There has never been a better time to shop for earbuds. No matter what your budget is, you can find fantastic true wireless buds to keep you entertained at the gym or on your commute. The mid-range category, in particular, has seen some real competition, with heavyweights like Amazon and Google throwing down with budget-conscious brands like Anker and Tribit. You'd be forgiven for not counting TCL among the bunch — it's stuck mainly to affordable neckbuds in the personal audio category. With the MoveAudio S600, however, the company is looking to bring some premium features to a price point that won't break the bank.
Sony's WF-1000XM4 earbuds might be some of the best you can buy today, but they don't come cheap. At $279, it can be hard to justify that cost — no matter how great the ANC is. If you're looking for a similar design with a much smaller price tag, Sony's upcoming WF-C500 might be just the set for you.
There will always be an opportunity for a soundtrack whether it's a sultry evening in the woods or on a rumbly, jumbly bus. It just so happens that JBL is announcing a horde of headphones and a posse of portable speakers today, so you'll soon have new purchase options to think over.
You don't need to break the bank for a pair of true wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation. Hell, you probably won't even need a whole Benjamin. Aukey's Beyond ANC Hybrid earbuds, otherwise known as the EP-N5, only cost $59 most days and can be found for way less sometimes. But can your ears live with them? Check out our appended update below.
Everyone makes wireless earbuds these days. It's not just phone makers and startups, either — you could pick a brand name out of a hat, and, chances are, there's a pair of buds listed on its website right now. This sort of saturation does end up benefitting shoppers, of course. With so many options to pick between, you can usually score some for insanely low prices. Over at Lenovo's web store, you can grab a pair of earbuds for as low as $15 right now.
With every device maker and startup under the sun offering unique takes on wireless earbuds these days, it's safe to say the market is fully saturated. If your current buds are on their last legs — or you're finally looking to make the switch from wired headphones — you're in luck. You can score Samsung's newest Galaxy Buds2 or its high-end Galaxy Buds Pro for their lowest prices yet.
Samsung's latest pair of wireless earbuds haven't even officially hit the market yet, but ahead of a release this Friday, they're already getting their first software update. A much-needed enhancement to ambient sound and a couple of new options help to make these an even more well-rounded set of buds.

Samsung got into the true wireless earbud game early on, but its Icon-branded buds were unreliable and had terrible battery life. The Galaxy Buds line has been far superior, and Samsung has only beefed up its true wireless credentials over time. Almost every Unpacked event has featured a new pair of Samsung earbuds, and the most recent one was no exception. Alongside the new foldables, Samsung unveiled the $150 Galaxy Buds2.
When Carl Pei left OnePlus and started his own company, we all knew the drill. Nothing employed infamous OnePlus-style hype tactics from the outset, but — thankfully — it's time to finally see what the company has been working on. The Nothing ear (1) seem to have all the features you'd want from a set of true wireless earbuds, and their distinctive design will no doubt elicit the fawning adoration of fashionistas and influencers.
There are some immutable truths, even in these uncertain times. The sun will rise in the east, the tides go in and out, Coke is better than Pepsi, and Samsung can't go more than a few months without releasing new earbuds. The Buds Pro debuted earlier this year, and now there's a new entry in Samsung's true wireless lineup. The oft-leaked Galaxy Buds2 are official with a $149.99 price tag, which is $50 less than the Buds Pro (when they're not on sale). They have most of the same features, too.
