First, we have some things to look for before purchasing a pair of earbuds.

Are they noise cancelling? Noise cancelling earbuds are essential to drown out cubicle chatters.

Do they have a microphone? Earbuds with mic and volume control. are going to be your best bet, so you can talk without holding the phone to your ear?

Are they tangle free? This is optional for most people, but for me, it’s essential. I had a pair of earbuds get tangled in a pair of my spy prescription glasses. and nearly wrecked my car on the way to work. Tangle free for me from here on out.

Here’s our top list of earbuds:
