Ditch the Cord with These 8 Wire-Free Headphones
Completely wire-free earbuds are a more complicated endeavor than wireless earphones (like Bose QuietControl 30 and Jabra’s Sport Coach), which are becoming ubiquitous. Wire-free headphones aren’t tethered together, so the earbuds need to be synced with your smartphone and with each other. While the first wire-free Bluetooth earbuds date back to 2014, the announcement of Apple’s AirPods has really fired them into the mainstream. The buds below represent the best completely wire-free options. Just stay alert: misplacing one can be a costly mistake.
