In May, a lot of Chinese mobile phone manufacturers almost unanimously launched their own true wireless headsets. The problem now is how to buy the in-ear wireless headphone that suits you. Don’t worry, this article will come to your rescue with some amazing insightful tips.
Some Amazin In-Ear Wireless/Bluetooth Headphones Released in May 2021

- On May 20th, OPPO Enco Free 2 noise-canceling headphones were released, priced at $119
- On May 20th, Vivo TWS 2 officially went on sale, priced at $109.
It can be seen that in just half a month or so, the top mobile phone manufacturers in China have launched their own true wireless headsets. Coupled with the rumored Apple AirPods 3 and Sony WF-1000XM4 noise reduction beans(will cost around $280), it is not difficult to find that there are more and more choices of TWS headsets today.
Choosing In-Ear Wireless Headphone That Suits you
Sadly, due to technical and volume limitations, truly wireless headphones do not have the ability to impact more than 10,000 yuan at this stage.
Some people who are still using wired headsets but are troubled by the disappearing 3.5mm headphone jack and those who are already using TWS headsets and want to update can take this opportunity to start.
So, how do you choose a truly wireless headset that suits you?
1. The Brand of Mobile Phone You Use Should be Given Priority to When Choosing Your Brand of TWS Headset
Whether it is a truly wireless headset or a wired headset, the most important thing is the stability of the connection.
The headphone line interface of the wired earphone may be worn out or even broken after being used for a long time, and when we listen to the sound, it will become distorted.
The true wireless headset is a wireless connection. Once the connection is unstable, the listening experience will be very poor.
Therefore, only real wireless headphones that have been deeply adapted to the product and have undergone repeated tests are the most secure in terms of connection stability.
At the same time, in terms of the functional operation of the headset and ecological interaction, it must be the most stable to pair your own mobile phone, tablet, or even a PC with a truly wireless headset from the same brand. e.g pairing Samsung buds pro with Samsung galaxy phones is ideal. the same way you will get the best performance when you pair an Apple AirPods with an Apple iPhone or iPad
If you opt to use other true wireless headsets that are different from your own mobile phone brand, there may be a certain degree of unstable connection or lack of functionality.
2. Listening to songs? playing games? Making calls? What is the core appeal?
If you are dissatisfied with the TWS headset of the same manufacturer of your mobile phone, or you are more concerned about other points besides function and connection stability, then you need to see what your own core demands are.
If you are looking for appearance, then you can choose according to your own preferences; if you are after sound quality, or you like equipment with a specific sound, then it is recommended not to blindly place an order even if it is a promotional event, first go to the offline experience store.
Go for a trial experience and then purchase. After all, the earphones are ultimately inserted into the ears, and the listening experience is actually very subjective.
Here are my personal observations: traditional earphone manufacturers such as Sennheiser’s Momentum True Wireless 2nd Generation, mainly promote sound quality. Actually, there is no big gap in the performance of daily pop music.
On the other hand, Samsung’s buds sound like I personally feel that they have a better listening experience, but they are not so comfortable to wear. To be specific, the buds+ are not so comfortable to wear for a long period of time.
Therefore, if you like to play games, want a cool look, or listen to your footsteps, then choose the “true wireless gaming headset” that you think looks good. The premise is that you have heard and are familiar with this brand: as Razer, Nubia Red Devils, etc. have all launched true wireless gaming headsets, and I personally think that the shape is really pretty cool.
However, if you feel that these are not stable and competitive performance is important, then refer to the previous point and buy TWS headsets of the corresponding brand of mobile phones.
If you are pursuing noise reduction effects, in actual scenes, as long as it is marked that the headset has active noise reduction, the noise reduction effect in daily use will not bring you much difference. If you really want to find the one with the most noise reduction, look at the officially announced noise reduction parameters and choose the largest number.
Finally, if you want to make calls more convenient, it is recommended to choose Apple AirPods shape, a truly wireless headset with a pole, the microphone is somewhat better than the bean shape.
However, if you are often making calls in a noisy environment, such as on the subway in the morning and evening rush hours, then it is better to use wired headphones with a microphone or simply hold it.
3. Is it Comfortable to Wear and in Which Scenarios?
The earphone is not only for listening. Therefore, wearing is also one of the important factors in the purchase of true wireless headphones.
To learn if it’s uncomfortable to wear. I suggest you try it yourself.
In addition, you must also consider the environment you often use. If you take out the earphones in a crowded space, it is easy for them to fall off when trying to hold them.
Similarly, if you wear them during exercise, ensure that the plug fits snug/firm so that it doesn’t fall off when you shake.
At present, the development of true wireless headphones can be said to be preliminary, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. At the moment when TWS headsets are limited in size and technology, and cannot fully talk about “sound quality”, The major thing we can focus on is whether they are comfortable to wear and whether they can support daily high-frequency use.
Well, the above are the points we need to pay attention to when buying a truly wireless headset.
