One of the best go-to gifts for music lovers of all ages is a quality pair of earbuds. There are a lot of different options that make them a perfect choice for your loved ones’ stocking. Whether it’s a nephew’s first pair of earbuds or upgrading a family member so they can experience the joys of truly wireless headphones, here are a few options you can choose for the music lovers on your gift list.

Outer ear Apple Airpods for wireless music listening

Apple Airpods

Apple earbuds have come a long way over the years, turning their classic plug in headphones into Airpods. They have become a classic go-to option for ease of use and compatibility with other Apple devices. I’ve personally always loved the unobtrusive nature of outer ear earbuds. They are more comfortable over long listening sessions because they rest just on the outside of your ear canal, and that comfortable fit makes them a great choice for kids getting used to these devices.

They also have multi-speaker-designed audio output and shape, so you’ll still get great audio quality even compared to higher-budget in-ear earbuds. The storage case also lets you listen for up to 30 hours with 6-hour sessions between charging, removing the stress of constantly charging your device.

Sony sound isolating WI-C100s

Sony has a lot of options when you’re looking for stylish and lightweight earbuds, with the WI-C100 having one of the more unique designs on the market. You get the benefit of both Bluetooth and a connected wire at the same time. They have a long 25-hour battery lifespan with a built-in microphone for taking calls or using voice commands. The overall design and features make them a great choice for anyone who wants a set of earbuds for work and play.

Skullcandy Affordable Wireless Earbuds with carrying handle case

When it comes to affordable earbuds, Skullcandy is one of the first brands that comes to mind. Lately, they’ve been making strides in increasing the quality and range of their devices too. Skullcandy now offers fully wireless options like the Skullcandy Dime 2 that sound even better than they look.

These earbuds make excellent stocking stuffers at a fraction of the price of the competition, and they still provide you with great sound quality. The Dime earbuds even come with a solid case including a strap to prevent them from getting lost. They also have most of the features you would expect from wireless earbuds including sweat resistance, 12-hour battery life, sound isolation, and more.

JBL Tune Noise cancelling truly wireless earbuds.

JBL Vibe and Tune wireless earbuds

JBL is a brand known for its excellent audio and durability, and that quality extends to the brand’s wireless earbuds. The JBL Vibe Series impressed me right away with its professional design and case features. My favorite part about this series is how they produce multiple versions and you can choose the types of features you’re personally looking for in an earbud. Some have with better battery life, others have better waterproofing or you can choose from varying sound features for everyone on your gift list.

Another option from JBL is the JBL Tune. These earbuds have powerful bass and noise cancellation, and this functionality can be a lifesaver for blocking out noise in environments when studying, working, or just when you’re on the go.
