Best true wireless earbuds 2020: AirPods, Samsung, Jabra, Bose, Beats and Anker compared and ranked

It wasn’t long ago that true wireless earbuds, those that don’t need any wires even between the earphones, weren’t very good. Solid connectivity was a challenge, dropouts were infuriatingly common and battery life was woeful.

But they all offered that taste of freedom from wires that is like a ratchet – once you’ve experienced tangle-free listening, you’ll never go back.

Now there are loads of truly wireless earbuds on the market offering all sorts of features, designs and sound. None of them are bargain basement, and it’s difficult to know which ones are worth buying. So here’s a guide to separate the wheat from the chaff.

This Guardian buyer’s guide to true wireless earbuds was last updated on 15 December, and represents the best available models at the time. As new models are released and tested, this guide will be updated to help you choose the right earbuds for you.

Best all-round: Samsung Galaxy Buds+

RRP:£159 / $149.99


Samsung’s fourth-generation true wireless earbuds may not look all that different from 2019’s Galaxy Buds, but the Buds+ have a few meaningful changes that keep them at the top of the pile for regular, everyday earbuds in 2020.

Physically nothing has changed, meaning they still small, light and super-comfortable. If you have issues with bits of other earbuds pressing uncomfortably on parts of your ears, try these. You have to like the feel of a traditional silicone earbud tip in your ear canal, but they have the added advantage of staying put and blocking out background noise.

They do not protrude far from your ear, fitting under hats just fine, and come with a series of soft stabilising wings if you need them.

A touchpad on the outside takes care of controls. Tap to pause or play, double and triple-tap to skip track. A touch and hold gesture can be switched between turning on or temporarily piping ambient sound into the earbuds, triggering your voice assistant or to change the volume (left to go down, right to turn it up). Take both earbuds out and the music automatically pauses. Hold both for three seconds to pair another device. It all works very well.

The Buds+ sound really good producing detailed, balanced audio with a good amount of low-end punch. They can be cranked up to be uncomfortably loud, and come with a basic preset equaliser. They sound far better than most rivals at this price, but can’t match the most expensive earbuds for pure sonic quality.

A solid connection is a minimum requirement these days. The Buds + support Bluetooth 5.0, have a rock solid connection with a large range of devices, can be used individually, and have improved support across Android and Apple products, thanks to the Buds+ app on both platforms. They work well with Windows and can be hotswapped between devices without having to manually disconnect each one. The standard SBC and AAC codecs are supported alongside Samsung’s proprietary scalable codec and a Samsung-only low-latency mode for gaming. Samsung devices also get instant pairing and pairing syncing between devices such as phone and tablet.

Call quality is improved over the original Buds, with better clarity and reduction of background noise for the recipient. Battery life too is much improved, lasting up to 11 hours between charges which is far longer than most. The compact flip-top case is one of the best, easily fitting in the money pocket of a pair of jeans and is capable of fully charging the earbuds once for a total of 22 hours’ playback. The case can be charged via USB-C or wireless charging.

The earbuds are even rated a seven out of 10 by repair-specialists iFixit for repairability, including the ability to replace the battery, which makes the Buds+ far less disposable than rivals.

Why should I buy them?

The Galaxy Buds+ sound great, are small and comfortable, have a great case, last a long time on a charge, are potentially repairable and work with everything, making them the best general-purpose earbuds available.

Buy if: you want a simple set of truly wireless earbuds that sound good and just work

Don’t buy if: you don’t like canal-buds

Best sounding: Sony WF-1000XM3

RRP:£220 / $230


Third time’s the charm for Sony. The WF-1000XM3 finally live up to the Sony heritage with not only effective noise cancelling but truly great sound too.

The M3 part of the name aligns them with Sony’s excellent WH-1000XM3 headphones from 2019, which have class-leading sound and noise cancelling. The true wireless earbud version inherits the same noise cancelling chip and are almost as effective, reducing or eliminating train, road and plane noise, leaving you free to listen to your music at lower, more comfortable volumes.

The sound sparkles with detail, energy and clarity, while punchy bass produces a lovely full sound, just edging out the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2.

Bluetooth 5 means connectivity is strong and lipsync issues have been eliminated. While the design is attractive, particularly in the black and copper colour, the earbuds are massive and took a bit of trial and error to get the fit right with the correct earbud tip (seven pairs are included). On-earbud controls are good including volume controls following a software update. Touch and hold one to activate ambient passthrough to listen out for announcements.

Battery life is solid too, lasting up to six hours with noise cancelling active or eight with it off, and up to 32 hours with trips in the case. Like the earbuds the case is also fairly large and difficult to pocket. They’re not cheap, but if you want genuinely great sound, the WF-1000XM3 are the ones to buy still a year on from release.

Why should you buy them?

Brilliant sound, excellent noise cancelling and solid connectivity, complemented by solid battery life and an attractive design, the WF-1000XM3 are still the best-sounding true wireless earbuds.

Buy if: you want the best sound and great noise cancelling

Don’t but if: you want something smaller and more pocket-friendly

Best noise cancelling: Jabra Elite 85t

RRP:£219.99 / $229.99


Jabra’s fourth-generation true wireless earbuds are the company’s best yet.

Building on the slimmed-down and more comfortable design of their predecessors, the Elite 85t now have a lighter, more balanced fit with redesigned oval-shaped ear tips that don’t enter your ear canal quite so deeply.

They stay put and are more comfortable for extended periods. They are also fairly compact for earbuds with active noise cancelling and don’t protrude as far as their Bose or Sony rivals.

A button on each earbud takes car of controls, including volume, with full customisation with the Sound+ app. Connectivity is rock solid, with Bluetooth 5.1, SBC and AAC support, plus the ability to connect to two devices at the same time, such as a phone and a tablet. Only the right earbud can be used on its own, but call quality is good.

They sound a lot better than previous efforts and just beat Apple’s AirPods Pro, producing rich and highly detailed but balanced audio with deep bass that doesn’t overly dominate. The noise cancelling is also very effective, blocking most unwanted tones. It can be turned up or down, should you want to let a little of the outside world in.

Battery life is good too, with up to five hours with noise cancelling active and an excellent, compact case that can recharge the earbuds 3.5 times for a total of 25 hours’ playback.

Why should you buy them?

They have the best combination of brilliant sound, excellent noise cancelling, long battery life, competition-beating connectivity, a comfortable fit and a compact case.

Buy if: you want comfortable and compact noise cancelling earbuds

Don’t buy if: you exclusively use Apple gear – the AirPods Pro may be better

Best non-isolating: Apple AirPods 2

RRP:£159 or £199 / $159 or $199


If you don’t like blocking out the world, or can’t get on with canal-bud style earphones that enter your ear, look no further than Apple’s AirPods, now in their second generation.

They gently rest in your ear with little white stalks sticking down, projecting the sound down your ear holes rather than sitting directly in them. As a consequence you can hear everything happening around you meaning you won’t be able to hear your music on something as loud as the tube in London, and if cranked up to maximum they bleed sound, although not as badly as Apple’s non-wireless EarPods. They sound pretty good considering the lack of isolation, with reasonable bass and clarity.

The AirPods work best with Apple gear, automatically syncing pairing across any Apple devices you might have, but can also be paired with Android or other devices. Connectivity is rock solid with an iPhone and recent Android devices and PCs.

Where they fall down is on-board controls - there’s basically just one, a double tap. When connected to a non-iPhone it pauses or plays music. Hooked up to an iOS device you have the option to trigger Siri, pause or skip track on each earbud, which means one can summon Siri while the other pauses. There’s no volume control. Take them out and it pauses the music.

With the second generation AirPods you can also just say “Hey Siri” at any time without having to tap anything to activate Apple’s voice assistant. After having to re-teach Siri to recognise my voice, it generally worked well, even with music blasting out. But Siri can be a little slow, particularly when you have poor connectivity on your smartphone. You also get odd looks doing so on public transport.

The AirPods’ other strengths are that you can use either of the earbuds in mono, call quality is pretty good, and the charging case is the best in the business. The AirPods last about five hours of music and can be fully charged around five times by the case, which itself is charged via a Lightning cable. They are also available with a new wireless charging case (£40/$40 extra) for powering up on Qi-compatible chargers.

Why should I buy them?

Seamless connectivity with Apple products is key, but they sound pretty good, have an excellent case and are a decent alternative to canal-buds, even for Android users.

Buy if: you use Apple products and don’t need sound isolation

Don’t buy if: you want to block out the sounds outside world

Best for sport: Beats PowerBeats Pro

RRP:£219.95 / $249.95


If you wish Apple’s AirPods had better isolation and gripped on to your ear like a vice, look no further than the Beats PowerBeats Pro.

Like the AirPods the PowerBeats Pro have great connectivity with an iPhone, which courtesy of the Beats app even extends to Android. Rock solid connectivity in all conditions is paired with excellent controls. Both earbuds have proper volume rocker controls, plus a multifunction button for controlling playback, skipping tracks or activating Siri or Google Assistant.

The flexible ear hook loops over the back of your ear and with a bit of adjustment holds them firmly in place on your head - no amount of jumping, giggling or pounding the tarmac is going to shake these free. They’re also sweat resistant so will be fine in the rain or hard workout; just don’t run them under a tap.

The silicone earbud tip offers some isolation from the world around you. The forward, energetic sound is ideal for powering through a run or gym session, while also doing a good job with most music genres, banishing the all-bass Beats sound profile to the history books.

Call quality is excellent too, while battery life is a class-leading eight hours with another 1.5 charges in the case.

The enormous case is the worst thing about them. It’s robust and works just fine, but you’re not going to be able to fit it in a pocket. They’re also pricy, so if you just want basic buds for the gym, these aren’t for you.

Why should you buy them?

You want the AirPod-like convenience of connectivity and features with an iPhone (or Android with app), with class-leading battery, good sound, excellent controls including a real volume rocker, plus an ear hook design that’s unshakeable.

Buy if: you want rock-solid all-rounders that won’t come off no matter what you do

Don’t but if: you want something smaller and cheaper

Best budget option: Anker Liberty Air 2

RRP:£55.99 / $89.99


Anker have several good value true wireless earbuds to pick from, but the Liberty Air 2 have the best combination of sound, call quality, sound and price, particularly when picked up on a deal.

They have an AirPods-like design with stalks but a well-fitting traditional silicone ear tip that provides solid noise isolation. They’re comfortable for hours, come with five different sizes of earbud tip and are IPX5 sweat-resistant, so fine for using on a run.

The earbuds have excellent Bluetooth 5 connectivity supporting SBC, AAC and aptX audio formats, which is rare at this price. Each earbud can be used independently and call quality is excellent on both sides of the call with very good background noise reduction.

The Air 2 also have on-earbud touch controls, including playback and volume, plus the music pauses when you remove one from your ear. The battery lasts for up to seven hours on a single charge. They slot into an good, small and pocketable flip-top case for charging up to three times for a total of 28 hours’ playback. The case charges via USB-C or wireless charging, which is also rare at this price.

Sound is good, with punchy bass, strong treble and bright highs, plus a fairly open tone that’s generally pleasant. They won’t trouble the best on the market, but they’re good for the money.

The Soundcore app for Android and iOS has an equaliser and HearID, which gives you a hearing test then customises the sound accordingly. The app also handles control settings and updates.

One of the few downsides is that they don’t support seamless switching, meaning you have to manually disconnect them from one device before connecting to another.

Why should you buy them?

Good connectivity, battery, fit, sound and design, plus solid controls including volume combine with a good pocketable case and excellent call quality to make fantastic value true wireless earbuds.

Buy if: you want great all-round truly wireless earbuds on a budget

Don’t buy if: you want better sound and seamless switching

Runners up

These truly wireless earbuds are still worth buying, if the top five don’t fit the bill.

Amazon Echo Buds

RRP:£119.99 / $129.99


Amazon’s first true wireless earbuds offer a lot for the money with noise reduction (not full cancellation), touch controls and good sound, plus full Alexa integration. A recent update also added fitness tracking options.

But their large size, average battery life, larger than the best case and sometimes unreliable touch panels hold them back from being truly great.

Apple AirPods Pro

RRP:£249 / $249


With good sound, great connectivity with Apple devices, solid noise cancelling, good call quality, a compact case and a set of squeezable playback controls on the stalks, the AirPods Pro are some of the best true wireless earbuds you can buy.

But they are just pipped to the top noise cancelling spot by the Jabra Elite 85t with better sound, longer battery life and cross-platform support. Still, the AirPods Pro are a great choice for anyone who exclusively uses Apple gear thanks to a range of smart features such as spatial audio, instant pairing and seamless switching – particularly when bought on a deal.

Bose QuietComfort Earbuds

RRP:£249.95 / $279.95


If you want the most effective noise cancelling in true wireless earbuds, the new Bose QuietComfort Earbuds are the new kings. Unlike rivals they don’t block up your ear canals with little earbuds – instead the soft silicone tips rest in your concha. holding themselves in place with a flexible fin.

They’re very comfortable, sound good, block out more noise than the competition and have up to six hours’ battery. But they’re also huge, expensive and have a large case that’s not as pocketable as the Jabra Elite 85t, holding them back from being the very best.

Cambridge Audio Melomania 1

RRP:£119.95 / $129.95


The Cambridge Audio Melomania 1 come very close to delivering on all counts. They have rock-solid Bluetooth 5 connectivity with AAC and aptX support, a long eight-hour battery, good controls including a way to adjust volume and they even sound good, with balanced, rounded audio.

The case is also one of the best available, adding up to 36 hours of playback to the earbuds while still being very pocketable, fitting into the money pocket of a pair of jeans long with only a handful of the best.

The problem is, they’re huge. They have a really large aperture, making getting the earbud tip to fit without blocking your ear canal a bit of a chore and they stick out a mile, looking like something Nichelle Nichols’s Uhura would use in classic Star Trek. The big trunk is uncomfortable in my ears, meaning any 30-minute-plus listening becomes painful. A real shame.

Creative Outlier Air

RRP:£74.99 / $79.99


The Creative Outlier Air are good budget value and have solid sound, connectivity, battery life and controls. Call quality is pretty good and they’re sweat resistant.

But they are a bit on the large side and the case is pretty big compared with the best in the business, meaning they have been replaced by the Anker Liberty Air 2 as the top budget option.

Google Pixel Buds

RRP:£179 / $179


Google’s Pixel Buds are essentially the firm’s AirPods rival with a set of features reserved for Android devices. Used with an Android device with access to the Google Play Store – and the Pixel Buds app – they have instant pairing, seamless device switching and Google Assistant integration that includes real-time language translation.

The touch controls are excellent, they are low profile but have a unique fit with both a traditional earbud and a small silicone wing that may prove uncomfortable for some. The small case is great and battery life is solid. The sound is good, but they don’t isolate very well – the vents prevent a “plugged-in” feeling but let background noise in too.

Huawei Freebuds Pro

RRP: £139.99


Huawei’s latest Bluetooth earbuds have a very familiar design and noise cancelling, but fall slightly short of the AirPods Pro. They have a traditional silicone earbud tip with a light and comfortable fit, rectangular stalks with both squeeze for playback and swipe controls for volume, plus auto-pause on remove.

Noise cancelling is solid, switching between modes depending on background sounds. Audio quality is good, but is affected by turning on the noise cancelling, which reduces bass and range. Call quality is good, while battery life is just over four hours and a total of 20 with the case, which is a little chunkier than the best but recharges via USB-C or wireless charging.

They have Bluetooth 5.2 with AAC, but their ace in the hole is the ability to connect to two devices at once. The Huawei Ai Life app is needed for updates and settings, but isn’t available on iOS. They can also be fiddly to get out of the case.

Jabra Elite 75t

RRP:£149.99 / $169.99

The 7 Best Wireless Earbuds For Android - Fall 2021 Reviews

The Samsung Galaxy Buds+ are the best earbuds for Android with a wireless design that we've tested. These sleek in-ears have a very neutral sound profile out-of-the-box that makes them suitable for listening to lots of different types of audio content. They're well-built, and their comfortable, stable fit makes them a solid choice for listening to music during your workouts.

Thanks to their over 13-hour continuous battery life, these headphones can last through long days on the go. If you need to recharge them, their portable charging case offers around one extra charge, which is handy. They also don't leak a lot of audio, so you can crank up the volume on your favorite tunes without really bothering those around you.

Unfortunately, these headphones don't have an ANC feature, and they struggle to block out bass-heavy background noises like bus and plane engines. Also, while their companion app comes with some EQ presets, they lack more premium sound enhancement features like a full graphic EQ. That said, they still offer pretty versatile performance for Android users, and they're among the best wireless earbuds for Samsung too.

Ratings and Reviews

Nice one Samsung

So I have all my music on my iPod touch right and I try to use the app and it keeps on insisting that it is not compatible with the iPod touch. To their credit it is a 6th gen iPod with some bad specs which doesn’t make any sense to why it wouldn’t be compatible but alright. So I try it out on my iPad where I get most of my work done and nothing. Still not compatible. There is absolutely no excuse for this it is running the latest version of iPad OS and has great specs. I think Samsung believes that everyone has their music on an iPhone, which is true for most people but some people just like to have a device for only music listening like the iPod, or the people trying to work during a pandemic like this one with an iPad. There is no excuse for this non compatibility and if there is a technical issue as to why this is the case please tell me Samsung. Thank you.

I am using a iPad Air 2 which according to Samsung’s reply to this review is not supported. I am using the Buds+. They still work with the device but not having the app is an inconvenience. I am still confused as to why the compatibility is only for these devices, my idea is that Samsung develops for each individual device which I have never seen before. I have to give them some props to trying to make this in the first place instead of only having Bluetooth or worse yet having it locked to one device. I am still curious if this is a technical issue or a software issue with the compatibility.

Hello again! Thanks for clarifying your iPad model and we are really sorry for the inconvenience. The minimum requirement for a Galaxy Buds App to work in iOS is satisfied by iPad Air 3rd Generation or later models with iOS 10 and later versions. The Galaxy Buds App is not compatible with older models. We would love to support all our users but this is unfortunately a hardware compatibility limitation which cannot be addressed by a software update.

Connectivity issue

I’ll start out by saying I honestly really enjoy the buds+. They sound awesome, plus the ambient mic mode and numerous other features are really nice. The issue I have is if I pair the buds+ through the app, my buds+ have no sound coming through them. My phone just sends the audio through the phone speakers like nothing is connected. If I just pair the buds+ through the Bluetooth connection menu in my settings for my IPhone X, they will function normally. If I pair them through my Bluetooth menu though I cannot pair them through the app, which prevents me from being able to use all the cool features. My phone and buds+ are both on the latest updates. I have also deleted the app and reinstalled it, just to make sure there wasn’t just some bad file I downloaded. Or possibly just a glitch in my download. I have had zero issues with other headphone companies and their software for their headphones. This is a sad deal for me, because I really want to be able to use these headphones to their fullest
exten. These are by far the most comfortable and best sounding truly wireless headphones I have had.

NO Sense

How do you make an app that is not compatible to its original product version!! When will this app be compatible or when will there be an app that is compatible? I was sooo excited when I purchased the original galaxy buds from Samsung since I had done all my research and compared them to a few others including Apple AirPods, and Samsung ultimately won for its look and comfort for me and also it stated on the website that they were compatible to iOS came to find out they are not!!! I called Samsung to complain but of course nothing could be done I accepted the fact that I can only use my buds as Bluetooth with my iPhone 11 max pro but was told to periodically check for an app in the App Store since it might become available soon. Today I was told by a colleague that a new version of the galaxy buds was available with the app for iPhones I was excited when I heard the news that I quickly downloaded the app thinking that of course it’s compatible to the original buds how could they not right.... Not reading the fine print “not compatible with SM-R170” VERY DISAPPOINTED! NOT HAPPY AT ALL!! Not sure if I will be buying Samsung products anymore since it’s very hard to have them pair or be compatible with other devices. Please make it compatible. It’s ridiculous it’s not!

Dear user, we apologize for any confusion; this application has been developed for Galaxy Buds+. Your Galaxy Buds from last year will not be supported due to compatibility limitations. Let us explain:
Buds+ has been built with a new chip which enhances connectivity and provides better memory. Due to the implementation of the new chip, Galaxy Buds+ are compatible with iOS devices.
Sadly, this compatibility limitation cannot be addressed with a software update. We're really sorry for the inconvenience it may cause and we really appreciate your understanding.

Galaxy Buds Plus[edit]

The Galaxy Buds Plus were announced on February 11, 2020 at the spring Galaxy Unpacked event.[3] The Buds Plus were released on February 14, priced at $149.99, a $20 price increase from the original Buds.[4] The Buds Plus maintained the same design as the original Buds, but reviewers praised the improved sound and microphone quality and significantly increased battery life.[5]

Galaxy Buds Live[edit]

Main article: Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

The Galaxy Buds Live were announced on August 5, 2020 during a virtual Galaxy Unpacked event.[6] The Buds Live were notable for their "bean" like on-ear design, a departure from the previous in ear design used in the buds lineup. The Buds Live were the first Galaxy Buds device to launch with active noise cancellation. The Buds Live were praised for their design, but criticised for the ineffective active noise cancellation.[7][8]

Galaxy Buds Pro[edit]

The Galaxy Buds Pro were announced on January 14, 2021 and launched the following day on January 15th. The Buds Pro improved upon the design of the Galaxy Buds Plus and included improved audio, head tracking technology, and active noise cancellation.[9] They were praised for their improved design and sound quality, but criticized for their 5-hour battery life when active noise cancellation is on.[10]

Galaxy Buds 2[edit]

The Galaxy Buds 2 were announced on August 11, 2021 at Galaxy Unpacked alongside the Galaxy Watch 4.[11] The Buds 2 were seen as the successor to the Buds Plus, which were discontinued following the announcement.[12] The Buds 2 include active noise cancellation, and cost less than the Buds Pro, and were praised for their all around performance for the price.[13]
