With phones shunning the 3.5mm headphone jack, truly wireless headphones and earphones are the new flavor of the season. Of course, this new rapidly-expanding breed is here to stay. These earbuds may not replicate the quality of wired headphones but carry several advantages. For starters, you do not have to worry about dangling wires.
And yeah, you can leave aside the worries of entangling them. All you have to make sure that these earbuds stay charged and you are good to go. Pretty cool, right? So, if you are in the market looking for wireless audio accessories, here are some of the best earbuds that are available in India.
1. JABRA ELITE 65T
When it comes to sound quality, the Elite 65t delivers deep and punchy bass. One of its nifty features is its sound transparency feature, which lets you adjust the degree of ambient noise. Other than that, the companion app lets you p[lay around with the built-in EQ settings and Soundscapes. The feature I liked the most was auto-pause, which (you guessed it right) pauses the music when you take off one of the earbuds.
2. BOSE SOUNDSPORT FREE
When it comes to the audio quality, these deliver a clean sound experience, coupled with a pronounced bass. As per the folks in Tom’s Guide, these don’t come with the overblown bass that is common with other headphones.
Apart from that, the SoundSport Free comes with physical buttons. Right from controlling volumes to skipping skip tracks, you can do them all. The only catch is that the buttons are small and feel a little stiff.
When it comes to battery life, these last around 5.5 to 6 hours. Just 15 minutes of charging can buy you an hour of playback time.
Moving on, the SoundSport has the advantage of NFC. For easy pairing, tap the NFC-enabled phone to the earpiece to connect.
3. ONEPLUS BULLETS WIRELESS 2
A snug fit ensures great noise isolation, meaning you can work without distractions. Connectivity-wise, I’ve found no issues with these. When in pairing mode, they connect instantly, and I have had no connection drops till now.
And the list of features does not end there. It features Bluetooth 5.0 and includes support for OnePlus’ Warp Charge fast-charging standard, which tops up the earphones in around 20 minutes.
4. SAMSUNG GALAXY BUDS
Though the touch-sensitive buttons on the Galaxy Buds are really cool, it takes a bit of time to get used to them. If you’re not habituated with the touch controls, fidgeting with the buds may either cause the song to skip or the volume to go down.
Apart from that, you can customize the tap and long-press action of the button via the Samsung Wearable app. The sound quality is great, with a tad low level of bass. If you are a bass head, you might want to skip this pair. Again, the Buds support the SBC and AAC Bluetooth codec, but there’s no support for aptX.
5. LENOVO HT10 TRUE WIRELESS EARBUDS
Apart from that, the sound quality is quite decent for the price. You’ll find bass, though you won’t find the deep rumble you’d usually find in premium earbuds. However, for the price, the quality is decent. However, the noise cancellation is not up to the standards. And in my time with it, I found myself to be talking a bit louder during calls.

6. CROSSBEATS RAGA WIRELESS BLUETOOTH EARPHONES
These come with Bluetooth 4.1 support. Most of the reviews suggest that there haven’t been any issues with the connection. It’s one of the features that has been praised by many users on Amazon.
Apart from that, the Raga lasts around 8 hours on a full charge, and topping it up takes about 2 hours. Do note that the battery life of wireless audio equipment depends a lot on your volume levels.
7. REALME BUDS WIRELESS
Though you won’t find active noise-canceling here, the right fit of ear tips does their job in sealing the ambient noise. However, you may find noise filtering when you’re talking on the phone during your commute.
Sound-wise, I found them to be a bit loud. Other than that, it’s clear with the right amount of bass. Though they have the support for AAC codec, surprisingly, there’s no support for aptX.
So, which of these wireless Bluetooth earbuds will you choose? I like the look and the comfort of the OnePlus Bullets Wireless 2. They sound better, and the neckband design is the cherry on top.
