Here at AC, we've reviewed dozens of the best wireless earbuds and best wireless headphones for years now, and each member of the team certainly has our own favorite brands and devices. From the more audiophile-targeted Jabra 85t earbuds to more affordable earbuds like the Creative Outlier Air V2, there really is a pair for every ear, and every phone. That got us wondering what the fine folks on the AC forums were wearing...

I use samsung galaxy buds. They work great for me.

After using the Samsung Galaxy Buds I then moved to the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live and really like how they fit and sound.

I use the beats pro they work great for me and stay in my ear with the ear hook.

Tribit Flybuds noise canceling is about $44 on Amazon with current coupon discount. This company makes reasonably priced products that give a lot of bang for the buck and don't sacrifice much.

It seems to be about earbuds, but the title also mentions earphones/headphones. I've been using the Ultrasone Pro 900s on my phone for quite a while. They certainly weren't made for that purpose, but they work great. I had to use a backup when the wire shorted out and I had to get that replaced. I found that Grados also work well.

  • I use the Galaxy Buds Live paired with a Note 20 Ultra for a hour to an hour and a half most ever day jogging or working out. I very seldom listen to music I stream using Pocketcast, TuneIn, Radio.com or MLB, no complaints Galaxy Buds Live work fine for this along with if I receive a phone call.
  • Buds Live. Tried loads over the past few years inc the Buds+ but always kept going back to my AirPods for comfort and convenience. Took a week or so for my ears to adjust to the Buds Live but now they're perfect. Running, Cycling, driving most of the day with them in and barely feel them in my ears
  • Galaxy Buds+ for day-to-day use. For audiophile use (listening to music, etc.) I usually use wired over-the-earphones.
  • Galaxy Buds+ for outdoors & portability, but at my desk I use the Anker Soundcore Life Q20 BT headphones. Great sounding headphones for $50.
  • MEE Audio X10. They get about 5 hours battery life and sound good enough for my uses. Bought them for about $30 when they first came out. What I really need is a decent pair of USB C headphones that sounds as good as my old MEE Duos.
  • Jabra's Elite 75T for me. Love these earbuds. The sound is amazing! A+
  • I have the Samsung Buds Plus which are very nice and very comfortable. Recently, however, I have been using the Klipsch T5 II. Although the Klipsch are fairly comfortable, the Samsung's are the more comfortable of the two.
  • Buds Live. I have a pair of Cowin KY2 and they sound great. The issue is the fact they are in ear. Since I like to listen to sounds or light music while sleep, the Cowin are uncomfortable, becasue they're in ear. Buds Live work well for this in my case. They have excellent sound and extremely cimfortable, in my opinion.
  • Pixel Buds 2 with my Pixel 5. I really like them, but I understand they aren't for everyone.
  • Echo Buds, but I'm not happy with the fit. Or the fact that I usually disconnect the call when I try to correct the fit.
  • I use either Pamu Slides or Hyphen 2 depending on my mood. They both have great sound and booming bass. Plus they're inexpensive compared to the Galaxy Buds.
  • For general 'out and about' use I've switched to a pair of Aftershokz Aeropex. Only pair of headphones I can enjoy all day that are so comfortable throughout that I literally have forgotten I'm wearing them when not using them. Design isn't for everyone, as they do not in any form obstruct outside sound (being vibration based and not covering/blocking the ear), but that also makes them ideal and safe for driving, cycling, etc. Sound quality is noticeably lesser than other competitively priced options, but for general 'background' listening or podcasts, it's more than fine; for more discriminating listening, I turn to the Klipsch X12, which (to me) is the runaway champion in sound quality among the bluetooth segment.
