The ATH-CKR7TW are Audio Technica’s first truly wireless in-ear headphones. True to the brand, they didn’t skimp on audio quality. The 11mm drivers are constructed with materials that reduce distortion, and it has a built-in DAC and amp to ensure depth and clarity.

It may look like a pair of earphones, but the Vinci 2.0 is so much more. It’s powered by Amazon’s Alexa, has its own storage, and supports 3G connectivity. So it can make calls and messages, search for answers and connect to music streaming services on its own.
Bose’s upcoming Sleepbuds can play only the 10 relaxing sounds that are loaded in the buds themselves, and can mask out other sounds. A mobile app will let you pick the sound, adjust the volume and set an alarm. They will come with soft eartips and a charging case.
Sony’s quirky personal speakers give you surround sound without taking up space or completely cutting off ambient noise. The SRS WS-1 has 2W drivers and vibration motors with three levels of strength. It comes with a wireless transmitter that can pair with two units at once.
Jaybird is known for having great-sounding and well-priced workout earphones. Its first fully wireless product is no different. The Run offers easy but powerful sound customization. It’s water-resistant, lasts 4h per charge and comes with a charging case that adds 8h of runtime.
Focal takes their already very good over-the-ear headphones and cuts the cord. They offer crisp, clean, and natural sounds, and a snug fit that keeps out background sounds. Battery life is great too – up to 20 hr per charge. Read our full review on Technabob.
