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.

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.

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...
