There are tons of real-time translator earbuds out there in the market. With our knowledge of some of the challenges of travelers, we did a little research and came out with a list of the best translating earbuds for you to try out.
Language translator buds are very portable and won’t add much to your luggage. It is like a cheat to speak a new language without even learning it. How cool is that? Without further ado, let’s look at some of the best translator earbuds we were able to come up with from our research.
Top 10 Translator Earbuds
Translation earbuds work in two major ways. There’s the two-way translation method where you and the speaker both take one piece of the earbuds. And then there’s the other method where the speaker speaks into the translator app on your phone.
With the second method, you don’t need to share your earbuds with anyone. The bottom line is that there are advantages and disadvantages to both methods. Since I can already see this is going to be a lengthy article, let’s dive into the list very quickly.
- Timekettle WT2 Plus Language Translator.
- JoveTrans Lite Translator Earbuds.
- Pomya Smart Language Translator Earbuds.
- VBESTLIFE Wireless Bluetooth 33 Language Translator.
- Google Pixel Buds.
- Timekettle M2 Language Translator Earbuds.
- ANFIER M6 Translator Earbuds.
- Vfeel Portable Voice Translator.
- Waverly Labs Ambassador.
- Supreme Tech Portable Language Translator.
These are the best available translating earbuds from our market research. Let’s do a little review of each of them.
Timekettle WT2 Plus Language Translator
The Timekettle WT2 plus language translator earbuds are one of the very best in the market. It is a real-time language translator that comes inside of a compact case with two pairs of earphones. This is one of those two-way translator earbuds I talked about earlier.
Like all other translating earbuds out there, you have to connect the bud to the app before using it. Apparently, the app stores the conversations. All you have to do is connect the bud to the app, give one pair to the person you want to converse with, and put on the other pair.
That’s it, very easy to use. This bud is one of the best because it has an accuracy of 95% translation and supports over forty languages with ninety-three different accents. It can also last up to five hours on one charge.
JoveTrans Lite Translator Earbuds
JoveTrans Lite Translator buds is another great earbud when it comes to language translation. This bud is driven by an AI (artificial intelligence) which makes it so fast and accurate. It is an amazing bud because it learns and improves the more you use it.
Apart from just language translation, this bud was built to also fit day-to-day usage as it has both phone and music compatibility. It currently supports over twenty-six languages with text translations. If you are a fan of noise cancellation, you should definitely try this out.
The sound quality is also another attractive feature of this bud with over seven hours of continuous listening time. Unlike most other translator buds, you can use this bud to listen to music, answer calls, and also do voice commands on your device.
Pomya Smart Language Translator Earbuds
Pomya smart language translating earbud is one that fits perfectly with a budget. This bud takes two hours to completely charge and offers over six hours of usage which is very attractive when conversing on the go.
Its structure is perfect when you have to put on the buds for hours and we also liked the lightweight design. Like some of the other earbuds, it also comes with a case that can be used to store the buds when not in use.
It’s a one-click control bud with low bass. There are over 33 languages available on this bud. IT also comes with a reliable 5.0 Bluetooth chip.
VBESTLIFE Wireless Bluetooth 33 Language Translator
This is another budget-friendly bud that weighs around 4.2 grams. One of the features we found most attractive is the highly sensitive analog microphone which is one of the basic things needed for picking up various accents.
Although it isn’t as fast and smooth as the Timekettle products, I can say this device is great and fits perfectly well with budgets. It’s a bit glitchy sometimes but in all aspects, it is a great product for the given price.
Google Pixel Buds
The Google pixel buds are one of the great options for android users. This bud even fits perfectly for Google pixel users. This bud works as a regular bud as well as a translator bud. It can be used to answer calls, play music or even operate the google assistant.
Despite this, where it really outshines other buds is the real-time translation. It is an amazing bud because you can either ask google translate to help you translate the language or launch the google translate app yourself.
It sorts of works like a walkie-talkie. You start by predefining two languages and the touch holds your pair of the bud while speaking your language and releases it when you are done. This is also one of the most accurate translation buds you would find on the market.
Timekettle M2 Language Translator Earbuds
This bud is the winner of the CES 2021 innovation award and is a step ahead of the WT2 model we talked about earlier. Other than just the live translation capability, this bud now supports HD (high definition) voice calls and music playback.
Every other thing is somewhat similar to the WT2 version with just minor changes and upgrades. However, one of the major upgrades is offline translation support for seven different languages. If you are traveling to an internet remote country, then this feature might be important for you.
This bud uses the QUALCOMM Bluetooth 5.0 for crystal clear audio when listening to music and answering calls. There are three translation modes available on this bud like the WT2 version.
ANFIER M6 Translator Earbuds
This is another one of the multi-function pair of earbuds. This bud currently recognizes seventy-one different languages with fifty-six different accents. The translation speed on this bud is what makes it so unique.
I would even come to say it has the faster translation speed I have ever seen in a translation bud. This bud can work like a walkie-talkie where you share buds and touch hold while speaking. It can also work in its speaker mode in which you only need one earbud and the speaker’s phone.
Vfeel Portable Voice Translator
Some say the Vfeel portable voice translator is the most powerful voice translator out there and to be honest, I can quite argue with them. This bud not only supports, face to face conversation but can also support voice calls.
It currently supports translation for forty different languages and ninety different accents. I would say the best feature of this device is the call translation mode which makes it a very efficient tool for conference calls with foreign business associates.
Waverly Labs Ambassador
The idea of sharing your earbud might not be appealing to everyone especially when the person you’re trying to converse with doesn’t have the best hygiene. Personally, I don’t even like the idea of sharing an earbud.
This is where the Waverly labs earbuds come in. This earbud works in tandem to capture speech up to eight feet away. This is an ideal earbud for group travels because you can easily pair up to four buds into a single earphone.
It can currently translate over forty different languages and forty-two different dialects. After a full charge, it can last just over six hours. What also makes it a great catch is its lightweight design.
Supreme Tech Portable Language Translator
This is a design-wise earbud that you may not find as appealing as the other earbuds on this list. The main reason is that it looks like an outdated Bluetooth device. As a translation device, this could be a live saver.
This bud provides real-time translation for over thirty languages. An amazing part of this bud it that it has five translation modes. These modes are face-to-face translation, group translation, direct mode, instant translation, and broadcast mode.
The face-to-face translation works similarly to the pixel buds we talked about earlier while the direct mode allows translations between two different supreme tech earpieces regardless of the speaker and receiver’s location. This makes it a great option for foreign calls.
