Bluetooth headphones have revolutionized the way we listen to music and communicate wirelessly. Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows data to be transmitted over short distances without cables. In the case of headphones, this means audio can be streamed from a device such as a smartphone or computer to the headphones without the need for cables. Users can thus enjoy their favorite content, such as music or Netflix streaming, from anywhere.
TWS stands for "True Wireless Stereo" and is the latest technology to provide an advanced Bluetooth connection. TWS technology allows two earbuds to wirelessly communicate and work together to deliver high-quality stereo sound with no physical connection between them or to any device.
TWS technology is now widespread and there are many popular and affordable models. In recent years, the popularity of TWS earbuds has led to increased competition among manufacturers, resulting in falling prices and wider availability of TWS technology. Although some high-end TWS earbuds can be quite expensive (like the Apple Airpods Pro and Samsung Buds), many mid-range and budget options offer impressive sound quality, reliable connectivity, and convenient features like touch controls, voice assistant integration, and waterproofing. Our bestsellers for years are the TWS Pro and the TWS AirPro.
Overall, TWS Bluetooth technology is a popular and affordable option for those looking for wireless earbuds with quality sound and convenient features. Whether you're on a budget or willing to invest in a "high-end" pair, there are plenty of TWS earbuds to choose from to suit your needs and preferences.

In TWS i12 are practical and affordable Bluetooth headphones. At this price you don't have to worry if the headphones should ever get lost. Since TWS 5.0 is used, it may take a while to pair the first time, but should run smoothly after that. They are available in different colors and with ENJOOY it is even possible to engrave the charging box.
After you have the TWS i12 tested, we recommend them if you are a first-time buyer of Bluetooth headsets and want to know if Bluetooth headphones are right for you. We also recommend them as a gift for teenagers, who sometimes misplace or lose something.
In TWS Pro are a newer and improved version of our TWS i12, mainly optimized the design (i.e. smaller), the sound quality (improved bass) and thanks to the TWS 5.1 the first pairing with these headphones should work easily. These headphones are good for the daily commute across Switzerland as, depending on the volume, you can still hear the surrounding noise well. The TWS Pro offers different color variants and is also convincing in terms of price.
After we got the wireless Bluetooth headphones TWS Pro charged for an hour, we listened to music continuously for 3,5 hours. After 3,5 hours, we put the headphones back into the charging case and we were able to listen to another 3,5 hours of uninterrupted music. The headphones can be charged several times with the charging case, so you can use these headphones for more than 7 hours with a charging time of one hour.
We have these wireless ones TWS Pro tested very extensively. If you check out our social media channels, you'll see that we put these headphones in the washing machine, dropped them in a fountain several times and threw them from rooftops. These cheap headphones are awesome!!
The wireless headphones TWS AirPro are compatible with all mobile devices that have Bluetooth. The headphones have a lightweight and ergonomic design, roughly comparable to the Apple Airpods Pro. These Bluetooth headphones include four silicone ear tips for an adjustable and comfortable fit while reducing outside noise.
With Bluetooth 5.1 technology, you can enjoy improved sound quality with faster pairing speed and stable connectivity. These headphones have more noticeable bass and active noise cancellation. The TWS Air Pro headphones also have an in-ear sensor that stops when the headphones are removed from the ear and restarts when the headphones are put back in the ear.
Battery life has improved significantly, with up to 5 hours of continuous playback and a total of 24 hours of charging from the charging case.
The wireless Bluetooth headphones with power bank function are best suited for people who appreciate an improved sound experience (compared to the TWS i12). TWS 5.1 technology allows for easy pairing and the earbuds allow for passive noise cancellation.
The integrated power bank (500 mAh) in the charging box is a big plus. You can charge your headphones as well as your smartphone (10% of our iPhone 8 will be charged). We did not test the waterproofness of the headphones ourselves. However, the manufacturer states an IPX5 water resistance. The headphones shouldn't have any problems with coffee splashes or light rain.
Of course we tested several different models of Bluetooth headphones with power bank function. We prefer this model because of the good sound quality, the high charging capacity of the power bank and because of the modern LED display.
After testing the headphones for several weeks, we recommend this product based on the following three criteria: sound quality, noise cancellation and power bank function.
The Lenovo LP40, Lenovo LP40 Pro and Lenovo LP1S are great headphones and most people know and trust the brand. They are lightweight, easy to carry and have excellent sound quality. They also have a built-in microphone for phone calls. However, the TWS Air Pro have the best sound quality and are still the best headphones we've tested.
TWS or True Wireless Sound is a technology in which the headphones are connected to the smartphone via Bluetooth (instead of a cable). It is important to note that TWS 5.0 is the "default" for most devices. However, TWS 5.1 makes it easier and faster to pair the headphones.
Noise cancellation is often misunderstood. Noise-cancelling headphones use active noise control to reduce ambient noise. This differs from headphones which use passive techniques such as soundproofing. Noise cancellation makes it possible, for example, to listen to music without having to increase the volume excessively.
