Check Latest Price

What's not to love about TOZO's T10 Bluetooth earbuds? Not only are they equipped with Bluetooth 5.0 technology––the strongest wireless connection available––but they offer a bouquet of other bonuses as well.

What sets these earbuds apart from the rest is the IPX8 waterproof technology. The earbuds and their handy charging case can be submerged in a meter of water for 30 minutes and still live to tell the tale! The T10 earbuds are one of two on our list that offers such impressive water resistance.

You can listen to your favorite music or podcast for up to 4 hours on a single charge, and the earbuds can last an extra 14 hours in their compact charging case on standby. Like the earbuds, the charging case is totally wireless, so traveling with the earbuds and charging them in one go has never been easier.

The headphones are compatible with all iOS, Android, and Windows devices. As for audio, you can count on high-quality stereo sound with powerful bass performance thanks to 8mm large speaker drivers, which are slightly larger than average drivers. Another perk is the noise reduction cap, so you can tune into high-quality audio without interference from the outside world.

Key Features

  • HiFi stereo sound
  • IPX8 water-resistance
  • 4 hours of battery life while playing content; 14 hours in charging case on standby
  • Highly flexible silicone ear caps

Purity's wireless earbuds get the job done well. Want stress-free device pairing? Yep, you've got it. Want a portable charging case? Done. Want easy indication of battery life? Check. Want water-resistance? Check. Though these headphones aren't as water-resistant as other models—TOZO takes the cake on that one—they're still water-resistant enough to survive some sweat or raindrops every now and then.

The battery life lasts for 4 hours in active use or 10 hours on standby. Unlike other models, Purity's earbuds can operate on two modes: stereo or single ear mode. Stereo mode means that audio is unique in each earbud, and each earbud is an independent audio channel, whereas single ear mode consists of one channel only.

The earbuds have three different ear cap sizes, so you're guaranteed to find the most comfortable size for your ears.

Key Features

  • Three different ear cap sizes
  • IPX 5 water-resistance
  • Play time up to 4 hours; 10 hours standby with charging case
  • Stereo and single ear modes

Best Audio Quality
Check Latest Price

BEBEN X8 earbuds bring a lot to the table, but what we love most is the audio quality. The earbuds boast 3D sound effects and binaural stereo sound. In simplest terms, this means the audio is highly immersive, true-to-life, engaging, and creates a seemingly 360-degree audio experience. And, unlike other models listed, this one has the highest battery life––you can play your favorite content for 6 hours nonstop, and the charging case can keep the buds charged on standby for 30 hours total.

Since each earbud is lightweight, they offer powerful sound without bogging you down. And, if you have trouble finding earbuds that fit your ears, that likely won't be a problem here, since there are three caps to test out until you find the right fit.

All controls are channeled through one easy-to-use button.

Key Features

  • Biaural stereo effect
  • IP68 dust proof and waterproof
  • Multiple ear cap sizes
  • Lightweight

Rademax Bluetooth Earbuds

Check Latest Price

Rademax's Bluetooth earbuds have an IPX7 rating on the water-resistance scale, meaning that the sealed shell and interior nano-coating of the earbuds can fend off natural forces like sweat and rain without destroying the technology inside. The notable resistance to water is one major perk here, but our favorite feature is actually the battery life.

When in active use, the earbuds can last between 4 and 5 hours, however, the charging takes only an hour and a half. The earbuds can survive on standby for an extra 60 hours in their tiny transportable case. Yep, you heard right—60 hours.

The audio quality of the earbuds is worth mentioning as well, especially since crystal clear quality and exquisite bass go hand in hand to create an audiophile-approved music experience. High-quality audio capacity can be attributed to the 10mm speaker drivers.

Key Features

  • Deep bass
  • IPX7 rating
  • 4 hours play time and 60 extra hours in portable charging case
  • Charge time is less than 2 hours

Below we break down a few terms that might make your decision process a bit easier.

Drivers

Drivers are responsible for the sound you hear. Larger drivers are associated with better bass and louder sound. Though larger drivers aren't always a good thing, in this case, larger drivers likely indicate better sound quality.

IP Ratings

An IP rating can measure two things: protection from intrusions like dust or protection from water. For Bluetooth earbuds, protection from external intrusions isn't as necessary as water resistance. For that reason, we focused most of our reviews primarily on IP ratings for water resistance.

The IPX scales range from 0 to 8—0 being the lowest, and offering no protection against water. Lower ratings can handle a few raindrops or an occasional splash but aren't water-resistant enough to weather much at all. On the other hand, high ratings, especially IPX8 rating, can withstand being actually submerged in water. If you're planning to use your earbuds outside or to work out, we suggest spending a bit more to get a high IPX rating that can protect your buds from the elements.

Stereo Sound

Stereo sound is an excellent way to indulge in audio because it offers sound from more than one audio channel. This means the audio is more immersive and surrounds you, making the audio feel more dynamic and life-like.
