Bose’s Latest Headphones Tackle a New Frontier of Noise Cancelling, But Is It Worth the Extra Cash?

The new Bose Noise Cancelling Headphones 700 aren’t so much a successor to the current QC35 II headphones. Instead, they’re an addition to Bose’s line of noise-cancelling headphones. A pricey addition. At £350 the 700s are £50 more than the QC35s. The step up in price doesn’t include huge tweaks to the noise-cancelling or the audio profile of the headphones. Instead, the big improvement and the one Bose hope you’ll pay a premium for, is superior audio fidelity when talking on the phone or using a digital assistant. Read More >>

Jabra Changed How Noise-Cancelling Headphones Work, and I Like It

It was exciting when Jabra announced its latest Bluetooth headphones at CES earlier this year. The £279.99 Jabra Elite 85h look like a beefed-up version of the company’s well-reviewed Move wireless headphones, and inside there’s an intriguing surprise: artificially intelligent noise-cancelling technology that learns your routines and adjusts the feature accordingly. It sounds weird and almost like a gimmick, but after spending nearly a month testing the new Jabra headphones, I have to admit that I like them. Read More >>

AirPods are Rubbish Compared to the New Powerbeats Pro

The only earbuds more recognisable than the tortured white teardrops that are AirPods might be Powerbeats. These things look like rubberised hoop earrings glued to plastic boxes, flipped upside down and strung together with a naff wire. Well, at least they used to look like that. Beats just released a new truly wireless model called Powerbeats Pro, and they feel like a revelation. I can’t believe how much I like these earbuds and want to wear them and don’t even feel embarrassed when I do. Read More >>

Master & Dynamic’s Wireless Noise-Cancelling Headphones Beat Sony in Two Important Ways

Sony has been the king of noise-cancelling headphones for the past couple of years, but a new royal has arrived: the new Master & Dynamic MW65. This finely crafted set of cans represent the company’s first attempt at noise-cancelling over-ear headphones, which might seem like a disadvantage. However, Master & Dynamic’s greatest strengths shine through in the headset’s luxurious design and exquisite sound quality. (Before you get too excited: The MW65 headphones are £450. Pretty isn’t cheap.) Sony still has a lot to offer in this battle, but it should guard the throne carefully. Read More >>

At this point, it’s practically impossible to go outside without seeing white earbuds sticking out of people’s heads, and with sales of Apple AirPods expected to rise to between 50 and 55 million this year, that phenomenon probably won’t go away anytime soon. Read More >>

Jabra just released an updated version of the headphones, the Move Style, with improved battery life and a new range of colours. The best part is they’re still really good and really cheap.

Finally, the Slick Bluetooth Upgrade My Beloved Shure Earbuds Deserve

Every year or so Gizmodo's Adam Clark Estes tells me he’s found a pair of headphones that are genuinely exceptional, and so I, being a headphones hoarder, am obliged to try them out. Usually, he’s right! But when it comes to in-ear headphones, his suggestions have left me filled with regret and my wallet woefully empty. You can’t just borrow your buddy’s in-ear headphones or earbuds—it’s disgusting. So Adam suggests a pair of earbuds and tells me they fit great, and I buy them and immediately hate them, and thank goodness my flatmate and my dad don’t have the same hang-ups about sharing earbuds, you know?
