Best true wireless earbuds of 2021

By Blair Altland

Here are the best earbuds of 2021

Throughout the year, we've reviewed 15 different earbuds from various brands and at different price points.

Of those, there are five earbuds that stand out from the rest and arrive as notable alternatives to the latest from Apple, Google, and Samsung.

Best all-around

Pairing stylish designs with a robust feature set, these are the best everyday drivers we've reviewed thanks to ANC, 32-hour battery life, and customizable EQ settings.

Best sounding

As Marshall's first pair of true wireless earbuds with ANC, the new Motifs arrive as some of the best-sounding buds on the market. The audio balance and EQ out of the box is as good as it gets, which is only made better by ANC and a slick vinyl-wrapped charging case.

Best value

When it comes to getting the best bang for your buck, the Skullcandy Dime earbuds are hard to beat. At $26, you're getting a true wireless design complete with a rugged design.

Best for working out

As for workout earbuds, look no further than the Jaybird Vista 2. These true wireless earbuds come backed by ANC, but also IP68 waterproofing and a unique fabric design with silicone wing tips to help stay in your ear.

Best for gaming

Those looking to take their mobile gaming up a notch, the EPOS GTW 270 Hybrid earbuds deliver low-latency connectity via a USB-C dongle on top of Bluetooth. That flexibility makes these just as good of everyday drivers as they are for getting in the zone.
