9. Jaybird X3
” data-sizes=”<>” alt=”jaybirdx3.jpg” class=”mt-image-center lazyload” style=”text-align: center; display: block; margin: 0 auto 20px;” />This may have been the year that ushered the wireless revolution in earnest, but don’t tell Jaybird that. The company has been making excellent Bluetooth earbuds for years, and that didn’t change in 2016. It’s flagship pair were the Freedom, which offered an absurdly small build at a monstrous price. Jaybird followed them up with the X3, which don’t have futuristically small hardware, but do have a far more accessible price. The X3 deliver great comfort, fit and sound in their own right plus an eight-hour battery life and sweatproof design, making them a fantastic choice for anyone that needs a durable pair of wireless buds.
8. Mission LX-2
” data-sizes=”<>” alt=”missionlx2.jpg” class=”mt-image-center lazyload” style=”text-align: center; display: block; margin: 0 auto 20px;” />With so much high quality audio equipment costing an arm and two legs, often the best in any given field are those that deliver exceptional quality for a fraction of the price.
The Mission LX-2 speakers are just that. Though you could certainly find better performing speakers if you were to double or triple your budget, the sound quality the LX-2 offer is superb for being a pair of speakers that will run you roughly $200. They are punchy, with good representation in mids and highs, great timing and strong dynamics. On top of it all, they are well-built and come with a classic design that will fit right in with any setup.
7. Bose QuietComfort 35
” data-sizes=”<>” alt=”qc35.jpg” class=”mt-image-center lazyload” style=”text-align: center; display: block; margin: 0 auto 20px;” />Long the kings in the noise-cancelling game, Bose delivered another winner in 2016 with the QuietComfort 35. They’re the most comfortable headphones of the year, great for taking on long flights or a commute of any duration, really. Boosted by Bose’s fantastic noise-cancelling technology, they will envelope you in a wall of silence, making sure nothing stands between you and your music. The QC35 also offer exceptional battery life at 20 hours, solid construction and good overall sound. At $350, the price is nothing to sneeze at, but the quality is undeniable.
