They may not be the absolute top-of-the-line model in Bose's wired earbud portfolio -- that'd be the SoundTrue Ultra -- but they get the job done well for the price.

When we reviewed Cambridge Soundworks' Oontz Angle 3 Plus in 2017, we appreciated the combination of rich sound, small size and low price. (The excellent battery life, water-resistance and speakerphone capabilities didn't hurt, either.)
