By now, it is beyond speculation that wireless earbuds are the present and pretty much the future of audio devices. We have seen through the flooding amounts of earbuds being launched for the last two years or so. Every brand from Samsung to Apple to OPPO to LG wants a piece of the pie. In fact, they are quickly getting cheaper every year which suggests their intentions to have almost if not everyone buy them.

We have also seen this through the good old headphone jack that has been slowly been fading away on smartphones across all price tiers. So, which earbuds should one go for be it entry-level or flagship quality? Well, that’s what this list is all about.
