The Perfect Wireless Earbuds for Mothers Day

Samuel Gilmour

Wireless earbuds are one of the best gifts this Mother’s Day, as they can be used in most settings and for multiple media sources. Invented in 1891 by French engineer Ernest Mercadier and based on telephone receiver earpieces, earbuds are a modern commodity that is practically a must-have for every single consumer in any country. Earbuds can be used for watching TV shows and videos on multiple devices such as cell phones, tablets, laptops, and PCs. With earbuds, you can also listen to music without bothering those around you. Some earbuds even offer better features for listening to music such as increased bass, treble, and sound capabilities.

FAQ

What are the advantages of wireless earbuds?

Wireless earbuds will free you up from having to connect earphones to a particular device with a 3.5mm headphone jack. If they support Bluetooth multipoint, they can be coupled to more than one device at a time, allowing you to take calls from your phone, as well as listen to music from your laptop.

Types of Wireless Earbuds

 

There are essentially 4 different designs of wireless earbuds:

  • Earbud-Fitting Earphones:

    • Earbud-fitting earphones are often referred to as earbuds and describe a type of earphone that consists of a round, nearly flat earphone piece that goes outside the ear canal and cannot go into the ear canal. An example is the Tagry Bluetooth True Wireless Earbuds

  • Whilst earbuds may be comfortable if you find the right type, they are the least noise-canceling of the two types of earphones, as they do not cover the ear canal completely. 

  • Earbuds with neckband:

    • You can also find earbuds with a neckband that connects the right and left earbuds together. People who wear earbuds during exercise prefer this design, because it reduces the chance of one of the earbuds falling out of your ear and getting lost. An example is the Reveal Store’s Magnetic Necklace Style Wireless Earphones. The two earbuds are also magnetic, so they “close” the necklace when they’re not in your ears!

  • In-ear Canalphones

    • Unlike earbud-fitting earphones, in-ear canal phones don’t just cover the ear canal. They actually go in a very small amount, creating a more soundproof and intense sound experience. An example is the Erlighpowht Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Earbuds.

  • In-ear canalphones have silicone tips that are inserted into the ear and can come in different sizes, depending on what is most comfortable for the wearer.

  • With an around-the-ear loop:

Different types of earphones for different uses:

  • Earbuds for watching TV shows or movies:

    • You want these earbuds to have a soundproof feature so that they can maintain focus on what's happening. But you want them also to be comfortable, as well as easy to lay down with or use in any position.

  • Earbuds for exercise:

    • These earbuds not only need to be comfortable but also need to be able to stay on. It is best to get earbuds with an ear attachment. Also, you would want earbuds that are not soundproof, since you need to be aware of your surroundings when exercising in a public place.

  • Earbuds for listening to music:

    • Earbuds for listening to music would need to have certain features such as volume control, play/pause buttons, as well as a good bass and treble balance so that you don’t miss out on anything in the song.

What reviewers say

We went over some customers’ impressions of the wireless earbuds that they bought:

  • Easy-access buttons: Customers were pleased with earbuds that have controls that are easy to access. If the earbuds are too small, the button will also be quite tiny. Typically, clicking once, twice or three times will perform different functions, and holding down the button for several seconds will turn them off entirely.

  • Easy pairing and wireless connecting: Wireless earbuds will have to pair up with your phone and other Bluetooth devices. Check user reviews to make sure that they didn’t have any complaints regarding compatibility issues and the like.

  • Surprising quality from modestly-priced earbuds: A customer who bought the Tagry Bluetooth Headphones was pleased that the sound quality wasn’t much less than the expensive brand names like Bose, Samsung, and Apple. Also, since the Tagry only cost around $30, it’s not such a big loss if something happens to them!

Important Features

Here are some features that are worth looking for when selecting a pair of wireless earbuds:

  • Volume Control:

    • Volume control refers to the buttons on the earbuds that allow the wearer to adjust the volume without changing the volume on the main device.

  • Sound Proof:

    • This refers to earbuds that block out any ambient noise and allow for the full experience of whatever you are doing, such as watching a show on your computer or jamming to music whilst cleaning.

  • Ear Attachments:

    • These are attachments on the earbud that wrap around the ear and prevent the earbuds from falling out.

  • Pause/Play Buttons:

    • This is a nice feature that allows the user to pause and play the music or whatever media they are listening to by pausing the main device.

  • Call Features:

    • Some earbuds also have small microphones in them, allowing you to take a phone call and for the person talking to you to able to hear you clearly.

  • Neck Band:

    • As mentioned before, some earbuds come with a neckband. This is a band to which the two earbuds are connected which goes around the back of your neck. This prevents the earbuds from falling off or getting lost.

Here Are a Few Tips To Get The Most Out Of Your Earbuds

  • How to Clean the Earbuds:

    • Things you need:

      • Dish soap

      • Q tips

      • A toothbrush used for cleaning

      • Rubbing alcohol

      • Alcohol wipes

    • If you have silicone tips:

      • Take off the silicone covers and soak in a dish with warm water and dish soap.

    • Cleaning your earbud:

      • Take the toothbrush and whilst holding the earbud mesh facing downward, gently brush the wax away. Make sure to keep it face-down so that wax can come out and not go deeper into the earbud.

      • If there is still some ear wax that you cannot get out, dip a Q tip into the rubbing alcohol, shake the excess off and wipe away the rest of the earwax with the Q tip.

      • Lastly, just to keep the whole earbud clean, wipe it down with alcohol wipes. Alcohol dries very quickly so you don’t have to worry about it going into the earbud.

  • What to do to keep your earbuds from breaking:

    • Keep your earbuds in a case, loosely wrapped in circles.

    • Always unplug the earbuds from your device after you are finished using it so that no one will trip over it, or yank it out of its input, which can damage the jack.

    • When unplugging your earbuds, pull on the jack or plug and not on the cable, so as to not damage the wires inside.

    • Don’t carry your earbuds in your pocket. They can easily get becoming hearing and may cause the speakers inside the earbuds to blow.

    • Like any other electronic device, it is important to keep your earbuds away from liquids, as they are not waterproof and can sustain damage.

    • Don’t sleep while wearing your headphones. Moving in bed or rolling over can break the wires or snap the earbud piece itself.
