The 8 Best Wireless Earbuds of 2020

The wireless earbud market is bigger than ever as more and more phone shuck the the audio jack in favor of going Bluetooth-only. So how do you pick the best one? Not to worry, we’ve taken the legwork out for you by reviewing and researching dozens of wireless Bluetooth earbuds and picking the best ones for your perusal. Over the course of our testing, we judged everything from audio quality to battery life, as well as special features like EQ software and waterproofing.

Best Overall: Apple AirPods Pro

What We Like

  • Active noise cancellation
  • Vastly improved sound
  • Water resistance
  • Interchangeable tips

What We Don’t Like

  • Touch controls inconsistent

Apple’s original AirPods debuted to middling reviews and hilarious memes. The golf tee earbuds seemed silly in the face of more effective designs from competing brands. Yet despite their average sound quality, the AirPods and AirPods 2 have become badges of honor among Apple faithful. Enter the AirPods Pro, which improve on the original concept with a bevy of functionality and quality-of-life improvements. The biggest change that Apple touts is active noise cancelation, and rightfully so. This feature drowns out all outside noise if you’re looking for a break from the world. This is no doubt helped along by the new interchangeable silicon tips. Alongside added passive noise cancelation, the ear tips give you plenty of options for finding the perfect fit.

An ambient hearing mode pipes sound in from your surroundings, a crucial feature for cyclists, pedestrians, or anyone who needs to keep their ears to the street. Early AirPods Pro reviews rank their noise cancelation’s efficacy highly, perhaps even better than Sony’s WF-1000XM3, which was long regarded as the top echelon in true wireless earbuds. In our own testing, we found that Apple also stepped up its game in overall audio quality. Our reviewer noticed a stronger bass response and crisper highs despite using the same H1 chip as the AirPods 2. We can’t wrap this up without giving Apple major props for adding water resistance, making the AirPods Pro viable for workouts and brief outings in the rain. Add five hours of battery life and another 24 hours through the included fast charging case, and the AirPods Pro stand out as the best pair of stringless earbuds money can buy.

“Perhaps part of the reason the AirPods Pros felt so good and comfortable during my tests is that, during setup, the AirPods Pros run a quick audio test to ensure that the fit will enable the best-possible Active Noise Cancellation seal.”— Lance Ulanoff, Editor in Chief, Lifewire

Best Budget: Anker SoundCore Liberty 2 Pro

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy
  • Buy on Aliexpress.com

What We Like

  • Up to 32 hours of listening
  • Custom equalizer
  • Quick charging

What We Don’t Like

No Alexa voice command support

If you’re looking for an alternative to the pricey AirPod Pro earbuds, check out the Anker SoundCore Liberty 2 Pro buds. These earbuds feature 11mm dynamic drivers to deliver deep, punchy bass sounds and clear, crisp high tones. You can use them with the Hear ID custom equalizer app to adjust the audio levels and listen to your favorite songs as they were meant to be heard. They come packaged with a wide variety of liquid silicone gels and wings for a comfortable and secure fit in almost all ear types and sizes.

Both earbuds have Bluetooth connectivity and controls so you can use one and leave the other inactive so you can hear your environment. On a full charge, you can get up to eight hours of listening, and up to 32 hours with the charging case. If you need a quick charge for a commute or workout, just 10 minutes of charging gives you up to an hour of listening. They have a 10 minute auto off feature if they aren’t in use to preserve battery life. If you use these earbuds for calls, they have a four microphone array to help isolate your voice from ambient noise and wind so all your calls are clean and clear. They’re also compatible with Siri voice commands for hands-free control over your smartphone.

Best Noise Cancelation: Sony WF-1000XM3

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy

What We Like

  • Excellent noise-cancelation
  • Great sound quality
  • Intuitive controls
  • Long battery life

What We Don’t Like

  • No water resistance

The former king of true wireless noise-canceling earbuds, the Sony WF-1000XM3, finally met their match in Apple’s AirPods Pro, but they remain tops among this growing sector. A longtime juggernaut of audio supremacy, Sony’s mastery took another leap with these buds, which offer noise cancelation in a sleek package. They aren’t as nimble as the AirPods Pro, but the added bulk in the WF-1000XM3’s chassis makes room for a slightly bigger battery, which allows Sony to advertise six-hour uptime.

Sony’s noise cancellation technology remains bar-setting thanks to the QN1e processor. Paired with Sony’s DSEE HX audio engine, little can compete with the sound quality coming out of the WF-1000XM3. You’ll get well-balanced sound out of the box, and there’s an adjustable EQ if Sony’s modest sound signature doesn’t vibe with you. The WF-1000XM3 are also intuitive. Using touch controls, for instance, you can disengage noise cancelation in either of the buds by holding your finger against it. Managing your calls, tracks, and digital assistants happens with just a few taps and swipes. Removal detection is also present, so your tracks will pause if one of the earbuds falls out.

If that isn’t enough, Sony attempts to reduce some of that manual labor with a smart listening mode that can switch between ambient sound and noise cancellation based on your activity.

“Sony is widely regarded as having some of the best noise cancelling in the business, giving former industry leaders like Bose a run for their money.”—Ajay Kumar, Tech Editor, Lifewire

Best for Sound Quality: Sennheiser Momentum

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy
  • Buy on B&H Photo Video

What We Like

  • Bluetooth 5.0 AptX
  • Water resistance
  • Ear-pleasing sound

What We Don’t Like

  • Mediocre battery

Classic audio brand Sennheiser was a latecomer to the true wireless game, but its Momentum earbuds hit the scene with veteran effectiveness. We feel these are the best sounding pair of true wireless earbuds you can find, bar none. Sennheiser never defined the exact audio technology and drivers inside the Momentum, but they transmit the tunes over a Bluetooth 5.0 AptX signal. For the uninitiated, Bluetooth 5.0 AptX offers a reliable channel for fast and clear wireless audio that rivals wired headphones. Say goodbye to static, drops, audio sync issues, and other niggles that plagued older tech. As for the sound quality, expect warm bass and well-balanced mids and highs throughout a wide range of volumes. If you don’t like what you hear, the Smart Control app lets you tweak each element to your liking.

The Sennheiser Momentum battery life now seems laughable at just four hours, but seeing as they were rookies in a then-infantile market, it’s understandable. You also only get an extra eight hours from a case that’s bulky, but fashionable. That said, the earbuds themselves don’t stick out much, and they can handle a little sweat and rain if you’re wearing them out on a run.

Best for Phone Calls: Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy
  • Buy on Att.com

What We Like

  • Wind-filtering noise cancelation
  • Comfortable fit

What We Don’t Like

  • Needs more EQ options

If you’re more of a talker than a jammer, the Plantronics BackBeat Pro 5100 should make you (and your caller) happy. It has four noise-canceling microphones. That alone is nothing revolutionary for headsets, but the company claims its WindSmart technology automatically detects and filters wind. And while there’s no noise cancelation, the cone-shaped ear tips should do a decent job of blocking out moderate levels of noise, and there are multiple options for those in the box.

Otherwise, Plantronics delivers on better-than-average sound quality with a pair of 5.8mm drivers that make the BackBeat Pro 5100 perfectly acceptable for music. Their tap controls are backed by the BackBeats app that grants cool functionality like one- or two-tap access to playlists, EQ settings, and handy stopwatch and time functions. Couple those last two goodies with IP54 water resistance and 6.5 hours of battery (plus an extra 13 hours from the case), and they can even pull double duty as your workout buddies.

Best for Android: Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy
  • Buy on B&H Photo Video

What We Like

  • Quick charging
  • Long battery life
  • Ambient Aware mode

What We Don’t Like

  • Not ambidextrous

AirPods may be kind for iOS users, but Android fans can give them a run for their money with Samsung’s Galaxy Buds Plus. These in-ear headphones feature a two-way dynamic speaker with a dedicated woofer and tweeter to give you rich, powerful bass and clean, clear high tones. They have a 22 hour stand-by battery life and can give you up to 11 hours of music/movie streaming and 15 hours of talk time. The charging case gives you up to one hour of listening with just three minutes of charging; perfect for a commute or workout when you forgot to charge overnight.

With the Ambient Aware mode, the earbuds monitor external sound and adjust your music volume accordingly so you can hear flight announcements, oncoming traffic, and other important information without pausing. When using them for calls, the earbuds have an internal and two external microphones that isolate your voice from ambient noise for crystal clear calling. Intuitive tap controls let you play/pause music, skip songs, and take calls with the touch of a button. With the Galaxy Wearable app, you can monitor the battery levels of your earbuds and charging case at a glance.

Best for Running: Beats by Dre PowerBeats Pro

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy
  • Buy on B&H Photo Video

What We Like

  • iOS and Android compatible
  • Long battery life
  • Sweat/water resistant

What We Don’t Like

  • Not noise cancelling
  • Not good in full rain

Avid joggers and long-distance runners will want to pick up their own set of PowerBeats Pro. These wireless earbuds are lightweight and feature a secure earhook to keep them in place while you run. Each earbud also has their own Bluetooth chip and touch/voice controls so you can wear one and keep the other off to hear oncoming traffic and other important information. They’re sweat and water resistant so you can keep listening to your favorite songs and podcasts no matter how hard your workout is.

With the wireless charging case, you can get up to 24 hours of listening time and up to nine hours without it. Just five minutes of charging time gives you up to 90 minutes of listening, so if you forget to charge them, you can still get through your morning jog or workout. The PowerBeats Pro earbuds come in black, ivory, moss green, and navy blue so you can match them to your phone case or just pick your favorite color. They’re compatible with both Apple and Android smartphones.

Runner-Up Best for Running: Jabra Elite 75t

  • Buy on Amazon
  • Buy on Best Buy
  • Buy on Newegg.com

What We Like

  • Lightweight
  • Custom equalizer
  • Noise isolating

What We Don’t Like

  • Not ambidextrous

Another excellent choice for joggers and runners are the Jabra Elite 75t wireless earbuds. These earbuds weigh just 5.5 grams each and are engineered to fit almost all ear sizes. They include three different gels for a comfortable and secure fit. They connect to iOS and Android devices via Bluetooth and have a 10 meter maximum range, so you never lose connection, even if your phone is in a locker or across the house. With the Jabra app, you can use a custom sound equalizer to experience your music and podcasts as they were meant to be heard.

For calls, these earbuds have four microphones that isolate your voice from ambient noise and filter wind sound for clear calls. Physical buttons ensure accurate controls so you don’t accidentally skip a song or end a call if you bump the earbuds. They’re compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri voice commands for hands-free control over your mobile devices. With the charging case, you can get up to 28 hours of listening. You get 7.5 hours of listening without the case, and just 15 minutes of charging gives you 60 minutes of listening. The earbuds are both sweat and dust resistant to keep them in great working condition while you workout or in storage.

Final Verdict

If you’re an iPhone user, you’ll want the Airpods Pro for their solid noise cancellation and their great integration into the Apple ecosystem. If noise cancellation is the most important to you, you’ll be hard-pressed to do better than the Sony WF-100XM3’s best-in-class noise cancelling, with complete with control over sound profiles and ambient noise.

The Ultimate Wireless Earbuds Buying Guide

In 2020, wireless earbuds command a massive section of the audio market for several reasons. First, since more and more smartphones are doing away with the headphone jack, Bluetooth-connected headphones are a virtual necessity for those who listen to music on the go. Second, wireless earbuds are just a lot more convenient than pulling a tangled nest of wired headphones out of your bag.

Since Apple released the first generation of AirPods in 2016, flagship wireless headphones have largely gone the way of “true wireless”, so much of this guide will focus on the features and considerations when purchasing this style of headphones. These kinds of earbuds cut the cord completely, untethering each earbud so they fit into your respective ears. Others, usually sports earbuds, might keep a neckband for a secure fit and add features like water-and-sweatproofing along with various eartip sizes.

Does Wireless Compromise Sound Quality?

One other thing to consider before we jump into wireless specs: wired headphones are still where you’ll find the true audiophile headphones. While there are tons of amazing options in the wireless space, there is one thing that will naturally hold the audio quality back, and that’s the presence of Bluetooth transmission. That’s because with Bluetooth your audio is compressed in a way that makes it easier to transmit, but will naturally lose some information in the original file.

That doesn’t mean wireless earbuds can’t sound amazing—they certainly can with lossless protocols like aptX and LDAC. On top of that, there’s the fact that earbuds like the Airpods Pro come with noise-cancellation, letting them blot out background noise to improve your overall listening experience. It’s a feature that you rarely get on a wired pair of earbuds, and best-in-class noise canceling from companies like Sony and Bose are only available through their Bluetooth offerings.

Form Factor: How Much Cord To Cut?
Before getting into the nuts and bolts, it’s important to ask yourself this first question: how important is “true wireless” to you. Before true wireless even existed, consumers could purchase wireless headphones where a wire still remained to connect the two earbuds. That is still the case, and can in fact give you much more bang for your buck. If you don’t mind having a short wire between the earbuds, you’ll get amazing sound quality from options like the Bose SoundSport wireless earbuds or the Jaybird Tarah or X lines.

Many true wireless users are prone to a poor fit in the earbud department, so a non-true wireless earbud pair might be ideal so that if the headphones fall out, they will still be draped around your neck rather than falling to the ground. However, you tend to lose out on battery life with non-true-wireless earbuds because most don’t include the charging case so common with true wireless units.

Design: Keep Profile In Mind

The look of a pair of earbuds can go in a few directions: you’ll have the bud-and-stem design made popular by Apple, or you’ll have the oblong oval design seen on earbuds from Sony and Anker’s Soundcore brand. You can also get earbuds that are so low-profile that they virtually disappear into your ear, sticking out only marginally.

While many brands stick to a darker color for their earbuds, some brands stand out with a ton of color options (think: Samsung Galaxy Buds or the M&D MW series). While earbuds are, on some level, always earbuds, this is a category that has a striking amount of versatility. But this is subjective, so we recommend considering a lot of brands to find your style.

Samsung Galaxy Buds+

One common gripe about AirPods is that they don’t fit snugly into your ear—a fact that Apple responded to with the silicone-tipped AirPods Pro. The stakes for earbud fit become much higher too when you consider that true wireless earbuds can fall out of your ear and suffer actual damage when they hit the pavement. In general, most earbuds will come with interchangeable silicone tips (some even including additional foam options), so it’s important to really try out all the sizes before wearing them outside. Another consideration of fit and comfort is whether there is a second point of contact outside of that eartip.

While some of the most popular brands (Sony and Apple included) rely solely on a snug ear tip fit, other brands like Bose and Samsung offer an additional rubber wing that actually grabs the cartilage of your outer ear. This is a game-changer for those who can’t find a proper fit and is an important consideration.

One last point is on snugness: on the one hand, you want to make sure the earbuds are snug enough that they stay in and provide a good seal for better sound quality. However, this can be a little stifling for some listeners. If you don’t love a snug fit, and want a little breathability, you might consider Bose SoundSport’s pinched, breathable eartips, or the aforementioned Apple-style fit.
