Sonos has been cutting the cord going back to its Move speaker, only to go further with portability by coming out with the Roam. They're both in the same system, yet feel very different. So which one is worth listening to? It really is all about where you want to go.
Samsung takes different paths with the Galaxy Buds Pro and Buds Live, but those paths also cross in a few ways, making this comparison all the more interesting when breaking it down to the key points like we did.
You're not likely to see both a pair of headphones in the box of your newest smartphone nor a 3.5mm headphone jack on the phone. If your budget has room for a bargain, you've got some good choices to consider in this list of the best wireless headphones under $100.
Good headphones are out there, ready to fill your ears with the kind of sound you're pining for, and that includes voice assistants like Alexa. The Sony WH-1000XM4 is the best of a tightly-contested group because of its penchant for opening things up beyond just Amazon's voice.
Tribit makes a point of ensuring that longevity takes precedence over everything else with the Flybuds C1, and that does go well with the solid audio quality. You sacrifice a couple of things to get that combination, but there's plenty to like despite that.
Having a digital assistant while on the go can be really helpful, especially in those moments when your phone might not be easy to grab. One way to simplify that is to access it with some compatible headphones.

You've either heard of or used Android Auto, but Android Automotive is something altogether different.

It used to be that you wouldn't be able to cancel out annoying background noise when you put in a pair of true wireless earbuds, but that part is no longer true. Noise cancelation isn't a niche feature anymore, but rather something you can find on a variance of options for your ears. And once you try them, it's hard to go back.
Bose figures a unique design with a steady and secure fit will be enough to keep runners focused on where they're going. And while the Sport Open Earbuds are primarily aimed for an active crowd, the fit and comfort applies equally to everyone wanting to wear them.
Jabra has been among the top of the class in true wireless earbuds — and continues to stay there with the Elite 85t — but its legacy predecessors in the Elite 65t shouldn't be overlooked as a budget alternative.
The headphone jack may be gone from your phone, but it doesn't mean you'll have to spend hundreds of dollars to get a pair of wireless headphones. If you're on the hunt, save more than a few pennies with any choice listed in this group of budget models.
Aukey is quietly turning out true wireless earbuds that sound better than their price tag would otherwise indicate, and that's exactly where these two sit. But how do you choose between two pairs that seem to be so similar? It's all about the ears.
