8 Earbuds that will last you all day (and night)

Wireless earbuds are great for enjoying sound with physical freedom. Unfortunately, some are very restrictive when it comes to battery life. If you want to listen all day (and maybe into the night) try these long-lasting earbuds.

8 Earbuds that will last you all day (and night)
BeoPlay E8 Earphones in Black
  • What is the longest battery life for wireless earbuds? The very longest-lasting earbuds now can go for 12 hours on a full charge. Others rely on charging cases to lengthen their playtime.
  • What is the difference between Bluetooth 4 and 5? Bluetooth 5 is the latest version. It uses less power, offers better quality, and allows you to pair multiple devices at once.
  • Are wireless earbuds worth the money? That mostly depends on how annoying you find cables. Wireless audio doesn’t sound better, it’s only more convenient.

In theory, we should all be using wireless earbuds. They are smart, stylish and much more convenient than the wired alternative. The one thing holding many of us back is battery life. If you listen to music all day, four hours just isn’t enough. Thankfully, some earbuds have a little more stamina. Here are our long-lasting favorites.
