Here are the 5 best Bluetooth headphones you can buy in 2019.
There is no doubt about it: the best Bluetooth headphones are not the cheap $40 units that are widely available on every e-commerce site. Quality does not often come cheap. If you want the best of anything, you must be prepared to spend a considerable amount of money.
In this article, we bring you a list of the very best Bluetooth headphones in the market. Be prepared to spend $100 and above to purchase any of them. That’s at least N35,000. Which is not really much in the grand scheme. You will get your money’s worth though. In the words of Small Doctor, “If you no get money, hide your face!”
What are the characteristics of the best Bluetooth headphones?
Great audio quality, great build quality, great battery life (anything from 5 hours and above is great), and comfort. These are the outstanding qualities of the best wireless headphones.
Some will add aesthetics, but beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some of the best headphones in the market are not as pleasant looking as some would have us believe. Like some of the most luxurious cars in the world, some are downright ugly. But they deliver on all the above-listed points and that is all that really matters.
The best Bluetooth headphones in 2019
There are three major types of headphones: in-ear, on-ear, and over-ear. This list deals primarilly with in-ear models. In-ear wireless headphones fit in your ear, offering convenience and that super cool look that you won’t get from on-ear and over-ear headphones.
In-ear headphones (or earbuds) are the rave of 2019, so get with the programme.
There are scores of solid wireless headphones out there. So, why did we go with only five? We did because too many choices end up confusing the buyer. Have you read those articles that offer you the 20 best bla-bla this-and-that? How did you feel after being hit by 20 options? Like you got hit by a truck? Exactly. Who wants to have to choose the best from the 20 best?
