When true wireless earphones first strolled into the world, Apple ruled the roost with its silky smooth AirPods. Now though, there's more choice than you can shake a stick at, and Optoma has just thrown another option into the mix with the unveiling of its NuForce BE Free6 ($99) true wireless in-ear buds. The classy looking earphones use Bluetooth 5.0. to offer expansive connectivity (which lets each bud be connected to a different device), and pack dynamic drivers with NuForce proprietary sonic coating to help crank out high-quality audio. A fast-charging battery offers 6 hours of power on a single charge, and if you need a quick refuel can deliver 2 hours of listening time after just 15 minutes in the charging case. Toss in a swish ergonomic design, a built-in microphone, and water resistance for those heady gym sessions, and you've got a pair of buds that should go the distance no matter what you throw at 'em.
