Wireless Earbuds Deals
The Galaxy Buds2 (9/10 WIRED Recommends) are the latest addition to Samsung’s lineup of wireless buds, and in our roundup of Best Wireless Earbuds, WIRED associate reviews editor Parker Hall also says these are his favorite headphones for Android—it’s important to know that iPhone users won’t have access to the Buds2 companion app. They’re lightweight, boast an IPX2 water-resistance rating, and pack active noise cancellation (ANC) with up to 5 hours of battery life with the feature turned on. They even come with a wireless charging case.
These hold the title of Best Overall in our roundup of Best Earbuds for Working Out. In addition to a durable build and long battery life, the the Vista 2 buds offer a more comfortable fit than the first-generation model (8/10 WIRED Recommends), along with the ability to find your lost earbuds or switch from noise-canceling mode to ambient mode via the companion app.
Not only are Bang & Olufsen’s earbuds stunning to look at and water-resistant, but the size is also ideal for those with small ears. Their excellent sound quality is super customizable, too, with the option to adjust audio transparency and choose from different listening profiles. As for battery life, you’ll get up to seven hours as standalone buds, and 30 hours including the case.
