True wireless earbuds have gotten dramatically better since they made their first appearance a few years ago. New models offer improved connectivity, increased battery life, and better sound. Many even offer active noise cancellation and battery cases that are Qi-wireless charging enabled. The new Jays t-Seven True Wireless earbuds offer all of these advances at an accessible price.
I’ve long been a fan of V-MODA headphones, so I’m excited to report that they have just announced their first Bluetooth active noise-canceling headphones, the V-MODA M-200 ANC. Working in tandem with the new V-MODA app, listeners will be able to personalize their M-200 ANC noise cancellation level and their sound with EQ presets.
Soundcore, Anker’s premium audio brand, took to the virtual stage the present the next generation of their Liberty truly-wireless earbud line, the Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro.
To celebrate its 75th anniversary, JBL has expanded its headphone lineup with the new JBL Tour Series. These headphones, which will offer both an over-the-ear and a true-wireless option, are perfect for business professionals who want a sleek design with smart features and advanced technology.
Jabra has done a fantastic job with its true wireless earphones. The original Jabra Elite Sport was good, and they’ve only gotten better with each iteration. Now they’ve released the Jabra Elite 85t. It packs even more tech than the excellent Jabra Elite 75t and offers native active noise cancellation. But is the new offering better than the Jabra 75t?
Jabra recently announced their upcoming Elite 85t true wireless earphones. These will be the fourth generation of true wireless earphones from the company and the first to have native active noise cancellation. Sort of. Yesterday Jabra rolled out a firmware update to the Elite 75t/75t Active and added noise cancellation to those existing headsets. It’s impressive on many levels.
For the past two months, I’ve been using Shure’s first-ever wireless noise-cancelling headphones called the AONIC 50. Introduced as a part of Shure’s wireless listening campaign with Adam Levine, the AONIC 50 headphones have left me wondering exactly why I’ve never tried Shure’s brand before.
Jabra is world-renown for excellent headphones and productivity gear, and the latest Jabra Evolve2 85 headphones are no exception. They’re engineered to help keep you focused on your work with active noise cancellation and busy lights that let others see you’re on a call. Available in USB-A or USB-C, the Evolve2 85 are worth the investment.
Some months ago, I declared the Jabra 75t the “current champ of true wireless earphone.” I currently switch between them and the Master & Dynamic MW07 Plus as my goto daily TWEs- The M&D when I want top fidelity and the Jabra 75t for activities like walking my dog, Nava. Now we’ve got the impressive Jabra Elite Active 75t.
AUSOUNDS became a brand that I enjoy using after their August 2019 launch, and they seem to be set on delivering quality products at a rapid pace. And what better stage to showcase your audio solutions than at CES 2020?
I became a fan of CleerAudio in 2019. Starting with their Cleer Ally (which promises 12 hours of Battery life), to their Cleer Enduro which I am currently reviewing; I’ve found their products to be solid. So I was surprised that the company announced new products that are already promising to be better than what they already offer. First are Cleer’s ARC headphones. Complete with an open-ear design that doesn’t actually COVER the ear, the ARC work so you can hear your environment all the while listening to your music. An interesting take on headphones for use, this is safe…
Huawei begged for comparison to Apple’s AirPods when they made the FreeBuds 3 look like the ubiquitous earbuds. The FreeBuds 3 style is so close to AirPods, that from a few feet away, you’d be forgiven for assuming that the white stem with a chrome end dipping low from your subway seatmate’s ears was the non-noise canceling version of Airpods, but you’d be wrong.
When Jabra entered the ‘true wireless earphone market’ a few years ago with their Elite Sport, I was immediately impressed. They fit reasonably well and sounded great. The Jabra 65t built on that first offering in significant ways, including comfort, sound, and much more. (Read our review.) Their latest offering, the Jabra 75t, takes things to an entirely new level.
I love the fact that thanks to Gear Diary, I’m able to check out products from companies with whom I’m not familiar. AUSOUNDS is one such company; they sent a pair of their $199.95 AU-Flex ANC WIRELESS Neckband Earphones for me to try. I’m so impressed that I’m seriously considering purchasing their true wireless earphones.
Master & Dynamic have been on a roll lately with a new product every few months. They just announced two new true wireless earphone offerings. The MW07 PLUS are an update to the spectacular MW07s while the smaller and more affordable MW07 GO offer a similar, but smaller design. Both look great but the MW 07 GO really caught my eye.
Two of the biggest things I’ve longed from my Airpods seem simple enough — Active Noise Cancellation with a battery life of longer than 3.5 hours. And if they could come in black, that wouldn’t be bad either. Luckily with the AU-Stream ANCs, I finally might have all of the things that I wanted.
The Jabra Elite 85h are the most well rounded Bluetooth headphones I’ve ever used; checking the box on almost every category including sound quality, active noise canceling, clear phone calls, great battery life, intuitive controls, and water resistance. When paired with Jabra’s companion smartphone app, I’m not sure any other Bluetooth headphones can compete. The Elite 85h retail for $299.99.
Some months ago, I received a pair of Master and Dynamic MW60 over-the-ear wireless headphones. Since they arrived, they have become my go-to headphones. Now the company has announced their first headphones with active noise cancellation, the Master & Dynamic MW65 over-the-ear headphones. What do I think about them? Put simply, we are giving them an Editor’s Choice award.
I’ve impressed with the way wireless headphones with active noise cancellation have evolved. Many now offer amazing sound, great battery life, and effective ANC. And many cost $300 or more. Not the TaoTronics Hybrid Active Noise cancellation though. They cost under $100. But are they any good? That was my question as I unboxed the review sample.
The new Edifier W860NB over-the-ear headphones are my new favorite for commuting, by far. They feature Bluetooth 4.1, Active Noise Cancellation, aptX, NFC, and smart touch controls on the side of the right ear cup. These fashionable black headphones are comfortable, easy to use, and last a seriously long time before needing to be recharged.
I’ve long been a fan of JBL’s headphones. They’re well priced, sound great and offer the features many of us most want. The JBL LIVE 650BTNC is no exception. For under $200 you get excellent sound, effective noise cancellation, and access to Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. I think they’re great; you will too.
