Best true wireless earbuds 2022

True wireless earbuds remain all the rage as they are the pinnacle of wireless headphone innovation. Packing great sound quality, exceptional battery life, and a charging case in a super portable case is an incredible engineering feat. Apple/Beats headphones take it a step further, though, especially when pairing with an iOS device. This is thanks to the H1/W1 chip, allowing one-click pairing, seamless switching between devices, and system-level integration on iOS.

We do expect this to change with the release of the AirPods Pro 2 - there's improved noise canceling, a better charging case, and better sound quality on offer, and now that we know they're coming, we can start looking forward to the new best earbuds! Until then, we'll just have to wait until we get them in our hands.

Best wireless earbuds

The verdict is in

It shouldn't surprise anyone, but the AirPods Pro are the best true wireless earbuds. They feature active noise cancelation, great comfort with multiple ear tip sizes, decent battery life with up to 4.5 hours on the side of the earbuds with ANC enabled, and a compact wireless charging case. Honestly, outside of battery life, the AirPods Pro will be tough to beat when it comes to true wireless earbuds.

Our runner-up, the AirPods (2nd generation) and Powerbeats Pro, aren't surprising either as they share the same H1 chip found in the AirPods Pro that lets you switch between your Apple devices super effortlessly. All three sets of earbuds charge over Lightning, and the AirPods Pro and AirPods (2nd generation) are even more effortless, thanks to their wireless charging cases.
