If you’ve been looking for a pair of wireless in-ear Bluetooth headphones to use at the gym, while jogging, or during your commute, here’s another great deal for your consideration. Jaybird is a recognized brand in this space, and while the company’s Freedom 2 earbuds aren’t the most groundbreaking pair out there today, they warrant attention at an all-time low of $ 72.93 on Amazon.
The Freedom 2’s look just about the same as any other pair of Bluetooth earbuds that are linked by a slim cable, which is meant to wrap around your nape.
For years now, the quirky feature of most wireless headphones has been, well, wires. Now, thanks to companies like MJYUN, we have truly wireless headphones and at an affordable price. In fact, 15 of our readers will be getting them for free and the rest of you can take advantage of a 20% off coupon.
When I say truly wireless, I mean not just no wire connecting to your phone, computer, or other host device, but no wire connecting the buds either.
One of the coolest gadgets I saw CES, according to myself, my friends, and my family, was the Pionears Wireless Earbuds ($ 69.99) from Origaudio. At first glance, it looks like an oversized Zippo lighter (about the size of a deck of playing cards), but it’s really a charging case for two remarkably tiny earbuds. And the lid snaps open and closed (thanks to magnets) just like a lighter, but for a much healthier use case! The storage case itself has a 4,400mAh battery; and what is really cool is that it slips into a charging dock with integrated A/C wall plugs, so no cables are needed.
The unit is sold in Silver or Silver with Black, but I think the all-silver version looks the best. The compact earbuds can be adorned with several sizes of ear tips. They only get three hours of battery life; but when it’s that fun whipping out your charger, maybe that’s part of the charm.
The earbuds list for $ 119.99, but as I write this, they are on sale for $ 69.99. Origaudio is generous with sales and discounts, so check its website often.

Back in 2016, The Verge called the JLab Epic 2 Wireless Sport Earbuds the best headphones for running. Two years later, JLab is back with the Epic Sport earbuds, the successor to its popular headphones, and they’ve only gotten better. I’ve been testing the Epic Sport headphones for a few weeks now, and it’s clear that JLab has hit the mark once again.
The $ 99 Epic Sport buds sound excellent, thanks to a pair of 8mm drivers (the same ones that are in the Epic 2) that still provide a great balanced sound with strong bass. The inline controls are intuitive and easy enough to use on the go, and the customizable earbuds (six different tips and three fins come in the box) make finding the right fit easy for most people.
Sometime in the past two years, wire-free earbuds graduated from clumsy to impressively good, and from not quite worth it to the only pair I wear. Apple deserves a lot of credit for this: it managed to get people to wear what look like short cigarette sticks in their ears in exchange for a completely seamless connection between device and earbuds. But there are others that have moved the ball forward, too, like Bragi, Jabra, Samsung, and Bose.
Those last two companies have produced what we consider to be particularly good wire-free earbuds: the Samsung Gear IconX (second generation) and the Bose SoundSport Free. So, in the latest episode of Versus, we did a head-to-head (ear-to-ear?) comparison of these two pairs, which range in price…
I usually listen to music using a cheap pair of HTC headphones, for a variety of reasons that I’ve discussed before. But recently, I’ve been trying out a few pairs of Bluetooth earbuds as my full-time headphones, part of my duties as a Circuit Breakerwriter, and I’ve come to the realization that Bluetooth headphones make me incredibly anxious.
The reason is simple. With a wired pair of headphones, there’s a physical tether linking my phone to my ears. So long as there’s music flowing through the cables, I can be safe and secure knowing that my phone is three feet away on the other end, right where I expect it to be. That cord serves as a link, a safety net that makes sure that the most important electronic device I carry around is still…
AirPods are the best truly wireless earbuds available because they nail the essentials like ease of use, reliability, and battery life. There are alternatives that definitely sound better from Bose, B&O Play, and other. But they often cost more and all of them experience occasional audio dropouts. AirPods don’t. I’d argue they’re maybe the best first-gen product Apple has ever made. Unfortunately, I’m one of the sad souls whose ears just aren’t a match for the AirPods — and I’m a nerd who likes having both an iPhone and Android phone around — so I’ve been searching for the best non-Apple option.
But some 14 months after AirPods shipped, there’s still no clear cut competitor that’s truly better at the important stuff. They all lack the…
