Top 10 Best Truly Wireless Earbuds - September 2018

With many smartphone makers opting to get rid of the headphone jack, it has helped Bluetooth headphones really take off. And now we are seeing plenty more truly wireless headphones coming out. Truly wireless are earbuds that don't have a cord that run between them, and the early models did have some issues with keeping both earbuds connected, but that is (generally) no longer an issue. There are a ton of great truly wireless headphones on the market right now, and it can be tough to figure out which ones are the best to pick up. So we have rounded up the top 10 best truly wireless headphones that are currently available.

One of the favorites on this list is the Jabra Elite 65t. Now Jabra is already well-known for its great sounding audio, and these don't disappoint when it comes to audio. But it also does not disappoint when it comes to battery life. Offering five hours on a single charge, which is a bit more than the competition - most sport around three to four hours. But Jabra also has Alexa built-in, allowing you to speak to Alexa through your headphones, which is definitely a nice feature to have here. These come in a few different colors, though the blue and gold color do look pretty good (and are also the top seller for Jabra).

It's important to note that many of these truly wireless headphones will list a higher battery life number, and that's because they are including the carrying case which has a battery built-in. So ZOLO by Anker, will tout that it can do 48 hours of battery life. But that is actually not true. There is about three and half hours run time on a single charge, but the battery in the carrying case can get you up to 48 hours. So it's important to read both numbers.

Samsung Gear IconX (2018 Edition) - (Amazon)

This pair of headphones from Samsung is definitely worth picking up. These are the Gear IconX (2018 Edition) which are truly wireless and sport around four hours of battery life. The included carrying case will get you a bit more battery life here, but it's still four hours on a single charge. Samsung also allows you to store music on the Gear IconX which can extend the battery life too.

Beoplay E8 Premium Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones - (Amazon)

The Beoplay E8 are perhaps the most premium pair of truly wireless headphones on this list (and a premium price comes along with it). If you've used B&O headphones before, then you know what to expect here. Some really great sounding audio, as well as some great looking earbuds.

Bose SoundSport Free Truly Wireless Sport Headphones - (Amazon)

Bose' SoundSport Free are another pretty popular pair of truly wireless headphones, and that's because they sport the Bose name. These are fairly large, compared to the others on this list, and that's due to the larger drivers that Bose is using. Not necessarily because there is a bigger battery - these only last around five hours of continuous playback.

Jabra Elite Active 65t - (Amazon)

Jabra's Elite 65t are also a great pair of truly wireless earbuds, but these have something that others on this list do not, and that is Alexa built-in. So you can talk to Alexa without anyone hearing what she says back to you. You can also tell her to adjust the music without pulling out your phone which is a nice feature.

LEZII True Wireless Sport Bluetooth V4.2 Earbuds - (Amazon)

These are probably some of the cheapest, truly wireless earbuds on the market right now, coming in at under $50. But these do work with Bluetooth 4.2, and battery life is only around 2 hours depending on what you're doing with them. There is an included case which can charge them around 3-4 times. But the battery life isn't spectacular here, and that is why these are cheaper.

JLab Audio Epic Air True Wireless 4.1 Sport Earbuds - (Amazon)

Now if you're wanting a pair of truly wireless earbuds that can last the longest on a single charge, JLab has you covered. The Epic Air can last 7 hours on a single charge, and with the included charging case, you can get an additional 30 hours of playback. Which is industry leading, but the sound quality is also on point with the JLab Audio Epic Air.

Jaybird RUN True Wireless Headphones - (Amazon)

These are some of the more expensive ones out there, but definitely worth the money. The Jaybird RUN are smaller earbuds, but they are made for runners. So that means that they are not going to fall out of your ears when you are running and working out. Additionally, these can get around 4 to 6 hours on a charge and with the included carrying case, you can get another 12-16 hours.

JBL Free Truly Wireless In-Ear Headphones - (Amazon)

JBL also joined the truly wireless revolution late last year, with the JBL Free. These are actually pretty cheap, coming in at around $150 (normally) and offer that iconic JBL sound that you've come to expect from JBL's products. These offer up around 5 hours of battery life on a single charge, and with the included battery case, you can get another 10-15 hours of charging.

ZOLO by Anker Liberty Total-Wireless Earphones - (Amazon)

Anker launched a new audio brand recently, ZOLO, and its first product was the Liberty truly wireless headphones. These offer up premium sound, for under $100. Using graphene drivers, the Zolo Liberty are able to offer up some great sound while also offering up great battery life. You'll get around 3.5 hours on a charge, but the included case can get you 24 hours of battery life.

SOL REPUBLIC Amps Air Totally Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds - (Amazon)

SOL REPUBLIC has a great pair of truly wireless earbuds here, which offer up great sound and even have a built-in equalizer, so you can get even better sound. The battery isn't that great, lasting around 3 hours, but that should be long enough for a gym or running session. The included case can charge these about 15 times, so there's plenty of juice to keep you going for a while here.
