LG usually does a fairly decent job at packing their smartphones with some decent speakers, but they all still seem to have at least one issue: the loudness capabilities are absolutely terrible. They might have some clear and rich sound, but it’s fairly quiet, especially if you get a model without the Quad DAC. That said, an easy way to clear that problem up is to get yourself a quality pair of wireless headphones for the LG V40 ThinQ.
What headphones should you pick up for the phone, though? With so many options out on the market, it can be a really difficult choice. If you follow along below, we’ll show you some of the best out there. Here are our top picks.
First up on our list are the Jaybird X3’s. These are an excellent pair of headphones for those that don’t want to spend gobs of money on a pair of headphones, but still want something worth writing home about. These are made with some excellent comfort, which means you shouldn’t have a problem listening to these for hours. Jaybird has actually been able to pack some excellent sound quality inside of these headphones, so you’ll only get rich and clear sound coming out of these bad boys. And with a built-in microphone, taking hands-free calls will be no problem.
We also really like the battery life that Jaybird has packed in these. A full charge will get you eight hours of straight music playback. And with water resistance built-in, these won’t have a problem being used in harsher weather conditions as well during a tough workout!
The Beats PowerBeats3 is next up on our list, and is better than the Jaybird X3’s in almost every way. Beats, as per the norm, has been able to nail the sound formula with these. Suffice to say, the PowerBeats3 are excellent sounding wireless headphones. You can play almost any genre with these, and hear all of the detail with crisp and clear quality.
One of our favorite aspects of these is the comfort level. You can put these in your ear and listen for hours on end with little to no discomfort. They’re really great for casual listening, but can also be used well for workouts, too. Battery life is really nice in these, with a single charge getting you 12 hours of straight music playback. After just 15 minutes on the wire, you can get another hour of juice out of these, too.
If you’re looking for a pair of headphones that are truly wireless, look no further than the Jaybird RUN wireless headphones. These don’t even have wires connecting the two earbuds together — you just press the power button on the side of the earbuds to turn them on, and they automatically pair to each other.
The headphones overall are pretty comfortable, and they also provide you with rich, crisp and clear sound. Battery life is decent, and when you run out of juice, just set them in the charging case for a quick charge.
You might also want to consider the Beats Solo3’s. These are pair of full size headphones, and Beats has been able to pack some excellent sound quality into these. You’ll be able to hear every detail in almost every genre of music, including genres that have a heavier bass. It all flows nicely.
Battery life is probably the most impressive aspect of these headphones. Charge these up to full, and you get a whole 40 hours of straight music playback. When you’re running out of juice, just five minutes on the wire will get you another three hours of playback. Or, if you want to use these for hands-free calling, you just need to plug in the 3.5mm audio jack for the in-line microphone and remote.
The Soundmoov’s are our favorite option for those that dont’ want to spend too much money on a pair of wireless headphones for LG V40 ThinQ. These will cost you $50, and still provide you with excellent comfort and sound quality. These are also truly wireless earbuds, which means there are no wires connecting them. Power them on, and they automatically pair to each other.
You may not like the battery life, as they only have a straight 2.5 hours of music playback. However, if you run out of juice and decide that you need more, just throw them in the included charging case to juice them up quickly. Sound quality is overall good, but naturally in a cheaper pair of headphones, you’re going to get some distortion at higher volume levels.
There’s no short of wireless headphones for LG V40 ThinQ, but which one is the right one for you? If you want the best of the best, you really cannot go wrong with the Beats Solo3’s. However, if you’re looking for low profile in-ear options, the Jaybird X3’s or the Beats PowerBeats3’s are the way to go.
