We have known true wireless earbuds to stop charging in their case over time, and this is usually down to a poor connection between the contact points on the earpieces and the corresponding ones.
While they can be pretty bare-boned and merely offer you the chance to view battery life, update firmware and name your buds Steve , others are gateways to meaningful features that could really enhance your experience.
Many true wireless earbuds (especially those at the pricier end of the market) support higher quality Bluetooth codecs than the ‘standard’ SBC and AAC ones.
Earbuds typically come with three sizes (small, medium and large) of silicone (and also sometimes memory foam) tips, and it’s critical to the listening experience that you don’t wear one that’s too big or too small.
Another feature increasingly making its way into wireless earbuds is multipoint functionality, which allows the simultaneous connection of two sources to a pair of earbuds.
Battery care is important in all electronics, and there are ways you can increase the lifespan of your wireless earbuds’ battery beyond deactivating ANC when you don’t need it and listening at more modest volume levels
It’s one thing to have to return your buds to the charging case due to a low earbud charge, but you don’t want to be caught short with a charging case that isn’t topped up either.
