AirPods have long dominated the wireless earbud market, in terms of price, quality, and reputation. But the Bang & Olufsen Beoplay EX Earphones are attempting to claim the throne for themselves, delivering sterling sound quality and a truly comfortable design.
The smaller in-ear housing ensures the earbuds will stay securely in place even when running and playing sports, and the 9.2 mm drivers (the largest in the company’s selection) deliver both clearer and more accurate sound. Other epic features include IP57 waterproofing, Bluetooth 5.2 support, active noise cancellation, two-device pairing, and playback time ranging from 6 to 20 hours (if you use the battery case’s wireless charging feature). Though a bit pricier than Apple’s offering, these are the headphones you may just end up buying to replace that lost pair of AirPods.
