Sony WH-1000XM2

The Sony WH-1000XM2 improves upon the original flagship headphones. They sound great, deftly wield noise cancellation technology and cost just as much as a pair of Bose QC35s. They might have a slightly shorter battery life than the QC35, but the...

Bose QuietComfort 35 II

The Bose QC35 II shows why the company is so popular amongst travelers with class-leading noise cancellation and balanced sound. They may not be the most detailed or exciting-sounding headphones but they will sound great to most listeners. The addition...

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...

For its first attempt at noise cancelling headphones Bowers & Wilkins has done an amazing job. By incorporating elements of the outstanding P9 Signature headphones in a compact and portable design, the PX are the best sounding wireless headphones we’ve...

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...

Sony WF-1000X

With more than capable noise-cancellation, Sony has created a unique take on the true wireless form factor that's proving increasingly popular. It might be a little bulky, but the noise-cancellation goes some way to mitigating this problem, and battery...

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.

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...

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.
