I have a pair of Ugreen’s HiTune X6 wireless earbuds, and they are some of the best I’ve ever used as well as some of the most affordable. With their price tag just under $50, you’ll still get premium-grade features like active noise canceling, hands-free calling, and rich, clear audio. The earbuds also feature touch controls for your music, podcasts, and videos, and a clear, automated voice lets you know when the earbuds are paired, they’re powered on and off, ANC is turned on, and you need to recharge. The earbuds give you up to six hours of playback time on a full charge, which is about 90 minutes more than Apple’s AirPods Pro, and the charging case gives you another 20 hours of play time. Just 10 minutes of charging gives you around an hour or so of play time, which is perfect for when you forget to charge overnight for your morning commute.
The ANC feature is incredible, as well. I live very close to a major, busy highway, and I use the HiTune X6s to block out traffic noise when I want to enjoy my backyard. While they don’t completely drown out passing cars, they do make a huge difference, allowing me to listen to music while I have dinner on the deck or soak up some sun after work. My biggest complaint is that even with the smallest tips, the earbuds feel a bit big for my ears, and if you like to listen to white noise or ASMR videos while you sleep, the HiTune X6s aren’t the most comfortable to sleep in. But if you’re looking for an affordable pair of true wireless earbuds with excellent sound quality, these are your best bet.
