- Bluetooth headphones get rid of those annoying wires and increase convenience so you can take your music with you anywhere.
- Of all the wireless headphones we've tested, the Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless over-ear headphones are the best ones you can buy, and they sound amazing.
Headphones are evolving. When Apple first announced the iPhone 7, which dropped the headphone jack in favor of a wireless connection, many were more than a little frustrated. Traditionally speaking, wired headphones have been of a higher quality, both sound-wise and when it comes to reliability. Now, however, that's changing, and the gap in sound quality is closing.If you've decided you want to ditch those annoying wires in favor of wireless headphones, there are a number of things to consider. The first thing you'll need to decide is what form-factor you prefer. Do you want over-ear headphones, on-ear headphones, or in-ear headphones? Over-ear headphones generally sound better and are more comfortable, while in-ears are far more portable, and on-ear headphones attempt to strike a balance between those two.
You'll also want to consider whether you want noise-cancellation, which helps cut out the background noise while you're listening. Last but not least, you'll want to think about your budget. These days, there are great Bluetooth headphones across most price ranges, but as is the case with most things, the more you have to spend, the better headphones you'll get.
We've been testing as many wireless Bluetooth headphones as we can get our hands on over the past few years, and we've put together this list of the best wireless headphones we've tested. We'll continue to add to this list as we test more models and different types of wireless headphones. You can also check out all the other types of headphones we recommend in the last slide.
