With an ever expanding list of wireless earbuds you can easily get lost in the labyrinth that is the makes, models, sizes, features etc. Without going crazy, we thought we’d make the easiest list to walk through and make a solid decision based on a few key features that matter to me, so I hope they matter to you as well!

What you should also consider
When buying earphones, something that you should really consider is how well they fit in your ears. This means, no matter how much you shop online, you should really consider going in store and trying them out, everyone has a different ear and some may fit uncomfortably or just plain fall out when running.
