While these Sony earbuds are now around two years old, CNET's resident audio expert David Carnoy remains impressed with them, thanks to a series of software updates that allows them to compete with some more recent models. In addition to high-fidelity audio and LDAC formats, they also support multipoint Bluetooth pairing so you can connect to two devices at a time.

They're equipped with Sony's V1 processor, which provides top-of-the-line noise-canceling capabilities, and have four internal microphones for impressive, clear audio during hands-free phone calls. The earbuds themselves boast an eight-hour battery life, which is bumped up to 24 hours total with the charging case, and have an IPX4 weather-resistance rating, so they're protected against sweat and splashing.
