The best wireless earbuds of 2021
Wireless earbuds are hugely popular and are driving the wired earbuds more and more into the background. More and more brands are bringing TWS (true wireless) bluetooth earbuds off. These earbuds work with your Android smartphone, but also with your computer and any Apple device. Android Planet lists the five best wireless earbuds of 2021 and takes into account different budgets and usage requirements.
Cheap: Sony WF-C500
Do you want fancy wireless earbuds from a reputable brand, but have a limited budget? Then we recommend the Sony WF-C500. These compact earplugs wear particularly nicely, can withstand a rainstorm and sound better than the price suggests.
The battery life is about nine hours while listening to music. The storage box charges the earbuds. You charge the box yourself via the usb-c port. The WF-C500 is also suitable for Google Assistant to perform voice commands.
You are temporarily buying the Sony WF-C500 for 66 euros from MediaMarkt and Bol.com.
Also for Apple: AirPods 3
As an Android user, you may not immediately think of Apple’s AirPods, but the new AirPods 3 are definitely worth considering. Especially if you use one or more Apple devices in addition to your Android device, because the AirPods 3 work together seamlessly. Thanks to the bluetooth connection, they also do well with other devices.
The AirPods 3 are more similar in design to the AirPods Pro than to previous generations of AirPods. The sound quality has also been improved, the battery lasts longer and the storage box is now also suitable for wireless charging and MagSafe.

You can buy the Apple AirPods 3 for 189 euros at Belsimpel and Bol.com, among others.
Sporty: JBL Reflect Flow
Are you an enthusiastic athlete and looking for wireless earbuds that do not fall out of your ears while running, fitness or cycling? Then the JBL Reflect Flow is a smart choice. These earbuds have a convenient hook, so they sit extra firmly in your ears.
The Reflect Flow can withstand sweat and rain, go on a battery charge for ten hours and charge quickly in it – great! – storage box. This box provides an extra battery.
The sound quality of the Reflect Flow is not comparable to much more expensive earplugs, but will appeal to athletes. The earplugs produce a lot of bass. The main focus of the JBL Reflect Flow is the format, because the round earplugs are sharp and therefore do not fit well in every type of ear.
Buy the JBL Reflect Flow from Amazon or Bol.com.
Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2
The Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless 2 are comfortable earplugs that last a long time on a battery charge and sound very pleasant. It is also useful that the earplugs remain firmly in the ears during a workout.
Sennheiser has a free Android app that lets you adjust the sound and general settings of the earbuds.

You can buy the earplugs for 186 euros at Bol.com, Coolblue and MediaMarkt, among others.
Premium: Sony WF-1000XM4
If you want the best set of wireless earbuds at the moment, you’ve got the Sony WF-1000XM4.
These earbuds not only provide fantastic sound, but also very effective sound suppression (ANC). You hear ambient noises such as fellow travelers on public transportation much softer and farther away, for example. This way you can concentrate better, which can also be useful at home and in the office garden.
The Sony WF-1000XM4 – with ANC activated – lasts about eight hours on a battery charge and quickly charges in the storage box. That box charges itself via usb-c or a wireless charger. Of course, these earbuds are also suitable for the Google Assistant.
Buy the Sony WF-1000XM4 from Coolblue or Expert for 249 euros.
