EARBUDS AWARDS 2020 [The Very Best True Wireless Earbuds] – AirPods vs Galaxy Buds vs Jabra vs …

by birtanpublished on November 24, 2020

So if you're looking to buy a new pair of wireless earbuds you probably realize there are so many options out there and in 2020 tons of new ones came out with longer battery life better microphones new features and some of them have totally different shapes and designs but which one's actually the best pair you can buy well in this past year i tested hundreds of different earbuds and reviewed dozens of them for you guys so in this video i'm breaking down my picks for the absolute best earbuds you can buy in seven different categories so no

Matter what you're looking for i think everybody's going to fit into one of these seven categories so hopefully this helps you decide what the best pair of earbuds to buy is now getting into this the seven categories i have the first one are actually the best base so if you're looking for a big base you want to listen to i mean i think you guys know who you are if you're looking for big bass that's category number one category two is the best microphone quality because let's be honest we're

All on zoom calls all the time now and sometimes you wanna just walk around your house and do other stuff so having good microphone quality is definitely a big and becoming more important factor when you're looking to buy earbuds category 3 is the best active noise cancellation so if you travel or you just want to block out sounds around you what's the best pair you can get category 4 is the best sound quality category 5 is the best for working out so you want to make sure that it fits well has good features and just makes

Sense when you're trying to do a more active lifestyle then of course category 6 is the most comfortable and honestly i think if you guys were to guess right now what my pick was for the most comfortable i would bet a lot of you probably wouldn't guess this one this is kind of surprising we'll talk about that number six and then of course number seven it's just the best overall so if you don't know exactly what you're looking for

And you say just give me a good pair overall i don't know like i want a balance of everything what's the best pair you can buy so seven categories a lot to talk about in this video definitely stick around for all of these because i mean i have some runner-ups for each of them and some of these earbuds win in several different categories but with that being said guys let's jump into category number one the best bass like i said before i think you probably know who you are if you're

Looking for bass if that's your main priority so if you're listening to bigger bass you just want some head shaking bass and a pair of ear buds the best prayer you can buy honestly in my opinion even though they're a year old they're still the reigning champ the jabber elite 85 or 75 t's not the 85 t's the jabber elite 75 tees are my pick the 85 ts came out this year but the base was dialed back a little bit so last year's earbuds have a fantastic bass you can adjust it in the app to make it even bigger if you

Want and i think a lot of people who are considering buying these if you're not a big fan of bass these might actually have too much bass for you so i mean if that gives you any idea like they do an excellent job they also have a lot of great features on board and they've remained one of my favorite pairs of earbuds for the entire past year for a bunch of reasons and actually win some other awards in this video but they are a little bit more expensive selling at around 180

So if that's too much for you and you still want big bass a good alternative is actually the sony xb700 earbuds sony is so annoying with their naming i don't know why they call them xb700s but i know that the xb i think stands for extra bass uh it says it all over the box extra bass and they definitely deliver with that claim so they dialed things back compared to the jabras they're a bigger design they're a little bit clunkier they don't have quite as many features but they

Definitely deliver on the base so if you're looking to spend uh like around 100 110 the sony xb700s are an excellent buy and that brings us to category number two the best microphone quality the best call quality on a pair of earbuds and like i said before this is so convenient to go hands-free and wire-free just set your phone down somewhere and be able to walk around and do other stuff while you're talking on the phone uh and these are actually my pick right here might surprise you there are so

Many different earbuds out there and a lot of them have like some of them are really expensive and have terrible microphone quality some of them are cheap and have good quality my pick for the best microphone quality from all of my testing is actually this pair right here so my number one pick for the best microphone quality is actually the galaxy buds live as you can see i have them right here i think these sound really good a nice natural balanced tone it's not blown out it's not compressed too much and i think it sounds really

Good in a studio environment here but also outdoors in a noisier environment near traffic these earbuds do an excellent job with their microphones so category three is the best active noise cancellation and i've tried dozens of different anc earbuds in tons of situations from loud planes to trains and just sidewalks like everywhere that could possibly be loud i've tried all like all of these different earbuds and my pick well first explaining what i'm measuring based on so

What i was using for this was what is the most powerful anc on a pair of earbuds in the most common situation so for me the most common situation is when you're on a jet or you're hearing some kind of engine sounds so what does the best job of blocking out those engine sounds and from my experience in my own testing the jabra elite 85 ts that just came out a couple months ago actually do the best job of that so these are very impressive a major upgrade from the 75ts even though they

Dialed the base back a little bit honestly for most people that's probably a good thing to give you a more balanced audio profile they also have qi wireless charging now and of course the anc is incredibly powerful i actually have my full review of that i'll link it down below and in that review i actually showed you the relative power so i did a test to show you how good the anc was on those compared to the other runner-ups that i'll talk about so i mean the other runner-ups number two

Which is very close to number one is actually the sennheiser momentum true wireless twos these have incredibly powerful active noise cancellation and they have great sound quality just giving you an overall great balance for when you're traveling these are my go-to earbuds now of course i have to give two honorable mentions here the bose quietcomfort earbuds and the airpods pro both have excellent active noise cancellation in a lot of environments they're just not quite as powerful as

The jabras and the sennheisers especially when you're talking about the sounds of a jet and and that leads us into category 4 the best sound quality this one's a little bit more subjective because there are different things you could look for in sound quality for me i really care a lot about low level detail clarity and overall balance and out of all the earbuds i've tested the sennheiser momentum true wireless twos absolutely deliver it they sound the most real and true to life

And so i definitely like listening to them the most when you're talking about just raw sound quality now like i said they have active noise cancellation and a lot of other features so they're a little bit more on the expensive side a lot more on the expensive side so if you're looking to save a little bit of money and really all you care about is sound quality sennheiser also has a more affordable pair where they cut out the anc they dialed things back a little bit they're a little bit larger a little bit less

Aesthetic but they still have great sound quality these are the sennheiser cx400 bt not the best name sometimes i forget that name but they still do an excellent job and i'll put a link down below actually for all of these earbuds if you guys want to know what the latest prices on any of these i'll put the links down in the description of this video so you can go check out the latest sales so that brings us to category 5 which is the best for working out which

As i said before you have a couple factors baked into this one so you want to make sure that the earbuds fit really well and are very comfortable and stay in your ears you want to make sure they have the right audio profile so the right kind of sound and you want to make sure they have the right controls and features for working out so for me the clear winner here is actually the jabber elite 85 ts i love working out with these because like i said they fit very well they stay in my ears and they're very

Lightweight on top of that they also have the right sound profile that i'm looking for so they're a little bit heavier on bass which i think is great for the type of music i listen to when i'm working out and then really the big one what a lot of people tend to overlook is that these have physical buttons on the outside so touch controls are great on a lot of other earbuds but when you're working out what people tend to not really always think about is that touch buttons like physical buttons are better because

One if you're sweaty or if it's raining and you have wet fingers your hands are wet then a lot of times touch controls don't work and the second thing is if you're running and it's a little bit colder outside maybe it's winter and you're wearing gloves again touch controls usually don't work with that physical buttons work in both of those situations which is why i prefer the job or 85 t's when i'm working out now the jobbers are great for working out but if you're looking for something that stays in your ears a little bit

Better when you're doing more dynamic workouts so some crossfit type stuff i mean it's definitely tough for any earbuds to really stay in your ears for that but i found that one of your best bets is going to be the samsung galaxy butts plus these are all around a solid pair of earbuds in general of course great sound quality great feature set like they're really a solid pair of earbuds but what they have that i really like for working out is actually the

Adjustable wing tips so you can choose not only the ear tip that goes in your ear but also a wing tip to grab onto the outside of your ear to make sure they're staying in as well as possible definitely a great choice and kind of an honorable mention here as well the airpods pro are another one again it depends on your style of workout the airpods pro they stay in very well and really what i like them for is that they have siri on board so you don't have to touch anything if you're doing like farmers carries and you just want to set

A timer you can just talk to siri set a timer walk around carrying your plates or whatever and it'll let you know like when you're when your time's up so it's kind of a nice feature to have but again it just depends on what style of workout you're looking to do all right so category six you guys are probably going to laugh at this one these earbuds took a lot of heat when they came out but honestly i kind of like them they're definitely really comfortable these are actually the microsoft surface buds so

I mean really the problem is that they look like gauges like giant white circle on your ear but i mean honestly they're really comfortable if you have to work for like an eight-hour day and wear earbuds those are my number one pick for the most comfortable earbuds out there now if those are not your style which i totally understand another great pair of earbuds for comfort is actually the galaxy buds live and i was really happy to see a totally new design a little bean shape it just fits in your

Ear really nicely very comfortable and even though it doesn't really block out sound that well the active noise cancellation helps a little bit and i'm really excited to see like next to your second gen galaxy buds live to see what samsung changes because they're definitely on to something these are incredibly comfortable and they're really they do a great job in general you just want to make sure that you don't accidentally bump them because if you adjust them even slightly the

Sound quality can be like really significantly changed so then that brings us to category number seven the best overall earbuds if you said to me mike i just want a pair of good true wireless earbuds i don't really know what i want just get me something good i would probably get you one of these now i'm gonna break this down kind of like you know how google does that with places like they have four dollar signs three dollar signs two and and one so four dollar signs being like

The the highest budget the most expensive one if we're going four dollar signs here it's going to be the sennheiser momentum true wireless 2. these are just a great pair of earbuds with active noise cancellation amazing sound quality great fit great touch controls like a really solid pair of earbuds overall and i mean they're just my favorite to use on a day-to-day basis now if we want to dial it back to three dollar signs your best option is going to be either the airpods pro which if you're an apple user

They tie in really nicely they switch between your imac and your iphone really easily but for a lot of other people i would probably say the jabber elite 85 ts are a better option they have more powerful anc they have physical buttons and i think aesthetically they look a little bit better it's just personal preference there but the 85ts are a solid pick dialing it back to two dollar signs a clear winner here is going to be the galaxy buds plus these are selling for like 140-ish dollars

Again i'll put links down below to all of these but these are just an all-around great pick and i think most people who are looking for earbuds and don't need active noise cancellation would be more than happy with this pair right here definitely one of the best pairs you can buy out there and i think i mean in the comments below you'll probably see tons of people talking about the galaxy buds plus honestly people are probably going to be mad that i didn't give them more awards than just this one but

Like trust me they're just they're a good pair of earbuds and then dialing it back to one dollar sign this gets a little trickier because there are so many pairs out there but if you're looking to spend less than like a hundred or less than eighty dollars for a pair of earbuds i'll actually be making a full comparison of my top five favorite budget earbuds i know i said i was going to do that like a month or two ago but like there's just so many different ones to try out i've been trying dozens

And dozens of budget earbuds so i'll share my picks with you in that video but if you're in a hurry i mean a great option is going to be the tick pods anc they give you active noise cancellation they're like 70ish dollars and they're a pretty solid buy for that price point but guys those are my picks for the best earbuds of 2020 the 2020 earbuds awards if you want to call it that let me know which ones you like best and why or if there's a pair that i didn't mention in this video that you're a big fan of comment down

Below let me know why you like them let me know what features about them are very exciting guys honestly there are so many great earbuds out there these are just the ones that i chose tons of great ones i hope this video helped you if you enjoyed it consider liking and subscribing thanks for watching guys i'll see you next time
