How do you know it is time to upgrade your devices? When the device is damaged by wear and tear or feels more cumbersome than when you first bought it, this is the signal to update to a better version. What kind of new gadgets are you looking to upgrade this year? If you think clear and immersive audio are a good investment, these quality budget-friendly new arrivals headphones, earphones and earbuds:

#1 JBL Live 460 Noise Cancelling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

JBL Live 460 Noise Cancelling Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

JBL, a powerhouse when it comes to top-grade audio products, brings to the table an advanced wire-free headset with Smart Ambient and Adaptive Noise Cancelling features. The JBL Live 460 is fuelled by the JBL Signature Sound, consisting of 40mm drivers, which can be found in several renowned stages and concert venues the world over. Now you can customise sounds and focus on audio settings that are important to you. These JBL wireless over-ear headphones are comfortable to wear and come with a microphone, letting you enjoy hands-free stereo calls at your convenience. For a smart, hands-free experience, access the JBL app and connect this device with your preferred AI voice technology (e.g. Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant or Apple's Siri). You can easily activate the voice assistant of your choice and get the help you need with just a tap on your earcup.

Thanks to the Ambient Aware technology, users are able to tread busy corners even as they chat with their headphones on. This feature lowers Talkthru music, increases ambient sounds and amplifies speech. Adaptive Noise Cancelling, on one hand, effectively reduces background noises so you can focus on your music or audio. Note that full access to Alexa is only possible with Android 6.0 or higher. Battery life drops to 40 hours from 50 when using Bluetooth, but not to worry because JBL Live 460 charges fast (10 minutes of charging already adds 4 hours to your battery life).

#2 Beats Studio3 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

Beats Studio3 Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

Another set of high-tech wireless headphones on the new arrivals list is the Beats Studio3. Design-wise, this device looks sleek and trendy, exuding a cool yet not overly casual vibe. Use the Beats Studio3 wire-free all day long. Battery life can last up to 22 hours while its Fast Fuel feature lets you enjoy 3 more hours of playback if you charge for 10 minutes after the battery drops low. Great for gaming, meetings, conferences and private calls, external noise is automatically blocked by the Pure Active Noise Cancelling (ANC) technology installed in this device. Turn off Pure ANC and set to low power mode to get 40 hours of battery life.

Experience audio clarity, range and emotion with the Beats Studio3's real-time audio calibration, sound optimisation and volume control settings. Incorporated with the Apple W1 chip, users can connect this headset with Apple devices for a full day of premium listening while staying productive. The soft, ergonomically designed over-ear cushions ensure a comfortable, flexible fit, regardless of head shape. This device is lightweight and durable, adaptable to any environment or activity.

#3 Samsung In-Ear Wired Earphones

Samsung In-Ear Wired Earphones

For users who prefer in-ear earphones, Samsung offers a new set that is just as good as headsets and other audio devices. Built with listening comfort and authentic sound in mind, the Samsung In-Ear Wired Earphones feature two-way speakers that offer rich, clear and balanced audio. Reinforced by a dedicated woofer and tweeter, this Samsung earphone set produces smooth, immersive sounds in high, mid and low registers.

Each earphone has a hybrid canal design, is around 3.5mm and "feels as good as it sounds." The earbuds fit nicely in your ears and remain comfortable even after hours of use. For the perfect fit, you have the option to choose an eartip. Because these earphones are lightweight, you can easily coil them around, place them in a designated container, and bring them anywhere.

#4 TCL SOCL500TWS Wireless Earbuds

TCL SOCL500TWS Wireless Earbuds

Though wire-free devices have the reputation of easily running out of battery, the TCL wireless earbuds break the mould with advanced and convenient features every user can enjoy. The device boasts comfortable earpieces, ergonomically sculpted to fit well with any ear shape. It also has tiny 5.8mm speaker drivers that produce clear and quality sounds. Users with an active lifestyle will find these wireless earbuds a useful companion as its IPX4 protection keeps it splash and sweat proof throughout the day.

For a wire-free device, the TCL buds offer up to 26 hours of play time. Capable of fast charging, you get 1 hour of play for every 15 minutes of charging time. Each earbud requires a total of 6.5 hours to be fully charged. Just place it inside its streamlined fast-charging case with a USB-C port. In the design department, the earbuds have a translucent exterior and quirky colour gradients that give the device a stylish finish.
