I need cordless earpieces/headphones for my S8plus. Just for phone calls, I don't really listen to music.


I don't want the regular ones that are one ear only, I want both ears. I've seen someone wearing small white ones that I believe are Apple, can I use these on Android?


Any other suggestions or recommendations please? Maybe they are called "in ear earbuds"

Thanks in advance

A quick google says the Apple Airpods can be used for audio output on Android devices but there may be comparability issues for the mic.  Personally I don't have any experience with the Airpods.




If you scroll through this list you'll see some of the airpod style earphones.  I've tried the Sony 1000X and while the noise cancellation is great I didn't like the noise quality. Also, a lot of those airpod style seem to have quite limited battery life.


My daily driver (i.e 1-4 hours a day on the phone) are the Bose QC30 which is the neckband style.  10 hours of actual use battery life, great sound and noise cancellation.  It's nice to also be able to remove the ear phones from the ear and not worry about where they've gone.

I've personally had good experiences with Plantronics Backbeat. I've got a couple of models, old 903+ and bbfit. They have a band behind your head.
