Sony MDR-1000X

Sony's aim with the MDR-1000X is to take down market leader Bose. And with a clever application of technology Sony has achieved wonderful results, which easily put them above and beyond the Bose QuietComfort 35, if you're ok with the slightly larger...

Bose QuietComfort 35

As QC15 users for many years we were really looking forward to a Bluetooth version and we're not disappointed by the QC35s. They are as keen when it comes to audio playback and excellent in their active noise-cancellation, and all without the wires.

Apple AirPods

There’s lots to like about the AirPods including their sound quality, and how seamlessly they pair with your device, but at the end of the day their lack of in-line remote means that there are easier headphones to use while out and about, and Siri...

Focal Listen

The Focal Listen Wireless offer phenomenal sound but little else. Without multipoint Bluetooth, active noise cancellation or auto play/pause these headphones feel antiquated when compared to the competition.

Plantronics BackBeat PRO 2

The Plantronics BackBeat Pro 2 offer insane battery life, great sound quality and good active noise cancellation for the price. It may not offer the best noise cancellation in the segment but they’re an undeniably good value for what you’re getting.

Jabra Elite Sport

An excellent set of AirPod rivals in many ways, and massively powerful in terms of the amount of exercising you can do. A touch too expensive perhaps (a lower price and they'd be a must-have), and the heart rate monitoring could be more accurate, but...

Bowers & Wilkins P7 Wireless

To be honest, while the P5 Wireless headphones were very well received last year, we have been secretly pining for these for a while. They suit the current trend of wire-free connectivity without any compromise in audio performance whatsoever.

Beats by Dr. Dre PowerBeats3 Wireless

Solidly built and with a great battery life, the PowerBeats 3 get a lot of things right - but at this price point they need to do a little more than this to make them a worthwhile purchase. They're acceptable all-rounders, but there are cheaper...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H9

The B&O Beoplay H9 are luxury headphones that miss some key marks. Materials, battery life and active noise cancellation are great, but their overwhelming bass, lack of features and high price make them hard to recommend.

Sennheiser PXC 550 Wireless

The Sennheiser PXC 550s manage to achieve that full-bodied Sennheiser sound we've come to expect, but some of their other features leave a little to be desired. The PXC 550's greatest strength is their sound. Other wireless noise-cancelling headphones...
