Are wireless earbuds worth it?

Wireless earbuds are great if you're constantly on the go and can't stand those pesky long cables that get in the way of your hands. Wireless earbuds are also great for runners, or those doing strength training in the gym who listen to music to get them going. The difference between wireless earbuds and your conventional cable earphones are battery life and durability. The thing with wireless earbuds is that you're going to always have to charge them if you're a heavy user.

Are JBL wireless earbuds good?

When it comes to headphones and earbuds, JBL triumphs in brand affinity. There is a reason why JLB earbuds are priced slightly higher than the usual brands, thanks to the constant upgrades in research and technology. Their designs are always almost durable and rugged, and still offer the best in sound class. One customer even shared: "They really hit the mark! For the money I paid I get very nice actual noise cancellation (I commute on subway to work and listen to podcasts) and great audio for music, podcasts, and conversations."

How to choose wireless earbuds?

There are a few factors to weigh before buying a pair of earbuds, and they normally narrow down to:

  • Price

  • Sound quality

  • Battery life

  • Active noise cancellations

These days, most earbuds have good Bluetooth chips for strong transmission. Imagine listening to your favourite song and there is a lag. This is also pretty evident in earbuds that have poor microphones, which can contribute to poor latency.

Do look out for wireless earbuds with charging stations. Having a good case allows your earbuds to charge and they won't go missing either!
