Looking for the best true wireless earbuds for Kpop listening? As being the team’s go-to person to reviewing audio products–True Wireless earbuds specifically–it has been a baseline for me to use popular KPop songs as my way of determining sound quality. After all, one buys a pair of true wireless earbuds not just for convenience and the features it offers, but for sound quality that is a step up compared to your usual pair of wired cans.
After months of reviewing true wireless earbuds from various brands, I figured that the ones that offer the best value for money are those priced anywhere between Php 2k to Php 5k. That being said, here are 5 of the best true wireless earbuds I’ve reviewed so far–along with the perfect KPop song to listen to them.
Best True Wireless Earbuds For Kpop:
- OnePlus Buds Z
- 1More ColorBuds
- realme Buds Air Pro
- Tranya T10
- vivo TWS NEO
Whether you choose the plain Jane white or the psychedelic Steven Harrington Edition, the Buds Z deliver a good amount of bass while preserving the mids and highs as much as possible. They can go real loud, and they have Fast Pair, Fast Charging, and Wear Detection sensors–things you rarely find in a sub-Php 3k pair of true wireless earbuds.
Recommended KPop song: How You Like That by Blackpink because this track from their first studio album has a heavy amount of bass drops, and the Buds Z handles them quite well while giving justice to the vocals of Jennie, Lisa, Jisoo, and Rose.
1More is a brand known for value-for-money audio products, and the ColorBuds definitely delivers. They are the only one in this list that uses a balanced armature, which led into a more compact and stylish design. The ColorBuds’ soundstage has excellent separation in delivering crisp details for the mids and highs. They also feature packed with aptX, wear detection sensors, upgradable firmware, and wireless charging.
These ultra-compact pair of true wireless earbuds are priced at Php 3,490.
Recommended KPop song: Celebrity by IU because of the song’s delicate instruments and IU’s intricate vocals are rendered perfectly with the ColorBuds. Plus, the ColorBuds very compact design does remind us of IU’s petite (and cute) stature.
realme is synonymous with value for money products, and the Buds Air Pro is their best true wireless earbuds to date. They are the only one in this list to have ANC, and they do deliver in both filtering noise and maintaining audio fidelity. With the realme Link companion app, the Buds Air Pro gets various customization features from Game Mode, touch control mapping, to firmware upgrades.
They are on sale as of this writing at realme’s Official Lazada store for Php 4065.94.
Recommended KPop song: I Can’t Stop Me by Twice because you literally can’t sleep on the Buds Air Pro! They deliver a well-balanced soundstage that gives justice to the song’s complex instrumentals while offering ANC to silence the naysayers in your life.
Sometimes size does matter, and the T10’s 12mm graphene drivers deliver a grand soundstage that is a cut above its rivals using smaller drivers. Those bigger drivers can go loud and still deliver detailed mids and highs–with the option for enhancing lows further if you enable Bass Boost. aptX is also included so that you can enjoy quality HiFi audio wirelessly.
The T10 is priced at Php 2,390.
Recommended KPop song: HWAA by (G)-IDLE because they like doing grand things with their self-written songs through spectacular music video concepts, and their overall sound compliments the T10’s large 12mm drivers.
As vivo’s first true wireless earbuds officially available in the Philippines, the TWS Neo is compelling as it offers premium, studio-grade audio quality for under Php 5k. Aside from the stellar audio quality it offers, the TWS Neo comes with the latest Qualcomm audio chip with aptX adaptive for low-latency, wireless HiFi audio and one of the best touch and slide controls in its class.
Fancy them? The TWS Neo is priced at Php 4,999 at vivo’s official Lazada store.
Recommended KPop song: Not Shy by Itzy because vivo is definitely not shy in flexing all their innovation and tech knowledge with the TWS Neo. Like the 2-year old KPop group, the TWS Neo is solid proof that even if vivo is new to the true wireless audio scene, the brand delivers with stellar offerings.
