True wireless earphones
Truly wireless earphones are in their infancy, and that’s exciting. Every company that’s birthed a set of buds has added their own genetics: connection methods, features, buttons, charging cases - all differ. There’s no standard yet. But there are plenty of ideas and, depending on which way your money goes, the potential for a huge range of functionality.
The best entries in this first generation will define the look and sound of the next. Perhaps we’ve been critical in this six-way smackdown, but that’s only because we see what wireless earphones could become – and that every current entry, for all their individual merits, has a kink or two to iron out.
