Best Bluetooth Earphones Reviews

Last updated:

Bluetooth earphones are probably one of the most commonly bought consumer tech products. There’s absolutely loads out there and we’ve had our fair share also. Lots of different features, all varying in design like neck band earphones, ear-hooked earphones and true wireless.. The list goes on but its usually a similar pattern of obvious first glance differences. If you want headphones instead, check out our best Bluetooth headphones reviews. Otherwise, continue surfing through all the Bluetooth earphones we have waiting for you!

  • True wireless – A tempting idea especially with the charging case, this means without wires at all and separate earpieces. Using Bluetooth 4.2 and above since 2 earpieces need to pair for stereo sound.
  • Neckband Earphones – They have a joining cable or neckband which keeps in sync the stereo. It stops you from losing the earpieces, gives a better control scheme while connecting to devices via Bluetooth.
  • Wired earphones have a mini jack and do not have Bluetooth functionality.

Compatibility and Phone Calls

Some good knowledge to have is that with the Bluetooth 5.0 release, it allowed multiple devices to connect to each other. This is partly how True Wireless came to be, because you can sync each earphone together for Stereo.

Be aware that older phones may not be able to pair if the device Bluetooth is too far outdated from the choice of earphones. All things considered, you may want to make phone calls with the earphones, skip tracks etc with the earphone buttons. As long as your phone or Digital Audio Player has Bluetooth 4.2 and above, the earphone control scheme should work to answer calls. Best check online first though before buying, only to avoid disappointment if there’s button or pairing issues!

Some people don’t like Bluetooth for lots of different reasons, fortunately we have a whole host of wired earphones reviews. Actually the prices now for wired are much better but as the demand rises and the availability falls, that will soon change.
