The Best Truly Wireless Earbuds of 2019 – What’s going on guys, Jose P. Berg here. And in a few weeks, 2019 is over, like where did this year go. We’re gonna go to 2020 to have brand new products, brand new designs, brand new feature sets, but before that happens, I’ve got to talk about the best truly wireless earbuds of 2019. Because I think this year has been the best year for refinement.
Sony WF-1000 XM3
Today the best-sounding truly wireless earbuds go to the Sony WF-1000 XM3. Terrible name, no one should name their product like that. But don’t let the poor product naming fool you because the sound spectrum on this is really nice. It doesn’t overemphasize the bass and doesn’t overemphasize the highs or mids. But it just does an excellent job of balancing them out. It doesn’t matter the type of track you’re playing; it adapts to make the sound quality go with it.
Now the thing I like about Sony’s is the fact that you get a full-featured companion app. something that all these other truly wireless earbuds are missing. This app allows you to customize everything from the equalization, from turning off certain sound experiences to even doing little things like changing the way the ambient sound works in your ear. Active noise cancellation is hands-down the best. Like I’ve used the AirPods Pro, they’re good, but these ones are slightly better. The only thing I don’t like about this product is the bulk. It has a bulky case, so it’s going to take up more space in your pocket compared to the competition.
And also, the earbuds themselves are quite significant. They fit in perfectly. They don’t feel like they’re gonna fall out. But because the sides of it so side heavy. If you start to run or do anything intensive, these will fall out of your ear. Now, if you’re not buying this for the gym, then they’re perfect. Like you’ll love the way they feel, you’ll love the way they sound, and you’ll love the features about them. They also have really great battery life. Six hours of use before needed to charge eighteen hours more if you include the case.
My next pick is for Apple users, hands down you’re gonna want to buy the AirPods Pro. not only are they super convenience, but they’re also small, they fit in your pocket nicely. They connect to your Apple devices so easily because of the chip inside of it. And they even sound better than last year. I think a lot of it is to do with the fact that it has passive noise cancellation now. So when it’s in your ear, you can hear the sound better. But when you activate active noise cancellation, you get the full experience.
Now it’s still more of a flat sound. Like you’re not going to get the vibrancy of the Sony’s or any of the other ones that I talked about in this article. But they do such a really good job with vocals. I truly believe Apple emphasizes vocals. This gives it an excellent option for people who listen to a lot of podcasts or spend a lot of time talking on the phone.
Now, battery life is not as good as the Sony’s like you’re only gonna get four hours with ANC on, five with it off. But I do like the transparency mode, similar to the ambient mode. It allows you to hear the environment, and the Airpods Pro do it the best. The only thing I don’t like about this product is the fact that you can’t change the volume using the AirPods. You have actually to do it through your phone or use Siri integration.
Now, if you’re super into Fitness, hands down the Powerbeats Pro. It doesn’t matter for using Android or iOS it’s gonna sound good on both platforms. Slightly better on the iPhone just because it uses AAC, but it still sounds really good with Android. I love these guys because they’re emphasizing the bass a little bit, but they’re also pushing up the treble and the mid to compensate. Which gives you a sweet, punchy, vibrant sound. It’s not as weak as it used to be back in the day when Beats had a terrible reputation. They’ve completely changed their sound spectrum for the better.
Now for gym-goers, you’re gonna appreciate these. Because they have the ear hook, they wrap around your ear. Naturally, they stay fit the passive noise integration you get with the earbud going inside. And the fact that you can actually change the volume with physical buttons on both earbuds is fantastic. You pair that with a little bit of sweat resistance. And 10 hours of use before needing to charge. You get hands-down the best fitness experience for truly wireless earbuds.
Jabra Elite 75T
So my next pick is going to the Jabra Elite 75T. I love these guys because they have a great balance of everything. They don’t do one specific thing exceptionally well, they just do everything pretty good. In the previous generation 65T, I used to recommend to everyone. Because at the moment, while they first came out, they were ahead of the competition. But time has changed new products at the market, and the 75 T is the upgrade.
Instead of a micro USB port on the bottom, you’re now getting USB Type-C. They Shrunk the package. They actually shrunk the size of the earbuds. They’re smaller now, and they fit more snugly in your ear. The reason why I love these guys is they’re great for everything like if you’re going to work. If you’re traveling, they have good passive noise integration. So like even if you’re in a plane, they do a pretty good job of blocking out the noise.
And you can also take these to the gym because they fit in your ear perfectly. I don’t find these will fall out whatsoever. The only thing to note is because they’re so tight in your ear. You’re gonna start hearing yourself breathe or your heartbeat if you don’t have any music playing. Battery life 7 hours per charge, which is really good. Not Powerbeats Pro good but better than all the other ones I’ve suggested so far.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air II
And the last one is a budget pick. And I’ll be honest with you I haven’t reviewed any budget truly wireless earbuds this year. But I’ve talked to other tech writers, I’ve done some research, and the one that keeps popping up is the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air II. these are supposed to be really good truly wireless earbuds for under $100.
So before wrapping this up, I just want to summarize everything for you. The Jabra Elites offer you the best balance between all the categories. If you’re looking for something good for the gym, good for work, has a good sound, has a good battery life, it hits all the areas perfectly. If you’re want to find the best sound period. And you want a good experience on both Android and iOS, get the Sony’s. You just have to put up with bulky earbuds and a big charging case. If you’re looking for the most comfortable experience, with a lot of great features AirPods Pro for iPhone users, you can’t go wrong. And finally, for the gym, you’re not going to find anything better than the Powerbeats Pro. Amazing in battery life, a great fit, and actual physical volume controls. Anyways that wraps this up.
