Despite many tries, no company has nailed truly wireless earbuds. Apple's AirPods come close, but the lack of sports-friendly features has always been a problem. That's why I was so excited to see Sony release a set of truly wireless earbuds that are not only tight-fitting and water resistant, they also come with noise-cancelling. After two weeks of testing, I have to admit that the new Sony buds aren't perfect, but they're seductively good.

Apple crushed a big problem when it released the AirPods. Companies had been trying -- and failing -- to build truly wireless earbuds for years. But then Apple showed up and was like, "Here they are!" Now, it's Bose's turn. The new SoundSport Free wireless earbuds are sleek, powerful, and dependable. The Bose buds can do things that the AirPods can't. They're also $US250.
Everyone's got a bit of AirPod fever, it seems. In the wake of Apple's announcement of its tiny wire-free rechargeable earbuds, every man and his dog has introduced some kind of wireless earphones. Bose's first look like they could well be the pick of the litter, too -- in part due to a new antenna setup for reliable Bluetooth, a common complaint with these tiny earbuds.
