The Apple AirPods 2 come with great improvements and additions such as wireless charging. The second-generation AirPods have a new chip that increases battery life and improves connectivity.

Design-wise, there are no extensive updates done with the Apple AirPods 2. Instead, what Apple focused on is enhancing the shortcomings of the previous model. The AirPods 2 now come with a better battery life thanks to the addition of a charging case. Wireless charging capabilities are a big leap because it means you can forgo the use of charging cables. The AirPods 2 also come with a new internal chip that offers better pairing. Overall quality is still great but the lack of ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) and IP rating make it a difficult choice for non-iPhone users.

9. Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro

Anker may not be the first brand that comes to mind when it comes to TWS earbuds, but the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro made it to our list thanks to its affordability and numerous features that are comparable to more premium brands. More importantly, it works well and sounds incredible.

Undeniably, the design of the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro looks similar to the Apple AirPods with its elongated stem. The silicone-tipped horn which was available in the first version of the Soundcore Liberty is still the same, and just like before they are easy to fit and comfortable to wear for long hours. It comes with a large collection of extra ear tips to help anyone using it find the right fit. It also comes with touch controls where you can control four different commands that you can also edit using the Soundcore app.

Another feature of the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is that there are default sensors, namely, auto-pause, remove earbuds and replace earbuds. One of the highlights of the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro is the great sound quality, strong bass, and clear sound. Active Noise Cancellation effectively cancels out most outdoor sounds that get in the way of your listening experience. There are also four different modes to choose from: outdoor, indoor, transport, and custom that allows you to make your selection of frequencies to filter.

In terms of call quality, the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro earbuds do not disappoint with the help of the six microphones and ANC―sounds that need to be picked up are collected and ambient noise is cancelled.

A significant improvement in the battery performance also makes the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro a good buy. The total battery life of the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air 2 Pro now lasts up to 6.4 hours. The charging case adds 3 full extra charges making it more than enough to last a day of usage.

8. Jabra Elite 85t

The Jabra Elite 85t is another excellent TWS earbud coming from a reputable company known to produce good quality audio and great active noise cancelling.

This TWS earbud is a good selection given what it can bring to the table, but the premium price makes it tough to sell when compared to other top brands. The Jabra Elite 85t design is similar to the Elite 75t which features a simple and sleek design, although the Jabra Elite 85t comes with a few minor changes like a more oval shape and a bulkier appearance. The additional changes are meant to accommodate the active noise control option. It also has an IPX4 water-resistance rating which is a very welcome feature, especially for outdoor sports.

The audio quality was already great with the Jabra Elite 75t, but Jabra still opted to make additional improvements to the Elite 85t by adding a bigger 12mm speaker resulting in a more balanced soundstage and bass. The call quality is also excellent and this is greatly enhanced with Jabra's ANC feature. The active noise cancelling feature uses two mics per bud to selectively cancel out ambient noise before you hear it. The intensity of the feature can be tweaked using the Sound+ companion app.

The battery life of the Jabra Elite 85t is estimated to last up to 5.5 hours per charge and this can be extended to 7 hours when the ANC is turned off. The charging case subsequently adds 25 hours of battery life to the earbuds.

7. Bose QuietComfort Earbuds

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds currently have one of the best noise cancellation features one can find in a TWS earbud today.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds may look bulky when compared to other competitors as their dimensions are bigger and weigh 8.5g each. But despite this wearing, the earbuds could not be more comfortable thanks to an excellent fitting ear tip design and fins that secure the earbuds. The outer panel also has touch-sensitive controls to control calls and music.

Again, the highlight of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds is the noise cancellation technology. The unique ear tip design helps passively enhance this feature. The noise is completely blocked when the ANC is placed at the highest level; ambient noise will only be heard clearly when the feature is turned off. Connectivity which was an issue in the past has been addressed with the upgraded Bluetooth 5.1 standard. Another interesting feature is the voice assistant feature of the device giving you access to Siri and Google Assistant.

As expected, the sound quality is excellent―the vocals have a unique clarity that it makes it a joy to listen to any type of music. The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds also provide great call quality with its four-mic array that can focus on your voice even when there is ambient noise.

The battery life of the Bose QuietComfort Earbuds can last up to 6 hours and an additional 12 hours is made available using the rechargeable case.

Comfort is an important aspect to consider and the additional swappable wingtips and ear tips make it easier to find the perfect fit. The only drawback that can be found in its design is the IPX2 rating which is the same rating found on the older Galaxy Buds.

Connectivity with the earbuds is great with Bluetooth 5.0, which provides a stable wireless connection. The downloadable Samsung Galaxy Buds app allows you to customize the controls and settings to suit your preferences. Even iOS users can download the app from Apple's App Store.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live come with numerous features that you would normally only find in more premium TWS earbuds. The affordable price tag and great features make them a great alternative to the Apple AirPods 2.

The Samsung Galaxy Buds Live have a unique design, quite different from Apple's famous simple white design. The "one size fits all" is inspired by the design of hearing aids in hopes of providing the best comfortability in the segment. The quality of the audio is average at best, but the ANC feature and an IP rating give it an advantage over Apple's AirPods 2. The significant difference in price tag also makes the Galaxy Buds Live a good choice for both Android and iOS users.

The battery life for the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live is rated 6 hours and the earbud case that can be charged wirelessly adds up to 20 hours of use.

The Apple AirPods Pro are still Apple's ace when it comes to TWS earbuds. Unlike the non-Pro AirPods, the AirPods Pro feature ANC, better audio quality, and a cool spatial audio feature.

In terms of design, the Apple AirPods Pro are small and light, yet durable for extended use. Comfort in getting it to fit was addressed by scraping the one size fits all design and adding an interchangeable ear tip. Having the right fit will also allow the new noise cancellation feature to work properly. This noise cancellation mode also comes with a transparency mode that allows you to directly immerse with your surroundings to be able to hear critical information when you need to. The TWS earbud comes with an IPX4 certification allowing you to use the device during a workout or even running.

The excellent design of the earbuds also functions as quick shortcuts to simple commands. Getting the TWS earbud to fit is made easier with different ear tip sizes available. This TWS earbud has the highest IPX7 rating among earbuds making it suitable for use in any condition, rain or shine, and any activity you can think of.
