Their wide open soundstage and detailed, accurate sound treatment means they make any genre of music sound brilliant. For some, this means true freedom; for others, untethered true wireless means constant danger of losing their expensive audio kit down the drain – or terrible connections. We like how the faux leather, memory foam and happily un-creaky plastic combined to deliver a fit we found extremely comfortable, although we weren’t so keen on the way in which the ear pads reflect body heat right back: these phones get rather warm when you’ve been wearing them for a while. It’s hard to beat them when it comes to sound quality. With sophisticated noise cancellation, much-improved sound quality and stylish design, we found the PX7s a delight to test and think they could give any of the headphones on this list a run for their money. Moreover, these headphones come with two levels of noise cancelation to eliminate external noises and sounds.
During our testing, we found these noise-cancelling earbuds incredibly comfortable and well balanced, too, and while we expected their bulky form factor to be an issue they’re much more comfortable than they look. If the Sony WH-1000XM4s are the current king of noise-cancelling headphones, the Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 are next in line for the throne. The battery is decent for cheap noise-cancelling headphones, with 15 hours of playback over Bluetooth. Penggunaan Headphone dan Headset pun sama-sama dikenakan di atas kepala dan memiliki rumah driver yang lebih besar menutupi seluruh telinga (over ear). Both headphones are priced the same ($599 / £589 / AU$1,159), so you won’t find a deal picking up one over the other. That’s what we found with the JBL Live 650BTNC when we reviewed them – and their successors are the JBL Tune 750BTNC, which are both high-spec and well priced. Everyone now mimicks them. But for everyone else, it’s mostly be down to personal preference.
Everyone has an outer sleeve covering an inner box. The latter, at least, has changed now – thanks to advances in Bluetooth technology like aptX HD, the best true wireless earbuds have never sounded better. Are wired headphones better than wireless? While most of the audiophile headphones on our list are comfortable, you can pick the one that suits your comfort and fit requirements the best. This is the moment where I worry for a second that the new pair might not fit on my stupidly large head. When we first reviewed the original Lypertek PurePlay Z3 true wireless earbuds (then known as the Lypertek Tevi), we were blown away. NuraLoop has boiled down everything good about the company’s first product, the Nuraphone, into a much more compact, rugged, and affordable package, and doesn’t lose much in the process. Thankfully, most of the compromises Sony has made with the WH-CH510 haven’t been too crucial – the lack of analog input mirrors, the loss of the 3.5mm port on most modern smartphones – and while the construction is a little plasticky they’re lightweight, portable and comfortable.
While Beyerdynamic may not be as well-known as its German sibling, Sennheiser, the audio company has a history of creating some of the best-sounding audio gear on the market. Your co-workers or fellow commuters won’t take a dislike to you either: these headphones don’t leak as badly as some over-ears do. You’ll only be able to hear some of the highest frequency sounds such as sirens, and even they’re muted to a large degree. They’re more than a match for headphones two or three times the price. While they won’t have the superb clarity, balance, and sense of space that their WH-1000XM4 siblings deliver, the sound these on-ear headphones produce is much better than you’d expect from their size and price. If you’re used to on-ear rather than over-ear, they’re mostly comfortable, too, which is an important consideration if you’re using them on your travels. We’ve included a number of different headphone types below, like in-ear, on-ear, over-ear, wireless and true wireless. You can completely fold it and store it inside the included carry-case. But there have been so many advances in audio tech in recent years, that with many of the best wireless headphones you’re unlikely to notice a difference.
