Whether you’re joining a Zoom meeting or hopping on a plane for that much anticipated vacation, these are the best all-around wireless headphones.
The Best Wireless Headphones for 2021
For anyone who can’t decide between under-ear or over-ear, the JayBird X4 wireless headphones may be the answer to your prayers. You can adjust the device to whatever fits your comfort. Plus, with protection from sweat and rain, and 8-hours of usage on one charge, they're great for gamers and runners alike. Available in two colors.
The Mpow Flame Bluetooth Headphones are just over $20, and give you about eight hours of use on a full charge. The water-resistant coating allows for sweating (again, great for long runs), and they come with a travel case. Available in eight colors.
For something absolutely wire-free, try these True Wireless Earbuds from Jabra. These buds can run up to five hours on a full charge and are voice compatible with Siri, Alexa, or Google Assistant. Available in three colors.
Another truly wireless pair for the budget-minded folks out there, and currently available for only $29.99. Battery life is a tad limited so you may have to charge them more than other wireless headphones, but the quality for value is hard to beat.
Some people hate earbuds. If that’s you, then go for these headphones from Bose. With noise-canceling technology, Quiet and Aware modes, and up to 25 hours of playtime, these are perfect for long Zoom meetings. Available in triple black or white smoke.
Earbud haters looking for a low-cost option should consider these noise-canceling headphones, available for just $39.99. With active noise-canceling technology, a built-in microphone, and over 30 hours of playtime, these are equally suited for the work-from-home and on-the-go life. Available in six colors.
Another full-coverage headphone, the Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2 comes with a travel sleeve, and the earcups swivel flat for easier storage. These headphones allow for up to 24-hours of playtime and feature active noise canceling technology. We love the smart sensor that automatically pauses your music when you take them off, and restarts when you put them back on.
