A wireless charger may be one of the most handy gizmos today. This small but compact device lets you charge your compatible earphones, phones, and even your smartwatch. If you have one and, at the same time, are planning to upgrade your wireless earbuds, then investing in one of the top wireless earbuds with wireless charging may be a clever decision.
While these earphones support wired charging, it never hurts to drop them and let them charge overnight or over a long period. With this, you do not have to go through the hassle of taking out the charging cable and plugging them in unless you are looking for faster charging speed.
Besides that, the wireless earphones with wireless charging case on our list deliver the best possible audio output.
So without further ado, let’s check out the best earbuds with wireless charging. But first,
- These are the top earbuds for Samsung Galaxy S23 series smartphones
- Here are the earbuds with the longest battery life
- Check out these excellent earbuds for Google Pixel phones
1. Nothing Ear (2)
- USB-C charging: Yes | Bluetooth codec: SBC, AAC, and LHDC
- IP rating: Earbuds – IP54, Case – IP55
The best part is that these Nothing earphones deliver dynamic music. During our time with these earphones, we found the music had bountiful details, and the songs sounded energetic. For the record, these earphones support AAC, SBC, and LHDC Bluetooth codecs.
At the same time, the Ear (2) earphones are comfortable to wear and stay lodged inside the ear canals. And the IP54 rating of the buds ensures you can wear them to the gym or for your morning walks without any issues.
As noted above, the battery life is decent. On a single charge, these earbuds with wireless charging case, will get you close to 4.5 hours of playback at moderate volume, while the charging case will get you around 22.5 hours. While it may seem a tad less, the good thing is that these earphones will easily last a day (or more) on a single charge. For the record, the Nothing Ear (2) earphones supports wireless charging.
During our time with them, the Ear (2) delivered energetic music. And the unique design and comfortable fit make them a perfect pick in the sub-$150 category. If you want to save money, these are the best buy.
2. OnePlus Buds Pro 2
- USB-C charging: Yes | Bluetooth codec: SBC, AAC, LC3, and LHDC
- IP rating: Earbuds – IP55, Case – IPX4
Though these OnePlus earphones do not have a stand-out design like their counterpart above, they have their distinctive style. The two-tone color finish gives it a stylish look. While they are comfortable to wear, they are not the ideal earphones to wear during your time out or in the gym. As we noted in our OnePlus Buds Pro 2 comparison post, they bite slightly in your ear, especially if you wear them to bed. Secondly, they tend to slip out during strenuous exercise routines and HIIT routines.
The Buds Pro 2 sounds better and offers a wide soundstage. At the same time, the ANC is magically better and can block ambient sounds like the buzz of ceiling fans or the loud clicks of mechanical keyboards.
The battery life is also an advantage here. With ANC, you’ll get around 5 hours of battery life, while the charging case yields around 25 hours of juice. Now, that’s something.
3. Sennheiser MOMENTUM TWS 3
- USB-C charging: Yes | Bluetooth codec: aptX, AAC, SBC, and aptX Adaptive
- IP rating: Earbuds – IPX4, Case – N/A
Like most modern TWS earphones, you can play with the companion app. The one for the Sennheiser MOMENTUM TWS 3 lets you tweak the audio through the EQ presets as per your preference. At the same time, the noise cancellation— both passive and active — is impressive and easily blocks out environmental sounds and regular sounds. The folks at Sound Guys point out that the noise cancellation in these Sennheiser earphones easily blocks out their vocal cat’s meows.
The battery life is also satisfactory. They are rated at around 7 hours with ANC off. The folks at SoundGuys found them to last over 5 hours with ANC. Further, the charging case provides three more cycles and gives you close to 22 hours of battery life.
Like both the earphones above, they support both USB-C and wireless charging. And in case you do not want to go through the hassle of plugging the charging cable, lay them over a wireless charging pad, and that’s about it.
4. Apple AirPods Pro 2
- USB-C charging: No, Lightning | Bluetooth codec: SBC and AAC
- IP rating: Earbuds – IPX4, Case –IPX4
When it comes to the design, they are sleek and slim. And the lack of touch-sensitive controls ensures you can change songs or switch between ANC and Sound Transparency effortlessly. I have been using these Apple earphones since they came out and are bowled over by their comfort. They stay anchored to your ears, even during exercise sessions.
At the same time, they do justice to songs of varied music genres. However, if you are an audiophile and want every minor detail in songs and music tracks to shine through, you might be slightly disappointed. The bass is a tad on the feeble side. While the soundstage is wide, the OnePlus Buds Pro 2 soundstage’s replication is slightly better.
These earphones are the perfect pick if you do not want to get into the details of songs. If you want to listen to songs while you work or during your downtime, they will let you do so easily. Further, they cut out outside noise like a pro. During a recent trip, they drowned out the loud hum of the airplane engine while I worked.
Lastly, the battery life is at par with the others. You get around five hours on a single charge and the charging case provides an additional 25 hours of music playback. These Bluetooth earphones support Qi wireless charging. However, you will have to resort to a Lightning cable to juice them up.
5. Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2
- USB-C charging: Yes | Bluetooth codec: SBC, AAC, and Samsung Scalable Codec
- IP rating: IPX7
The latter means that the earphones will shift the soundstage as you rotate your head. As noted earlier, the audio output is exceptional. And the noise cancellation is not bad either. When enabled, you should be able to cut out any distractions. The folks at The Verge point out that these Samsung earphones can easily drown out normal coffee shop hums and noises. As such, you can focus easily on the job at hand.
The Samsung Galaxy Buds Pro 2 has a similar battery life. With ANC, it can last up to 5 hours, with the charging case delivering around 28 hours more (without ANC). And if you have a Samsung smartphone with the Wireless PowerShare feature, you can charge your buds wirelessly. All you need to do is place the earphones at the back of the Samsung phone, after enabling Wireless PowerShare on the phone.
6. Sony WF-1000XM4
- USB-C charging: Yes | Bluetooth codec: SBC, AAC, and LDAC
- IP rating: IPX4
The folks at Sound Guys opines that the ear tips easily mold to the shape of your ears, which is a huge plus.
The WF-1000XM4 earphones are the successor to the WF-1000XM3. Unlike their predecessor, they are small and sleek. Also, the buds do not stick out of your ears, and the charging case is small enough to fit into pockets.
The battery life is decent, and you get around 8 hours of playback with ANC. And the charging case provides around 2 additional cycles. The ANC delivers one of the best experiences. They seal outside noise both actively and passively. From train noises to regular distracting noises in homes, you can mute them out.
Finally, the companion app has several interesting customization options. You can tweak the EQ settings and remap the buttons, among others.
Snip the Wire
These were some of the best wireless earbuds with wireless charging. The mantra is to find the one, which sits best with your requirements. If you are looking for earbuds with wireless charging for casual listening, any non-premium earphones do just fine. That said, all these earphones are the flagships of their brands, and you would be satisfied with them.
