Most people listen to their music through headphones today – so you want to make sure you’re getting the best pair you can. We test headphones of all kinds, ranging from true wireless earbuds to premium wired over-ear headphones, so no matter what style you prefer, or what your budget is, you can find something that’ll help you enjoy your music more.
True wireless earbuds are the most popular kind today, especially Apple’s AirPods, because they’re just so convenient and small – there’s no harm in taking them everywhere. And these days they come with great features such as active noise cancellation at cheaper and cheaper prices – while at the high-end, they keep taking big leaps in audio quality.
The classic style of headphone, meanwhile, keeps getting smarter, with more wireless models including app support so you can tweak their features, and customize the sound to exactly what you prefer.
