The Ambient Aware can be used to control how much surrounding noise penetrates the earbuds. The Quick Ambient will allow you to quickly let outside noises become audible. 

CONS

The double/triple tap takes some practice. 

OUR VERDICT

Samsung Galaxy Buds are the best true wireless buds below 100 bucks. These things feel good and sound good too. Plus, the music automatically stops when you remove the buds and resumes with a slight tap when you put them back in your ears.

Incorporating Pioneering Audio technology, the model's graphene drivers inject sound with remarkable clarity and treble.

The bud's in-ear fit creates that sound-tight seal that allows for deeper bass and improved noise isolation.

CONS

The earphones might not prove loud enough for some people.

OUR VERDICT

Soundcore Liberty A3912 are equal-part comfortable and reliable in the long run (both literal and proverbial). The audio quality here is superb as far as mid-range earbuds are concerned. The charging case is compact enough to fit just about any pocket.

Samsung SM-R170NZKAXAR

Feel (and Sound) Good Inc.

Samsung Galaxy Buds are not cheap but these things' overall performance and comfort justify the price.

The adaptive dual microphone is probably the product's biggest strength. Mixing audio from inner and outer microphones, the earbuds are able to produce the clearest voice calls.

The Ambient Aware and Quick Ambient modes are fantastic too. Using the former, you'll be able to control how much surrounding noise penetrates the earbuds. The latter will allow you to quickly let outside noises become audible, making sure you're able to hear nearby friends/coworkers, catch flight announcements, traffic noises, etc.

Of course, earbuds are all about sound quality first and foremost. Incorporating AKG drivers, the model delivers rich, natural sound with excellent dynamic range and substantial bass.

On one hand, the controls are great. You can easily switch tracks, take calls, and/or turn up the volume with but one touch. On the other hand, the double/trip taps required for different tasks might take some time to get used to.

Bottom line, Samsung Galaxy Buds are the best-sounding true wireless buds below 100 bucks. These stylish things feel good and look good too. Plus, the music automatically stops when you remove the buds and resumes with a slight tap when you put them back in your ears.

Soundcore A3912

Superb Treble and Deeper Bass

Soundcore Liberty A3912 does not mess around. These earbuds make sure you're able to experience your favorite music the way it is supposed to be experienced.

Incorporating Pioneering Audio technology, the model's graphene drivers practically fuel sound with remarkable clarity and treble. Oscillating with exceptional precision, these drivers bring you the most accurate and realistic sound. At the same time, the 'bud's in-ear fit creates that sound-tight seal that allows for deeper bass and improved noise isolation.

The excellent noise-isolation tech here is especially important because the product's biggest flaw is that the earbuds just aren't all that loud.

On the bright side, the grip-fit tech makes sure the ergonomically designed earbuds sit equally securely and comfortably in your ears. Slide these things in and twist them to lock. After that, you can run, push your limits at the gym, do whatever you want, the earbuds will remain secure and comfortable.

Other than that, the industry-standard Bluetooth 5.0 lets you enjoy the most stable, skip-free connection for uninterrupted streaming.

In short, Soundcore Liberty A3912 are equal-part comfortable and reliable in the long run (both literal and proverbial). The audio quality here is superb as far as mid-range earbuds are concerned. The charging case is compact enough to fit just about any pocket.

Conico F9

10 Hours of Non-Stop Music

Considering the sound quality and overall tech that these earbuds offer, Conico F9 is ridiculously affordable.

The relatively huge dynamic driver offers deep bass and penetrating, crystal-clear treble. At the same time, the Bluetooth 5.0 tech makes sure there's barely any latency.

On the other side, the usual CVC noise-cancelling module lets these wireless earbuds block out almost all surrounding noise. Plus, the module works wonders blocking the wind noise created during jogging, biking, driving, etc.

Generally speaking, these earbuds are pretty comfortable. We wouldn't call them ergonomic though. There's more than a good chance your ears will start to feel uncomfortable after 3-5 hours.

That being said, we can forgive the somewhat unergonomic form factor considering the model's ridiculous battery life. These things are able to deliver 10 hours of playtime, which is insane for wireless earbuds in general and true wireless earbuds in particular.

Last but not least, the fully wireless 'buds are IPX7 waterproof. The model's nano-coating does a bang-up job preventing water and sweat from penetrating and damaging the earbuds' sensitive components.

In other words, Conico F9 true wireless earbuds are better at just about everything than any other cordless model within this price range. The battery life is ridiculous. The on-ear controls will let receive/reject calls, adjust the volume, change tracks, and more.

OFUSHO take it. take fun

Hear the Difference

OFUSHO Bluetooth Earbuds are as good as entry-level/mid-range wireless earbuds come. At this price range, earbuds seldom deliver half-decent sound quality. That's not the case here though.

Incorporating Qualcomm QCC3020 aptX audio tech, these 'buds let you enjoy actual high-quality 3D stereo sound. The earbuds will bring you that lossless, authentic, deep bass audio that will be able to go toe-to-toe with its much more expensive competition.

Apart from that, it is the usual deal that we've all seen before. Certificated with the IPX7 waterproof level, these earbuds have no issues completely repelling sweat and rain.

The CVC 8.0 noise-cancelling technology will make sure you're able to hear the music in the noisiest environments.

The touch controls are intuitive and practical enough. The volume control isn't though. It is extremely fast and will likely take some time to get used to.

On the battery life front, the model does not disappoint. It can play music for 8 hours straight, which is pretty impressive. What's even more impressive is that the charging case gives these earbuds over 150 hours.

To sum it all up, OFUSHO Bluetooth Earbuds will make you hear the difference between these earbuds and regular wireless 'buds. These things automatically connect to the music source, no downloads, no manual step, no waiting. They're equally suitable for running, sports, and work.

Ceppekyy S2

Quality Sound on a Budget

Ceppekyy S2 Bluetooth Earbuds are as affordable as true wireless earbuds come. As far as we can tell, the model doesn't trail behind its more expensive competition though.

The battery life isn't great, that's probably the only major issue we have with the product. It is able to deliver 6 hours of playtime, which isn't bad but not necessarily great either. The charging case is pretty bad tough. It is unable to give the battery more than 36 hours, so you'll probably have to recharge the case every week or so.

On the bright side, the earbuds sound amazing compared to every other model within the same price range. The drivers deliver deep bass and solid treble. The noise-cancelling tech here works wonders reducing ambient noise and echo, enabling clear sound and making sure you can focus on the music.

The on-ear touch controls are nothing to complain about too. Using one button, you're able to achieve multiple functions like answering/rejecting calls, skipping/playing/pausing songs, increasing/reducing volume, and more.

Long story short, Ceppekyy S2 Bluetooth Earbuds are solid budget earbuds. They're better in the sound quality department than any other model within the earbuds' price range. Plus, the 'buds are IPX7 waterproof, so you won't have to worry about sweat and rain damaging the circuits.

What Are True Wireless Earbuds?

Now, you probably know wireless headphones and earbuds to be something that connects to your player or smartphone via Bluetooth and therefore has no wires to hang from your ears to your pocketed device. The earbuds still had a cord that connected the buds, though. That’s the extent of wireless we’ve known for some years already.

True wireless earbuds are basically just two separate earbuds, there is no cord connecting them to each other. You just push them up your ear canals like your usual buds and go. Nothing slaps you on the back of your neck, nothing tangles in your hair. It’s utterly convenient.

At the same time, besides enhanced convenience—no tangling wires, nothing getting in your way and hindering your movements—these more up-to-date earbuds offer better sound quality, and that’s something that was often a major issue with any wireless audio devices. It is yet to reach the level of a good CD player, of course, but it is already better than what everybody has gotten used to. Basically, true wireless earbuds are a new step in portable audio technology where the pros overpower any cons for most users. Try them for yourself!
