You can pay a fortune for wireless earphones which is great if you are an audiophile looking for all the latest features, however some people just want to be able to enjoy their tunes free from wires.

The Aiwa Prodigy Air 2 are a budget pair of wireless earphones that come in under £50, first impressions are that the earbuds are light weight, perhaps a little bulkier than we would have liked but comfortable. They come in a compact charging case with super-fast charging which will give you six hours playback after just 30min charging in the case, this gives a total of 24 hours playback before you need to hunt down a plug socket again. These earbuds connect over Bluetooth 5.0 for a stable stream with zero latency, after the initial set up, they pair automatically when you take them out of the case. The earbuds are impact-resistant with a IPX5 water-resistant rating, making them suitable for workouts and light rainfall, however when running, the combination of light rain, sweat (yes, your ears can sweat) and the movement meant they felt quite loose to the point that the left ear popped out and needed readjusting.

The 6mm precision mylar dynamic drivers deliver a high and mid tone heavy sound, good audio books, pop music or podcasts but if EDM and bass tracks are your go to tunes these may lack the necessary umph. Both earbuds can function as the master so if you need to keep one ear on the world around you the other earbud can be slipped into the pocket without disrupting the connection. The dual built-in microphones and echo cancellation means phone calls can be taken hands free, whilst Siri/ Google Assistant can be activated to answer text messages, skip tracks or check the weather without reaching for your phone. Although the sound quality won’t blow you away and the fit might be a little loose for some when you weigh up the price, the battery life, Bluetooth 5.0 connection and fast charge they are good value for money. RRP £44.99
