Today is the age of wireless. No more do you have to be tied down (see what we did there?) by wired headphones. Of course, we always encourage music enthusiasts to have the best and that’s why we’ve prepared this list. From sound personalisation to noise cancellation, here are the best wireless headphones you can get.
The Aventho Wireless is the fruit of years of R&D by German audio giant, Beyerdynamic. The metal build and soft ear cushions make this supremely comfortable so that you can sit back and enjoy gorgeous audio.
Customise your sound to your preference with the MIY App. With the app, you can also track your daily listening habits, adjust the sensitivity of the touchpad controls, create your very own sound profile and lots more! This should hardly be surprising since the brand has partnered with Mimi Hearing Technologies, a specialist known world-over for its sound personalisation.
In terms of sound, you get a powerful bass, lifelike and detailed mids as well as sibilance-free highs. Qualcomm aptX HD, Bluetooth v4.2 and Tesla technologies ensure that there is no loss in audio resolution and the huge battery life lets you listen to your Aventho Wireless for 30 hours straight!
The Bowers and Wilkins PX has intuitive sensors that can tell when you're wearing the headphone and when you’re not. If you lift an earcup or hang it around your neck, the music will automatically pause (Cool right?).
The PX is crafted from premium materials. The earcups are elliptical and covered in ballistic nylon. Soft leather makes it super-comfy. The drivers give you a deep heavy bass, slightly recessed mids and lifelike vocals. You can listen to your favourite songs for a good 22 hours (with noise cancelling on).
This headphone comes with 3 noise filters to attenuate external noise. With the first filter i.e. Flight, you can block out noise entirely. The second filter, City, reduces external sound so that you can enjoy music while staying aware of your surroundings. The Office filter cancels out all background sound, but if there is anyone talking to you or a discussion nearby, you will be able to hear it.
The Studio 3 Wireless has been created to be comfy and look good. Just like most of its brethren, this headphone also features the Beats logo and comes in a variety of cool colours. This headphone features an Adaptive Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology so that you get only the sound, no noise.
Bass. Epic Bass. That’s how that sound of this headphone can be described as. While the lower frequencies tend to overpower the mids and highs, this is the wireless headset for all bass lovers.
The headphone comes with Apple’s W1 Chip. Connecting to any iOS device is lightning fast. It also gives you a great sound for a good 22 hours. The fast-charging feature gives you 3 hours of battery life after charging for a mere 10 minutes.
Nothing says portable luxurious audio than Master & Dynamic’s headphones. Everything about these headphones scream of premium materials and expert craftsmanship. The entire headphone is made of strong metal while headband and earpads have heavy-grain soft lambskin leather.
These headphones certainly sound as good as they look. The bass has depth and is tight, the mids sound rich while the highs are a little bright but without any sibilance. AptX lets you listen to your favourite songs for a good 16 hours.
This headphone gives you the true freedom of wireless due to the generous 50-foot range. The rotating earcups fold flat so travelling is super easy. All in all, no matter what; These headphones are certainly going to grab eyeballs.
The Sony WH1000XM2 has an unassuming simple design that covers some of the best audio technology available at its price. With Bluetooth, LDAC and aptX HD you can get Hi-Res audio. Digital Sound Enhancement Engine HX (DSEE HX™) restores audio lost in transmission so that you can listen to only the best.
The Adaptive Sound Control lets you adjust the noise cancellation level. So whether you want to entirely cancel out external sound or just reduce noise while still being able to hear your surroundings, you can do it all.
With its battery life of 30 hours (with NC on), you can listen to deep, punchy bass, natural-sounding mids and crystal-clear highs. You can control all your music settings at the touch of a button with the Sony Headphones Connect App.
The Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless lets you enjoy your music at the touch of a button. Apart from Bluetooth v4.0, it also comes with an NFC chip. What’s special about this you ask? Well, instead of going through that tedious process of setting up Bluetooth, simply press a button and it’s connected—just like magic!
If you’ve heard any of its brothers in the Momentum series, you will recognize the sound in this over-ear. For those who haven’t, well, an uncontrollable bass with pronounced highs and enjoyable mids is how you can describe its sound.
Active Noise Cancellation ensures that nothing comes between you and your music while aptX gives you CD-quality audio. The Momentum 2.0 Wireless gives you a 22-hour battery life after charging for a mere 3 hours.
The V-MODA Crossfade 2 Wireless is truly built like a tank. It has been built entirely from lightweight but tough metal. The Steelflex headband is able to bend completely flat while the Cliqfold hinge can also take a fair amount of abuse. It also lets the Crossfade 2 Wireless fold inwards to become portable.
The shields on this headphone not only come in a variety of colours but can also be customised to showcase your style. You can use free laser engraving to show-off your artwork, initials and more.
Listen to a 3D soundstage for a good 14 hours. The Rose Gold variant supports aptX (unlike the black and white variants) for a better sound quality. The bass is deep and punchy while the mids sound lush and the vocals are a pleasure to listen to. The highs have just the right amount of sparkle though they tend to roll off easily.
So here you go. These are the best wireless headphones you can get. Another headphone that may make it to this list can be the upcoming Audeze Mobius (due to all the cool specs we’ve heard about). Will it? We will know for sure only after trying.
