Neckband earphones look like they are here to stay, now Sony have decided to produce a truly high-end pair of earphones.
AirPods are the first completely wireless earphones from Apple, and they’re sold as the perfect companion to the iPhone 7.
They are wired, in-ear headphones from Audio-Technica which are excellent value for money. The Audio-Technica LS70iS offer great sound quality and are ideal for an audiophile on a budget.
Jabra’s truly wireless earbuds throw Alexa into your ears.
I have been reviewing the Brainwavz BLU-100 Bluetooth earphones which are priced at a wallet-friendly £34.50.
Bluetooth earphones are ten-a-penny, but the SoundMAGIC E10BT have more pedigree than most. They’re made by the company responsible for producing some of the best budget wired earphones in existence. Moving to a wireless with mic design ups the price somewhat, with the E10BT costing £60, but I’m okay with that if they’re as good as their wired stablemates.
The QuietControl 30 is a very different pair of headphones, however. Instead of a full-on, over-the-ear design, these are in-ear headphones of the “neck-bud” style.
JBL’s Reflect Mini BT headphones are very much designed with sport in mind, but their lightweight design, strong sound and competitive price make them a good choice for less extertive activities too.
