If I wanted a pair of truly wireless headphones, I'd get he Jabra Elite 75t. After extensive research (which we'll get into below), the Jabras came out on top. The market of actually wireless earbuds is still relatively new but it has exploded over recent years thanks to models such as the Apple AirPods.
However, the Jabra's performed so well in just about every category, it would be remiss of us not to put them in first place.
The best wireless earbuds
The Jabra Elite 75t are the best wireless earbuds on the market with a fantastic 7.5 hour battery life plus an extra 28 hours with the charging case.
They're also water, sweat, and dust resistant meaning they're great for exercising. Plus, they also work with Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri, so you needn't worry about which phone you have.
What makes a TRULY wireless pair of earbuds?
Most of us use some type of headphones almost daily, whether it's at work to block out the incessant gum smacking of your coworker, or at the gym for a little inspiration. Unfortunately while all of our devices are losing their wires, headphones are only pretending to.
Don't believe me?
Check out this screenshot I took while browsing Amazon for “wireless earbuds.”
I added all the marked up red text for clarity. But as you can see, on a search result of 7 earbuds, 6 aren't actually wireless. For the most part they are a pair of earbuds…attached by a WIRE. I get it. They don't require a wire to plug into the device, but that just makes them pluginless (if that's even a word), or really just Bluetooth capable.
How we chose what to test
Instead of picking and choosing a select few, I've gone through every single pair of completely wireless headphones that I could find. As of writing this, that's a total of 21.
I imagine that number will grow over time, and I'll be sure to update it. For now, if you happen to know about a pair that I missed, let us know in the comments below.
So, that's the good news. The bad news is that of those 21, only 15 of them were a “pair” of earbuds. The other 6 were singular earpieces. It doesn't stop there though, as of right now only 5 of the 15 are available. The other 10 are currently in either a funding or pre-order status.
How to choose the right pair for you
Before just choosing the pair that looks the coolest, or even our favorite pick, there is one specific criteria to consider: purpose.
Purpose. What exactly are you going to be using these headphones for? Do you want to track your heart rate while running? Are you just looking for some earbuds that can make phone calls? Or maybe you just need something small to carry while you travel?
