Welcome to the Top 10 Wireless Headphones list of 2020. We update our lists frequently, the opinions are of our own.
1. Sony WH-1000XM3
The Sony 100X series are right up there with the best wireless headphones on the market. The sound quality is awesome along with their ever-improving noise-cancellation capability.
These headphone are one step ahead of their rivals in almost every way; they have better sound quality and they block out noise better. But one feature stands out the most which is the fast attention mode which allows all outside noise without taking off the headphones off, ideal if you’re a chatting to a work colleague for a quick moment before getting back to work.
So in conclusion, these headphones are great-sounding and feature-packed, great travel companions and all-around excellent wireless headphones.
2. Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700
Bose have always been up there with the best wireless headphones but have really outdone themselves with the Headphones 700, mainly due to the noise cancellation they provide.
These are a great alternative to the Sony headphones above as they just sound amazing just as you would expect from Bose when it comes to headphones.
Jabra Elite 85H
The Jabra elite are known for offering their leading wireless headphones which come with a great design and world leading battery life with plenty of personalisation in terms of sound profiles.
Considering it’s this companies first time at creating premium wireless headphones, the end result is quite impressive and can not wait for the company on producing their next headphones, as I’m sure they are only going to improve.
4. Bose QuietComfort 35 II
Bose, as you will of known by now are an excellent brand when it comes to headphones, more specifically wireless headphones.
These are an updated version of the excellent QC35 but have been updated with Google Assistant, so other than that, they’re pretty much the same. However, with the added functionality of a Google Assistant button which allows you to use the noise cancellation Bose is known for, amazing sound quality and very comfortable to wear and the battery life is very good.
5. Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless
The Beyerdynamic Amiron Wireless are maybe the best-sounding wireless headphones you’ll come across, apparently. Sound is spacious, detailed. They have a fairly bulky design and their noise isolation is average at most which make them not that great for travelling. However, if you’re trying to find the simplest sound from a wireless headphone, this is more likely it.
Just be prepared to fork out a lot of money for them as they’re very expensive.
6. Audio-Technica ATH-M50xBT
Audio-Technica have had a long history of creating high-quality headphones but not just headphones, microphones, accessories they produce studio-quality sound without the attached cord.
The ATH-M50xBTs are designed for high-end sound performance. And it shows, their design is nice, and are cozy with an all-rounded great sound quality. Their battery life and Bluetooth connectivity are impressive, but the microphone isn’t too great, but I wouldn’t let that put you off buying these studio grade headphones.
7. Sennheiser Momentum Wireless
One of the best wireless headphones in the sense of sound quality, these Sennheiser headphones sound unbelievable, with a high level of detail in the bass.
Their customisation in regards to the noise cancellation is a nice tough, although great, they still don’t compare to the noise cancellation as the Bose or Sony headphones along with the battery life.
8. AKG N60NC Wireless
One of our favourites, the AKG N60NC are headphones which are worth way more than they currently are on the market.
At the price they are, they offer one of the best headphones for the money, great sound quality and top noise cancellation.
The only downside to these headphones is the fact they are on-ear instead of over-ear, meaning that over a long time span they can become uncomfortable. Although, some would say this is advantageous due to them being compact which often means they’re easy to take with you on the go.
9. Grado GW100 Wireless headphones
The Grado GW100s sound ok with a good clear auto quality and bass.
Although the Bluetooth connection is not the best compared to some of the others, they still works alright and wouldn’t let that put you off a purchase.
There is also a choice of having full wireless or wired connection via an AUX cable if you’re someone who prefers having that, or at least having that option of choice.
Overall, the Grado GW100s are designed for a reasonably niche market of individuals who are looking for a natural sound.
10. Beats Solo3 Wireless Headphones
Beats’ Solo3 Wireless headphones look almost identical to the Beats Solo 2 Wireless mainly because on the outside. However, Beats haven’t really updated the design. The big and main change is on the inside; The Solo3 uses Apple’s new W1 custom Bluetooth chip, which improves battery life incredibly well and makes pairing the headphone with Apple devices really straight-forward.
The headphone works just fine with Android and other Bluetooth-enabled devices as well as iOS and with a impressive battery life of 40 hours. That’s a huge jump over the 12 hours that the Beats Solo2. They also feature Beats’ Fast Fuel feature, which provides you with 3 hours of battery life from just a 5-minute charge, ideal if you forgot to charge them and are in a hurry.
