Wireless Earbuds: 10 Best iphone bluetooth earbuds 2017
Here are the best iphone Bluetooth Earbuds and wireless Earbuds. iphone Bluetooth Earbuds work with iphone easily. Here’s a look at a bunch of top Wireless earbuds that you can pair with the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus (and every other Bluetooth-enabled audio device).
The iphone 7 and iphone 7 plus are Apple’s first iphones to drop the headphone jack. And while you can keep using old Wireless earbuds by Plugging those into the adapter that comes in the box that gets old as soon as you discover you left the little dongle at home connected to a speaker and you can’t listen to any music.
Wireless Earbuds are best for:
- Lightweight: They’re tiny, and easy to keep in a pocket.
- Sealing out the sound: A good pair will seal your ear canal from the outside world, improving sound quality and letting you set the volume lower. They can even beat noise-canceling headphones on planes.
Apple AirPods > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus are an iterative upgrade of the 6s generation of iPhones, but the loss of the headphone jack is a slight concern for some. Luckily, Apple has produced its own wireless versions of its EarPods(Wireless Earbuds), branded as AirPods.
AirPods easily pair with any iOS device and offer Siri and hands-free calling capabilities. They come in a travel case and iOS 10.3 features find my AirPods, both of which should help you on the way to not immediately losing them. You can read more about them in our AirPods review and, if you don’t like the colour, there’s also a company that’ll customise them for you – but it’s fairly pricey.
AKG N60 Wireless Earbuds > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
Noise cancellation is one of the best aspects of on-ear headphones. The technology is clever enough to cut out interfering frequencies that might hum above your tunes. This pair of headphones from AKG is exceptionally good at what they set out to do.
They are also foldable and relatively compact, which is pretty handy as sometimes even the best on-ear headphones can take up a little bit too much space in a bag. This makes them an excellent choice if you’re always on the move commuting or at airports.
Given their travel focus, AKG also promises up to 30 hours’ battery life, which is incredible for wireless headphones. The N60s also have a passive mode which means they can still be used for a period after the battery is flat.
B&O Beoplay H5 Wireless Earbuds > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The Beoplay H5 Wireless Earbuds is the latest product from high-end audio manufacturer B&O, famous for providing users with high quality, crisp sounding audio. However, with the H5 wireless, the biggest draw is arguably its design – it’s small, lightweight, discreet and ideal for those that are sick and tired of wires.
The ends can be easily attached thanks to the built-in magnets, allowing them to be worn as a necklace when not in use. The best part? There’s no clunky middle part that rests on your neck, housing the battery and other tech found with similar wireless earphones like the SoundPEATS also featured in our roundup.
It’s not all about design either, as comfort was also a huge focus for B&O with the H5 Wireless Earbuds. The earphone housing is made from moisture-resistant material, the tips are heat-sensitive and once you’ve found your perfect fit from the seven pairs of ear tips provided, you’ll have no complaints.
Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats3 > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The Beats by Dr. Dre Powerbeats3 are Bluetooth earphones designed for those who want to take their music on workouts, but also to have long 12-hour listening sessions without charge.
Through its ‘Fast Fuel’ quick charging ability, you can grab a quick 5-minute charge that will give you an hour of playback.
Its standout feature is ‘Class 1 Bluetooth’, which allows you to connect and listen to your music at 20-30 metres from your iOS device. We don’t see the feature being of particular interest, given that your iOS device is often less than 2-3m away, but it’s nice knowing you can listen to your music while doing the gardening…
The earphones feature RemoteTalk, a control pod to change your music without having to use your phone. It comes in a variety of different colours.
At £169.95 it’s very expensive, so it’s harder to recommend over other earphones that offer a similar design, function and sound quality.
Bose QuietComfort 35 > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The word comfort is the model name and the £289 Bose QC35s certainly live up to it. The wider headband makes for a sturdy fit and the cups are pressed around your ears with a good level or pressure. These are over-ear headphones and the foam is incredibly soft and luxurious feeling, and Bose says the cushions are manufactured from synthetic protein leather and contain a silicone bead for passive noise reduction.
You can connect the QC35 headphones to two devices simultaneously and switch between them seamlessly – just pause on one and play on the other. We found wireless performance to be excellent but you can use the headphones wired should you need to – not all devices have Bluetooth after all or you might run out of battery power during a long journey.
Denon Globe Cruiser > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
Denon’s Globe Cruiser headphones definitely hit the high-end, premium look that the company was looking to achieve with them. Featuring a combination of material and metal with a lack of cables, the Globe Cruiser looks the part while still being extremely comfortable to wear for long periods. This is thanks to an easily adjustable headband with numbers on each arm to remember your perfect fit, along with soft, leather-covered memory foam earcups.
The Globe Cruiser headphones boast wireless connectivity with Bluetooth 4.0 built-in, but it also offers a standard wired experience for audio devices without wireless connectivity, but also for when the headphones eventually run out of battery power. You may not be able to use the built-in noise cancellation or Bluetooth connectivity, but at least you’re not entirely stuck without music.
iT7x2 Foldable > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The iT7X2s are a pair of Bluetooth enabled headphones created by iT7 Audio, a company founded by former Premiership footballer Ian Taylor. The great thing about Bluetooth headphones is that there are no wires to worry about – no more tiresome untangling to do before you play a song. It gives you more freedom to move around without having to worry about your headphones getting caught on something and ripped off.
The downside to Bluetooth headphones is usually battery life, but the iT7X2s combat this by utilising Bluetooth 4.0 technology, allowing for less battery consumption on both ends: the iT7X2s have an average life of around 22 hours on a single charge, and can last up to 400 hours on standby. The best part is that if the battery does run out, the headphones come with an old-fashioned audio cable that you can plug in and continue listening to music with.
Jabra Move > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The Jabra Move Wireless is a great headset for those looking for great quality audio without wanting to pay £100s. As the name suggests, the Jabra Move Wireless is wireless thanks to the inclusion of Bluetooth 4.0 technology, and built-in NFC provides an easy pairing process for those with applicable smartphones (sadly, you can’t use the iPhone NFC chip for anything apart from Apple Pay). They should last around 8 hours on a single charge, and are rechargeable via microUSB – don’t worry if the headset battery dies, as you can always plug in the supplied 3.5mm cable for a wired, no-power-required solution.
The Jabra Move Wireless has a pretty simple design, but it works. We like the inclusion of a fabric headband as opposed to plastic or leather, as we feel that the fabric feels more comfortable when worn for long periods of time. It’s dirt-resistant and tested to withstand abuse, although we’ve had a few loose threads appear over time.
The Move Wireless headphones features a built in microphone that can be used to take calls and use Siri on iOS, as well as built-in volume and media controls for easy access when on the go.
Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The Jabra Sport Pulse Wireless Earbuds are pair of in-ear headphones that’ll help motivate you during exercise. How? While it’ll provide you with music during your workout, it also measures your heart rate and offers regular updates on your progress without having to get your phone out of your pocket.
While at first glance the headphones may look uncomfortable to wear, the extra portion that houses the heart-rate tracker actually helps to keep the headphones in place, with the small rubber wing offering additional support. They’re very comfortable to wear and should stay in your ears in even the most intense workouts if you find the right size wings and buds.
Jaybird X2 Wireless Earbuds > iphone Bluetooth Earbuds
The X2 Wireless Earbuds in-ear Earbuds are very much designed for sporty types. They’re sturdily built, sweat-proof, and come with a handy carrying case for when you need to slip them into your backpack or gym bag. You can also get them in several different colours, to match your day-glo trainers.
The trick with in-ear headphones is to fit them firmly inside your ear in order to get the best sound quality. I don’t get on very well with most in-ear headphones as I find that they rarely fit properly and tend to fall out as soon as I start moving around.
Fortunately, Jaybird doesn’t take any chances here, as the X2 headphones start off with three different sizes of ‘fins’, which fit into the outer ear to keep the Wireless Earbuds firmly in place even when you’re running around and doing sporty-type stuff.
