Wireless earbuds and headphones are among the most popular products on CNET. Not only do we test a lot of earbuds, but we create a lot of best lists to help folks narrow down their choices and navigate the buying process. After testing dozens of models, the Sony WF-1000XM4 currently sits at the top of the list -- and it's actually on sale right now, too.

Prime Day is coming up in just a few weeks and -- if you're like most people -- you probably have plenty of preferences and specifics when it comes to headphone shopping. To that end, we also have more granular lists for those looking for specific types of earbuds with certain qualities or more specific uses. We've compiled all those best lists here on one landing page to give you quick access to our comprehensive earbuds buying advice.
