A few years ago, buying a pair of wireless headphones might have been a bad decision. But as technology has advanced, connectivity over Bluetooth has become more reliable.
Thanks to advancements in Bluetooth (with technologies like aptX), the latest Bluetooth headphones on the market will stay connected to your device and they will sound just as good as your wired headphones
There are a few downsides. Wireless headphones will cost more than their wired model counterparts and they do need to be charged. But the freedom of movement makes the listening process more enjoyable.
Whatever your reason for choosing a set of Bluetooth headphones, we’re here to help you pick out the best, regardless of your budget.
Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones WH1000XM3
These are a fantastic pair of Bluetooth headphones, and arguable the best Bluetooth headphones available on the market. The WH1000XM3 offers brilliant noise-cancellation, audio quality, all packed in a beautiful design. The battery life is strong (30+ hours) and it functions well during phone calls.
Sony WH-1000XM4 has just been announced for 2020, which has a rumored retail price of $349.99, so it might be worth waiting.
Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
This model is the latest wireless headphones from Bose and they’ve managed to make some decent improvements over the QuietComfort 35 II (which are still great). The noise cancellation is excellent and the sound is rich. The only real downfall is the battery life (20 hours total) and price in comparison to the WH1000XM3 above.
The ATH-M50xBTs are similar to the ATH-M50x Headphones, one of the most popular DJ headphones available. The ATH-M50xBTs is also intended for the audiophile, with 45mm drivers and a frequency response range of 15-28,00Hz. These wireless headphones definitely match up to their wired counterparts.

These Sennheiser headphones offer great sound quality and look stylish while at it. There’s rich bass and a clear, detailed mid-range.
AKG N60NC Wireless Headphones
The AKG N60 NC are fantastic noise-cancelling headphones with a clean, well-balanced sound that had tight bass. These headphones also come with a 51-inch cord, meaning you get the best of both worlds with wired headphones. The battery life on this unit is decent too.
Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones WHCH700N
These budget friendly headphones from Sony are a fantastic choice. It’s lightweight and has great battery life. The sound was well-balanced throughout but the noise cancelling was average. If you’re a casual listener, these still might be a good choice.
Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Headphones
