Regardless of your budget, this headsets guide below features the latest wireless headphone technology with attributes such as noise-cancellation, sound quality, and durability to help you shop with confidence. But before you make the purchase let's discuss four critical features of a quality wireless headset.


Factors to Consider When Buying Wireless Headphones

What is the best wireless Bluetooth headphone? please take note on,

  • Noise-Cancelling

A good pair of wireless headphones should offer you with noise-canceling technology that reduces annoying ambient sounds by using noise-control. The ANC feature is especially beneficial for frequent travelers who want to mind their own business and block-out noise from traffic, airplane engines, factory machinery or an air-conditioner hum. The ANC makes it possible for you to sleep or listen to your audio content without raising the volume excessively.

  • Product Compatibility

In most cases, the wireless headphone you're about to purchase should work with most devices. The headset should connect easily while the range should offer 30 feet up to 200 feet from the base. The signal stability should give clear audio output even in a signal polluted surrounding so that you can enjoy your music.

  • Long Battery Life

Though wireless headphones are convenient, they can disappoint you if the battery runs out in the middle of your listening session. Advances in circuit miniaturization and battery life ensure that you get between 20 to 30 hours of battery life.

  • Sound Quality

Sound quality is a crucial factor to consider before committing to a pair of headsets. The audio content produced by the wireless headphone should be crisp, precise, well balanced and rich. Today, many wireless headphones feature APTX technology which compresses audio files.

  • Microphone

Some over-ear cans come with an inbuilt mic feature that allows you to listen to your listen to music at the same time answer phone calls. The receiver comes attached to some headsets that enable you to make hands-free calls when connected to your phone.

  • Comfort and Size

Most people focus on the support and size of a headphone mainly for two reasons – comfort and convenience. The reason why people spend hours with headphones and they don't just want to look good but want functionality.

  • Additional features

There are other features that you need to consider to make the best out of your purchase include; portability, controls (most modern over-ears have touch controls on the earpieces), durability and lightweight. Most companies have revolutionized headphones.

With advanced features, fantastic sound quality, high quality and excellent noise cancellation mean that top premium headsets in the market today come at a high premium. That said, let's now see what the market has to offer.


Top 10 Wireless Headphones in 2020

<Best-sounding wireless headsets>

beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless High-End Stereo Headphone

Why we like it: The Beyerdynamic Amiron wireless headphones feature optimum sound quality thanks to Tesla technology making them the best-sounding headsets you can buy. The music is spacious and dynamic and adapts to your hearing profile offering you deep basses, full natural mids, and clear highs.

  • Performance

As far as performance is concerned, Amiron wireless headphones feature high level detailed clear sound with wide soundstage and dynamics. Though it may not wow you with big bass, you'll appreciate the low decent bass impact these headsets possess.

These audiophile cans have been designed to give the listener the exact content of the audio they're listening without many exaggerations on the acoustics making them the best for playback music for long hours.

  • Comfort

The headsets feature a circumaural design with an iconic Beyer look meaning they are huge but extremely comfortable cupping the ear for a plush feel. The build quality is excellent that will offer years of durability while the flawless artistry features a soft headband made from Alcantara.

The uncompromisingly perfect fit offered by the Beyerdynamic cans provides a stable contact pressure without spending thousands of dollars for a top of the line gear. That said, these cans are not the lightest in the market in comparison to the Bose QC35 II model.

  • Compatibility

Unlike Apple Airpods, the Beyerdynamic headsets feature great Bluetooth transmission fitted with perfect codecs that support: SBC, Qualcomm aptX HD, Apple AAC – and aptX LL offering you smooth, articulate and punchy audio transmission and no delay.

  • Battery life

This wireless headphone pair has a long battery life rated at an impressive 30 hours. The large touchpad on the right ear cup houses a power button and the USB-C charging port that charges up the headphones relatively quickly. You can expect 25 hours of constant usage at 50-70% volume

  • Verdict

The Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless is in a class of their own featuring the best-sounding wireless headphones we've heard so far. Though they're a high dollar product, the top-notch articulate details that offer you a damn smooth tremble, a punchy, sleek and ergonomic sound are worth the value.

beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless Headphone

Pros

  • User replaceable ear pads
  • Detailed, dynamic, spacious sound
  • Exceptional comfort
  • Excellent build quality
  • Sounds just as good as wired

Cons

  • Quite stiff out of the box and needs time to be broken into
  • Their massive size doesn't make them the best for traveling
  • Average noise isolation making them best for around the office or home
  • Pricey but totally worth it

<Best Wireless Noise-canceling Headphones>

Bose QuietComfort 35 II Wireless Bluetooth Headphones

Why we like it: The Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) wireless noise-canceling headphone is the first ever headset to incorporate a dedicated hands-free Google Assistant button just like Alexa Voice assistant where you can issue commands, add reminders and a myriad of other questions making it a compatible smart device. Aside from the new button, this version has retained all the other features of its predecessor QC35.

  • Performance

This premium headphone from the Bose line features a world-class noise cancellation technology that drowns out the rumbles of traffic and other noise that makes you feel like you've walked into a quiet room after being into a busy street.

Not only do they provide excellent noise- cancellation, these wireless headphones also feature a relatively neutral slight mid-bass and above the average soundstage. The resolution is not that great either, but the sound quality is somewhat soft while the tonal balance is reasonably stable.

  • Comfort

This noise-canceling and feature-packed wireless headsets feature a simple, versatile look and a neutral design available in black or silver color. Though they don't come in ornate sculpted elements or fancy textures, the QC35 II is solid with a sturdy hard carry case but if you're a fan of elegance perhaps Sennheiser Momentum 2.0 Wireless would be a perfect choice.

However, you can't compromise the comfort that comes with the QC35 II especially if you fly long-haul frequently or travel long distances on the train. Bose is lighter as compared to Sony WH-1000Xm2 or the Plantronics Backbeat Pro, though your ears could feel warm an hour after wearing them out of the box.

  • Battery life

Unlike the Amiron wireless, the QC35 II may have a slightly shorter battery life with wireless playback being 20 hours or up to 40 hours when wired. If the battery runs out, you can use your device in a passive mode which sounds good but not great then you can recharge when you need to.

Besides, the battery is not removable, so always remember to carry a micro USB charging cable just in case.

  • Value

QC35 II is not that necessarily cheap. Of course, most people expect that a high-value product should be full feature-packed with top-notch sound quality and world-class noise cancellation. Unfortunately, this is not the case with the QC35 II as Sony WH-1000XM2 headphones are designed to beat this competition with feature-rich attributes at a lower cost.

bose quietcomfort noise cancelling headphones

  • Verdict

If you travel long distances in noisy environments and want excellent noise cancellation headphones with balanced sound, lightweight and comfort, we would advise you go for Bose QuietComfort 35 series. The cans sound a tad better with a clean, crisp and more full sound than Sony WH-1000Xm2. Hands down, Bose QC35 II, is the best noise canceling headphone in the market.

Pros

  • Top-of-the-line active noise canceling
  • Fantastic sound quality
  • Lightweight and comfortable
  • The Google assistant is a high integration
  • Excellent battery life

Cons

  • Micro USB
  • No instant mute feature

<Cost-effective Wireless Noise Cancelling Headphones>

Sennheiser Bluetooth Wireless Headphones

Why we like it: The Sennheiser HD 4.50 wireless is a much-loved and respected headphone that is designed explicitly for noise-canceling. The sets feature a fully enclosed excellent design that is reasonably comfortable, sounds excellent and come just under $200.

This is a reasonable price for one of the best noise-canceling wireless headphones in comparison to competitors like Bose and Amiron.

  • Performance

To get the best performance from Sennheiser HD 4.50 BTNCs, you need to use them in noisy environments. The NoiseGard active noise cancellation gets rid of ambient sound for a comfortable and more relaxed listening experience. On the other hand, the headsets feature exceptional sound quality with a precise well-rounded stereo sound perhaps not as crisp as the Beyerdynamic Amiron wireless.

The bass on this headset is generally clean and dynamic with neutral mids and highs for a powerful, detailed and well-balanced sound making your listening sessions a pure joy.

  • Comfort

The 4.50 BTNCs delivers a far better-value package than Bose with excellent wearing comfort. The travel-friendly headsets are exceptionally lightweight meaning they can be worn around the neck easily when waiting on airport ques. Also, they feature narrow-cushioned ear cups that block out ambient sounds even on a commuter train or a busy street for comfort.

There's a relatively high-quality foam that's featured around the ear cups although we would like to see more foam under the headband for increased comfort. Although Sennheiser has done a pretty good job on noise cancellation, the trade-off is that they get warm.

  • Battery life

Though the price of the 4.50 BTNCs is entirely within most people's reach, we saw a limitation with the battery life. These wireless headphones boast an impressive 20 hours of battery life. However, this is not at par with Bose or Amiron wireless.

  • Verdict

The 4.50 BTNCs is the ideal headphone for the person who prefers to travel light. Also, the cans feature nice, well-rounded stereo with an active noise-canceling feature delivering a better-value package for the money. Besides, they're lightweight and include a softer travel pouch than Bose and Amiron headphones.

Pros

  • Great noise-canceling
  • Travel-friendly design
  • Affordable
  • Easy-to-use controls
  • Excellent audio quality

Cons

  • We wish the travel case were a little more sturdy
  • The snug-fitting ear cups lack ventilation

<Best Metal Headphones – military-level durability>

V-MODA Crossfade 2 Over-Ear Wireless Headphone

Why we like it: The V-Moda Crossfade II wireless has an excellent build with punchy and somewhat elevated bass. The cushions and Steelflex headband features create natural noise isolation and an immersive 3D soundstage. These headsets sport military-level durability essential for gaming and professional use.

  • Performance

The sound profile is warm and punchy with lush mids and well-presented highs that are kept under control even in high volumes offering a wide-sound for a headphone in its category. However, they lack the resolution of an audiophile headphone and miss certain qualities that would amplify the experience of listening to contemporary music and EDM, for example. The reasonable bass levels lack heaviness that would genuinely sound great for such music.

Additionally, the headsets don't include aptX support in the black and white models which would make a big difference in sound quality. Besides, the quality changes when the headphones switch to Bluetooth mode. V-Moda didn't also feature play/pause, ANC or an app control but, the headphone is not bad at all.

  • Comfort

While you won't find features like Active Noise Cancellation like in the Sennheiser HD 4.50 or Bose or Amiran wireless, the Crossfade II headphones feature a sizable memory foam cushions for unparalleled supple comfort. They also do a great job in passive noise isolation to cut off ambient noise from jet engines or traffic.

The collapsible hinge mechanism folds the headphones in a compact and sturdy exoskeleton case. Crossfade II wireless headphones are available in some fan-favorite rich colors.

  • Battery life

The Crossfade II wireless feature 14+ hours of playback at moderate volume. Even after switching between wired and wireless mode the battery handles quite well. V-Moda features a fast charge on this headphone which can quickly give you four hours of playback after 30 minutes of charging.

  • Durability

The Crossfade II wireless features military-level durability with a steel frame and vegan leather cover with user-adjustable clamping force for superior strength and sturdiness making the headphone durable against high/low temperatures, salt, and UV exposure.

Furthermore, the form-fitting exoskeleton casing is small and compact that makes transportation easier.

  • Verdict

The V-Moda Crossfade II wireless feature a premium feel from top to bottom and come in a clean-sleek design for people looking for fashionable headphones that sound great. They come in a bold-styling, a punchy sound quality, and a fun leather-metal signature.

Pros

  • Extremely durable
  • Fun, punchy sound
  • Customizable shields
  • Comfortable with a plush feel
  • Sturdy case

Cons

  • The soundstage is flat (like everything is on an equal level)
  • No Active Noise Cancellation
  • The rose-gold model has Aptx

<Best Bluetooth headphone for travelers with extra battery life>

Sony Noise Cancelling Headphones

Why we like it: Just like Bose QC35 II, Sony's WH1000XM2 features a Google voice assistant and an easy touch on the right earphone to activate it. Besides, these headphones sound great with an active noise canceling that matches Bose QC35. The battery life is better than the previous version giving the frequent traveler extra battery life.

  • Performance

Sony's WH1000XM2 offers serious competition to the Bose QC35 II regarding performance and feature set. Concerning noise canceling and noise isolation, the WH1000XM2 excels in this area featuring Hi-Res audio playback over Bluetooth that reduces distortion and allows you to enjoy an original recording of music.

The sound is excellent for a Bluetooth headphone with crystal clear highs, straightforward mid-tones, and a real weighty bass something that you won't find in noise-canceling headphones like Bose QC35 II, albeit with a lower price.

  • Comfort

While its top contender Bose QC35 II is lighter and more comfortable to wear, Sony WH1000XM2 is a well-built pair of cans. It features a metal bridge with padded bottom, faux leather ear cups that are comfortable and cool making them an excellent choice for the business-class customer.

The overall design is noteworthy with a new textured finish on the ear cups and simple to use touch controls located on their right ear cup to enable you to adjust the volume, control playback and also answer calls. One extra feature that is also notable is the way you can muffle music by holding either of your hands over your headphones' right ear cup to maybe take an order on a plane or listen for announcements over train stations PA system. If you have a device that supports LDAC, you'll enjoy the experience better than a headphone that promotes Aptx.

  • Battery life

Slightly longer battery life than the QC35 but with 30 hours of playback time which is excellent. Sony WH1000XM2 also features quick charge of 10 minutes that gives you 70 more minutes of play.

  • Touch-capacitive controls

The WH1000XM2 uses touch controls exclusively. On its left ear cup, there is the Power/Bluetooth button and another button to set the ambient mode on/off. The rest of the functions like forwarding, pausing turning the volume down requires swiping. The touch controls can be a limitation especially to people who are unfamiliar with touch controls.

Verdict: The WH1000XM2 is a good pick for the business-class people with great audio sound performance. The headphone is on a class of its own with excellent noise canceling feature and outstanding sound quality a combination that you won't find in the Bose QC35 II. The cans are a good value for money if you are looking for a feature-packed headphone with a quick access Google assistant button which is a top pick feature in premium wireless ANC headphones.

Pros

  • Superb ANC feature
  • Excellent sounding
  • Comfortable for long wear
  • Hard-shell case
  • Beautiful nondescript design

Cons

  • The battery is not re-placable
  • The hinges are fragile

<Best Smart Bluetooth headphone>

Bowers & Wilkins PX Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones

Why we like it: Bowers and Wilkins's wireless headphones are new entrants into the ANC arena of cans with an impressive feature-packed over-ears. The headphones feature a sturdy build quality, an incredible battery life, an excellent design, but don't offer much when it comes to sound quality and noise canceling for the price range.

  • Performance

When it comes to combining top-notch with ANC, PX can't beat the competition that Bose QC35 and Sony WH1000XM2 offer. However, Bowers and Wilkins's headphones feature a warm sound signature than QC 35. While Bose and Sony models sit atop the pile of noise-canceling cans with fantastic sound, the PX offer better looks something that many would be willing to pay.

The PX features warm, surround sound with a prominent mid-range response, detailed clean highs, but the bass is muddy though the tonal balance is well detailed. As far as ANC is concerned, the PX wireless headphones cancel some noises out while leaving others. The sets do an excellent job in canceling noise on flights and noisy environments but not much on people's conversations.

  • Comfort

Supple leather and cold metal dominate the exterior of the B&W headphones. The set features a sleek texturing on the top of the headband and memory foam ear cups that fit the ears comfortably. The cans weigh 11.8 ounces as compared to Bose QC35 II which weighs 8 ounces.

The PX also features other user-friendly attributes such as a natural pairing process. Pressing the slider-cum-button on the edge of the right earpiece activates the pairing mode. B&W has also emphasized ease of controlling audio playback and a reliable Bluetooth connection.

  • Battery life

The headphones boast an incredible 22 hours of battery life active playback with active noise cancellation enabled. Moreover, the cans feature a remarkable six months standby mode – this is pretty impressive.

You can use the cans to run a myriad of activities, travel and remain with extra battery life after five days of heavy use on a medium volume for a single charge.

  • Build

The ANC is a top feature of anyone looking for a sturdy and durable active noise-canceling headphones. These over-ears with a soft gold finish mostly appeal to Apple fans. Built with a lightweight aluminum material that covers the outer ear cups and the top of the headband giving the cans a “ballistic nylon shell” look. The Px are reliable and seem to be more durable than those in its class like Bose QC35 and Sony's WH 1000X.

Verdict: The B&W PX headphones are a fantastic package that features an excellent build and stunning looks with a good sound quality a triumphant noise canceling feature best for people who work in offices or take frequent flights.

Pros

  • Incredible and battery life
  • Full, rich bass
  • Stunning, durable design
  • Great isolation
  • Three noise- cancellations modes

Cons

  • The headband is a bit lacking and needs more padding
  • Slightly bulky and cumbersome design
  • ANC is not very good

<Value for money: Good Headphones for students>

Plantronics Wireless Noise Cancelling Backbeat

Why we like it: The Plantronics Backbeat wireless features a stable battery life, good active noise cancellation and an excellent sound quality gunning the same space as the Bose QuietComfort 35 II and an undeniable good value for your money.

  • Performance

Features an impressive sound quality with rich bass, crisp highs and natural mid-tones offering a compelling package for travelers. The Backbeat Pro 2 provides a fun, slightly bass heavy sound for the audiophiles who would be pleased to know that using this headphone in wired mode suppresses the bass quite a bit. The highs are rolled off somewhat while the mids are more natural making the soundstage average.

It's surprising that the ANC feature works well even on wired mode which can save you extra battery life.

  • Comfort

Backbeat Pro 2 is lightweight with 544g, so they are not too heavy when you're out and about. Also, the faux-leather cushions are comfortable but can get sticky and wet if you use the headphones in the gym.

Unlike the sleek Boss QC35, the Backbeat Pro 2 offers a design that is dull for those looking for razzmatazz. However, the set is convenient with faux-leather comfortable cushions, smart sensors that automatically pause your music when you remove your headphones.

  • Battery life

As for battery life, you'll be quite impressed with Backbeat Pro 2 which offers an incredible 24-hour battery life which sips even less power when idle a killer feature for frequent travelers. The headphone's staggering battery life is enhanced by the active noise canceling feature which is incredible in muffling the sounds of flights and train rides.

  • Value

If you want to drop Beyerdynamic Amiron wireless or Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II), the Backbeat Pro 2 should be on top of your shopping list since most of its features are above average.

Features an impressive battery life, supreme comfort, excellent sound quality and the ability to pair two devices at the same time makes this headphone worth the value for the money. Though the ANC does a commendable job in blocking noise, it can't match the benchmark set by Bose.

Pros

  • Solid battery life
  • Amiable sound
  • Multi-point Bluetooth
  • Great value for money

Cons

  • The bass is a bit lacking

<Comfortable and lightweight Bluetooth Headphones>

Why we like it: The Mpow H5 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth headphones are quite remarkable with the look of Bose QC35 and feel of Sony's WH1000XM2 with good sound, active noise cancellation, and a much lower price point.

Mpow H5 Active Noise Cancelling Headphone

  • Performance

The H5 produces an impressive sound although the ANC is not strong enough to cancel all ambient noise for frequent commuters and those in noisy environments. Mpow H5 features a closed-back with a decently balanced tremble, a heavy consistent and punchy bass which is a bit roomy. The mid-range is good but a little muddy while the soundstage is mediocre- at –best.

The sound quality may be a bit leaky at higher volumes making it audible to the people around you. Additionally, the isolation on this headset is lacking and precisely at the bottom of the barrel especially against ambient chatter or high-frequency sounds.

  • Comfort

Unlike Sony WH1000XM2, the H5 is user-friendly with a simple control panel that features a noise-canceling on and off button, a play/pause button, and volume buttons. H5 lacks high-end features; however, it provides an excellent user experience.

These budget headphones are bigger and more comfortable and fold down to a small compact size that is easy to carry around in a semi-hard case. In case your ears are a little more prominent the ear cups may feel slightly smaller and scrunched.

  • Battery life

The Mpow H5 boasts 18 hours of continuous play with ANC and Bluetooth enabled if you're operating on medium volume. It can last you a full day with heavy use. The cans feature a fast charging time which is quite impressive, but the lack of a power saving feature like an auto-off timer is very disappointing.

  • Value

Regarding quality, the Mpow H5 cannot contend with giants like Bose and Amiran headphones, but these sets are more attractive due to their low price point. Also, they're not the best for traveling since they are a little bulky. However, the ANC feature is a massive bonus in this pair of cans.

  • Verdict

If you're looking for an excellent sounding and low priced reliable and decently built headphones with a strong, robust design the Mpow H5 over-ear is worth considering.

Pros

  • Impressive ANC feature
  • Sleek design
  • Affordable
  • Decent for mixed usage
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • Sounds a bit roomy
  • Critical listeners will find the soundstage very spacious
  • Below-average microphone

<Best wireless headphone under $50>

iJoy Rechargeable Wireless Headphones Bluetooth

Why we like it: If you're not willing to part with over a $100 for a pair of cans such as Plantronics Backbeat wireless at or the Sennheiser HD 4.50, then you can go for iJoy Matte Finish Premium rechargeable wireless headphones at an unbelievable cheap price with a powerful Bluetooth and an improved sound quality.

  • Performance

Undoubtedly, this set of cans won't cost you a month's salary, but it comes with a set of compromises as a result of price point. Despite the price, iJoy Matte Finish wireless headphones surprisingly offer high-resolution sound with aptX, clear highs, and rich bass – something that you don't quite expect with cheap wireless over-ears that feature a noise isolation attribute.

The thick, accurate bass responds well while the closed protein ear cushion blocks out noise from ambient sources for better playback performance. The cans also feature an improved equalization with an extended frequency range. The overall quality exceeds most people's expectations, and they are super easy to sync with your Bluetooth.

  • Comfort

The iJoy Matte Finish wireless feature memory protein earmuffs, an adjustable headband that offers protection and support. However, this pair of sets may not be flexible enough for people with medium to bigger ear sizes since the earmuff is too small while the tension on the band is far too high a problem that can cause pain.

  • Battery life

Though the iJoy cans are like a budget buy, don't let them fool you as they feature an average of 4 to 6 hours of playback on a single charge and can last for a few days depending on usage and ensures that you get every dollar's worth. Overall, the cans exceed the expectations for less than $20.

Verdict: The iJoy offers excellent sound quality and a fair noise cancellation performance without breaking the bank. The biggest issue with these over-ears is the discomfort caused by those snug-fitting small earmuffs that can are a real pain on the ears. But, if you are willing to make the tradeoff, then these are a fantastic pair for the price an excellent choice for fitness buffs.

Pros

  • Inexpensive
  • Great quality
  • Clean, crisp crystal clear sound
  • Adjustable headband

Cons

  • Not the most comfortable for people with medium and large ears

<Noise Cancelling Headphones for running>

COWIN E7 Active Noise Cancelling Headphones Bluetooth Headphones

Why we like it: This pair of ears Bluetooth headphones is nothing but an all-around stellar product with a fun and edgy design and excellent sound quality performance. For less than a hundred bucks, you wouldn't expect to get the goods that Cowin E7 active noise-canceling headphones would offer.

The noise cancellation function works well with both wired and wireless modes to give you a crisp, powerful sound for better playback enjoyment.

  • Performance

This budget-friendly cans with a simple, good-looking design feature decent audio that's good quality enough to compete with the likes of Plantronics Backbeat wireless and V-Moda Crossfade II wireless. Unfortunately, the noise-canceling feature is not all that great, but the sound quality is surprisingly impressive with wholesome sound, a handful of user-friendly features and a stellar battery life.

While the sound performance is a big shocker especially because of the low-cost point, Cowin E7 features precise guitars, clear vocals, clean bass, and a crisp percussion. The punchy bass pushes through various genres of music though they tend to sound a little dark and muffled.

  • Comfort

The Cowin E7 features a cheap, comfortable design and build quality but feel slightly inferior.  The headband is not adjustable to accommodate different head shapes and sizes though they are well padded providing optimum cushion and hours of listening. Additionally, they are slightly bulky and tight.

These wireless over-ears are relatively lightweight at 0.8 ounces with a pillowy –like softness and protein ear cushions. Though the build quality feels low grade, the ear cup features a seamless piece of matte-textured plastic.

Unlike the Mpow H5 Active Noise Cancelling Bluetooth headphones which feel crumply on the ears, Cowin E7 have a decent breathable design though they may warm up your ears during more intense exercises.

  • Battery life

The E7 headsets boast an incredibly long battery life with 30 hours of playtime per full charge with ANC mode enabled, or even Bluetooth activated giving you a long time of enjoying music on these cans.

However, the downside of this long battery life is that you have to leave them for 3 hours so that they can fully charge. Also, a 10 minutes charge cannot give you 45 minutes of playback. Besides, they don't automatically turn off when charging- this is not ideal.

Verdict: The Cowin E7 headphones offer an above average performance, good sound quality, build quality and an excellent overall presentation. They feature great wireless range, and above-average battery life and a significant noise reduction for travel, busy office or noisy environments. They are okay for casual listening and light jogging but not ideal for frequent travelers who need more convenient, compact, sturdy and portable headphones.

Pros

  • Incredible battery life
  • Low sound leakage
  • Great wireless range
  • Comfortable
  • Great fit for running

Cons

  • Slightly bulky design
  • Relatively narrow soundstage due to their closed back

Bottom line

If you're looking for a good pair of wireless headphones with neat features and would cost half as much as Bose, Sony or Amiron wireless, Plantronics Backbeat pro two would be our best bet.

Most importantly, good sound quality with incredible battery life, supreme comfort and the ability to pair more than one device would make an excellent travel headphone as featured by Bose, Sony, Amiron and The Sennheiser HD 4.50 headphones.

Moreover, we are in an era where you deserve the peace of mind when enjoying your best mix of music with ANC feature that is guaranteed on varying degrees by all the headphones in this review.
