If you're looking for a new pair of wireless earbuds that deliver the newest technology with an affordable price tag, the ALLAS True Wireless Earbuds are a great choice. They're Bluetooth 5.0, with 8 times the broadcast capacity of previous iterations, meaning you'll enjoy near-instant pairing and uninterrupted connectivity whether you're working your way through the gym or walking around town. Similar to the Bose SoundSport Free earbuds (retail: $199.95), the ALLAS earbuds are also lightweight and ergonomically designed, using customizable ear tips rather than painful hooks or clips to fit snugly and securely in your ear. Plus, they're sweat-resistant and water-resistant, so they can withstand a vigorous workout or a particularly strenuous commute without any problems. You can even wear them in the rain, so there's no need to panic if you get caught out in the elements.
Jabra may have just announced its latest totally wireless earbuds at CES, but I got a hold of a pair early and have been using them as primary headphones for about a week. While the $170 Elite 65t that I've been wearing isn't a final model, they still gave me an idea of what to expect when the final version ships next month. Mostly, Jabra proves that you don't need to spend $250 (or more) to get a pair of earbuds that won't get tangled and still sound really good.
Just to let you know, if you buy something featured here, Mashable might earn an affiliate commission. The first headphones were invented in 1919 as a way to listen to electrical audio. Since then, headphones have received a serious upgrade. They're no longer essential for listening to music -- we now have speakers and amplifiers for that -- so it's important to make them as user-friendly as possible. Today, headphones are smaller and more comfortable than ever before.
