True wireless earbuds have been available for a few years, but Apple essentially cornered the market when it released the first-gen AirPods in 2016. The AirPods Pro were an even better entry into the true wireless space in 2019, giving nearly every competitor a run for its money.
If youâ€™re an Android user, or simply donâ€™t like the AirPods Pro for whatever reason, there are plenty of viable alternatives in early 2020. Google just released its second-gen Pixel Buds (which we just reviewed) and spoiler alert: Theyâ€™re good. Really good. And probably the best AirPods Pro competitor you can buy if youâ€™re on Android.
Not all earbuds are created equally, though. If youâ€™re buying earbuds solely for use while working out, the audio experts atÂ SoundGuys say theÂ Beats Powerbeats Pro are the ones toâ€¦ beat.
If you could pick one pair of true wireless earbuds, which would you choose? Would you stick with the AirPods Pro, go Google with the new Pixel Buds, or get something a bit more affordable like the Galaxy Buds Plus? Personally, Iâ€™m happy with my Jaybird Vistas, but if I had to choose a new pair Iâ€™d probably try out the Pixel Buds. They look very comfortable.
