If you're frequently on the move and prioritize compactness and wireless functionality, the Raycon The Everyday Earbuds, with their small size, case that supports wireless charging, sweatproof certification, and good portability score, would be a suitable choice for you. However, if you prefer gaming or use your headphones for extended periods, the Razer Kraken V3 might be better due to its over-ear design, built-in boom microphone for clearer communication, and virtual surround feature, although you'll be sacrificing the convenience of wireless audio and portability. Neither are optimized for audiobook or podcast listening, so for those activities, you might want to consider other options. Both are not the best for exercise or calls and meetings, but if you need active noise canceling for air travel or noise isolation for focus, neither of these would be ideal. Give Feedback

Wired

Parker Hall | January 2023
"Sure, every influencer owns these buds. They’re still pretty good. In this price range, getting anything that seals well in your ears for good soundstage, doesn’t sound like trash, and won’t immediately break is a huge win. The Everyday Buds tick all of those boxes for me, and I intend to use them at least nearly every day; I go to the gym on alternating evenings. Damn it, YouTube. You've cost me good money again."

Soundguys

Sam Smart | November 2022
"This Razer Kraken V3 is a great headset for gamers who want comfort, surround sound, and software customization for a reasonable price. It's primarily a headset for PC gamers since THX Spatial audio is only supported on Windows. If you want something more multifaceted for multiple systems, this won't be an ideal headset for you. Luckily, there are plenty of competent Kraken V3 alternatives available to you."
