Apple’s AirPods might be the biggest name in true wireless earbuds, but they’re hardly the best. If you’re willing to pay a bit of a premium, you can easily enjoy sound quality that’s on par with the best corded Bluetooth earbuds out there. Our favorites are the Master & Dynamic MW07 Earphones, but they’re pricey at $300. The Bang & Olufsen Beoplay E8 Premium Truly Wireless Bluetooth Earphones come in at a close second, and they carry the same $300 price tag. If you snag a pair right now on Amazon though, you’ll only pay $211.
