Sony's WH-1000XM3 over-ear headphones have been lauded for their audio fidelity and noise cancellation since they launched, but not everyone wants to devote so much space in their bag to headphones. Enter, the WF-1000XM3, a set of true wireless earbuds that promise a high-quality audio experience with active noise cancelation. The WF-1000XM3s are bulkier than most other true wireless earbuds, but you get something for that extra mass. These earbuds offer superb sound and effective noise cancellation almost on par with Sony's full-sized headphones. They're spendy at $230, but this is one of those times you get what you pay for.

True wireless earbuds have come a long way in a few short years. What was once an expensive product for early adopters that offered inconsistent performance and subpar audio quality can now be made to a far higher standard at a far more accessible price point.
In fact, the market had been flooded by affordable wireless earbuds over the past couple of years, so much so that it's hard to decide which ones are worth spending your hard-earned cash on. After trying a few pairs out and researching a few more, we're able to recommend some of the best true wireless earbuds you can buy for less than $100. Read More
True-wireless earbuds are practically the norm now, but what if you're looking for something just a tad more premium? Well, we've got what you need, and it comes with a markdown. Master & Dynamic is known for its high-end audio products and the use of premium materials, and its MW07 wireless earphones are among the most luxurious ones on the market. Thankfully, they just dropped to $219, which is $80 less than their original retail price. Read More
Klipsch has been making high-end audio gear for more than 70 years. With the better part of a century's worth of audio expertise informing their design, the company's T5 true wireless earbuds have a lot to live up to — and while they lack some of the frills I've come to expect in premium earbuds, they absolutely nail the fundamentals.

Jaybird was one of the first companies to popularize the true wireless earbud form factor, but its Run and Run XT products weren't without their fair share of issues. These new Vista models will hope to right the wrongs of their predecessors, offering a smaller/lighter design, better battery life, and a USB Type-C port for charging. Read More
There's no dearth of true wireless earbuds options out there, but most deliver sound quality that's good-ish, at best. To get superior audio quality, you usually have to go wired or at least settle for a wire between the earbuds. German audio company Sennheiser's late entry to this market, the Momentum, bucks this trend and is arguably the leader in audio quality — though it comes at a steep $300 price. If you have your eyes on a pair, Fry's currently has them on sale for $200, or $100 off.
Danish audio brand Libratone has a reputation for attractive speakers and headphones that also sound pretty decent. Its Made for Google USB-C earbuds and made and more wireless-but-wired Track+ models both impressed us, so we're excited to see the company launch its first true wireless earbuds. Read More
When it comes to over-ear headphones with active noise cancellation, Sony's WH-1000XM3 are probably the best in class, but the Japanese tech giant hasn't yet wowed us with an equally impressive pair of true wireless earbuds. That could be set to change, however, with the introduction of the (also obtusely named) WF-1000XM3, coming next month for $230/£220/€250. Read More
True wireless Bluetooth earbuds were introduced in 2014 by the likes of the Bragi Dash and later popularized by the Apple Airpods. Since then, we've seen incremental developments like fitness tracking on the Jabra Elite Active 65T and wireless charging on the Samsung Galaxy Buds, but the form factor has essentially remained the same — a pair of earbuds stored inside a charging case that goes in your pocket. Aipower, a sub-brand of Aukey, is looking to shake things up with the Aipower Wearbuds (that recently went live on Kickstarter) by combining true wireless earbuds with a wrist-based fitness tracker.
