While some audio purists continue to put wired cans on a pedestal, it is hard to deny how far their wireless counterparts have come from the Bluetooth technology’s infancy stages.

Wireless headphones are exploding in popularity with some of the bigger names in consumer audio devices putting more time and effort into developing them over their wired counterparts. Additionally, wireless headphones are often more compact and travel-friendly. The next time you’re on a plane, which is rarer these days due to the pandemic, take a look around you.
