Big, over-ear headphones that plug into your phone aren’t for everyone. If you’re into exercising and want something lightweight - or if you’re just fed up of those trailing cables – wireless earbuds are the way to go. They use Bluetooth technology, and give you loads of lovely freedom to listen when you’re on the move.

So, if you’re considering cutting the cord, we’ve rounded up our pick of the bunch…

 

Beats Powerbeats Pro - for sporty types

If you’re into doing lots of exercise, these earbuds are what you need. They’ve actually been designed for elite athletes, with secure earhooks that are completely adjustable - so you can easily find your perfect fit. As soon as you’ve got them on, you can start pushing yourself. They’re sweat and water-resistant and incredibly sturdy, so they’ll withstand a proper workout.

And not only do they look tough, they sound also packs quite a punch. It’s powerful and perfectly balanced, and Premium Bluetooth technology gives you fewer dropouts and a better range.

You’ll get up to 9 hours of playback, plus an extra 24+hours of power from the wireless charging case. And if you’re really in a hurry to get out on your run, a quick 5-minute charge gives you 1.5 hours of juice. More than enough for a few kilometres, surely.

Need some info? Simply say “Hey Siri” to request a playlist, get a weather report, or ask for directions. It couldn’t be easier.

Sony WF-1000XM3 - best for losing yourself in music

Noisy trains, roaring traffic, background chatter – you can shut the lot out with these amazing little earbuds. You'll be able to appreciate every note of your favourite music, or just enjoy the peace and quiet. And this isn't just any old noise-cancelling – you can actually control which sounds you want to block out.

The earbuds also adapt to your behaviour and environment. No matter where you are – in a quiet library or noisy train – you’ll always get the best sound. Clever stuff.

You’ll get up to 6 hours playback, and if you need a boost when you’re out and about simply pop them back in the charging case for 3 extra charges.

JBuds Air Executive -best for business and work calls

These earbuds are just made for making work calls, or listening to music on your commute or longer business trips.

They’re perfect for taking important business calls on the go. With touch controls on the earbuds themselves, you don’t even have to reach for your phone. High quality dual mics cancel out background noise and pick up your voice for clear conversations, so your colleagues won’t miss a word you say.

The Be Aware Audio feature gives you the option of staying aware of your surroundings, or completely losing yourself in music. Turn it on when you want to let ambient noise in and hear what’s going on around you, switch it off and immerse yourself in your favourite tunes with no distractions.

You’ll get up to 6 hours playback from a single charge, with 24 hours of extra power ready and waiting in the charging case.

Airpods Pro - best for iPhone owners

If you’ve got an iPhone, Apple Airpods are the perfect accessory, as well as being a pretty cool fashion statement. These earbuds have been designed to keep up with you, no matter what you’re doing. They're sweat and water resistant, have a mic for clear calls, and you can easily top them up on the go using the wireless charging case.

To give you the best possible sound experience, Adaptive EQ automatically fine-tunes the audio - for your ears only. Then with Active Noise Cancellation, you can block out all those distracting background sounds and lose yourself in music. And for those moments when you need to be aware, transparency mode lets in ambient noise with a tap of the earbuds.

Oh, and as you’d expect, Siri is on board. A simple “Hey Siri” lets you control your music, calls, volume, and more – all without lifting a finger.
