Small ears? No problem

Small ears don't have to limit your choices for good earbuds and headphones. Now you know where to look, and above all, we think the Samsung Galaxy Buds 2 are some of the best ones you can buy.

The buds have an elegance to them, and what gets them to the top is their sound quality and feature set. With up to six hours per charge with ANC on, and up to 30 total with the case, these are good earbuds to fit in with your everyday lifestyle.

If you still want to stay on the true wireless earbud train, you can't go wrong with the Anker Soundcore Liberty 4. Those AirPods-like stems are great when you want to talk, but it's the rest of the package you get that makes them so easy to trust. 

Lastly, if on-ear headphones are more your style, I'd recommend going with the Marshall Major IV. The attention to detail with the design is darn impressive, as is the incredible battery life and sound quality.
