Since the announcement of the new iPhone 7 being released without a headphone jack, you’ll likely end up purchasing Bluetooth wireless headphones.
If you’re into gym or jogging, it means no more wires hanging clumsily in your face. And given reports that Bluetooth technology has been improved and its cost reduced, who wouldn’t want to be liberated from the wire?
Here are 5 wireless headphones, in no particular order, that are worth your attention:
You get more features than you’ll ever need, and an app that puts you in the driver’s seat with precision tuning. The Zik microphone even eliminates wind noise. The only drawback? The price, at around $400.
If you need a sturdy pair of wireless headphones, these are built to withstand just about anything you can throw at them: dropping, twisting, even bending. Built with an aluminum frame and steel hinges, they also feature a shatterproof headband. But enough macho talk. What you’re going to love is the sound, a rich, full sound— thanks to a partnership with Dolby—that is music to your ears. Around $119.
Epic 2 Wireless Sport Earbuds, made by JLab, are known for offering quality sound and a long-lasting battery. Price, at around $100, is a little steep but not outrageous for premium sports headphones.
