Shootout: The best totally wireless earbuds compared

By Marcus Wong - 10 Sep 2017

Conclusion

And the best totally wireless earbuds is... 

Bragi’s The Headphone

Other than the name, there's a lot to like about Bragi The Headphone. It fits well, gives you good passive noise isolation, and offers solid performance throughout the audio spectrum, making it great for all genres of music. While it certainly lacks the bells and whistles of some of the other contenders in this category, it makes up for this by being easy to charge (the carry case charges via USB so you can use the same external battery pack you use for your phone), and by costing less. At S$248.00, The Headphone is also the second cheapest headphone in the group, so there's certainly plenty of leeway to play with if you want to pick up a battery pack for longer listening.  Less electronics also meant a better connection and better battery life, so in this case, less certainly is more, and Bragi The Headphone is certainly a very worthy winner.
