Everywhere you go someone is wearing headphones, from the train and bus to walking down the street, people wear them while driving the car, or hanging with friends.
Headphones are the ‘go to’ for spending quality time listening to music and podcasts, watching movies, or working shut off from the surrounding sounds of the world.
There are many variations of these super trendy headphones including overhead headphones and in-ear headphones, they are wireless with long-lasting life, they are big and bold, or small and discreet, and they almost certainly finish an outfit off with style!
We have put together four of the best that we totally rate. They each bring something different to the table; so read on to see, which you think would suit you.
Let’s start with the overhead headphones from both Lindy and Bang & Olufsen, both are super comfy, easy to wear, have excellent sound quality, and are seriously sexy to look at. Take a look below and decide for yourself.
Lindy, BNX-100 Wireless
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Priced at £119.00, from www.amazon.co.uk, www.lindy.co.uk, www.richersounds.com
The Lindy BNX-100 wireless noise cancelling headphones have been developed to deliver superb quality Hi-Fi sound using advanced aptX® technology. Thanks to ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) technology and high-quality protein leather ear pads which provide a snug fit, up to 95% of external low frequency noise is removed, so your listening experience goes undisturbed.
Featuring revolutionary Auto-Pause technology, which pauses audio when the headphones are taken off, an integrated microphone and controls for music and handsfree calling the BNX-100s are the perfect travel companion.
Audio Pass-Through mode allows the user to let in outside noise and voices on demand without having to remove the BNX-100s, ideal for ordering in-flight meals, brief work conversations or hearing important announcements.
A long-lasting rechargeable battery life of up to 15 hours means the BNX-100s provide a continuous flow of your audio for an uninterrupted wireless listening experience, while the included 3.5mm audio cable ensures audio can carry on playing even longer.
For added convenience the charge status of the BNX-100 can be monitored thanks to an integrated battery monitor, or on the screen of compatible iOS devices. The BNX-100s have also been designed to provide optimum audio performance whilst in ANC (Active Noise Cancelling) mode, however they will continue to operate without ANC being active so that you continue to use the headphones even if the battery runs out.
Bang & Olufsen, BEOPLAY H91 Headphones
Priced at £450, from www.bang-olufsen.com
The over-ear headphones deliver Bang & Olufsen Signature Sound with advanced ANC (active noise cancellation). The acoustics are expertly tuned by their sound engineers to deliver rich and powerful listening experiences. Transparency Mode lets you hear your surroundings, when you need to.
The new Beoplay H9i are updated with a host of new features including Transparency Mode and a proximity sensor that pauses playback when you remove your headphones — and resumes it when put back on. A new bass port brings even deeper bass performance.
The elegant over-ear cushions wrap your ears in soft lambskin and adaptive memory foam for an ultra comfortable fit, even during extended use. Polished, anodised aluminium and genuine cowhide leather complete Bang & Olufsen’s most luxurious design yet.
Enjoy up to 18 hours of wireless playtime with ANC, or up to 23 ours with Bluetooth only. For those longer journeys on the road, you can easily exchange the rechargeable battery or simply attach the audio cord to keep the music playing.
Tap and swipe to answer calls, skip tracks, adjust the volume and more. With intuitive touch gestures directly on the ear cups, you have quick access to your most used features without needing to take your phone out.
Moving on to in-ear headphones now and the two we are putting forward are by FOCAL and RevoNext. If in-ear buds are your thing, and let’s face it we all have some that came with our mobile phones, then these two are next gen level for comfort, design, quality and style. Will you become a fan?
