It’s amazing the difference good headphones make. For anyone who has tried a high-quality, noise-cancelling pair of headphones, you know there is just no going back. If you are in the market for new headgear to up your music-listening game, check out this list of the top 10 headphones available this year.
Jabra Elite 65T
For wireless earbuds, the Jabra Elite 65T is the best on the market. Much cheaper too than high-end headphones, these little buds pack a punch in terms of sound quality.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II
The name says it all: for quiet and comfort, you cannot do better than these Bose headphones. They are wireless as well, so noisy commutes will be transformed into a time of quiet and relaxation.
Anker Soundcore Liberty Air
These wireless earbuds are light and comfortable and offer remarkably good sound quality while sporting a sleek, minimalistic design. If affordability and great quality are your main concerns, these are the headphones for you.
V-Moda Crossfade 2 Wireless
These stylish headphones are the epitome of high-res wireless listening. One downfall is that they become a bit heavy as you wear them, but if you can stand a little neck workout or find a place to rest your head, we promise the sound quality is sure to impress.
This could very well be the comfiest in-ear headphones you will ever try. They also have great iOS integration, so they will pair easily with any of your Apple products. If that isn’t enough, the new Quick Charge feature also means no more music-less commutes because you forgot to charge your earphones overnight; just five minutes of charging time gives you up to two hours of listening time.
With superior noise cancellation, sound quality and 30 hours of battery life, these headphones come out on top. Sony has perfected not only peripheral noise cancellation, but also sound quality, playback and noise definition.
Bowers and Wilkins 39
For a great balance between bass, mids and treble, give these headphones a try. They do not leave out on comfort either, providing extra room in the earpads. If you are looking for extra features you will not find them here, but if you want a set of headphones that will simply play you some beautiful music, these are a great pick.
Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless
As far as wireless headphones go, Beyerdynamic Amiron is hands down the best option. Their sound quality is as good as any wired headphones while the build might just be better.
These headphones are a luxury purchase, with a price tag marking them at $3,000. Built out of metal and brown leather and affording premium sound quality and comfort, the price may just make sense. They do not have great portability, but at that price would you want to take them out of the house anyway?
Monoprice Monolith M1060
At around $300, these headphones give you all the quality of a much more expensive pair of headphones while being at the relatively cheaper end. Perhaps not cheap, but worth the value. The sound clarity is one of its top features and makes it worth the price to some reviewers.
