Wireless headphones and ear buds for travel with long battery life

Wireless headphones are amazing for travelling! The entire process of going through airports, dealing with people with travellers anxiety and delays etc is super frustrating. This is why I look for anything that will make my life easier when I travel, dealing with tangled cords is now a thing of the past when you buy wireless headphones! When you use these devices they can double as a noise cancelling device and help you sleep better.

We specifically wrote with long battery life because there are a lot of really bad quality wireless headphones out there that have poor battery life. This can be super annoying because this is supposed to make your life easier. Imagine being on a tour like a dive boat and you want to listen to your tunes only to have 20 mins battery life. That would suck, so make sure you take notes on this one as it will help you make a wise decision. We are going to look at the best quality wireless headphones and what you need to know about them. The top 5 wireless headphones are all really good in my opinion, it is all about how they fit in your ear and the features they have for what you are doing.


What to look for with wireless headphones and ear buds for Travel.

1. Noise cancellation, if you get headphones with noise cancellation you will not need to bring along a set of ear plugs. The sound quality is usually better with these units and you can hear if someone like a stewardess is speaking directly to you. The technology is amazing and it creates an ambiance for you that is very relaxing and non invasive.

2. Long battery life. The better the battery life the more you use them, I like built in lithium ion batteries.Some batteries can easily last up to 6 hours!

3. Sweat and weather resistant. This is very important because you may be using these while you trek the hot jungle, or at the beach is the blazing sun, or while you workout!

4.Trackeable. Some earbuds can be tract via an app that it comes with like the Bose soundsport headphones. These things are not cheap and are often very small so you want to make sure you don’t loose them.

5. Adjustable sport tips are a plus so that the earbuds can fit into almost every ear type.

6.Quick charging is great if you want to maximize t=he usage of the device. Some units can be charged within 30 mins while you eat lunch at the airport to a full charge.

7. Choose your style. There are headphone style like the popular beats by dr dre, totally wireless models like the iPhone earbuds or Bose soundsport, or you can get the semi wired models like the power beats 3 or plantronics are great if you like jogging or simply don’t trust that an earbud will not fall out of your ear because they wrap around the ear.

8. Light weight. A major purpose of this is comfort. you don’t want anything adding additional stress to your ear.

9. Waterproof if you want to be able to swim with these. Plantronics and the beats 3 are waterproof/resistant.

10. Control talk, some headphones will also allow you to speak wirelessly using your phone
