Finding the best wireless earbuds is hard because they’re often expensive or hard to get right. But there are some good ones out there that are worth the cash. Just be warned that they won’t work with the Switch or other consoles out of the box. You’ll need some extra peripherals to game with them (which are the first two items on this guide) and you’ll need to be sure that your PC has Bluetooth. These are also great for working out, which seems mainly what they are developed for. If you want over-the-ear wireless headphones, you can check out our guide on that, too.
If you want to play it on PS4, you’ll need an adapter. The same goes for the Switch.

If you want tiny, they don’t much tinier than the TREBLAB Xfit. The charging case you store them in is remarkably small and is one of the best reasons to get them since it makes them much more portable. The battery is relatively decent and the case easily shows you how much charge it has left. The earbuds themselves have a decent enough sound quality with easily understandable button commands while also being resistant to water. But, as is the case with most of these headphones, make sure you like this style of earbud that jams inside your ear canal first.
The TOZO T6 earbuds are also some quality wireless earbuds. Their sleek, minimalist design is a good plus but their incredibly high waterproof rating and small size are the reasons to pick these up. The case also charges wirelessly, which is useful. They also come in white, black, or pink so be sure to pick the right one.
The Boltune earbuds aren’t small as the TREBLAB or TOZO headphones, but their different form factor might be attractive for those who don’t want some so small and round. These have bars that come down, making them a bit easier to handle and harder to lose. They’re also waterproof and have a decent battery, but they also charge through USB-C, which is incredible.
The Mpow M30 earbuds have the waterproof label, handy USB-C charging, small case, and sleek design like some of the other earbuds on this list. However, they appear to be one of the more comfortable pairs as they have some added structures for more support when laying against your ear. This would likely help them stay in your ear, which can be an issue for some people. This may be the pick for those who prioritize ergonomics.
The BEBEN earbuds might look a little plain when compared to the other headphones, but they’ve got all the standard features: waterproof, a small case, decent battery life, and more. Basic, but acceptable.
The Anker wireless earbuds do appear to be a little bizarre, but it is in the sake of ergonomics, so it’s just fine. In fact, that’s one of the best things about them. Their extra wing-like structures allow them to stay in your more comfortably, which, again, can be a problem with other types of wireless earbuds. It’s got other more standard features like being waterproof and a good battery life, but their ability to stay in your ears is the biggest selling point point.
The VIPEX headphones are the most unorthodox headphones on this list, but they are here for their odd yet effective form factor. These are most like AirPods in that they are shaped a lot like Apple headphones, meaning they will more easily stay in your ear as they cradle the rides in them. Of course, these are waterproof, have easy pairing, and charge through USB-C, but their form factor is truly its best feature and gives it a unique twist.
While the other headphones on this list aren’t super expensive, they aren’t as cheap as the Kurdene earbuds. They aren’t as sexy as the others either, but have many of the same basic functions like being waterproof and having easy pairing instructions. Again, other headphones may be better, but there’s nothing wrong with just wanting something cheap.
