Best Integration: Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro

Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro made its way to the market with the launch of last year's Galaxy S21 Series, and for $200, they offered a well-rounded package. For audio, the earbuds combine a system of an 11mm woofer and a 6.5mm tweeter, the former being responsible for deep bass, while the latter helps produce audio with less distortion. The OEM also promoted a triple-microphone array and a Voice Pickup Unit, which would help separate your voice and ensure people on the other end could hear you clearly.

The earbuds feature several other quality-of-life features like support for 360-degree audio, automatic device switching, IPX7 rating, adjustable Active Noise Cancellation, and a Game Mode for reduced audio latency. Lastly, to ensure you're able to use the earbuds without the worry of battery life, Samsung has packed cells that allow for 8 hours of playback (without ANC; 5 hours with ANC on) and additional 20 hours available in the charging case (13 hours of power present in case).

Best Audio: Sony WF-1000XM4

The Sony WF-1000XM4 is a follow-up product to WF-1000XM3 — famous for its stellar ANC and sound profile. The XM4, which costs $279, improves the impression of audio prowess left by its predecessors and takes the earbuds to a higher level with a new compact design that not only makes the earbuds look better but even makes the charging case more pocketable. The latter was described as a pain point by several reviewers who used the WF-1000XM3.

To get into the details, Sony uses 6mm drivers that deliver audio while an additional diaphragm produces the bass range, and the integrated V1 processor enhances the audio quality produced by enabling LDAC codec and DSEE Extreme (Digital Sound Enhancement Engine). Speak-to-Chat, a feature popular on the bigger WH-1000XM4, is also available on these earbuds.

In the case of endurance, Sony claims a playback time of eight hours on a single charge with ANC active and 12 hours without it. The case adds 16 or 24 hours, depending on whether you use ANC or not.

Best Value: Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro

Soundcore is a brand that has held up quite well in the competitive wireless earbuds market. Not only do its offerings match other rival products, but in some cases, go above and beyond by offering additional features that make a user's life more convenient.

The Soundcore Liberty 3 Pro is the latest addition, which at $170, provides ANC, wireless charging, LDAC, and multipoint support, each of which makes it a highly attractive option. The OEM also includes a bunch of ear tips inside the retail packaging to ensure you're able to find a fit that is perfect for you.

For sound, Anker depends on a two-driver setup — one for bass and another for mids and treble — that doesn't shy away from delivering thumping audio with just enough clarity. Luckily you can tailor the earbuds to sound how you like with EQ settings in the Soundcore App.

Lastly, for battery life, the earbuds will last for eight on a single charge, with the case providing an additional 32. Although, you can expect this number to drop as you use the LDAC and ANC features, which take a toll on overall endurance.

Jabra Elite 85t join the OEM's long-standing list of audio accessories that have received positive feedback from users and reviewers. Like other options on this list, the earbuds feature ANC but bring a hint of uniqueness with the rare Bluetooth Multipoint functionality.

The design of the earbuds has a semi-open nature, which helps deal with the plugged feel earbuds with silicone tips tend to cause. But bringing focus to endurance, design-wise the earbuds have an IPX4 water and sweat resistance rating and battery wise, can last 7 hours on a single charge (5.5 with ANC on), and the case provides an additional 23 hours (19.5 hours with ANC on). For $230, these earbuds are an option worth your consideration if you're interested in fitness-related activities.
