response: 20Hz – 20kHz
- Drivers: 10mm
- Driver type: Dynamic
- Sensitivity: 102dB +/-3dB at 1kHz
- Impedance: 16 Ohms
- Wireless range: 10m
For something so small to contain those specs, NuForce really knows what they are doing. Not to mention that it is just a tad bit pricier than the Freedoms, but doesn’t even reach the Beats X price tag.
The sound quality is excellent, the battery life makes it last for a long time, and it is extremely durable. The BE Sport3 earbuds are one of the best in the market. And not that does not even include the noise isolation feature these babies have.
