In 2015, MobileSyrup presented its first-ever Touque Test, a strenuous program that looks for to discover the most “touque-able” earbuds readily available.
Each year, Huge Tech business present brand-new cordless earbuds with elegant functions and they are regularly a hot product. In the cold Canadian winter season, the fanciest functions in the world suggest absolutely nothing if you can’t easily use a touque with your earbuds.
Thus, the Touque Test, a yearly Canadian numeration for Huge Tech.
Listed below you’ll discover a list of cordless earbuds checked by the MobileSyrup group throughout 2021 in addition to a quick description of the earbuds’ “touque-ability” and a rating out of 5 possible points (5 being most comfy in a touque and one being … not).
Likewise, prior to we enter the Touque Test, the MobileSyrup group has had an intense argument over the proper spelling of the hat– is it touque, toque or toque? CBC News tried to address this concern back in 2013 however stopped working to reach an agreement.
Let us understand your ideas in the remarks down below.
AirPods (3rd Gen)
Apple’s newest and biggest AirPods are quite very little when they remain in your ears so they fit well under many winter season headgear, varying from hats to helmets. They do not lock into your ears extremely firmly, which suggests they’re rather simple to knock out. Even more, if you’re using a mask and a touque, it can frequently be a difficulty getting rid of or placing on a mask with the AirPods in. That stated, the stems do permit simple control of the buds without needing to raise your hat excessive.
Master & Dynamic MW08
The Master & Characteristics MW08 s are good earbuds that sound truly terrific, however considering that they stick up until now out of your ears when you’re utilizing them, they’re not extremely comfy with a touque on. Unlike the AirPods or other stemmed earbuds, the MW08 s do completely tuck under the majority of touques, which is constantly a plus.
Pixel Buds A-Series
If you’re searching for a set of fairly inexpensive cordless earbuds, Google’s Pixel buds A-Series are an excellent choice (specifically if you’re an Android gadget user). Thanks to their silicone wing suggestion, they remain strongly in your ears with a touque on, though if your winter season hat is too tight, this function can likewise make them fall out more quickly. It’s likewise worth keeping in mind the A-Series does not sound rather as great as Google’s now-discontinued Pixel Buds (2020).
Beats Studio Buds
Apple’s 2nd entry on the list is much smaller sized than the AirPods, however they do not fare. Because they protrude even more from your ear, they can quickly move around when your touque relocations. Considering that they likewise utilize silicon pointers, it’s simple to break that in-ear seal and trigger some pain.
Razer Hammerhead Real Wireless
Razer’s brand-new Hammerhead Real Wireless earbuds are really respectable if you like the design of earbuds that beings in your ear with a silicon idea– or if you’re a player that likes RGB. For Canadians is “touque-ability,” and as long as your touque isn’t too tight, these are really not bad. The shiny black surface might be a finger print magnet, however it’s likewise slippery, which implies that touques slide over these earbuds with ease. Tight touques, regrettably, press the earbuds into your ears, which can be actually uneasy depending upon how delicate your ears are and how tight your touque is.
Galaxy Buds 2
Samsung’s Galaxy Buds 2 are a few of the smallest earbuds out there, so it’s not a surprise the buds fit rather comfortably under a touque. If you’re an Android user who works outside a lot, these are a great choice. I will discuss that given that they’re so little, they’re difficult to get with huge gloves on, however you can still handle. Considering that the buds are so rounded they likewise do not get pressed or pulled by the moving hat which is good to see.
OnePlus Buds Pro
The OnePlus Buds Pro function well under a touque thanks to their reasonably smooth style. They likewise have stems so it makes managing the buds a little simpler under your winter season hat. Still, like the AirPods, this implies they’re a bit more vulnerable to getting captured up in a mask string.
Sennheiser CX 400 BT
The Sennheiser CX 400 BT press the borders for how far out from your head they stand out and you can actually feel it with a touque on. Tighter hats may even press these into your ears in an unpleasant method. In general, these are not excellent for touque using and they even press the touque up enough around my ears that it permits more cold air to strike them– not cool.
