If you’ve been thinking about getting some wireless earbuds (and preferably buds you can afford) then you might be wondering where to start.
With the sheer number of earbuds to choose from you’d be forgiven for feeling confused, intimidated or both. And if you’re looking for more affordable earbuds than Apple AirPods then it can be difficult working out which buds are best for you.
With their compact charge cases, it’s so easy to toss wireless earbuds into a small bag or pocket, making them a perfect accessory for a workout, neighborhood walk or on-the-go work calls.
There’s no doubt Apple Airpods and Apple Airpod Pros (which cost up to £200) are popular options for wireless listening, but there are other brands that perform just as well.
We had a sift through tons of Amazon reviews to help you figure out which wireless earbuds stack up. We looked at a few criteria, including how many neat features they have, colour options, charge duration and water resistance capability. Check them out below.

They come in slate blue, black, lilac, red and teal. The earbuds come with three tip sizes so you can find the one that fits snugly in your ear.

My physical therapist uses these, and he's always talking about how great they are — and anything with the physical therapist stamp of approval must be worth checking out.

The Bluetooth multipoint feature lets you connect to two devices at once, and they're compatible with iOS and Android.
