Which Ear Buds??

Jan 13, 2022,15:14 PM

Looking for a pair of wireless ear buds to mate with

my iPhone.  They don't have to be AirPods, could be Sony,
Technic, B&O, etc.  I want the best sound, noise cancelling
and the best value.  My only fear is losing one of them.
Anyone have a suggestion?  I currently use the wired 
ones from Apple, sound is OK, it's just that the wire is 
always in the way and with them being plugged into the 
phone it is hard to put the phone in a pocket.

...Air Pods Pro (I think this is the name) with noise cancelling have been fine for me. My hearing is not the best, but I like the noise cancelling and the charge seems to last quite awhile. I think they're also on sale most places these days. If you have...

The seamless integration and interaction with the iPhone and the AirPods is unparalleled. Literally just need to bring them to the phone to pair them when you get them. I got the AirPods Pro for like ~$160 a month ago or so, they have been routinely disco...

I've gone through a lot of headphones and switch back and forth between earbuds and cans frequently. The best wireless earbuds I've had by far are the latest gen from Sony. They moved to some new hybrid foam/gel type ear tips which are comfortable and pro... 

I have to put in a plug for the Jabra Elite 85Tt!

I had the 65t and these were good, but the 85t are actually a great set. Noise cancelling is rated best in business (and my experience bears that out). Power reserve is excellent as well. They will run for several hours and then drop them in the case and ... 

I consider myself really knowledgeable in this area…

You did not specify a price range… Which is really the key issue. The other thing I would recommend is purchasing portable DAC… This is really going to change your sound quality. I have a dragonfly DAC and Audio Technical buds…about $900 total. ...  

Help me out, what is a DAC?

Essentially it processes a digital signal using a secondary chip. Many in the home systems I have built in DAC but the dragonfly is far superior IMO to what is in your iPhone.

I think the AirPod pro are the best. I use mine for several hours almost daily.

If you looks one it can be replaced. The noise canceling is great and if you use them with your iPhone as primary source they work seamlessly.
