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.
Earbuds are essentially designed to shoot sound directly at your eardrums. The makers of the 360 5.1 Virtual Surround Sound Earbuds decided it was time to change that. These buds supposedly pack a unique, patented technology that will supposedly make you feel like you're sitting in the recording studio. Built to separate frequencies, the idea is that they deliver crisp, surround sound-like quality, whether you're listening to music, audiobooks, or podcasts. The intrasonic frequency offers a booming bass, while the material inside the headphones absorbs any unwanted feedback.
Wirefree (true wireless) earbuds are one of those ideas that sounds like a dream: Pop a tiny little headphone into each ear and listen to music untethered from everything. Until recently, the reality was quite different. Most of the first wirefree buds were gigantic, dead after a few hours, and had a bunch of other problems. There are a host of new models that sound fabulous and work (almost) perfectly. After testing dozens of them for the past three years, here are our favorite wirefree earbuds right now, in a wide range of styles and prices.
