The headphone market – valued at $8.7 billion in 2015, is no joke. Innovation and new trends are big moneymakers. So when Apple said it was losing the headphone jack from its phones, many tech people and analysts were excited, but consumers were left wondering if they should invest in a new set of headphones. With Samsung’s S8 still promising a headphone jack, you might not think that it is the right, but the quality of the units recently tested convinced people to say bye the wired variety forever. Here are my top wireless headphones you will never regret spending your money on. While you are here and if you love headphones, shop them from hotozcoupons using the promo code from hotozcoupons.
Lightest: Apple AirPods
At four grams each, Apple’s AirPods are the lightest of the units. Important, but not the only thing. Well finished and designed, when you begin using them you can’t immediately get the feeling the AirPods will fall out, but this does decrease over time. The charging unit is very smooth and smart. The location and pairing functions are equally slick. Five hours of listening time on one charge aren’t that bad either.
Best Design: Amps Air
You will be sure that these would pop out of your ears but these will stay firmest out of all of the units. Sweat and rain-resistant, perfect for the gym, and regular listening and available in multiple colors.
Best For Everyday Use: Absolut BeatsX
A second for the design award, Absolut BeatsX boast the most user-friendly set-up and quickest…quick charge of all the units I tested. Five minutes charge for 30 minutes playtime is a nice feature, and the weight distribution of the technology involved made wearing the group feel more secure than simple earbuds when in the gym but comfortable enough for more prolonged use too.
Best Sound: Jabra Move Wireless
If you can’t do away with cans, try Jabra’s Move. High quality, lighter than they look and well designed, these headphones boast up to 8 hours of music time and up to12-hours of standby juice. The on-can controls are well placed, unlike other over-ear units. You can also use a 3.5mm cable if you’re out of battery.
Best Noise-cancelling: Sony MDR-1000x
Functionality and looks merge with Sony’s wireless over-ear, noise-canceling beasts. The “Sense Engine” helps you filter out the noise you don’t want and allow ambient sounds like train announcements and the one-tap “Quick Attention” function quickly lowers the volume when ordering coffee or paying a bill. Sony’s MDR-1000x are some cans that have had some thought poured into them. Using the headphones is genuinely a joy, although the on-can function gestures were a little challenging to master at first.
