What Are ‘Wirefree’ Earbuds?
We’ve seen them go by many names: true wireless earbuds, truly wireless earbuds, completely wireless earbuds, fully wireless earbuds. Here at WIRED, if a pair of wireless earbuds have no cord that connects the left bud to the right, we call them wirefree. We think it’s less confusing. Typically, wirefree sets come with two popcorn-sized buds, each with a battery in them, and a charging cradle that carries extra battery power and keeps them safe when you’re not wearing ’em. They’re freeing, but do come with their own issues, such as poor battery life (don’t buy any with less than 4 hours), confusing on-bud controls, and reliance on a charging case.
