Your smartphone can do a lot more than just make phone calls. So, when it comes time to pick out a new set of wireless in-ear headphones, you’ll want a pair that can pick up your voice while you’re talking to clients or friends, as well as play your favorite tunes with pristine clarity.
But picking the right pair is about more than just picking the headphones that sound the best. You also want to consider factors like size, design and, perhaps most important of all, call quality. The last thing you want is to have to change out your earbuds every time you need to make a call. Fortunately, giant leaps in audio technology over the past few years mean you can easily find a pair that excel in each area.
If you spend a large chunk of each day on your iPhone, Galaxy or Pixel, it’s worth investing in a premium pair of wireless in-ear headphones for both work and play. Here are some of the best currently available on Amazon.
