1. Best price quality wireless headphones

Some general considerations of the comparison of the two great families of wireless headphones, the headband and the in-ear.

Wireless over- ear headphones: better sound quality, more comfortable, the battery lasts longer, they serve better to isolate themselves, they cannot get wet, they take up space and give heat. They would be mainly to watch TV, listen to music, to work or study , for long trips and for public transport in large cities.

In-ear wireless headphones: light, small, discreet and practical. Those that are introduced into the ear canal are the ones with the best passive noise cancellation. Those that are open and only rest on the ear, are the most comfortable of all. Ideal for day to day and sports.

10 Enacfire G20

Cheap and practical for all types of use.

The Enacfire G20s offer good sound at low and medium volumes . But if you turn them up a lot, the high tones are not clear and the lows and bass are not very successful.

No active noise cancellation ( ANC ), but as they are well fitted they get a good passive cancellation to isolate you from the ambient noise and by the way, avoid the distressing feeling that they are going to fall. And this, together with the fact that they are submersible ( IPX8 ), make them a good option for athletes , who can pour water over their heads to cool off or shower with them. 

Do you do high intensity sports, like HIIT or Crossfit? 

Then you are going to need the Enacfire E60 that have the same characteristics but with more grip and isolation.

Now the most surprising.

With the hands-free function, say “Hey Siri” or “OK Google” to get information on traffic, the weather, an event or place to eat, call a contact or schedule a meeting … But the thing doesn’t end here, Ask Alexa or Google Home while you are on your way home to turn on the TV or music, turn on lights, heating or air conditioning, remove the alarm, …

And if you spend the day on the phone, they will be very useful, both for their comfort and because they have external noise cancellation, so that your voice is heard loud and clear . But there is still more, you can pair 2 devices at the same time (multipoint), very practical because as they have no delay between the image and the sound  ( latency ) you can take a course on the PC or watch a movie on TV and receive calls of the mobile.

Although they do not stop playback when you take them off, it does not matter much because with the touch control on the headset you can change or stop the song, adjust the volume and reject or answer calls. 

Bluetooth version 5.0 for good connectivity and compatibility with Android and iOS and with  the best smartwatches .

The battery lasts 8 hours , plus another 40 using the case as a charging station, very useful for long trips where you cannot charge them. They have fast charging, with 10 minutes you get 1 hour of audio , very practical aspect, because I don’t know about you, but it makes me mad when I get home to run and the headphones are out of battery.

They are charged in the case with a micro USB cable. The truth is that I would prefer the standard USB type C which is faster and you have them anywhere.

They do not have an App. 

In conclusion, cheap wireless headphones with good sound quality, very practical for all uses . 

9 Mpow H19 IPO

Comfortable and with good sound quality for teleworking or watching TV .

The sound quality is fine , although at very high volumes the tones are not clean and the bass is perceived somewhat distorted. Using them with cable the sound improves significantly.

The Mpow H19 IPOs have active noise cancellation . You will be able to appreciate the effects with serious and constant sounds such as traffic, subway, airplane engines, works …, with the rest, very little. Where if the cancellation works better is with the hands-free in the calls.

Do you have to telework for a few days and hold online meetings? 

The connection with PCs is fast and stable, and the sound in Teams, Zoom or Skype is especially good. Also, as they allow two devices to be paired , if you receive a call while you are in an online meeting, you can answer it.

Compatible with iOS and Android and Bluetooth 5.0 version, good choice for audiovisual content on mobile or TV because  no latency and on comfortable.  The cushions are soft, soft and breathable, cover the entire ear and fit perfectly to the face. Foldable to store them in tight spaces.

They are controlled with voice assistants and buttons . They don’t have sensors to automatically stop playback when you take them off, and they’re not compatible with smart speakers. They also do not have an App.

Autonomy of 30 hours and fast charge of 10 minutes for 2 hours of use . The charging cable is micro USB.

In short, a good price wireless headband headphones with sound quality, ideal for teleworking or watching TV .

8 Tronsmart Apollo Bold

A lot of autonomy and a great value for money. Ideal to go by bike or scooter.

The sound is of good quality but with some nuances. The treble is clear, although at very high volumes it is not very precise and does not seem natural, while the bass should be adjusted with an equalizer so that they are not so marked.

If you are thinking of using the Tronsmart Apollo Bold to go by bicycle or skateboard,  I think they could be a good option, because they achieve good passive noise cancellation, which you can also complement with active cancellation or ambient mode, allowing the sound to reach you. exterior necessary to avoid a scare . 

For sports they would also be advisable since they are resistant to sweat and rain (IP45), comfortable and fit well, avoiding the feeling that they will fall at any time. In addition, they are compatible with the best sports smartwatches .

Hands-free microphones with active ambient sound cancellation for clear, loud sound during calls and for communication with voice assistants Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, and Google Home. 

Bluetooth 5.0 connection that is fast and stable to connect to any device where you can watch videos, series or movies (YouTube, Netflix, HBO … ), because they have no latency and the sound reaches extremely high volumes. And if they call you, you can answer because you can also have them paired with your mobile.

With the touch panel of the headphones you can handle them completely but it will take you some time because they are too sensitive. They have proximity detector to stop hearing when you remove a headset . At the moment they do not have an App although the brand has reported that it will soon be available and will have an equalizer.

Autonomy of 10 hours and an additional 30 using the box to recharge them. They also have a 10 minute fast charge to get 1 hour of audio. The box is large, made of materials with a juta quality and with USB type C connection.

In short, wireless headphones with good sound, a lot of autonomy and an excellent value for money . 

7 Huawei FreeBuds 3

Good value for money, comfortable and practical for day to day .

The sound quality is good , the bass a little tight so sometimes it is not well distinguished. They highlight the voices that are heard especially clear, so they would be a good option for listening to podcasts and for phone calls . 

It has intelligent active noise cancellation that adjusts automatically as circumstances change, but it is not the best, and most of the time you will need to keep it at its highest level to feel the effect. 

The Huawei FreeBuds 3 are very light and with an open design without passive isolation that makes them extremely comfortable, even forgetting that you are wearing them, so they would be perfect if you plan to use them for a long time.

Despite being IPX4 resistant to sweat and rain, I would not recommend them for sports with sudden movements because they give a certain feeling that they could fall.

The control is tactile except the volume and hang up calls that you will have to do from your mobile or smartwatch. Some actions can be performed by Google Assistant. 

Bluetooth 5.1 for fast pairing and stability of the connection with Android and iOS devices, although with the latter they lose usability. With Android versions 10 and 11 the audio will stop when you remove them from your ear, and for the finest with the sound, an App with equalizer, customization of noise cancellation and touch controls , among other possibilities. 

They are not compatible with smart speakers (Alexa or Google Home) and cannot be paired to multiple devices at the same time.

The battery lasts 4 hours and an additional 20 hours with the case. They also have a fast charge of 20 minutes to get 2 hours of use. The case has a USB Type-C cable connection and the possibility of Qi wireless charging . 

Recently the Freebuds Pro have come out with these improvements:

  • More powerful and clearer sound, enhancing the experience for music
  • Much more efficient active noise cancellation
  • Greater clarity in voices and reduced ambient noise in calls
  • 7 hour battery life
  • Bluetooth 5.2 
  • Pairing 2 devices at the same time 

In short, very comfortable wireless headphones, with good sound quality, ideal for long phone calls and listening to podcasts .

6 Samsung Galaxy Buds

Quality natural sound for small, comfortable, light and versatile headphones .

Natural and quality sound but that needs to reinforce the bass and bass to get more body, something that you can do from the equalizer and that will partly serve to mitigate the absence of active noise cancellation. 

The sound of the voices is very good , ideal for use as a hands-free device, perhaps the isolation from the outside is not perfect for calls with a lot of ambient noise.   

The Samsung Galaxy Buds are small, light and comfortable , they fit well in the ear to create good passive isolation and avoid the sensation of falling. They have IPX2 protection to resist sweat and rain, so you can use them to exercise .

Simple to control through an App, the Bixby or Google Assistant voice assistants and touch panels, which when they require 3 touches are complicated, although being able to customize them is not so important. To stop the audio you have to remove the 2 headphones. They are not compatible with smart speakers.

Bluetooth 5.0 for a fast and stable connection with Android and iOS devices, although with the latter they have less possibilities. They allow you to connect 2 devices at the same time, useful to watch TV or videos on the internet since they have no latency and be aware of calls.

Box that supports Qi wireless charging and USB type C cable. The autonomy is 6 hours and another additional recharge with the box, as well as a fast charge of 15 minutes for 1.5 hours of use.

For the most exquisite with sound and voices in calls there are the Galaxy Buds + , which also has double the battery. 

In conclusion, wireless headphones with good sound quality,  small, light and comfortable for any use .

5 Bose SoundSport Free


For athletes
 who want the best sound quality.

As expected from the Bose brand, the sound quality is very good even at maximum volume . The highs are clear and the lows are deep.

Available in various colors.

A pity that they do not have noise cancellation to isolate themselves and enjoy music relaxed when there is noise pollution, although to mitigate it they have automatic equalization. They would be a good option for running, walking, cycling or scooter without being in danger .

For me, the Bose SoundSport Free would be the best choice for sports , because in addition to being IPX 4 certified for rain and sweat, they fit and hold extraordinarily well in all ears, allowing high intensity exercises. Good connectivity with the best sports watches .

I am not entirely convinced that they stick out of the ear, although at least aesthetically they are pretty.

In handsfree only the right earbud works, and although the microphone is good , since it does not have ambient sound cancellation it would not be the best option for phone calls with background noise. They don’t stop the audio when you take them off.

Bluetooth 4.2 with good connectivity and stability , except for watching audiovisual content when paired with older devices with which some users complain of latency. 

They are managed with an App compatible with Android and iOS , with buttons that are somewhat hard and with the voice assistant. They do not pair to multiple devices at the same time, nor are they compatible with smart speakers. 

They are charged in the case with a micro USB cable. It has an autonomy of 5 hours and 2 additional recharges with the case. They also have fast charging of 15 minutes for 45 minutes of listening. 

In short, wireless headphones with first-rate sound for sports music lovers .

4 Sony WF1000XM3

The best sound quality in wireless in-ear headphones. I deales to listen to music .

The sound quality is superior, balanced, enveloping and clear , without distortion of any kind, at the level of many headband headphones. The voices for their part are clear, they have strength and warmth. 

Ideal headphones to enjoy relaxed listening to all kinds of music thanks to an extraordinary noise cancellation that allows you to completely isolate yourself.

With the hands-free function you can take calls, you will hear loud and clear , the same does not happen with who is on the other side if there is outside noise or wind, since the isolation for the microphone is not entirely effective.

The most comfortable thing is to handle the Sony WF1000XM3 with voice assistants, but you can also from the touch surface or from the Sony Headphones Connect App , which for me is the best on the market. It has an equalizer,  20 levels of active noise cancellation and an adaptive sound profile , which detects where you are (office, home, street, the subway, …) and what you do (sports, walking, sitting …) , to automatically adjust the ambient sound it lets in. 

Note that it is practical if you have children who interrupt continuously or to work in a team , the playback stops when you take off a headset and resumes when you put it back on. And not only that, a function that I especially like, raising the right hand and placing it on the earphone, the playback stops for a few seconds and resumes with very low sound to be able to talk.  

They have 7 pads to adapt to all types of ears . Despite this, the support and ergonomics are not their strong suit, some users comment that they do not fit well in their ear canal and they have the feeling that they are going to fall. They are not resistant to sweat, rain …

Bluetooth 5.0 for a fast and stable connection and 100% compatible with iOS and Android. They work well to watch TV or videos on your mobile, tablet or PC , but since they are not multipoint you will not be able to have them also paired with the mobile to use the hands-free. 

The battery lasts 7 hours and the box allows 3 additional charges. They have a fast 10 minute charge to get 1.5 hours of audio. The charging mechanism is via USB type C cable.

In short, the in-ear wireless headphones with the best sound quality , which  will delight those who go listening to music all day.

3 Apple AirPods 2

Maximum comfort and usability for day to day . Good option for work and calls.

The sound quality is good in terms of clarity and power . The weakest point is the forcefulness and strength of the bass that also, being open, not having any noise cancellation, or equalizer, is more appreciated.

The best way to control the AirPods 2 is with Siri , but if you prefer you have an App or the touch panel with forward, backward, pause or play, but not volume. When you take off a headset the sound stops. 

The reduction of external noise from the microphones is very successful, you will be able to talk to Siri in any situation , even whisper not to disturb, very practical in museums, libraries, study rooms or at work. 

The hands-free function for calls is excellent, you will hear and be heard loud and clear even with outside noise or wind . In addition, since they are open, light and very comfortable, they make you forget that you are wearing them, so if you are on the phone all day they will be very practical .

They have a fast and stable Bluetooth 5.0 connection compatible with any device, but without a doubt who they understand best is with the iPhone, Apple Watch or Mac . No latency to watch videos or movies, moreover, after the last update they have incorporated the spatial audio function for greater realism, ideal in action movies . They cannot be paired with multiple devices at the same time.  

They are not resistant to rain, splashes, sweat …, this together with the fact that they are open makes them not the most suitable for sports. 

5 hour battery life and up to 24 hours with the charging case. They have a fast charge of 15 minutes for 2.5 hours of audio. The charger is with a USB type C cable. 

If you want greater isolation with headphones that fit the ear canal and totally avoid the sensation of falling, with noise cancellation and resistant to sweat and water (IPX4) for sports, you will have to bet on the AirPods Pro .

In conclusion, very comfortable and practical wireless headphones , perfect for day-to-day, work and calls , ideal for Apple fans.

The sound is smooth, without harshness and with harmony between all the tones. The lows and mids are deep but with control and without distortion, while the highs have a great level of detail, they are strong and with intensity, but at the same time clear and firm. 

For me, the  Sony WH1000XM3  are the ones with the best active noise cancellation for any situation (plane, subway, bus, street with traffic, bar, screaming children, …).

Soft, cuddly pads, made of top quality materials and that adapt perfectly to the face, for maximum comfort even when you wear many hours . They fully cover the ear for passive noise cancellation that isolates quite well from the outside . They are foldable.

They would therefore be an option to be considered by people who travel a lot , who frequently use public transport or work in offices without good insulation. Ideal for those who most need silence to concentrate when working or studying .

With the adaptive sound function, the microphone is activated so that outside noise enters, the headphones adapt the sound level automatically according to the conditions. It is especially necessary when we go by bike or scooter . 

They are easily operated with voice assistants, using buttons and a touch panel or with the Sony Headphones Connect App available for Android and iOS,  which has an equalizer and customization of noise cancellation and adaptive sound. 

It detects when you raise your right hand to the height of the headphones to deactivate the noise cancellation and lower the volume, allowing you to have a conversation, very useful because they do not stop the playback when you take them off.

Hands-free at a good level but with the possibility of improving the microphone in circumstances of outside noise.

Bluetooth 4.2 without latency to watch movies or videos on TV, PC, mobile phones or tablets . They cannot connect to multiple devices at the same time. 

Autonomy of 38 hours and fast charge of 10 minutes for 3 hours of use . USB type C charging cable.

If you want the latest from Sony, the WH1000XM4 has recently come out featuring the following enhancements:

  • Greater sound fidelity. The tones are cleaner.
  • Detect if you start talking to stop playback and let in ambient sound, then continue playing.
  • They stop playback when you take them off and resume when you put them on.
  • They automatically adapt the noise cancellation according to where we are and our actions.
  • Bluetooth 5.0 for better connectivity.  
  • Possibility of connecting them to 2 devices at the same time. 
  • On calls they hear us more clearly and with less ambient noise. 

In short, the wireless headphones with the best active noise cancellation, which will surprise music lovers and audiophiles with their sound quality .

4. Guide to buying the best wireless headphones

I’m not going to bore you with a thousand specs and technical features. Here are just the top practicalities you should consider in order to buy the best wireless headphones for your needs. 

Headphone types

There are 2 main families: headband headphones and in ear headphones. Then within each one there are several types. Let’s see them, along with their main advantages and disadvantages. 

Headband wireless headphones: Those that are joined by a headband that passes over the head, we go for a lifetime. Within these you have the on-ear or supraaural that stick to the ear but do not cover it and the over-ear or circumaural that do cover the ear completely.

In-ear wireless headphones: They are the ones that we introduce into the pavilion and ear canal. Among these are the intraaurals that penetrate the ear canal and the button ones that are more open and are inserted only in the auditory pinna. 

If we compare the headband with the in-ear ones, the former

offer better sound quality , isolate much more from outside noise, are usually more comfortable and are not waterproof. They are also larger and heavier and warm.  

The in ear, on the other hand, are small, light, practical and discreet . In addition, those that do not enter the ear canal and are more open like AirPods, are the coolest and most comfortable of all. Intra-aurals are the ones with the best passive sound cancellation. 

Headbands would generally be better for watching movies and videos, listening to music, long trips, working or studying, and for traveling public transport in large cities. 

I would recommend them in ear for day-to-day, calls and sports . 

Sound quality

The quality of the sound is influenced by many things and a large majority of techniques that would bore you. But there are 3 easy-to-look aspects with a lot of influence on sound quality : 

  • Bluetooth: The higher the version the better, below 4.1 it would not be highly recommended.
  • Bluetooth codec: These are the softwares that prepare the audio data packets transmitted by bluetooth. The best are the LHDC, LDAC (Sony) and AptX Adaptive. 
  • Diaphragm or drivers: it is the component that converts electrical signals into sound, that is, what creates sound. As a general rule, the bigger the driver, the better , although many other things influence a quality sound. In ear headphones are usually between 8 – 16 mm and headband headphones between 20 – 50 mm . If you want to know more you can go to this article . 

In relation to Bluetooth,  having multipoint technology to pair with several devices at the same time is  very useful. It will allow you to receive calls or notifications from your mobile while you watch TV, listen to music … 

Latency

Latency is the delay that occurs between when you view the image and the sound reaches you, that is, when we say that the image and the sound are not in rhythm. 

To avoid latency you have to check the version and codec of Bluetooth . 

All the models that I have brought you to this article have an optimal latency to consume audiovisual content . 

Comfort

Of course, this is a vitally important aspect, it will determine to a large extent that you use your wireless headphones. And if you are in this article, it is because comfort is important to you. 

In ear headphones, the most important for comfort is the ergonomics, size and materials of the pads that are inserted into the ear. Look for headphones that have multiple ear pads of different sizes and shapes so that they fit snugly in your ear without distracting , and avoid the feeling that they are going to fall off. The material must be flexible and soft like silicone or hybrids between silicone and foam (avoid only foam).

In the headband headphones, make sure that they are not too heavy (250-270 grams), nor too large (15 – 20 cm) and that they are foldable. The pads that are padded, soft and soft and that breathe . The materials should be leather or synthetic leather, avoid fabric and microfibers.

Cancellation of ambient noise

One of the most valued aspects of wireless headphones, it allows an immersion in sound and enjoy without any interruption or annoyance by being isolated from outside noise. 

Very popular function for long trips by plane or train, for work and study, for urban public transport and for watching movies at home. 

Noise cancellation can be active (ANC) or passive. Let’s see what they consist of.

Active or ANC (Active Noise Canceling): The headphones incorporate a series of microphones that emit sound waves opposite to those of the external noise with which they are mixed to produce silence.  

The quality of this technology is very uneven between the different models, generally those cheaper have little achieved, and may even bother generating a buzzing or some pressure in the ears.  

One aspect that could be important depending on what you want the headphones for, is that they have various levels of active noise cancellation so as not to be totally isolated , since it could be dangerous, for example, if you are going to use them to ride a bike or scooter.   

Passive: It is the one that is produced by the simple fact of plugging our ear, either globally as over-ear or circumaural headband headphones do, or by plugging only the ear canal as do in-ear in-ear headphones , which are the they get better passive noise cancellation . 

Battery duration

Another important question to make the right purchase of headphones that you use frequently. The more autonomy they have, the greater availability of use and the more difficult it will be for them to leave you lying down .

And another important aspect is that they have fast charging, which means that by charging them for a few minutes you can use them for a while, in this way they will not limit you at any time. Fast charging is usually between 10 – 20 minutes to get between 45 – 180 minutes . 

In-ear headphones have a case or box that is their charging station. When the battery in the headphones runs out, the case provides additional recharges until its own battery runs out, then having to connect the case to the mains to charge it. 

Headband headphones connect directly to the mains.

The connection to the electrical network is by USB type C cable which is the standard of most devices, or by micro USB cable which is slower and will force you to carry the cable with the headphones to charge them. 

The latest in-ear headphones have Qi wireless charging . 

Hands-free: Calls and voice assistants

One of the issues to which less attention is paid when it comes to choosing a wireless headset but which ends up being used a lot and being highly valued. Because every day we spend more time on the phone and it is especially comfortable to talk without the mobile in hand . 

If you plan to use this feature outdoors or in places with noise pollution , see that it has active sound cancellation for calls .     

And not only for that, but also in recent years virtual voice assistants (Siri, Google Assistant, Alexa, Google Home …) are taking a leading role in our lives due to the development of artificial intelligence. Their ability to learn, understand and adapt to the user and their habits evolves very quickly, and they are increasingly useful in a greater number of situations. 

Applications and equalization

The best wireless headphones have applications from which you can manage them, customize the touch controls, know the remaining battery, adjust the sound to your liking with the equalizer….

For people who are more demanding with sound, it would be recommended that the headphones have a good equalizer  with which to fine-tune the tones and adapt them to each musical style.
