Apple AirPods Pro

Best High-End True Wireless Earbuds

Why we like it: Unlike its other stylish looking headphones, the Apple AirPods Pro true wireless earbuds compromise a bit on aesthetics, but still maintains a good balance between character and raw power.

While many would question the pricing of these high-end headphones, these headphones are a powerhouse in the strongest sense of the word. Inside the AirPods Pro, Apple integrated the Apple H1 chip.

The sound is rendered with accuracy. The audio reproduction stays faithful to the original audio. The low Bluetooth latency is low, making the AirPods Pro suitable for listening high bitrate music or movies on your smartphone, desktop computer, or iMac.

The latency that measures around 160 milliseconds is low enough to allow you to play games on iPhone and iPad effortlessly. The low battery that possesses seems to be the only fault of these premium true wireless earbuds.

Verdict

In the end, we’re extremely positive about Apple’s AirPods Pro, which revealed as high-quality true wireless in-ears that not only sound brilliant but also include a quality noise-canceling system. The A.N.C might not be as effective as that of Sony WF-1000XM3 or Bose QuietComfort 20. Still, for an Apple user, this device guarantees the most satisfactory experience via smart gestures, wireless charging through the Qi standard, and its remarkable comfort.

Excellent Price/Quality - TWS Sport Headphones under $200

Why we like it: The truly wireless Elite 65t from Jabra is an essential sporting in-ear headphones that can be worn to enjoy a session of workout thoroughly in the gym or running in the park. These headphones won’t annoy with its poor stability, whereas the ergonomics deliver a satisfying fit.

For under $200, Jabra delivers an extended array of positive elements that make the Elite 65 the best overall true wireless earbuds, which also excel in sports environments.

The partly made of aluminum framework conveys sturdiness, whereas the plastic doesn’t give any sensation of low quality, nor poor finish. The whole is classy and professional, housing a set of four integrated microphones that displays high-reliability thanks to the wind noise reduction.

The sound benefits from fantastic sound reproduction and exceptional intelligibility in the mid-range, just like the microphone. The lower range of the sound spectrum consists of voluminous basses that feel intriguing, trebles also feel emphasized presenting a V-shaped sound signature that slightly lacks sound precision.

Sony WF-1000XM3

Best Noise-Canceling True Wireless Earbuds

Why we like it: With the WF-1000XM3, Sony impresses the public with a pair of premium noise-canceling true wireless earbuds. A high-end product that includes excellent audio representation, powerful active noise cancelling and two codecs, AAC and SBC, that powers the wireless communication to handle high-bit rate audio transmission, thus provide you with better sound quality and lower latency.

We think of WF-1000XM3’s application as intuitive and easy to use, though somewhat lackluster in terms of sound personalization, the equalizer only offers 5 frequency bands that you can adjust. Good thing that the bass sound is one of the best, enjoying a rather marked sound signature but an overall balanced outcome. The lower frequencies are present and easily heard; the mids don’t get rushed over by the warm basses, which sound very flattering to the ear.

For the purpose of listening to music, each earpiece is independent in terms of connection; thus, there is no master-slave relationship that would ruin the synchronization between each earpiece.

When it comes to autonomy and active noise reduction, the WF-1000XM3 earbuds are better equipped than the Airpods Pro, with a battery life of up to 8 hours as well as a more effective active noise cancelling system. Of course, the noise reduction in both passive and active modes is not comparable to that of most over-ear headphones with A.N.C. However, against other true wireless earbuds, many can confirm that Sony’s capacity to silence the environment is at the top.

Verdict

After using the WF-1000XM3 true wireless in-ears from Sony for a week, we concluded that these are the best active noise cancelling true wireless earbuds that your money can buy. They impose silence and feature remarkable sound quality.

Key Features

  • Extremely complex and versatile
  • Accurate 3D audio imaging
  • Resourceful sound spectrum with excellent bass and crystal clear sound
  • Fairly precise detatchable microphone

Beats Powerbeats Pro

True Wireless Sport Earbuds for Apple users

Why we like it:

Apple has several quality true wireless earphones in its catalog, the Powerbeats Pro from their subsidiary company Beats are another great pair of true wireless in-ear headphones. The Powerbeats Pro deliver exemplary comfort and stability, in addition to the enduring autonomy of 9 hours and stylish design, the in-ears also have integrated Apple’s H1 mobile audio chip, the same processor found in the AirPods (2nd generation).

The sound is appealing, embracing a good sound reproduction unlike many other true wireless in-ear headphones. The bass is rendered with accuracy and is particularly emphasized but also well defined, ensuring a positive effect on the soundstage, depth and a slight feeling of pressure. The audio profile is pleasant and we really dig it, the presence of the middle frequencies is beautiful and the sound representation in this area is properly done, perfectly intelligible vocals as well as flawless harmonic distortion rate.

The Powerbeats Pro received a good manufacturing; the hulls made of plastic are solid, and so are the hooks that keep your earphones in place. Even though they don’t include a “HearThrough” type of feature similar to that of Jabra Elite 75t that allows you to be perceptible of ambient sounds, the earbuds are never slip out of your ears and are water and sweat resistant which is the standard for most exercising earbuds.

Verdict

To conclude, the Powerbeats Pro will clearly appeal to the people who enjoy an energetic and lively sound profile. The earbuds deliver powerful sound, reliable wireless connection and intuitive management. The price isn’t the most convenient aspect of the Powerbeats Pro, but their performance is clearly higher than that of most true wireless headphones.
