20 Best TWS Earbuds With The Longest Battery Life 2021

20 Best TWS Earbuds With The Longest Battery Life | 2021 Edition

Keep Listening!

The TWS trend keeps growing and honestly, I never thought that these wireless earbuds might advance this much that they will start to compete with the wired earphones or IEMs in terms of sound and connectivity. The battery of the earbuds has always been one of the downsides if we look back. However, in 2021, this isn’t the downside anymore. Some earbuds have reached a stupendous 15 h on a single charge. So, here’s the list of 20 best tws earbuds with the longest battery life on the market.

Note: I have created the 20 best tws earbuds with the longest battery life according to playtime on a single charge. Why not the total playtime including the battery case? Because there are some earbud cases that also feature a power bank feature for smartphones which allow them to charge up to 20 times. So, it will not be fair to add those to the list. Moreover, the playtime is arranged according to the time given by the manufacturer. I reality the battery life is usually 1 to 3 hours less and depends on the volume and features like ANC etc.

Includes all earbuds till June 2021.

20 Best TWS Earbuds With The Longest Battery Life

1. JLab Audio Epic Air Sports ANC

JLab Audio Epic Air

Starting the list of 20 best TWS earbuds with the longest battery, we have the  JLab Audio Epic Air as the best of all 20 earbuds. The individual 120mAh batteries give them an amazing playtime of 15 hours, when combined with the 2600mAh battery in their charging case they give the user an amazing 70-hour playtime. In addition, its charging time is of 2.5 hours. Though they might not last that much on ANC feature on, however, the ANC feature of these is just mediocre. so I do recommend not using it.

On the other hand, speaking of their specifications and features, they are specially designed for exercise, as they fit around the ear for maximum grip. They have Bluetooth 5.0, are IP66 waterproof, and, at the sound level, their main highlight is the powerful bass it gives. Though it might take some time to charge both the earbuds and case, however, it’s worth the long wait. The only downside is the unique USB Type-A charging (standard USB port) instead of the more common Type-C. Well, at least it isn’t MicroUSB.

  • Earbuds playtime: 15 hours
  • Charging case playtime: 55 hours
  • Total time: 70 hours

20 Best TWS Earbuds With The Longest Battery Life - Soundpeats sonic 1

Soundpeats Sonic or the Sonic Pro, another tws earbuds which deliver the same 15 hours of playtime on a single charge as the previously mentioned JLab Audio Epic Air Sports ANC. I have placed Sonic at no.2 because of the charging case, which allows you to charge the earbuds 2 times, allowing a total battery life of 45 hours (15 + 30 h). Otherwise, in terms of all other aspects, it’s way better than the Jlab Audio Epic Air especially the connectivity, sound, and even a faster charging time.

Moving to the features, the Soundpeats sonic boasts about the most updated Bluetooth 5.2 module, a fast QC3040 Qualcomm chip for lightning connectivity, Type-C port, a dedicated game mode, and CVC 8.0. The strong striking bass defines the sound. There’s the new pro version as well which offers better sound with dual drivers for better separation and details, retaining the same strong bass.

All three earbuds from the Outlier series are worth praising, however, the creative outlier gold is the best among them and also the most expensive as well. The gold version has a battery life of 14 hours on a single charge. That is why it comes at no.3 on our list of 20 best tws earbuds with the longest battery life.

Why do I recommend it?
