Best Wireless Earbuds 2019

When it comes to buying wireless earbuds, the experience is a little different than purchasing wired headphones.

When buying decent wired headphones you don’t need to have a bunch of specifics in your head. You need to remember technical details like impedance and size of drivers, but that’s about it.

However, when you are buying wireless earbuds, you need to keep some things in mind.

Look at the comparison table. I will provide you with more information that will help you in our Buyer’s Guide later.

1. Jaybird x3 Sport – Best Sports Headphones

Jaybird X3 ReviewJaybird is a company that has perfected the art of wireless earphones. Their earphones have been around for years, and the X series is known for being one of the best. Although Jaybirds can be pricier than other competitors, they justify prices by delivering some great features.

We are looking at their latest creation, the Jaybird X3. The X3s are the third iteration in the series which has enjoyed much success. For starters, you are getting the same incredible sweat-proof design with some decent upgrades.

In case you are wondering what the main differences are between the X2 and X3, the X3 is smaller than the X2s. The inline microphone has gotten a change in design, and the device has a new battery aimed at providing a better battery life.

Since Logitech owns Jaybird now, some tweaks have occurred in the 6mm drivers. Expect better sound in the X3’s. As far as their performance goes, the Jaybirds X3 may be one of the best sounding wireless earphones we’ve tested. However, if you’re used to a fuller sound signature, you may not find it here since these are just wireless earphones.

The earphones also provide adequate noise cancellation. However, this may be a safety concern for runners because they manage to block out a fair amount of noise from the outside world. These wireless earphones come with a nice carrying pouch too.

Overall, the Jaybird X3 are a pair of wonderful wireless earphones. They sound fantastic and are easy to carry. However, there is one downside, we would like them to be more comfortable.

If you are a runner that wants to listen to music without the hassle of wires, the Jaybird X3’s are great.
Pros
  • Great sound for the small size.
  • Impressive battery life.
  • Earphones come with a compact carrying case.
  • Great noise isolation.
  • Compact design.
Cons
  • The earphones aren’t as comfortable as you may like.

2. SENSO Bluetooth Headphones – Extremely budget Friendly (Under $40)

SENSO Bluetooth Headphones Review

Next up, we are looking at something unconventional. On our website, people have complained that we always look at high-end stuff and end up missing out on some oriented high-value products.

So, we decided to listen and look at the budget-friendly SENSO Bluetooth Headphones.

The good thing about these earphones is that they don’t cost a lot. You’d be surprised on how well the design fits for the earphones. It’s not outspoken, and the whole design follows a simple black/red color scheme. Senso did a great job at keeping everything as minimal as possible.

The headphones come with a nice carrying case, and you get three different size ear tips. If you are worried about the fit, the earphones do have soft textured flexible ear clips on both sides to make the fit easier to control.

Senso was kind enough to provide a small car charger for the wireless earphones. Although this is unusual, we hope more companies adopt this trend.

Onto the sound quality and overall performance, these were the places that concerned us the most. The case with every budget-friendly earphones is that they are often missing out on having enough performance to them.

As for Senso earphones, the good thing is that they can deliver actual high-fidelity sound quality. Sure, you’re not going to get the same performance you get from high-end earphones, but what you’re getting is more than enough.

Another good thing about this product is that these earphones come with an IPX7 rating. The rating means that you shouldn’t have to worry about wearing them in high-intensity workouts.

We don’t have any major issues with this product. The device is Hi-Fi capable, IPx7 certified, has excellent noise cancellation, the sound quality is on top, and they are comfortable. Senso has done a great job. The only complaint we have is that the earpieces are kind of big, but not obnoxious.
Pros
  • Sound perfect for the price you pay.
  • Earphones come packed with a lot of accessories.
  • They have an IPX7 rating and can play Hi-Fi audio files.
  • Comfortable for long periods of usage.
  • The noise cancellation works well.
Cons
  • The earpieces are a bit too big for our liking.

3. Bose SoundSport Wireless – Expensive yet Premium Quality

Bose SoundSport Wireless Review

We are taking a look at something from Bose, and this company is one of few that is known for revolutionizing sound. Now, this may seem like an exaggeration, but they are recognized in the audio industry for creating some of the finest wireless earphones. Bose is seen as perfecting active noise cancellation.

Bose SoundSport Wireless is the name of the earphones we are looking at today. As the name suggests, these earphones are for people who prefer working out and listening to music. Keep in mind, these earphones are expensive, but the price is understandable because they’re from Bose.

The SoundSport Wireless is available in 2 colors. You can get them in a black or aqua color. There’s no difference in performance or either variation.

Speaking of performance, the SoundSport performs as expected and the sound is good. Given, you shouldn’t be expecting the noise level that you get from really high-end headphones but what Bose has done with the sound of SoundSport is commendable.

A great thing about these earphones is they are comfortable. You shouldn’t have any issues wearing them for extended periods of time. Another good thing about this product is the earphones manage to work as a headset for making calls.

Bose SoundSport Wireless comes with decent battery life too. By decent, we mean you get 6 hours. However, your mileage may vary depending on the loudness of the music.

We should let you know that no earphones are perfect. The only issue we are facing here is the ear-tips end up protruding out of the ears. While that shouldn’t cause any problems, it just looks odd.

If you are okay with this small inconvenience, these earphones are amazing.

Pros
  • Sound pretty good for the price.
  • Great design.
  • Comfortable, even for extended time periods.
  • They can turn off on their own to save battery life.
  • Decent battery life.
Cons
  • The eartips protrude from the ear, and look weird.

5. SoundPEATS Bluetooth Headphones – Extremely Small in Size

SoundPEATS Bluetooth Headphones Review

For those who are curious, SoundPEATS is a relatively new company in the market that is aimed at providing quality audio at a lower price point.

The company prides itself on being great because they want to deliver a wireless experience to general consumers without them breaking the bank.

Now the thing with SoundPEATS Q29 is they are small. Believe it or not, they are smaller than the AirPods. They come neatly packaged in a small compact box and are enclosed in a carrying case that doubles up as a charging cradle. However, the important thing you should know is that you can lose them pretty easily.

The box contains some booklets and ear tips for adequate size. As far as performance, they sound decent for the size. While there’s no way you can compare them to full sized headphones, what you’re getting is more than enough.

Considering how they are pretty small, the battery life also happens to be low. However, keeping size in mind, we won’t deduct points here. The 2.5 to 3-hour battery life is rather impressive.

Comfort is another thing that these earphones didn’t mess up. Their lightweight design and comfort makes them easy to use.

With that said, the SoundPEATS Bluetooth headphones are cheap, they sound good, and have decent battery life to them. However, their small size may make them easy to lose.
Pros
  • Impressive sound quality for small size.
  • Nicely packaged.
  • The carrying case doubles up as a charging cradle.
  • Decent battery life.
Cons
  • Small size allows them

Conclusion

The pair of earphones which managed to stand out to us was the JayBird X3. Thanks to the incredible bass performance, brilliant battery life, and overall great comfort across the board, choosing the JayBird X3 as our favorite pick wasn’t a difficult decision.

In case you feel that we left out some other great wireless earbuds, don’t hesitate to let us know.
