The Best In-Ear Wireless Earbuds & Airpod Pro Competitors, Samsung, JBL, Jaybird, Sony, EarFun

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.

Sony – 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.
