2021 Top 5 Best high-end noise-cancelling TWS earbuds

If the last two years have taught us anything, it is the importance of a pair of good noise-cancelling headphones. They offer a quiet world for you to work from home and for your kids to attend online classes. The result is improvements in efficiency and productivity. 

With so many products flooding into the market, it is really hard to pick the right one. If you are looking for true wireless earbuds with ANC (active noise cancellation) technology, you’ve come to the right place. We have chosen five pairs of earbuds to narrow down your choices.

Apple AirPods Pro

May not quite outperform its rivals, but still pretty good

  • Active Noise Cancellation
  • Transparency Mode
  • Ear Tip Fit Test
  • Adaptive EQ
  • Spatial Audio with Dynamic Head Tracking
  • Support Wireless Charging

Upgrading from the last generation, AirPods Pro do come with some surprises. According to Apple, its ANC continuously adapts to the geometry of your ear and the fit of the ear tips, adjusted at 200 times per second. And in order to ensure the best seal for noise cancellation, Apple creates an Ear Tip Fit Test so that you can get the right tip size (from 3 sizes) for your ears.

Along with ANC is the Transparency Mode, which lets outside sound in, allowing you to hear what you want to hear. It will help when you are talking to people nearby or hearing the station announcement.

As for the sound quality, AirPods Pro are equipped with Adaptive EQ, automatically tuning music to the shape of your ear. What’s more, working with an iPhone or iPad, the spatial audio with dynamic head tracking allows the sound to dynamically adjust as you turn your head.

Sony WF-1000XM4

A triumph for Sony

  • Digital Noise Cancelling with Integrated Processor V1
  • Ambient Sound Mode
  • Adaptive Sound Control
  • Voice Pickup Technology
  • Headphones Connect App 
  • Support Wireless Charging

If you want an above-average noise cancellation ability in a pair of true wireless earbuds, WF-1000XM4 will not let you down. Equipped with the new V1 integrated processor developed by Sony, WF-1000XM4 do a better job in noise cancellation than its rivals, and even approaches Sony’s over-ear headphones. 

Despite noise cancellation, you don’t need to worry about missing a thing. Just like Apple’s Transparency Mode, Sony’s Ambient Sound Mode also allows you to hear what’s around you. And the Adaptive Sound Control function automatically adjusts ambient sound settings based on where you are and what you’re doing.

Sound quality and call quality are also highlights. Supporting Sony’s own proprietary LDAC codec, WF-1000XM4 can transmit data at the maximum transfer rate of 990 kbps. This is currently the gold standard for Bluetooth audio. And clear calls are possible thanks to the Voice Pickup Technology, which combines beamforming microphones with a bone-conduction sensor.
