The AirPods Pro might be made by Apple, but that doesn't mean they aren't worth a look from Android enthusiasts. Apple's flagship earbuds offer a comfortable in-ear fit, a wireless charging case, and top-of-the-line active noise cancellation that's among the best you'll find in earbuds this small. And right now, Woot is selling them for just $189.99, a savings of $60 off the MSRP.
Mobvoi makes a bunch of earbuds under the TicPods banner, but the Earbuds Gesture are probably the company's most unique (and not just because of the name): you can take or decline calls by moving your head. They also have ANC and solid battery life, so there's a lot going on for just $70 ($20 off).
After more than three years in the true wireless earbud business, Anker has established a tight grip on the low to medium end market with dozens of products populating the $20-$100 range that often out-perform their price tag. Now it's ready to tackle a more premium segment with its first active noise cancellation buds, the Liberty Air 2 Pro.
Sony may not be among the most popular Android OEMs, but that doesn't mean its phones are subpar. We called the Xperia 1 Sony's best phone yet in our review last year, and now you can pick it up from Amazon for just $550 — and that's not all. This bundle also includes the top-tier XM3 wireless headphones with noise cancellation
RHA's first attempt at true wireless earbuds left a little to be desired, but the upgraded TrueConnect 2 that came out this summer offered enhanced sound and better battery life. The British audio brand is now back with a completely redesigned model that features active noise cancellation and wireless charging, as well as a brand-new Connect app.
In the span of a couple of years, true wireless earbuds have transitioned from being a luxury purchase to a commoditized, affordable product. Even within the category, features like USB-C or Bluetooth 5.0 that were once only found on expensive models have made their way to cheap sub-$50 buds. Now, active noise cancellation is going down the price echelon and the Tribit FlyBuds NC are a perfect example. $60 for a pair of TWS buds with a good sound seems too good to be true, but in reality, the FlyBuds manage to deliver on their promise without much compromise.
Wireless headphones have been around for years, but they've taken on increased importance now that phone manufacturers are leaving out the 3.5mm jack. Companies like Sony and Bose have been cranking out great options, but most of those products cost $200 or $300. That money can get you a lot of premium features like active noise cancellation and high fidelity sound — but do you need to spend that much? The Tribit QuietPlus 72 headphones cost just $70 and offer some premium features like ANC and multi-device pairing. However, the construction is lower quality, there are no customization options, and the ANC is merely okay — they don't excel in any one area.
We were pretty dang sure Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Beans Buds Live headphones were going to include active noise cancellation based on the details in a previously leaked video, but an update to the Samsung Galaxy Buds listing on Apple's App Store has the final proof positive we needed: A big, clear ANC toggle for the Galaxy Buds Live in the app's screenshots. New renders of the upcoming earbuds, including their charging case, have also leaked courtesy of WinFuture's Roland Quandt, who further provides battery life, specs, and prices for the bean-shaped buds.
Ever since it released the first TicWatch back in 2017, Mobvoi has been making affordable accessories that promise high-quality features at low costs. Earlier this year, it released the TicPods 2 series to fairly solid reviews. Now the manufacturer is expanding its range of audio products with the TicPods ANC, silicone-tipped Bluetooth earbuds with active noise cancellation.
As headphone jacks become more and more of an endangered species, wireless audio accessories are stepping into the spotlight. When it comes to truly wireless earbuds, there are a lot of options these days, but Huawei is hoping to stand out from the crowd with its newly announced FreeBuds 3i, offering active noise cancellation at a competitive price.
