1. Sony WF-XB700 Extra Bass Earbuds

Sony WF-XB700 Extra Bass Earbuds

The Sony WF-XB700 wireless earbuds are designed to deliver some of the deepest bass you’ll ever hear from wireless earbuds. These earbuds are truly wireless and designed with Sony’s extra bass feature to improve the bass performance.

When we tested these earbuds, we were impressed by how much bass they could produce. The bass is incredibly deep and loud, but doesn’t drown out the mids and highs. The bass feels tight and thumping without being muddy, and it preserves the natural sound of the upper-midrange frequencies.

The mid-bass go very deep, and the way that these earbuds handle the lower-mids is careful and detailed. These are hands down the best earbuds that any bass lover would want to get their hands on for an incredible bass-heavy music experience.

Apart from their deep low-bass feature, these earbuds are equipped with 9 hours of battery life with a total 18 hours with the charging case. That’s not bad, considering how loud these earbuds sound and how much bass they can produce.

These earbuds are also IPX4 water-resistant and are great earbuds for outdoors where you can workout to the beat of the music. The earbuds also have button controls to adjust the volume as you workout outdoors.

You don’t need to EQ these earbuds to get low-end bass – they are naturally bass-heavy, and are great for bass heads who enjoy nothing but the deepest possible bass from a set of wireless earbuds.

2. Jabra Elite 75t Wireless Earbuds

Jabra Elite 75t Wireless Earbuds

Coming in a close second, the Jabra Elite 75ts are capable for delivering extremely low-end bass with good mid-bass response as well. They are an upgrade from the Jabra Elite 65ts and sound much better than the Elite 85ts when we tested them. If you love the Jabra brand and want earbuds that can deliver the deepest possible bass, the Elite 75ts are for you.

In fact, the bass on these earbuds is so strong that you can literally hear the bass on music that doesn’t actually need bass in it (such as instrumental, vocal music). It also comes with an app that you can use to EQ the settings if you find the bass too deep or overwhelming.

The Elite 75ts have strong battery life and active noise cancelling. The active noise cancelling works to filter out noises and provides a comfortable listening experience. It also has long battery life – the earbuds itself deliver up to 8 hours of playtime and an additional 24 hours on the charging case.

Surprisingly, the Elite 75ts are designed to be slightly smaller than the 65ts – which is a great upgrade as they don’t feel as bulky or as “protruding”. They support all the latest Bluetooth codecs for flawless wireless music streaming.

Overall, these are hands down the best wireless earbuds Jabra has to offer with the deepest bass we’ve ever heard from the Elite series.

4. Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds

Razer Hammerhead True Wireless Earbuds

If there are two words to describe the sound of the Razer Hammerhead, it’s bass and clarity. The bass on these earbuds is tight and punchy, but not muddy in any way. We played a couple of soundtracks through these earbuds and found that they really emphasize the bass frequencies without muddying into the midrange. These earbuds are designed for an audience that clearly loves bass.

The Razer Hammerheads are equipped with advanced active noise cancelling which keeps out background noises for a quieter listening experience. While the ANC here isn’t much to brag about, it still works, and cancels around 70-80% of noise which enhances the overall bass impact. There’s a slight bass boost when you turn on the ANC feature.

What’s interesting about these earbuds is that they are THX certified earbuds, and provides great sound for cinematic audio immersion. This allows the earbuds to present a rich and balanced soundstage for movies and gaming, which is great if you watch a lot of Netflix or play games on mobile.

These truly wireless earbuds use 60ms low-latency connection for faster connectivity, and also has a quick attention mode for hearing your surroundings during workouts.

Overall, these are pretty unique earbuds with THX sound and deep bass performance, and are designed for movies, games and music.

9.0

OUTSTANDING
Designed for movies and games, the Razer Hammerhead delivers more bass and sound effects than expected with its THX drivers

5. Sennheiser CX 400BT Wireless Earbuds

Sennheiser CX 400BT Wireless Earbuds

The Sennheiser CX 400BT are the latest true wireless earbuds from Sennheiser which deliver sound of the best, pristine sounding audio quality we’ve heard so far. The earbuds are also more comfortable to wear with their smaller 7mm dynamic driver and 4-ear adapter sizes, and provide up to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge.

The sound quality of the 400BTs make these earbuds stand out from the pack. They have really wide, detailed soundstage and deliver solid clean bass. The bass feels tight and punchy, not the kind that feels muddy in the midranges. The midrange is satisfying to listen to and vocals feel well accentuated. Out of all the Sennheiser wireless earbuds we have tested (i.e., Sennheiser Momentum 2, etc.), the 400BTs blow everything else out of the water with their deep, clean bass response.

While these earbuds aren’t active noise cancelling, they provide excellent sound quality without sounding overly bass-boosted. There’s plenty of bass (even overwhelming bass) that stays where bass should be – at the lower-end without crossing over to the higher frequencies.

The 400BTs also come with an app which allows you to modify EQ and personalize your listening experience (together with a built-in audio equalizer).

Overall, these earbuds are very comfortable to wear and provide excellent sound quality with great bass response. While bass is not something you’d expect from Sennheiser, the CX 400BTs are a completely different beast altogether.

Our Score

8.8

out of 10

Verdict
GREAT
The CX 400BTs are the most bass-heavy earbuds from Sennheiser that can really pack a punch with great sound quality

6. The Performer Raycon Wireless Earbuds

The Performer Raycon Wireless Earbuds

The Performer Raycons are relatively new true wireless earbuds and we were glad to test them out. We were struck by the level of bass that these earbuds have – the punchiness of the bass exceeded our expectations without even needing to EQ these earbuds. The earbuds can produce the deep kind of bass that you’d hear from a cinematic subwoofer without any tweaking in the music app.

The Raycon earbuds are pretty lightweight and comfortable to wear. What we like about them is the soft silicone gel tips which fit in nicely into the ears without feeling protruding. It’s also equipped with a battery life that can deliver up to 7 hours of playtime on a single charge. The charging case can also hold up to 5 more charges (totalling 35 hours of playtime).

One feature that makes these earbuds stand out is that they can be used independently or used together. This is useful if you want to listen to a podcast or music audio with another person without cutting off the connection (unlike the Jabra 65ts, which automatically disconnect when one earbud is taken off the ear).

While the Performer Raycon are relatively newer wireless earbuds, they deliver some serious punchy bass and a sleek ergonomic design to boot.

Our Score

8.7

out of 10

Verdict
GREAT
The Performer Raycons are the latest kid in the block that delivers stunning bass, clean midrange and sleek ergonomics

7. Skullcandy Indy ANC Wireless Earbuds

Skullcandy Indy Wireless Earbuds

The Skullcandy Indys have been a popular favorite among bass heads for some time, and for good reason. These earbuds are simply badass when it comes to bass – the bass feels so low and deep that it reaches your soul. You’ll get goosebumps listening to music just wearing the Skullcandy Indys with its incredible beats and tight low-end.

Now what makes these earbuds so good is not just the bass – the active noise cancelling is amazing. We never expected Skullcandys to produce a set of earbuds as good as the Sony WF 1000XM3s, but the noise cancelling is absolutely amazing. They can cancel around 95% of background noise and you won’t hear conversations or people around you – just pure silence.

This is why the bass on the Skullcandy Indy earbuds sounds so good with the ANC turned on. The bass goes very deep and punchy, and makes EDM music rattle through your bones.

While Skullcandy is known for its bass, the Skullcandy Indy blows everything out of the water with their incredible low-end and powerful ANC performance.

The classic earbuds for bass, the Skullcandy Indy’s are the best earbuds from Skullcandy when it comes to bass and noise cancelling

8. JBL Live 300 Wireless Earbuds

JBL Live 300 Wireless Earbuds

What sets the JBL Live 300 earbuds apart from the rest is its loud, clean bass performance. The bass stays where it should be as “bass”, and doesn’t muddy into the mids or highs. The midrange feels crisp and accurate, and very clean like the highs. The JBL Live 300 allows you to hear subtle details in the music that you won’t expect to hear, and the bass low-end response is very impressive.

The volume level on the JBL Live 300 can go very loud – at maximum volume they don’t distort, or producing any hissing noise. The bass is consistent and can even be heard at low-volumes, which is a pretty decent achievement considering how small these earbuds actually are.

The Live 300 also features intelligent functions with ambient aware and talk-through modes; you just need to swipe on the wireless earbuds to activate them.

Battery-wise, these earbuds provide up to 6 hours of playtime on a single charge, with an additional 14 hours with the charging case. The app also works extremely well with custom EQ and presets.

Overall, these are really solid true wireless earbuds from JBL and deliver good bass with decent audio quality

1More Quad Driver In-ear Earbuds

The 1More Quad drivers are the only wired old-school earbuds on this list, and for good reason. These earbuds are famous for their sound performance, and the bass response on these earbuds is tight and strong but never over-bearing. The mids and highs are crisp and clear with incredible levels of accuracy. These are the earbuds that can bring out the most in your music soundtracks, and aren’t too expensive either compared to other true wireless earbud brands.

The sound quality on these earbuds is phenomenal. They remain consistently clear at any volume and even at max volume they maintain good accuracy without any break up or distortion. These earbuds have insanely good soundstage for an IEM, which sounds super detailed and crystal clear.

These earbuds produce the kind of bass that feels satisfyingly deep; the bass hits you where it matters the most. The earbuds do not artificially produce “bass” in songs that don’t require bass. They are some of the most natural sounding bass-heavy earbuds available.

The 1More Quad Driver earbuds have 4 drivers – one dynamic and 3 balanced armatures for vocal clarity and sound. Be sure to get the version with the latest wired iPhone connector if you are going to listen to these earbuds.

10. Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

Samsung Galaxy Buds Live

While you might not expect to find the Samsung Galaxy buds on this list, we’ve decided to put them here for a few reasons. First, the sound on the Galaxy Buds is incredibly clear and unlike anything we’ve heard before. Second, the bass on these earbuds is absolutely phenomenal, and music sounds incredibly detailed, loud and clear with its active noise cancelling turned on.

Let’s talk more about the bass – these earbuds are equipped with an AKG-tuned 12mm speaker with enhanced bass tone. They feel more spacious and provide a wider soundstage as compared to the previous generations of Galaxy Buds. The bass feels tight and punchy, and elevates the entire listening experience without muddying into the midrange. The mid-bass feels tight and well-developed, especially for more vocal orientated soundtracks.

The Galaxy Buds Live also has active noise cancelling which blocks out background noises. While they aren’t as good as the Sony WH1000XM3s, they still deliver reasonable noise cancelling which enhances the bass response.

Apart from all that, these earbuds are super sleek and ergonomic to wear, and definitely feels like a quality set of earbuds with wider soundstage and improved bass.

8.0
