Attempting to create truly wireless headphones has been a growing trend over the last year. Altec Lansing and New Normal are just a few of the examples that we’ve covered recently. Now a new project has launched on Kickstarter that takes it to a whole different level. Erato’s Apollo 7 Wireless Earphones has the same familiar in-ear bud design as similar wireless solutions, but Apollo 7 also features a water-resistant shell.

Walmart offers the JayBird X2 Sport Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds in Midnight Black or Storm White for $99.89 with in-store pickup. For comparison, this pair of earbuds has a $180 list price but typically sells for between $125-$130 depending on the color.

There are in-line controls for volume, playback and Siri operation, as well. We positively reviewed the X2’s, calling them “some of the best Bluetooth earbuds on the planet.” Rated 3.8/5 stars by over 1,700 Amazon customers.

SoundPEATS was one of those fresh faces. Its low-cost Bluetooth headphones and earbuds are amongst some of the the most popular options that we post. Over the last few weeks we’ve spent time with one of SoundPEATS most popular models: the Q9A earbuds.

Bluetooth headphones continue to evolve and manufacturers are leaning more heavily on the standard than ever before. Wired headphones still have a place in the heart of consumers, but as active lifestyles and connected devices like Apple Watch have risen in interest, wireless has become the rage.

Altec Lansing has announced a new set of “truly wireless” earbuds at CES that still offer many of the standard features that we’ve come to expect. The audio accessory-maker is touting the inclusion of GPS as just one of the reasons you should pay attention to the new Freedom True Wireless Earbuds.
