Wireless earphones have gained in popularity, courtesy of the tangle-free cords and due to the disappearing 3.5mm jacks on several newer phones. In its early days, Bluetooth earphones were not that efficient; not only was pairing with devices tedious, these earphones had limited range, average sound quality and were pretty overpriced. But times have changed, and with the advanced Bluetooth technology you can now safely run wire-free audio for long hours, since it consumes less power. The wireless earphones are now able to cover twice the range, offer good sound quality and some even provide exceptional standby time.
These earphones also come in handy in case your handset doesn’t have a 3.5mm audio jack and instead of relying on a headphone adapter you can simply pair it with Bluetooth. Besides, you can control music playback, receive calls right from the collar. Another good thing is that the wireless in-ear headphones now come at an affordable cost.
