They’re not perfect but the price-tag and advantageous pros-to-cons ratio help the HAVIT G1W true wireless earbuds hold their ground as a contender in an increasingly crowded space.

If you’re not an audiophile, $500 is a lot of money to spend on a single pair of headphones - and while the Nuraphones definitely sound good, I don’t think they sound quite that good.
The Sony WF-SP700N sports earbuds take the strengths of last year’s WF-1000X and mold them to a very different cause.
Where other true wireless earbuds are about audio isolation, the Xperia Ear Duo are about audio synthesis. They’re a different, smarter kind of earbud, for a different, smarter kind of customer.
While the AXUM Gear Bluetooth earbuds aren’t without their strengths, there’s just a too little many weaknesses here to ignore - even with the cheaper-than-average price.
The Cygnett FreePlay earbuds are definitely more affordable than most true wireless at $129 but they arrive with just enough compromises that I’d struggle to honestly recommend them over the many cheaper, wired or Bluetooth alternatives.
The Sennheiser GSP 600 lives up the brand’s pedigree for sound quality but fails to seal the deal on other fronts.
Pitched as a more professional (or least professional-looking) option, the Jabra Elite 65ts harness not only the strengths of their predecessors but also offer the leap forward that we had hoped to get from them.
Unless you’re really, really, invested in one of the titles in the present lineup of supported Dolby Atmos games- this is a tricky sell.
There are a lot of great ideas here. Unfortunately, they’re let down by the disappointing reality of the hardware involved.
If the prospect of paying $129 for decent true wireless earbuds sounds good enough that you’re happy to make the compromises that 3SIXT are asking for, then you’ll likely come away satisfied with the sound of these.
As a first effort in the true wireless category, the Bose SoundSport Free are an impressive effort. Unfortunately, it felt like any positive elements here come balanced by the slightly iffy form-factor and high price.
If you want good battery life, comfortable design and are satisfied with decent sound quality, these might fit the bill. Unfortunately, and otherwise, they feel like the byproduct of a brand that wants to play in the wireless gaming headset space but...
Brand loyalty only goes so far - and where that loyalty ends, TRNDlabs’s NOVA earbuds are aiming to pick up the slack. According to the company, the NOVA are the first “genuinely affordable” true wireless earbuds.
When Anker started talking up their Zolo Liberty+ earbuds at a price-point of $99, it caught my attention. Everything else - the 48-hour battery life, Bluetooth 5 connectivity and 6mm graphene drivers - was just icing on the cake.
