A great pair of neckband headphones should look good, be relatively comfortable, and sound great - which is exactly why we've chosen the V-Moda Forza Metallo Wireless headphones as our top pick.
Headphones are getting better and better. Gone are the days when getting good private audio meant having to buy bulky and expensive over-ear headphones. These days, in-ear headphones sound pretty great - and they're much more convenient, too. Neckband-style headphones help give in-ear headphones a better battery life, more convenient controls, and more.
Of course, there are a ton of neckband headphones available for purchase, and they're not all created equal. Because of that, it can be hard to figure out which neckband headphones are right for your needs. When buying headphones, there are a number of things to keep in mind. For starters, you'll want to think about the features you want.
Most neckband headphones have a microphone built in to them for things like phone calls, but you'll also want to think about whether or not you want water-resistance, in case you sweat a lot or get caught in the rain, as well as the connectivity standard you want to use. Pretty much all neckband headphones connect through Bluetooth, but you should lok for the latest standard: Bluetooth 5.0.
It's also worth considering how long of a battery life you want. One of the advantages of all that extra room around the neck is that you can include a larger battery - and as a result, most neckband headphones offer at least 10 hours of use.
