Apple AirPods Pro
Like AirPods, better than AirPods. This true wireless model enhances the sound quality of Apple's earphones, while also adding active sound cancellation .

Do not miss the support for Siri and the case is compatible with wireless charging.

The Beats brand has been acquired by Apple for some time, so the products of the well-known headphone company are certainly among the most suitable for pairing with iPhones, thanks above all to the Apple H1 chip.

- REVIEW : Beats Flex
Those looking for earphones exclusively for playing sports may need special features: firstly, resistance to splashes (to avoid problems with sweat), but also more.
Bose SoundSport Wireless
Designed specifically for sport (as the name suggests), these headphones have a rubber cable that connects the two earphones and “fins” to secure them well to the ears. Obviously they resist splashes, have an autonomy of about 6 hours and a handy zip pouch to carry them around.
AfterShokz Trekz Titanium
One of the most curious products on the list, but no less interesting. The Trekz Titanium are bone conduction Bluetooth headsets and represent a valid alternative to the solutions seen so far, especially for sports use. They allow you to listen to sounds through vibrations, thus leaving the auricle free to hear everything that happens around the user, such as traffic or other people's speeches. The structure is light and waterproof, has physical controls and also integrates a microphone. Autonomy is 6 hours for playback.
- REVIEW : AfterShokz Trekz Titanium
Although the true wireless models are the most fashionable, there are those who still prefer the Bluetooth headphones “with cable”, those that have the wire that connects the two earphones.
It is always convenient to be able to hang them around your neck like a necklace (and, proportionately, they cost a lot less).
If you are looking for a pair of wireless earphones with the headband that connects the two headphones, perhaps a model without too much effort, probably the Sony Wi-C310 will suit you. The cost is quite small, but they are Bluetooth headphones with 9 mm drivers, Bluetooth 5.0 and autonomy of 15 hours (with support for fast charging). In addition, the two earphones are dated with magnets (they stick together to avoid tangles during transport), the microphone is of good quality and there is no lack of the classic three-button remote control.
All the products described may undergo changes in price and availability over time, therefore we always advise you to check these parameters before 'purchase.

The first step from which to start in order to choose your new Bluetooth headsets wisely is to understand the main use you want to make of them. For those who simply need devices for listening to music during their daily movements, the opportunities are endless, while those who want greater sound quality or are looking for products to use during the sports activities must take into account more stringent parameters.
In any case, there are features common to all headsets that can be easily compared and that provide a good overview of the quality offered. Here are the ones we have taken into consideration most carefully, trying to establish parameters that are easy to understand for a large number of users.
- Design : the aesthetic and structural aspect already makes it possible to make an important division between the various types of earphones on the market, most of which are in-ear or earbuds. Among these it is then necessary to further distinguish between those true wireless , completely wireless (now most) and those that have collars or other connections between the two earphones. In addition, you must also pay attention to the quality of the materials and other additional features, especially the waterproofness for Bluetooth sports headphones.
- Technology : despite being small products, the differences on a technical level are by no means negligible. We are not just talking about driver sizes or impedance values, but also about the number of microphones, audio amplification technologies and noise canceling systems (ANC). Not to mention still quite innovative headphones, such as those that adopt bone conduction.
- Compatibility : most products included in our lists have a very wide compatibility, thanks to updated Bluetooth versions (5.0 and higher) and good hardware quality. Some of the best Bluetooth headsets also feature support for aptX codecs. Do not forget the compatibility with smartphone apps, which often add other controls for audio adjustment.
- Autonomy : this parameter is fundamental for Bluetooth headsets, since it represents the true Achilles heel for some models. Having a good battery life can often make a difference for those who use their earphones a lot, but fast charging support or charging cases can also offer valuable help.
- Functionality : Thanks to the high competition in the market, wireless earphones are now full of interesting features. In addition to support for voice assistants (Siri, Google Assistant or Alexa), we often also find active noise cancellation (ANC), automatic play / pause when wearing or removing and many features available from the smartphone application, such as personalization equalizer, fit tests and much more.
