The best headphones right now thanks to flawless noise cancellation

Aside from slightly fiddly touch controls, there’s really very little to complain about here. The noise cancellation is still absolutely unmatched, and it’s backed up audio that’s almost as good. Throw in reliable Bluetooth connections, 30-hour battery life, and (joy of joys) USB-C charging...More

Aside from slightly fiddly touch controls, there’s really very little to complain about here. The noise cancellation is still absolutely unmatched, and it’s backed up audio that’s almost as good. Throw in reliable Bluetooth connections, 30-hour battery life, and (joy of joys) USB-C charging, and these are basically the best wireless headphones around right now.

The customizable and adaptive NC smarts prove Sony's tech has come on in leaps and bounds since the original MDR-1000X model, while improvements in battery life and sound quality make for a well-rounded listening experience. If the company can just take a leaf out of Bose's book and add dynamic device switching in the next version, they'll be virtually untouchable for a long while to come.

Sony has hit an absolute home run with the Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones. They look great, are very comfortable, offer excellent noise cancellation, and sound good too. In fact, we would argue that these are the best noise cancelling headphones on the market, beating out even the likes of the Bose QuietComfort 35 headphones, which have long remained the go-to.

These cans are comfortable, sound incredible and the noise cancellation means you can listen to music almost anywhere without hearing any of life's irritating distractions. Sony's build quality is also superb and despite being put through hours of intense testing our review pair still look and feel as good as new. It's really hard to find fault with the WH-1000XM3 but if we had one criticism it would be their inability to quickly switch between Apple devices.

They work with every kind of phone, music player, tablet or computer. The included cable means anything without Bluetooth can still take advantage of them and the Bluetooth means phones without headphone jacks are fine too. The sound quality is excellent as is the comfort and they seem durable over long periods of use too. Considering Bluetooth was previously not considered an option for high quality audio it's striking how good these headphones actually are.
