The JLab Audio JBuds Air Truly Wireless are alright for mixed-use. They're fairly comfortable, portable, and stable. They don't reduce low noise like bus or plane engines by much, but they do a better job of cutting chatter. However, these earbuds aren't the best for neutral listening as they have overemphasized bass and uneven treble. They also aren't very suitable for wireless gaming as they have high latency.
