Today's earbud competition is no longer totally dominated by Apple and Beats. Inexpensive headsets maintain a solid wireless connection, and many of them actually come packed with some very competitive active noise cancellation. And a lot of the buds I tried even fit my ears properly! I found some heavy-bass earbuds from Sony, a versatile offering from Google that’s hard to criticize, and even a headset that’s designed for gaming. You’ll see two pairs of active earbuds and two pairs of budget-friendly earbuds, so there's a pair for you no matter your need. Happy listening.
