4 Wireless Earbud Headphones That Aren’t Apple AirPods

Apple has certainly made a splash this month with its wireless AirPod earbuds, but they aren’t the first manufacturer to cut the cord. Several companies have been offering Bluetooth earbuds, from high-end audio to entry-level.

Beats By Dr. Dre Powerbeats 2


Inspired by Lebron James, the Powerbeats 2 are IPX4-rated sweat and water-resistant and with 6 hours of battery life will make it through your entire workout. Dual-driver acoustics power music through each earbud delivering Beats signature sound for an unparalleled listening experience. And they have a no-slip grip in-line microphone and remote for calls.

Bose Soundsport


The tips of the Bose Soundsports are formed in a unique shape to create a gentle seal at the entrance of the ear canal, which helps improve audio performance. There’s also an extended flexible wing that uses the ridge of your ear for support and provides significantly improved stability—no need to force them in. The soft, silicone material and rounded profile delivers an unmatched combination of comfort and stability for long-term wear. The acoustic ports in each earbud are positioned to resist sweat and weather, and the hydrophobic cloth keeps moisture out. An in-line microphone is available for phone calls. View Bose Soundsport

LG TONE Active


The TONE Active is designed for exercise or outdoor activity and feels lightweight in your ears because the batteries are stored in a piece that rests snugly around your neck in addition to two sizes of stabilizer tips. They are IPX3-rated water and sweat resistant and battery life is rated at up to 9.5 hours. You can also make and receive phone calls with the microphone.   View LG TONE Active
