The 5 biggest AirPods competitors right now

Good earbuds have several important qualities. For example, they are not too heavy and are comfortable to wear. But they should also produce a clear sound, and filter out unwanted noise effortlessly. If it’s up to us, the models below are your best options. At least, if you’re not waiting for AirPods.

#1 Sony WF-1000XM5

With the WF-1000XM5, Sony makes its already great mix of sound, convenient features and good noise cancellation even better. These earphones are the best and most comfortable ones Sony has made to date. And thus a great competitor to Apple’s AirPods.

They also have delightful features like adaptive sound and Speak-to-Chat. The latter is extra handy because it means the earbuds automatically switch to ambient mode when you’re in conversation.
