Why we picked it:

Rather than traditional noise cancellation technology, Bose has applied their own adaptive methods of active noise cancellation on their QuietComfort wireless earbuds. Aside from passive noise cancellation provided by the perfectly-fitting ear tips, which also offer a great level of comfort, you can adjust the amount of ambient noise that gets through your earbuds. These features, as well as everything else relating to volume and music playback, can be controlled by touch-based motions on the earbuds. 

Notable Features:

  • Adaptive active noise cancellation
  • Great comfort
  • Stunning sound quality
  • Up to 18 hours of playtime

Our Thoughts

Top 8 Loudest Wireless Earbuds 8

Why we picked it:

From well-respected audio manufacturers, AKG, the N400 wireless earbuds are compact, portable, and perform beautifully in practically any situation. The sound quality here is as excellent as I expected and will suit any line of listening, from bass-heavy, high-energy music to delicate, critical productions. The AKG N400 wireless earbuds can go a little louder than most earbuds on this list, and they can function with noise cancellation features in place or with an ambient awareness mode, making these safe for sports and outdoor enthusiasts. 

Notable Features:

As with many AKG products, you’re not going to have to worry about sound quality with the N400; it is loud, and the sound is crisp. However, the battery life is far from the best we’ve seen. If you rarely use your earbuds but having good quality sound is important, these may be for you.

So which is best for me?

I want to listen to music around the house, on the bus, and at the office

For these uses, the battery life and comfortability of the wireless earbuds are critical since they’ll be used for many hours a day. You’ll want a pair that can last at least 8 hours on a single charge, with a carry case that can boost the battery’s lifespan. This way, you’ll be able to charge your wireless earbuds in the carry case overnight, so they’re ready for a full day of use when you wake up.

If you’re wearing wireless earbuds for more than an hour at a time, you’ll want a pair designed with the user’s comfortability in mind, such as the Sony WF-C500. For additional comfort, security, and improved sound quality, you could also invest in a pair of custom-molded ear tips, which generally aren’t too expensive.

I need a pair that I can use during sporting activities

For an outdoor-focused pair, it all depends on what exactly you’re doing, as it affects a number of features that you may or may not need:

I need them for gym, cycling, running, or hiking

For the above activities, we’ll need to consider three main elements that are crucial to your specific needs:

  1. Comfort and fit – you’ll need a pair that is not only comfortable to wear for longer periods since this can affect your sense of balance but also won’t fall out of your ears easily.
  2. Noise cancellation- while it’s nice to be able to cancel out the noise of others around you so you can zone in on your music while focusing on what you’re doing, it’s also important to remain aware of your surroundings, especially if you’re running or cycling in the streets. A pair with adjustable noise cancellation is ideal here.
  3. Water resistance- For the above activities, a rating of IPX4 or above will be enough to provide resistance against sweat or light rain. If you ever find yourself exercising in heavier conditions, look at something IPX7 or above.
I need them for heavier exercise

If you’re after something you can use while playing tennis, for example, the above still applies however, depending on what activities you enjoy, the noise cancellation factor may not be too important, and you could need to consider a more water-resistant pair if you’re in heavy rain often.

For sporting activities, the JBL Under Armour Flash X is a great all-purpose pair of loud wireless earbuds that can also be used for more casual listening, or if that’s a little out of budget, the Tozo T12 wireless earbuds offer great value for money and are under $50.00
