10 of the Newest True Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds for Tether Free Listening

Original Article: Ideaing, Briley Kenney

Do you hate headphone wires as much as I do? Do they ever get in your way or tangle when you’re exercising?

Would you like to shed wires completely?

Then you need wireless Bluetooth earbuds.

 

What are “True Wireless” Bluetooth Earbuds?

 

Nike PowerBeats 3 Wireless Headphones

Not all Bluetooth headphones are created equal. Some still have wires, so they’re not truly “wireless” as advertised.

 

Bluetooth headphones are great. Bluetooth earbuds are much better.

Why? Because they’re incredibly small; often no bigger than a hearing aid. You can place them inside your ears and forget about them. And because they’re so tiny, they’re easier to conceal. While we don’t recommend listening to music or a podcast during your morning conference, you could probably do it and get away with it.

 

Why You Need Them

They allow you shed the wires that can bog you down and get in the way. If you’re doing a physical activity like running or even mowing the lawn, wires get real annoying, real fast.

I can’t remember how many times I’ve bent down only to have the headphone plug yank out of the port with conventional headphones. Wires suck!

The real benefit, however, is that you can leave your phone in your pocket, or stream directly from a smart watch on your wrist via a Bluetooth connection. Actually, you can often connect them to other types of media players too – like an MP3 player or iPod.

 

Installation & Ease of Use

Bluetooth earbuds are incredibly simple to use. It takes only a couple seconds to sync them with a phone or MP3 player via Bluetooth. Once they’re synced, you shouldn’t have to do it again.

Some earbuds – like the Apple Airpods – are designed to connect automatically to a device as soon as you put them in your ears. No fiddling necessary!

 

Cost

There are many prices, because some earbuds are simple, while others are more advanced. Earbuds with a built-in fitness tracker and personal coach are usually a little more pricey.

The earbuds on this list can range anywhere from $50 to $400. For that reason, you’ll have to refer to each model on our list for a more accurate price.

Erato True Wireless Headphones Buying Guide

Erato True Wireless Headphones Buying Guide

View Original Article: Ideaing, Editor in Chief, Stuart

Breaking free of the wires in your life is like coming home and kicking off your shoes – it just feels good. For music lovers of every type, having a good set of headphones that you really love is super important. Losing the wires while finding a set of headphones you love is an epiphany.

Lucky for you, Erato has come out with a full line of true wireless headphones that give you the freedom to work out, travel, or strut your stuff, without getting tangled in a mess of wires and frustration.

 

What Are True Wireless Headphones?

It might sound obvious, but true wireless headphones are Bluetooth connected headphones that have no wires. Many headphones like the Panasonic WINGS or Jabra Halo headphones connect to your phone wirelessly via Bluetooth, but still have a wire between the two ear pieces. True wireless headphones, like Erato’s line-up, have two separate ear pieces that can be uses together or individually.

 

Why You Need It

As I found from trying these first hand, once you have a comfortable pair of Bluetooth true wireless headphones, you’ll never go back. The convenience of no wires is just too liberating. When working out, cleaning the house, working at my desk, or doing other hobbies, not having to manage a wire is a convenience that I now appreciate. For example, when going for a jog, I always hated wires flapping around. Now though, I just set them in and forget about them. On the rare occasion I go back to using wired headphones, I consistently find myself frustrated with dealing with wires.

 

Cost

Erato has a full line up of true wireless headphones with price points for every level of music enthusiast. At the entry level, Erato offers the Rio 3 at $99.99. The Muse 5 are the mid-range option, priced at $129.99. On the high end is the Apollo 7, priced at $249.99.

 

Disclosure: Erato had enough confidence in their headphones that they provided me, the most cynical writer at Ideaing, with the Muse 5 and Apollo 7 for first hand reviews in the past – and I never gave the headphones back.
