Sony MDR-1000X

If you can't stand the hype of Bose or own a Sony handheld that supports Hi-Res Audio, the MDR-1000X are a stellar pair of headphones.

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.

The AKG N60NC Wireless offers a surprisingly competent combination of excellent sound quality and noise cancellation. The headphones are well designed and built, and are much better looking than their competitors. All while sitting at a much cheaper...

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 Solo3 Wireless

Smart wireless headphones that make some real techy improvements, but the sound unfortunately lags behind. The Beats Solo 3 Wireless make huge improvements in some areas, and change little in others. Top on its list of achievements are class-leading...

Sony MDR-XB950B1

Sony's 'extra bass' headphones range grows with every year and this addition, the MDR-XB950B1, is a large wireless over-ear pair. It's designed for maximum comfort while you're getting your ears rumbled by all that bass. But does the reality live up to...

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.

The Jaybird X3 are an excellent pair of wireless in-ears for everyday use and workouts alike, with some forgivable shortcomings given their impressive affordability. This really is a fabulous pair of sports earphones on the whole, and the flaws we’ve...

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...

Bang & Olufsen BeoPlay H4

With a sound signature that's consciously going after the bass-lovers out there, we weren't expecting to like the sound of the BeoPlay H4 headphones as much as we did. Certainly it's a sound that suits some genres more than others, but otherwise this...

Turtle Beach Elite Pro

But those headsets just aren’t as comfortable to use, nor as well engineered for the long stints and tournament-style play that these are. All in all, if it’s the pro option you’re after, you shouldn’t look much further than these.
