Remember a time when wireless earphones were but fancy gadgets, and mostly, a gimmick? That was a time when wireless earphones were far behind than wired ones in terms of sound quality. There were also connectivity issues and what not, due to inferior Bluetooth technology.
However, the present tells a different story. With manufacturers omitting headphone jacks, wireless earbuds have actually become a necessity! Modern wireless earbuds have great audio, face very little connectivity issues, and also give good battery life. And with the likes of Apple AirPods and Galaxy Buds in the market, wireless earbuds have become even more popular. But there are also other good wireless earbuds. So, today we will be listing the best wireless earbuds which you can buy in Nepal at every price range.
When Xiaomi launched the Redmi AirDots, the company claimed it to be the least expensive TWS (truly Wireless Stereo) earbuds. The device launched at just $15 in China, but the international price can be twice that. However, it’s still cheaper than most other wireless earpods out there. Also, it offers rich and clear audio, which is more than decent for the price. It does compromise on the bass, and slightly in terms of treble, but it is decent enough for the price you pay for it.
The AirDots come in a carrying case, resembling the Galaxy Buds. Its packaging is light and small, and with each earbud weighing just 4.1 grams, portability is no issue. In addition, that also means, it won’t weigh on your ears during prolonged usage. There’s a button on each earbud to play/pause music and trigger your voice assistant as well. Also, with a built-in mic, you can also make and receive calls on it. So, you can say, the price to features ratio is good enough.

Samsung Galaxy Buds
The Galaxy Buds is Samsung’s answer to Apple’s AirPods. It features a sophisticated look and design, due to which the earbuds snuggly fit into the ears without any sort of discomfort. Also, the shape and the rubber tips make for good enough passive noise cancellation as well. These in-ear headphones also come with an active noise cancellation feature, which has to be activated through the Galaxy Wearables app.
In terms of audio, the Galaxy Buds produce good sound. By default, the buds lack a bit of bass but Android users can boost it by using Samsung Wearable app. The same app can also be used to remap the touch-sensitive buttons, which exists on the back of each earbud.

Sony WF-SP700N Wireless headphones

Apple AirPods 2
Apple products are usually expensive and so is the AirPods 2. But when it comes to audio quality, AirPods 2 stands up top. The original AirPods was already a solid performer. But with the new and improved H1 chip for faster pairing, AirPods 2 has gotten even better.
There are still a lot of cons if you nitpick. AirPods 2 technically are not water or sweat-resistant and there’s no equalizer or ambient-listening mode. But with the audio quality it projects, it overwhelms everyone. You get a clear sound with a surprising level of details. It doesn’t overdo the bass or brings fatiguing highs. So the audio sounds full and balanced. However, the lack of seal or active noise cancellation feature is a bit frustrating since it doesn’t block background noises. When it comes to phone calls though, Apple has said to have improved the quality. Even in the windy places, the earbuds won’t pick up the noise.
