Finding the best wireless earbuds for Android can prove to be a tougher task than you may think. After all, there are tons of things to keep in mind. Things such as battery life, build quality, sound, microphone quality, battery life, charging features, onboard controls, value, and more!
That's why we're here to help you out with the whole process. Let us show you some of our top picks while also explaining why they are our top picks and then you can choose whatever fits you best.
So, without any further ado, let us get right into it!
We assume that most of you saw this coming from a mile away. The Galaxy Buds+ are pretty much the go-to choice for the average person who can afford them. If you don't really care about things like waterproofing and active noise cancelation, they are quite possibly the best wireless earbuds for Android that you can grab right now.
One of the main reasons we love the Buds+ is due to their great battery life. As far as battery and battery features are concerned, these are some of the best wireless earbuds we've ever seen. You can get 11 hours of use with a single charge and about 11 more with another. And if you need to charge them at the last moment, Quick Charging gives you one hour of playtime with a 3-minute charge.
Another thing we like about these earbuds is that they also offer a few extra features that you don't commonly find. One of the most useful ones is called "Ambient Aware" and it helps you listen to environmental noises when you need to.
It goes without saying that their sound is more or less as good as earbuds can get. They offer incredible bass, mids, and highs alike. And considering how portable they are and their pricing, we'd say that they are one hell of a steal.
Native noise isolation is pretty okay. But, the lack of active noise cancelation can certainly make these a tough buy for people who are commuting a lot. If you primarily need earbuds for commuting, maybe look into something with better noise isolation or decent noise cancelation.
Other than that, their microphone is also not the best. But that's where the downsides end.
- Very good audio reproduction
- Pretty comfortable
- Extra features that you don't often find in other earbuds
- The charging case supports wireless charging which is a welcome addition
- Great value
- Amazing battery life
- Mediocre noise isolation
- No ANC (Active Noise Cancelation
2: Tozo T10
The Tozo T10 offer without a doubt one of the best value-for-money deals we've ever seen. For just a bit less than $40, you get waterproofing, decent sound, and even a portable charging case. So, you can probably already see why we picked this is one of the best wireless earbuds for Android!
First things first, let us start by saying that these offer very strong base. That's great for bass lovers, of course. But anyone else may find them to be a bit too boomy. As expected, the highs are a bit overemphasized to compensate for the strong bass and that can be painful for some people. However, most reviewers don't seem to dislike their overall sound signature.
The wireless case that's included with the earbuds can give 14 extra hours of battery life while it supports wireless charging. So, we'd say that it's a great choice for traveling.
Without the charging case, you can expect to get about 4 hours of play time on a single charge. And while that's definitely nothing compared to the Galaxy Buds+, don't forget that they only ask for a small fraction of their price too.
As we mentioned above, this is a waterproof pair. To be more specific, IPX8 waterproof. This means that you can even submerge the earbuds under a very small depth (Usually a meter or so) without any issues. We obviously wouldn't recommend trying that out. But, just saying.
And as far as downsides are concerned, there really isn't a whole lot to complain about. Especially if you consider the fact that you get IPX8 certified earbuds for less than $40.
By the way, even without ANC, the passive noise isolation of these things is absolutely amazing. So that's another bonus point for value as well.
- Superb value
- IPX8 waterproof
- Amazing noise isolation
- Charging case gives a lot of extra battery life
- A bit too boomy (Can be an advantage for some people)
- Relatively small battery
The Jaybird Vista is one of the most expensive pairs on this list. And in return, you get good sound, decent battery life high water resistance, and a design that's made for people who love working out.
As you can see in the image above, these earbuds come with stability fins that are made for extra stability. This makes them suitable for activities like jogging. That aside, let us not forget to mention that they offer an IPX7 water resistance certification. You won't have to worry about getting them wet in case of rain.
One of our few complaints is that even at this price point, these earbuds still don't offer active noise cancelation. Of course, chances are you wouldn't want something like that during a workout anyway. But it's just worth noting even if it doesn't take away their position as one of the best wireless earbuds for Android.
Their charging case is also designed in a way that makes it easy to secure anywhere and gives you 10 extra hours of usage. Speaking of batteries, you can get about 6 hours of usage with these on a single charge - which is more or less the average of true wireless earbuds. Again, don't use the Galaxy Buds+ for reference as they offer better battery life than most of the earbuds that we've ever tried.
We don't have a lot to report in terms of downsides - which is to be expected at this price point. As we mentioned above, there is no ANC and the native noise isolation is mediocre. But, you generally want to be a bit aware of your surroundings while working outdoors anyway.
- Great sound (With a small exception on highs - more on that later)
- Decent battery life
- More stable on your ears than most of the competition
- Water resistance is always a welcome addition
- No ANC despite the relatively high price tag
Wireless headphones are a great way to increase comfort as you generally won't have to worry about cables anymore. The downside to this is that you also increase latency, and, in some cases, you also sacrifice audio and microphone quality.
While that's not a deal-breaker for tasks such as listening to music or watching a video, it can certainly be very bad if we're talking about gaming. After all, hearing the audio cues coming up with a delay can be very confusing and disorienting, to say the least. Especially if we're talking about competitive games like PUBG!
That is where the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless come in!
This pair offers a low-latency connectivity mode that's specially made for gaming. That's what sets the Razer Hammerhead apart from your average headphones and that's also why we're putting them in this list as one of the best wireless earbuds for Android!
With that said, do keep in mind that this is still not the ideal choice for competitive PC gamers thanks to the ever-present slight audio delay. And that's mostly due to Bluetooth limitations. Of course, mobile gamers won't have to worry about it as much since the skill gap is much lower due to other hardware limitations.
Audio latency aside, the Razer Hammerhead wireless also come with a low level of water resistance. Avoid submerging them under any circumstances. But, getting them a tiny bit wet while working out shouldn't be an issue. This means that you should be able to use them for a few jogs - but keep in mind that their noise isolation is pretty bad.
Sound is generally just okay. Boomy sound with mids and highs that are lacking a bit in detail. We expected a bit more from earbuds of this price point.
- Low-latency as far as Bluetooth connectivity is concerned
- Every little bit of water and dust resistance is a welcome addition
- Doesn't go deep into your ear canal
- Mediocre sound considering the price point
- Bad noise isolation (Can be a pro if you need to be aware of your environment)
Sony has previously released tons of decent-sounding headphones and these earbuds are not an exception. They sound great while also offering decent active noise cancelation and that easily places them on the top 10 best wireless earbuds for Android!
To be more specific, the offer punchy base without it being overwhelming, clear mids, and sharp highs without them being too fatiguing. They are basically Galaxy Buds+ with ANC!
Speaking of ANC, these perform remarkably well even when used in commuting. They are the ideal travel companion.
As you probably already expected, they come with their own charging case which, unfortunately, doesn't support wireless charging. And that's probably one of the few downsides as other than that, you get pretty good battery life.
To be more precise, the earbuds can last for up to 6 hours on their own and up to 24 hours when combined with the case. So, the case is rather huge but the earbuds are rather average as far as battery life is concerned.
They rest directly inside your ear canal which is something that may generally feel uncomfortable for some. However, you'll also find plenty of ear tips to choose from along with two different materials.
Despite the relatively high price tag, the microphone quality is still mediocre - which is something to be expected from wireless earbuds anyway. One thing that's slightly disappointing, though, and possibly the only downside, is the lack of water resistance and waterproofing.
Under other circumstances, we wouldn't even have to mention it. But when you pay well over $170 for earbuds, it's a shame to not find a feature/certification that is present in much, much cheaper earbuds.
- Great sound
- Decent battery life
- Plenty of ear tips to choose from
- No water resistance certification
- Portable charger doesn't support wireless charging
Are you looking for a pair of wireless earbuds with water resistance and great stability? Then we'd say that LETSCOM offers the best wireless earbuds for Android on that category!
For about $20, it's hard to go wrong with these.
Their sound is a bit focused on bass - which is a good thing for bass lovers. Just not so much for audiophiles. Mids are decent but as expected, the highs are a bit overemphasized to compensate for the heavy bass.
While you're obviously not going to get noise cancelation at this price point, the passive noise isolation is pretty decent thanks to the good ear seal. We wouldn't recommend these as your primary choice for commuting. But, for anything other than that, you're good to go.
One of the main reasons that we placed this pair on our list is not only thanks to how cheap they are but also due to how stable they can be on your head. This is mostly thanks to the ear-hooks that may feel a bit strange at first - but you quickly get used to them.
As far as battery life is concerned, not only you get a portable charging case, which, at this price point, is rather impressive by itself (Fix: It's only a mini carrying bag). But you also get 8 hours of battery life on a single charge without the help of the case at all.
This makes the LETSCOM wireless the second-best overall in terms of battery life on this list and they are one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest wireless pairs that you can get!
When it comes to downsides, the sound is a bit muddy at times and the same goes for the microphone. But, hey, at this price point, we really can't complain.
- Great battery life
- IPX7 waterproof/water resistant
- Great stability
- Mediocre sound and microphone
- A bit of an awkward fit for some
Updato is a website that's mostly focused on Android devices and gadgets. It only makes sense that most of you who are reading this article are fans of Android - and that some of you are mortal enemies with Apple. Still, if you want the best audio experience, we'd absolutely recommend checking out the AirPods Pro. They are one of the best wireless earbuds for Android!
One of the strongest points of these earbuds is their overall sound quality. The lows, mids, and highs are all remarkably balanced. The bass is strong enough to feel the thumb but not the point of being overemphasized and the highs are sharp without "hurting" you. No doubt one of the best-sounding earbuds we've tried yet.
Another strong point of them is their overall noise-isolation performance. By providing a decent fit into your ears along with ANC, the AirPods Pro are a great choice for commuting and noisy environments.
Of course, nothing is perfect and that applies to the AirPods Pro as well. As with almost all wireless earbuds, their microphone quality is mediocre at best. And while the microphone noise isolation is pretty decent, we wouldn't recommend these for making calls in very noisy environments such as subways.
Just like most wireless earbuds nowadays, the AirPods Pro come with their own wireless charging case. It can give you up to 24 hours of battery life while the AirPods on their own last for about 4.5 hours. That's definitely a bit low considering how much they are asking for. But, it should be more than enough for one long session before you have to put them in their case again.
All things aside, the additional ear-tips that are provided with the earbuds are a welcome addition too.
- Great sound quality
- Very good noise isolation/cancelation
- Charging case gives you a ton of extra battery
- Pretty comfortable considering the fact that they are in-ears
- No IP rating (Despite the very high price tag)
- Mediocre battery life
Anker is no stranger to wireless audio. And as far as budget to mid-range options are concerned, the Anker SoundCore Liberty Neo is one of the best wireless earbuds for Android you can grab right now. Surely, the name could be a bit smaller. But that's the least of our worries when looking for a decent pair of earbuds.
The sound quality is pretty decent - if only a bit lacking in terms of bass compared to other earbuds at the same price point. This may be a bit of a turn-off for bass lovers. But, we assume that everyone else will find the bass to be more than adequate.
As far as battery life is concerned, you can get about 5 hours on a single charge - which is to expected at this price point. The wireless case gives you 15 extra hours when you are on the road - but keep in mind that it uses micro USB for charging.
Another impressive thing about these earbuds is that they offer an IPX7 water-resistance certification. That's something that we often don't even see in high-end options for some reason. So, that's a big plus for us.
As far as downsides are concerned, we kind of have a rough time finding anything at this price point. You obviously can't expect these earbuds to sound as good as other picks that cost twice or thrice as much. What you pay is what you get but that doesn't stop the SoundCore Liberty Neo from offering great value.
Last, but not least, you'll find three different sizes of ear-tips inside the package which is a great addition as far as comfiness and stability are concerned.
- Great value
- IPX7 certification is a welcome addition
- Generally balanced sound (Especially for the price point)
- Some people may find them to be a bit uncomfortable/weird as they rest inside the ear canal
When it comes to smartphones, both Samsung and Apple are known for releasing some of the most expensive devices. Especially when compared to their competition. However, that's not the case with earbuds. The competition is tough as hell here and the Jabra Elite 75t are truly amongst the best wireless earbuds for Android!
Starting with sound, these are definitely more bassy than their competitors (Galaxy Buds+ and AirPods Pro). That can be both a good and a bad thing depending on who you're asking. People who love bass or genres that rely a lot on it, such as dubstep, will definitely find this to be a great pair.
If you prefer balanced sound, well, we're not saying that the lows on these are completely overwhelming. But, compared to the Buds+, they definitely overemphasize the bass a bit.
As you already saw, these are rated IP55 which means that they can withstand a few drops of water and sweat. But, we definitely wouldn't recommend submerging them anywhere and maybe don't even use them under heavy rain. IP55 may not be much - but it's better than nothing.
Recording quality, as per usual, is just about average and just as good as wireless earbuds can get. And the same goes for microphone noise cancelation.
Since there is no ANC, the passive noise isolation is just about as good as the Galaxy Buds+. So, these are more than good enough for environments with medium noise levels. But as far as commuting is concerned, maybe get the AirPods instead.
If you rely on your virtual assistant to get through the day, you'll love the fact that these are compatible with all of the most popular ones. This includes Alexa, Google, and Siri as well.
- Strong bass without it being ridiculously boomy
- IP55 certification is a welcome addition
- Decent battery life (7.5 hours)
- Software for more control over certain features
- You either love or hate the ear-tip design (But note that there are three different sizes)
As far as headphones and earbuds are concerned, it's hard to create a "Top 10" list without mentioning at least one Sennheiser product. After all, they are known for making some of the best audio gear in the world, so, it's no surprise that the Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 steals a spot as one of the best wireless earbuds for Android!
Its bass feels smooth but not overwhelming, mids are perfectly balanced, but the highs are admittedly a little bit all over the place. There are tracks where these earbuds sound really sharp while at other times there is a bit of dullness to the sound. And all that is a bit weird considering the brand name and the price of these things.
Also, keep in mind that the bass is generally not very powerful here. And while that's not considered a downside from an audiophile's point of view, bass lovers will probably prefer something a bit more thumpy.
At 7 hours, their battery life is just about average considering the fact that we're looking at a pair of high-end earbuds. The charging case that has a premium feel to it also delivers 21 extra hours which should plenty enough for most people even while traveling.
Speaking of premium feel, the overall build quality of these earbuds is amongst the best on this list. They feel very sturdy and expensive on your hands.
At $250+, you'd obviously expect that the Momentum 2 would come with ANC - and they do. But keep in mind that it's somewhat mediocre. While they manage to block most of the outdoor noises, they really struggle with stuff like engine sounds. So, maybe not the best pick for commuting.
There's not a whole lot to mention in terms of downsides. But we've got a few things to mention briefly down below.
- Very sturdy with a premium feel to them
- Decent battery life
- Most expensive pick on this list
- Mediocre ANC performance
- The high-frequency spectrum can be a bit uneven. While that's not a big problem, it's frustrating when you look at the price tag
