It feels like ages ago, but back in January there was a little tech event called the Consumer Electronics Show, also known as “CES.” During this event, TCL announced a slew of wireless earbuds and headphones. It’s taken a while, but these products are finally available for purchase on Amazon and the prices are very low. Expand the chart below to see a full side-by-side breakdown of all the models.

TCL MTRO200BT & MTRO200NC

We’ll start with the MTRO series, which comprises of two new on-ear headphones. Both models have built-in microphones, but the 200NC also features noise-cancelation. The design of the two headphones are essentially identical and they’re available in the same four color options. Noise cancelation is the main differentiator and it shows in the price. The MTRO200BT costs just $39.99 and it’s available now, while the MTRO200NC is $79.99 and will be available June 5th.
