The very first Bluetooth earbuds were far from impressive. Even today, low-quality wireless Bluetooth devices exist, and they are plagued by (i) intermittent connection drops, (ii) poor sound quality, (iii) poor fit around the head, and (iv) short wireless range. This is why it is important to do some homework before buying a pair of wireless earbuds. The Review of the 10 BEST Bluetooth Earbuds lists the most budget friendly and high-quality in-ear stereo headphones helping consumers weed out poor-quality earbuds.

The wireless earbuds listed on come from popular brands like JayBird, LG Electronics, Plantronics, Motorola, JLab and GOgroove.

The 10 criteria used to identify the 10 BEST earbuds explained:

The review takes into consideration 10 criteria when deciding between the better Bluetooth earbuds and the not so good models. Some of the features they consider are (i) audio quality, (ii) moisture resistance/sweat-proof features, (iii) lightness in weight, (iv) availability of a built-in microphone, (v) wireless range, (vi) battery life (audio playback/talk time and standby time), (vii) poor fit/not customizable, (viii) availability of built-in controllers for volume, changing tracks etc., (ix) ability to stream music from android and iOS mobile apps, and (x) reviews from actual users. There aren’t many earphones that fulfill all of the above 10 criteria. But when a particular pair does fulfill most of the above conditions, they are usually expensive. For example, the JayBird BlueBuds X Sport is a very good pair of BT earbuds, however, it’s priced at over $150. Considering that most people looking to buy wireless buds want to use them for working out or running, not everybody is willing to invest $100 upwards on a pair of headphones. This is why the review also lists a couple of budget-friendly models of earbuds. This is why it is a very useful read for anyone looking to buy a pair of Bluetooth earphones.

In addition to reviewing the best wireless earbuds (in-ear headphones), they also review the best around-the-ear stereo headphones and on-ear stereo headphones in both Bluetooth and wired headphone categories.

There is a common misconception that Bluetooth enabled earphones are never as good as corded headphones. This is not true anymore with newest headphones. Bluetooth technology also has seen considerable developments in the recent past and is now being used for communication between various devices. Studies have shown that all 3 classes of frequencies, namely, bass, mid-range, and treble, can be transmitted with high precision through Bluetooth as good as with cords/wires. Whether wired or wireless, audio-quality from earbuds is generally inferior to that from large around-the-ear or on-ear headphones. This is because of the difference of the driver-size. For example, Audio-Technica ATH-M50 Professional Studio Monitor Headphones have 45 mm large-aperture drivers with neodymium magnet systems producing professional-grade audio. In contrast, Plantronics BackBeat GO range of Bluetooth earphones have 6 – 14 mm speaker drivers. This is why the sound quality on earbuds is generally less than that of large headphones. However, considering the relative advantages of wireless earbuds such as lightness in weight (generally less than 2 ounces) and lack of messy cords that can get tangled when working out, people are prepared to compromise on the audio quality. However, this doesn’t mean that one should buy a random pair of Bluetooth earphones because there is a large variation of sound quality and additional features among the dozens of models available in today’s market. This is all the more reason why one must study the list of TOP 10 wireless earphones on the above review.

In addition to reviewing the best Bluetooth earbuds, they also review the best active and passive noise cancelling headphones in today’s market. However, they don’t recommend noise cancelling headphones for workouts, especially when jogging on the streets. They emphasize that earbuds that completely block outside noises should not be worn by those who walk/run outdoors.
