There’s not much to criticise with the Sony WF-1000XM3 since you get solid sound quality, exceptional ANC for in-ears, long battery life and a host of premium features. In fact, these earphones have the best ANC performance in the wireless in-ear headphones category. The only features we sorely missed were wireless charging for the case, an IP rating and aptX support. The earphones are also comfortable for most ears and can be worn for long periods without overbearing fatigue. Additionally, Sony has priced these pretty competitively in the premium true wireless segment, undercutting the AirPods Pro and Sennheiser True Momentum Wireless 2 that offer similar features.

The Bose QuietComfort Earbuds extends the company’s solid noise cancelling legacy from their on-ear and over-headphones to in-ear headphones. The earbuds have impressive ANC and detailed sound quality, as one would expect from this company. The bass is a bit on the higher side, still the mids and the highs have plenty of detail and there’s very little masking in the other frequencies due to the bass. The build quality is solid as well and users get a total of 18 hours of battery life from both the buds and the charging case.

Apple’s AirPods Pro in-ear true wireless headphones have a lot going for them. They come equipped with ANC, Transparency Mode, silicone ear tips, an IP rating, a customisable EQ, and a whopping 24 hours of total battery life. It’s quite the feature set for a compact pair of in-ears. The touch controls, situated on the short stem of these earphones, can be used to easily activate ANC by simply long-pressing them. They do quite well suppressing external sounds and provide a decent battery life of 4.5 hours on the buds themselves with ANC turned on. They also offer sweat and water resistance.

The successor to the highly-acclaimed Sennheiser Momentum True Wireless comes packing ANC and a lot more features. The Momentum True Wireless 2 does a stellar job at drowning out consistent sounds and chatter in the background such as the hum of the AC and even some voices. It does slightly better at masking low frequencies in comparison to high frequency external sounds. Additionally, these earphones also come with improved battery life, rated at a total of 28 hours, with 7 hours on the buds themselves. The sound quality and build is also sublime, so you don’t mind paying a premium for the premium experience you surely will get, these earphones may be the ones for you.

The Sony WI-1000XM2 are one of the better-performing neckband-style wireless earphones on the market. They are a great-sounding pair of earphones that will give you little to complain about. The Sony WI-1000XM2 is a neckband-style pair of earphones that is minimalist on the surface but comes equipped with all the flair, one would expect on premium earphones, on the inside. Apart from the strictly mediocre battery life of 10 hours and the absence of aptX support, you get enough bang for your buck with premium offerings such as Adaptive Sound Control, ANC, soft foam-like tips, a customisable EQ, and most importantly, accurate and detailed sound. Sony’s ANC prowess shows with these earbuds and they diminish most ambient sounds pretty well.

Samsung’s foray into the popular truly wireless earbuds market has been a bit of a hit and miss. The hit being the excellent Samsung Galaxy Buds Plus, and the miss being the Samsung Galaxy Buds Live, primarily due to its polarising bean-shaped buds. The company launched the Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro with its S21 lineup of 2021, and the company seems to have moved on from its bean-shaped folly and have adopted a more traditional in-ear design. The buds also come equipped with a wide array of premium features such as Active Noise Cancellation, Voice Detect, Ambient Sound, 360 Audio, Dolby Head Tracking, Auto Switch and much more. The ANC performance is very impressive. Most ambient sounds will be suppressed to a good degree allowing you to immerse yourself in the music.

Carl Pei's venture dubbed "Nothing" generated quite a bit of buzz in the tech community. The first product from the newly-founded company – the Nothing Ear 1 – proved to be quite the hit amongst users primarily due to its unique transparent design. The Nothing Ear 1 is also a feature-packed pair of truly wireless earbuds, although there are some misses such as lack of voice assistant support and mediocre wear detection performance. Still, it gives high-end TWS earphones a solid run for their money. The earphones also come with pretty good V-shaped sound and effective Active Noise Cancellation for the price.
