Last year Apple introduced the second edition of their widely adopted Airpods, while they might be the most popular on the market they also come with a hefty price range. The Airpods also don’t come with an appeal to everyone for a few reasons, especially given a lot of us use non-apple devices.
Sony, Jaybird, JBL, Samsung and EarFun offer up some competitive options which are well worth your consideration when it comes to making a choice. Below we give you an in-depth review of these leading options which we think are worthy picks.
2Sony – WF-1000XM3
Sony is arguably an industry leader when it comes to headphones, everything but their naming scheme is quality. The WF-1000XM3 are no different and are praised by many.
Like their big brother the WH-1000XM3, they are built well and feature the same sleek colour profiles.
Unfortunately, if your main use is exercising it is worth noting, these are neither sweat or water-resistant. With many of the competition having these important features, the price tag does seem a bit more exuberant.
|The headphones case does not have wireless charging but you do get to charge over USB-C with the possibility of 90minutes of listening time with 10 minutes of charge. Overall however, these are very solid headphones and you will be happy with your purchase – if things such as the price and water resistance is important, many take a look at other options.|
