Technology has moved on considerably over the last few years. Not too long ago we would not make too much of a case for wireless headphones as the technology wasn’t quite there yet. There were issues with connectivity over Bluetooth and then it was the actual surround quality of the audio. Batteries were nowhere near what you would expect and it made them impractical. However, today things are completely different and wireless headphones are living a sort of renaissance.
Thanks to advancements in Bluetooth (thanks, aptX), the latest batch of wireless headphones not only stay connected in every situation, but they sound just as good as they’re wired counterparts to boot. There are over-ear headphones, often with noise-cancelling thrown in for good measure, with major brands including Bose, Sennheiser and Sony leading the way.
There is no doubt that they are pricier than a traditional wired model, but wireless headphones give you much greater freedom of movement, making them perfect for working out at the gym, going out for a run or a great companion for phones like the iPhone X and Google Pixel 2 that simply lack a 3.5mm aux port to connect with.
Whatever your reason for upgrading, we’re here to help you pick out the best headphones, regardless of your budget. What you’ll find below are the top headphones we’ve reviewed with a mix of in-ear, over-ear and on-ear headphones, plus some with neat features like noise-cancellation. Simply put, you will get amazing sound quality and enjoying music in ways you have never experienced before.
