Bluetooth Earbuds + Charging Case – Never run out of juice
I like travelling and walking as much as the next guy (actually probably a bit more), and I love listening to music when I’m on the move. This is why I really care about the earphones I use (the old boombox on the shoulder got me some complaints, watch out) and, honestly, with all the new Bluetooth earbuds, I have been going slightly mad. A few months ago, I bought a pair of Mpow Flame, which were actually perfect for me: decent battery life, ear hooks, and good audio quality, all for about $20.
Unfortunately for me though, I must have pulled the chord while sleeping or something like that (sometimes I fall asleep while listening to music or watching something on my phone) and one of the earbuds stopped working altogether. So, I got another set from another brand (there was a sale), but I wasn’t as lucky as for the Mpow. While the audio quality was still good enough, the battery life was horrible, lasting less than 2 hours. What’s worse, whenever the battery was about to die, the earphones would start repeating “The battery is almost dead” like every 10 seconds, so I couldn’t even enjoy one last song.
This is when my friend stepped in. He had bought a pair of Wireless Bluetooth earbuds with a 3500 mAh charging case about a month ago, and when he told me he hadn’t charged the case since he bought it I was sold instantly.
So, I started looking at similar Bluetooth earphones, mostly because I was about to head to the Netherlands in a 18 hour long drive and I would be coming back by plane (that’s just something we do in the family), and I wanted to be sure my earbuds would never run out of juice.
I looked exclusively for Wireless Bluetooth earbuds with a charging case with at least 3000mAh capacity, so I could be sure I wouldn’t have to charge the case for the whole trip. Here are the best models I’ve found.
Wireless Bluetooth earbuds with charging case:
At 37.97 EUR these actually looked like a nice choice, I was only put off a bit by the lack of reviews. Other than that, the charging case has a 3000 mAh capacity, and the earphones connect via Bluetooth 5.0, boasting a 4 hours playback and talk time, with 90 hours recycling time (through charge I suppose), and they’re IPX7 waterproof.
These are the ones I opted for. At 45.99 EUR they still offer a 3000 mAh charging case that can also double as a power bank (I have a separate power bank though). The earphones work on Bluetooth 5.0 and they have a 3 hours play time (I’ve been trying them non stop and it feels a little longer actually), 630 hours of standby time and they can be charged 42 times on a full charging case. They’re IPX6 waterproof and the product has a lot of great reviews.
My girlfriend actually bought these and, although they’re slightly more expensive (49.99 EUR) I think the extra 5 Euro might just be worth it. The design is great, they’re IPX7 waterproof and offer 90 hours playing time, 135 hours talk time, and 560 hours standby time. These Bluetooth 5.0 earphones also have great reviews, although about half the number of the Vigorun.
Yes, these earphones actually have a 3500 mAh charging case that obviously doubles as a power bank (I’m pretty sure all the models I’ve listed do). The earphones are Bluetooth 5.0, IPX 7 waterproof, they have a 3 hour playtime and talk time, and up to 160 hours of standby time. There are tons of great reviews for this product and basically the only reason I did not go for these is that they were slightly more expensive at the moment I purchased mine. Now, they’re priced at 38.99 EUR (thanks Amazon).
I am sure there are other Wireless Bluetooth earbuds out there, possibly better. But I was aiming for a middle range selection and for a high charging case capacity. I’m sure some of you will be raving about brand earbuds, but honestly, so long as the quality of the item is good, I’ve never really cared for brands when it comes to earphones and, the three models we’ve tested in particular, all deliver in full.
