Whether you’re driving, going to the gym, or relaxing on a sunny day by the beach, the right pair of headphones will remain in place and deliver great sound.
I’d be forgiven for thinking that wireless headphones aren’t as good as the best headphones because Bluetooth wasn’t the best way to listen to your favorite music a couple of years ago.
The Bluetooth headphones at that time didn’t sound as good as their wired counterparts, they suffered from connectivity problems, and they were known to have short battery life.
Thankfully time has changed. Bluetooth headphones are quickly becoming the most popular music listening tool due to advancements in wireless transmission standards, such as aptX and battery technology advances. And many of the best headphones have wireless connectivity. Scroll down to see our guide dedicated to the best real wireless headphones that you can buy in 2020.
Sony didn’t have a great wireless headphone player (AirPod style), but this latest WF-1000XM3 model could change that. While this pair of headphones isn’t inexpensive, these are the best wireless headphones in this price range when it comes to sound quality, which equals and maybe even surpass the quality and performance of the most expensive rivals.
The only downside is that headphones from the WF-1000XM3 are not considered sweat-resistant or water-resistant headphones. That said, I used them without any issue for light workouts with a bit of sweat in the gym. They use Bluetooth 5.0 with AAC but not aptX support.
Cambridge Audio Melomania 1
Cambridge audio isn’t just about computers with high fidelity. Melomania 1 is the first truly wireless headphones of the company, and are quite special for the price. These headphones are available in black or white and have their own pocket case.
It is an organized design, which acts as a charger that provides an additional 36 hours of power. It amounts to 45 hours of continuous use in addition to the nine hours which you get when the headphones are fully closed!
Every button has a 5.8 mm graphene sensor, a triple-core processor (with AAC and aptX audio codec support), a beam-forming microphone for calls, or clearer conversations with Siri / Google Assistant, plus Bluetooth 5.0. Classification IPX5 means they are also water-and sudden resistant.
Depending on your ears, the transition can be a little difficult, but once in place, you’ll be rewarded with a rich sound. Specific voices, thus supplying the sound stage with clarity and coherence.
Optoma NuForce BE Sport4
Wireless headphones are uncommon in NuForce BE Sport4: headphones that adapt to almost any situation, whether you run them out or use them in the area.
These are suitable for sport, though all city residents should find their light versatility and impressive acoustic isolation very attractive as well.
Apple AirPods Pro
Even though they don’t seem as amazing as you might think, a $249 model, the AirPods Pro is still a great pair of absolutely wireless headphones. This is due in large part to its winners in design and modification, improved bass efficiency, efficient noise cancelation, and excellent quality of the call.
Yeah, they’re pricey at $250, but the good news is you’re going to use them so often that you’re definitely running out of power, it’s degrading over time, and it’s not replaceable, and you’re going to have to buy a new pair in 18-24 months when you’re not losing them first.
JBL Reflect Flow
Those are some of the best on the market if you’re looking for sports headphones. JBL is a huge success when it comes to wireless sports headphones, and with the Under Armor flash as its precursor, the JBL Reflect Flow is a high-value competitor in the booming wireless headphone market.
Reflect flows are really good, particularly if you want the gym to have a serious bass sound without having to use in-ear headphones. It gets 10 hours of battery life in the headphones and 20 more hours in the case, and JBL promises to deliver one hour of playback with a quick charge of 10 minutes.
They provide a comfortable match with the right combination of spatulas and fins, which holds them securely in place during all sporting activities, while that extra help from deep yet precise bass should see you over the line, on arrival.
The ambient mode is a notable feature: press the left button, and the volume decreases, allowing you to have a conversation without disabling the buttons. They’re worth comparing with the sporty Jaybird Five-Star Views (below), but we agree the JBL Reflect Flow has the benefit for the look and sound.
