As time advances, we are getting to see more and more smartphone manufacturers remove the 3.5mm headphone jack from their smartphones. And due to smartphones being the one device that users always carry, people are preferring to get a pair of wireless earphones with it.
To tell you a bit about the history of this, Apple initially removed the headphone jack from its iPhone 7, thus popularising the concept. Soon, it released its own AirPods, which have become extremely popular, becoming the most sold wireless earphones. The Apple AirPods Pro have taken Apple’s dominance to another level.
If you are one of those who want to cut the cord, take a look at the top five truly wireless earphones that you can get right now.
