One of the most desired functionality on earbuds today is the one to make hands-free calls, and that is really useful sometimes. Just imagine you are running on the street with you earbuds on, and someone calls you. If you don’t have an earbud with a mic you have to stop running to pick up your phone and answer the call, with an earbud with a mic, this is no longer a problem since you can answer the call just pushing a button on the earbud.
This is what a lot of people is looking for nowadays, simplicity. But if you don’t know what to look for, it can be a difficult task and sometimes you’ll be disappointed with you decision. This is why I am here to help you choose today the best earbuds with mic for your needs.
What should I look for?
- Mic quality – No one wants to hear background noise when talking on the phone, so at least the call should be clear. However, even on pricey models, you won’t find a very high-quality microphone.
- Sound – Well, the basic function of the earbud is to play music, so it has to be done with quality, choose according to your musical taste.
- Durability – Like I said before, an earbud should last for a year of more. Pay attention to the materials quality, cable strength, and warranty details.
- Compatibility – Make sure to verify if the earbud is compatible with your device to avoid frustrations later.
